High school softball: Kentucky pitcher Madison McIntosh strikes out all 21 in perfect game masterpiece - OFFICIAL
High school softball: Kentucky pitcher Madison McIntosh strikes out all 21 in perfect game masterpiece
Madison McIntosh should pitch with a sore arm more often. The 5-foot-8 senior from Rockcastle County (Mt. Vernon, Ky.) recorded a perfect perfect game Tuesday, striking out all 21 batters she faced on just 77 pitches in a 3-0 win over Lincoln County.

Having pitched five games in the previous four days, McIntosh told MaxPreps said she entered Tuesday's game "a little sore," so she "just wanted to make sure that my fundamentals were correct and not try to overdue anything."

Instead, she overwhelmed Lincoln County, teammates and herself while becoming just the fourth pitcher in Kentucky High School Athletics Association history to post 21 strikeouts in a seven-inning game. She was the first to do so since Whitney Valentine pulled it off in 2003 for Elizabethtown versus Green County.

The last perfect perfect softball game — 21 batters, 21 strikeouts — MaxPreps could confirm was by Shannon Becker of Mahopac in 2019, the first ever in New York. Before that, Cedar Grove (N.J.) hurler Mia Faieta pulled off the feat in a 2017 playoff game.
According to the NFHS Record Book, more than 40 pitchers have struck out 21 batters or more in a 7-inning game. The record is 24 by Kelly Holmes of Plymouth Canton (Mich.) who sat down 24 against Walled Lake Western in 1992. There is no available list of perfect 21 K games, but clearly it is rare.

McIntosh, who will pitch next fall at Division III Berea College in Kentucky, has pitched multiple no-hitters but never a perfect game. Her previous strikeout high was 18.

"I was just completely shocked," she said Tuesday via text just hours after the victory. "In the back of my mind, I knew what was going on, but I just tried to play and not think about it."

With her dad and assistant coach Tim McIntosh calling the pitches, none of the Rockets let on they knew what was going on. But Madison knew. All of her pitches were working, primarily her rise, drop curve and fastball. She threw just one change up.

"My speed was up tonight, so my quick pitches were on," Madison said.

Her focus was helped being a scoreless tie until the sixth. That's when the Rockets (11-6-1) struck for three runs on RBI doubles from Raegan Chasteen and Casey Coleman, and a run-scoring single by Haley Pingleton

"By the seventh inning, I got nervous," Madison admitted. "But I just got on the mound and tried to blow it past them."

The right-hander did, She improved to 9-4 on the season while lowering her ERA to 1.75. She's struck out 136 in 84 innings.

The gem was particularly sweet considering she, like all players in Kentucky and most of the country, missed out on a 2020 season due to the pandemic.

It should also be the start of an eventful week. On Friday, she's planning on signing her letter of intent to Berea. The Mountaineers better sign her quick. After Tuesday's performance, more offers might be arriving.

"I honestly had no idea something like this was going to happen tonight," Madison said. "I am just completely on Cloud 9."

High school football: Historic win moves Norco to No. 10 in OFFICIAL Top 25 California rankings - OFFICIAL
High school football: Historic win moves Norco to No. 10 in MaxPreps Top 25 California rankings
In recent memory, some things just don't happen in Southern Section football.

1. Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and St. John Bosco (Bellflower) don't get threatened — unless they play each other.

2. Centennial (Corona) doesn't lose — unless it's to Mater Dei or Bosco.

3. Teams don't enter the MaxPreps Top 25 rankings in the Top 10.

All those "never-happens" happened last week.  

CALIFORNIA SPRING COMPUTER RANKINGS: Compare to human rankings below

• For the second straight game, No. 4 Servite (Anaheim) gave one of the two national juggernauts a heck of a game, losing 24-17 to No. 1 Mater Dei. The Monarchs needed a pick-six from junior cornerback Cameron Sidney and a strip-sack on the game's final play to eek out the win. The previous week, Servite (2-2) played toe-to-toe with No. 2 Bosco, losing 38-28.

• Previous No. 3 Centennial was stunned by unranked Norco 38-36, ending the Huskies' 57-game Big VIII league win streak. Junior quarterback Kyle Crum accounted for 265 yards and three touchdowns leading the Cougars to their first win over perennial national power Centennial since 2009.

• With the victory, Norco (3-0), which outscored its first two opponents by a cumulative score of 116-12, jumped from unranked to No. 10, just ahead of the Huskies and behind No. 9 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego).

Speaking of, Cathedral Catholic (3-0) hosts No. 22 Lincoln (San Diego) on Friday in the state Game of the Week that will decide the supremacy of the San Diego Section. Cathedral Catholic is coming off a bye while Lincoln won its third straight blowout, 52-0 over Madison (San Diego), giving the Hornets a 152-0 season edge over all opponents.
Cathedral Catholic junior running back Lucky Sutton leads the team with 463 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Ninth-ranked Cathedral Catholic hosts No. 22 Lincoln on Friday.

J.D. Davison named 2020-21 OFFICIAL Alabama High School Basketball Player of the Year - OFFICIAL
J.D. Davison named 2020-21 MaxPreps Alabama High School Basketball Player of the Year
Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school basketball. America's source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2020-21 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

J.D. Davison of Calhoun (Letohatchee, Ala.) is the 2020-21 MaxPreps Alabama High School Basketball Player of the Year. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound senior guard led the Tigers to a 16-8 record and the Class 2A semifinals.

Davison averaged 32.4 points, 10.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 3.6 steals per game. He scored 40 or more points in seven contests, including 45 points and 13 rebounds in the final game of his high school career, an 81-77 loss to Midfield.

Back in November, Davison opened his senior campaign with a career-high 57 points. He posted 14 double-doubles and a triple-double — finishing with 38 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and eight steals in Calhoun's first round state tournament contest.

An Alabama signee, Davison is regarded as the No. 9 prospect in the Class of 2021 according to 247Sports. He was announced as a McDonald's All-American last month.

Each state's MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team.

California high school football: Behind sophomore Matayo Uiagalelei, St. John Bosco beats Servite 38-28 - OFFICIAL
California high school football: Behind sophomore Matayo Uiagalelei, St. John Bosco beats Servite 38-28
In one of the biggest high school football games of the spring season in California, 2019 MaxPreps national champion St. John Bosco (Bellflower) beat Servite (Anaheim) 38-28 Friday night. The first half was a defensive battle between the Trinity League rivals with Servite carrying a 7-3 lead into halftime.

Houston Thomas scored the only touchdown on a three-yard run with 10:04 left in the second quarter.

Both offenses got on track in the second half as Katin Houser led the Braves on a six-play, 62-yard drive to begin the third quarter capped by a 26-yard touchdown pass to four-star sophomore tight end Matayo Uiagalelei.

Bosco's defense forced a three-and-out on the Friars' opening possession of the third quarter and took momentum of the game on the following drive that began at its own one-yard line. Sophomore Pierce Clarkson came in under center for the next drive as head coach Jason Negro continued to alternate quarterbacks on each possession. The result was a 99-yard drive culminated with a three-yard touchdown pass to Chedon James.

After only completing one pass in the first half, Servite's junior quarterback Noah Fifita started to find his rhythm and connected with five-star wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan four separate times on the ensuing drive after he was held without a catch in the first half.

Fifita scampered in from 11 yards out with 3:03 left in the third quarter to cut the Bosco lead to 17-14.

The Braves answered two plays later as three-star junior running back Jabari Bates took it 75 yards to the house to increase the lead to 24-14. He finished the night with 14 carries for 170 yards.

Fifita connected with McMillan on a 64-yard pass to get inside the red zone, then found the five-star receiver a couple of plays later for a three-yard score with 1:33 left in the third quarter to cut the lead to 24-21.

The biggest play of the game came on the following drive for St. John Bosco as it faced a fourth-and-eight on Servite's 12-yard line. Clarkson threw a perfect ball to the 6-foot-6, 265-pound Uiagalelei, who went up and snagged it for his second score of the night to take a 31-21 lead with 9:57 left.

On the following Servite drive, Uiagalelei showed why he is being recruited as both a defensive end and tight end, pulling down Fifita with one arm for his first sack of the night.

After three-star junior linebacker Jalen Woods intercepted Fifita, Servite's defense forced a three-and-out and got the Friars the ball back inside Bosco territory. Fifita led them on a 35-yard drive capped with a three-yard touchdown run to cut the deficit to 31-28 with 5:18 left.

St. John Bosco responded with a 15-yard touchdown run by Michael Hayes with 1:54 left to take a commanding 38-28 lead.

The Braves improve to 3-0 with the win while the loss drops the Friars to 2-1.

Up next for St. John Bosco is JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano) on April 3. Servite will look to bounce back against state No. 1 Mater Dei (Santa Ana).
