Thousands of people gathered at more than 130 different sites located just outside of school campuses throughout the state on Friday to advocate for a safe return to high school sports. It wasn’t promoted or presented as rallies specifically for football, but there was a decided prevalence of football players in jerseys at most of […]
This is how the season looked after the sixth week during our week-by-week replay for three of the most exciting, unpredictable football seasons we’ve covered in our 40-plus years: 1981, 1994 and 2008. No. 1 teams remained Edison of Huntington Beach, Bishop Amat of La Puente and Long Beach Poly. For two of the seasons,...
Torrey Pines win its first-ever CIF state title and does it in the Open Division with last Saturday’s three-game sweep of Marin Catholic.

Torrey Pines of San Diego takes over at the top after Tuesday triumph this week over Redondo Union. Previous No. 1 Mater Dei is now third after losing to Redondo last week. All three of these teams will be at the upcoming Durango Fall Classic in Las Vegas, which is where the pecking order probably […]
For boys sports only, De La Salle of Concord was considered top five in the state in three sports and also had enough success in other sports to gain another state overall excellence honor. On the girls side, it also was close but CIF Southern Section Commissioner’s Cup winner Santa Margarita (Rancho Santa Margarita) was […]
For this week’s rankings, we have waited to finish them after Wednesday’s first-round of the CIF NorCal and CIF SoCal Open Division regional playoffs.
