They found one in junior infielder Michelle Corona.
Most recently the Pirates, notably Corona, had struggled with runners in scoring position, but not on this exchange as Corona drilled a two-run single to right field, powering San Pedro to a dramatic 2-1 comeback victory at Granada Hills in the first round of the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I playoffs. That play was just another clutch playoff moment…Continue
That's exactly how the Port Of Los Angeles High softball team wanted their first round CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division III playoff opener against visiting New Designs of Los Angeles to go.
Going on a ten-run outburst in the second inning after opening off the game with six runs in the first, the top-seeded Polar Bears made no bones about their intentions of a three-peat by routing the No.16 Cardinals, 17-1 in five innings at the San Pedro Girls Softball Association Field. POLA (25-8 overall) pounded out 13 hits, six went for extra bases, to…Continue
Playing third base is a tough job it seems since it's the position that has the longest throw to first base on ground ball chances, but this job suits Demers to a T. Not making much mistakes fielding wise, and at the plate when she delivers clutch hits for the Stars, Demers has helped her team win three straight Camino Real League championships, including this season after last Wednesday's 2-0 win over Cantwell Sacred-Heart of Montebello sealed up the title.…Continue
When the CIF-Los Angeles City Section playoff pairings for baseball and softball were announced Saturday, everyone truly knew the Port Of Los Angeles High softball team was going to get the top seed in the Division III playoffs, and the prediction of that happening, if there were any, was true.

They too were awarded a top seed in the Division III playoffs.

With two-time defending CIF-Los Angeles City Section Small Schools champion Community Harvest of Los Angeles disbanding their whole baseball program, the Polar Bears have been looking forward to seize the moment after blowing a one-run lead against their nemesis in last year's semifinals, leaving with a disappointing 4-3 loss.
POLA would take their first step by clinching their first Crosstown League championship with a 10-2 win over visiting Bright Star of Los Angeles at Henderson Field in…Continue
CARSON - On April 9, the San Pedro High boys volleyball came to Carson High, and the Colts swept the Pirates three straight in their first Marine League battle. On April 25, the Pirates returned the favor with a sweep of their own to gain a share of their second straight league crown at San Pedro High.
They would meet again on Thursday for higher stakes because this was a CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I quarterfinal, and the Pirates were able to emerge victorious, 21-25, 25-18, 25-19, 21-25, 15-13. Senior middle blocker Sean Zuvich led the Pirates (24-7-1 overall) with 15 kills, 11 digs and six blocks, while senior setter Austin Freitas had 52…Continue
MONTEBELLO - It was said to be their most trying season ever due to the loss of eight seniors... and the improvement of Cantwell of Sacred Heart High of Montebello was going to be more than they could handle.
Mary Star High softball proved otherwise.
By virtue of their 2-0 victory over the host Cardinals, Mary Star would successfully defend their Camino Real League championship yet again, claiming their third straight outright crown in the process, and sophomore pitcher Marina Vitalich made sure she, nor the Stars were going to surrender…Continue

Known by those closest to him to “save lives,” Crowley’s work with the LGBT community at San Pedro High has been nothing short of transformative, making the campus safer for all students and brought together kids of all orientations to work with…Continue
In a match that wasn't relatively in doubt, the fifth-seeded Pirates (23-7-1) looked fresh and relaxed after a first round bye and not playing a match since sweeping Carson to get a share of the Marine League title back on April 25, while the Pathfinders (17-3) were coming off an impressive three-game sweep over Polytechnic of Sun Valley in the first round this past Thursday.
