Rain forces shuffling of Baseline baseball, softball

The expected rain at the end of the week has meant a log of game changes for baseball and softball in the Baseline League.

The softball games scheduled for Thursday are being moved to Wednesday. That’s Upland at Etiwanda, Chino Hills at Los Osos and Rancho Cucamonga at St. Lucy’s.

Baseball games are normally Wednesday and Friday but because of the expected rain all teams will play doubleheaders Wednesday. That will be Etiwanda vs. Upland at Memorial Park, Rancho Cucamonga at Damien and Chino Hills at Los Osos.

Games at Damien and Los Osos will be 1 and 4 p.m. but because Memorial Park has lights those games will be at 3 and 6 p.m.

There aren’t a lot of options to get the games in since this is the last week of the regular season and the CIF wants all games done by Friday so the playoff pairings and draw can be completed without delay.

Colony to host water polo program fund-raiser

Colony High School will hold a fund-raiser for the water polo program at 6 p.m. on Thursday when the school’s team take on one from the Ontario Fire Department.

Admission is $3 for students and $5 for adults. Proceeds will go toward purchasing caps and balls for both the girls and boys programs. The cost to supply those for the boys and girls, varsity and lower level teams can range up to $3,000.

“I don’t know how much it will raise but we really thought it would be a fun thing to do,” said coach Michael Fernandez.

Fernandez had the idea and talked about with Victor Lopez of the Ontario Fire Department, a former teammate of his at Chaffey College.

Lineman Cohl Cabral of Los Osos commits to Arizona State

Los Osos High School offensive lineman Cohl Cabral isn’t going to draw the recruiting process out any longer. He has made a verbal commitment to Arizona State, even before his senior season begins.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound offensive lineman had 14 offers from which to choose. He has visited Arizona State three times and also made trips to Washington State, Oregon State, Boise State and Utah. Arizona State was the first to offer.

Michigan, Oregon and USC were among the others

“I really liked the program, the players, the atmosphere, everything about it,” he said. “I thought it would be the place for me to be for the next four year.”

Cabral, a our-star recruit, is ranked as the nation’s No. 20 offensive
tackle and the No. 34 prospect in California in the 2016 class by 247Sports.com.

He played both offensive and defensive lines for the Grizzlies but was being recruited to play on offense.

Cabral is the third player to commit to coach Todd Graham’s next recruiting class, the second offensive lineman.

Arizona State has been high on his list all along. The school saw him at a satellite camp at Upland last summer and has pursued him ever since.

“I had time to get the visits done,” he said, of the groundwork that resulted in an early decision. “I’m glad the decision is made so I can concentrate on having a great senior season.”

He plans to major in exercise science.

Mark Mina named head girls’ volleyball coach at Claremont

Mark Mina has been named volleyball coach at Claremont, athletic director Rick Dutton confirmed.

Mina will be the third coach in as many years and inherits a good nucleus of players as the team’s top two players last year were freshmen in Emilee Rohrer and Kylie Robinson.

He is no unfamiliar with the program, having served as junior varsity coach in 2014. He also took over the varsity program on an interim basis late in the season when coach Jodi Postlmayr stepped down to take and athletic director position.

Claremont is coming off a 21-11 season that included a second-place finish in the Palomares league (8-2) behind Glendora.

“There definitely is some young talent so we should be pretty good for the next few years,” Mina said. “I enjoyed working with junior varsity team there and I’m familiar with the girls coming back so it should be a smooth transition.”

Mina was the head coach at Rim of the World in 2013. Before that he spent four years directing the program at Immaculate Heart. He has also directed the programs at Mayfield and La Salle.

He also serves as director of Los Angeles Volleyball Academy East which will be run out of Cal Poly Pomona.

Ganesha boys volleyball team looking to make playoff run

Joe Mariles has been coaching the boys volleyball team at Ganesha for 15 years. It hasn’t always been an easy task. The school hasn’t had great tradition in sports and boys volleyball is a sport where it can be hard to field a competitive team, especially given the demographic make up of the school.

But the Giants are making some noise and hoping for a win or two in the playoffs which begin tonight. Ganesha will host a first round Division 5 match against CAMS with first serve set for 7 p.m.

Ganesha is 22-4 overall, which includes a 12-0 mark in Miramonte League play. This is the school’s third league title, the others coming in 2011 and 2012.

The team has no year-round/club players, just a hard-working group of student-athletes who have found modest success in other sports and chemistry on the court.

Mariles is also the on-campus adviser for AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) so many of his athletes are students he has had come through that program.

“These kids all get along well,” he said. “They play other sports and they know each other from those or from AVID. The important thing is I really want them to have fun.”

Among the top players on the team is senior Jose Espinoza, an All-CIF selection in soccer, the sport in which Ganesha has had the most success. He leads the team in kills with 263.

The there is sophomore Jorge Barajas, the team’s top basketball player. Mariles says he’s the most athletic player and the real “X-factor.” He is third on the team in kills (118) and boasts a team-high 103 blocks.

Senior Santana Carbajal is the team’s setter.

It is always nice to win but Mariles uses athletics as a teaching tool and a vehicle through which life lessons can be learned. Kevin Martinez is second on the team in kills. He’s going to UCLA but won’t be playing sports. He’ll focus on being a student.

Defensive specialist Hugo Ortega is headed to USC.

“We want them to excel at the next level,” Mariles said. “It’s more about academics than anything else, because that’s something they’re going to carry with them the rest of their life.”
