Summit’s Jennifer Sandoval signs with San Jose State

Jennifer Sandoval liked the sport first, then realized it could be the means to an end.
Sandoval, the standout cross country and track and field runner, signed Friday with San Jose State.
“I felt like it was the right fit for me because … I got along well with the team,” she said. “I saw how their atmosphere was and their work ethic, and I really liked that.”
Sandoval was the Daily Bulletin runner of the year and a first-team runner for The Sun last cross country season when she finished fourth overall in Division II at the CIF State Championships at Woodward Park in Fresno. She completed the course with a time of 17 minutes, 32.8 seconds.
Sandoval said she had several scholarship offers, but wanted a full scholarship, which many of them were not willing to give. In the end, it was between San Jose State and Azusa Pacific.
“I know I’m going to need to get faster, I want to run three miles in the 16s,” she said. “So I’ll be OK when I run the longer distances in college.”
Not only does she expect to run cross country for the Spartans, she said she said in track she could run the 5,000 meter, 10,000 meter and/or 3,000 meter steeplechase.

Quarterback Cade Sparks has come into his own while leading Summit High School during an undefeated football season after the first eight games on the schedule.

Sparks has thrown for over 1,900 yards and 32 touchdowns this season with an offense loaded with talented play makers.

“He has probably made an audible on 10 of those 32 touchdown passes,” said Nick Matheny, coach of the Skyhawks. “He just remains cool, calm and collected.”

Sparks believes the chemistry between his receivers and himself are what allows for the offensive audibles be to successful.

“I attribute my confidence totally to my receivers. We have worked hours on end,” Sparks said. “I know that if I give them an audible they will make a play. All I need to do is put the ball where it needs to be.”

Sparks not only shows leadership on the field but in the classroom. He maintains a 3.9 GPA during the football season.

“I discipline myself in my studies. I am not an ‘athlete student,'” Sparks said. “My studies come first, I hold myself to a high standard. I want to be as successful as I can be in all aspects of my life.”

Summit will look to continue its winning streak when the Skyhawks play Kaiser at 7 p.m. Friday in Sunkist League action. The game will be held at A.B. Miller High School.

Could Summit-Norte Vista join Serrano-Norco as broadcast games?

Fox Sports West’s Prep Zone broadcasts several CIF Southern Section football games every week on the internet, as well as one on TV on Prime Ticket or Fox Sports West.
No San Bernardino County teams are scheduled to be on a broadcast the next two weeks, but on Oct. 2, two such games are on the schedule.
One game is Serrano at Norco. The other game is Summit at Riverside Norte Vista. The problem is, Summit-Norte Vista is scheduled for Thursday that week because Riverside La Sierra, which also uses Norte Vista’s field, is at home on Friday.
Matheny said Summit had been contacted about moving the game to Friday, but he said that Oct. 2 is La Sierra’s homecoming and as of Sept. 16, that change had not been made. However, Fox Sports West lists the game on its web site for Friday.

Summit football: has offense played enough? Is defensive line too injured?

How efficient is too efficient?
Summit coach Nick Matheny doesn’t know and he doesn’t want to find out.
Summit’s offense was incredibly efficient in last week’s 49-28 win over Miller.
“We only ran 24 offensive plays,” Matheny said. “I don’t know if we’re prepared for this week.”
Summit hosts Alta Loma at Miller High on Friday.
While Miller was grinding out the clock on the ground, Summit was scoring quickly. Matheny said the SkyHawks scored touchdowns on all three of their first-half possessions and led 21-0 at halftime.
In the second half, Miller racked up more yards on the ground. Matheny said a big reason was that he rested several defensive players, and that led to Miller’s 28-point second half.
“It’s more of a health thing and we have guys at new positions,” Matheny said. “We have to improve, but last week, defense took two plays off then was back on the field.”
By contrast, Miller ran 61 offensive plays, 56 on the ground.

The SkyHawks need to weather the storm on the defensive line for the moment.
Three defensive linemen are out or won’t be at 100 percent. Defensive end Robert Villagomez is out with a knee strain and probably will miss this week, as well. Defensive tackle Ramon Licea has been out with a concussion and is now getting cleared to come back, but won’t be available this week. And defensive tackle/nose guard Raul Diaz has an ankle injury that leaves him questionable.
If all goes well, they should be healthy in a couple of weeks, and then they’ll get even more help.
Senior defensive tackle Juan Luna, who broke his arm last year in Week 5 against Temecula Great Oak, wasn’t expected to play this year. But Matheny said Luna returned to the team after convincing his parents to let him play.
Luna has not had the required 10 days of practice first, so he likely wouldn’t play until Week 5 against Riverside Norte Vista, at the earliest.

Etiwanda and Summit football will have more at stake in rivalry

Etiwanda and Summit High Schools are separated by just 3.53 miles. So it only makes sense that the Eagles and SkyHawks play for more than just bragging rights.

Starting this year they will. All the details are being ironed out but the Sept. 4 game will be called the “Fight for 15,” or some variation thereof. It is in reference to the fact that the two are opposite sides of that particular freeway.

Etiwanda coach Kevin Davis, who came over after two years as offensive coordinator at Colony, graduated from Etiwanda in 1997. He also previously served as assistant there and remembers talk about establishing such a game back then.

So one of the first things he did upon getting the head job was calling Summit counterpart Nick Matheny and asking his opinion on the matter. As expected, Matheny was on board. It didn’t take much to rally support for the idea from the administration at both schools.

Summit uses Miller as its home field and Etiwanda has used Miller as its home field when playing Fontana schools, so the game will be played there.

“I took it to my guys and they really loved the idea,” Davis said. “The schools are so close the kids all know each other. Everyone loves rivalry games so why not do it?”

Last year the teams played to a 6-6 tie, the game cut short prematurely by a power failure early in the fourth quarter.

“After that game it seemed like the perfect time to start it,” Davis said.

“Last year I surprised at just how big that game was,” Matheny said. “It was a great atmosphere. The kids all know each other and the schools are close so it is a game we should keep playing.”

It will be the second game of the season for Etiwanda which opens the season against Norco on Aug. 28. It will be the opener for Summit which plays a scrimmage against Jurupa Valley, also on Aug. 28.
