South Hills’ journey deserves a “Tony” Award

South Hills’ emotional journey is going to end with a Division 5 championship opportunity against defending champion Whittier Christian on Friday at 5:15 p.m., at Deanna Manning Stadium in Irvine. This is a team you can’t think about without thinking of Britney Rodriguez, whose brother Tony and big fan of the Huskies died in a car accident back in March, which obviously was a trying time for weeks. It’s great to see how they pulled together and have this opportunity now. BTW, does coach Scott Fisch have another dive in him?

One South Hills High School punch beat La Canada’s 1-2 punch in Tuesday’s CIF-Southern Section Division 5 softball semifinals. Sophomore Sydney La Follette delivered the knockout punch in the sixth inning, breaking a 1-1 tie with a full-count double, to lead the Huskies to a 3-1 victory and the CIF-SS championship game for the first time since 1997, when they defeated St. Paul, 2-1, for the Division IV crown.

    It is very true, when you think of SH you cant help but think about Britney Rodriguez. This girl is amazing, after everything that has happened she still comes out a winner and somehow always leads the lady huskies to victory!Tony is one of the Huskies biggest fan, and he is watching over them. GO GET GIRLS BRING HOME THE BIG ONE FOR YOUR ANGEL TONY.

    the Trib identifies the coach sliding into home in the print edition as Head Coach Scott Fisch. Isn’t that Scott standing to the left? If so – who’s sliding, and how is it we have ANOTHER obvious error.

  • Look Alike?

    That looks like Snyder from Rowland!

    I hope you’re joking because that is Scott Fisch. The assistant coach is standing on the left. Why are you making such an obvious error?

  • No Error

    That is Scott Fisch! The guy to the left is Coach Jim.
