Chino Hills’ Tannon Snow breaks CIF single-season home run record

Tannon Snow, a University of Washington commit, went 5 for 5 with three home runs for the Chino Hills Huskies in the victory over St. Lucy’s, 22-7, on senior night.

Snow’s second home run broke the CIF Southern Section single-season home run record, according to Huskies head coach Mike Southworth.

Snow’s third home run increased her record and total on the season to 23 home runs.

The win also provided the Huskies sole possession of the Baseline League Championship for 2015.

“It was a pretty amazing day,” Southworth said.

Tannon’s sister, Taylon Snow contributed to the Huskies with a 3 for 6 performance as she scored two runs and brought in three. Kylie Michael went 3 for 4 for a three-run home run against the Regents.

Chino Hills will wrap up the season next week with games against Etiwanda and Los Osos.

“These next two games will be a big deal for us as we prepare for CIF,” Southworth said.

Damien, St. Lucy’s file federal lawsuits against CIF, commish to avoid parochial league

With 44 schools from which to choose, only three were removed from the Mt. SAC area this year. All three are Catholic affiliated.

This is the argument lawyers representing Damien and St. Lucy’s will utilize in a federal lawsuit they hope will prevent their clients’ athletic teams from being placed in leagues with parochial schools in the fall of 2014, according to San Gabriel Valley Tribune Staff Writer Aram Tolegian’s story. The decision was ostensibly based on competitive equity, something the schools’ lawyers find questionable when the obvious common thread is the schools’ religious affiliation.

The reasons cited for the lawsuits are one thing. The reasons Damien and St. Lucy’s would like to remain in their current arrangement is another.

Both are competitive in the Sierra League, but if forced to move in the fall of 2014, could land amongst a group of private schools with a reputation for a higher level of play in all sports. Apparently that level is high enough that the two schools – along with Westlake Village Oaks Christian and Ventura St. Bonaventure – are willing to take the CIF State, CIF-Southern Section and CIF-SS Commissioner Rob Wigod to court.

Etiwanda goes cold in state semifinal, loses rematch with Mater Dei

This time it was the Etiwanda boys basketball team with the No. 1 seed next to its name in the program. And it was two-time defending state champion Santa Ana Mater Dei that avenged a loss in the CIF-SS Division 1AA championship game two weeks earlier with a 60-37 win over the Eagles in the CIF State Southern California regional final Saturday night at Citizens Business Bank Arena.

Etiwanda’s hot shooting was a huge factor in staking the Eagles to a 17-point fourth quarter lead in an eventual three-point victory over then No. 1 seed Mater Dei March 2 for the CIF-SS title.

The Eagles went cold Saturday night.

VIDEO: Los Osos boys water polo coach on 13-5 CIF-SS semifinal win

It was something reserved for an overmatched opponent in September, but the Los Osos High School boys water polo team saved it for mid-November.

The Grizzlies reeled off 10 consecutive second-half goals to make a one-goal deficit a distant memory on their way to a 13-5 win over Arroyo Grande on Wednesday in the CIF-SS Division 4 semifinals at Irvine High. The victory landed second-seeded Los Osos (22-8) in its third CIF final in five years, a run the Grizzlies would love to bookend with championships when Saturday’s meeting arrives with No. 1 seed Santa Maria Righetti, an 18-17 overtime winner in its semifinal.
