This is an exciting time of year if you are into high school sports, or sports in general. The Prep football season is coming to a close and many local teams are vying for CIF playoff spots while only South Hills (8-1) has played well enough to have one already guaranteed.

But it’s not just football that’s going on, volleyball and water polo are among the fall sports that are taking place and which is fielding excellent teams. In addition, the area colleges are also doing well. While Citrus has had a dissapointing football season, the Mt. SAC team is ranked No.1 in the state and is taking on Chaffey this saturday at 6 P.M. The Mounties are guaranteed a playoff birth at this point. A lot of the teams are going to the playoffs in various sports and the Mt. SAC Athletic department has captured an incredible 42 state championships and 21 since 2000.

I’m going to cover tonight’s game between Diamond Bar and Chino Hills. While it doesn’t have as many playoff implications like the Rowland-Walnut game, it should be a good send off to a great season. More people should head out to these games because like I said, it’s an exciting time of year for sports in the SGV and we should support our local athletes.

Water polo championship for Walnut?

So this is what it feels like to cover football on a Thursday night! I did my first thursday night game of the season tonight, a 21-20 victory for visiting Covina High over Ganesha. That’s in Pomona, for all of you out of that area that may not know.

Seriously, it feels like a friday night to me because I am so used to covering games then. Tomorrow it’s Chino versus Glendora High for me at Citrus College.

Also, I was covering Walnut High water polo for the Weekly this week. Check out this report  (page 16) on a CIF caliber team and some of the photos from the pool:

Walnut vs. Cathedral High on Monday Nov. 3. The Mustangs won 26-2.
