Alta Loma holds its own against best of the Mt. Baldy

The Alta Loma football team couldn’t get out of the Baseline League fast enough. The Braves had lost every league game for five years, that’s 25 straight dating back to the last game of the 2008 season, before being shipped over to the Mt. Baldy League this year.

Call it changing demographics, economic status of some of the newer schools. But outside of a chosen few sports, the school hasn’t been able to hold its own.

Most thought the Braves would immediately contend in the Mt. Baldy, which is considerably weaker in most sports.

The thinking this year was that Colony it the overwhelming favorite, especially with Chino departing for another league too.

So there was a lot of anticipation in seeing how the Braves would fare against Colony. They held their own. The score was 49-22 Colony although the game was closer than that most of the way.

The Braves played hard and never gave up and even contended after junior quarterback Jacob Hennie was injured in the first half. He didn’t return.

It isn’t likely any other team will challenge an experienced Colony team either. The Braves have a legitimate shot at finishing second which would be good enough for a playoff berth. That would be great for the school, its students and athletes.

Diamond Bar to go without twin brothers next two weeks

Diamond Bar coach Marcus Hughes has a huge dilemma on his hands. Senior twins Kyle and Tyler Peterson were both injured in last week’s 40-14 loss to South Hills. They won’t be available for this week’s game against Claremont or next week’s contest at Bonita either.

It isn’t just losing two seniors. It’s two seniors who play skill positions. And since they are both starters on both sides of the ball, it’s like losing four players.

“It’s definitely a big blow,” Hughes said. “I don’t know of many teams that can overcome that type of loss but no one is going to feel sorry for us. We just have to do the best we can and get other guys ready to play.”

Kyle, a receiver and linebacker, sprained an ankle in the first few minutes of the game while Tyler, a quarterback and free safety, took a hard hit and sustained a concussion. They both ended up in the hospital at the same time Friday night.

The Brahmas finished the game with versatile running back Antonio “Noodles” Hull at quarterback. He’ll likely be the player getting the call again this week.

Depth has become an issue and complicated the picture. The player who would have been the backup quarterback sustained an injury in the junior varsity game last week, the day before the varsity game.

A backup wide receiver, who probably would have seen additional playing time with Kyle getting hurt, is also out. So Hughes is trying to make a lineup out of what he has left.

“At least we had a week to work on what we’re going to do,” Hughes said. “It was really tough losing those guys early in that game, then having to make all the adjustments in game.”

Tyler had thrown for 397 yards and run for 492 more. On defense he has 19 tackles and an interception.

Kyle had 12 receptions for 177 yards. On defense he had 29 tackles and two sacks.

Bonita athlete leads school’s Dig Pink effort

Nowadays all high school athletic teams have a game/match to raise awareness for breast cancer research. Even football teams will wear pink wristbands to commemorate the occasion.

Bonita High School senior volleyball standout Riley Inman is taking the fight against breast cancer personally. She is spearheading the school’s sixth annual Dig Pink fundraiser which will take place during the Bearcats matches against South Hills on Tuesday.

“I really wanted to do this,” said Riley, who has been working on the event since the summer. “Everybody has been touched by this disease and I wanted to try and make a difference.”

Riley lost an aunt to the disease seven years ago. The event is dedicated to Sandy Boulware, a member of the LaVerne community who has two daughters who have attended Bonita and lost her fight with breast cancer over the summer.

Riley’s goal was to raise $5,000 but by Monday night she had already earned $6,000, thanks largely to a personal donation of $2,600 by one individual. Now she’s hoping to generate $10,000.

The biggest task has been gathering donations for a raffle and for gift baskets which will be a big part of the event. Proceeds from food and concession items as well money generated from the sale of pink items such as wristbands and necklaces will also go toward the Side Out Foundation.

There will also be a slide show profiling breast cancer survivors as well as some who have lost their battle with the disease.

The freshmen teams from the schools square off at 3 p.m., with the junior varsity teams following at 4:30 p.m. The varsity match will start about 6 p.m.
