AREA TOP TEN
1. South Hills (18-3-1) — Still leading the Sierra with a pair of huge games this week against third-place Damien Wednesday and Friday.
2. Glendora (17-5) — In cruise control in the Baseline having already clinched the league title. Tartans baseball is good no matter what league you put them in.
3. San Dimas (17-6-1) — Why do I hate home-and-away series? San Dimas leads Northview by a game with two weeks left but they don’t play again. They played their home-and-away back in March. Who settles titles in March? The Valle Vista.
4. Bonita (18-9) — A loss to West Covina leaves the Bearcats (6-2) only a game ahead of Diamond Bar (5-3) and Diamond Ranch (5-3) in Hacienda.
5. Damien (15-6) – The Spartans can get back in the title picture with a sweep over South Hills. Not likely though.
6. Bishop Amat (12-11) — Not only trying to stay above .500 but fighting for its playoff life in Del Rey. Two biggies against second-place La Salle this week.
7. Sierra Vista (16-2) — Dons keep plugging along with area’s best winning percentage and only two losses all season.
8. Diamond Bar (14-9) — Still clinging to slim chance of at least sharing the Hacienda with Bonita.
9. West Covina (13-9) — Big win over Bonita, but still not likely to make the playoffs with five losses in league.
10. Northview (14-9) –– Only a game back of San Dimas in the Valle Vista, but getting swept by the Saints back in March probably ends serious title hopes.
