The Butler did it!
Glendora has had some nice success over the past two seasons. Coach Mark Pasquarella turning around the Tartans program was something many local pundits saw coming. Glendora has finished second and third, respectively, in the past two seasons in the very difficult Sierra League.

Replacing this is the only concern Big Lou had this off-season
I have started CO as the unofficial No. 1 team in the area heading into Spring practice. Do I expect to find out something that makes me shake up the rankings? No, I don’t. What you saw below with the rankings is merely a guideline for the summer. Tons will happen between now and the SGV Tribune football preview issue, which by the way, sports some serious one-day sales figures.

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.
