However you want to label the last four months of high school sports, amid a global pandemic, it was eventful to say the least. As clustered as it was, most sports got played in some fashion or another. Seasons were short, playoffs are only taking place for those that played in the spring, but, again, at least there was a chance to get some games in.

As the 2020-21 school year comes to an end, the fun is just beginning for program like baseball and softball, who could end up playing through the end of June. Which means, it is win or go home time for spring sports teams and just as quickly as it all started, it is also ending for more than half of the local teams that made it to the playoffs already. In fact, only a few local teams remain in the hunt for an elusive CIF Southern Section title. The following teams are still in the hunt to be the last one standing:
