What About Scripps Ranch High School? Can't Get a Preview Of That Team?


Anthony Gentile Aug. 27, 2012 @ 10:03 p.m.

Decided to do previews for each of the teams in the Preseason Top 10 along with Christian, the Division V champion, and Steele Canyon, who has a new head coach this season. Is Scripps Ranch going to make noise this season?
