Transfer totals for 2017-18 in the Southern Section
Transfer totals for 2017-18 in the Southern Section (Southern Section)

The Southern Section released its latest transfer figures for April, and the total for 2017-18 among its high schools is 7,226, up about 3% over last year’s number of 6,999 with one month of statistics to go.

In the Trinity League, Mater Dei is No. 1 with 71 transfers listed, but there are actually more than that because several football players who arrived this spring are not listed on the Southern Section website. Schools sometimes wait for the next school year to send in paperwork to confirm eligibility and addresses for fall athletes.

Orange Lutheran has 63 transfers, followed by Santa Margarita at 51, JSerra at 49, St. John Bosco at 47 and Servite at 26.

Oaks Christian and Servite also will be team contenders. Jake Marek shot 68 for Oaks Christian with Tristan Gretzky, the son of Wayne Gretzky, getting a 71.

Justman struck out 10 and Ruby Salzman hit a home run as the Chancellors defeated San Pedro 4-1 to claim the first Open Division title at Cal State Dominguez Hills.

It was Chatsworth’s 18th consecutive victory.

SOUTHERN SECTION

DIVISION 1

First round, Friday

Three games ended by walk-off home runs, including two grand slams. And the No. 1 seed goes down. Yes, it was quite an opening day in the Southern Section Division 1 baseball playoffs on Friday.

The shocker was No. 1-seeded Harvard-Westlake losing to Valencia 8-4. Valencia came in with a 15-16 record. Harvard-Westlake had a 16-game win streak and unbeaten right-hander Sam Hliboki (9-0) on the mound.

The Vikings went to bed on Wednesday night not even knowing they’d still be in the playoffs after a 4-3 wild-card victory because Oaks Christian filed a protest Thursday morning alleging an illegal practice. But the Southern Section ruled Oaks Christian had failed to make an official protest to the umpire before the game, keeping the Vikings alive.
