This will be the 41st annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Teams that are going to be presented in the upcoming weeks. Here’s a first list of nominees on our board. These are the ones from CIF sections in Southern California (with the Central Section in the north). An updated list with more names will be […]
Girls BB: All-State Underclass 2023
Just a few days after our final all-state teams for boys basketball were released, it’s time to get going with the girls. These teams also are well into the fourth decade of being selected. We begin with the honorees for the 2022-23 season with the best of the best among juniors, sophomores and freshmen. Schools...
Girls BB All-State Nominees (Part 1)
Sorry that we were not able to get out the girls version of all-state basketball nominees before the crush of the CIF state championships held on March 10-11 in Sacramento. Still, here they are in the same format as the boys. We will just give people a bit shorter period of time to respond with […]
NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week
Our stops this week are in Hanford and Brentwood in Northern California, and Temecula and Ventura in Southern California. The two boys’ honorees also have rhyming last names, but by pointing that out we hope they don’t care. For the girls, we have a UCLA-bound senior and a freshman who obviously hopes to get similar […]
NEW All-State FB Nominations (CIFSS)
This is the updated, new list of nominees from the CIF Southern Section for the 43rd annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. These include new players listed from additional research plus those who have been nominated by a coach or parent. It’s still not too late to nominate someone who is not listed. It’s only...
Senior Salutes No. 6 (Softball/Baseball)
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 […]
Girls BB: New No. 1 For Coach K
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 […]
NEW Softball State Division Ranks
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...
NEW Softball State Top 20
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...
NEW Softball State Top 20
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...
