Two-time CIF champion Chino pitcher named to all-state team

Miranda Viramontes actionGranted, she is among elite company in a state that fields elite softball teams, but the only surprise would have been if Miranda Viramontes wasn’t named one of the best in California. Fresh off leading her team to a second consecutive CIF championship, the rising senior pitcher committed to Utah was named to the Cal-Hi Sports All-State first team.

Viramontes won 21 consecutive starts to finish out the season. She posted a 0.36 earned-run average during the regular season and allowed two runs in five postseason games. In all, she finished with five no-hitters, six one-hitters and 15 shutouts.

Etiwanda UCLA-bound shortstop Delaney Spaulding and Rancho Cucamonga Florida-bound outfielder Justine McLean were named to the all-state second team. Spaulding hit .511 with 10 home runs, 36 RBIs and 45 runs scored her senior season while McLean batted .580 with 31 runs scored and 31 steals.

2013 All-Valley Boys Volleyball Team: Claremont senior follows in big footsteps

Steven Zetterberg Claremont POY
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Stephen Zetterberg, Claremont
Story By Staff Writer Michelle Gardner
Volleyball isn’t the traditional sport for boys to focus on growing up in the Inland Empire. For most that would be basketball, soccer or baseball.

Stephen Zetterberg grew up competing in those too but older brother Andrew played volleyball, so that’s the sport he gravitated toward.

He’s gotten pretty good.

Zetterberg, 17, registered 234 kills in 68 sets in leading the Wolfpack (25-6, 11-1 in Pacific League) to the second round of the CIF playoffs. He earned first team All-CIF recognition in Division II and is being honored as the All-Valley Player of the Year.

2013 All-Valley Boys Golf team: Damien’s Tsujimoto goes out on top

Brandon Damien Golf POY
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Brandon Tsujimoto, Damien, Senior
Story By Staff Writer Keith Lair
Brandon Tsujimoto started the 2013 golf season strong and finished just as strongly.

The senior helped the Spartans to the season-opening Riverside Poly tournament championship. He had Damien’s co-low score of the event. He had the Spartans’ low scores in other tournaments and helped Damien to an undefeated team season and the Sierra League title.

He was fourth in the Father Joe Barry Masters tournament at Ancil Hoffman Golf Course. The Spartans finished fourth in the two-day tournament. He was 16th in the three-day Champions Invitational at the Golf Club at Terra Lago. He was also low medalist in six league matches.

He seemed to play his absolute best golf when it counted the most. That would be the postseason.

2013 All-Area Tennis Team: Alta Loma’s Brown keeps advancing the ball

Victor Brown Alta Loma Tennis POYPLAYER OF THE YEAR: Victor Brown, Alta Loma, Jr.
Victor Brown’s season was difficult to measure in sets — he didn’t lose one in Baseline League play. The Alta Loma junior lost just two games en route to his third consecutive league championship.

Don’t be surprised if he improves on that number next season.

Brown’s game is clearly developing each season, evidenced by his trip to the CIF-SS Individual final this year.
As a freshman he reached the round of 16. His sophomore season ended with a 7-5, 7-6 loss in the quarterfinals — he still laments not having capitalized on a set point in the first — to eventual CIF champion Gage Brymer, who will play at UCLA in the fall.

2013 All-Valley Girls Track Team: High jumper proves she’s real McCoy

BS00-GIRLSTRACKMCCOY-01-TRCATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Rachel McCoy, Miller, Senior
Story by Pete Marshall, Staff Writer
It’s hard to fathom that at the beginning of the season, she was quitting track and field. By the end, she was winning state and hoping to compete in track in college.

“I always knew I could do it (win state),” Miller senior Rachel McCoy said. “But it’s always surprising when I actually do it.”

Such was the journey this season for McCoy. The senior, who has signed with Long Island University to play basketball, won state in the high jump as a sophomore with a solid, but unspectacular jump of 5 feet, 8 inches. That gave her an ego problem.

“I got this attitude that I can do anything,” she said. “This should be run my way. It was immature to think that.”

2013 All-Valley Boys track team: Etiwanda’s Parish reaches new heights

forsaleTRACK ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Miles Parish, Etiwanda
It’s a good thing Miles Parish is 6-foot-5.

He needed every inch of his towering frame to win the CIF State championship in the 400 meters.

“My coach told me before the race that it was going to be so close I would have to lean at the finish,” Parish said. “I didn’t know for sure I won until the announcer said it.”

At that very moment, it all become worth it. All the excruciating ladders, the weight lifting, the monotonous training.
