Baseball: Bishop Amat leaps to No. 1 in California on MaxPreps; but are they the area’s No. 1 … That tag still belongs to South Hills … for now

When South Hills and Bishop Amat meet in a nonleague game on Wednesday, April 28 at 6 p.m., at Mt. SAC, it will be the most anticipated nonleague game since Nieto and Murphy bumped chests in the 2008 Glendora Tournament Championship, won by Northview over Amat. That remains the largest non-CIF title crowd I’ve seen at a baseball game. I’m sure that could change if South Hills and Amat continue winning like this.

Intrigued minds want to know who’s the best of our four heavyweights, with three in action today and Glendora playing Crescenta Valley for its own title on Saturday.

Intrigue No. 1: Bishop Amat became the state’s No. 1 team on MaxPreps Thursday, though they’re still No. 2 with us …for now … Amat (4-0) takes on undefeated Orange Lutheran (4-0) in the championship game of the Newport Elks baseball tournament at 6 p.m. at Hart Park in Orange. The Lancers already have defeated CIF-Southern Section powers Palm Desert, Corona Santiago, Mater Dei and defending Division I champion Capistrano Valley 6-1 in the semifinals of the Elks tournament.

Intrigue No. 2: The Tribune’s No. 1 team, South Hills (5-0), has outscored its opponents 20-4 during the Don Lugo Tournament and will play in the championship at home this afternoon against Chino Hills (2-0-1) at 3:15 p.m. Chino Hills opened the Don Lugo Tournament with a 5-1 victory over defending Division IV champion San Dimas and the Huskies advanced with victories over Los Osos, Colony and Ontario.

Intrigue No. 3: Damien (3-0) is at home in the semifinals of the Chino Tournament at 3:15 p.m. against Redlands East Valley, with the winner advancing to Monday’s 7 p.m. championship game at Chino Hills High against the winner of today’s other semifinal between Chino and Rancho Cucamonga. Damien is holding a ceremony on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. to rename its baseball field after longtime athletic director Thomas Carroll, who has been at the school for 38 years. Damien’s baseball complex is one of the best in the Valley after upgrades over the past year, which include a new scoreboard and stadium seating the school purchased from Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles.

San Dimas Semifinals: Glendora knocks off No. 1 Bonita, 5-2; Etiwanda squeaks by Charter Oak

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.

Saturday’s championship
Glendora vs. Etiwanda, 6 p.m.

Above: Alison Strycula greets teammate Kayla Papez of Charter Oak High School after scoring against Northview.

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.

State Basketball Thursday: Bishop Amat shocker, beats Agoura 70-61; Lutheran edges Ribet Academy 79-77; DRanch goes down, 68-41

Bishop Amat game story: Arielle Wideman scored 20 points and Leticia Galarza and Vianai Austin had 15 each, and the visiting Lancers moved to the Southern California Regional semifinals with a 70-61 victory over No. 4 seed Agoura in a Division III quarterfinal Thursday.

Diamond Ranch game story: Diamond Ranch High School girls basketball coach Mike James knew his team couldn’t afford to get into foul trouble if it was to have a fighting chance against Southland power Brea Olinda in the second round of the CIF State Division II playoffs. But that’s exactly what happened on Thursday in a costly five-minute stretch of the second quarter that ultimately sent the Panthers packing with a 68-41 loss to end what’s been a stellar season.

La Verne Lutheran game story: Despite trailing 22-11 after one period and having no presence on the boards early, the Trojans rallied to beat Ribet 79-77, stunning a large contingency from Los Angeles that saw their Frogs lead through the first three quarters only to fall short.

Breaking News: We have obtained the proposals for boys and girls soccer division realignment for the 2010-12 cycles, and the changes are big

The 2010 Boys and Girls Soccer Division realignments proposals can be viewed by clicking the thread. These are not final, but this is what CIF is sending to all schools, who will then have a chance to review and/or submit their objections. But here’s the skinny for you local schools …

Above: If the proposals are passed, Bishop Amat and Los Altos will be joined in Division 3 girls soccer next season with all the top teams in the Valley from the Sierra and new Hacienda League. Winning that title is tougher than ever now.

Girls Soccer: The Mission Valley remains in Division 7, with the Montview, home of Division 7 champ Sierra Vista, moving up to Division 6, with check this out, the Rio Hondo and Valle Vista League both dropping to Division 6 as well. The new Hacienda League, which includes Los Altos and Walnut, will move to Division 3 along with the Del Rey League, which includes Bishop Amat. What will make this division even more intriguing is that the Sierra League, with St. Lucy’s, South Hills and Charter Oak, will also be in Division 3, throwing all the area’s top tier teams in the same playoff division.

Boys Soccer: Baldwin Park, say goodbye to Salesian. The Valle Vista League will remain in Division 5, and will be joined by the Mission Valley League, moving up a division after Mountain View’s back-to-back D-6 titles. Salesian and the Santa Fe League goes to Division 4, with the Montview, Hacienda League and Del Rey league joining them in D-4. The Sierra League will remain in D-2.

Bishop Amat Express rolls through Division I champ Capistrano Valley; If they beat Orange Lutheran on Friday, should they be No. 1 in all of California?

Game Story: The Lancers, who won Division V titles in 2007 and ’08 before advancing to the Division IV semifinals last season, improved to 4-0 and will face Orange Lutheran in Friday’s 6 p.m. championship game at Hart Park in Orange.

I can’t wait until the National Classic, with Amat we have a player, two if South Hills is legit. With all due respect to how well Damien, Glendora and South Hills are playing at the moment, you can’t compare their results with Bishop Amat, you just can’t. When our polls come out next week, regardless of whether Glendora wins the Glendora tourney or if South Hills wins Don Lugo, Bishop Amat will move to the top spot if they’re 5-0 with another win over Orange Lutheran, it’s that simple. They have just beaten Palm Desert, Corona Santiago, Mater Dei and now Capistrano Valley. You don’t roll through the caliber of opponents they’re rolling through and not get rewarded. This is absolutely great news for the Valley, reminding everyone everywhere that when it comes to baseball, the SGV takes a backseat to nobody. Amat will play Orange in the final on Friday at Hart Park in Orange at 6 p.m. Orange Lutheran has advanced with wins over Huntington Beach (8-5), Mission Viejo (11-7) and Tesoro (5-3).

San Dimas Tourney: Glendora’s Carly Argyle throws no-hitter; Charter Oak biggest surprise

Friday’s Semifinals
Bonita vs. Glendora, 3:15 p.m.
Charter Oak vs. Etiwanda, 5:15 p.m.

Above: The early reports on Tartans junior Carly Argyle is that she’s very, very impressive.

Recap: Forget about the Glendora rebuilding nonsense, just watched junior Carly Argyle throw a no-hitter, needing only five strikeouts to do it, beating Los Altos 1-0. The Conqs played well too, giving up just two hits, a single and triple that scored a run in the fourth, that was it. Bonita slammed West Covina in six and if Charter Oak continue’s to pitch and play defense, they will be a factor in the Miramonte. So here are the predictions, Bonita’s got the swag going, centerfielder Breeana Sandoval is off to a monster start, and with Glendora beating Bonita in last year’s tournament, you have to like the ‘Cats chances in the rematch. Etiwanda probably beats Charter Oak, but curious to know how the Chargers compete. In the final, sticking with Bonita, they’re still out to prove a point.

Charter Oak is charging: - Lost in the shuffle of the Bonitas and Glendoras of the Valley is the Charter Oak High School softball team, but that may change with more performances like Wednesday’s 12-0 win over Northview in five innings in the quarterfinals of the San Dimas Tournament.

San Dimas Softball Tournament
Wednesday’s Quarterfinals
Etiwanda 15, Wilson 0
Charter Oak 12, Northview 0, 5 innings
Glendora 1, Los Altos 0

Mountain View boys soccer fall to Dinuba 7-6 in PKs after 1-1 in regulation and sudden-death

In Mountain’s View’s fourth overtime in the playoffs, they weren’t so fortunate in the first round of the Southern California Division II State Regionals, losing on the road to Central Section’s Dinuba 7-6 in PKs after a 1-1 tie in regulation and two overtimes. Mountain View would have won in the first-round of PKs, but the ref called GK Ozzie Martinez for moving early, which sent the best-of-five PKs into a sudden-death PK situation, which they lost.

Aram fishing again, reporting that Northview’s Jim Arellanes the front-runner for Los Altos job.

The job is Arellanes’ if he wants it, sources tell “In the Huddle.” Now the question is, will he take it, keeping in mind what Arellanes posted on his facebook back in February. Arellanes has had discussions with Los Altos since former St. John Bosco coach Kiki Mendoza turned the job down, but Arellanes disputed Aram’s claims that the job is his if he wants it.

Bishop Amat pounds Mater Dei 7-2, Zavala cracks three homers and the Lancers are 3-0

On a separate note, the L.A. Times reports that with Dodger and Angel Stadium unavailable, the Southern Section baseball finals for its top divisions will be held at the Lake Elsinore Storm, an 8,000-seat facility used by the San Diego Padres’ Class-A team, on June 4 and 5. The other division finals will take place at UC Riverside.

Bishop Amat moved into the semifinals of the Newport Elks tournament with a 7-2 win at Mater Dei on Monday, which comes after Elks victories over Palm Desert and Corona Santiago. Bernardo Zavala, who we failed to mention in our preview, had three homers and five RBIs. When you’re getting production from new names to go with the line-up they already have, that’s scary. Brandon McNitt struck out seven in going the distance, sending the Lancers to Wednesday’s semifinal against Capistrano Valley, the reigning Division I champions, at Capistrano Valley High at 3:15 p.m, and we’re hearing lefty Paul Paez will get the nod. BTW, Capo Valley crushed St. Paul 16-2 and also is 3-0. Coach, what do you think?
“Its’ Always nice to start out on the right foot,” Lancers coach Andy Nieto said. “Mater Dei is Mater Dei, it’s not one of their great teams, but they have a lot of tradition and are always good.
“I still don’t think our guys are operating on full cylinders, but it’s also nice to have others step up (Zavala) so you’re not counting on the same faces all the time. It wasn’t just the three home runs, it’s how hard he’s hitting the ball. Offensively, this team has a chance to compete, we just have to keep working.”

Another Sunday Tribbin and life at TribCenter, where we don’t say “Da, Da, Da …. Da, Da, Da,” we say, “Du Du Du …. Du Du, Du.”

Anything and anyone you want to talk about.

You see what this is doing to me, after three straight days of covering championships, and ALL ending in SGV champions, I’m in prep overload, the beginning of baseball and softball, and already we have a few surprises. No Patterson and No. 9 Los Altos still crushes No. 3 South Hills in softball, the re-evaluation of the rankings already taking place, with the exception of course Bonita, already 4-0 and a tourney champ, winning in Palm Springs. I can’t think of a team hungrier than them. Glendora swept Upland twice, showing they’re not going anywhere, using two different pitchers, Argyle throwing a 1-hitter in the second. Didn’t need any convincing in baseball that Amat and South HIlls are legit, but wondering about Bonita and Northview, tied 7-7 after 9 innings on Saturday, just a day after Bonita crushed Ayala, 21-1. It doesn’t appear these two are ready to give up their area swagger just yet, either. Next week should be fun, the Glendora baseball and San Dimas softball tourney’s hit full tilt, state championship playoff games begin, and this guy and his crew have to start selecting the all-area winters teams, players of the year, coaches of the year, etc, etc. That’s life at the prep desk.

Boys Soccer Final: With a heavy heart, Mountain View wins its second straight Division 6 title for former vice principal Bobby Salcedo, whose memory lives on with the team

“Everyone has a special place in their heart for Salcedo,” Mountain View midfielder Fabian Villasenor said. “We all wanted to do this for him.”

This one was for Bobby.
Before the Mountain View High School boys soccer team accepted its championship plaque after knocking off top-seed Hesperia Oak Hills 2-1 to capture its second straight CIF-Southern Section Division 6 title on Saturday at Warren High School in Downey, the Vikings took a moment to gather themselves. They huddled, raised their hands, looked at the sky and shouted Bobby Salcedo’s name, the former vice principal of the school who was murdered during the Christmas Holidays while vacationing with his wife in Mexico.
