    Football: CIF-SS preseason polls

    August 26th, 2015, 9:27 am by By STEVE FRYER

    Three Orange County teams are No. 1 in their CIF-Southern Section rankings. Of course, two of the divisions, the Southwest and Southern, are exclusively Orange County divisions so an O.C. team will be No. 1. St. Margaret's is No. 1 in the East Valley Division, a smaller-schools division that covers a large geographic area.

    It is interesting that Santa Margarita is ranked ahead of Mater Dei in the Pac-5 Division. Our O.C. top 25 had Mater Dei at No. 1, Santa Margarita at No. 3. In a preason ranking, the difference between Nos. 1 and 3 is slim.

    Baseball: Huntington Beach, Mission Viejo semifinals moved to 4 p.m.

    June 1st, 2015, 9:44 am by By STEVE FRYER

    The starting time of Huntington Beach vs. Norco in a Division 1 semifinal Tuesday at Blair Field in Long Beach was changed to 4 p.m.

    Mission Viejo's home game against Crescenta Valley will start at 4 p.m. on Tuesday. That is a Division 2 semifinal. Crescenta Valley has final exams earlier in the day.

    The Division 1 semifinals usually are played as a doubleheader at Blair. It made more sense to have the other Division 1 semifinal, Saugus vs. Hart of Newhall, near those schools' location so that game is at College of the Canyons on Tuesday at 2 p.m.

    Huntington Beach-Norco is the only semifinal at Blair on Tuesday and will begin at 4 p.m.

    All other semis are at 3:15 p.m.
