Wow, the SGV got shocked! Los Altos (Miramonte League champ), Northview (Valle Vista League champ), South Hills (San Antonio League champ), South El Monte (co- Mission Valley league champ) all ONE-AND-DONE!
CO, of course, is still going.
Those league champs, Nogales and Damien all said adios. I don’t know how many of you catch my TV show on Adelphia, but I was asked, in consecutive weeks, about San Dimas’ chances in the playoffs. I said repeatedly that we often see teams that finish second but go further than the league champ does in the playoffs. That would be San Dimas. I said that before the brackets were released and here we are with Northview gone and San Dimas still playing.
I was also asked which team out of San Dimas, Charter Oak or Damien would go furthest. I said Charter Oak because the Chargers got one helluva draw. CO drew La Puente while Northview got La Habra. No offense to La Puente, but La Habra is a much more difficult first round game. The Vikes were handed a tough assignment, no doubt.
Bishop Amat, Charter Oak, Chino, Mountain View and San Dimas are all that’s left from this area. Yikes!
Meanwhile, the Sierra League flexed its muscle in softball. Diamond Bar, Chino Hills and Glendora all advanced. Diamond Bar shutout the top seed in the division. If you like softball, then you’re treated by having the Sierra League in this area!
