Chino Hills High School Girls Soccer takes home game on the road

A total of 5 teams from the Baseline League made the CIF Girls Division 1 playoffs: Rancho Cucamonga, Chino Hills, Los Osos, Etiwanda and Upland.RCHS

The Baseline’s No. 3 team Los Osos is traveling on the road against Flintridge Sacred Heart while Etiwanda and Upland received at-large bids and will travel as well.

The Rancho Cucamonga Cougars and the Chino Hills Huskies are listed on the bracket as the host team, but a jersey violation will send the Huskies on the road to Long Beach Millikan.chhs

The violation was because of a “two-inch strip on the shoulder of our jerseys on Jan. 3 against Ayala,” said Huskies’ coach Andy Plascencia.

Rules such as the one about the jerseys became effective by the CIF at the start of the New Year.

“The referee (from the game against Ayala) reported it,” Plascencia said. “We thought it would just be a warning at first…it did creep back up on us.”

The team has since ordered new jerseys that comply with the new CIF rules.

Since the Huskies did not have an actual home field until the final two weeks of league play, Plascencia is not worried about having to travel to Long Beach despite still being considered the home team.

“It’s not a factor for us. We have traveled and played on the road all season,” he explained. “We usually would have to travel about 45 minutes for each game so an extra 15 minutes (to Long Beach) should not be a problem.”

Upland’s Jalen Moore commits to Oregon State

Strong safety Jalen Moore of Upland has committed to Oregon State. He indicated that on his Twitter Saturday night while on his visit to the Pac-12 school.

He was en route back to California today.

“The coaching staff really made me feel at home,” he said. “There is nothing here but school and football so there won’t be any distractions and I can stay focused.”

Moore, a 6-foot-1, 190-pounder, helped the Highlanders to a Baseline League title and overall mark of 10-3. It was his first year in California, having moved here from Denver, Col.

He had 52 tackles, 1 interception, 2 caused fumbles and a blocked field goal.

Moore had one other offer, that from South Dakota State but  the trip to Oregon state was his first “official” visit.

“I am thankful for this opportunity,” he said. “It just goes to show how fast things can happen.”

Moore is the second local to commit to Oregon State, the first being Pomona High School’s Shawn Wilson.

Upland football team could have eight transfers in fall

The Upland High School football program has attracted its share of transfers over the years, but it may reach new heights this season.

If all players who have transferred from other schools since last season are approved by the CIF-SS, the Highlanders could feature at least eight new faces in the fall.

That figure doesn’t include incoming freshman receiver Nathan Tilford, who received scholarship offers from USC and Arizona State while he was still in eighth grade.

“We work really hard at what we do and if people move in for whatever reason and we’re the benefactor, then I’m happy for that,” said Upland head coach Tim Salter, who is entering his 19th year. “We’re not out there recruiting kids, but I think we have one of the best programs around.”

Upland RB Payton ruled ineligible for 2013 due to athletically motivated transfer

San Dimas running back Jake Payton will be forced to sit out his senior season after a ruling today that his transfer to Upland was athletically motivated. The CIF-SS denied Payton’s transfer due to a violation of rule 510, according to its website.

forsaleThis is the second high profile football transfer in the Inland Valley to receive this ruling in the offseason. Payton can only hope to have more success in the appeals process than Diamond Bar transfer Antonio Hull. Originally, San Dimas planned not to challenge Payton’s transfer to Upland, but changed its tune this week.

“We had a change of heart, it’s a group decision,” Zernickow told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune on Monday. “My opinion is that you can’t say nothing if something happened.”
