In case anyone happened to miss it, former St. Paul High standout Anthony Aguilera (class of 05) recently signed a free agent contract with the Colorado Rockies organization.
Some of the clutter atop both the Del Rio League boys and girls basketball standings will clear today in what might be the biggest day of the first half of league play.
perhaps the biggest upset in the young Del Rio League boys basketball season.
Last Friday, Pioneer (5-15 overall, 1-2 in league) upset host Whittier, 55-54. The loss created a four-way tie for first place between Whittier (9-9, 2-1), California (8-8, 2-1), La Serna (9-10, 2-1) and Santa Fe (6-9, 2-1).
As was rumored here earlier on the blog, John Glenn High School head football coach Anthony Wilson officially resigned his post at Saturday’s Glenn Football Banquet.
The rumors that Wilson is on his way to St. Paul are also true, although it is not known under what capacity he will serve.
I just wanted to give a quick intro.
My name is Andrew Campa and I’ve officially taken over this blog as of today. I’m sorry for the delay in posts as it’s just a one-man gang here for a while.
I’m excited to take over the position of preps sports editor and look forward to opening up this blog.
It’s Andrew Campa.
I’m sorry for the delay in making this post. I’ve been overwhelmed with calls and questions that I thought I’d answer some here about Roger.
As was published in Wednesday’s paper, Whittier Daily News Prep and Area College Editor Roger Murray officially resigned from duty effective Tuesday.
Here’s the story – Murray’s Retirement
It was a shock to the staff since he only hinted on Thursday of a possible intent to call it quits.
He tendered his resignation on Monday with Tuesday being his last day at work. I will miss Roger and I’m sure many others out there share the same sentiment. I’ve received quite a few emails and have answered many of the same questions in person or over the phone, so I wanted to do a quick Q & A to help clarify any issues.
