San Gorgonio High School has released the names of the five people it will be inducting into its Athletic Hall of Fame. Leading off the list of inductees, who will be honored October 14-15, is former water polo player, swimmer and badminton player Tim Harris. Harris, a 1982 graduate, is a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Air Force and flew a C-17A Globemaster III over the area as part of the recent Independence Day festivities.
Other inductees include 1977 graduate Tim Miner (baseball), 1985 graduate Durell Jones (football, track and field), 2000 graduate Celeste Parrish (track, cross country, softball) and 2001 graduate Royce Merryman (water polo, swimming).
Chino will be playing San Dimas in the finals of its tournament on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Chino High School, the last of four games that will be played on the final day of the tournament. Admission to each game, which will be held in three-hour intervals at 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., is $3.
As I alluded to in my picks yesterday, the site of tomorrow’s East Valley Division playoff game between Linfield Christian and Big Bear has been moved to Lucerne Valley High School. It was moved from the original site of Big Bear Middle School because of the threat of significant snow and high winds.
“Lucerne Valley has a permanent press box and we don’t, so we decided to make the change,” Big Bear coach/athletic director Dave Griffiths said. “We use scissor lifts and with the winds of 50-60 mph which may come, we didn’t want to take that risk. Plus, we didn’t want Linfield to be stuck up here because their buses aren’t meant for snow at all.”
The 1 p.m. time for the game remains as originally scheduled.
