San Dimas Tournament, Friday’s Semifinals
Glendora 5, Bonita 2
Etiwanda 3, Charter Oak 0
Glendora-Bonita game story: When Glendora High School met Bonita in last year’s San Dimas Tournament softball game, then-sophomore Carly Argyle stepped in the circle for injured starter Dana Waldusky and promptly led the Tartans to an eye-opening victory over the Bearcats.
Glendora vs. Etiwanda, 6 p.m.

Softball Today: The Tribune’s No. 1 Bonita (6-0), already the winner of the Palm Springs Tournament, takes on Glendora (5-0) in the first semifinal at 3:15 p.m., two days after Tartans junior Carly Argyle threw a no-hitter in a 1-0 quarterfinal victory over Los Altos. In the late semifinal, surging Charter Oak (4-0) takes on defending San Dimas tourney champ Etiwanda (2-0) at 5:15p.m.
Predictions: This is almost the same situation as last year when Bonita was undefeated after winning the Palm Springs tournament and got beat by Glendora in in the San Dimas tournament, only they didn’t lose to Tartans standout pitcher Dana Waldusky, she was hurt. Argyle got the nod and the win. That’s not going to happen twice, Bonita is much better offensively and Chloe Wurst still does her job in the cirlce, take the ‘Cats. Etiwanda is Etiwanda, and though Charter Oak is scoring like crazy, not sure they can keep that up against the quality pitching they face today, take Etiwanda.
Twitter: I will twitter updates or final scores from the San Dimas tourney, as well as what’s going on at South Hills and Bishop Amat later tonight baseball.
