It’s been a tough week for Southern California sports fans. The Lakers lose Kobe Bryant for six to nine months with a torn Achilles tendon, the Dodgers lose Zach Greinke for two or three months with a broken collarbone while also losing two out of three at Arizona and the Angels have started off [...]
In the not too distant future all of the coaches will not be gathering together on CIF selection Sunday. It won’t be necessary. It’s really not necessary now. All of the playoff pairings are online already and a lot of gas money would be saved by simply having the coaches log in to check [...]

Can anybody beat Dallas Shipp and La Mirada?
Should we just pencil in La Serna and La Mirada for the Southeast Division Championship right now? When you look at the records of these two teams and how they have achieved them, there’s really nobody close.
La Mirada is 7-1 with its only loss coming against Bishop Amat, [...]

The top seven teams just keep on trucking. Northview moves up to eight as the second best team in the Valle Vista just ahead of surprising Covina. Is their a better number ten team than Montebello?

2. La Mirada’s Gerry Myres, Xavier Williams of Paramount and El Monte’s Brandon Martinez all made Roggin’s Heroes Sunday night.
3. Terry Francona named the [...]
It finally happened and it happened convincingly. For the first time in 21 years El Monte knocked off Arroyo. It wasn’t close. El Monte jumped out to a 26-7 halftime lead and it was 32-7 as the Lions coasted from there.
It wasn’t exactly the way you expected Arroyo to go down but this Brandon [...]
