WEST COVINA —
It wasn’t perfect, but coming off a tough loss, winning mattered most for the Charter Oak High School softball team on Monday.
Cloe Ochoa had three hits and three RBIs and was steady in the circle to lead the Chargers to a 6-4 victory over Montebello in Chargers Classic first-round game at Big League Dreams Park.
Marissa Chavez also had two hits and a RBI for Charter Oak, which improved to 4-1. The Chargers will face Claremont, a 4-2 winner over Bishop Amat, in Wednesday’s quarterfinals at 3:30 p.m.
Destenie Castillo and Mariah Ginez each had a RBI for the Oilers, who slipped to 1-1. Montebello faces Bishop Amat in a consolation quarterfinal at 3:30 p.m. today.

Charter Oak coach Scott Higuera: “I thought Chloe pitched very well and we were able to bounce back from a tough loss on Saturday. It’s always important to forget the tough ones go and move on to the next game. I feel we did that. We didn’t’ play real crisp, like we like to, but overall, I’m happy with the win of course, but we need to get back to work at practice tomorrow and get ready to face Claremont on Wednesday.”

Montebello coach Laurie Capps: “I’m proud of the way we bounced back. It’s only our second game of the season. We didn’t falter, which I’m proud of. We hung in there. We did a good job.”

Charter Oak’s Cloe Ochoa: “I just wanted to give back to my team, since they help me so much on defense. I wanted to make it a little less stressful on the field for them.”

Glendora baseball falls to Santiago in championship of Don Lugo tournament, 5-4

By John Honell, correspondent
Glendora scored early but left 11 runners stranded on base and couldn’t hang on as Santiago (Corona) rallied for five runs in the final two innings to knock off the Tartans 5-4 for the championship of the Don Lugo Baseball Tournament on Monday afternoon.
It was the first loss of the season for the Tartans (4-1), who were the defending tournament champion, and ruined a good pitching performance by senior Ryan Beyer.
Beyer started the game and allowed only one hit and no runs in four and two-thirds innings but had to leave after 82 pitches. He hit one batter and gave up six walks to the Sharks.
“Ryan has quality stuff,” Tartans coach Dan Henley said. “When he throws strikes he’s really good. He’s been able to work out of those jams and keep his composure. He’s been great this year and has become a fine pitcher.”

CIF State Wrestling Finals: San Marino’s Julian Flores wins state title


By Stephen Ramirez

@SteveRRamirez on Twitter
BAKERSFIELD >>
Julian Flores, along with brothers Zander and Evan Wick, were the core of San Marino High School’s rise from afterthought to one of the top wrestling programs in the state.
Saturday, Flores climbed the highest mountain, scoring the 132-pound title at the CIF State wrestling championships at Rabobank Arena.
He’s San Marino’s first state champion.

“It’s unbelievable,” Flores said. “I really didn’t have a good postseason, but it all matters here in March. I just let it go. It was amazing.”
Flores title capped a stellar day for San Marino, which also had Zander Wick place second at 145, with Zander Silva (113), Luke Troy (152) and Evan Wick (138) all earning top-eight medals.
But Saturday was all about Flores, who opened the day with a 5-2 win over Pitman’s Angel Velasquez in the semifinals before scoring a 3-1 win over Mission Oak’s Jaden Enriquez in the final.
He used an escape with 1:25 left in regulation to force overtime before taking down Enriquez early in the extra period for the win.
“I wasn’t really panicking,” Flores said. “I knew I would get a takedown some how. I didn’t know what I was going to do exactly, but I just hit on something.”
Zander Wick, after beating Palm Desert’s Anthony Mantanona in the semifinals, was hoping to join his teammate atop the podium. But was denied by Poway’s Ralphy Tovar, 5-0.
“He definitely knew what I was going to do,” Wick said. He slowed me down and I couldn’t get any of my offense. I tried my all, but it just wasn’t good enough.
“As far as the season, I did really well this year. I didn’t place here last year. To make it to the finals is a huge accomplishment, but it’s always a bummer when you lose in the finals.”
It was also a strong weekend for area competitors, who scored 10 medals. The others were San Dimas’ David Gonzalez (113, third), San Marino’s Silva (113, fifth), Wick (138, fourth) and Troy (152, third); Northview’s Richie Casillas (120, seventh) and Ricky Padilla (160, sixth); Sonora’s Russell Rohlfing (126, sixth) and Bishop Amat’s Nigel Ruiz (145, seventh).
Gonzalez fought back from 6-3 loss to Clovis’ Justin Meija in Friday’s quarterfinals to win four consecutive bouts on Saturday. He beat De La Salle’s Donovin Guerrero, 4-2, to take third.
“(Third is) the closest thing you can get in the consolation bracket,” Gonzalez said. “I came here to take first. Lost a tough one in the quarterfinals yesterday, and came back strong today.
“Once you lose, you can’t do any better. I wrestled my heart out. I can believe how fast these past four years have flown by. Everything worked out the way it did.”
Northview’s Joe Dominguez (145) and Damien’s Patrick Sanchez (285) lost in the consolation fifth round and will not medal.

CIF State Wrestling Championships: Area bites back with six semifinalists

BAKERSFIELD >>
Area wrestlers, after not producing a state finalists the previous two seasons, had their day of redemption on Friday
Six locals advanced to the semifinals, with six others in line to earn top-eight medals highlighted the first day of the CIF State championships at Rabobank Arena.
San Marino, which won its first CIF-Southern Section Masters title last week, continued its upward trend, getting four to this morning’s semifinals. Julian Flores (132 pounds), who had advanced to the semifinals the past two seasons, led the contingent that also includes Zander Silva (113), Zander Wick (145) and Luke Troy (152).
Northview’s Ricky Padilla (160) and Sonora’s Russell Rohlfing (126) round out the area semifinalists.
The six will face morning matches beginning at 9:30 a.m. for a chance to advance to the finals, scheduled for 7:15 p.m.

“It’s great,” said Flores, of San Marino’s effort. “As a team, we want to be on top. Hopefully, we can continue to do well in this tournament.”
Still alive for a top-eight finish are San Dimas’ David Gonzalez (113); Northview’s Richie Casillas (120) and Joe Dominguez (145); San Marino’s Evan Wick (138); Bishop Amat’s Nigel Ruiz (145) and Damien’s Patrick Sanchez (285).
All but Dominguez advanced to the quarterfinals before losing. All will also need to win in the consolation fifth round, scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., to earn a top-eight medal.
Dominguez lost in the third round, but came back to win two consolation rounds to advance to today.
Flores was steady all day, scoring two close decisions before dominating Kenny Jones (Lassen), 10-1, in the quarterfinals.
“It’s nice to be back in the semis,” Flores said. “The last two years I made it to the semis and failed to do what I set out to do. This year, I have so much more confidence, and I feel a lot more confident for tomorrow.”
Silva was dominant at 113, earning a technical fall and a win by fall before beating Javier Alaniz (Clovis West), 10-2, in the quarterfinals.
Troy and Padilla advance after earning Master titles last week.

“It’s not my goal (to just get to the semis),” Padilla said. “I want to be at the top of the podium at the end of the day.”
Rohlfing advanced after losing in the quarterfinals last season.

“Last year, I lost in the quarters, so this is really big for me,” Rohlfing said. “I’m really excited. I’m just going to take it to him.”
Failing to qualify for today were Montebello’s Nico Gomez (106); Bishop Amat’s Sidney Flores (106); Northview’s Andres Hooper (126) , Andres Estrada (132) and Roger Arce (170); Sonora’s Josh Kawaguchi (132); California’s Richard Pocock (132); Charter Oak’s Antonio Zavala (152) and San Marino’s Aaron Padilla (160)

“I was just zoned into what I needed to do and my job,” Bolger said. “I really just focused on my mechanics to do what I needed to do to help the team.”
Going into the seventh inning, Bolger had a 5-0 cushion against the Mustangs, who had just put 16 runs on the board in their season opener. Walnut’s Andre Alvarez got a leadoff single with a ground ball through the right side to break up the no-hitter.

Tribune Top Ten Softball Preview: South Hills leads the pack

shillssoft
SOUTH HILLS NO. 1, click top ten preview: It will be an interesting year for softball pitchers with the possibility of some of the best in the San Gabriel Valley not throwing a complete game.
That’s because, coaches say, they have a wide variety of pitchers with different styles to choose from. Teams can throw a fastball, rise-style pitcher the first three-plus innings and when opponents finally get adjusted to that speed, coaches can turn around and offer a pitcher that has more movement on the ball.

“We’re looking forward to pitchers in different roles, starting and relieving, and all different kinds of styles,” Charter Oak coach Scott Higuera said of his plan to platoon his three pitchers. “We’ll use them all. That keeps them all in shape and we hope keeps on giving us a competitive edge.”
