Girls Basketball top ten

2. Walnut (16-3) – Extremely impressed with Mustangs, not only did they beat South Hills, beat Magnolia too at Ayala showcase on Saturday.
3. Bishop Amat (15-5) – Serra took care of Lancers, 55-47, and now has the inside track toward the Del Rey league title.
4. Bonita (18-2) – Young and talented, they might finally beat Diamond Ranch soon, but not this season.
5. South Hills (13-5) – On paper this team has talent, but they do turn the ball over way too much.
6. Glendora (16-4) — After a tough loss to Chino Hills, hold your breath, Ayala next on Wednesday.
7. Sierra Vista (13-5) – In cruise control, they should be the first team to have a league-title wrapped up.

9. Rosemead (13-4) – On a roll, winners of nine of their last ten games, and a five game winning streak.

Chino Hills High School was one of the few boys soccer teams to take on the elements last Friday – losing a rain-soaked game at Diamond Bar. The two-time defending Sierra League champion Huskies saw their 22-game league unbeaten streak end that day. The Huskies had a chance to start a new victory streak Monday with a make-up match at Glendora. Chino Hills came away with a satisfying 3-1 victory that puts them right back in the league race. With goals from Bryan Gutierrez, Brandon Portal and Christian Leandro, Chino Hills (8-6-4, 3-1) regained the league lead by a half game over Glendora (11-4-3, 2-1) and Diamond Bar (7-5-1, 2-1). (To continue and view the rest of the boys and girls basketball and soccer boxscores Monday, click thread.)

I’m on the fence for No. 1, but it will be either Bishop Amat or South Hills, with Glendora, San Dimas and Damien not far back. Then there are the usual’s like Northview, Bonita and those expected to do well also like Diamond Bar, Walnut, Los Altos, Charter Oak, etc. I would also love to hear from you who might be this years sleepers, like maybe a Sierra Vista, Wilson, or Baldwin Park.
Chino High needs a team: Due to a schedule conflict Chino needs one baseball team for the Chino pre-season tournament. The dates are March 3,8,10,12 and 16th. Those interested should contact Bob Sheehan at 909-627-7351 ext. 3706.
That’s Mr. Kevin Smith: Wonder if I will get hammered for using this photo too? Hey, he’s our reigning coach of the year, and I personally can’t wait for the Huskies to meet-up with Bishop Amat this season. Both teams are also in the National Classic.
