    July 12th, 2014, 5:07 pm by BY ANTONIO MORALES

    The bracket-makers for Edison's "Battle at the Beach" passing tournament on Saturday didn't do Los Alamitos any favors.

    In the Griffins' bracket was defending Open Division state champion St. John Bosco, Open division regional runner up Centennial of Corona, and 2012 Division 2 state champion Serra of Gardena.

    Los Alamitos went 1-2 in group play and 1-3 overall, but secured one of the biggest upsets of the day when it defeated St. John Bosco, 20-19, in the first round of pool play.

    Leading the way was junior quarterback Jack Telenko, who looked stellar against a young, inexperienced St. John Bosco defense.

    Telenko is transfer from Tesoro.

    Three Orange County high school players were selected on Day 2 of the Major League Baseball Draft.

    “Last night was rough,” Morgan said about the first day of the draft going by without his name being called. “I originally thought I was going to be a top 50, 60 pick, but I knew I was going today.

    “I am so excited to be a Texas Ranger, and in a way, I get to stay on the West Coast. I’m excited to see what they have in store for me, and to show them what I can do.”

    May 31st, 2014, 3:00 pm by ANTONIO MORALES

    Here are some notes from Friday's CIF-SS Masters Meet. The top six in each event moved on to state this upcoming week. Athletes could also advance to state if they hit a certain state-qualifying mark, which varied for each event: 

    Mater Dei's Malik McMorris showed off his versatility on Friday.

    McMorris cleared the state-qualifying mark of 57-09 in the shot put when he recorded a 58-07.00 on his final throw of the day.

    In the discus, McMorris threw for a state-leading 192-11. McMorris was the only boy in the CIF-SS to move on to state in both events.

    Tesoro sophomore Amanda Gehrich impressed with a 4:46.53 in the girls 1,600 to finish third. She was the only county girl to qualify for state in the race.

    Sunset, PCL to appeal football placements

    May 23rd, 2014, 8:02 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    The Sunset and Pacific Coast leagues in football are among the Orange County leagues that plan to appeal their placement in playoff divisions for future school years.

    This week the CIF-Southern Section released its recommended playoff groupings for 2014-15 and 2015-16. Leagues can appeal their placements Wednesday. If the appeals process does not settle the issues, then the CIF-SS Council would meet on June 6.

    In football, the Sunset was sent to the West Valley Division with the Baseline, Foothill, South Coast and Southwestern leagues. The South Coast is the only other Orange County league in that group.

    Edison football coach Dave White said he is not happy with the West Valley placement because he wants the Sunset League to return to the Pac-5 Division.

    "I would rather play Mater Dei, Servite, Long Beach Poly like we did for 15 years," White said. "Playing those teams gets our kids excited. I would rather travel to the Bowl (Santa Ana Stadium) or Cerritos College for a game instead of going out to Temecula or Upland or wherever."
