San Bernardino Valley College soccer standout Katie Hernandez is the latest in a long line of SBVC players to sign with NAIApower Kansas Wesleyan University.
Hernadez, a midfielder out of Beaumont High School, was a second team All-Foothill Conference selection the past season. She managed six goals and five assists in helping the Wolverines to a conference title.
She will join teammate Cynthia Chavez who signed with KWU in May. Several others from the school have also played there in recent years
Kansas Wesleyan University is located in Salina, Kansas, which is about 85 miles north of Wichita and about 180 miles west of Kansas City. The Coyotes went 8-0-1 in conference play, with an overall record of 13-5-2 in 2014.
San Bernardino Valley College shortstop Tyler Robles has decided to spend the last two years of his collegiate career at University of North Dakota.
Robles, an Etiwanda High School graduate, visited the school located in Grand Forks over the weekend and like it enough to make a commitment on the spot.
And yes he knows it gets gold there.
“They have a brand new indoor facility that is is supposed to be done in August,” he said. “Yes I am from Southern California and I have thought about it but I think I can handle it.”
Robles hit .333 with 28 runs scored and 25 RBI in leading the Wolverines to a Foothill Conference title this season. He was also part of a title winning team as a freshman at SBVC.
He plans to major in kinesiology and wants to be a coach/teacher.
“It has always been a dream of mine to play Division I baseball and this is a great opportunity. I’m very excited,” said Robles, a second team All-Foothill Conference selection.
Chaffey College basketball standout Carl Robinson has decided on a four-year school. The sophomore point guard is headed to NAIA Bellevue University (Neb.).

Bellevue plays in the Collegiate Athletic Conference. It went 28-6 overall last year, 11-3 in conference. It has played in the postseason the last 14 years, losing a first-round game last year.conference
