Indian Springs earned first boys basketball win of the year

Before talking about Indian Springs’ 1st win of the season last week, I’d like to say that while I don’t root for teams, I hope every high school varsity team gets at least 1 win per season. Just a chance to taste victory. I’m not asking for every team to win exactly half of their games. I just hope that every team gets a chance to savor victory.

When you’re building a program from scratch, there are bound to be some bumps in the road.
The Indian Springs boys basketball team hopes those bumps are in the past.
Indian Springs earned hits first win of he season last Friday with a 66-54 San Andreas League win over San Gorgonio, improving to 1-16 on the season.

“It was tough early on,” coach Jamaal Cannon said. “We had the Bloomington Christian Tournament and we could’ve won two, if not all three games. We couldn’t get any breaks.
“Our two games leading up to (the win), our defense was getting a little bit better. (The win) was a huge relief. We know we can beat teams.”

Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly and UCLA’s Jim Mora visit with San Gorgonio’s Nate Meadors

Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly visits with San Gorgonio athlete Nate Meadors and his family.

San Gorgonio athlete Nate Meadors had a home visit from Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly.

Meadors, who played quarterback for the Spartans this season, is being recruited as a defensive back.
He entered 2014 without a single offer, but closed out the year with 14 offers, including Notre Dame, UCLA and Oregon.
Kelly was not the first coach that Meadors welcomed into his home. UCLA coach Jim Mora took a small trip to visit Meadors on Jan. 22.

He also played in the Inland Empire vs. Orange Country All-Star Game as an offensive player.
The Notre Dame football program seems to have its eye on San Bernardino County talent.
It was just last week that a member of the program has taken a visit to Carter High School to follow up with Lokeni Toailoa for the fifth time since offering him a scholarship.

Could Kyon Clark join Kenny Clark at UCLA?

While several high school athletes committed to colleges long ago, and others have been courted and are expected to make their decisions in the next week, there are other future college athletes who fall into different categories.
TX Body: One of those is Carter High nose guard Kyon Clark, who originally committed to Montana, but has since de-committed.

Kyon Clark

Carter coach Alex Pierce said that Clark changed his mind when Montana underwent a coaching chance as former coach Mick Delaney retired.
So, what’s next? Possibly UCLA, where Clark’s brother Kenny, the former Sun Defensive Player of the Year, was a standout sophomore defensive lineman last season.
According to rivals.com, Clark is scheduled to make a visit to UCLA this weekend although Pierce could not confirm that. Although there has been no official offer yet, UCLA is the only possibility out there for him other than Montana. Rivals has Clark listed as a three-star recruit.
“I think people are missing the boat on him,” Pierce said. “He’s been able to move really well with his weight. He’s really flexible. He can put his nose to his knee and he’s stronger than his brother at this age.”

REV state championship gear available

A little more than a month ago, Redlands East Valley’s football team won its Division II state championship.

REV state champ
Now, you don’t have to wait until next football season to buy your championship gear, you can order it now. Apparently, they will be available for pickup on February 13, available in red or black. Also available through the team’s web site are the Citrus Belt League champion gear, which I’m guessing is not quite as hot a seller as the state championship gear.

Latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings

The latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings. Yes, Fontana is still not in it. I was told by the Fontana coach last week, that because he doesn’t subscribe to socalsoccer.org, he’s not able to input results, so his resume (at least according to that site) doesn’t look very impressive.

My thought: It seems like a weak excuse. If you look, many of the leagues are missing games.
