California high school football: Behind sophomore Matayo Uiagalelei, St. John Bosco beats Servite 38-28
In one of the biggest high school football games of the spring season in California, 2019 MaxPreps national champion St. John Bosco (Bellflower) beat Servite (Anaheim) 38-28 Friday night. The first half was a defensive battle between the Trinity League rivals with Servite carrying a 7-3 lead into halftime.

Houston Thomas scored the only touchdown on a three-yard run with 10:04 left in the second quarter.

Both offenses got on track in the second half as Katin Houser led the Braves on a six-play, 62-yard drive to begin the third quarter capped by a 26-yard touchdown pass to four-star sophomore tight end Matayo Uiagalelei.

Bosco's defense forced a three-and-out on the Friars' opening possession of the third quarter and took momentum of the game on the following drive that began at its own one-yard line. Sophomore Pierce Clarkson came in under center for the next drive as head coach Jason Negro continued to alternate quarterbacks on each possession. The result was a 99-yard drive culminated with a three-yard touchdown pass to Chedon James.

After only completing one pass in the first half, Servite's junior quarterback Noah Fifita started to find his rhythm and connected with five-star wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan four separate times on the ensuing drive after he was held without a catch in the first half.

Fifita scampered in from 11 yards out with 3:03 left in the third quarter to cut the Bosco lead to 17-14.

The Braves answered two plays later as three-star junior running back Jabari Bates took it 75 yards to the house to increase the lead to 24-14. He finished the night with 14 carries for 170 yards.

Fifita connected with McMillan on a 64-yard pass to get inside the red zone, then found the five-star receiver a couple of plays later for a three-yard score with 1:33 left in the third quarter to cut the lead to 24-21.

The biggest play of the game came on the following drive for St. John Bosco as it faced a fourth-and-eight on Servite's 12-yard line. Clarkson threw a perfect ball to the 6-foot-6, 265-pound Uiagalelei, who went up and snagged it for his second score of the night to take a 31-21 lead with 9:57 left.

On the following Servite drive, Uiagalelei showed why he is being recruited as both a defensive end and tight end, pulling down Fifita with one arm for his first sack of the night.

After three-star junior linebacker Jalen Woods intercepted Fifita, Servite's defense forced a three-and-out and got the Friars the ball back inside Bosco territory. Fifita led them on a 35-yard drive capped with a three-yard touchdown run to cut the deficit to 31-28 with 5:18 left.

St. John Bosco responded with a 15-yard touchdown run by Michael Hayes with 1:54 left to take a commanding 38-28 lead.

The Braves improve to 3-0 with the win while the loss drops the Friars to 2-1.

Up next for St. John Bosco is JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano) on April 3. Servite will look to bounce back against state No. 1 Mater Dei (Santa Ana).

High school girls basketball rankings: Bearden, Minnetonka earn spots in HIGHSCORE Top 25 as postseason looms for much of the country - HIGHSCORE
High school girls basketball rankings: Bearden, Minnetonka earn spots in MaxPreps Top 25 as postseason looms for much of the country
Even in the best of times, high school basketball is wildly unpredictable. Teenage problems, high school drama and the ups and downs of adolescent life create oceans of uncertainty when it comes to figuring out how well a team might play on a given night.

This year, COVID-19 has kicked that baked-in unpredictability to new heights, especially when it comes to the MaxPreps Top 25. For example, No. 1 Lake Highland Prep (Orlando, Fla.) and No. 2 Westlake (Atlanta) were scheduled to play a game — but it was canceled. And with it was the on-the-court decider for the top spot. This week, No. 8 Norman (Okla.) was supposed to play Classen SAS (Oklahoma City), which had knocked off No. 13 DeSoto (Texas) earlier this season — but that game has been called off.

And now, as we move into postseason in many states (some of which will allow fans for the games), we can only expect more of the same. Some seasons will likely end with a COVID cancellation in the playoffs, maybe even a forfeit. Others may find themselves without key players or head coaches down the stretch thanks to contact tracing or test results.

The bottom line? What is usually a crazy sport will be crazier than ever in 2021, and anyone who has any confidence in any predictions just isn't paying attention. And though rankings are fun and state titles are impressive achievements, the most important result this year is that everyone involved with all these teams makes it through the season in good health.

This year, that's a championship worth playing for.

NOTE: We encourage all girls basketball teams to update schedules and results on MaxPreps – especially those in the mix for MaxPreps Top 25 consideration. For assistance or questions, please reach out to [email protected]

MaxPreps Top 25 Girls Basketball Rankings

1. Lake Highland Prep (Orlando, Fla.)
Record: 14-0 | Last week: 1
The Highlanders start the 4A Region 2 playoffs Thursday and 19-4 Wesley Chapel is the likely second-round opponent. Ribault and American Heritage, which will be the biggest tests, are a ways down the road.

2. Westlake (Atlanta)
Record: 15-0 | Last week: 2
Westlake has some time off to prepare for the AAAAAA playoffs as the first game isn't until Feb. 23 at the earliest. At some point, though, expect a matchup with unbeaten Buford.

3. Mount Notre Dame (Cincinnati)
Record: 20-0 | Last week: 3
The Cougars finished the regular season with a convincing 67-39 win over a solid Notre Dame Academy team and move on to the Division 1 Princeton 2 playoffs Saturday against 32nd seed Middletown.

4. Hopkins (Minnetonka, Minn.)
Record: 6-0 | Last week: 4
The Royals should have smooth sailing until Feb. 18, when the bus will load up for a crosstown game at rival and new No. 25 Minnetonka — which came within one point of knocking off the nation's No. 4 team the first time around.

5. Edison Academy (Detroit)
Record: 0-0 | Last week: 5
We're pretty sure the Pioneers will finally begin their season Feb. 10 against Cornerstone Health & Tech but Michigan's rollout of winter sports hasn't been all that smooth. Maybe this time.

6. Incarnate Word Academy (St. Louis)
Record: 16-0 | Last week: 6
The toughest regular season game remaining for the Red Knights appears to be Burroughs on Feb. 24, but even then, the chances of an upset are remote. Postseason, however, will present more of a challenge.

7. Cypress Creek (Houston)
Record: 26-0 | Last week: 7
The Cougars have rampaged through the Houston area so far. That pattern of domination is likely to continue through the first two games in the 6A Region 3 playoffs. But No. 13 DeSoto or perennial power Duncanville will likely show up eventually, and that will be a different story.

8. Norman (Okla.)
Record: 12-0 | Last week: 8
There was a lot of anticipation surrounding Thursday's game vs. Classen SAS but unfortunately it was canceled, meaning the biggest challenge left before postseason will be a Feb. 19 trip to Edmond Memorial.

9. St. John-Vianney (Holmdel, N.J.)
Record: 3-0 | Last week: 9
It took a long time for New Jersey to get going, but it didn't take long for a big game to show up on the schedule: The Lancers against unbeaten Saddle River Day on Saturday. Luckily for the No. 9 team, it's in the friendly confines.

10. Paul VI (Chantilly, Va.)
Record: 9-0 | Last week: 12
Do the Panthers really deserve a top 10 ranking? If Virginia's best can beat talent-laden Bishop McNamara at home Saturday, there will be no doubt.

11. Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.)
Record: 19-1 | Last week: 12
The Eagles' season is complete unless an invite to the GEICO Nationals is forthcoming — and that assumes that the event is even played this year.

12. North Central (Indianapolis)
Record: 24-2 | Last week: 14
The 4A playoffs begin Saturday and the Panthers could potentially play two games in one day. The second could be against 20-4 Roncalli. Down the road, Bedford North Lawrence, which has a win over North Central, could make an appearance.

13. DeSoto (Texas)
Record: 20-2 | Last week: 13
To avoid a repeat of fights that have marred a couple of Eagle games, the DeSoto administration chose to forfeit the game against Cedar Hill last week.

14. Newark (Ohio)
Record: 19-1 | Last week: 16
The Wildcats wind up the regular season Friday, and will begin the Division 1 Central 4 playoffs Feb. 16 versus Mifflin. There are a lot of games in the Ohio postseason, and a lot of good teams, so there's no guarantee that Newark and No. 3 Mount Notre Dame will meet but it would be fun.

15. Fremont (Plain City, Utah)
Record: 18-0 | Last week: 15
The Silverwolves host 15-2 Syracuse on Friday in what should be the last test before the Utah 6A playoffs begin — but even then, Fremont is the heavy favorite to run the table.

16. Archbishop Wood (Warminster, Pa.)
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 18
The Vikings got a late start but are making up for lost time. There are three games in the next seven days, culminating with a Tuesday matchup against longtime rival and perennial power Cardinal O'Hara.

17. Grandview (Aurora, Colo.)
Record: 4-0 | Last week: 17
The Wolves will get their first test Friday traveling to unbeaten Arapahoe. The toughest tests, though, likely won't come until postseason.

18. Valley Vista (Surprise, Ariz.)
Record: 3-0 | Last week: 20
The Monsoon travel to 6-1 Hamilton on Friday, and though that spacious gym won't be unfamiliar, it's still a tough place to play.

19. Rutgers Prep (Somerset, N.J.)
Record: 3-0 | Last week: 19
Setting up games has been a challenge for a lot of teams this year, and the Argonauts are no exception — which is why the schedule is more likely to resemble a walk in the park than a walk on the wild side.

20. Anderson County (Lawrenceburg, Ky.)
Record: 13-0 | Last week: 22
The Bearcats slipped past Bethlehem 57-56 last week to stay in the MaxPreps Top 25 — but with unbeaten Elizabethtown and talented Sacred Heart back-to-back next week, the ranking is definitely in peril.

21. Hazel Green (Ala.)
Record: 29-1 | Last week: 21
The Trojans are ready to start the 6A playoffs, and won't face 7A Hoover again, as the schools are in different divisions. And Hazel Green has already beaten the second- and third-ranked 6A teams handily, so it could be a relatively easy ride the rest of the way.

22. Ponchatoula (La.)
Record: 26-0 | Last week: 23
The Bayou State's best beat Mt. Carmel, the second-ranked 5A team, by 21 on Monday. The Green Wave have two games remaining in the regular season before the playoffs begin Feb. 18.

23. Upperman (Baxter, Tenn.)
Record: 25-0 | Last week: 25
The regular season is over, and the Division II playoffs won't start until Feb. 20, so the Bees will have plenty of time to get busy on the practice floor.

24. Bearden (Knoxville, Tenn.)
Record: 19-1 | Last week: NR
The Bulldogs jump into the rankings thanks to a 47-39 win over previous No. 10 Ensworth. This offsets an early season loss to Alcoa, which has won 13 of its last 16 games. A trip to 24-2 Grainger is on the docket Saturday.

25. Minnetonka (Minn.)
Record: 7-1 | Last week: NR
It's rare that a team gets into the MaxPreps Top 25 thanks to a loss, but the Skippers' ability to come within one point of No. 4 Hopkins got them a bid. That said, unbeaten Chaska is Friday's opponent, so the celebration could be short.

Dropped out: No. 10 Ensworth (Tenn.), No. 24 Johnston (Iowa)
High school basketball: With COVID-19 guidelines limiting indoor activity, games in Washington's Pierce County being played in livestock arena - HIGHSCORE
High school basketball: With COVID-19 guidelines limiting indoor activity, games in Washington's Pierce County being played in livestock arena
With local guidelines restricting indoor activity amid the pandemic, athletic directors, coaches and local businesses got creative to save the high school basketball season in Washington's Pierce County.

Games finally got underway Wednesday on the grounds of the Washington State Fair in Puyallup in a venue typically reserved for equestrian activities, livestock shows, auctions and swap meets.

The arena has a roof but opens on both ends, allowing the basketball games to be played and skirting the limit on indoor gatherings. Puyallup-based Looker Asphalt paved the arena floor in recent days in order to make it possible to lay down courts.
Curtis (University Place) athletic director Suzanne Vick told KJR 950 on Wednesday that nearly 400 games are scheduled to be played on three courts featuring boys and girls teams from the South Puget Sound League and Pierce County League.

Spectators aren't permitted this week but Vick said she hopes two guests per uniformed player will be allowed in the near future.

Thankfully, the area's unpredictable spring weather is doing its part to cooperate. Temperatures are expected to remain in the 70s through the weekend.

High school basketball rankings: Reading enters this week's HIGHSCORE Top 25 after winning Pennsylvania 6A title - HIGHSCORE
High school basketball rankings: Reading enters this week's MaxPreps Top 25 after winning Pennsylvania 6A title
A season-defining week of high school basketball awaits as GEICO Nationals takes center stage this week. The 10-team, national field begins Wednesday featuring the top four teams in the MaxPreps Top 25 along with No. 7 Milton, No. 10 Wasatch Academy, No. 12 Prolific Prep, No. 15 Pace Academy and a pair of unranked event mainstays.

Top-ranked Montverde Academy has won an event-best four GEICO Nationals titles and are slight favorites over three teams the Eagles have already knocked off this season — No. 2 AZ Compass Prep (Chandler, Ariz.), No. 3 Sunrise Christian (Bel Aire, Kan.) and No. 4 IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.). Sunrise Christian is the only team to hand the Eagles a loss this season, but trails the season series 2-1.

The four-day national championship event culminates April 3 at Suncoast Arena on the campus of Florida SouthWestern State College in Fort Myers, Fla. All games will be shown on the ESPN family of networks.

Looking at last week's results, No. 25 Reading (Pa.) stunned previous No. 9 Archbishop Wood (Warminster, Pa.) 58-57 in a gritty 6A state championship game. The Red Knights battled back from an early 13-2 deficit to capture their first state title since 2017.

No. 9 Minnehaha Academy (Minneapolis) survived a scare over the weekend, erasing a 15-point, first-half deficit to beat Totino-Grace 73-60 in the Class 3A Section 4 title game. The Red Hawks take on Byron in Wednesday's state quarterfinals.

High school baseball: 109-0 blowout tops list of highest scoring games - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: 109-0 blowout tops list of highest scoring games
The highest scoring baseball game in high school history was played April 25, 1928 when Atlantic (Iowa) defeated nearby Griswold (Iowa), 109-0, but that's only part of the story. The rest of the story involves a girl, money and bad blood that produced an avalanche of national records and possibly the most lopsided score in all of sports history.

The story begins on March 29, 1928, in Griswold, a small town in eastern Iowa, when baseball coach Phil Morrison decided to go with Alice Buckman as his starting right fielder. The selection of Buckman, "a 15-year old red-headed girl," over nine other boys caused quite a stir across the entire country as the Associated Press carried the story and it appeared in newspapers from the Los Angeles Times to the New York Daily News and all points in between.

Griswold games then became a madhouse with fans coming from far and wide to watch Buckman play. She didn't disappoint, either, getting several hits and fielding her position flawlessly aside from one dropped, wind-blown popup.

Griswold games became a main attraction. Movie crews filmed Buckman's every move. Newspaper articles on Griswold games focused only on Buckman's exploits. Opinion columns across the country praised Buckman's accomplishment. The gate at the first Griswold baseball home game was $75 — that's nearly $1,200 in earnings today. She was asked to throw out the first pitch at a minor league ballgame and she was given a trophy for her "Triumph" at the Elliott Track Relays. She was even given a full-page feature in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

At Atlantic, coach P.G. Russell sought to get a game with Griswold on his home field. In an agreement with Morrison, the two teams would play in Atlantic on April 25 and split the gate 50-50 (one report says the agreement was made the previous fall). Russell anticipated a big crowd and even set up an extra train to run from Griswold to Atlantic to handle the overflow crowd.

Atlantic, it should be noted, was an outstanding team. Undefeated to start the season, Atlantic featured a pitcher, Don King, who had earned all-state honors in the winter while leading Atlantic to a third-place finish in the state basketball tournament. King would play heavily in the matchup against Griswold.

During the week prior to the game, Russell accused Morrison of reneging on their contract, suggesting that Morrison wanted a 60-40 split for Griswold instead of the agreed upon 50-50 cut. Morrison denied the switch, and that's when things began to go downhill. Cries of "commercialization" appeared in newspapers from as far as New Jersey with Morrison denying he was trying to make money off his now nationally famous right fielder.

Morrison then announced the day before the game that Buckman would be unable to play due to an injured finger sustained against Cumberland the game before. Suggesting that he wanted his team to focus on a game the following day against Adair, Morrison pulled his starters, including Buckman, and sent his freshman squad to take on Atlantic.

The results were not pretty. While Atlantic scored only four runs in the first inning, it put 30 across in the second. It scored 12 runs in the third, six runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings, 27 in the seventh and 18 in the eighth.

According to Steve Baier, a Cass County Supervisor who has done research on the game, the game was played at Sunnyside Park, which did not have a fence. A rope was utilized to hold back the fans, who formed the outer boundary of the field.

"Griswold's usual left fielder, Johnny Gustin, threw every pitch," said Baier in an e-mail to MaxPreps. "By the eighth inning, Griswold had only seven players on the field. The (nine-inning) game ended in the eighth due to darkness."

The game was an offensive bonanza for Atlantic. Besides bashing out 92 base hits, Atlantic had 16 home runs, five by Ronald Rapp, 26 doubles and seven triples. Atlantic also blazed on the base paths, swiping 113 bases. Griswold, meanwhile, committed 22 errors.

King was the feature player of the game, however. Besides throwing a no-hitter and striking out 16 (other reports say 13), he also led the Atlantic offensive with 15 hits, two home runs, two doubles and 19 stolen bases.

Obviously the game provided a plethora of national records, but only a handful of them are recognized by the National Federation of High Schools Record Book and the Iowa High Schools Athletic Association record book produced by Bud Legg. While most of the team records are listed, none of the individual marks have found their way into the record books.

Chris Boone of the National Federation reported in an e-mail to MaxPreps that the absence of individual records is likely due to the absence of any boxscores to prove the record-breaking marks.

MaxPreps has included two box scores for the game with this story (pictured below). One is from April 27 in the Des Moines Register and includes all of the stolen base and extra base hit totals, but does not including run totals. An accompanying box score from the April 26 Atlantic News Telegraph shows the run totals, but does not include extra base hits.

Some of the statistics were never reported. Game reports do not list any of the players, other than King, who hit doubles. RBI totals are also not available along with any reports of players who might have scored multiple runs or had multiple hits in an inning.

The two teams met later in the season and the score proved to be much closer. With Griswold's starters, including Buckman, on the field, Atlantic posted a 2-1 win.

Most Runs in an Inning: Atlantic 30 (ranks 9th best all-time according to NFHS)

There are multiple individual records and listmakers from Atlantic that should be included in the record book. Here are the individual record holders according to the NFHS record book and the totals of the players from Atlantic:
