Jurupa Hills coach Scott Cartzdafner said he was “more than positive” his team would see Citrus Valley in the CIF-SS Division 5 championship game in three weeks.
He said that after his team lost to defending Division 6 champ Citrus Valley 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh to give Citrus Valley the Mountain Valley League title on Thursday. That was two days after Jurupa Hills knocked off Citrus Valley 3-2 on a walk-off two-run homer.
Citrus Valley is ranked No. 1 in the division and a favorite to get back to the CIF-SS title game. But what about Jurupa Hills? The Spartans were ranked fifth entering this week.
A year ago, Citrus Valley won its final 21 games en route to the CIF title. In the final 20 of those games, 2 of the 3 closest games were 3-2 and 4-1 wins over Jurupa Hills. The 4-1 win came in the CIF semifinals. Jurupa Hills might’ve been the second-best team in the division last year, but because the Spartans tied for 2nd in league and went into the playoffs as the No. 3 team, they could end up on the same side of the bracket as Citrus Valley, hence meet in the semifinals.
This year, since Jurupa HIlls is the No. 2 team in the league, the Spartans will be on the opposite half of the bracket from No. 1 Citrus Valley. So they could meet in the finals. But will they?
Jurupa Hills’ Jackie Valadez hits the first pitch she sees for a walk-off two-run home run with two outs in the seventh inning to lift the Spartans to a 3-2 victory over Citrus Valley in a Mountain Valley League showdown on Tuesday. The teams are now tied for first place with one game remaining. They play again on Thursday to decide the league title.

In thrilling fashion, Kaiser won the Division 4 softball title 1-0 over Garden Grove in 11 innings when pinch runner Rebecca Garcia raced home on a passed ball with two outs in the bottom of the 11th.
The title is the first softball title for Kaiser.
Alyssa Dilay started the inning with an infield single. Garcia ran for her, went to second on a sacrifice bunt and to third on a grounder to second. A pitch then got away from catcher Jenavee Peres and Garcia raced home with the game-winner.
It was the longest championship game since Rancho Cucamonga’s Division I, 12-inning win in 2001.
Kaiser is tied with Garden Grove 0-0 through 5 innings at the CIF-SS Division 4 championship game on Friday night.
Each team has only 2 hits, but each has missed opportunities.
Kaiser had 2 on and no outs in the fifth and didn’t score and Garden Grove had 2 on and 2 outs in the top of the fifth and failed to score.
