Charter Oak made its only passing tournament of the offseason count by beating Crescenta Valley to win the North County Tournament hosted by Rancho Buena Vista and El Camino high schools.
The Chargers picked up wins along the way against Orange Lutheran and Santa Margarita. Charter Oak also beat defending Division I state bowl champ Oceanside on Friday afternoon. The 32-team tournament consisted of teams from Arizona, Utah, Nevada as well as teams from various California sections.
Aram’s take: Impressive considering that Charter Oak is replacing quite a bit from last year’s team. Not sure what this means once the pads come on, but I’m sure it helps the confidence of the youngsters. It’s also a good sign that CO won’t miss a beat skill-wise, so the pressure’s really on the rebuilt lines
