Girls Athlete of the Week:
No Palomares League program will enter the playoffs with more momentum than Glendora.
The Tartans have won six consecutive league matches, and with one to go, the Tartans find themselves in a two-way tie atop the Palomares League standings with Bonita.
To get to that point, GHS needed a victory over the Bearcats this past Wednesday.
And they avenged a September 19th sweep at the hands of Bonita with a sweep of their own.
GHS won by scores of 25-23, 25-23 and 25-21.
Leading the way was a sophomore named Hailey Heflin.
Heflin had a match-high 21 kills in a victory that allowed Glendora to catch Bonita.
Two days later, Heflin had six kills in a 26-24, 25-13 and 25-23 sweep of visiting Ayala.
Up next: GHS will close out the regular season on Wednesday at second-place Claremont.

GHS, fresh off their bye week, got out to a 28-0 lead, before the Titans got a 31-yard TD run from AJ Jones in the […]

Girls Volleyball: San Dimas didn’t just win an outright Valle Vista League championship this week. The Saints steamrolled their competition along the way. SDHS wrapped up a perfect VVL run with Thursday’s 25-27, 25-16, 25-22 and 25-16 victory at Diamond Ranch. In 2021, the Saints won 30 of the 33 sets they played in league. […]
Thanks to Ryan Tomey for the photos and game info Football: St. Francis did everything it took to win Thursday’s Angelus League opener at St. Paul. The Golden Knights more than quadrupled what the St. Paul defense allows weekly, and the SFHS defense held the Swordsmen to 17 points under their average. St. Francis was […]

Girls Volleyball: Upland and Rancho Cucamonga headed into the final match of the regular season tied atop the Baseline League standings.

And UHS got some unexpected help from winless […]

The Golden Knights (5-1) will travel to Santa Fe Springs tonight in the league opener at St. […]
Girls Volleyball: West Covina didn’t come close to having the season they had envisioned. The Bulldogs headed into the final match of the 2021 season without a single Valle Vista League victory. To their credit, though, WCHS went out with a win. In fact, the Bulldogs got the road sweep of Covina. The Bulldogs won […]
