Palm Desert 10, San Marino 8 Division V
La Salle 11, Cate 7
My thoughts: There was a lot of focus on San Marino’s No. 1 singles player Daniel Weingarten, who didn’t play because of an amateur tournament. Question: Did he do the right thing by playing in a higher-caliber tournament? Continue reading →
With spring conditioning going on, it’s time to start laying odds on who will be the teams to watch, and who might be a sleeper.
My opinion: I think San Gabriel and La Salle are definitely teams to keep an eye on. Both have solid quarterbacks returning. Both have receiver issues to deal with.
Muir has a good quarterback with speed galore at receiver. Could this team be more pass-happy than last year with Youngblood? Arcadia has Golper, but who’s going to fill the void left by the departure of Walker and Amhaz? Monrovia has Marquise Williams returning and that’s a major plus. Will Pasadena find a way to fill massive voids? Same with Blair and Alhambra. Will Flintridge Prep, Maranatha and Rio Hondo Prep be factors in the small-school circuit?
San Marino and Maranatha are the lone survivors after Tuesday’s second round.

The Mustangs will appear in one of the top summer passing tournaments when they participate in the seventh annual Saugus Under the Lights passing tournament June 20 and 21 at Central Park in Saugus.
Muir is in Pool A with Saugus, Eastside and Taft. The Mustangs will face Saugus at 7 p.m., Taft at 8 p.m. and Eastside at 9 p.m.
Among the 24-team field, Hart, Valencia, Canyon, Long Beach Poly, Westlake, Oaks Christian and Alemany.
Saturday’s action will go from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. My suggestion: If the snack bar is the same as in the past, get the tri-tip.
Muir will also be in the Claremont and San Bernardino tournaments.
Question: What are some of the top tournaments the area teams will be playing in?
