McClain signs with Weber State

Redlands kicker/punter Shaun McClain, an all-CIF and all-Sun performer, has signed with Weber State after an official visit to the Ogden, Utah campus this past weekend according to his parents and Redlands assistant coach Kevin Haugh.

McClain chose Weber State over Montana State, who he had temporarily committed to around National Signing Day. He is the fourth Terrier to sign a letter of intent with a Division I school, joining linebacker Jordan Thomas (San Diego State), offensive lineman Justin Corrales (Bryant University) and linebacker Cole Gridley (Valparaiso).

San Bernardino County wrestlers will be taking over Oxnard

Or at least, it seems that way.
Five different leagues (De Anza, Desert Sky, Mojave River, Mt. Baldy and Sunkist) with San Bernardino County schools will be sending wrestlers to Oxnard Pacifica High for the CIF-SS Northern Division individual championships on Friday and Saturday.

Four of those leagues: Desert Sky, Mojave River, Mt. Baldy and Sunkist all have wrestlers who are seeded among the top five in their weight class. The top five in each weight class advance to the CIF-SS Masters Meet next week.

Of the 70 wrestlers in the division seeded in the top five, 37 are from San Bernardino County.
Montclair leads county schools with top five seeds, (seven), followed by Bloomington and Colony (five), Sultana (four), Barstow, Victor Valley and Hesperia (three), Kaiser (two), Ontario (two), and one each for Granite Hills, Apple Valley and Rim of the World.

Six of the 14 top-seeded wrestlers in the division are also from the county: Barstow’s Sean Silva (112), Hesperia’s Ivan Pinto (125), Bloomington’s Phillip Hendrix (130), Montclair’s Joseph Martinez (135), Hesperia’s Chris Sloat (160) and Sultana’s Manuel Mazariegos (heavyweight).

SAL, MRL to face off Thursday in boys soccer

An interesting twist in the Division 5 boys soccer playoffs presents itself today, as the Mojave River League and San Andreas League face off in three separate first-round games.

Two of the games, Pacific at D5 No. 2-seed Hesperia and San Gorgonio at Serrano, will take place in the High Desert while Apple Valley will travel down the hill to face SAL champion Cajon. Both Pacific and Apple Valley helped create this unusual triumvirate by winning their wild-card games Tuesday, as Pacific defeated visited Monrovia 2-1 while the Sun Devils went on the road to beat Salton City West Shores 3-1.

It’s almost similar to college bowl season, as two of the more notable league in the area get to butt heads in postseason play – definitely providing a juicy little subplot to the boys soccer playoffs.

Colton job search, recruiting moving along

The search for Colton’s next football coach is close to reaching its next stage according to Yellowjackets athletic director Harold Strauss. The job, which opened at the end of January, will say open until Tuesday, with interviews set to take place shortly after.

“It’s going well,” Strauss said. “I wasn’t sure how much interest we’d get because of the economy, but we have a good list going. We have 2 or 3 out-of-staters — one from South Carolina and a couple more from the East Coast — which is surprising.”

Along with the coaching position, Strauss indicated that senior cornerback Jonathan Mack will likely take official visits to Southern Miss and South Dakota State. Mack, who committed to UNLV, has not signed yet, as the Rebels are looking to see if scholarship room can be cleared for him. In the interim, Mack is pursuing other options.

Also, junior linebacker Rodney Hardrick is receiving heavy interest from USC, Oregon and Boise State according to Strauss, with the Trojans expected to offer a scholarship at their junior day later this month.
