Breaking the Citrus Belt League softball tie

Citrus Belt League bylaws

If you can read the above bylaws, it outlines how you break a tie in baseball and softball in the Citrus Belt League. In softball,. there will be either a two- or three-way tie for the fourth and final CIF-SS playoff spot, but either way, Redlands wins the tiebreaker.

Only one game remains, and that’s going on now, Citrus Valley vs. REV. As it is right now, Redlands and Cajon each have 7-7 league records tied for fourth, with Citrus Valley at 6-7. A Citrus Valley win over second place REV would make it a 3-way tie for fourth.

Since each of the 3 teams went 1-1 against each other, the next tie breaker is runs allowed vs. the other two teams. Here’s how it breaks down:

Redlands vs. Cajon 6 runs allowed, Redlands vs. Citrus Valley 5 runs allowed. Total: 11 runs allowed

Citrus Valley vs. Redlands 8 runs allowed, Citrus Valley vs. Cajon, 11 runs allowed. Total: 19 runs allowed

Cajon vs. Citrus Valley: 13 runs allowed, Cajon vs. Redlands 11 runs allowed. Total: 24 runs allowed.

So, whether it is a two-way tie or a 3-way tie, Redlands gets the last automatic berth.

Victor Valley’s Reggie Lawson is done pitching

Victor Valley senior pitcher/infielder Reggie Lawson’s pitching season is over.

According to a text sent by his coach, A.J. LeDay, Lawson is “done for (the) season.” LeDay didn’t elaborate as to why, but last week said Lawson was day-to-day.

Lawson, who signed with Arizona State, was ranked as the No. 26 draft prospect by Baseball America. According to maxpreps.com, the 6-foot-4, 190-pound right-hander last pitched April 5. He has continued to play infield in the absence of pitching.

This season, Lawson is 3-0 with a 1.20 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 35 innings. He is batting .469 with one home run, 13 runs scored and nine RBIs, but his draft prospects are primarily as a pitcher.

Of course many people speculate as to what the problem is. I don’t know, so I won’t toss out guesses.

Many think Lawson will be a first round pick in early June, but how will this news affect that? Regardless of the reason, scouts will want to know why Lawson stopped pitching. Is it serious or just precautionary? Will they get medical reports (if there are any)? Will he throw a side session just before the draft just to show scouts he’s worthy of a high draft pick?

All that remains to be seen. But it’s possible, if his draft stock falls, that the (temporary) loss for pro baseball will be Arizona State’s gain.

The Redlands East Valley girls 400-meter relay team of Azariyah Scott, Madelynn Gray, Arian Brown and Emerald Bowens held off Rancho Verde to win the relay in what Bowens said was a school-record time of 47.85 seconds.

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.

REV’s Jaelan Phillips names Top 5

Redlands East Valley’s Jaelan Phillips announced that he has narrowed his list of 19 college offers down to five with the announcement of his top choice to follow tomorrow at noon.
Phillip’s Top 5 includes four schools from the PAC-12 (Washington, Stanford, UCLA and USC) and Notre Dame being the fifth.
UCLA has been a dream school for Phillips and a program that has drawn the interest of several Inland Empire athletes, especially the last few years. 
It would be hard to rule out Stanford as a contender, a place Phillips could fit right in as a student-athlete seeing as how he holds a highly regarded grade point average at REV. Phillips made two trips to the University, one of which was for a junior day event on Feb. 27.
While five schools have reached the final round of the Phillips’ sweepstakes, it is the end of the road for some highly touted programs such as Alabama, LSU, Florida and Michigan.
