    I assume Balboa’s matchup with South City means the Bucs won yesterday, right?

  2. E. K. says:

    I believe Burton plays Lompoc. Hillsdale plays Santa Teresa today, and ST beat Lompoc yesterday.

  3. Ari Gold says:

    Chronicle’s Mitch Stephens picked Demetrius Williams (Lincoln) as SF player of the year for football. Will Jeremy Balan concur or will he show the masses the true SI lover he is?

    • Roll Cats says:

      Stephens also chose Jared Goff as the Bay Area player of the year, following in the mold of Harold Abend who provides around the clock updates about every miniscule part of Goff’s life. Jeremy is a great journalist and will choose a different player because he follows SF more closely.

      No disrespect to Williams or the AAA, but Elijah Dale rushed for more yards (albeit more games) against far more difficult competition. I would much rather see the SF award go to Brett Rasso because of his all-around greatness, and Rasso will contend for the athlete of the year with Stinn. That being said, I still believe Noah Bull deserves the award for being the heart and soul of a championship defense. Mulligan and Rasso were great all-around, but Bull’s talent exceeded everyone else in the city this year.

      Either way, it’s a win-win when Sanfranpreps releases the list because no one provides better coverage of San Francisco sports and so many kids get to see their names on a special list. Can’t wait for the awards to come out!

    • JJ says:

      I don’t know, man. He wrote a 4 or 5-part series of articles on the SH basketball team last year. Maybe he’s an Irish lover?

      • Ari Gold says:

        No sooner after he had SHC week, did he get back on the SI choo-choo train and be the conductor of SI baseball caboose then took a summer break and got the train going again on SI football.

        It would be an upset pick if he goes with Porter, Williams, or Rasso for football player of the year. But Balan usually goes with chalk. So its either going to be Stinn, Dale, Waters or Bull. Of course all those SI players are deserving.

        • jbalan says:

          SHC boys basketball in the state championship, SI football in the NorCal D-I game and CCS Open Division champions, SI baseball winning a CCS title and in the WCAL championship game, University boys basketball when they were in the mix in NorCal tournament two and three years ago… Yeah, I wonder why we covered those teams a lot…

          • Ari Gold says:

            Theres no secret Jeremy’s coverage. Not disputing that you shouldnt cover WINNING teams. Im just jokingly busting your chops for being an SI lover.

            Break the mold Balan. Cover Riordan wrestling who has a state champion on their team. Just something else thats not red white and blue. SI isnt the only school that wins.

            • jbalan says:

              Whenever Riordan wrestling sends something in, we put it up. Wrestling and soccer are not the focus of our coverage in the winter, basketball is. I’m not saying wrestling won’t ever be covered, but basketball takes priority in the winter.

            • SF Wrestling says:

              Riordan doesn’t have any HS state champions on their team (can’t speak to what one or both of them may have done in Greco or freestyle). They do have two guys certainly capable of medaling this year…and maybe even winning it all.

              I don’t expect to see much sanfranpreps coverage about one the oldest, truest, and certainly the hardest sport in HS. The media mostly covers entertainment sports (i.e. sports in involving a ball). However, I believe Jeremy will post submitted coverage.

      • jbalan says:

        Ari pipes up whenever SI even gets mentioned, but doesn’t have any problems when SHC players won POYs in football and basketball last year.

  4. GGC says:

    What about more small school coverage?

    The only time the smaller schools get airtime is when the big public schools don’t have games going on that day.

  5. Don L. says:

    Wow is the Girls Sand Dune that unbalanced? Pinewood blows Galileo away and then Lowell returns the favor? Is this Lowell’s first time in the Sand Dune finals? They’ve had opportunities in the past but they’ve lost some games I thought they could have won.

    As for Galileo, they make up for their big loss by blowing away their consolation opponent. I would have liked to see Galileo vs Lowell as those appear to be two of the top teams in the AAA girls league.

  6. GCJ 01 says:

    I know Burton’s boys team lost today. I just don’t know who they lost to. They are playing Yerba Buena (San Jose) at 3:00. Yerba Buena also lost yesterday against Hillsdale (which is how I know Burton lost).

    • E. K. says:

      I believe it’s Lompoc, who lost to Santa Teresa in the first game. Hillsdale played Santa Teresa, so it would make sense that Burton played Lompoc.

      YB lost to Sobrato on Friday, 75-66. On Thursday, they lost to Damonte Ranch 84-48.
