One more meeting between St. Paul, La Serna coaches

The softball coaches from St. Paul and La Serna will face off for the fifth time since March when the Red and Blue teams meet Wednesday at York Field for the Rotary Club of Whittier’s All-Star Softball Classic.
St. Paul’s Jim Maier and his staff will coach the Red all-stars while Mike Reed and Mike Orona of La Serna will lead the Blue team in the 11th installment of the postseason, senior-only contest. The Swordsmen and Lancers met four times during the just-completed season, and split those meetings, although St. Paul scored the biggest victory by defeating La Serna 2-1 in the CIF-SS Division 3 final.
The Red all-stars will feature Del Rey League MVP Lovie Lopez and Pitcher of the Year Koreen Orozco from St. Paul, Del Rio League MVP Trisha Trujillo of Cal and Montebello’s Evelyn Hernandez, the Almont League Pitcher of the Year. The Blue side will have Almont League MVP Byanka Diosdado of Schurr and Del Rio League first teamers Molly Bourne, Dana De La Torre and Dani Garcielita from La Serna.
First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m.
The 18th edition of the baseball all-star game will follow at 6 p.m. La Serna’s Tony Gonzales will coach the Red all-stars, with Suburban League MVP Jeff Murray from La Mirada leading the way. Del Rio League Defensive Player of the Year Tony Ceron of La Serna is also part of the Red lineup.
The Blue all-stars will be coached by Pioneer’s Bobby Ramirez. Del Rio League Player of the Year Ruben Pinedo and DRL Offensive POY Fermin Beza, both from Cal, will play as well as Del Rio League first teamers Jerald Johnston (Cal), Jesse Perdomo (Cal), Robert Barraza (Cal), Esteban Solis (El Rancho), Justin Gonzalez (El Rancho), Ryan Palomar (El Rancho) and Josh Prickett (Pioneer).
