Two SBVC athletes sign with Cal State L.A.

Two athletes from San Bernardino Valley College will be continuing their careers at Division II Cal State Los Angeles. Both basketball player Shy Walter and soccer standout Megan Dias will attend the school which competes in the CCAA along with locals Cal State San Bernardino and Cal Poly Pomona.

Dias, a midfielder out of Colony High School, is the schools all-time leader in scoring (28 goals) and points leader (72). She was a two-time all-conference selection, managing 11 goals and 14 assists last season in helping the Wolverines to their best season ever.

She will be joining an Eagle team coming off its best season ever at 13-6-4. The team was ranked as high as No. 15 nationally last year.

Walter, a 5-foot-10 shooting guard out of Perris High School, averaged 11.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.4 steals in helping the Wolverines (26-6, 15-1) to a Foothill Conference title. She had a season-high of 23 points against Rio Hondo and a high of nine rebounds twice. She was a first-team all-conference selection.

Thats a good place for her, Crebbin said. Its close to home but not too close to home. What she does well will work into their style of play and she should be able to play right away. I am very happy for her.

Cal State Los Angeles (9-17) finished ninth in the 11-team CCAA last year.
