Some teams stood out more than others, even if they brought home a CIF championship or not.
San Pedro, Port Of Los Angeles and Mary Star Of The Sea High Schools have brought on some extraordinary moments that even yours truly couldn't comprehend, and the list of achievements have been mind-boggling.
