  • What are the chances of seeing some coverage for Lacrosse?

    DLS meets SRV this Friday at DLS at 7:00pm probably for the EBAL title. Two best teams in Nor Cal . Monday nite SRV beat Carona Del Mar breaking The Sea Kings 36 game winning streak by a score of 10-9. There will be avoid crowd for the game DLS/ SRV game Friday. Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the West. Physical high scoring. Fast. Great spectator sport. Some of the best will be played Friday nite. Lacrosse sadly is ignored in the sport pages. It would be so great to have someone take alook!

  • Prep Fan

    Congratulations on Cal High finally knocking off previously nationally top ranked AV to take over sole possession of first place in the EBAL. They’ve had some great games over the past couple of years, but Lindsey Chalmers was very impressive in outduelling Johanna Grauer and shutting out the hard hitting Dons. Go Grizz!

  • Here’s Gianni

    Yes, congratulations to Cal High! Why does Alhambra always get rated so high, their league is one of the worst and when they did play a good team they did lose!

  • Here’s Gianni

    By the way, why are we not rated (SRV)? We have a better record then some of the teams that are!

    @1: The supposition for coverage is that BANG has fewer and fewer (paid) staff as of late so they are stretched. Subscribe now or see the coverage etc. wilt away even with the dedicated journalists there. Coverage for the big three (FB, Hoops, Baseball) gets a lot of Ibabuzz hits, so that will last. Some timely and good stuff in soccer/vball as well. LAX? East Coast thing, although some good recruits heading to next level recently.
