WHITTIER >> The Del Rey League softball championship will remain at St. Paul High School.
Myranda Bueno had three hits and four RBIs and the Swordsmen clinched a share of the league title Monday with a 6-4 victory over rival Bishop Amat at York Field.
Gabby Walker was steady in the circle and had a RBI single for the go-ahead run in the fifth for St. Paul, which improved to 19-6 overall and 10-1 in league play. The Swordsmen won the Del Rey League en route to the CIF-Southern Section Division III title last season.
Alyssa Barrera hit a two-run home run in the seventh and Miranda Larios had four hits and a RBI for the Lancers, who slipped to 16-7 and 9-2.

“This means a lot,” Bueno said. “We knew people were talking about us this year, about how we lost all our seniors from last year. But we’re back in it.”
St. Paul, after giving up the lead in the top of the fifth, regained it in the bottom of the inning. Sydney Kriemann was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning before Niko Walker walked. Gabby Walker, with runners on second and third and two outs, then lined a RBI single to right field for the 3-2 lead.
Jacilyn Candelas then walked with the bases loaded to make it 4-2 before Bueno singled to right-center for two runs and a 6-2 lead.
“I faced Samaria (Diaz) in practice on my travel ball team,” Bueno said. “I was just doing what I usually do.”
Bishop Amat tried to rally in the seventh. Rayne Barragan led off with a single and Barrera homered to right field to cut it to 6-4. Larios then singled with one out before Madeline Ramirez reached on a fielding error.
Gabby Walker then ended it by inducing Julia Menrad to pop out to short.

“It’s all about timely hitting,” Bishop Amat coach Kristen Dedmon said. (St. Paul) came up with runners on base and they were able to put the ball in play.
“We started to rally back in the last inning, but we needed to do that earlier in the game.”
Bishop Amat took the early lead, going up 1-0 in the second on a walk to Menrad, a single by Julia Valenzuela and RBI ground out by Sabrina Gonzalez.
St. Paul countered with two runs on a pop double by Bueno for a 2-1 lead. The Swordsmen then put it away with its four-run fifth.

Instead, the Brahmas took the first eight matches of the day to storm to a commanding 8-0 lead.
“Rhythm is huge in high school sports, so it helps when you get that,” Wells said of his team’s commanding start. “It’s always nice when players exceed expectations.”
Poly’s first win of the day came from Kristine Nguyen, who knocked off Kristine Martinez, 21-7, 21-9.

Baseball: St. Paul shuts out Bishop Amat, 1-0

By Stephen Ramirez

SANTA FE SPRINGS —
St. Paul High School began the week knowing it was three wins short of winning a Del Rey League baseball title.
The Swordsmen got a big one on Saturday.
Bryan De La Torre and Jacob Guzman combined on a four-hit shutout and host St. Paul took a big step toward the league championship with a 1-0 victory over rival Bishop Amat.
Juan Zuniga had a RBI bunt for the only run of the game for the Swordsmen, who improved to 14-12-1 overall and 7-3 in league play. They trail first-place Cathedral by a half-game going into the final week and can win a share of the league title with a sweep of the Phantoms, who they face at home on Monday and on the road on Wednesday. Cathedral also has a game vs. Serra, scheduled for next Friday.
Bishop Amat is still in the hunt at 14-12 and 8-4. The Lancers, who missed on a big scoring chance in the sixth, have completed their regular-season schedule, but can gain a piece of the league crown if St. Paul were to split with Cathedral.

“This is the position we want to be in,” St. Paul coach Casey Morales said. “You want to control your own destiny, and that’s what we got. Now we control our destiny to take on an opponent and take a league title. The work these guys have put in and progressed. We’re such a different team now than we were at the beginning of the year, I like our chances.”
St. Paul, which also had four hits, scored the only run in the third. The Swordsmen loaded the bases on singles by Fernando Alvidrez and David Castillo and a walk to Isaiah Donahue. Zuniga got down a squeeze bunt to score Alvidrez for a 1-0 lead.
De La Torre and Guzman took care of the rest.
De La Torre gave up four hits and struck out two in five innings before running into trouble in the sixth. Enter Guzman, who after loading the bases with a walk, got a ground out and strike out to keep the lead intact.

“I just had to come in throw strikes and produce,” Guzman said. “I just had to trust my mechanics and just let it go.“
Guzman got Amat in order in the seventh to win it.

“I don’t want to take credit from them, obviously the guy did enough,” Bishop Amat coach Joe Hoggatt said. “I think we chased, got a little excited, didn’t control the moment. But you have to give them credit.”

TRACK FINALS WEEK: Damien speedster Zach Shinnick is fastest soph in the state and league finals results and stories with Bob Ramsey

WEEKEND FEATURE ON DAMIEN SPEEDSTER ZACH SHINNICK: The 400 meters might be the toughest high school track and field event. Athletes need speed and endurance to be successful.
Zach Shinnick, the fastest sophomore in the state, manages to have both.
“Besides the 400 hurdles in college and the 800, it has to be the hardest race,” the Damien High School sophomore said. “You have to sprint and you have to have strength to finish. Not many people have the best of both. I’m blessed to have both.“My times are a little bit surprising. Not many people think someone can do this when you’re so young. I knew I could do it. I believe in my capabilities to run these times.”

RESULTS: Area track and field guru Bob Ramsey will keep everyone up to date with this week’s area league track and field finals. I’ll post links on this thread of any video from events you want to share along with links to results from this week’s finals. We start with the Palomares, which finished on Wednesday.

Palomares Baseball: Bonita gets must 7-5 win over Ayala; South Hills falls out of first with 2-2 tie with Claremont

Bonita got itself back in playoff contention and in the title hunt with a 7-5 win over Ayala, and needs to sweep the Bulldogs Friday in order to put itself in great position going into next week. South Hills’ inability to score runs is catching up with the Huskies, who could do no better than a 2-2 tie in 13 innings against struggling Claremont.That tie allowed Glendora to take sole possession of first with three games to go and leaves the Huskies in second, but only a half-game (or a tie) ahead of Ayala and Bonita with three games to go. Who knows how that tie will affect things down the stretch, but the truth is Glendora and South Hills control its own destiny because they finish the season with a head-to-head next week that will likely determine the league title. If one of the two gets swept, that could possibly knock it out the playoffs entirely. It should be fun.

Bonita 7, Ayala 5: Bonita High School’s baseball team gave up an early 4-0 lead, but the Bearcats scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and went on to defeat Ayala 7-5 Wednesday afternoon to move into a tie with the Bulldogs for third place in the Palomares League.Ayala (14-11, 7-5) got all five of its runs with two outs in the top of the fifth, using three of its four hits on the day to take a 5-4 lead.However, Bonita (19-8, 7-5) answered an inning later and reliever Nick Johnson retired the side in order for the second inning in a row to get the win for the Bearcats.
Glendora 2, Diamond Bar 0 — Ryan Beyer improved to 5-1, striking out six and Hayden Pearce got the save for the Tartans (20-6, 8-4) in a Palomares League victory. Glendora’s Raymond Romo went 3 for 3 with an RBI and Nolan Collett had an RBI.
South Hills 2, Claremont 2: The Wolfpack scored twice in the third and the Huskies answered back with two in the fourth and that was it as they settled for a 13-inning tie that was called because of darkness.

When the Palomares league was created, it was baseball that caught everyone’s attention. Throwing area heavyweights Bonita, Glendora and South Hills in the same league with Ayala, Claremont and Diamond Bar was sure to create some excitement, and it has, with three-teams tied for first and Bonita only a game back with four to play. It will all be settled by next week, but some good teams won’t make the playoffs. The biggest home-and-home series is Bonita and Ayala, with the Bearcats hosting today at 3:15 p.m. A Bearcats sweep could put them in title contention, however if they get swept they likely get knocked out of the playoffs completely.
Today’s schedule
Ayala at Bonita, 3:30 p.m.
Diamond Bar at Glendora, 3:30 p.m.
South Hills at Claremont, 3:30 p.m.
