Change at the top of Monarch Athletics

© East County Sports.com
SPRING VALLEY (6-18-15) — Longtime Monte Vista icon ZACH PECK has resigned his post as the Monarchs Athletic Director, effective this week.

Peck has served the past 13 years as Athletic Director after toiling 19 seasons as Monte Vista’s boys basketball coach.

“I think I’m really lucky to have coached at Monte Vista,” said Peck. “Fortunately I’ve been blessed with a flood of good athletes coming through our system. We’ve been very competitive. Against quality competition we had to play well to be successful.”

Peck took his Monarchs to the San Diego Section CIF finals in 1987 and 1992. They reached the semifinals in 1993 and 1996.

An English teacher, Peck played his prep basketball at St. Augustine and also at San Diego Mesa College under the late Jay Mulvehal. Peck spent five years coaching at USDHS (now Cathedral Catholic).

Peck has mentored several blue chip athletes, including WILL GOODLOE, MICHAEL WILEY, and his sons JASON and TREVOR PECK. Goodloe, a tight end in football and a center for the Monarchs basketball team is now a high school football coach in Texas, while Wiley is also an assistant high school football coach in the Lone Star state. Jason Peck is a doctor in North Carolina, while Trevor is attending law school in Georgia.

ALL IN THE FAMILY
ANESSA (PECK) CARROLL, Zach’s daughter, will take over her father’s post as the Monarchs Athletic Director. She is also an English teacher at the school.

Anessa is married to DONNIE CARROLL, who is the Athletic Vice Principal at Grossmont High. They have one child, four-year old ELLIE.

“I’ve been around sports my whole life and I don’t plan massive changes in the Monte Vista program,” said Anessa. “I’m proud of the way my Dad ran things, and I know he and my husband will always be there if I need support. I want our coaches to feel support from me.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL COACHING CHANGE
Anessa has already made one move.

Following the resignation of 10-year veteran girls basketball coach MICHAEL SKIBBE from the Monte Vista courts, Anessa Peck has hired MEGAN FORD as head coach of the girls basketball program and San Diego State standout SANDY WRIGHT as her assistant. Both coaches are Monte Vista alumni.

EL CAJON (6-7-15) — Competition in the East County this season was almost too close to measure.

Not that the local teams dominated anything in particular, as no team from the Inland Empire reached the semifinals except for Christian, which went on to take the San Diego Section Division III championship with a 29-2 record.

Undefeated in the Central League, the Patriots hit .414 (53-for-128) as a team in the playoffs.

Chistian’s MIKE MITCHELL was tabbed Coach of the Year.

The list of post-season awards were widespread after that. Helix pitcher-corner infielder LEE MUTTER was tabbed the EastCountySports.com Player of the Year, and Grossmont sophomore JACKSON HULETT was anointed Rookie of the Year.

Granite Hills pitcher KENNY LA PIERRE was named the Most Improved Player in balloting by the EastCountySports.com staff.

Christian outfielder JUSTIN LEDGERWOOD, who finished on a blazing hitting streak, came out of the shadows to earn Unsung Hero honors.

EL CAJON (6-11-15) — The competition in the East County was fast and furious with many players having outstanding seasons which made it all too close to call.

Many of the East County teams made the playoffs in pretty much every division with many making deep runs, highlighted by the Granite Hills Eagles, which went on to finish as runner-up in the San Diego Section Division II championship and finish with a 25-10 record.

Granite Hills’s ERIN COYNE was tabbed Coach of the Year as she guided the Eagles to the Championship game for the first time since 2008.

As for the other awards everything was pretty much for the taking. Patrick Henry second baseman SIERRA ALTMEYER and Valhalla outfielder DANIELLE UY were tabbed EastCountySports.com Co-Players of the Year.

When it came to the pitching this season, three pitchers stood out especially in crunch time and because of this they were tabbed Co-EastCountySports.com Pitchers of the Year.

MADISON “MJ” JAMES (Patrick Henry) who helped win the Eastern League crown and carry the Patriots deep into the Open Division of the playoffs, TESS EATON (West Hills) who had a big hand in the Wolf Pack winning the Grossmont Hills league crown and also was clutch in the Division One second round contest against Ramona, tossing all 12 innings in the victory especially when the Bulldogs had runners in scoring position with less than one down, and finally HALLE KYLER (Granite Hills) who pretty much dominated in the Division II playoffs especially in the Semi-Finals against Escondido, getting out of the bases loaded jam and in the final inning retiring the Cougars in order to propel the Eagles to the Division II Championship game.

Team San Diego drops both ends of double header

By Chris Davis
© East County Sports.com

EL CAJON (6-10-15) - In Tuesday's (June 9) Western Baseball Association double header action, Team San Diego just left too many chances on the bases as they lost to the Southern California Sklz at Grossmont College as they lost 9-3 and then 5-1 in six innings.

In game one of the twin bill, Team SD (5-6, 2-3 WBA) got on the board in the bottom of the first. TIM COLE (Univ. of Texas-Dallas) reached on a walk, a theme that would happen quite frequently, then proceeded to steal second base. SAM LAWRANCE (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)) brought him in with a single for a 1-0 lead.

Game one saw the two teams combined for 18 walks. Across the double header that total was pushed up to 26 walks. On the other side of the equation Team SD and the Sklz combined for the exact same total (26) for strikeouts.

"They were more aggressive at the plate than what we were," Team San Diego manager Vern Hasty said afterwards. "As a whole, while we did get a lot of walks, we just were not as aggressive at the plate as we needed to be."

Eggleston leads the Griffin sextuplet of All-Conference members

© East County Sports.com
SAN DIEGO (4-29-15) — Six Grossmont College Griffins have been tabbed as All-Pacific Coast Athletic Conference members.

MELISSA EGGLESTON and AMANDA HARTNET were both named to the First Team, while NICOLE BALINGER, KAYLA BROWNING and AMANDA “AJ” WYGANT were all named to the Second Team and BRIANA STRANDBERG was an Honorable Mention.

Eggleston was named to the 2014 All-PCAC First Team as well. This season, the sophomore shortstop led the Griffins in eight different categories including batting average (.339), at bats (121), runs (31), hits (41), triples (3), home runs (1, tied for lead), walks (18) and stolen bases (28, also led the conference).

Hartnet was a second team member last year and moved up to first team this season. Hartnet was one of only three Griffins to hit .300 or better (Eggleston and Browning). Amanda also hit the most doubles on the team (9) and along with Eggleston and Wygant was tied for the team lead in home runs. The sophomore third baseman was second on the team with 12 stolen bases and reached on 14 free passes.

The Griffin trio of second teamers also made up the battery for the Griffins. Balinger and Wygant were the only two pitchers this season for Grossmont and Browning caught every single inning this season for the Green and Gold. The trio combined for the most strikeouts as a staff in the conference and a top 25 mark in the State.

Balinger had a 2.95 ERA (4th in the PCAC) over her 177 2/3 innings pitched (led the PCAC). Nicole threw 21 complete games (2nd in the conference), and her 14 wins were also second most in the PCAC.

Eight Griffins named to All-PCAC team

SAN DIEGO (5-1-15) — Eight total Griffin baseball players were named to the All-Pacific Coast Athletic Conference team on Wednesday (Apr. 30).

DIEGO REYNOSO was named to the All-PCAC First Team catchers, JORGE GARCIA was named to the first base position and TANNER PERRY to the infield.

Reynoso, who was named to the same position last year, hit .313 (42-134) with a home run and 20 RBI over his 35 games. Reynoso’s best day at the plate came against San Diego City at Morley Field. On March 4, he went 4 for 5 with a pair of runs scored and a pair of RBI in the Griffins 10-2 victory. Defensively, Reynoso caught 42.9 percent of opponents attempting to steal. That statistic led the circuits catchers. Palomar’s Francis Christy was second, catching only a third of potential base stealers.

Garcia, a freshman out of Helix, led the Griffins in two of the three Triple Crown categories. The first baseman had a team high .397 (54-136) and four home runs. He came up a few RBI short of taking the crown, but he did have 20 RBI on the season to help the cause.

Perry, a freshman from Steele Canyon, captured the RBI title amongst his teammates with 32. The second baseman was second on the team with two home runs and a .374 (55-147) average. His 55 hits were a team high. The 20 double plays that he was involved with were tied for third in the conference.

Honorable mentions by the conference went to four sophomores: outfielder KEITH KRUEGER, utility player BRADY GROESBECK, pitchers NEIL LANG and JOE VISKAS. Freshman pitcher ANDREW SCHULTZ was also named an honorable mention.

Krueger and Lang were named to the same position during the 2014 season.

EL CAJON (6-18-15) — Two East County standouts have signed professional baseball contracts.

Slick fielding shortstop KYLE HOLDER, a product of Grossmont College and a 30th round draft pick of the New York Yankees, accepted a $1.8 million dollar signing bonus. That’s a healthy vote of confidence offered by the Yankees for Holder.

Meanwhile, UCLA right-handed pitcher CODY POTEET, a product of Christian High who was selected in the fourth round, signed with the Miami Marlins for $488,700.

MLB Season Debut

Corriea joins fellow San Diegan in Phillies rotation

PHILADELPHIA, PA (6-13-15) — Former Grossmont High – Grossmont College standout right-handed pitcher KEVIN CORRIEA had his career reborn on Friday (June 12) as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In his first start of this season as a member of the Phillies Corriea pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings.

Correia limited the Pirates to five hits and one walk. He struck out four and only one runner made it past third base in a start that seemed a distant memory at the end of a 13-inning affair the Pirates won 1-0 on Starling Marte's walk-off single.

His start was his first in the big leagues since he gave up seven runs (five earned) in three innings against the New York Mets as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Aug. 24, 2014.

MLB FIRST-YEAR PLAYER DRAFT

EL CAJON (6-11-15) — Four more East County athletes were selected in the third and final day of the Major League Baseball free agent draft on Wednesday (June 10).

Longtime East County baseball standout FRANK CALIFANO, a product of Steele Canyon, has been a record breaker at Youngstown State University (Ohio). The junior southpaw was drafted as a centerfielder by the Chicago White Sox with the 562nd pick in the 19th round.

Other East County athletes selected in the final round include Granite Hills third baseman JORDAN VERDON, who was the 719th pick in the 21st round by the New York Mets.

The list continues with El Capitan-Southwestern College graduate KEVIN GINKEL, who was taken as the 771st pick in the 26th round by the Boston Red Sox.

Not to be overlooked was ROBBY NESOVIC, a 6-foot-4, 210 pound corner infielder off the UC Santa Barbara campus in the 27th round by the Atlanta Braves. In his last season with the Gauchos he batted .342 with 40 RBI.

Nesovic played 3 years of varsity baseball and basketball for the Grossmont High Foothillers. As a pitcher in his junior year he posted a 1.02 ERA with an 11-0 record and hit .418 with 6 HRs. He helped Grossmont to 3 league championships and a CIF Section championship his sophomore year.

Under the leadership of MICKEY DEUTSCHMAN, Nesovic was a standout pitcher-infielder for the San Diego Stars semi-pro baseball team.

“We just try to make ballplayers. That’s all we care about,” said Deutschman. “Nesovic could make it as a pitcher or an infielder.”

During the 40-round draft, seven East County baseball players heard their name called. KYLE HOLDER went to the Yankees in the first round; pitcher CODY POTEET was selected in the fourth round by the Miami Marlins; catcher JESSE JENNER was the seventh round choice of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Poteet and Jenner both go on day two of the MLB Draft

© East County Sports.com
EL CAJON (6-10-15) — When CODY POTEET was a freshman at Christian High in 2009, he was one of the hardest throwing pitchers in San Diego County. Strikeouts was the name of his game as he registered 78 punchouts in 71 innings en route to a 9-1 record as a freshman. That was the spark of a bright future.

Poteet eventually received a scholarship to UCLA for the last three seasons.

The junior right-handed pitcher was selected on day two of the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft on Tuesday (June 9). The 6-foot-1, 188-pound Poteet was selected by the Miami Marlins as the 116th overall pick in the fourth round.

Poteet set career-bests in wins and ERA this season at UCLA, posting a 7-1 record with a 2.45 ERA in 27 appearances (13 starts). His 68 strikeouts ranked second on the team and he held opposing batters to a .230 average over 73.1 innings. A two-time Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention selection, Poteet has racked up 14 wins in his career at UCLA and currently ranks second on the team in career starts (39).

A Bonita native, Poteet was previously selected out of high school in the 27th round of the 2012 MLB Draft by the Washington Nationals.

JESSE JENNER CLIMBS LADDER

Former Steele Canyon High and Grossmont College standout JESSE JENNER, a senior catcher at the University of San Diego, was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals with the 221st pick in seventh round of Tuesday’s (June 9) second day of the 2015 MLB Draft.

Jenner, an All-WCC selection the past two seasons, posted a .314 batting average in 2015 with two home runs and 27 RBI, while playing exceptional defense (.995 fielding percentage).

Jenner, who resides in Jamul, batted .348 in his junior season, his first with the Toreros. He began his career at Cal State Fullerton, then transferred to Grossmont College, before winding up at USD for his final two years.

The final day featuring rounds 11-40 will be tomorrow, June 10, beginning at 9:00 a.m. PT. The final day can be watched live on MLB.com.

SAN DIEGO (6-9-15) — University of San Diego junior shortstop KYLE HOLDER, a product of Grossmont College, was selected in the first round, No. 30 pick overall, in the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft by the New York Yankees.

Holder is the seventh San Diego student-athlete to capture West Coast Conference Player of the Year honors since 2007 and the third consecutive.

Named to the 30-player Golden Spikes Award Watch List, Holder hit .387 with 13 doubles, two triples, one home run and 19 RBI during league play. The junior shortstop turned in a .976 fielding percentage, committing just three errors in 127 chances and contributed to 10 double plays during WCC games. Overall, Holder hit .348 with 78 hits, 14 doubles, two triples, four home runs, and had 31 RBI.

Holder is also currently a semi-finalist for the Brooks Wallace Award, which honors the nation's best collegiate shortstop.

If he elects to sign, Holder could make up to $1-million dollars signing bonus.

SACRAMENTO (6-4-15) — Sacramento State senior KIM GROSS, a product of Santana High, was the recipient of the National Scholar-Athlete Award announced by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA).

The award recognizes rowing student-athletes with a 3.5 or higher cumulative grade point average, are at least a sophomore athletically and have competed in an NCAA eligible boat in ­­­75 per cent of the team’s races.

In addition, Gross has received the honor three consecutive seasons, or every year she’s been eligible for the award. She became the sixth Hornet rower to earn the award three times.

Gross sat at stroke with the varsity eight with the first six races of the season, despite battling injuries. After missing two regattas due to injuries she returned during the final weekend of the season to stroke the second varsity eight to a Bronze Medal at the American Athletic Conference Championship.

A second team All-WIRA (Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association) pick last year, Gross has competed with the varsity eight or second varsity eight each of the last three years. She has won a number of academic accolades over that time, including being names to Conference USA’s Honor Roll last year.

Gross was a Grossmont Conference Player of the Year in girls basketball while at Santana.
