After nearly six months of waiting, redrafting job ads and indecision, Colton High School decided that it was best to not mess with a good thing.
The Yellowjackets selected from within the Colton football family to replace Harold Strauss Thursday, as it hired longtime assistant coach Rick Bray. Bray, who has been an assistant at Colton for 21 of the past 25 years, including the entirety of Strauss’ tenure, was approved at Thursday’s Colton Unified School District school board meeting.

The Arrowhead Christian boys volleyball team may have fallen short in its quest for its first-even CIF-SS championship this past Saturday, but the season isn’t over for the Eagles, who are taking part in the CIF-State Southern California Regional boys volleyball tournament this week.
The Eagles, seeded No. 5 in Division III, will play at top-seeded Laguna Beach tonight at 7 p.m in the regional semifinals. Arrowhead Christian advanced by defeating No. 4-seeded Los Angeles Foshay Learning Center 25-15, 25-18, 25-17 in the quarterfinals Tuesday.
Should ACA pull the upset against Laguna Beach, which won the CIF-SS Division 2 championship, it would be matched up with the winner of the semifinal between San Juan Capistrano St. Margaret’s — which defeated ACA in the CIF-SS title game — and Solana Beach Santa Fe Christian.
