So what did I miss?

When you take a week off and force yourself to stay away from all things prep sports, when you get back it feels like you’ve been gone for a month. Biggest surprise? La Verne Lutheran still in the state playoffs. All year we talk about Bonita, Damien and Bishop Amat and Bonita girls and Lutheran is back where they were last year, a game away from the state finals against La Canada, probably the best coached team in the Valley. Biggest disappointments, SGV baseball, Los Osos and Alta Loma in the final of the Covina/Northview tournament? Our preseason No. 1, Diamond Bar, 1-4? What happened to South Hills, Bonita, Los Altos and Damien? What’s going on with Bishop Amat, from what I can gather on MaxPreps they’re 3-2-1 with a couple games not reported? I’m scratching my head in softball too, Bonita dominated in Palm Springs, but couldn’t even beat Charter Oak for third in the San Dimas tournament? Give it up for Glendora, they won the San Dimas tourney after losing in previous years finals. I should have known with Argyle that they can beat anyone. I won’t apologize for our preseason No. 1, Bishop Amat, who is 6-1 after competing in the tournament of champions in Arizona. That’s a big-time result considering the teams in that tournament. So now that I’m back, what’s next?

    Sorry Fred–South Hills baseball only loss was to the Champions Alta Loma and we almost had them later in the game –gave up 7 runs in the first couple of innings –can’t do that– lost 10-8. Good baseball though, looking forward to a great season.

  • ?

    Well D-Bar has the same old issues, Bad coaching and no offense. How in the world are they 1-4?

  • SHBaseball

    South Hills Baseball is 4-1. Pitching had its problems against alta loma but they still battled back from 7-0 to lose 10-8. They beat up on Los Altos saturday. I wouldn’t worry about them!

  • Not WC fan

    Well lets see!

    Bulldog1 is STILL running his mouth from football season, while his baseball team with his kids stink!, And yes he STILL is a pain in a A**, and “ATTEMPTING” to cause problems. Must be that short man syndrom. Other than that, Welcome back Lancer Lover!

  • FredJ

    Looking forward to Damien vs. South Hills in baseball Thursday at South Hills…..

    I truly hope you enjoyed you vacation …SAVE US FROM BOREDOM ! Get the blog rolling again …


  • Blue Blood

    Fred, welcome back. Do you have a link where I can see the teams, brackets and scores from the Arizona Tournament where Bishop Amat played? Also, the boys Varsity team is just fine at Amat. Big game tonight vs. Chatsworth at USC 6:30p, come on out and get a look for yourself. Thanks in advance for any help you ca give with the link.

    Went and watched Dbar play Marina. Mathews looked good. He went the distance and gave up 6 or 7 hits with 1 error behind him. Dbar lost. Offense was anemic. His first outing of the year he also went the distance for the win, but parent shared that bats dont offer support. I also went and watched Damien vs Rancho Cucamonga. Same story there. Gonzalez went 6 and gave up 4 hits, but two costly errors behind him. Gonzales looked solid, but Damien bats were anemic. Gonzalez first outing was a shut out of highly regarded Yucaipa.
    After watching these two SGV teams it is obvious that there are many underclassmen playing on both teams. If bats catch up to these veteran arms, Dbar and Damien might make some noise in league and CIF. If not, could be long seasons for both. Hope to catch Amat and Bonita game.

    Any dates yet Fred?

  • Bulldog1

    Fred, welcome back. Lets see, whats new? Steve has done a good job covering your blog while you were on vacation. Finally there are pictures of winners and not the sad sad faces of the losing teams, winners, thats what people like to see and he gets it. Other than that, we win with class and humility always.
    I think time is running out for the other local high schools to achieve what we have this year. So, if its not too much to ask, award us now High School Sports of the year, that way there will be more time for the locals to kneel down, pay homage, and Kiss the Ring.
    Bulldog fever.

  • looking at maxpreps db has some hitting issues except for mathews. hearing the young kids aren’t coming thru.

  • No Class, Humility, or Ring


    Where is the class and humility? More importantly, where is the ring? My son will have his CIF ring from WC Football, neither of your sons have played a down of football at West Covina. The only ring we might be able to kiss at your house is a 11-12 championship ring from Orangewood Little League. No class, no humility, no ring at the N………I mean Bulldog1 house. One win this baseball season, no class, no humility…….and NO RING.

    Sucks to be Bulldog1.

  • Bulldog1

    No Class, Humility, or Ring, you or your boy do not rep WC. You probably sweep the floors at South Hills or Covina High. The only way your boy has a CIF ring is if he stole it from a real Bulldog. If your boy really had a CIF ring you would proudly post his name, if not youre a coward! And Im sure you are. You wont even man up and comment with a real Moniker!
    I have posting for years under the same Moniker, Im not hiding so why are you?
    At West Covina high, the Bulldogs are a tight family, we always win with class and humility.
    Others like you and your BOY are just wanabees! Wishing you were on top just once in life.
    Bulldog Fever.

    Does anyone know who pitched for Glendora in their 11-3 loss to Crescenta Valley on March 12, in the Clint Harwick Baseball Tournament. Maxpreps shows this games score but not the stats, although the stats for their other games are listed?

    bulldog1 is the new kh. But at least kh’s nonsense was entertaining. Bulldog1 is just a jerk.

  • AMAT 73

    I beg to differ with you on the kh comparison. kh has much to offer on the game of baseball. Yes he is a true blue Bonita supporter and a little wild at times but the man does know baseball. This bullfrog fool couldn’t carry kh’s jock let alone his cleats on knowledge of the game. Just look at him talking all that smack when WC’s signature win so far is a 12-0 win against Keppel.

  • FBFan


    I will not argue with you on that one. You are absolutely correct!
