As a consequence of the 2020 high school baseball and softball seasons being canceled after not even one-third of scheduled games were played in the state, we cannot produce all-state teams in those sports for 2020. We do not want to forget about those seniors from the Class of 2020, however, who were going to […]
Santa Ana Mater Dei’s Kevin Kiernan notches the 762nd win of his girls basketball coaching career Wednesday night at tourney opener in San Diego, which sets new state record. By luck, we happened to have someone there who could provide details about the historical milestone. We also have updated our exclusive all-time state coaching record […]
For this week, we are doing the next-to-last divisional state rankings in softball BEFORE the Tuesday section playoff games and will be doing baseball AFTER those contests. There just aren’t that many games left in softball compared to baseball with all sections done except the Southern and North Coast. Top-ranked teams entering the final week...
Loss by previous No. 2 Gahr not only screws up the CIF Southern Section Division I seedings, but also drops down the Gladiators in this week’s State Top 20. The other big move was to elevate Foothill of Pleasanton back up to No. 11 after it beat previous No. 11 Amador Valley behind ace pitcher...
The first 11 teams in these rankings stay put after all had strong weeks, but after that we have a lot of movement, including unbeaten Oakdale going from No. 18 to No. 13. Oaks Christian also jumps from No. 19 to No. 14. For the newcomers this week, we have three and they all went...
It’s been a strong season so far at Harvard-Westlake with a top four state ranking and on Thursday the Wolverines capped a perfect run through the super-tough Mission League. They’ll now head to the CIF Southern Section Open Division as a co-favorite with Windward of Los Angeles and they’ll do it with a head coach […]
The 35th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Softball Teams roll on with those players named from schools that were in CIF section playoffs during the 2017 season that made them medium or small school in class. And now with competitive equity based playoff divisions, determining whether a player is from a team that’s small, medium or […]
There were closer calls among several of the other State Player of the Year choices in softball this year than at the top, but in the end joining Ms. Softball Taylor Dockins of Norco as a statewide honoree are Megan Faraimo from San Diego Cathedral Catholic, Kinzie Hansen of Norco, Nicole May from Foothill of […]
In addition to overall State Coach of the Year Mike Noel of Clovis, we have additional state coaching honors for the 2017 season going to J.J. Vaivao from Buena of Ventura and Flo Galindo from Village Christian of Sun Valley.
In addition to overall No. 1 Los Alamitos, others that can claim they are mythical state champions for 2017 are Camarillo (Division II), Buena of Ventura (D3), South of Torrance (D4) and Village Christian of Sun Valley (D5). We do try to look for teams outside of the CIF Southern Section, but couldn’t choose one […]
