Yucaipa’s Jared Davila finally makes his season debut

Yucaipa’s Jared Davila, one of the top returning pitchers in the area, finally made his season debut on Tuesday after a lengthy rehabilitation from an elbow injury.
Davila pitched a shutout inning of relief on Tuesday in a win vs. Citrus Valley, allowing one hit and striking out one.
“He’s finally getting in there,” Yucaipa coach Jeff Stout said. “He’s probably 85-90 percent. His velocity is in the low-mid 80s.”
A year ago, Davila went 7-1 with a 0.97 ERA in 12 appearances including 10 starts. Stout said that Davila will be limited to an inning or two out of the bullpen, partially because Yucaipa is deep with pitching.

Bloomington on verge of getting new football coach approved

With delays due to spring break, Bloomington appears on the verge of naming its new head football coach.
The Colton district board agenda for Thursday lists Brian W. Kidd as the selection. The agenda also lists him as a walk-on and a new hire.

At this time, it is not known whether it is the same Brian Kidd who used to be the head coach at Carter, most recently in 2007.
In addition, the agenda lists that Ryan Smalls will return as Grand Terrace coach for a second season. Smalls was the Titans’ coach last year, but his position was opened up after the season because he is not a teacher at the school.

Above, is the flyer for Saturday’s all-star girls basketball game at Arroyo Valley Coach Michael Anderson will hold his second Best of the Best Girls All-Star Basketball Game on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Arroyo Valley. It’s a game he started when he was at Rialto.

I hope not all of these players show up, because it will be difficult to get that many players playing time in the game.

The North team will be coached by Bloomington Christian coach Dawnesha Buckner, and the preliminary roster included 20 players from San Bernardino County, including from Bloomington Christian, Arroyo Valley, Jurupa Hills, San Gorgonio, Colony, Grand Terrace, Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino, Summit and Carter. The team also has players from Ganesha and Pico Rivera El Rancho on the squad.
The South team is largely from Riverside County, but also includes Chino Hills players.

Caleb Webb breaks Ryan Hall’s Big Bear High School record


Big Bear’s Caleb Webb

Big Bear’s Caleb Webb, the Sun’s Cross Country runner of the year, has erased one of Big Bear’s legendary runners from the record books. Webb ran the 3200 meters in the invitational race at the Arcadia Invitational on Saturday and ran a time of 8:52.17, incredibly not good enough to win. It only placed him third, but only .27 of a second behind the winner. He was the top Californian in the race and in broke the school record in that race, held by legendary Ryan Hall. Hall’s best time was 8:55.
