Rancho not going easy on itself in passing tourney

Rancho Cucamonga is hosting a 12-team passing tournament on Saturday. While the host school may be the most touted program in the tournament after a second consecutive appearance in the CIF-SS Inland Division semifinals last season, the Cougars will have a two-time defending CIF champion to contend with in their own team pool. West Covina, which won the CIF-SS Southeastern Division championship game by a score of 84-21 over Whittier La Serna, will be in a pool with Rancho Cucamonga and Ganesha.

Chino Hills, which as of two weeks ago has a new quarterback in Colony transfer Matt Simko, is joined in a pool by Bishop Amat and San Juan Hills. Claremont, Diamond Bar and Ontario form an all-local pool and Ayala, Corona Santiago and Huntington Beach round out the field.

Following pool play, the top four teams will play semifinals at 11:30 a.m. with the winners meeting in the final at 12:20 p.m.
