Miller football standout Freddy Livai headed to BYU

freddy_livaiThe Miller High football team is still looking to get some on-field success, but it’s getting it off the field.

Soon-to-be senior linebacker/defensive end Freddy Livai has verbally committed to Brigham Young University.

“It’s been my dream school ever since eighth grade,” said Livai. “And my cousin goes there.”

Livai’s cousin is Sione Takitaki, who played at Menifee Heritage in high school and will be a sophomore this season.

Livai won’t be joining his cousin right away, however. As a Mormon, he intends to go on a church mission immediately after high school.

The BYU commitment didn’t come without plenty of offers. He received interest from several Pac-12 schools and, according to, he received offers from Colorado, Oregon State, UNLV, Washington State and Weber State.

As a junior Livai played defensive end and strongside linebacker, recording 93 tackles, 9 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery, 1 interception and 18 tackles for loss.

Embedded image permalink

Housley, 15, was competing in a travel ball game with the California Thunder on Saturday in Fontana and had an aneurysm while at bat in the final inning. Medical personnel hurried to the scene and she was rushed to Kaiser Permanente where she had remained on life support ever since.

Masucci said Housley was a promising young player, so much so that she had seen some time on the varsity squad despite being just a freshman. Much of her season was on the junior varsity but he had planned to bring her up for the playoff run.

The Eagles took to the field in her honor on Tuesday but lost a playoff game at Murrieta Valley 4-2. Players from both teams wore bows in their hair with her No. 21 on them. There were several posters

An outpouring of support for Housley, her family and the Etiwanda community has been evident. There were remembrances of her at games all over Southern California on Tuesday.

A GoFundMe account to help the family has already generated more than $56,000. Here is a link to that if you want to help.

Brett Borgogno of Chino Hills commits to Cal State Fullerton

Sophomore shortstop Brett Borgogono of Chino HIlls High School has made a verbal commitment to Cal State Fullerton.

Borgogono is hitting .333 with 23 runs scored and 12 RBI, which helped the Huskies to a share of the Baseline League title and a berth in the Division 2 quarterfinals.

He has visited the school on at least four occasions and grew up a Titan fan because his father went there. So it was not a difficult decision.

“I like the team chemistry and the coaching staff and I think playing there will help me take my game to the next level,” he said.

Borgogno was also considering Oregon, San Diego State  and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

He plans to major in business.

“I  am sure of the decision so I figured why wait,” he said of making his announcement early. “I have always wanted to go there.”

Los Osos softball team pulls upset of top seed

The Los Osos softball team may have finished a disappointing third in the Baseline League this season but the Grizzlies are trying to make up for that with a nice run in the postseason.

So far coach Mike Randall’s team has done just that. Los Osos upset top-seeded Corona Santiago 3-2 in a Division 1 second round game today.

Randall was confident his team was going to come out on top, saying as much earlier in the day. The fact that his team defeated Santiago 4-1 in a non-league game early this season had a lot to do with that.

“I told the girls not to buy into the hype,” he said. “They’re good. But I don’t think there is a team out there we can’t beat if we play our game.”

The Grizzlies, who needed last inning heroics to win a first round game over Chino, trailed Santiago 2-0 but got even with a pair of runs on the same play in the fifth. Pitcher Ciera Schick got a run home with a sacrifice fly but another run came home on an error.

The eventual game-winning hit came off the bat of Lexi Colon with two outs in the bottom of the sixth.

The boosts Los Osos (20-12) into a quarterfinal game on Thursday at El Modena (21-8) which defeated Huntington Beach 8-2.

Damien boys volleyball falls in state playoff opener

The season finally came to an end for the Damien boys volleyball team.

The Spartans (26-7), who won a CIF Southern Section title in Division 5, were dealt a 3-0 loss (25-17, 25-15, 25-18) by Corona del Mar in the first match of the Southern California Region of the state playoffs.

The Spartans were seeded eighth and played in Division 5 all season while Corona del Mar was the top seed and came out of Division 1 so Damien coach Randy Bohlmann thought his team held its own.

“We came out and really competed,” said Bohlmann, whose school has had a team for just five years and had never been past the quarterfinal until this season. “They’re a very, very good team and it was fun to play against a team of that level.”

Chris Jorritsma had 10 kills and a block while Chris Mercado added eight kills. Junior libero Nick Hibshman had 16 digs while senior setter Christian Hernandez tallied 28 assists.

Bohlmann thinks his team will now have higher expectations after experiencing a deep run in the playoffs. He currently has 48 players in the program, something few other programs can claim.

“We have a pretty good pipeline now,” he said. “We might not be quite this good but I still think we’re going to be pretty good moving forward.”
