Highland going for fifth section title today

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Antelope Valley, seeded third, opens against Los Padres League runner-up Nipomo. Should the Antelopes win, they will face the Burroughs Ridgecrest-Magnolia of Anaheim winner in the second round. San Andreas League champion Cajon of San Bernardino is seeded second, and Orange League champion Western of Anaheim is seeded fourth. Highland won the Southern Section overall and Dual Meet titles in 1997 and added Div. VI Dual Meet titles in 2003 and 2004. Highland rebounds: Four days after losing the Golden League championship to visiting Antelope Valley in a 29-29 draw, then a ninth-criteria tiebreaker, Highland bounced back with a strong effort in the league finals at Quartz Hill. Coach Mike Young’s 12-time league team champions won four individual titles – Jon Vaughn at 119 pounds, Josh Purpus (125), Gerry Galaviz (135) and Ryan Gifford (152) – and qualified wrestlers at all 14 weight classes for the Feb. 17-18 Central Division individual championships at Brea Olinda High. Longtime Southern Section wrestling power Highland, denied a fourth consecutive Golden League championship this season, takes aim at a fifth section title today, when the Bulldogs and league champion Antelope Valley compete in the Div. V Dual Meet finals. The 16-team competition, scheduled for an 11 a.m. start at Kaiser High in Fontana, includes defending champion Royal of Simi Valley, which has gone undefeated in the rugged Marmonte League for three consecutive seasons. Royal has been ranked No. 1 in Div. V all season, is top-seeded in today’s single-elimination championship tournament and will face Highland in the second round, should both teams win their opening matches. Royal draws Montview League runner-up Azusa in the first round, and Highland starts against host Kaiser, the Sunkist League champion. The Bulldogs also totaled a team-high 248 points in the seven-team competition that produced four postseason qualifiers at each weight. Antelope Valley finished second at 214, and Lancaster was third at 154. “I was real proud of our effort,” Young said. “Teams, when the lose a big one late like that, can go two different directions – improve or cave in. They set the tone for this weekend, and I don’t think we’re through wrestling. “We might not take it all, but i like to think we have a chance. I don’t think I’d like to be any team wrestling us.” Six A.V. champs: Antelope Valley won six individual titles, including the first by four-year starter and three-year captain Eric Timson, who went 3-0 in the 140 weight class to improve to 30-3 for the season and 141-33 for his career. Timson, who came within one victory of qualifying for the State Meet last year, had finished second in league the past three seasons. Other A.V. league champions were Willie Carranza (103), Timothy Javines (145), Myron Castro (160), Justin Paulson (171) and Luis Michel (189). Coach Ron Coleman’s Antelopes qualified wrestlers at 10 weights for the Central divisionals. Breakthrough: Palmdale’s Giovanni Sarran, who had suffered three of his four season losses against Jason Fonzi of Quartz Hill, defeated Fonzi 14-1 in the heavyweight title match to improve to 36-4 for the season and 2-3 against Fonzi. In other strong season rivalries, Lancaster’s Irvin Garcia defeated Highland’s Paul Petros in the 130 final after they had split in four previous matches, and Lancaster’s Kevin Plunkett (42-3) scored an overtime win over Littlerock’s Ryan Cambaliza after winning 1-0 in their league dual-meet matchup. Lancaster’s Jeff Merrill took the other league title, taking the 112 title after winning league at 103 last season. He and Highland’s Josh Purpus (125), who won a third consecutive title, were the only repeat champions.

Poly flies to Seattle

first_img The No. 3 (according to USA Today) and 1-0 Jackrabbits take on the No. 17 and 1-0 Wolverines in an 8 p.m. game at Qwest Field tonight that was made possible because of the ambition of the four-time, state-champion Bellevue program and its booster organization’s deep pockets. It’s an opportunity that coach Raul Lara and the Jackrabbits were more than willing to latch on to. SEATTLE — The best thing about all of the hyperbole that trumpets a “big” upcoming sports event is this: Eventually, people stop talking and writing about it, and the eagerly anticipated game is actually played. The showdown between nationally ranked football teams from Poly High and Washington powerhouse Bellevue has finally reached that point. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “This is a pretty good challenge,” Lara said Thursday morning, less than a day before a Poly party of 70 coaches, players, trainers and co-principal Shawn Ashley was to board a 6:45 a.m. Seattle-bound flight at the Long Beach Airport. “We’ll throw our guys onto the field and see what happens.” The Wolverines, who opened their season with a 35-0 victory over Mount Rainier on Sept. 2 (in essence, having two weeks to prepare for tonight’s game), grabbed a lot of national attention a year ago by bringing a 39-20 halt to Concord De La Salle’s 151-game winning streak. Lara and his players noticed, too. He and his staff took a peek at the videotape of the Bellevue win over De La Salle even before the contract for tonight’s game was signed last spring. center_img And they also dissected the tape of the Wolverines’ opener two weeks ago. They’re impressed. “There is no doubt that they have a good program over there,” Lara said. Indeed. In the five seasons with Butch Goncharoff as its head coach, the Bellevue program has gone a collective 57-5 with three of the defeats, all in overtime, coming in 2000. The Wolverines lost a lot of quality players including University of Washington freshmen in running back J.D. Hasty and linebacker E.J. Savannah from a 13-0 team that is considered by some the best ever in Washington. The cupboard isn’t bare on the Bellevue campus, obviously, or Lara would have never gotten calls from Dave Mutzel of the program’s booster club or Goncharoff last winter suggesting the game. Slick, quick and savvy quarterback Eric Brock anchored the team’s Wing-T attack to the tune of 460 rushing yards against De La Salle and has a multitude of take-it-to-house threats in backs Keith Rosenberg (who ran almost 400 yards in last season’s state semifinal and championship games), Anthony McQueen and Thomas Zaffino. Six-foot-5, 290-pound Stephen Schilling, a major target of USC coach Pete Carroll, clears a lot of real estate up front for Brock & Co. and will also do his best to disrupt Poly’s offensive rhythm tonight. The Wing-T, a quick-hitting offensive scheme based heavily on misdirection and the ability to exploit a defense’s over-pursuit of the football, is used with a great deal of success by many programs in Southern California, including Dominguez and Esperanza (a team beaten by the Jackrabbits in 2004 CIF Southern Section Division I semifinals). Goncharoff said his program’s version of the offense “isn’t like most other Wing-T’s’ and Lara agreed with that assessment . “They open up their splits (between offensive linemen) a little more than other teams to try to create more (blocking) angles,” he said. As is he case when facing any option attack, the key to keeping the Wolverines’ attack in check will be in the Poly defenders “being aggressive, but not too aggressive,” Lara said. “We have to be disciplined and take care of our assignments.” Goncharoff and his staff and players perused the tape of Poly’s 49-27 victory over Corona of Centennial a week ago tonight and apparently got their hands on celluloid of the Jackrabbits from last season, too. And, as is always the case when coaches and players about to face a Poly team are asked about the Jackrabbits, the Wolverines seem almost glassy-eyed in reverence to their individual and collective speed. “The first thing you notice about them is their incredible team speed,” Goncharoff said earlier this week in his Bellevue High office. “It’s impossible to simulate that in practice. We’re going to have to try to adjust to it, but hopefully, we’re not down 21-0 before we adjust.” Isn’t there always a “but’ in a matchup of this magntitude? “But,” Goncharoff said, “on the flip side, they will have to adjust to the speed and way in which we run our Wing-T. I’ll say this: We’re going to have to keep the ball as long as we can and we, need sevens (touchdowns) and not threes (field goals).” So that is that. Now it’s time to do the playing. Bellevue boosters’ spokesperson Mutzel reported an approximate presale figure mid-Thursday afternoon of “something north of 2,000 tickets’. The booster organization rented Qwest (home of the Seattle Seahawks) and a crowd of about 6,000 is needed for the group to break even on its investment, which also included fronting all of Poly’s travel and accommodations. Mutzel is hopeful that, even with approximately 100 other Seattle-area teams in action tonight “we can draw something in the range of 8 to 10,000.” The game is being televised live by the Fox Sports Network, not only in Southern California but throughout Washington and the rest of the Pacific Northwest as well. Mutzel, and the school’s athletic director, Chris Hoffman, are counting on the number of those who stay away from Qwest tonight because of the option of watching it in real time on television will be easily outnumbered by those lured to the game in part because of the week-long, nightly promotion of the showdown by Fox’s Northwest outlet. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dreier praises votes

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Editor’s note: It’s Politics reports Saturdays on the ins and outs of Whittier-area politics and city government. Local congressional members were at odds in recent votes on immigration and deficit reduction. The split was along partisan lines, with Republicans in support and Democrats in opposition. Rep. David Dreier, R-Glendora, praised the House of Representatives’ 239-182 vote Dec. 16 approving legislation to strengthen the nation’s border security. “It provides the resources and technology necessary to effectively combat illegal immigration,” Dreier said. “It also addresses the issue of workplace enforcement, another critical aspect of the problem.” The bill includes an amendment by Dreier that mandates the construction of specific security fencing in the five most vulnerable border zones totaling 698 miles. Rep. Gary Miller, R-Brea, also voted for the bill, while Reps. Linda Sanchez, D-Lakewood, and and Hilda Solis, El Monte, voted no. Rep. Grace Napolitano, D-Santa Fe Springs, didn’t vote. “As the daughter of immigrants I take great offense that such a mean spirited, anti-immigrant piece of legislation was approved by the House of Representatives,” Sanchez said. “America deserves better than this badly thought out bill,” Sanchez said. “This bill is not about border security or national security. It just provides a false sense of security – failing to respond to the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, leaving our ports of entry exposed, and doing nothing meaningful to fix our broken immigration laws.” Another split was over Dec. 19’s 212-206 vote to approve legislation to reduce the deficit. All three Democrats voted no, while Dreier supported it. Miller didn’t vote. “This bill achieves real savings through common sense reforms of these critical programs,” Dreier said. “Enacting this reform package into law will slow the growth of entitlement programs, make more progress toward reducing the deficit, and ensure that benefits and services are available to those who are truly in need.” REPUBLICAN MEETING: Andy Ramirez, chairman of Friends of the Border Patrol, and David Hernandez, chairman of the Committee to Support the Los Angeles County Seal Ordinance, will speak at the 7:30 a.m. Jan. 6 meeting of the Southeast chapter of the Los Angeles County Lincoln Clubs. The event will be held at Geezer’s Restaurant, 12120 Telegraph Road, Santa Fe Springs. Cost is $25 per person. For reservations, write LACLC, 6055 E.
