Alta Loma atheltics teams thriving in Mt. Baldy League

Most high school sports enthusiasts thought Alta Loma High School was in store for a special season in moving from the tough Baseline League to the Mt. Baldy which is a better fit demographically and from a population standpoint.

Well it has been just that and there is still a long way to go.

The Braves have won league titles in six sports with that run starting back in the fall with titles in girls volleyball and girls tennis. The volleyball team also made it all the way to the state championship match.

This winter the school claimed titles in wrestling, girls basketball, girls water polo and girls soccer. The title in girls basketball was the first in more than three decades in that sport.

The Braves were also second in boys soccer and tied for second in boys basketball.

“We thought we were going to be pretty competitive but we have done even better than we thought we would, especially with our girls sports,” Athletic Director Brett Proctor said. “It has definitely been a fun ride.”

Despite moving to the new league Proctor said it also has been important to maintain the rivalries his teams have developed with its geographic rivals in the Baseline. Rancho Cucamonga has been especially willing to schedule non-league games across the boards.

“That’s important to the kids and the whole community,” Proctor said. “We want to still play those teams as much as we can.”

We’re just hitting playoffs for the winter sports but it will be up the spring sports teams to continue that momentum.

Ontario continuing search for head football coach

Ontario High School is in the process of selecting a new head football coach.

Athletic Director Ryan Alvarez, who took the job on an interim basis after Ron Stocking stepped down three games into last season, decided not to seek the job on a permanent basis because of the workload already involved with that job.

Alvarez said the school will be interviewing three in district candidates on Monday.

After those interviews a decision will be made on whether or not it needs to be advertised outside.

Don Lugo coach steps down

Don Lugo football coach Lou Randall has resigned.

Randall, 62, had only headed the Conquistadores for the last two years but had been in the coaching profession almost four decades.

He called it a personal decision but adds that he plans to retire at the end of the school year.

He cited the demands of the job as well as the difficulty in balancing football and teaching a full load of math classes. He also lives in Moreno Valley, making for a difficult commute.

He says he’d like to be on someone’s staff as an assistant but it would probably be a school closer to home.
