Alisha Edwards of Redlands High School verbally committed to UCLA track and field program following her official visit over the weekend.
“UCLA not only has a stellar academic program but the team is equally amazing,” Edwards said. “The members of the track team made me feel so welcomed and they are just a genuine group of people. The coaching staff is great and I felt a great vibe as soon as I arrived (on campus).”
Despite competing in other events as a member of the RHS Terriers’ track & field program, she plans to only compete as a high jumper.

But before she can wear the blue and gold, she will represent the Terriers for her senior season.
“My goal (for my senior) season is to progress mentally and physically as an athlete,” she said. “I am definitely looking to reach my personal record in the high jump and repeat at CIF. My number one goal is state.”
With a personal record of 5 foot 8 inches, Edwards is no stranger to CIF and the competitive journey that comes with reaching the event. She was a member of the back-to-back CIF Southern Section Division 2 championship teams.
While she finished second at CIF-SS in 2015, she earned an individual high jump title in 2014.
Doctors were able to close up the abdomen of Redlands football coach Mike Mauger Tuesday night, according to the team’s Facebook page.
The update also stated that the odds of survival have increased and the removal of the breathing tube will be the next part of the recovery process for Mauger.
“So thankful for the Lord’s blessings and for all of your prayers,” Mike’s wife Robin is quoted as saying in the update. “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
Mauger, who has been a member of the Redlands High community for 25-years, has been in the hospital for 14 days after he was rushed to the hospital on June 3 from the high school for emergency aorta surgery.
At 8:12 p.m. Jim Walker tweeted an update on the condition of Mauger.
He stated that Mauger was out of surgery, which took over three hours as an aorta aneurysm needed to be repaired with a stint. He also mentioned that the linebacker coach is listed in critical condition.
June 4 (8:54 p.m.) UPDATE:
Mauger has been moved to cardiac care unit and placed in induced coma, according to Walker, who tweeted the update. He also stated that more surgery may be needed for Mauger tomorrow.
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.
