    Reigning Register boys swimmer of the year Grant Shoults has committed to Stanford, the Santa Margarita senior-to-be announced Saturday.

    "Stanford has all the attributes I was seeking for my swimming career, education and future."

    Shoults earned the Register's top swimming award this past spring after capturing the 500-yard freestyle at the CIF-SS Division 1 finals in a county-record 4 minutes, 15.56 seconds and claiming the 200 freestyle in a national private high school record 1:34.54.

    July 17th, 2015, 8:08 pm by BY DAN ALBANO

    Santa Margarita wide receiver Dylan Crawford (6-1, 185), Orange County's second-ranked class of 2016 recruit, has narrowed his list of potential colleges and targeted a time frame for his decision.

    Crawford didn't play at the recent Edison passing tournament (foot) but shared his top-10 schools: Arizona, Arizona State, Miami, Michigan, Oregon, UCLA, USC, Stanford, Tennessee and Washington.

    So in the breakdown, the senior-to-be is interested in seven Pac-12 schools, one SEC, one Big Ten and one ACC.

    As for his decision, Crawford said: "I'll probably get it down to five (schools) and then I'll have a decision probably like second, third week of the season."

    He also recently attended The Opening in Beaverton, Ore. "It was good to see where I'm at," Crawford said of the tough competition.

    St. Browns enroll at Mater Dei

    June 22nd, 2015, 11:28 am by By STEVE FRYER

    Highly rated prospect Osiris St. Brown and his brother Amon-Ra St. Brown have enrolled at Mater Dei, Mater Dei athletic director Phil Bellomo confirmed today.

    The St. Brown brothers withdrew from Servite at the end of the 2014-15 school year.

    Osiris St. Brown, who will be a junior this coming school year, played receiver on the Servite varsity in 2014. Amon-Ra, who will be a sophomore, played running back and safety on the Friars freshman team.

    Osiris is among the top junior-to-be receiver prospects in California. He has scholarship offers from several colleges including Miami, Michigan and Notre Dame. Osiris, 6-foot-1 and 178 pounds, last year had 19 receptions and averaged 19 yards a reception.

    Bellomo did not know today if the St. Browns would make the change of residence that would make them eligible all season or if they would not move and thus have to sit out the first month of the 2015 season before becoming athletically eligible.

    Baseball: Saturday games

    May 15th, 2015, 7:38 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    Four games are on the Orange County baseball schedule Saturday (May 16).

    Garden Grove at Santiago, and Rancho Alamitos at La Quinta.Both at 9 a.m.

    Those Garden Grove League games are make-up games from Thursday. Both games were underway Thursday when rains forced postponement. Both must start from the beginning (according to the league constitution), which is bad news for Grove, which was leading Santiago, 4-0, and La Quinta, which was leading Rancho, 3-2.

    There all kinds of playoff scenarios from those games, too many to recount here. It is complicated.

    Also Saturday: JSerra at Santa Margarita at 9 a.m.; Servite at Mater Dei, 9 a.m.

    Baseball: Some games with big implications

    May 14th, 2015, 12:32 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    There are a few playoff berths to be settled. A look at a couple of leagues ...

    Empire -- Cypress is the league champion and will go to the Division 1 playoffs as the league's No. 1 playoff representative. If today Pacifica (6-3 in league) beats Valencia (5-4), Pacifica is the league's No. 3 team -- the league's final playoff berth. If Valencia beats Pacifica, they both finish 6-4 in league. The first tiebreaker is how those teams did vs. the league champion. Valencia was 1-1 vs. Cypress, Pacifica was 0-2. So, a Valencia win today gives the Tigers the No. 3 spot. Tustin is going to the playoffs, but whether as a No. 2 or No. 3 is to be determined.

    Note: Valencia-Pacifica rained out; awaiting rescheduling information.

    Trinity League -- JSerra and Orange Lutheran are 1-2, respectively. Up for grabs between Mater Dei (7-7 in league) and Santa Margarita (6-8) is the No. 3 berth, the final playoff berth in the Trinity League. If Mater Dei beats Servite today, then Mater Dei is the league's No. 3 team. If Santa Margarita beats JSerra and Mater Dei loses, then Santa Margarita and Mater Dei finish at 7-8 each. As Santa Margarita won two of three against Mater Dei, Santa Margarita would go as the No. 3 team.

    Note: Servite at Mater Dei has been rescheduled for Friday, 6 p.m., at Mater Dei. JSerra at Santa Margarita was moved to a Saturday, 9 a.m. start.
