Rancho Cucamonga, Los Osos volleyball teams return from big tournament

The volleyball teams from Rancho Cucamonga and Los Osos competed at the California Challenge hosted by Torrey Pines High School over the weekend and it was mixed success for both.

The event started with pool play on Friday and the Cougars picked up wins over Ironwood (Ariz.) and La Jolla, then lost to Harvard-Westlake.

Saturday Rancho lost to La Costa Canyon in the morning which dropped it into the Silver bracket where the Cougars defeated Ramona and lost to East Lake.

Coach Aaron Flores decided not to play his three top players in the last match and pulled the other starters at various points in that match too, citing the long weekend and upcoming matches this week.

“We got a lot out of it. We played some good teams and got some younger players some experience,” Flores said. “We also played different style teams. It was also nice to play against different girls we don’t know because all these girls here are used to playing with and against each other. We could have played a little better but we’re a better team because of the matches we played.”

Los Osos was a late addition to that field and coach Taylor Galliano was excited about his team’s showing, most notably an upset of the No. 2 seed in his pool Trabuco Hills, which won a CIF title last year in Division 1A.

The Grizzlies last 2-0 to La Costa Canyon but the second set went to 26-24.

“We had always played in the Durango Tournament but I wanted to change it up and go where we could see more Coastal schools and ones we might see down the line in the playoffs,” Galliano said. “It was a little faster pace and some bigger athletes and really helped us playing against that competition.”

The two Baseline League foes play each other on Tuesday. Flores said that during the tournament the two were playing on adjacent courts and his team noticed how well the Grizzlies played. Rancho has owned the rivalry of late so if there was an temptation of looking past Los Osos that might have been remedied.

“That was the best thing that could have happened,” Flores said. “Our girls know they’re going to have to be focused and play well.”

Los Osos pitcher Brandon Murillo to play at Willamette

Los Osos High School baseball standout Brandon Murillo has committed to NCAA Division III Willamette (Salem, Ore.).

He took a trip to the school Sept. 23 and liked what it had to offer in both athletics and academics. He plans to major in biology/pre-med.

“Of course everyone hopes to go to a Division I school growing up but I thought the Division III school was the best fit for me,” he said.

“It’s a great campus. I even got to sit in on a class and I think it will be a great place for me thrive on the field and academically,” he said.

Murillo has been on the Los Osos varsity since his sophomore year, being used primarily as a reliever. He is hoping to get a spot in the starting rotation this year.

“I really worked hard to get ready for this season and am hoping to showing what I can,” he said.

Willamette finished 20-18 last spring, including an 11-13 mark in the Northwest Conference.

Chaffey’s Rhese Gomez choses Nevada-Reno

Chaffey baseball standout Rhese Gomez has made a verbal commitment today to NCAA Division 1 Nevada-Reno.

Gomez, a junior pitcher and outfielder, made the decision official today. He visited the school in August and also had an unofficial trip to Arizona his freshman year. UC Riverside had also been showing a lot of interest.

“It’s a beautiful school and a beautiful campus,” he said. “It’s an up and coming program with a young coach that know what he’s doing. It’s in a great conference too so it seemed like a good fit.”

Gomez was a second-team All-Mt. Baldy selection last spring as a sophomore. He hit .281 in 21 games and did not make a fielding error.

An injury limited him to playing the outfield until the end of league play. He was 2-1 with a 1.56 ERA in three appearances when he finally did get to pitch.

Gomez has not decided on a major.

The volleyball teams from Rancho Cucamonga and Los Osos will participate in the California Challenge hosted by Torrey Pines at Alliant University in San Diego.

There are 32 teams, separated into eight pools. Each team will play three best-of-three pool play matches on Friday. Rancho Cucamonga is in the same pool with Ironwood (Ariz.), Harvard-Westlake and La Jolla while Los Osos is in a pool with La Costa Canyon, Trabuco and Notre Dame.

Among the other teams in the event are Santa Margarita, Mater Dei and San Juan Hills – the top three teams in Southern Section Division 1.

Rancho played in the event last year and placed third. It lost to eventual winner Torry Pines in the semifinal.

“It’s a good tournament. There are a lot of teams from out of state so you get to see other teams,” Cougars coach Aaron Flores said. “Our pool should be very competitive.”

First things first though. Both teams have Baseline League matches today. Rancho will be at Chino Hills while Los Osos will play at Upland.
