LA PUENTE — St. Paul High School felt a little embarrassed after losing to rival Bishop Amat in late March.
Thursday the Swordsmen did something about it.
Taylor Fogle hit a fifth-inning grand slam and Niko Walker had three hits as St. Paul enacted some revenge with a 6-4 victory over the host Lancers in a key Del Rey League softball game.
Myranda Bueno and Alexis Bermudez also had two hits each for the Swordsmen, who improved 14-6 overall and 6-1 in league play. Sabrina Gonzalez had three hits and Julia Valenzuela hit a home run for Bishop Amat, which slipped to 13-6 and 6-1.

The two teams are tied for first and will likely settle the league title on May 11.
The big inning for St. Paul came in the fifth when it countered Valenzuela’s homer with a four-run inning. The Swordsmen loaded the bases on singles by Bermudez and Walker and a walk to Sydney Kriemann. Fogle then followed with her slam to right-center field for a 6-2 advantage.

St. Paul’s Taylor Fogle: “We wanted this win so bad. We knew we had to win to at least compete with them for (the league championship). We came out today with so much energy, like this was ours. It was an amazing feeling to hit my home run. Everyone did great. It was amazing.”

Bishop Amat’s Julia Valenzuela: “We just tried to put the ball in play. (Both teams) put up a good fight. But we’ll be ready next time and we’ll get them.”

Undefeated Edgewood softball team is blowing away the competition … but how good are they?

edgewood
UNDEFEATED EDGEWOOD: For those who love trivia, you could probably win a few bucks asking when’s the last time the Edgewood High School softball team lost a league game.
Try 1988, that’s when the green-and-gold Edgewood Trojans closed its doors before re-emerging as a high school a few years back as the navy blue and gold Edgewood Lions.
Edgewood sports has gradually acquainted itself with the San Gabriel Valley again. The school doesn’t have a football team, but its softball team is the talk of the town, or at least the school, though few really know what to make of it.
For example, Edgewood was ranked No. 4 in last week’s CIF-Southern Section Division 5 softball poll, then proceeded to sweep Bassett, 23-0 and 20-0.
The pollsters were so impressed with the undefeated Lions’ week of work that they dropped them to No. 6 in this week’s poll.
Edgewood is 12-0, but there is some skepticism that comes with it because the Lions didn’t participate in any pre-league tournaments, nor have the Lions played anyone that would allow you to compare them to the best in their division, or the best in the SGV.

Edgewood’s Idalis Jimenez matches CIF-SS record with four homers in a game

Edgewood junior Idalis Jimenez matched a CIF-Southern Section record with four home runs in Wednesday’s 21-0 victory over Pomona, including two in the same inning in a mercy-shortened five inning game. jimenezJimenez belted a two-run homer in the first, two three-run homers in the second inning, and a solo shot in the fourth to finish with nine RBIS. Only four other softball players in section history had ever hit four homers in a single game prior to Jimenez’s feat. The last to do it was Montclair Prep’s Tamra Freedman 21-years ago in 1994. None of Jimenez’s homers were inside-the-park jobs, she belted all of them over the fence.

CIF-SS RECORD FOR HOMERS IN A SINGLE GAME

High School coaches react to NFL’s billion dollar concussion settlement

1025_spt_sgt-l-shills-kb6LOCAL REACTION: A federal judge’s approval Wednesday of an NFL plan to pay $1 billion over 65 years to settle thousands of concussion lawsuits sent a ripple effect all the way down to the high school level.
Opinions varied among local prep football coaches, who are left trying to figure out what this means for the future of the sport.
Even those who might be considered experts concede there is more than one side to the story.
“There is no doubt that we need to take concussions more serious than coaches did 20 years ago, even 10 years ago,” said Hesperia Oak Hills High coach Chris Fore, who is also a consultant to coaches nationwide through ChrisFore.org and EightLaces.org. “The medical field is using technology to help us know more and more about the negative effects of repeated hits to the head.
