Aram Column: Aram spent the first half at Bonita-La Serna and the second half at San Dimas-Bonita … wrote Aram, “If you would have told me back in September that on a cold December night I’d be splitting time between Bonita and San Dimas watching both play for a shot at a 14th game, I would’ve told you to stop smoking your newspaper.”
Breaking News: Aram talked to Bonita coach Eric Podley who said Citrus and Mt. SAC are not options. Apparently, Bonita is shopping for venues as I’m typing this. Looks like Walnut and Damien are options.
Bonita has the home game in the rematch against West Covina. If I could drive almost two hours to watch Rosemead play at Paraclete H.S. in a December championship (2008), why shouldn’t Bonita ask for a home game too? I thought Diamond Ranch buckled last year when they could have hosted the game at Ganesha instead of playing at Ayala. The year Diamond Ranch hosted the game at Mt. SAC, which was Charter Oak’s preference even though the Panthers had the home game. If Bonita could host a Smudge Pot, they could host a title game. I’m guessing West Covina will want Mt. SAC or Citrus, stay tuned. On Monday, we’re following the teams to Long Beach for the championships luncheon.
