Calvin Tang named boys basketball coach at Los Osos

Calvin Tang has been appointed head boys basketball coach at Los Osos. He replaces Dave Smith, the coach that built the program from its inception.

Tang, 34, spent the last four years at Hesperia, the last three heading the varsity program and the first assisting on the junior varsity level. His team was 61-24 in his three years including a still-in-tact 21-game Mojave River League win streak.

The Scorpions went 23-7 the past season, advancing to the CIF Southern Section Division 3A semifinal where they lost to Twentynine Palms 65-54.

Tang grew up in Riverside and played three years of basketball at Arlington. He went on to play at Sierra Community College in the more Northern part of the state.

He also spent four years as an assistant coach at Sierra after his playing eligibility expired.

From there he moved on to NCAA Division II Metropolitan State in Denver where he served as an assistant for two years, helping the team to postseason berths.

The Etiwanda baseball team will be honored at Angels Stadium in pre-game festivities on Friday before the scheduled game against the Kansas City Royals,

Several other teams winning CIF titles will also be saluted.

The Eagles (27-3) finished off a storybook season by beating Palm Desert 2-1 for their first CIF Southern Section title, this coming in a very competitive Division 2.

Coach Don Furnald’s team started the season 1-2, then won 26 of the next 27 games, the lone loss in that stretch coming in Baseline League play to Los Osos 3-2. Two of the team’s three losses were by a run.

“It will be a lot of fun for our kids, something they will always remember,” he said.

Sarah Willis, who had a sensational freshman year at Ayala, will be transferring to Norco, she and her father confirmed this afternoon while at the Daily Bulletin for the All-Inland Valley photo shoot.

Willis helped the Bulldogs (24-11)  to a berth in the Division 2 Southern Section semifinal where they lost a heart-breaker to Hart 1-0 in 12 innings. She was 12-8 with a 1.62 earned run average and 144 strikeouts in 137 innings.

In addition, she batted .380 with 23 runs scored, 23 RBI, 8 doubles, 2 triples and 4 home runs.

Among the other big moments she had this season was a solo home run that was lone score of the game in a 1-0 quarterfinal win over Los Altos.

The Bulldogs had another pitcher as well in Katelyn Williams who was 10-3 with as 2.12 ERA but she just graduated. They had another freshman in Madison Sanchez who had four appearances (two starts) in which she had an 0.62 ERA in 12 innings.
