Madison Bumgarner offers sense of pride for South Caldwell High School - HIGHSCORE
Madison Bumgarner offers sense of pride for South Caldwell High School

South Caldwell (Hudson, N.C.) baseball coach and athletic director Jeff Parham melted into his cozy maroon leather chair Sunday and soaked it all in.

It was just as he does every time his prized pupil Madison Bumgarner pitches.

his senior year at South Caldwell in 2007.
"I don't move from that chair," Parham said. "If I do, I pause the TV. I will scream and yell with excitement. I'm just so proud of him."

Parham was extra prideful — and loud — on Sunday.

Bumgarner, the San Francisco Giants rising superstar southpaw, threw the first individual shutout in World Series history since 2003 — a four-hit, eight-strikeout, no-walk gem in a 5-0 win over the Royals.

He became the first pitcher in World Series history to ever throw a shutout with eight or more strikeouts and no walks.

Gulp.

"Crazy," was Parham's quick one-word description.

Crazier considering what a late-season roll the 2007 South Caldwell graduate has been on. His 1.13 ERA through six postseason starts this season is fifth best in major league history. He has a 4-1 record in those starts with a 0.67 WHIP in 47.2 innings.

Craziest, add scoreless starts in 2010 and 2012 World Series starts, his 0.29 ERA over 31 career innings is the best of all-time of those who have pitched 30 or more innings.

Better than Bob Gibson. Better than Sandy Koufax. Better than Tom Seaver, Catfish Hunter and Curt Schilling.

This lumbering country boy from rural Granite Falls, N.C. (approximately 5,000 population), an hour West of Charlotte, has been better than all of them.

Parham, who graduated from South Caldwell in 1983 and has coached there 15 seasons, said Bumgarner was always a fearless big-game pitcher.

run to win the state 4A title.
The 6-foot-5 left-hander, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft (by the Giants), led South Caldwell to 2006 and 2007 4A State Championship title series, winning in 2007. Fittingly, Bumgarner ended his final prep game with a walk-off two-run title-clinching home run.

"I tell people all the time that Madison wants the ball — or the bat — in a big game situation," Parham said. "The bigger the stage the better. He never shied away from it. He loved it. He just wants to win. That's inside of him. That's just part of his DNA."

But on baseball's biggest stage, certainly the Royals have guys who share similar DNA. Just like the Tigers had competitive sorts in 2012 and the Rangers did in 2010.

That's why Parham said he welled up, watching the lad they nicknamed "The Carolina Peach" for going 23-4 with a near 1.00 ERA and 263 strikeouts in 170 innings his final two seasons for the Spartans.

"I'm sitting there in my favorite chair getting choked up thinking about this accomplished, humble 25-year-old young man and how far he has come and how hard he worked and where he came from, our little South Caldwell High School community," Parham said. "It just brought back so many fond memories."

Story Time

It didn't take a crowbar — barely a query — to get Parham to rattle off some of his favorites.

Like the first time Parham saw Bumgarner compete:

"It was a sixth-grade summer baseball camp," he said. "At 12, he was a lot taller than all the kids so he stood out for that reason. He was lanky too. More than that, it was the way he threw. Catchers at the camp had a tough time catching him. He was very special then. He could swing the bat pretty well too."

Or when Bumgarner was a freshman at South Caldwell and the lights went out in a showdown against the state's No. 1 team Alexander Central (Taylorsville, N.C.), which was 23-0 at the time:

"We're up 1-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh and the lights go out," Parham said. "Madison was pitching great but it's going to take at least 30 minutes for the lights to come back on. I was considering taking him out but he kept saying, ‘Coach, I'll be fine. I want to finish. Trust me coach. Trust me.'

"He went out and struck out the side. Pretty impressive stuff for a 14-year-old."

Or Christmas Day during his junior season:

"I get a phone call a little after lunch and it's Madison. He was the only kid to call me on Christmas and I thought it was awfully nice. But then he tells me he wants to lift — that day. What am I going to say? I mean, the kid wanted to get bigger and stronger. I knew right then he had the dedication to make it all the way. He was already throwing harder than anyone. But soon he would be a man among boys."

Or the time as a senior when in an elimination playoff series with Alexander Central, Bumgarner had pitched a shutout in the first game on a Tuesday night, but in a high-scoring Friday game Parham had chewed up most of his pitchers. The bases were loaded and the Spartans were holding a one-run lead:

"All of a sudden, I hear the mitt popping in the bullpen and it's Madison throwing. I go down to ask what's going on and he says, ‘Coach, I can get the last out. I feel good. Coach I can do it.'

"I think about it a few seconds, I go out to the mound and bring Madison in. Three pitches and it was done."

Recalling his roots

Parham said he would be surprised if Bumgarner doesn't volunteer his services late if the Giants are forced to a Game 7. If the Giants win the series, he's almost assured to garner MVP honors, as he did in the NLCS against the Cardinals.

Before the World Series, the South Caldwell student body and staff, a couple hundred strong, clad in black and orange and sporting signs and cut-out Bumgarner faces, gathered in the school's gym. It was part of the school's "MadBum Day."

They produced a short "good luck" video and Parham and his wife Mandi, who also works at the school, texted it to him.

Shortly after winning the first game 7-1, Bumgarner texted Parham back.

"He wrote how much he appreciated it and will never forget where he came from," Parham said.

Bumgarner never forgot the many exchanges at the mound with Parham, especially in tight circumstances. "I'd always try to challenge him by asking him the same thing: ‘Is that all you got?' and he'd always reply, ‘No sir.'"

So after he shutout Pittsburgh 8-0 in the National League wild-card game two weeks ago with 10 strikeouts and no walks, Parham texted Bumgarner the following:

"Is that all you got?"

To which Bumgarner texted back: "Coach, I believe that's all I got. Haha."

Judging by what he's done since, Bumgarner was indeed joking.

Madison Bumgarner can be a little intimidating on the mound in the majors, but nothing like he was here as a high school senior.

High school girls basketball: Lake Highland Prep, Westlake head GEICO Nationals' four-team field - HIGHSCORE
High school girls basketball: Lake Highland Prep, Westlake head GEICO Nationals' four-team field
Four of the top 15 girls basketball teams in the MaxPreps Top 25 have been invited to the 2021 GEICO High School Basketball Nationals to be played April 2-3 at Suncoast Credit Union Arena in Ft. Myers, Fla.

The April 2 semifinal games will be broadcast on ESPNU with action starting at 10:30 a.m. as No. 1 Lake Highland Prep (Orlando, Fla.) battles No. 10 Paul VI (Chantilly, Va.). The second semifinal is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. (ET) featuring No. 15 Fremont (Plain City, Utah) against No. 2 Westlake (Atlanta).

The winners face off  on ESPN2 at 10 a.m. April 3 for the championship.

The games will be played in conjunction with the 10-team boys GEICO Nationals.

Lake Highland (19-0) won the Florida 4A state championship on Feb. 27 with a 84-30 win over Lincoln Park Academy. The Highlanders are a remarkably balanced squad with seven girls averaging between 7.4 and 12.1 points per game. Senior Kayla Blackshear is headed to Alabama.

Second-ranked Westlake (21-0) had a much tougher state finals on Saturday, taking home the Georgia AAAAAA crown with a 64-46 victory over a 30-3 Carrollton team behind 26 points from junior Taniya Latson. Teammates Raven Johnson (South Carolina) and Brianna Turnage (Virginia Tech) are other top-ranked players. Latson averages 23.2 points and Johnson 15.1 points, 5.8 assists and 3.7 steals.

Paul VI won all 10 games in an abbreviated season but has a legitimate chance to win a national crown with top players Lee Volker, headed to Duke, and Bella Perkins. The Panthers haven't played since Feb. 9.

Fremont (26-0) won the Utah 6A title game 63-43 over a strong Herriman squad (23-2) behind 30 points and 12 rebounds by 6-4 post Emma Calvert. The BYU commit made 16-of-17 free throws and pulled down 12 rebounds. She averages a team-best 17.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.

Maggie Mendelson, a 6-5 sophomore, added 15 points and 13 rebounds in the title game for Fremont and averages 14.3 and 8.9. The Silverwolves have been without recent Oregon State commit Timea Gardiner, who averaged 13.5 points and 7.1 rebounds before an injury.

North Carolina high school basketball players adjusting to mask mandate - HIGHSCORE
North Carolina high school basketball players adjusting to mask mandate
Issued by North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper on Nov. 23, Executive Order No. 180 called for expanded face covering requirements. That has trickled down to high school sports, with athletes being required to wear masks during games and skill development sessions whether they are held indoor or outdoor.

The order went into effect Nov. 25 and runs through Dec. 11. According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Servies, it requires that everyone needs to wear a mask whenever they are with someone who is not from the same household. The order also adds the mask requirement to several additional settings including any public indoor space even when maintaining six feet of distance, gyms even when exercising, all schools public and private and all public or private transportation when traveling with people outside of the household.

Basketball practice is scheduled to begin Dec. 7 for NCHSAA-affiliated programs but the NCISAA tipped off last month and has already started to adapt to the new norm for the 2020-21 season in the Tar Heel State.

MaxPreps photographer Matthew Plyler was on hand Monday for a masked-up matchup between Northwood Temple Academy (Fayetteville) met Berean Baptist Academy (Fayetteville). Northwood Temple Academy won 69-68.

"Kids are resilient," Charlotte Country Day head coach David Carrier told the Charlotte Observer. "Kids adjust to things like this a lot quicker than adults."

The order extends to delayed NCHSAA fall sports that got underway in November like cross country and volleyball. The state reported 5,410 new COVID-19 cases Thursday with 44 deaths.

"We are asking our coaches, student-athletes and administrators for their continued vigilance and cooperation in these measures, including making sure to properly socially distance during skill development sessions and adherence to the mask mandate," NCHSAA executive director Que Tucker told the Lake Norman Media Group. "We all must do our part."

On the girls basketball side, Faith Christian Academy (Goldsboro) and Raleigh Christian Academy (Raleigh) were among the first to take the court Tuesday under the new order. MaxPreps photographer Steven Worthy was there to capture that moment.

Final 2018 HIGHSCORE Top 25 high school football rankings - HIGHSCORE
Final 2018 MaxPreps Top 25 high school football rankings
The 2018 high school football national championship came down to Texas Class 6A Division I champion North Shore (Houston) and California Open Division state champion Mater Dei (Santa Ana).

Following a miracle victory Saturday night, the final No. 1 ranking will go to North Shore.

The Mustangs finished 16-0 while beating some of the best teams in the Lone Star State and running the gauntlet in the nation's toughest postseason bracket.

North Shore outscored opponents 854-199 and won by an average margin of 41 points per game. The Mustangs won 15 of 16 games by double digits and captured the state title Saturday at AT&T Stadium on a Hail Mary as time expired against then-No. 3 Duncanville (Texas).

Among the Houston program's playoff wins were Katy, Cy-Fair (Cypress), Lake Travis (Austin), Dickinson and Duncanville, five teams that combined to go 59-4 against teams not named North Shore.

See the video for a complete look at this week's final Xcellent 25 rankings presented by the Army National Guard.

Deciding between a one-loss Mater Dei team, which played a national schedule, and an undefeated North Shore squad that didn't face out-of-state competition but ran through one of the toughest states in high school football was a difficult task.

The Monarchs were close to repeating as national champs but the 23-point loss against league rival St. John Bosco in October was a major factor — even though Mater Dei avenged that loss with a 17-13 victory to win the CIF Southern Section Division I championship.

The final rankings include teams from a dozen states. California and Texas each had three teams in the Top 10 and both states had two Top 5 representatives. California and Florida had the most teams in the final rankings with five teams each.
