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.

Arroyo Valley hosting girls basketball all-star game on Saturday

IMG_1427

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.

All-Star Girls Wrestling Match is Tonight

Tonight, April 7, at 6:30 pm at Charter Oak High in Covina, is a Dual-Meet all-star girls wrestling match pitting teams from the East vs. West, roughly divided by the 57 Freeway. I believe entrance is free; it is just an event designed to promote girls wrestling.

The West team is coached by Tom Cote, the Charter Oak coach who formerly coached at Kaiser, Los Osos, Chaffey, Montclair and other places I can’t think of right now.

The East is coached by Montclair girls coach Matt Furr. Here is the East Lineup:

101 – Shandrea Shelby – Corona
106 – Sugey Ceja – Corona
111 – Alyssa Aceval – San Jacinto 
116 – Vanesa Contreras – Yucca Valley
121 – Kimberly Espinoza – Chaffey
126 – Maryssa Monterrossa – Montclair
131 – Ashley Pofek – La Sierra
137 – McKenna Hutchison – Upland
143 – Jasmine Cordero – Tustin
150 – Anna Castro – Carter
160 – Sarah Rahlwes – Redlands
170 – Kendall Reusing – La Sierra
189 – Diana Perez – Hillcrest
235 – Melissa Lopez – Hillcrest

Head Coach – Matthew Furr – Montclair
Asst. Coach – Mario Estrada – Titan Mercury Wrestling Club
Asst. Coach – Roman Medina – Chaffey
Asst. Coach – Cecilia Ramirez – Montclair
Asst. Coach – Vanessa Nordstrom – Titan Mercury Wrestling Club

Redlands East Valley’s David Barela needs Tommy John surgery


REV left-hander David Barela pitching against Los Osos in the playoffs last year.

Redlands East Valley senior left-hander David Barela, a second-team all-Sun selection last season and who has signed a National Letter of Intent with New Mexico State, will undergo Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery on Friday, coach James Cordes said.
Barela went 8-1 with a 0.78 ERA last year and entered the season with 14 career wins, just seven away from the school career record. He threw for REV “only about 14 innings” in the fall because REV was looking at other pitchers.
When they returned from winter break in January, Barela’s arm didn’t feel right. It took a while for him to get insurance approval for an MRI, and in the meantime Barela didn’t pitch at all. They got the results of the MRI back a couple of weeks ago and Cordes said the results indicated that surgery and not rehab, was necessary.
Cordes said that New Mexico State still wants Barela and will likely redshirt him next year.
“It certainly bumps everyone up on the pitching chain. That’s why you work hard to develop eight or nine pitchers. On a personal note, it’s devastating for David,” Cordes said.
