While we had a couple of pitchers with a huge number of strikeouts, they don’t make the Cal-Hi Sports record book. Those two and all four honorees, however, were exceptional for the week and have been for the season. One of the four is a well-known national recruit, but the other three are not. Our […]
This feature serves as our statewide collection of milestone achievements in California high school sports. We have more this week from baseball & softball with some season-ending performances in basketball. For girls hoops, there are outings of 62, 52, 43 and 41 points. For boys, the most prolific are 49 and 43. We also have...
Here’s a salute to the greatest high school coaches in California history. We’re doing it by compiling updated state records in numerous combined coaching categories, such as most CIF state team titles, most CIF section team titles, most all-time varsity coaching wins and most varsity head coaching seasons. All-time leaders in those categories are Don […]
The choices for State Junior Player of the Year, Sophomore Player of the Year and Freshman Player of the Year were equally difficult as for Ms. Softball. There’s not a no brainer of the bunch. We did have one for medium schools, however, since one of our six Ms. Softball finalists was from that category. […]
We have two weeks to go for this feature for this school year and we’ll be looking to feature those baseball and softball players who have led their teams to section titles. It was more challenging than expected in the north since rainouts forced some section finals into this week, but we found two from […]
The first major upset of the section playoffs this year already has taken place as previous No. 4 Grand Terrace fell in its CIF Southern Section Division I first-round game. That created some movement for this week’s rankings. The team that beat the Titans, Huntington Beach, went from unranked to No. 19 but has been...
For this second week in which baseball and softball players have taken over this feature from basketball, we have a player from San Luis Obispo County being chosen for the first time for Northern California. That’s because San Luis Obispo is now part of the CIF Central Section and all Central Section schools are NorCal […]
The season has actually already begun for a few teams in the CIF Southern Section plus the L.A. City and Central Sections. For the state rankings, the No. 1 team to start shouldn’t be much of a surprise due to the returning players at defending CIFSS D1 champion Norco. There’s also the usual powerhouse squads […]
It’s wacko Tuesday in the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs since two teams that have been near the very top of the state and national rankings all season — Los Alamitos and Orange Lutheran — both were eliminated in upsets. Nothing is that stunning in that bracket, but of course causes a lot of...
