IRVINE - There were passionate pleas, debate over the need for change and the emergence of an upstart proposal.
Orange County's final releaguing meeting for the 2014-2018 cycle produced plenty of intrigue Thursday but not much change.
County principals approved a counter-proposal by Brea Olinda that recommends that Yorba Linda mo
The Samuelson sisters have made quite a name for themselves in Orange County girls basketball.
They are known for their prolific 3-point shooting, accuracy from the foul and scoring. Bonnie and Karlie Samuelson won a CIF-SS Division 1A championship at Edison in 2011.
But for years county coaches have been saying, "Wait 'til you s
Wayne Carlson coaches girls basketball and boys golf at El Dorado, but he doesn't normally have to worry about much of an overlap between seasons. If his basketball team wins a couple of CIF-SS playoff games, maybe it's a week or two during which he has to wear two hats.
But this season, one in which great success on the court was
ONTARIO – The box score will read that Windward used eight players to win Saturday night’s CIF Southern California Open Division Regional Final.
But all things considered, the Wildcats really only play their starting five.
Those five, led by arguably the best high school point guard in the country, were too much for t
ONTARIO – When the Samuelson sisters, Karlie and Katie Lou, transferred to Mater Dei from Edison this season, Monarchs coach Kevin Kiernan knew he was going to be building a team with a different style.
"We're going to live and die with the 3," Kiernan said in the preseason.
That style carried Mater Dei all the way to the C
SANTA ANA – Having played second fiddle on the stat sheet to her sisters for her entire high school career, Karlie Samuelson probably couldn't be blamed if she occasionally felt overlooked.
But you won't find an inkling of jealousy. Samuelson, Mater Dei's do-everything senior combo guard, hasn't minded being the second scoring opti
Kim Cram-Torres has resigned as Brea Olinda's girls basketball coach for personal reasons and to spend more time with her family, the school announced on Wednesday.
Brea Olinda principal Jerry Halpin informed the school's players on Wednesday afternoon.
Cram-Torres, who will remain a teacher at Brea Olinda, was 44-14 with two Cen
CORONA – After losing an overtime stunner to Etiwanda in the CIF-SS Division 1AA semifinals, Mater Dei girls basketball coach Kevin Kiernan said he feels lucky for every game his team still gets to play.
The third-seeded Monarchs' season will continue after they beat second-seeded Santiago of Corona, 78-69, in the CIF Open D
LOS ANGELES – The best season in JSerra girls basketball history has come to a close. The program's playoff success just might be getting started.
The young Lions lost to Serra of Gardena, 52-43, in the CIF Southern California Regionals Division 4 semifinals at L.A. Southwest College on Tuesday.
JSerra (24-8) set a school r
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO – Point guard August Touchard is the lone senior on JSerra's girls basketball team and she plays like she doesn't want her season to end.
The rest of the Lions followed their team captain's lead and defeated St. Paul of Santa Fe Springs, 55-32, to advance to the CIF Southern California Regional semifinals
SANTA ANA – Nine days had passed since the Mater Dei girls basketball team was upset at Etiwanda in the CIF-SS semifinals. If the Monarchs' performance to open the CIF State Open Division playoffs Friday night was any indication, it was nine days too many.
Eager to get back on the court and right the ship, the third-seeded Monarchs
LA JOLLA– Troy's star players are Stanford-bound Briana Roberson, Oregon State-bound Gabriella Hanson and Denver-bound Alecia Dimas, but Troy coach Roger Anderson has said that freshman point guard Barbara Sitanggan has been the team's "glue" all season.
The fifth-seeded Warriors missed that glue

PLACENTIA – If El Dorado players were asked why they face Agoura in a playoff game for the second time in two weeks, they would probably answer by saying it's meant to be this way; a matter of fate.
When the Golden Hawks and Chargers first met in the CIF-SS Division 3AAA semifinals on Feb. 23, fate took a cruel turn on El Dorado (2
Mater Dei of Chula Vista coach David Monroe kept screaming from the sideline, "Somebody get on that shooter."
That shooter he was referring to was JSerra sophomore Coco Miller, and nobody from the Crusaders was able to stop her.
Miller finished with 26 points, including four 3-pointers, five rebounds and four assist
Mater Dei's girls basketball team was the overwhelming favorite to win its fifth consecutive CIF-SS title this season.
The Monarchs were ranked No. 1 in the county, No.1 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports and No.1 in the nation, and they were 28-0 heading into their CIF-SS Division 1AA semifinal game at Etiwanda last week. Then the Eagles pul
