Re: San Clemente is out of the playoffs

Other than Mission Viejo doesn't La Habra have the most transfer students? It seems that these
past few years they have had multiple transfers.

Re: D1 Projections

After going up 28-0 in the first quarter I think the team lost their focus. It'll be different
next week.

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

This year the Div I playoffs will be just like the basketball Div I playoffs---the Top seeded team
is home--NO COIN flips. Therefore MD and Bosco if they win their games will be the home team up until the Championship game.

Re: STREAK IS OVER!!!!!!

That play with Barkley to Abbott was a highlite play----one of his best---I still enjoy viewing
it on a replay of the game. One of many I view over and over.

John Huarte has a grandson attending Mater Dei. I believe he is either a sophomore or a junior in
class standing.

Re: Smchs basketball coach Jeff reinert resigns

McKnight was the JV coach at Ocean View when he was hired at MD----It's great if you can find a previous head coach but there are many JV coaches that have the talent and expertise to become a successful head coach. I don't think a JC coach would give up his job at a JC----the best and least stressf...

Re: Servite's Larry Toner finally retires...

Actually the rent for the stadium is very reasonable---MD would lose money having their own stadium-- the upkeep on a stadium that would be in use for 1/2 their games would cost considerably more than what they pay for rental. The Bowl being only 5 minutes away with great parking available and just ...

Re: Smchs basketball coach Jeff reinert resigns

Well "dont be that guy"---One of those players does have the weight of Championship ring--he was a starter as a freshmen when they won the Open Championship a year ago. So I am sure he has a fun ride and the other will probably have one before he graduates. Also to some people the division you win t...

Reinert NEVER beat McKnight and MD---and MD beat them with no Seniors playing and with all lower class men-- against his THREE DIV I scholarship SENIORS ----THAT w as the LAST STRAW.

Re: Servite's Larry Toner finally retires...

Very few Santa Ana residents can afford the tuition at MD. The same with Servite---how many of their students are from Anaheim?? Although MD does have a program for students from the Catholic Elementary Schools in Santa Ana--Our Lady, Immaculate Heart, St. Anne, and St. Joseph. Also the other Large ...

Re: Smchs basketball coach Jeff reinert resigns

Reinert never beat MD....the transfer of the two SM players was I feel the nail in the coffin. Great kids and outstanding supportive families. McKnight and his staff prepared his kids better and the loss this year to MD was not taken lightly by the SM administration. And Davidson has two younger bro...

Re: Servite's Larry Toner finally retires...

I don't think that you can classify Holy Family as one of the main feeder schools to Servite as many of their graduates attended and attend Mater Dei. The main feeder schools to Servite have been from the North Orange County---the Fullerton/Anaheim area and beyond. Whether that is still the case wit...

Re: Servite's Larry Toner finally retires...

I went to public school and received "swats' from some of my male teachers. Way back they did it in the public schools---it wasn't just the private schools. Toner for a time was studying to be a priest in the Norbertine Order. At the time they were mostly the priests who escaped Hungary and Communis...
