High school sports: Southern California regionals announced; No NorCal regionals, state track and field meet - HIGHSCORE
High school sports: Southern California regionals announced; No NorCal regionals, state track and field meet
The California Interscholastic Federation announced Wednesday its plan to hold one-week Southern California regional playoffs in seven sports, including basketball, baseball and softball, starting June 5 and ending June 26. The other sports include soccer, tennis, boys volleyball and golf.

Because only two of six Northern California sections — Central Coast and Oakland — are even holding playoffs, there will be no Northern California regionals. That also means for a second straight year there will be no state track and field or state swimming and diving championships.

The 2021 state track and field meet, scheduled for Buchanan High school in Clovis, would have been the 102nd in history. 

The CIF, which only takes over playoffs at the regional and state level, had no choice. The organization's hands were tied. Section champions feed into the regional playoffs and with no champs to advance, regionals were impossible. 

"Ultimately with only CCS and Oakland offering playoffs, regional playoffs in the North weren't feasible," CIF Executive Director Ron Nocetti said. "We wanted to wait as long as possible to make sure there were no update or changes (with the sections)."

Though disappointed that his athletes can't move on, CCS commissioner Dave Grissom said he's heard no complaints.

"This pandemic has been absolutely life changing and life altering for so many families," he said. "In the big scheme of things, for there not to be Northern California championships is OK. It's completely OK. It's just one of those things. It was impossible to pull off. I haven't heard one coach, athletic director or school be upset about it."

All four Southern California sections — the Southern, San Diego, Los Angeles and Central — will finish up their playoffs in late May or early June and then enter a one-week regional playoff.

The section playoffs must be completed by the following dates in these respective sports: boys and girls soccer (May 29), boys and girls team tennis (May 29), boys volleyball (June 5), boys and girls golf (June 12), boys and girls basketball (June 12), baseball (June 19) and softball (June 19).

The last date for regional championships for each sport: boys and girls soccer (June 5), boys and girls team tennis (June 5), boys volleyball (June 12), boys and girls golf (June 15), boys and girls basketball (June 19), baseball (June 26) and softball (June 26).

With just one week to complete tournaments, each bracket will be no more than eight teams. That will create many more brackets than normally, especially in basketball.

Teams and student athletes will likely be faced with many conflicts, concerning both graduation and club teams. Nocetti is hoping for flexibility in all cases.

"We understand that section championships are top priority," Nocetti said. "But we hope those teams communicate as soon as possible their plans on participation at regionals."

The Southern California baseball and softball regionals should be very interest. Currently, three SoCal teams are in the MaxPreps Top 25 national baseball rankings and four SoCal softball squads are among the nation's 25 best.

High school football: La Salle's schedule release includes games against national power IMG Academy - HIGHSCORE
High school football: La Salle's schedule release includes games against national power IMG Academy
The National Football League is set to release its 2021 schedule Wednesday and were about 100 days from the start of the high school football fall season. Some teams, like La Salle (Cincinnati), are taking a cue from the NFL and releasing their schedule.

The Lancers play in the Greater Catholic League-South, one of the toughest in Ohio, and also face a difficult non-league schedule headlined by a showdown against 2020 MaxPreps National Champion, IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.).

"We want our kids to play the best teams. So, here we go," La Salle head coach Pat McLaughlin said.

McLaughlin and the Lancers face three teams ranked in the final MaxPreps Top 25. La Salle hosts the Ascenders on Sept. 3 at Lancer Stadium. IMG went wire-to-wire as the No. 1 team in the country last fall.

The Lancers travel to Kentucky to face Trinity (Louisville) on Sept. 10. The Shamrocks won their eighth state title since 2010 and finished 10th nationally last fall, going 10-0 while outscoring the opposition 429-48.

Three weeks later, on Oct. 1, La Salle hosts Indiana 5A champion Cathedral (Indianapolis). The Fighting Irish finished at No. 19 in the MaxPreps Top 25 after going 13-1.

La Salle was 8-3 last season, falling 14-10 to Washington (Massillon) in the Ohio Division II semifinals. The Lancers won a state title in 2019, their fourth since 2014. The 2021 schedule they've compiled should prepare the Lancers for all-comers in the postseason.

MaxPreps starts releasing its preseason high school football content with the preseason MaxPreps Top 25 on June 23. Expect to see the Lancers featured in our Top 10 toughest schedules dropping later in July.

Prolific Prep (31-3) faces No. 3 Sunrise Christian Academy (Bel Aire, Kan.) (19-3) in tomorrow's 2 p.m. (ET) quarterfinal.

In a thrilling nightcap, Oak Hill Academy outlasted No. 15 Pace Academy (Atlanta, Ga.) 84-77 to snap the Knights' 28-game win streak.

The Warriors were paced by an outstanding performances from five-star sophomore Caleb Foster, who finished with 23 points, seven assists and three rebounds and three-star senior Camryn Carter who approached a triple-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Oak Hill shot 57 percent from the field.

Florida State signee Matthew Cleveland led Pace Academy (28-2) with a game-high 30 points and eight rebounds.

Oak Hill Academy (20-8) draws top-ranked Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.) (21-1) in their 4 p.m. (ET) quarterfinal. The Eagles beat the Warriors twice this season by a combined 55 points.
