Softball Rankings: Rivalry week for West Covina and South Hills, who meet again after the Bulldogs’ 10-9 win in first meeting

I’m going to park the lawn chair at West Covina for today’s game against South Hills…

1. Glendora (9-2)
– Haven’t played in a while but that changes with a pair against Diamond Bar this week. They’re still the team to beat in the Valley, but the Brahmas could give them a test.
2. Bonita (12-1-1) — Nothing changed since last week, and if they can beat Charter Oak and Los Altos this week, you might as well crown them Miramonte League champs. They finally moved to No. 6 in D-3, a spot behind No. 5 Glendora.
3. South Hills (11-3-1) — Make or break week for the Huskies and West Covina, who will meet today and again later in the week. After West Covina’s 10-9 victory in the first meeting, will there be more fireworks in store?
4. West Covina (9-5) — The Bulldogs are No. 4 in the D-5 rankings with the Huskies a game behind. This series will come down to hitting, not pitching, which is kind of unusual for big softball games.
5. Arroyo (11-1) — The Knights are No. 2 in D-6 and like we mentioned last week, they won’t lose another game, and won’t be tested until they meet South El Monte again in the league finale.
6. Northview (10-5) — The Vikes lost in the championship of their own tournament to Santa Fe 7-0, but they look like the best in the VVL after seeing all three teams. They have the best hitting lineup and enough pitching to get by.
7. St. Lucy’s (9-5) — Won six of last eight and went 3-2 in the Carew Classic, which is impressive considering the opponents they faced. Very curious to see how they do the rest of the way in the Sierra.
8. Covina (10-3) — An impressive overall record with a win over San Dimas, but the jury’s still out until they can prove it again against San Dimas and Northview in the coming weeks.
9. Charter Oak (8-7) — With a 2-2 league mark, they’re really battling Los Altos for second unless they can pull off a huge win against Bonita. Might be the only week Charter Oak and Los Altos pull for each other against the Cats.
10. Los Altos (7-7) — They’re struggling to score runs, which has been a problem in the past too, but they don’t have the Patterson fall back plan this time, so they will continue to struggle.

    The Correct Top Ten

    Glendora – back from vacation some tough league games coming

    Bonita – notoriously starts slow after spring break

    Charter Oak – hosting tourney next week

    South Hills – have business to take care of

    St Lucys – Lefty is getting ready for sierra

    Los Altos – to many losses but young team will find its own with new coach..

    West Covina – Loses to Rowland? Say it again

    Diamond Bar – took a couple of steps backwards! Young team blues

    Arroyo – Good pitcher but weak schedule kills them, need I say more Freds killing me this one

    San Dimas – Just a matter of time the crme always rises to the top.

    Covina, North view, Rowland, Walnut, Diamond Ranch, and Azusa
    All the above need to show more the jury is still out

  • Good luck-

    It should be a very good game, both teams have worked hard over the year. Play hard, play well, play fair.

  • I am very glad to see some very strong politically/environmentally critical paintings from you; it also intrigues me to see a little bit of retro-Anthony painting style in composition, from my point of view. Does the political aspect influence earlier times of your artistic skills to out-picture unconsciously? Anyway, I am really happy to be able to enjoy seeing the images of these lovely yet disturbing paintings and hope this idiocy by the bureaucrats will be taken further than they even considered to be the results of their ugly actions.
