    Zach Ewing's Week 6 previews and predictions

    Ready or not, here comes league play. Besides the obvious — league titles — much playoff seeding will be decided in the next five weeks, and there will be fewer and fewer mismatches. Of course, in high school sports, there are always a...

    Central Section football rankings, Week 6 (expanded)

    It was a rare peaceful week in the Central Section, partly because many top 25 teams had their bye weeks and partly because the favorites won in most places where there was action. The game of the week, no doubt, was Bakersfield's...

    BVARSITY TOP 25 RANKINGS: Quiet week in section leads to few changes

    It was a rare peaceful week in the Central Section, partly because many top 25 teams had their bye weeks and partly because the favorites won in most places where there was action. The game of the week, no doubt, was Bakersfield's...

    Week 5 HS football score updates

    Here's tonight's schedule, with one particular game looming above all others. The rest of the slate? Nothing really sticks out, though undefeated Kennedy and Kern Valley both get their stiffest tests of the season. But sometimes it's weeks...

    Zach Ewing's Week 5 previews and predictions

    There weren't shocking results, necessarily, from this Friday's action, just a few toss-ups that went the way of the team Trevor and I didn't expect to win. Clovis got off to a hot start and that buried Cetennial. Liberty's defense did...

    Central Section football rankings (expanded), Week 5

    A week full of upsets in the Central Section shook up the rankings considerably, though most top teams survived. Top-ranked Edison had a bye, and top-five teams Bakersfield and Ridgeview shook off slow starts to rout L.A.-Salesian and...

    Smith, Sharp injury update

    Matt Smith and Isaiah Sharp are two of the best running backs in the Central Section, and both are likely to miss this Friday's games. Sharp, the lead running back at Frontier, left the game with a lower ankle sprain in the Titans 16-7...

    Crop circles at Ridgeview?

    Late last night, we here at BVarsity were looking at game footage and I couldn't help but notice that there were some peculiar markings on the field at Ridgeview. I assume that this is nothing more than a high-and-tight mowing mistake, but...

    Week 4 scores (UPDATED)

    There are a couple of themes as Kern County high school football hits the one-third pole. One is the start of league play — at least in the South Sequoia League, where having seven teams necessitates seven weeks of conference action. The...

    Centennial volleyball peaking after win over Independence

    Don't let the record fool you, Centennial is a legitimate volleyball team. Despite a sub .500 record coming into the non-league match Thursday, the Golden Hawks are peaking at the right time after a 20-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-21 win over...
