Etiwanda Soccer wins Oak Hills Tournament, improves to 11-0 overall

The Etiwanda Eagles hold up the Oak Hills Tournament Championship after defeating Pasadena La Salle, 1-0, on Dec. 20.

The Etiwanda Eagles hold up the Oak Hills Tournament Championship after defeating Pasadena La Salle, 1-0, on Dec. 20.

Haley Ruegsegger scored the game-winning goal during the second half for the Etiwanda Eagles in the victory over Pasadena La Salle, 1-0, to win the Oak Hills Tournament on Dec. 20.

It was not the only win for the Eagles on the day as they advanced to the title game against La Salle, following a second shutout victory in the morning against the Oak Hills Bulldogs, 2-0, in the semifinals.

The Eagles’ Katie Connor and Aleenah Perez were responsible for the goals scored against the Bulldogs.

Following the victories in tournament play, the Eagles stand at 11-0 overall with two games remaining before the start of Baseline League play.

“(The record) gives the team the confidence that we need to keep pushing ourselves,” said freshman Kelsey Huddleston. “Even though we are 11-0, we can still work harder to keep this going.”

Despite the record, the Eagles believe they could still improve at this point in the season.

“I think this year we just really work as a team and we play well together,” Ruegsegger said. “But we could always work on our composure and one-on-one (situations) offensively.”

As a defensive unit, the Eagles have only given up four goals during the first 11 games of this season.

Etiwanda is currently ranked No. 5 in the state and will play at 1 p.m. Dec. 23 against Anaheim Esperanza on the road for its last game prior to the new year.

Upland cornerback Elijah Jones commits to Naval Academy

Cornerback Elijah Jones of Upland High School has committed to the Naval Academy.

He visited the school on Nov. 1, the weekend the Midshipmen took on Notre Dame. He also made an official visit to Yale and took unofficial trips to Harvard, Air Force, San Diego State and San Jose State.

“I thought it was the best combination of academics and athletics,” he said. “There is some job security that comes with it too because after graduation I’ll be a commissioned officer.”

Jones recorded 67 tackles, two interceptions, a fumble recovery and fumble caused in helping the Highlanders to a Baseline League title and 10-3 season that ended with a 24-14 loss to Vista Murrieta in the west Valley Division semifinal.

Jones’ father and an uncle served time in the Army. He said he appreciated the bond he saw with the Naval Academy players when he visited.

“It’s a tight bond and a brotherhood. I really liked that,” he said.
