Another year on the high school sports scene has come and gone, but not without local athletes again turning in outstanding performances.
Below are some of the highlights from the 2011 calendar that were reported to the Independent.
The only CIF Southern Section championship won by a local school during the 2010-11 school year came in girls' basketball. It happened during late-winter and was captured by Edison. Senior Bonnie Samuelson stole an inbounds pass in the closing seconds and hit the winning shot before the clock expired to give the top-ranked Chargers an exhilarating 45-44 victory over No. 2 Troy in the Division 1A final March 3 at Anaheim Arena. Dan Wiley took Edison to a Southern Section final in his third year as head coach. Edison, which went 10-0 to win the Sunset League, won its first section title since 1987 and second overall.
