SBVC finishing up a strong fall

It’s been a pretty good fall sports season at San Bernardino Valley College.

The men’s cross country team came back from Fresno on Saturday with yet another state championship. That’s five in a row and counting. That streak seems like it will go on as long as Wes Ashford is there as coach. This one was a little closer than the others but the streak is still in tact.

The football team went 7-4 overall. The Wolverines were 7-3 in the regular season and finished first in the American Division Mountain Conference. They lost a Bowl game on Saturday at L.A. Pierce but it doesn’t take away from a fine season, led by the record-breaking showing of Kristin James.

It’s hard to believe this team was 0-10 two years ago.

The women’s soccer team is 17-1-3 with three straight Foothill Conference titles. They won a first-round playoff game on Saturday and host Cypress at 2 p.m. on Tuesday.

Those teams all have fine coaches that have done a lot with modest resources. It also goes to show you can win with local talent.
