After beating REV, Rim girls volleyball ready for Durango Classic

Many of the top girls volleyball teams in the CIF Southern Section will be in Las Vegas this weekend for the 64-team Durango Fall Classic, which will be held at four high schools.
TX Body: And several of the top teams from San Bernardino County will be there, including preseason Sun Top 10 teams Redlands East Valley, Chino Hills and Rim of the World. Los Osos is a fourth county team in the tournament.
“I’m interested to see how we compete against bigger schools.” Rim coach Linda Pattison said.
All three of the county ranked teams, could end up facing each other if the seedings hold.
All three are seeded third in their four-team pool, so if they all went 1-2 in their pools on Friday they’d have a chance to play each other in Classic qualifying round Saturday morning or in the Classic Division Bracket or Contenter Division Bracket later on Saturday.
Rim is the highest seeded of the four county teams, seeded 40th overall, followed by REV (43rd), Chino Hills (47th) and Los Osos (57th). Los Osos is seeded fourth in its pool.
Pattison said Rim’s 14-25, 20-25, 25-16, 25-21, 15-12 win last week over REV improved the Scots’ seeding for the tournament.
“It moved us up more than it moved them down,” she said.
Rim’s win also did a lot for her team beyond tournament seeding.
“REV’s a good team and it shows we’re capable of beating a team like that,” she said.
In the match, Pattison said middle blocker Tia MacGuire, who Pattison did not expect to play due to an ankle injury, provided a big lift by playing in Sets 3, 4 and 5. They also had regular standouts Maddie Newcombe and Chloe Castillo (17 kills).
Rim usually schedules a tough preseason, so beating REV could help Rim in this tournament, in REV’s tournament Oct. 17 or in the CIF-SS playoffs.
Rim will play Honolulu ‘Iolani, Vista Murrieta and Los Osos in pool play on Friday.

Thoughts on Jurupa Hills’ football win over Rim

There were a few things I wanted to mention, following up from Friday night’s Jurupa Hills 31-21 victory over Rim of the World in a Mountain Valley League showdown.

  • At the least, it should move No. 3 Jurupa Hills past No. 2 Rim in the East Valley Division rankings.
  • The size of the crowd there was a little disappointing to me, although it was not homecoming, nor was it senior night. Perhaps as the newest school in town, Jurupa Hills has trouble growing a fan base especially with perennial power Kaiser also in South Fontana. I understand why coach Ed McMillon is trying to convince people in the community to watch his team play. They are exciting and good and they should get some more support.
  • Jurupa Hills had a ridiculous number of penalties, which will need to be corrected if the Spartans want to win a CIF title. By my count, Jurupa Hills had 15 penalties for 140 yards. Rim? They had just three for 20 yards.
  • Jurupa Hills’ defense was very impressive, including senior linebacker Deshire Singleton, as well as Nick Navarro, who had his second pick-6 in the last two weeks (a fact I failed to mention in the story). When you hold Rim to 225 yards rushing on 51 carries as a team and intercept them 3 times, you’re doing something right.
  • The Jurupa Hills offense stagnated at times, but then showed the ability to break open at any given time.
  • One thing I did mention in the story, but bears repeating: Neither of these teams won league last year, but both made at least the CIF-SS semifinals. Rim could still make a playoff run like it did despite losing twice in league last year.
  • Can these teams face each other again? It’s possible. But if Jurupa Hills wins out, they will get the No. 2 seed (assuming No. 1 St. Margaret’s wins out). If, as a result, Rim gets the league’s second entry into the playoffs, Rim would have to be on the other half of the bracket from Jurupa Hills and could be no better than a 4 seed. Last year, there were two Mountain Valley League rematches in the playoffs: and both times the team that lost in league, won in the playoffs: Jurupa Hills beating Citrus Valley in the second round, and Rim beating Banning in the semifinals.

It’s hard to imagine the Los Osos volleyball team getting much better, but that’s exactly what happened this offseason. The team that finished one win shy of the first CIF championship in school history gained two transfers, one of which helped lead her team to a CIF title last season.

Alyssa Ybanez, the 2012 Mountain Valley League offensive MVP, transferred to Los Osos along with 6-foot-1 Aquinas middle blocker Delaney Goodrich. They will join a core of players at Los Osos including the reigning Daily Bulletin Player of the Year, Cal-bound senior Ashten Smith-Gooden and Ashley Kaylor, a first team All-Valley selection last season.
