Football league predictions, then and now

OK, here we go, as all the remaining football leagues in the area start league play this week.

I will revisit my predictions in all the leagues. I predicted at the beginning of the season, and revising my predictions from what I know after 5 games.

AMBASSADOR LEAGUE
Before the season prediction
1. Ontario Chrisitan, 2. Aquinas, 3. LInfield Christian, 4. Calvary Murrieta, 5. Western Christian, 6. Arrowhead Christian.
Prediction now
1. Ontario Christian, 2. Western Christian, 3. Arrowhead Christian, 4. LInfield Christian, 5. Aquinas, 6. Calvary Murrieta.
Why the change: Western and ACA are better than expected, both at 5-0, but I don’t think they can knock off the experience of Ontario Christian.
BASELINE LEAGUE

All-Sunkist League girls basketball team: Kaiser’s Dodson MVP

Winning the first league championship in school history doesn’t entirely encapsulate the depth of the Kaiser girls basketball team’s accomplishment. The Cats ended defending CIF champion Summit’s 63-game win streak in the Sunkist League. In fact, Summit had never lost a league game until this season.

Accordingly, it’s not surprising that Kaiser team swept the All-Sunkist League awards. It’s hard to say enough about the feats Kaiser pulled off in 2012-13, but this list is a start.

MVP – Aliyah Dodson, Kaiser
Coach of the Year – Denise Sinohui, Kaiser

FIRST TEAM
Jasmine Soto (Kaiser)
Paige Harder (Kaiser)
Jordyn Buffum (Kaiser)

Sunkist League preview and predictions

By Clay Fowler Staff Writer
The resumes in the new Sunkist League include a 2011 CIF championship, a 2010 CIF championship, 11 consecutive league titles and even a mythical national championship.
There is no shortage of winning pedigree, but there are only so many wins to go around now that Colton, Fontana and Grand Terrace have joined Summit, Kaiser and Bloomington this year.

Releaguing gives Cajon, Fohi, Colton new homes

There weren’t many surprises at today’s Citrus Belt Area releaguing meeting this morning at Norte Vista High School, as Cajon moved from the San Andreas League to the Citrus Belt League while Fontana and Colton were placed in the Sunkist League, moving from the CBL and the SAL, respectively.

These moves were part of Proposal 8, which was drafted by Moreno Valley High School and beat out 15 other proposals. It did in interesting fashion, as it received 60 votes during the eighth round of voting, beating out four other proposals that had 41 votes each. Due to the Citrus Belt Area’s bylaws, all of the other proposals were eliminated, as any proposal in last or tied for last automatically gets the boot.

As far as the other leagues go, expect an appeal from Vista del Lago HS. The Ravens’ athletic director, Kevin Ferguson, was the only athletic director or principal to reject the proposal, as the Ravens were placed in an Inland Valley League that got tougher than the one they were asking for relief from, as former Big VIII schools Riverside North and Riverside Poly joined the league. Vista del Lago can appeal to the CIF-SS offices if it chooses.

Summit reaching for new heights

The building process from an overmatched team of freshman and sophomores to a championship-level force has been a gradual one for Summit coach Tony Barile. But as Summit gets ready for its fifth season fresh off an upset of No. 1 seeded Citrus Hill in the first round of last year’s Eastern Division playoffs, Barile sees one thing that the SkyHawks need to do to reach the next level.

“We needed to get stronger,” Barile said. “The reason we have lot to Palm Springs the last two years in the playoffs was because we weren’t strong enough and we wore down in the fourth quarter. That’s the one thing we’ve been doing this summer – hitting the weight room and getting stronger. We want to be able to outlast our opponents.”

Strength is important to the SkyHawks because they have the speed and skill necessary to do damage with a little bit of open space. Athletes dot the Summit roster throughout, led by senior quarterback Devon Blackmon.
