Lancers’ effort in passing league barely makes the grade for coach

Ever the teacher, Margarito Beltran gave his team a “C” for its performance in 7-on-7 passing drills Tuesday evening after Corona Santiago, Sonora, Mountain View and Mark Keppel visited the Friendly Hills campus.
Beltran felt the Lancers didn’t compete at the level he’d like to see, making the same mistakes on a consistent basis and not correcting them. Last week, he felt La Serna did a much better job competing when it faced teams like Serra, Dorsey and Westlake at Saugus High.
“We should have done better (Tuesday),” Beltran said. “This team is trying to find its own identity from last year’s team, and it’s a process. … But I wasn’t very happy with the way we competed.
“We made too many mistakes, and we didn’t correct those mistakes. … Overall, I wouldn’t give u more than a ‘C.’”
Cantwell-Sacred Heart will continue its summer-long Wednesday 7-on-7 drills when Montebello visits tonight, and Whittier will host Villa Park at 5 p.m. Thursday. On July 12, El Rancho will host its Rumble at the Ranch, which will feature St. Bonaventure, San Clemente, Bonita, Palmdale and others.
On the same day, Santa Fe will host the 25-team Tournament of Champions, which will feature 7-on-7 passing and lineman competitions as well. Teams from across Southern Californa, Arizona and Utah will compete.
