The 2013-2014 season is officially over for prep boys soccer in San Pedro, and all three teams gave it their best shot with San Pedro and Mary Star High both making the playoffs, and Port Of Los Angeles narrowly missing the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division III playoffs.
A mid-season coaching change, injuries, and Fiorenza missing games in the Marine League due to sickness rattled the Lady Pirates in a 5-13 season in 2013, and the Pirates started off the 2013-2014 year 1-3 in the Downey Tournament, but after that, Fiorenza and San Pedro came back strong in a big way, going 14-9 overall, nearly tripling their win output of the previous season, and they even went 8-4 in the Marine League.
Fiorenza herself would have a…Continue
With the 2013-2014 boys basketball season officially ending in San Pedro prep sports, the San Pedro High boys basketball team was the only one of the three schools to extend their season to the postseason, where they lost 77-61 to Palisades in the first round of the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I playoffs, but that didn't diminish the exciting season they had.
Especially for San Pedro senior forward Quincy Thomas.
Thomas was able to lead the Pirates in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots, averaging over 20 points and a little under 10 rebounds a game, scoring…Continue
The 2011 season saw the Stars stun everyone to win the Camino Real League championship. In 2012, Mary Star would better that by not only winning the league for the second year in a row, it would post victories over both in-city neighbors Port Of Los Angeles and San Pedro, plus advancing to the CIF-Southern Section Division V quarterfinals. Last year, the Stars would up the ante once more.
Not expected to win a third straight Camino Real League championship, coach Gregg Aguilar and company would turn back…Continue

The Pirates dominated the prior decade, winning nine CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I titles during the 2000-2009 years where they made the finals every year, only finishing as the runner-up in 2005. That run not only put them ahead of everyone in the City for most titles won with 16 overall, it also made other teams more determined to dethrone them.
Since then, San Pedro has ended their seasons in 2010 through 2013 in either the quarterfinals or the semifinals, like last season's team that fell to…Continue
Every year the Port Of Los Angeles High softball team has reached the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Small Schools Division playoffs, they have taken home the championship. The 2013 season was a magical year as they not only won their third straight title, they dominated that division to the point where they basically outgrew the division.
So the 2014 Polar Bears have decided to step out and challenge themselves even more.
Scheduling tough tournaments and nonleague games have been the norm for fifth-year coach Melissa Bugarin-Espinoza but in perhaps the boldest move of…Continue
Gonzales started slow along with the team, who began 1-8-1 before Marine League play started, but since then, the Pirates have improved to 10-9-1 and claimed their ninth consecutive league title as they open the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I playoffs today as the seventh seed against visiting No.10 Bell at San Pedro High.
In fact, it was Gonzales' goal off a 20-yard free kick early…Continue
Port Of Los Angeles High girls soccer opens off the 2014 CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division III playoffs today as the third seed of the tournament against No.14 USC-MAST, and one player in particular is aiming for another chance at a championship.
Junior forward Melissa Rodriguez, who currently has 8 goals and 7 assists this season, has been to two straight City Section Division III finals and like everyone else on the team, all she's looking for is another chance at a championship after two straight final losses to LACES, the No.2 seed who POLA could potentially run into in the semifinals.…Continue
With only four seniors on the roster, the Pirates took their lumps through a grueling nonleague and Pirate Cup Tournament schedule, and they suffered a horrifying 3-2 upset loss to Banning of Wilmington Monday which ended their long streak, putting their long reign as Marine League champions in serious jeopardy when they took on rival Narbonne of Harbor City in a winner-take-all affair for the title.…Continue
