San Gorgonio’s Wesley Hill flips college choice to Fresno State

Uploaded 8-12-14 033

It’s amazing that it took this long for San Gorgonio’s Wesley Hill (who just graduated this spring) to get a concrete offer. Now he’s had a second, and changed his commitment. Congrats to him.
Initially, he appeared to find his college home, making a verbal commitment to Texas-El Paso less than three weeks ago.
Apparently as soon as that happened, Fresno State increased its pursuit of Hill and now Hill has changed his mind and will be going to Fresno State.
“I think that (Fresno State) is really where he wanted to go,” San Gorgonio coach Ron Gueringer said. “And I think part of it is that UTEP wanted him to play linebacker. Fresno State wants him to play running back, which is what he wants to do.”
UNLV, Montana state and Washington State were among the schools that had been talking to Hill.
Last year, Hill rushed for 760 yards and nine touchdowns, while also catching 12 passes and scoring three more touchdowns.
On defense, he had 52 total tackles, including 10 for loss and had three sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery.

REV’s Victoria Bustamante lands softball offer

Football is no longer the only program at Redlands East Valley to have a player receive a scholarship offer this week as softball player Victoria Bustamante has stated that she received an offer from La Sierra University.

“This opportunity doesn’t happen too often to girls just finishing their sophomore year,”  Bustamante said. “I am very flattered with this opportunity.”

While Bustamante is happy about the offer, she plans to keep her mind focused on her junior and senior seasons at REV.

“First of all I would like to thank God without him none of this would be possible,” she said. “But I have to stay focused on the upcoming year especially with my grades, school and just having fun with my softball teammates.”

Bustamante stated that the Golden Eagles became interested in her after watching her play with her travel ball team, the Orange County Batbusters.

 REV will look to build off a 14-8 overall season where the Wildcats took third in the Citrus Belt League behind Yucaipa and Citrus Valley.

San Bernardino County baseball all-stars beat Riverside, 5-2


Those who didn’t know Kenny Boardman before, saw him on Monday. When was the last home run you saw hit by a high schooler at San Manuel Stadium? I can’t remember. And this one was legit, out to left-center, not just inside the foul pole.


Robert Grande did a nice job of allowing several of the pitchers to hit in addition to pitch in the game.
