MONTEBELLO — Cantwell High School began the week with an outside shot for a Del Rio League title.Bishop Amat put an end to those hopes early Thursday.Alyssa Barrera and Madeline Ramirez each had four RBIs to lead the Lancers to a 17-0 victory over the host Cardinals in a Del Rey League game that was halted after five innings due to the 10-run rule. Ramirez and Barrera had three and two hits, respectively, for Amat, which improved to 15-6 overall and 8-1 in league play. The win keeps the Lancers tied for first with St. Paul, who they face on May 11. Britney Huerta and Julia Guzman had singles for the third-place Cardinals, who slipped to 12-10 and 4-5.Cantwell lost to Amat, 3-0, on April 14, and the Lancers made sure early this one would be different. They scored three runs in the first and seven in both the third and fourth to put it away.
Amat’s Alyssa Barrera: “The last game (against Cantwell) we didn’t come out 100 percent, while the first game (a 14-0 Amat win) we came out 100 percent. This was more like the first game. We had great at-bats during the game, taking pitches, going deep in counts. We did a good job throughout the whole lineup.”
Cantwell coach Ralph Martin Del Campo: “It was just one of those games where the girls weren’t on and they were on. (Amat) hit the ball real well. There’s not much you can do about that when they hit the ball like that. We had a few errors, but they hit the ball real well.”
Odds are you’ve heard Corey Kwok’s voice if you’ve been to just about any local high school sporting event.From baseball to basketball to football to even girls volleyball, Kwok, who is known by most as “Corn Dawg,” has become the voice of the Valley … and parts well beyond. His booming voice may not match his frame, but it’s certainly caught on and made him one of the most recognizable figures on the local sports scene.It’s a pretty good niche Kwok has carved himself. He does the public address announcing for local sporting events and in return gets to be around the sports and people he loves. Sometimes, a few bucks get thrown his way, too.Not bad for someone who doesn’t drive and rarely has a working cell phone.“It’s above and beyond so worth it because of the people I’ve met and continue to meet,” Kwok said while interviewed at a Pasadena noodle restaurant just minutes before catching a train to his next assignment. “I enjoy it when people I don’t know come up to me and commend me for a great job. It’s not just fans and parents, it’s players, too.”Kwok, who prefers to go by his more adult-sounding moniker “Swaggy C,” is known for his sometimes flashy appearance. He tries to rock the latest popular basketball shoes with some wild socks as often as his wallet allows. It makes him very distinctive for fans to notice.

It used to be that spring football marked a special time on the high school football calendar.
It was a first step toward the upcoming season, if you will. Players and coaches would reunite and for three weeks or so hold practices in T-shirts and shorts, the consequences of which are debatable.
These days, though, spring practice is merely the latest activity in a offseason of that seemingly never ends.
“Spring football isn’t spring football anymore,” veteran Charter Oak head coach Lou Farrar said. “The offseason is never really ‘off’ anymore. When real football practice started in August, you used to wait for it. But it’s always there now.
“You don’t want to diminish the season, but the preparation is so long.”
Over the next week or so, most area teams will begin their own manicured version of spring practice.
At Charter Oak, the practices will be four days a week and offer a chance to any would-be player on campus to join the 68 guys who have been part of the offseason festivities since the season ended last November. Farrar isn’t expecting a big turnout.

Both of the runs he allowed were unearned.Mauch went 5 1/3 innings, giving up four hits and striking out two. Both of the runs he allowed were unearned.“I was really pumped up about this game,” said Mauch, who has committed to Long Beach State. “It was a big game and nice to be out there with the chance to keep us in first place. I wasn’t pleased with the command of my curve ball so I didn’t throw that many. It was the fastball and change and mixing speeds.”
