Judging by their record, it might appear that the Cypress High baseball team had just an average preseason. But with a young team and the third toughest schedule in the CIF-SS, Head Coach John Weber likes the progress he has seen in the Centurions. Cypress enters the Empire League with a 10-7-1 record and big boost of energy after capping the National Classic Tournament with a 4-0 win behind a no-hitter by Junior Pitcher Tyler Chaffee.

The Los Alamitos High girls basketball team’s run in the CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs came to an end with a 48-40 loss to West Torrance on Saturday at Los Alamitos High.

Heading into last week, the Academy League girls basketball race was looking like a two-team battle for the championship. Oxford Academy made it fairly clear that it was their title to lose, as they took down Sage Hill Academy, 68-36, in the first meeting between the two teams. 

A movement recently rose up from Los Alamitos and has reached out to people all around the southland and even out of state. The movement, in this case, is an actual physical movement. Burpees have become a trend, thanks to a cause taken up by the Los Alamitos High football team.
