Claremont High grad honored for her play at APU

Claremont High School graduate Amber Williams, a senior at Azusa Pacific University, has been named Golden State Athletic Conference women’s basketball player of the week.

The 6-foot center scored 51 points and grabbed 33 rebounds as No. 13-ranked Azusa Pacific won both of its conference games last week. She shot 16-for-35 (.457) from the field and 19-for-23 (.826) at the line and recorded double-doubles in both games.

Williams tallied 30 points and 19 rebounds at Point Loma Nazarene and 21 points and 14 rebounds against San Diego Christian.

She leads the GSAC in scoring and rebounding and has 12 double-doubles for the season.

Cal State women lose scrimmage to CBU

Senior Unity Beddingfield’s first half goal was Cal State San Bernardino’s only goal Saturday in a 3-1 loss to Cal Baptist in an exhibition women’s soccer match at the Lancers field.

    The Coyotes were outshot 11-6 by the Lancers but had an edge in corner kicks, 6-5.

     Beddingfield’s goal came 13:57 into the back, just 43 seconds after Fabiola DaSilva, a junior from Curitibia, Brazil, put the Lancers up 1-0 at the 13:14 mark off an assist by Bernadette Witz.

     The tie lasted until the 34th minute when junior Kylee Nicassio, a junior out of Los Osos High School, put the Lancers on top 2-1 with an assist by DaSilva. DaSilva gave CBU an insurance score in the 57th minute on a penalty kick to finish the game with two goals and an assist.

Sophomore Tiffany Jo Mallick yielded all three CBU goals in 66 minutes of play while redshirt freshman Chelsey Jones came on to record a save and hold the Lancers scoreless over the final 23 plus minutes of the match.

     CSUSB will play Dixie State in a scrimmage next Saturday before opening up the regular season on Sept. 3 at home against Biola University.

Former Rim star named All-American

Congratulations go out to former Rim of the World High School volleyball standout Cassie Ells, who has earned NAIA first-team All-American honors for Concordia-Irvine.

Ells, a 5-foot-11 senior middle blocker from Crestline, recorded 256 kills and 99 total blocks for the Eagles (30-8), who advanced to the NAIA national semifinals before losing to unbeaten Fresno Pacific.

She totaled 37 kills, three solo blocks and 12 block assists in the NAIA national tournament. She had 13 kills in a quarterfinal win over Azusa Pacific.

Ells completed her four-year career as the school’s all-time leader with a .390 (573-142-1106) hitting percentage, thanks to a .423 (256-55-475) clip in 2009 that would have ranked second in the NAIA if it met the eligibility requirement of five attacks per set. Ells is the first Eagles player since 1990 and only the second in school history to hit over .400 in a season.

Her 243 career blocks also is good enough for eighth on the school’s career list.

Cal Baptist names new men’s soccer coach

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Ryan Jorden had been named the head coach of California Baptist University men’s soccer, Athletic Director Kevin Steele announced today.

Jorden becomes just the fourth head coach since CBU restarted men’s soccer in 1985, and he replaces Shayon Jalayer, who resigned in October after six seasons at the helm. This is Jorden’s first collegiate head coaching position.

“I am pleased that Ryan has accepted the position,” said Steele, who has now hired six new head coaches in less than three full years. “Ryan raised his stock immeasurably among an incredibly talented pool of applicants. His vast experience as a DI assistant and in the GSAC coupled with his enthusiasm and intelligence make him an excellent addition to our talented staff. We anticipate him taking this program to new levels of success in the very near future.”

Since 2000, Jorden has served as the lead assistant coach for Dave Wolf at GSAC-rival Westmont. During his time Santa Barbara, the Warriors were 82-39-11 and were consistently ranked in the NAIA Top 25. In 2000, the Warriors were ranked No. 1 in the NAIA, regional champions and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NAIA Tournament, finishing 19-5 overall. The Warriors were back-to-back GSAC co-champions in 2001 and 2002.

Jorden inherits a team that finished 6-10-1 in 2007, winning just two conference games. The Lancers have not made the playoffs since sharing the GSAC title in 1989.

With a penchant for player development, Jorden has worked and coached in all aspects of the soccer program, including fitness programming, scheduling and recruiting coordination. A graduate of Westmont, Jorden played for the Warriors from 1991-1994 and during that time was part of 65 wins and two national tournament appearances.

Jorden earned his bachelor’s in kinesiology from Westmont in 1995 and then became the assistant coach with the men’s soccer program at NCAA Division I Oregon State in 1996. During his four years at OSU, he completed his master’s degree in exercise science.

After returning to coach at Westmont for three years, he took a leave of absence in 2003 to pursue his Ph.D. in sport and exercise science with an emphasis in biomechanics at Northern Colorado and is currently ABD, expecting to defend in early 2008. During that 2003 season, he worked as an assistant coach with the UNC soccer program. Returning to Westmont in the fall of 2004, Jorden resumed his responsibilities in serving as a full-time member of the kinesiology faculty, teaching courses in biomechanics, research methods, motor control and a variety of physical activity courses.

A United States Soccer Federation (USSF) ‘A’ licensed coach with Olympic Development Program (ODP) experience in multiple states, Jorden just finished his 12th season of collegiate coaching. A native of Santa Barbara, Jorden and his wife Liz are proud parents of two sons, Graeme (four) and Evan (two).

Jorden will assume his new position Jan. 2.
