velasquez
AREA TOP TEN
1. South Hills (16-3-1) — A full game ahead of Chino Hills after posting two impressive victories last week. Still, finishing first wont be easy.
2. Glendora (15-5) — The only sport at Glendora that has no probelm with the Baseline. The Tartans are in first and in firm control.
3. San Dimas (15-6-1) — Saints sweep Nogales and rest of the schedule friendly. They shouldn’t lose another game before the playoffs.
4. Bonita (16-6) — Had nine-game win streak snapped in 3-2 loss to Gahr, but has two big games this week against West Covina Tuesday and Friday.
5. Bishop Amat (11-9) — Lancers split last week, but still only game back of La Salle in the Del Rey, who it faces two more times.
6. Damien (13-6) – Went 0-2 in a make-or-break week for the Sierra title. Now the Spartans are battling just to make the playoffs in a tie for third.
7. Diamond Bar (14-8) — Brahmas seem like they can beat anyone, but they still could have problems making the playoffs in Hacienda.
8. Sierra Vista (14-2) — A perfect 8-0 in the Montview, the Dons have the fewest losses of any Tribune teams.
9. Los Altos (12-10) — Despite its barely above .500 record, the Conqs still only a game back of Bonita in the Hacienda.
10. West Covina (12-8) — If West Covina were in the Mission Valley or Montview, they would be undefeated in league. That’s how balanced the Hacienda is.

    After the horrible loss to Ayala, slipping into third place and praying to St. Damien for a playoff spot, Al Leyva and crew need to resign and take the AD with them. It’s pathetic they can’t win league. Damien must fire these horrible coaches this year! No if, buts either! They are a disgrace to the Damien baseball program. I left two years ago and the nothing has changed. A bad coaching staff will never win anything. The Damien baseball program, baseball players and families who support this program and school deserve better than this circus. Its time to say bye to Little Albert, Clappy and the AD who continues to turn a blind eye to the problem. Clean House Now!!!

      Sports watcher, would you take Amat’s Head coach?

        No way! We’ve had enough with crappy programs. I heard DHS is pursuing the San Dimas coach. At this point, we’ll take a coach from little league or a softball league. We’ll take anyone who knows the game. Anyone out there interested?
