HB - Baseball
Edison - Football
FV - Used to be band
OV - Basketball?
West. / Marina - Umm?
That list is essentially correct, but that only applies to single sport athletes in HBUHSD. But leaves out the multi sport athletes, particularly those who play football. Those kids that play another sport and play football are welcomed with open arms. Edison is one of the smaller schools in the district, but is always at the top of the Sunset League in all sports because of one reason, Edison programs share their athletes. They stagger, intentionally coordinated, the times of their summer camps to accommodate the multi sport kids (FB at 8, Basketball/soccer at 10, baseball/volleyball/lax at 1). It’s actively encouraged by football program for players to play another sport- track, wrestling, basketball, lax
Hence why you see so many kids from Edison at all-CIF/league kids on multiple lists. Kids like Attencio (FB/BB) and Moradian (FB/Wrestling) thrive and succeed because of the environment of the entire athletic department’s coordination. Yes other schools have top tier volleyball and baseball program, but are they at the top of league standings in all sports? That is reason why Edison football and it’s other programs will always be competitive in the Sunset League.
The last three sport athlete I can recall at Edison played football, basketball, and volleyball and commuted from the CDM area, with his dad, leaving all his junior high friends behind.
