Congrats go out to former Diamond Bar standout Gary Brown, a Tribune All-Area selection in 2007, who was drafted in the first round of the MLB Draft by the San Francisco Giants with the 24th pick.
Brown has played for Cal-State Fullerton for the past three seasons. He was drafted in the 12th round out of high school, but opted to hone his skills in the college game first. Obviously, it paid off.
South Hills High School principal Judith North announced she will retire at the end of the school year during an emotional assembly at the school on Friday afternoon.
North, arguably one of the best sports principals in the Valley, has been a visible figure at all Huskies sporting events during her time at the school.
“Most intellectuals can’t lead,” South Hills football coach Steve Bogan said. “Judi North is an intellectual who could lead. She has to be going into semi-retirement because I could never see her not involved in people’s lives.”
