Since we hadn’t gone through all of our files and posted all of these state record categories before on this site, it took some time to compile all of them. But here they are. All updated girls basketball state records in the team categories. We’ll have the individuals coming next week. Amazing totals from great...
We’ll have a separate post coming on Tuesday after all of the big tournament finals on Monday that will reveal the actual all-decade all-state girls basketball teams for the 2010s, but for this first announcement we’re taking care of the major awards: State Player of the Decade, State Coach of the Decade, State School of […]
Stockton is becoming synonymous with knee injuries after State Freshman and State Sophomore of the Year Aquira DeCosta went down with a torn meniscus last week. Earlier in the week at the MLK Showcase, Sierra Smith, DeCosta’s former teammate now at Salesian, went down in a heap and later found out she tore her ACL....
Archbishop Mitty starts in the No. 1 position, but it’s not as clear-cut as in some other recent seasons. Long Beach Poly also was strongly considered for that ranking while Clovis West has its best team ever.

With all five starters back from a team that won the CIF Open Division state crown, St. Mary’s of Stockton is easy choice as preseason No. 1 for the state to start the 2015-16 season. It’s not even that hard to choose No. 2 and No. 3, either, as both Chaminade of West Hills and […]
Annual tour of key California summer events for girls basketball begins with a stop at Stockton Summer Classic hosted by Stockton Lincoln coach Chris Roemer. Short-handed St. Mary’s still way too talented for rest of the field in the Platinum Division but other players from other schools also impress.
