Girls Soccer: Bishop Amat 3, Los Altos 1

By Fred J. Robledo
The Bishop Amat and Los Altos girls soccer teams fell a game short of meeting in last year’s CIF-Southern Section Division 4 championship – both ousted in the semifinals and ruining a much-anticipated rematch after a 0-0 tie earlier that season.
And what a season it was, the soccer powers with a combined record of 52-3-2 while outscoring their opponents 207-19. Although a year late, the rematch finally came on Thursday at Los Altos in front of a better-than-expected December crowd.
Neither team has been as dominant out of the gate, particularly on the defensive end, which led to Bishop Amat’s come-from-behind 3-1 victory after trailing 1-0 at half.

Star-News issues a challenge, Tribune accepts

The Star-News just concluded two all-star volleyball games, a senior game and public vs. private all-star game. The word now is the Star-News senior all-stars want to challenge the Tribune senior all-stars in a mid-January showdown, which we have graciously accepted. I already spoke with St. Lucy’s coach Sean Douglas, who has agreed to coach the Tribune all-stars. We will release the Tribune girls volleyball all-area team in January, and members from the first team that are seniors are all invited to participate. The rest of the team will be selected the next few weeks. When I get a firm date and location, I will share it with, but this is truly a great way to send out the seniors, especially considering the great year it was in girls volleyball. I can’t wait to watch players from Chino Hills, St. Lucy’s, Bonita and Los Altos all on the same team.
