Bonita baseball coach Samuel Lopez resigns after one year with the team; Delgado leaves for South Hills

Bonita baseball coach Samuel Lopez told his players Thursday that he is resigning after one year on the job, school officials confirmed. Lopez took over for longtime coach John Knott, who had built Bonita into a powerhouse and won a CIF title in 2012.
Lopez guided the Bearcats to a 15-11 overall record, but the Bearcats, accustomed to making deep playoff runs, failed to reach the Division 1 playoffs.
Lopez had left Carter High for Bonita after a successfull five-year tenure, compiling a 98-40 record, making the playoffs in all five years, and winning a league title three times. Sources said Lopez left to take another job closer to home. Also, senior-to-be Tommy Delgado, an infielder, transferred to South Hills. Delgado was injured for part of the season, but as a sophomore, he had a monster year, batting. 388 with five homers and 33 RBIs.
