LAKESIDE (8-25-12/Updated 8-27-12) — El Capitan High alum JORDAN ABRUZZO has accepted the major challenge of attempting to fill the shoes of record-breaking coach STEVE VICKERY as he accepted the varsity coaching position late last week.

“I think he is a great selection as he knows our program and our community very well,” noted Vickery, who is the second all-time winningest baseball coach in the San Diego CIF with a mark of 647-345-5 (.651).

Abruzzo is a 2003 graduate of El Capitan . In his final two yearsm the Vaqueros catcher batted a combined .444 (99-for-223) with 15 home runs and 89 RBI. He was a member of the Vaqueros 2003 San Diego Section Division II championship ballclub, twice earning first-team All-East County honors with the Vaqueros in 2002 and 2003.

“Jordan has a great background in the game and has a passion for teaching players at the high school level,” Vickery said.

Abruzzo was a four-year starter at the University of San Diego where he set and still holds several baseball records. He played 3 1/2 years in the NY Mets farm system.

Last year, he served as an assistant on head coach JAMES DAVIS' staff at Granite Hills.

“Jordan possesses the quality and attributes needed to run a successful program,” Vickery said. “We’re glad to have him aboard.”

EL CAJON (8-21-12) — The San Diego Christian College Hawks picked up another local signee when MARK YOUNG accepted a baseball scholarship.

A 6-foot, 165-pound left-hander out of Helix High, Young will be pitching for former Major League stars Chris Bando (Cleveland, Detroit, Oakland) and Doug Jones (Milwaukee, Cleveland, Baltimore, Oakland, Houston, Philadelphia, Chicago Cubs).

A year ago, Young posted a 5-2 record with one save, a 2.46 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 48.1 innings as a senior for the Highlanders (21-11 overall).

Hawks happenings – TAYLOR EICHHORST has been signed off the roster of the San Diego Stars semipro baseball team to continue his collegiate career at San Diego Christian, which is a member of the Golden State Atheltic Conference.
Wolverines sign Romano

EL CAJON (8-17-12) — Versatile Valhalla High senior RAMSEY ROMANO has accepted a baseball scholarship to the University of Michigan.

“I’m really excited about it,” said Romano, the Norsemen’s varsity quarterback, shortstop and closer.

Romano was taken by surprise when he was approached by Wolverines head coach Erik Bakich at the Area Code tryouts early this summer.

“That is where they first saw me,” Romano said. “Nobody said anything to me that day.”

His next contact with Michigan was at a Los Angeles Angels elite tryout camp at Anaheim Stadium.

After that he was offered a recruiting trip to the Ann Arbor campus last weekend (Aug. 11-12). It was at that point that he made a verbal commitment to Michigan .

“They recruited me as a shortstop,” Romano said. “This is going to be a great experience. There is no University of Michigan on the West Coast. That’s what makes me proud to be a kid from Southern California getting a chance like this.”

Bottom line is few athletes from SoCal get a crack at Big 12 competition in any sport.

“ Ann Arbor is a college town for a big school which is what I’ve always been looking for,” Romano said. “I want to play in the big time... where sports is of major importance.”

And so he will.


Rustich selected to Area Code Games competition

LONG BEACH (7-30-12) — Grossmont High senior pitcher/ corner infielder DEREK RUSTICH is the only East County athlete selected to participate in the Area Code Games which begins a six-day run on Sunday (Aug. 5) at Blair Field.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Rustich is one of nine San Diego CIF athletes playing for the Texas Rangers-sponsored ballclub in the national tryout camp. He will play his college ball at Texas Tech.

More than 100 pro scouts and college coaches are expected to attend the event.


Monte Vista skipper tabbed to head Hillers

EL CAJON (7-26-12) — One of East County’s most prestigious baseball coaching jobs was filled on Wednesday (July 25).

Monte Vista High baseball coach CHAD WILLIAMS, an athletic standout at Granite Hills and Chico State during his playing days, has left his Monarchs post after two seasons to take the Foothillers’ reins, according to Grossmont High vice principal DONNIE CARROLL.

“We got the guy we wanted to lead our program,” said Carroll, who was a second round draft pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers during his playing days at Granite Hills. “He’s a good one.”

You belong in the City
Christian Patriots relocated

HILLCREST (7-27-12) — The San Diego City Conference, following the lead of other conferences throughout the CIF San Diego Section, will soon divide its 20-member schools from three leagues to four in many sports for the 2012-13 school year. Most notably, baseball will split up, meaning Christian High will be placed in a new league.

The City Conference will keep its three long-standing leagues – Eastern, Western and Central – while adding the new City League. In baseball, those teams will feature Christian, Serra, Coronado, Lincoln and Clairemont.

"The Eastern League will be the power league with all of the city's largest schools by enrollment or the most competitive schools," noted Serra baseball coach SCOTT "Hoppy" HOPGOOD. "Those teams are Patrick Henry, Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch, Cathedral Catholic and St. Augustine."

Many argued for years that because private schools have an advantage since they are allowed to recruit, perhaps they should be placed in a higher division for CIF playoff competition, despite official enrollment figures. The first step to such realignment has been taken by City Conference officials with the new "power" league.

The Western League will
remain relatively intact with La Jolla, Point Loma, Mission Bay, University City, Madison, and Point Loma. The Central League features Crawford, Hoover, Kearny, Morse and San Diego.

Meeting the CIF minimum of five teams in all four leagues, the conference is also guaranteed at least four CIF playoff berths with four league champions, which could affect which schools gain first-round home games.

The North County Conference went to four leagues recently, while the Metro Conference (South Bay schools) now has three leagues in football.

EL CAJON (7-8-12) — The annual Patsy Earley Scholarship winners have been announced. WILL SOTO and JON HOWARTH each received financial awards which will go toward furthering their educations. Both graduated from Grossmont High in 2011.

The scholarships are given to Grossmont High baseball players “who embody the qualities my mom loved – strong work ethic, hard work, family values and selflessness,” said former Foothillers baseball coach JIM EARLEY.

Funds are raised through donations and activities each year to support the scholarships, which were created in memory of Earley’s mother, who for many years ran the Foothillers’ concession stand, which has been named “Patsy’s Place.”

Hipolito takes West Hills baseball post

By Bill Dickens

SANTEE (7-8-12) — CORDELL HIPOLITO is familiar with East County and Grossmont Conference baseball. That’s why he should be a perfect fit as head coach of the West Hills High baseball program.

Hipolito replaces JASON FOWLER, who resigned after three seasons with a composite 38-50 record. His club finished 18-15 in the rugged Grossmont Hills League last year.

“The move to West Hills made a lot of sense for me,” Hipolito said. “My son played for Coach Fowler and graduated in 2011. Through my son's experiences I have witnessed the tremendous growth of the program under Fowler. My daughter has been a member of the Wolf Pack softball program and will be going into her senior season. With both my kids having developed through Little League and ASA in Santee we have always been a part of this community.

A year ag,o Hipolito led University City to the Division V championship of the Lions Tournament, and the San Diego CIF semifinals before being eliminated by eventual champion Cathedral Catholic.

“We were ranked as high as No. 13 in the county, and as high as No. 4 in Division III (during the regular season),” Hipolito noted.

Other stops during Hipolito’s coaching career include San Diego Mesa College (1996-2002) and UCSD (2003-04). As an assistant coach, Hipolito helped lead the Tritons to the first CCAA conference tournament appearance in school history.

“I served as the hitting instructor and developed and implemented the offense that broke the program record for hits in a season,” Hipolito said.

UCSD was ranked as high as No. 13 in the country for NCAA Division II that year.

Hipolito moved over to Southwestern College (2005-09).

“We made an incredible run of four playoff appearances that included two super regionals and a state championship game in 2008,” Hipolito recalled of the Jaguars, who finished ranked No. 2 in California and No. 12 in the country for 2008.

In a return to UCSD (2010-2011), Hipolito helped the Tritons, the No. 1-ranked Division II team in the country, reached the NCAA national championship game in 2010. UCSD finished with a remarkable 51-9 record in 2010. UCSD was the CCAA champion in 2010 and 2011. The Tritons reached the regionals in 2011, two wins shy of a third consecutive college world series appearance.

“I have been a major contributor in every program I have been a part of,” Hipolito said. “It has not been a coincidence that each one of the programs has shown marked improvement during my tenure. I have left all the programs in better condition than when I got there.”


Patriots among Top Chiefs

Special to East County Sports.com
EL CAJON (6-24-12) — The San Diego Chiefs, a team made up mostly of Patrick Henry High baseball players, had a tough road in capturing the silver medal of the Quality Baseball Tournament this weekend, The Chiefs had to play three games on Sunday (June 24) to defeat Silvas Academy and No. 1 seed San Diego Legacy to reach the finals. Coach Nick Farren’s Chiefs lost to the Bonita Vice, 12-11, in the title game.

The Bonita Vice, under head coach George Lara, drew a bye in the first round on Sunday (June 24), then defeated the Southern California Bandits in the semis to make it to the championship.

The Chiefs had standout performances from center fielder Garret Jarvis and right fielder C.J. Cauzza. Andrew Lopez led the attack for the Bonita Vice with a 3-run home run and a solid 5-inning pitching performance.

In the 16U division of the same event, the San Diego Monsters walked away with a championship without allowing a single run in the tournament. All three of the Monsters games ended early via the mercy rule. The runner-up in the 16U division was the San Diego Legacy (2-2).

Conyers named among state's best by Cal-Hi Sports

© East County Sports.com
STOCKTON (6-23-12) — The dominant year for high school baseball in the CIF San Diego Section was reflected in the California state players of the year, as announced Friday (June 22) by Cal-Hi Sports, a division of ESPNHS.

Heading the list is El Capitan High senior TROY CONYERS, the Medium Schools player of the year.

Conyers was the runner-up for the award and for Juniors Classic player of the year to Bishop Amat's Rio Ruiz in 2011. A blood clot ended the season early for Ruiz, but Conyers was already in the midst of an outstanding senior season.

Although Ty Moore of Santa Ana-Mater Dei and Luke Eubank of Newbury Park were the primary two finalists for Mr. Baseball, Conyers was not far behind. He was named the CIF San Diego Section Player of the Year for a second straight season after leading El Capitan to the Division III title game.

Conyers batted .394 with five homers and 26 RBIs. He also went 9-2 on the mound with a 1.02 ERA and whiffed 131 batters in 82 innings.

In his prep career, Conyers was a four-year pitching ace, broke a school record with 313 strikeouts and played on two Team USA summer squads that won gold medals in international competition.

The last medium schools’ player of the year from San Diego was Ryan Wilkins of Cathedral Catholic in 2009.

Meanwhile, Moore was tabbed Mr. Baseball in California for 2012 by Cal-Hi Sports, the leading authority for high school sports in the state.

In the Small Schools division, Santa Fe Christian pitcher Nolan Gannon was tabbed the state's best. The right-hander was the top San Diego County player selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft earlier in the month after leading the Eagles to the CIFSDS Division IV championship.

There have been only four State Small Schools Player of the Year picks from the San Diego Section since 1960, but all four are somewhat recent. The other three are Nick Noonan of Francis Parker (2007), BRIAN SCHROEDER of Christian (2003) and Ben Cordova from Marian Catholic (1998).

In the state by year in school, Vista 's Brett Seeburger was tabbed Junior or the Year, while catcher Alex Jackson of Rancho Bernardo was Sophomore of the Year.


Smith ticketed to UCSB

© East County Sports.com
EL CAJON (6-21-12) — One of the most versatile athletes in Helix High history, KACY SMITH has cast his future by accepting a baseball scholarship to the University of California at Santa Barbara.

The highly decorated football-baseball player who stands in at 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, realizes his future is in baseball.

“Santa Barbara is getting a really great baseball player,” said Helix head coach COLE HOLLAND. “He’s a highly skilled athlete who can play either sport – does every thing you want as a player. While baseball is his game, he’s a tremendous student athlete and fortunately for the baseball coaches he chose their sport.”

A three-time first team selection for All-East County and All-Grossmont Hills League, Smith was also named All-SDCIF as a junior and a senior.

His football endeavors include being named the All-SDCIF Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. The hard-hitting linebacker also earned first team defense as a junior and Defensive Player of the Year in the Grossmont Hills League as a senior.

“You won’t find a better student athlete than Kacy Smith,” said Holland of the 3.50 GPA student.

Retiring El Capitan baseball coach Steve Vickery
named Cal-Hi Sports' California Coach of the Year

© Special to East County Sports.com
STOCKTON (6-18-12, 5:05 p.m.) — In 33 years of coaching high school baseball, STEVE VICKERY of El Capitan has won many awards, including the 2011 California Interscholastic Federation Model Coach award and the 2011 California Baseball Coaches Association Coach of the Year honors.

Now, after leading his Vaqueros to a school record 31 wins (seven losses) and a runner-up finish in the CIF San Diego Section Division III playoffs, the affable Vickery, who is retiring with 647 victories, has been named the 2012 ESPN Cal-Hi Sports State Coach of the Year.

Vickery joins his younger brother, retired Santana of Santee girls basketball coach WADE VICKERY, as the winningest siblings in California prep history. Wade had 610 victories in 26 years, giving the brothers 1,257 wins combined.

Wade’s name is already on the list of winningest girls basketball coaches in the Cal-Hi Sports state record book. Now the elder Vickery will get his name in the book on the list for most career wins in baseball. He joins San Diego Rancho Bernardo’s Sam Blalock, the 1989 State Coach of the Year, now retired San Diego Mission Bay ’s Dennis Pugh, the 1996 State Coach of the Year, and Dick Serrano, who retired from the old San Diego University. Vickery’s win total trails only Blalock.

Since 1933, the year Cal-Hi Sports chose to start naming a state coach of the year for baseball through research at the state library, Vickery is the ninth from the CIF San Diego Section. The last CIFSDS winner was ROB PHILLIPS of Grossmont League rival El Cajon Grossmont after the 2008 season.

During his career, the 60-year old Vickery has captured 12 league titles, four section titles, and four runner-ups. This group, which includes 6-foot-5, 229-pound four-year varsity left-handed pitcher and University of San Diego-bound TROY CONYERS, who won two of those titles before finishing second to San Diego Cathedral Catholic the last two seasons.

“Not only is he a great coach but he’s a great person,” said longtime San Diego area prep sports writer Steve Brand.

Best team?
“It could have been a tad better season but I have no complaints. These kids were winners. Just by accomplishment, they have to be my best four-year group. It’s hard to beat what this group has done,” said Vickery, who wanted to talk more about his players than being honored.

“Conyers (9-2 record, 131 strikeouts) was the winning pitcher in the CIF title game his freshman and sophomore years, and lost last year, but we had to use him against St. Augustine ( San Diego ) so he wasn’t available this year. We had complete confidence in SHANE COLEMAN (8-2 record) since he had beaten Cathedral Catholic and D1 ( San Diego ) Rancho Bernardo this season.”

Other players Vickery wanted to mention are senior pitcher KEVIN GINKEL, a two-year varsity player that went 9-0 last year and 8-2 this season; three-year starter and clutch-hitting senior centerfielder CURREN FACER, and junior three-year varsity catcher and third-baseman ERIC LOZANO.

Not just baseball
For his first five years as a coach, Vickery was at Valhalla. Prior to that and right out of college he assisted in baseball, football and basketball at Valhalla.

“Wade and I went to El Capitan so I was looking for an opportunity to come back, and I’ve never regretted the move,” said Vickery, who between Valhalla and El Capitan was also a football assistant coach for 20 years.

On being honored
“It’s an absolute great honor to be named coach of the year, but I didn’t go into coaching chasing honors or wins. I went into it because I have a passion for the game and the relationships made.”

The relationships
“They had a retirement party for me and a couple of my old players flew in. It really touched me that they made that kind of effort. When you’ve touched a lot of lives it makes you feel pretty good about what you’ve done for 33 years.

JIM MARCHESE, a 1989 grad that was drafted by St. Louis, flew in from Las Vegas. NATE PORTER, a 1995 alum who played in college and is now a preacher in Colorado, flew in with his father. Several players from Vickery’s early years at Valhalla also attended.

Best players ever
Only two of his players donned Major League uniforms, 2002 grad KYLE PHILLIPS, who was with the Padres last season, and his brother and 1995 alum JASON PHILLIPS, who played for the Mets and Dodgers.

“My best player ever was MATT LACHAPPA, a left-handed pitcher from 1993 that was drafted in the second round by the Padres. He had a heart attack in the bullpen in A ball. He’s alive, but he’s a quadriplegic and confined to a wheelchair. He was going places. What a tragedy.”

Family support
“I could never have done this without my wife Debbie (Vickery). We’ll be married 40 years on July 1st. She’s been a blessing and a great supporter. She knew I had a passion. What a trooper.”

Steve and Debbie have four grown children, including three sons he coached in football, and nine grandchildren.

Not totally retired
Vickery is leaving coaching but won’t fully retire until next year. The El Capitan athletic director and math and algebra teacher is actually taking on more, since he’ll be the math department chair in the fall.

“I didn’t want the shock of retiring all at once.”

When one of his granddaughters asked him what he would do in retirement, grandpa had the perfect answer.

“‘Maybe I’ll have time to coach girls softball’ I told her, and attend all the grandkids’ baseball and softball games.”

Conyers repeats as Player of the Year

© East County Sports.com
BALBOA PARK (6-8-12) — For just the fifth time in CIF San Diego Section history, a baseball player – El Capitan High's TROY CONYERS – has repeated as the player of the year in media voting announced by the San Diego Hall of Champions.

Conyers, who led the Vaqueros to a fourth straight CIF championship game appearance (with a pair of titles), will play for the University of San Diego next spring. He joins Mike Correia (USDHS, 1980-81), Eric Chavez (Mt. Carmel, 1995-96), Adrian Gonzales (Eastlake, 1999-2000), and Matt Bush (Mission Bay 2003-04) as two-time winners of the prestigious award.

He is also this season's East County player of the year, taking honors after the left-hander posted a 9-2 record with two saves and a 1.02 to go with a .394 (39-for-99) batting average.

Despite such lofty credentials, Conyers and his family asked Major League Baseball teams not to select him in this week's First-Year Player Draft due to new salary and slotting cap regulations. Every area scout indicated that Conyers could easily be selected among the first 10 rounds, but because of deep commitment to attend the University of San Diego, did not want to burn any ballclub which might select him.

Conyers will again become draft-eligible in 2015.

East County's other first team pick was outfielder Trenton Brooks of Grainte Hills by the media panel for the San Diego Hall of Champions.


MLB FIRST-YEAR PLAYER DRAFT
CSUSM’s Renteria tabbed
in 39th Round by Padres

By Nick Pellegrino

SAN MARCOS (6-6-12) – Cal State San Marcos left fielder Anthony Renteria was chosen by the hometown San Diego Padres in the 39th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball FIrst-Year Player Draft, it was announced Wednesday (June 6). The senior out of Temecula was the 1,185th overall selection.

Renteria, the son of fifth-year Padres bench coach Rick Renteria, was selected by the Friars in the 32nd round of the 2007 MLB Draft out of Great Oak High before electing to attend college. After spending two seasons at Palomar College, the younger Renteria started 40 of 48 contests in 2011 for the Cougars, hitting .336 with 29 RBI, four home runs and eight doubles.

In 2012, he was an all-conference first team honoree after he batted .331 with 12 home runs, 46 RBI and a .630 slugging percentage.

Renteria is the fourth CSUSM player drafted in the past two seasons. The first Cougars ballplayer to even be drafted was former Granite Hills High standout JOHNNY OMAHEN to the Florida Marlins (35th round) in 2011.

Moorman tops list of four East County draftees

LAKESIDE (6-6-12) — Courtney Hawkins, the first-round draft pick of the Chicago White Sox, left general manager Kenny Williams holding his breathe after doing his patented back flip in a jersey, slacks and dress shoes on stage at the MLB Television studios after becoming the 13th overall selected at this week's First-Year Player Draft.

Indeed, for every kid that grows up playing baseball, the dream of one day playing in the big leagues is the ultimate goal. For four East County players, a similar emotion was shared after hearing their names called on Wednesday's (June 6) third day of the selection process. Included were El Capitan catcher CHARLES MOORMAN, Grossmont College reliever MICHAEL FLORES, former Christian High product CODY POTEET, and Granite Hills starting pitcher DANIEL STARWALT.

Moorman was the first local player to hear his named called, taken in the 17th round (No. 546 overall) by the Texas Rangers.

A four-year varsity player, Moorman helped the Vaqueros pitching staff to four straight CIF championship appearances, winning twice. As a senior, the catcher called the pitches for every game for one of the top pitching staffs in the entire CIF San Diego Section while batting .346 at the plate. He also added five home runs and 24 RBI to the Vaqueros' cause.

“Chuck is very excited about being picked and will probably sign,” noted retiring El Cap head coach STEVE VICKERY.

At 6-foot-9, 235 pounds, it came as no surprise that Flores, Moorman's teammate from his 2011 campaign, was tabbed by the Atlanta Braves in the 24th Round (No. 749 overall) after spending just one season as a relief pitcher in the Griffins bullpen.

Following his senior year at El Cap, Flores was a All-East County second team pick and an unanimous Grossmont Valley League first team selection, going 6-2 boasting a 1.90 ERA and had almost a 9-1 strikeout ratio posting 44 K's to just 5 walks.

Poteet was taken by the Washington Nationals with the 27th round with the 834th overall pick.

In his junior season with the Patriots, Poteet led all of East County batting with an absurd .509 batting average and also ranked number one in runs and hits capping it all by placing fourth in stolen bases with 20. But his obvious future is in his right pitching arm.

With a scholarship offer in hand to attend UCLA, Poteet took a huge risk by not playing with his fellow high school classmates, choosing to play in an alternate league. For a lot of scouts, that raised a big red flag and surely his status suffered come draft time. Not turning 18 until early July, he's tagged as a very young talent that is wise beyond his years on the mound, yet has excellent command of three pitches, thus most scouts project him as a starting pitcher in the majors.

Starwalt, the ace of the Granite Hills pitching staff, was taken by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 37th round with the 1,148th pick. The location was lower than originally expected after the 6-foot-3, 211-pound right-hander missed the majority of senior season with an L3 vertebrae stress fracture, yet he continued to make an impact on the mound while impressing scouts along the way.

As a junior, the lanky ace was named to the Under Armour All-American game at Wrigley Field, an event with only 35 other players in the nation taking part in. As a senior, he was an overwhelming obvious choice for All-East County first team after posting a 5-5 record with a 2.58 ERA, while tossing 5 complete games. He also batted .396 in only 91 at-bats, while playing solid defense at first base.

One of the reasons the pro scouts may have shied away from Starwalt is he has a baseball scholarship to Stanford and indicated he was leaning that way.

Hillers seek baseball mentor

© East County Sports.com
EL CAJON (5-29-12) — Grossmont High School is seeking a Varsity Baseball Head Coach. No teaching position. Applicants send resume to athletic director Frank Foggiano by EMAIL.

Wolf Pack's Fowler resigns

By Bill Dickens
© East County Sports.com

SANTEE (6-3-12) — After three seasons as West Hills High’s baseball coach, Wolf Pack alum JASON FOWLER has resigned his position for personal reasons.

Fowler, who also holds a teaching position and performs a football coaching role at Madison High, basically has too many irons in the fire. He and his wife Tabitha are expecting their first child the first week of football season in August.

The fact that Fowler has a teaching position and could not land the same at West Hills no doubt figured in the decision.

The youthful Fowler figures to continue his duties as an assistant football coach for the Warhawks and someday hopes to return to the baseball arena.

In his three seasons at West Hills, the Wolf Pack only got better. Best of his three seasons was an 18-15 overall record and a 4th place finish in the rugged Grossmont Hills League this season.

Fowler is the third East County baseball coach to step down since the end of the 2012 season. El Capitan legend STEVE VICKERY coached his final game of a 33-year career in Saturday’s (June 2) San Diego CIF Division III against Cathedral Catholic. Grossmont’s JIM EARLEY resigned at the end of the regular season.

Applicants interested in the West Hills job should contact Wolf Pack athletic director DON RUTLEDGE by EMAIL.
