Redlands’ Skie Munoz recorded 10 strikeouts while pitching a 7-inning complete game no hitter against Carter High, 4-0, on May 6.
There was some physical play around the goals, but not enough to keep Canyon Country Canyon from getting too many clean looks and scoring four unanswered goals in the second half for a 4-2 win over Redlands on Thursday. Check out my highlights above of 4 of the 6 goals in the game.
Redlands High coach Jennifer Classen talks after the loss.
Redlands’ 6-foot-11 senior water polo/volleyball player, Cal Mende, has signed his National Letter of Intent for volleyball, to Penn State. Above, he talks about playing water polo.
From the Penn State media release:
“Mende is a two-sport athlete, playing both volleyball and water polo. Coached by Mark Mina, Mende plays club volleyball for Oasis VBC and serves as the goalie on the water polo squad at Redlands. Mende was recently honored as one of four recipients of the Redlands Unified School District (RUSD) Outstanding Student Athlete awards.
Coach Pavlik on Mende: “Cal gives us a blend of size, skill and intelligence. As a left handed opposite, I think he’ll be able to elevate his game in order to provide what’s needed at this level of play. Coming in as a multi-sport athlete will also serve him well during his career here.”
