Chino Hills football standout commits to Northwestern

Chino Hills High School defensive standout Trent Goens has committed to Northwestern.

Goens registered 62 tackles for the Huskies last season. He was Most Valuable Defensive Player for the Sierra League and earned All-Inlands Valley honors from the Daily Bulletin.

Goens had nine Division I offers. He visited Northwestern over spring break earlier this month and had also been to Arizona. He will cancel a trip he had scheduled to Washington this weekend.

“It had everything on my checklist,” he said. “I liked the coaches and players. It’s a good academic school. It was a great fit.”

Goens said the recruiting process was stressful and he wanted to make a decision so he could better focus on his senior season.

He plans to major in economics and will be taking several advanced placement classes the coming season in preparation.

Battle for the Baseline coming up Saturday at Loan Mart Field

The annual Battle of the Baseline is coming up on Saturday with all six teams in action at Loan Mart Field.

The schedule – Glendora (10-4, 3-0) vs. Alta Loma (7-6, 0-4), 11 a.m.; Los Osos (4-7, 1-3) vs. Etiwanda (8-4, 2-1), 2 p.m.; Upland (13-1, 3-1) vs. Rancho Cucamonga (6-7, 2-2), 5 p.m.

The teams are so close geographically it always makes for a great competitive rivalry no matter who is playing who.

Most agree there is a long way to go with little decided this early. Los Osos has struggled uncharacteristically but the Grizzlies will likely still be there in the end.

Alta Loma looked solid in non-league play and was even ranked but has struggled since league play started.

But at this point no one is out of contention.

“There is still so many games to play,” Etiwanda coach Don Furnald says. “The team that wins could still have four or five losses. There is so much balance.”

Upland is ranked fifth in CIF Division 2 while Glendora is 10th, also in Division 2.

Charity basketball game this Saturday at Los Osos

The fight against cancer is personal for Los Osos High School boys basketball coach Dave Smith. Five years ago he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colo-Rectal and given 12-18 months to live.

Well he is now cancer free, and trying to help those afflicted by the disease.

He has started the Hoops for Hope charity event which will be held on Saturday at Los Osos High School. It will feature 10 teams, mostly from area fire departments. They’ll play in a double-elimination basketball tournament, the first game set for 10 a.m. and the final taking place about 5:30 p.m.

It’s a family event with music, a bounce house for kids and concessions also available.

Each team is paying $750. There is no “admission” charge but a suggested $10 donation at the door. The event has raised $90,000 in the previous four years so Smith expects the running total to easily eclipse six figures this year.

Proceeds go toward San Antonio Hospital Cancer Research Center and City of Hope as well as a third local designation.

The Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga and Chino fire departments have participated every year. Among the other entrants are San Bernardino County fire and San Antonio Hospital. Los Osos will also have a team of coaches participating.

Smith says he’d like to possibly expand the event in the future to include 12 teams. There was talk of having two sites if enough teams entered but Smith would prefer not to break it up into two.

He also started the event in honor of Chip Smith, a former Ontario firefighter who was undergoing treatment at the same time he was but wasn’t fortunate enough to survive. He passed away the night of the first tournament.
