By this time next week, a lot of spring games may be cancelled by the likely spread of the coronavirus, but for now we’ve had plenty of games to go through to find this week’s four honorees — two each for baseball and softball. They represent the communities of Porterville, San Juan Capistrano, San Francisco […]
Two of the very oldest schools in the state, Long Beach Poly and St. Ignatius of San Francisco, both go into this week’s rankings as newcomers after posting big wins last week. Only one of the two got that win in a playoff game, but the other one knocked off a team that was No....
The 36th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Softball Teams roll on with the best of the best among juniors, sophomores and freshmen. It’s harder for younger players to break through for either first team or second team underclass, but several did and those girls also emerge as contenders to be Ms. Softball State Player of the...
It’s time to get started on what we call all-state season at Cal-Hi Sports. It’s actually the third one for each year following January for football and April for boys & girls basketball. June is baseball and softball and we begin with the list of initial nominees for the 36th annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state softball […]
Since she’s been getting better and better, we knew at some point during her high school career that we’d be writing up Maya Brady from Oaks Christian of Westlake Village as a SoCal Player of the Week. That week became this one as she’s led the Lions to a 12-0 start. This week’s other honorees […]

Mater Dei ventures to Marymount and takes its fifth loss, which then created the difficulty of either leaving the Monarchs at No. 1 because they still have a head-to-head win over previous No. 2 Archbishop Mitty or moving up Mitty regardless. This week’s rankings also had to account for Lakewood beating Long Beach Poly and […]
We’ve already got some major shakeups but Mater Dei stays at No. 1 due to win on Tuesday by league rival Santa Margarita over a Marymount of Los Angeles squad that probably would have been a new No. 1 had it won. One of the Eagles’ early losses was to the Monarchs at a tournament […]
As is another of our traditions, we present our expanded, final Top 40 overall girls basketball team rankings, this time covering the 2015-16 season. Teams getting a bump based on the CIF state finals are Sierra Canyon, Alemany and Cajon. St. Mary’s of Stockton also finishes second in a close call based on overall season...
We select honorees for seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen and for each CIF division. The most difficult was for Division II with so many balanced scoring teams in the state playoffs. Like the boys, two of this year’s winners also had to be picked twice. For official writeup on the 2014-15 Ms. Basketball State Player […]
