Never seen Monrovia with a more dominating performance than last night at San Dimas High. Several parents sitting in front of us kept saying Monrovia only had Nick Bueno, but it wouldn’t take long to find out that the Wildcats truly are loaded with depth, from Jay Henderson and Christian Blanco to Derrick Johnson, Anthony Kraft and Mason Bryant, who was a beast making seamless transition from offense to defense.
Some of you were concerned about not enough seating at Monrovia for next week’s CIF-SS Mid-Valley Division championship game against Whittier Christian. So, I went to the source and got some answers from one of the area’s best principals and big sports fan, Darvin Jackson.
Jackson said the school’s exploring options to add bleachers and increase parking. Jackson said the bleachers may be added at each end zone, but they will have to talk with the company that installed Monrovia’s synthetic track and find out if adding bleachers on it would void the school’s warranty.
Monrovia’s home side, which holds 2,500, saw only one sellout this season, which was during the Wildcats’ homecoming game. Jackson said the school that insted the visiting stands has in the past installed bleachers on rubber track, adding that it’s caused no damage.
Jackson also said the school is negotiating additional parking at Tom’s Burgers on Foothill and Madison Ave. They’re also talking with other local joints about using their parking space, each lot housing 30-40 cars. They are also talking to CVS about using their lot, and, if so, will bus fans from the lot to the stadium.
Some of you were concerned, but as you can see Monrovia’s one step ahead trying to make it easy for you all.
