This closure is due to the discontinuation of ESPNHS. We have had a lot of great experiences being part of the greatest sports media company in the world. Beginning with the Top 25 Weekend Scoreboard on Saturday, Sept. 15 all new updates will be available on a temporary blog.
For instructions on how to get to the new blog, we’ll have everything ready to go on Saturday morning and will send the link on our Twitter page @CalHiSports. Feel free to email email@example.com or go to our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/CalHiSportscom/162897664162

Workman H.S./ESPNHSEvelyn Herrera from Workman (City of Industry) was one of the state's leading scorers.Choosing the 31st annual all-state teams is a process that begins with this list of more than 300 players on our board. Some of those who’ve been on our all-state teams in the past have included Cheryl Miller, Lisa Leslie, Diana Taurasi, Candice Wiggins and Marion Jones.
Note: This list is compiled so that coaches, parents and readers can submit additions, corrections and make comments (anonymously of course) about which players should be selected when all information is received. Nominations are always welcome. This list will be updated and posted one more time prior to the teams being finalized by April 20 and announced over the following weekend.
