All-Conference honors not always an “honor”

There’s nothing like watering down what is supposed to be a nice honor. The issue came to my attention as I’m typing in the All-Foothill Conference selections for softball in this same space.

There were a total of 21 players named to the first-team alone in women’s softball. There were another 16 named to the second team. That’s totally ridiculous for a sport in a good conference, much less a bad one. The Foothill Conference is good in some sports but softball isn’t one of them.

I’m OK with maybe 12 – nine position players in addition to a Pitcher of the Year and Player of the Year, maybe one utility player. More than 12 and it ceases to be that much of an honor.  This isn’t one of those leagues where everyone gets saluted for “participation.”

It is evident in the selections that it is predetermined how many selections each team will get, with every team getting at least a token selection. So even last-place Barstow (6-29, 1-13) had two selections, a first team and a second team selection. The first-place selection from Barstow hit .286, .a .286 in a weak conference, Ugh, OK!

First place College of the Desert had 10 selections. So every player in the starting lineup made All-Conference. Really?

Maybe coaches feel pressured to push for their players, lest they be subject to ridicule from parents, much like it can be at the high school level. Well at the college level we’re dealing with adults. We shouldn’t be throwing lots of names out there just so no one’s feelings are hurt.

Picks for this week’s local college football games

There isn’t a lot of action on tap locally this weekend with most of the area teams hitting the road.

Here’s the rundown of six games involving area teams and my guess as to how they will come out.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (0-6, 0-4) at Redlands (3-3, 3-1), 7 p.m.

Not a tough one here. The Bulldogs are not clicking on all cylinders offensively but they won’t need to be against a young, overmatched Stags team. Redlands wins 45-21.

La Verne (3-3, 3-1) at Chapman (4-2, 3-1), 7 p.m.

Probably the toughest to pick of local games. The Leopards are the up and coming team in the SCIAC. Both teams have a stellar running back. It likely comes down to what others bring to the table. I will go with Chapman at home, 27-21.

Pomona-Pitzer (0-6, 0-4) at Occidental (1-5, 1-3), 7 p.m.

Much here hinges on whether the Sagehens are with or without RB Luke Sweeney. Oxy is struggling like it hasn’t in a long while but it is playing at home and has a good passing game which will make the difference. Oxy 42, Pomona-Pitzer 17

San Bernardino Valley (4-3, 3-1) at San Diego Mesa (3-4, 2-2), 6 p.m.

The Wolverines have gotten on a roll offensively but need a better showing defensively than what they have been getting. They likely get by again. SBVC 42, San Diego Mesa 32

Chaffey (2-5, 2-2) at East Los Angeles (4-3, 1-3), 6 p.m.

The Panthers have had trouble stopping the passing game and ELAC has one of the best. Than in itself is a big problem. Now throw in the fact they have an injured kicker. Probably won’t end well.  ELAC 48, Chaffey 21

Compton (0-7, 0-4) at Victor Valley (1-6, 0-4), 1 p.m.

The Rams have been bad. But no one is as bad as Compton, whose losing streak dates back to 2010. Victor will come out of its slump easily. Victor Valley 38, Compton 7
