Girls Volleyball: This week’s top 10

Girls Volleyball Top 10
1. St. Lucy’s (9-5) —
The Regents took on some of the best teams in the country and after going 4-4 during last weekend, broke even in Las Vegas. Who can do the same?
2. Chino Hills (10-1) — The Huskies have three victories over teams who have been ranked in our Top 10 this season. They get St. Lucy’s next week.
3. Bonita (10-2) — The Bearcats showed heart in beat Los Altos in four games on Tuesday. The tandem of Katie Kirby and Ashley Maxfeldt might be one of the best in the area.
4. Los Altos (7-2) — The Conquerors rebounded from a poor start by winning six of seven at the Mayfair Tournament.
5. South Hills (6-2) — The Huskies are expected to challenge St. Lucy’s and Chino Hills in a rugged Sierra League. St. Lucy’s is up first, next Tuesday.
6. Glendora (3-0) — The Tartans took the week off, but got back to work with a nonleague match against Ayala before facing Baseline League power Los Osos next week.
7. San Dimas (9-4) — The Saints are expected to roll in the Valle Vista.
8. Diamond Bar (11-6) — The Brahmas, who lost in four to Bonita last week, rebounded with a solid showing at the Whittier Tournament.
9. Ayala (5-2) — Most view the Bulldogs as the No. 4 team in the Sierra. That only demonstrates how rugged that league is.
10. La Puente (3-3) — The Warriors, ranked No. 6 in Division 4-A, opened Montview League play on a winning note.

Hundreds gather to say goodbye to Fred Fraijo, loving family man and coach who touched many; Softball fundraiser on Thursday at Irwindale Park

The Northview baseball and softball teams, its alumni, and any past players that played for coach Fred Fraijo are welcome to participate in Thursday’s softball game at Irwindale Park in honor of Fred. The game will start at 5 p.m., with friends joining the field at 6 p.m. All donations and snackbar proceeds will benefit to the Fraijo family.

Hundreds gathered at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Irwindale on Tuesday to say goodbye to Fred Fraijo, who died last week in a motorcycle crash. Fraijo, 49, was beloved as a devoted family man and dedicated assistant softball coach at Northview High School who often provided one-on-one training in his backyard. Northview players attended the funeral wearing team jerseys, while co-workers at Sierra Aluminum Co. in Fontana – where Fraijo worked 23 years as a plant manager – arrived on motorcycles with black T-shirts that read “Fred Fraijo rode hard to the end.”

The Glendoranator, Gretchen Jaques, will represent Team USA, and chooses Texas


Glendora’s Gretchen Jaques, arguably the best girls swimmer in the history of the San Gabriel Valley, has been selected to represent the United States on the 2010-2011 National Youth Team. The National Youth Team is a stepping stone to the USA National team where many athletes go on to represent the country in international competitions.

The USA Swimming 2010-2011 National Youth Team was selected from the top six times in Olympic events for 18 & U athletes at the 2010 Conoco Phillips National Championships and 2010 Speedo Junior National Championships. Gretchen qualified with her time of 26.22 in the 50 meter freestyle.

After visiting the University of Texas, Jaques verbally committed to attend there next fall and will be signing her letter of intent during the early signing period in November.
