Another record-setting, highlight-filled high school sports season comes to a close – Los Angeles Times

The 2016-17 high school sports season has officially come to a close, and the achievements and lessons learned will be hard to duplicate.

Birmingham became the first City Section school in 54 years to win upper division championships in basketball and baseball. Fremont was the last in 1963.

Junior infielder Brice Turang of Corona Santiago struck out once in 101 at-bats. He’s the new Rod Carew. Norco pitcher Garrett Irvin can one day tell his grandchildren he did the honor.

Tara Davis of Agoura took over as track and field’s Wonder Woman, winning the long jump, triple jump and 100 hurdles at the state championships. She set a state record in the long jump at 22 feet 1 inch and ran the fastest hurdles time (12.83 seconds) ever by a girl under all conditions.
