Memorial baseball game for former player approaching


The second annual Jake Pilkerton Memorial Baseball Game is slated for 1 p.m. Nov. 8 at Fiscalini Field.

Pilkerton was a baseball standout at Rim of the World High School, then went on to play two years at San Bernardino Valley College and two at Cal State San Bernardino.

Pilkerton, who played second base and earned multiple honors in his prep and collegiate career, was killed in an automobile accident on Aug. 3, 2013.

There will be a raffle, memorabilia and food and beverages available with the proceeds going toward a trust fund that will be distributed to help the baseball programs at all three schools for which Pilkerton played.

Athletes who played with him at one of the three schools are invited to play in the nine-inning contest.

Donation items are still needed, as are players or volunteers to help run the event.

For more information or to help out call Matthew Winn at (951) 807-9867 or Catherine Figone at (760) 899-9473.

Montclair football will forfeit two wins

Montclair High School started out the season 3-0 but the Cavaliers will be 1-2 on paper because the school will be forfeiting a 42-0 win over San Gabriel as well as a 23-6 victory over Garey.

The 34-19 win over Duarte will stand.

Montclair Athletic Director Bill Blades said the forfeits are the result of a paperwork oversight on a student-athlete that transferred into the school in the spring.

The student had sixth period football class in the spring and since he was in the school had grades, two places a possible oversight would have been caught.

But Blades said he was missing a form that needed to be signed off on by the parents, the school from the athlete came and the CIF.

“It’s unfortunate,” Blades said. “This doesn’t have to affect us moving forward. They’re not league games so our goal of winning league and going on to the playoffs is still there and reachable.”
Montclair is off this week but returns to action next Friday against Pomona High School.

Etiwanda’s Kameron Edwards commits to Pepperdine


Etiwanda High School basketball standout Kameron Edwards has committed to Pepperdine.

Edwards was a first-team Baseline League and All-Inland Valley selection as a junior, helping the Eagles to the Open Division semifinals where they lost in double overtime to national No. 1 Mater Dei. He was also a second-team All-CIF selection.

Edwards, a 6-foot-5 forward, averaged 13,6 points and a team-high 7.2 rebounds in his first year as a varsity starter. His sophomore season was limited because of a broken ankle.

Edwards also made an official visit to Santa Clara with unofficial trips to University of San Diego, UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton.

“The scenery is just beautiful,” Edwards said. “I really enjoyed the people I met and I like the direction the program is headed.”

Edwards also welcomed the chance to get the decision made so he can focus on his senior year. He is also close to his family and preferred to stay close enough they can come see him play.

“I want to be able to just worry about practice and games and not all the other stuff,” he said.

With the departure of Jordan McLaughlin (to USC), Edwards his expected to have an even more prominent role for the Eagles this season.

Edwards plans to major in something in the business field.

Colony’s Derrick Bruce chooses Oregon State


Basketball standout Derrick Bruce of Colony High School has decided he’ll play next year at Oregon State but first he is headed to Florida. It’s not as confusing as it sounds.

Bruce, a first-team All Inland Valley selection last year, graduated in June but has decided to attend West Oaks, a prep school in Orlando first. Then he’ll head to Oregon State in the fall of 2015.

“I want to get bigger and stronger and work on my game,” he said. “I think it will help a lot before going and playing in the Pac-12.”

Bruce averaged 21.3 points, 5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.1 steals in helping the Titans (23-8) to a Mt. Baldy League title and berth in the Division 2-A quarterfinals. He had a season high of 40 points against Chino.

His postseason accolades include being named Mt. Baldy League Most Valuable Player as well as first-team All-CIF honors in Division 2-A.
Oregon State was the only school he visited. He also had a trip planned to Gonzaga but cancelled that after making his commitment. He also made unofficial trips to Cal and USC.

“I am very excited about being to compete in the Pac-12,” he said. “And I really liked the coaching staff at Oregon State.”
