There are other sports in HS. OLu just won state over SM in Ice Hockey. Tonight in CIF basketball playoffs MD takes on Chino Hills and OLu vs. Centennial in the second round. MD is unbelievably good I am not sure how they lost any games this season.

Agreed! And don't forget the soccer playoffs, they are very exciting. This weekend, Wrestling has the Masters qualifier for State the following weekend in Bakersfield. Lots of OC wrestlers setting themselves apart.

Nothing moves the needle like football.

But I did see that Servite basketball lost at home to Esperanza.

Track is Back!!

Track starts this weekend also and two of the best nationally ranked disc and shot put athletes already will clash. Not to mention some good talent in sprints. Saturday 10am at SM.

(Feb. 24, 2015) — A heavyweight showdown in the ring takes place this Saturday at Santa Margarita High School as the Eagle Invite plays host to a nine-school battle that features an exciting lineup in the throwing events!
Headlined by the #2 returnee in the nation in the shot put (St. John Bosco's Matt Katnik, 65 feet, 4 inches) and the #3 returnee nationally in the discus throw (Mater Dei's Malik McMorris, 192-11), the Eagle Invite again features a collection of top-notch programs kicking off their outdoor season as a stepping stone to potential CIF team titles come May. (School entries listed below, followed by heat sheets).
Katnik (also 168-10 in the discus) and McMorris (60-09.50 in the shot put) are scheduled to compete in both throwing events and will be joined in the ring by two of America's top sophomore-class talents in JSerra's Luke Wattenburg (173-1/DT) and Esperanza's Bronson Osborn (60-03.50/SP, 173-00/DT). Toss in Notre Dame's "Legion of Boom" throwers in Aaron Haigler (59-01.00/SP), Austin Swanson (55-03.50), Kylan Wilborn (53-11.50), Antoine Williams (163-01) and Kyle Swanson (53-09.50) and this season-opening meet clearly features plenty of muscle!
The dashes will be deprived of one big name as footballer Sean McGrew (10.67/100 meters) of St. John Bosco reportedly will skip the meet to attend to an SAT prep class. Regardless, there may be plenty of speed to burn as Notre Dame junior Trevor Reid (10.80/22.19) and teammates Leo Lambert (49.42/400) and Oliver Sloan (49.77/400) will open the new campaign by competing in the short sprints while Austin Lietz tackles the hurdles. Keep an eye also on age-group frosh talent Re-al Mitchell of St. John Bosco, who ripped a hand-timed 10.7 for 100 meters as an eighth grader.
In the girls meet, host Santa Margarita features Stanford-signed senior Kaitlyn Merritt, whose personal best of 13-09.00 in the pole vault leads the state's returnees entering 2015. Other elite vaulters featured include Mater Dei's McKenna Caskey (12-09.00) and Santa Margarita's Kate Thomas (11-09.00).
The throws set on the girls side is not as deep as the boys, but Notre Dame's Nia Britt (43-07.25) is a big-time talent in the shot put while Newport Harbor's Rachelle A La Torre leads the discus field.
On the track, look for Esperanza distance runners Katherine Gallaher and Shannon MacKellar, both cross country standouts, to battle Newport Harbor's Erin Barth and Emily Bacon in the multi-lap events while Mater Dei's Sarah Perez and Haley Hopkins head up the entries in the dashes. Also, keep an eye out for Santa Margarita frosh Nikki Merritt, Kaitlyn's younger sister, to represent well in the short hurdles.
While the meet has not charged an entry fee in the past, this year's competition will serve as a fundraiser for the Wounder Warrior Project; a nominal team entry fee from each school will be donated to the WWP. Attendees to the meet can also make a donation on site.

A hand-timed 10.7 converts to a 10.94 FAT, and that's not inconceivable. I've seen Mitchell on the football field, and he's pretty darned quick.

JSerra wasn't impressed with his quickness...I guess if he is running track the proof will be in the pudding here shortly...Bosco seems to be over-hyping all things Bosco here recently...

Kingspeed isn't a bosco guy, he is a track guy. I doubt he is overstating anything.

Bosco Rugby just won the Southern Cal. Youth Rugby Championship this past Saturday as well. That's not overhype, just fact!

Congrats Bosco...Rugby is an excellent sport & great game to watch! One of my bucket list items is to see the All Blacks play in NZ.

SS Masters has ended for Wrestling...now onto State next weekend. Bosco's awesome 3 did as expected & cleaned up. I believe the real story there is Danny Salas...not known as one of the 'studs' but that young man had a heck of tournament for Bosco. Congrats to Danny. Bosco has four going to State. Mater Dei's two (Perez & Smith) will also be making the trip to Bakersfield. Servite has five going (Cronin, Blakley, Livermore, Vasquez & Leuta). I believe for both MD & Servite these were the best overall finishes for each school. Marina has at least a couple of guys going (Morgan & Coppa [Coppa is one of my favorites]). Fountain Valley & Calvary Chapel also will represent. There were actually great wrestlers from all over OC...don't forget Abe Ochoa from Yorba Linda. That young man is really on fire. Congratulations to all the wrestlers heading up. SS Masters is a brutal tournament with great wrestling.

Again...overhyped by who?

Btw, if you look at the times he was the only kid on that board that was not an 11th or 12th grader. Also, he was 2nd in the 200 as a ninth grader in his first meet.

I'm sure if you look at sean mcgrews first 100 time as a freshman it was not blazing, and yet he ran a 10.67 as a sophomore.

Also, if there was any hype about the kid ( is there really) it is not that he is a track guy, it's that he is a QB running that fast.

Some of you take this stuff way too seriously

TrinityLFB, you can't have it both ways bro. You and your Bosco peeps come on here blowing your kids up and then when its not true you go the "you guys take this way too serious" line? Whatever. Someone on here is blowing this kid up at a 10.7 and he runs 11.4. Do you understand the difference .7 is in the 100M? Just be real because if not this board will call you out. And it did...
