San Bernardino County baseball all-stars beat Riverside, 5-2

Those who didn’t know Kenny Boardman before, saw him on Monday. When was the last home run you saw hit by a high schooler at San Manuel Stadium? I can’t remember. And this one was legit, out to left-center, not just inside the foul pole.

Robert Grande did a nice job of allowing several of the pitchers to hit in addition to pitch in the game.

Inland Empire softball all-stars lose to Orange County

Above, Yucaipa’s Annie Bakenhus talks about winning a CIF-SS title and playing in the all-star game.

It was a rough game for the Inland Empire all-star softball team on Wednesday night. Orange County won the game at Big League Dreams in Chino Hills 9-0, but while Orange County was mostly missing Mission Viejo slugger Alyssa Palomino, the Inland Empire was missing more.
The Inland Empire roster of players who couldn’t make it might’ve been better than the one that did make it: Yucaipa pitcher Brooke Bolinger (travel ball commitment), Los Osos catcher Paige Halstead (junior national team), Chino Hills infielder Tannon Snow (graduation). Assuming the Junior National schedule doesn’t change (that’s also why Palomino didn’t make it), hopefully in the future they can avoid other things like travel ball tournaments and graduations to get the best players. There’s no doubt the players who made it had a good time and played hard, but they were overmatched by some of the Orange County pitching.

Arroyo Valley hosting girls basketball all-star game on Saturday



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.

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

Unfair? San Bernardino County places only 10 on IE All-Star Football Team

It’s a little tougher to play in the all-star football game at Corona High School this year.
That’s because instead of it being a San Bernardino County vs. Riverside County game, it will be a team of Inland Empire All-Stars facing Orange County All-Stars on Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. in the OC vs. IE All-Star Classic.
On the 42-man Inland Empire roster, 10 players are from San Bernardino County, and no more than two on any of the county teams.
State champion Redlands East Valley has defensive back Isaiah Armstrong, who set the school record for interceptions, as well as linebacker Jakob Diaz.
San Gorgonio will represented by offensive lineman Julian Rodriguez and Nate Meadors, who played quarterback for the Spartans, but is listed as a wide receiver for the all-star game.
Chino Hills also has two players in offensive lineman Clay Garcelli and defensive lineman Trent Goens, as does Carter in defensive back Zamore Zigler and defensive lineman Kyon Clark.
Rancho Cucamonga (wide receiver Chase Stephens), Etiwanda (linebacker Khaylan Thomas) and Kaiser (offensive lineman Eric Villalobos) each placed one player on the team.
The team is coached by Corona Centennial coach Matt Logan and assisted by Riverside Poly coach Dennis Brown.

Did San Bernardino County get screwed?
Not really. Riverside County is better overall. And the 2 coaches are from Riverside County, so as is the case in all-star games, they pick more of the players they know.
