Standout Redlands East Valley quarterback/shortstop Tyler Shreve pleaded not guilty to assault charges at his arraignment Thursday according to this article by Jesse Gill of the Daily Facts.
Shreve is being charged for his role in an incident February 25 where he allegedly attacked REV baseball coach James Cordes after an argument which resulted in his removal from the Wildcat baseball team. Shreve was arrested at the school and withdrew from the school several days later.
His pretrial hearing is set to take place on May 27 according to the article. The University of Utah, who Shreve signed a letter of intent to play football will on National Signing Day, is waiting for the results of the trial before ruling on his scholarship status.
With its 11-1 victory over Pacific, the Colton High School baseball team won its first league title since 1995 according to head coach Mike Reh. The Yellowjackets (18-8 overall, 12-3 league) split with San Gorgonio, who won its second consecutive league title and will get the No. 1 seed by virtue of its 2-1 head-to-head advantage over Colton. The Spartans (22-4, 12-3) defeated San Bernardino 18-0 Thursday.
Cajon (17-8, 11-4) had a chance to make it a three-way split, but fell to Arroyo Valley 5-3 Thursday to pull into the No. 3 spot out of the SAL. Playoff seedings for Division 3 will be released Monday.

Another note from Fowler that I thought should be passed along…
Considering the amount of its graduates who play basketball for a living, the Etiwanda High School alumni basketball game on May 21 won’t exactly be full of players trying to capture their former glory.
Fresh off their NBA rookie seasons, New Orleans Hornets point guard Darren Collison of UCLA fame and Portland Trail Blazers power forward Jeff Pendergraph will headline a group of players that includes some who play professionally overseas.
Collison, who won a CIF championiship at Etiwanda with the Arizona State-bound Pendergraph in 2005 and led UCLA to three final four appearances in four seasons, thrived in the absence of injured Hornets point guard Chris Paul, averaging 19 points and 8.5 assists the last three months of this season.
The alumni game will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Etiwanda on May 21.
A few county teams survived the first round of CIF-SS boys volleyball play Tuesday and will be playing in the second round today, with three teams (Miller, Arrowhead Christian and Summit) hosting games.
Miller was the only Citrus Belt League team to survive the first round Tuesday, defeating Montebello in four games (21-25, 25-12, 25-22, 32-30) to notch the first playoff victory in school history. The Rebels will be tested tonight at 7 p.m. against Torrance Bishop Montgomery in Division 4 action.
ACA, the No. 4 seed in Division 5, will host Saddleback Valley Christian at 7 p.m. tonight after sweeping Gardena Serra in three games by the score of 25-15, 25-23, 25-23. San Andreas League champion Summit also advanced in D5 play by taking care of Glendale Adventist in routine fashion, sweeping it 25-10, 25-10, 25-13. The SkyHawks will host Bellflower St. John Bosco at 7 p.m.
Ontario Christian also advanced in the D5 playoffs with a four-game victory over Carson CAMS — 25-16, 25-11, 21-25, 25-21. The Knights will play at No. 2 seeded San Juan Capistrano St. Margaret’s at 5 p.m. today.

Tickets to the Clash can be purchased at all of the above schools or at Arrowhead Credit Union Park.
The countdown to the awarding of the 46th annual Ken Hubbs Award will start Monday, as the selection committee will pick the overall winner of the award from a group of nominees that have already been submitted by the eligible schools.
The individual school winners will be announced Friday, May 14 at Arrowhead Credit Union Park during the 66ers’ game with the Quakes while the overall winner will be honored Monday, May 17 at 6 p.m. at the Elks Club in San Bernardino.
