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.

CIF-SS GIRLS BASKETBALL RANKINGS

Before last week, Cajon girls coach Mark Lehman was lamenting the fact his team shouldn’t be in the Open Division. So his team loses to a very good Eisenhower team (albeit one that wasn’t in the Open Division watch list), and what happens? Eisenhower, with only 1 loss, is not in the Open Division watch list, but Cajon remains on the watch list even though the Cowgirls dropped in the 1A rankings. I guess Ike will have to beat Cajon for a second time for voters to really take notice.

VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Inland Empire routs Orange County 69-16 in all-star football

Although IE defense was not was just as good as the offense in a 69-16 win over Orange County on Saturday. OC managed barely over 100 yards of total offense. Of OC’s 16 points, only 3 of them were from the OC offense: as field goal on their opening drive. Since then, essentially nothing. 13 of the points came from OC’s defense and special teams.

Of the 9 IE TDs, San Bernardino County represented well. 1 was on a pass from San Gorgonio’s Nate Meadors, another was scored by Cajon’s Armani Green. Chino Hills’ Trent Goens also wreaked havoc, getting pressure on the OC quarterbacks.

Update on Darrion Willies’ injury + Rim-Breaking Highlight

It was reported earlier in the week that the basketball career of Summit High senior Darrion Willies may be done due to a spine ailment.

According to Willies, he believes he can return to the court to continue his basketball career following a second opinion with a sports medicine doctor.

“The doctor called me (Jan. 22) after reviewing my x-rays,” Willies said. “He assured me that with some therapy he could get me back on the court.”

The big question surrounding his return to a basketball court, is a matter of when if at all?

“I am hoping by this season but however much time I need to fully recover,” he explained. “The doctor said to rest for a couple of weeks then after a check up he will decide on how therapy will go.”

Willies will still try to make it to Summit’s games to support his teammates.

The team has gone 2-0 in Willies’ absences with victories over league-rivals, Colton and Fontana.

Chris Ybarra steps down as Aquinas football coach, successor named

Aquinas football coach Chris Ybarra has stepped down, and assistant coach Jordan Brusig has been named his successor.

“The future is bright. There’s a lot of returning players as well as good athletes who will work hard. It’s going to be just like every other year, where our players will work hard in the offseason to prepare for the upcoming season. It’s going to be positive,” said Ybarra in the press release.
Ybarra said Brusig, who graduated from Aquinas in 2005 after playing for former head coach Josh Henderson, has been his assistant head coach/defensive coordinator the three years that Ybarra was the head coach. Ybarra was 14-16-1 as Aquinas’ head coach, making one playoff appearance in 2012. He will continue as the school’s athletic director and softball coach.photo (3) (1)

“I’m glad that I was the one that they picked to take over this job,” said Brusig in the press release. “…One of my biggest hopes for next season is to restore our winning ways, as well as the tradition and pride in Aquinas as a school and in the football program.”
When Ybarra took over as football coach, he did keeping in mind that he would find a successor.
“I wanted to keep continuity in the program,” Ybarra said. “Then find someone who could take over. I feel he (Brusig) is ready.”

My take: While I don’t know Jordan Brusig, I know Chris Ybarra and he had a lot on his plate. Not only was he head football coach, head softball coach, and athletic director, but he also ran a Saturday league for the Archdiocese. And he’s got 2 daughters at the school. So having someone who can devote more of his time to the football program will be good for the Aquinas football program, and for Chris Ybarra.

Chino Hills boys basketball will forfeit 9 wins

From Staff Writer Michelle Gardner:

Confirmation today that Chino Hills boys basketball will be forfeiting 9 games.

Here is the word from school district spokesman Julie Gobin:

“It has come to our knowledge that a student-athlete participated in CIF competition despite being scholastically ineligible. Therefore, administrators at Chino Hills HS have chosen to self-report to CIF and to forfeit the 11 games in which the student participated. These forfeitures do not affect the wins achieved at the 2015 Bass Pro Shops Tournament of Champions this past weekend in Springfield, Missouri. Chino Hills High School has implemented a new system to ensure this does not occur again.”
Julie Gobin, communications director for CVUSD

The Huskies were 12-4 on the court and 2-1 in Baseline League play after a loss to Damien last night.
Representatives from Upland and Rancho Cucamonga say they have been notified of forfeits that included games against their teams, both of which Huskies won on the court.
So Chino Hills is officially 0-3 in the Baseline, heading into game on Friday vs. Etiwanda. And that will be tough one.
“This definitely changes things,” says Rancho Cucamonga coach Bill Burke, whose team is now 16-4 overall and 2-1 in Baseline. “It really does open the door for us, maybe even Upland.”
Upland Athletic Director John McNally said his school had been notified it was getting a win via the forfeit as well.
Of the 11 games the ineligible student participated in, nine were wins. So the Huskies are 3-13 overall, 0-3 in league.
