Apple Valley football coach Frank Pulice resigns

IMG_0974

After 25 years coaching football at the school including the last 15 years as a head coach at Apple Valley High School, Frank Pulice has decided to call it quits. He told his team Tuesday.
“With all the stuff I’ve gone through (physically) in the last 10 years, I think it’s starting to effect me mentally,” Pulice said. “I”m getting physically and mentally wore out. I’m burned out. It’s time for me to go.”
Pulice, 48, a Covina High graduate, first came to Apple Valley as an assistant coach in 1990, he has been there the last 25 seasons as a coach.
He also spent a decade from 1992-2002 as head wrestling coach and is currently the boys golf coach, a position he will retain.
In 15 years as head coach, he compiled a 71-88 overall record, but was 59-49 in the last 10 years. He did not win any league titles, but made the playoffs eight times, including five of the last six years.

Arroyo Valley girls basketball rallies after death of coach’s mother

photo (10)Valerie Anderson

As we’re still finishing up with football and other fall sports, we haven’t done much with winter sports yet.
But this one deserves some mention now.
Arroyo Valley girls basketball coach Michael Anderson’s mother, Valerie Anderson, passed away two days before Thanksgiving at the age of 60.
You may remember that Anderson stepped down as coach of Rialto after the 2012-13 season because his mother had a stroke and he needed to be her caregiver. He took the job at Arroyo Valley because it was close enough to his home in San Bernardino.
Anderson says he feels the support of his team, which is off to a 4-1 start to the season.
“It was hard to bail out on them (players). We use it as a motivational tool. They all had an opportunity to know how her after I left Rialto. They saw her around in a wheelchair and me being her caregiver,” Anderson said.

Citrus Valley’s Claire Graves readies for Foot Locker Nationals


Claire Graves, above, talks after the 2013 Foot Locker West race

Citrus Valley sophomore Claire Graves still has one more race in her high school cross country season.
After finishing seventh at last Saturday’s Foot Locker West Regional at Mt. San Antonio College, Graves advanced to this Saturday’s Foot Locker National Championships at San Diego’s Balboa Park.
Last year, on a sloppy, wet day, she finished 21st at the West Regional, while this year, she finished the five kilometer course in seventh place. The top 10 advance.
“I wasn’t prepared to run in mud,” said of last year’s race. “My shoes weren’t proper for that.”
This year, with the weather more favorable, she focused on finishing in the top 10, rather than a time.
“I wasn’t worried about my time. Usually, I’m a front-runner, but I didn’t want to go out super-fast,” she said.
But, last week was on a course with which she was very familiar. This one will be new.
“I have friends who have run that course,” she said. “It’s fairly flat. I’m not too worried. I’m hoping to come in the top 15 and end the season on a good note.”
Other top county runners ran at Foot Locker West, including Sultana’s Stefani Gaskell, who was 22nd (19:12.4),
The Nike Nationals were also run last week, in Portland, Ore. and Big Bear’s Caleb Webb was third in 15:21, while Jurupa Hills was 10th, led by Devon Reed, who was 31st overall (15:54).

Pacific High football gets money from SoCal Honda


Mike Aragon, above, speaking after he was named head coach of Pacific in August.

Pacific High School football coach Mike Aragon put in his request essay and forgot about it.
After all, it was about five months ago, or even before he became the head coach.
But last week, he got a call from a representative from the Southern California Helpful Honda Dealers as part of their “random acts of helpfulness” program and was told he was being awarded a $2,500 gift card to a sporting goods store for equipment.
Turns out, it’s not just an ad campaign.
“I kind of thought I didn’t get it,” said Aragon after waiting several months. “I had to ask her to repeat herself and I just thanked her.”
While the school provides most of the equipment necessary to play, Aragon said several players can’t afford to buy basic things, such as cleats. He said he and another coach bought 12 pairs of cleats themselves for the team and a handful of others wore cleats that were “past their prime.”
He also hoped to buy game socks, and other things such as workout shorts and shirts. He said he planned on earmarking some of the money for specific needs, and keep some in reserve for other things as they arose.
“Of course, I want to make them earn it,” he said. “It’s one less thing out of my head, trying to raise money and get sponsors. A lot of people helped us out last year, and this gives them a little bit of a break.”
