In the CIF Southern Section postseason, no measure of respect is awarded free. It's earned, one possession, one game, one victory at a time. Perhaps no team in the 3AA Division boys' basketball playoffs knows this better than Palm Desert High, a team that entered Friday's second-round game at Corona del Mar seeking respect as much as a win. The No. 13-seeded Aztecs, who went 12-0 to win the Desert Valley League, have made the playoffs six...

SEAL BEACH - Once you get to Seal Beach Tennis Center in the CIF Southern Section Individuals boys' tennis tournament, everyone is good. But Palm Desert High junior Austin Rapp was maybe just a bit tougher opponent than No. 2-seeded Corona del Mar senior Alec Adamson would have liked in the round of 16. The tournament is seeded based on the Southern California boys' 18 singles rankings. Rapp is ranked just No. 110 in the 18s, which is more than a bit misleading. He's still a top junior player who is ranked No. 3 in Southern California, and No. 19 nationally, in the 16s. Last year he and Palm Desert graduate Jack Felich won the CIF Individuals doubles title.
