Chino Hills hosting basketball event in honor of former player

There will be basketball action at Chino Hills High School today in honor of former Huskies standout Nnamdi Okongwu, who died over the summer after sustaining a head injury while skateboarding.

There will be several informal games today at the school.

Action gets underway with Cantwell vs. Alemany at 2 p.m.

Chino Hills will follow against Tsinghua (China), with Los Angeles Fairfax taking on the Chinese team at 5.

The last game of the night will feature a team on which Nnamdi’s younger brother Oneyka plays.

Los Osos receiver Caleb Repp chooses Utah


Los Osos High School wide receiver Caleb Repp has committed to University of Utah, following a visit to that school last weekend.

“I really liked the fans and the school and the coaches,” he said. “They were also the school that had the most interest in me all along.”

The 6-foot-5 senior standout has 22 receptions foe 430 yards and five touchdowns, the longest being an 80-yard play.

With half the season left he is almost up to what he managed last year. As a junior he tallied 27 catches for 502 yards and seven touchdowns.

Repp also had a visit planned to Nevada and was going to schedule on to University of Texas-El Paso with the latter being for track.

The Grizzlies play Silverado on Friday for homecoming.


Ontario Christian looking for girls basketball coach

Ontario Christian School is looking for a varsity girls basketball coach.

Athletic Director David Parkes said Kristen Hoekstra resigned so she could pursue her master’s. She had headed the program since the 2006-2007 season.

“She didn’t think she could give her all to both,” Parkes said. “We’re definitely going to miss her. She did a great job of creating a personality for that program.”

Parkes said interested candidates can get an application on the school’s website.








Alta Loma quarterback out with concussion


Alta Loma (2-2) will be without junior quarterback Jacob Hennie when it faces Grand Terrace (1-2) on Friday.

Hennie, who has thrown for 581 yards and rushed for 244 yards more, sustained a concussion last week against Summit.

The good news for coach Joe Szczepanski is that the Braves have a bye next week and Hennie is expected to be ready for the Mt. Baldy League opener against Montclair on Oct. 10.

Senior Austen Tanner, the starting quarterback on the junior varsity last year, will replace Hennie.

“We’re still going to do what we do,” Szczepanski said. “One kid gets hurt the next has to be ready to play. He’s had a couple of quarters and he’s getting all the reps this week in practice so he’ll be ready to go.”

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.
