Webmaster's January 23, 2005 Season Division VAA Poll 2004-2005
Other teams to watch:
1 1T Hillcrest Christian GH 13-4 (4-0) Hillcrest Christian GH has three solid All-CIF stars in Drew Rigney, Dallas Rutherford and Ryan Halliday. Rutherford is an outstanding frosh who occasionally shows frosh inexperience But Halliday and Rigney are really two of the best players in Div VAA. It is a tough threesome to defend against this year. They are not much deeper than those three. Hillcrest Christian has only lost to Montclair Prep, Village Christian, St Francis, and Oaks Christian in OT. Game on 1-29 versus RHP will be the real test of this team. 2 1T Rolling Hills Prep 10-7 (2-0) RHP improves each game. Huskies have three real solid All-CIF players as well in Tristan Smith, Courtney Beach and Cameran Edison. Edison has made real improvement this season and plays way bigger than his 6' frame. He is a great point guard with great vision. Beach is awesome going to basket. And Smith provides them solid leadership. #23 and #32 are becoming good role players on this team. They only go about six or seven deep. Losses to West Torrance, Palos Verde, Hueneme, S. Pasadena,Palos Verde Estates and Sherman Oaks (Smith out for that game) and Pilibos. Minus Ribet plays only ranked teams the rest of the season. Lost at home to Pilibos last week. Plays HCGH 1-29, maybe the Div VAA game of the season. 3 4 JSerra 10-11 (NA) Solid starting five. Impressive wins over Long Beach Poly, Vista del Lago, Muir Calvary Chapel, Santa Ana and Laurinburg Charter of NC. Only lost to Mater Dei by about 16. Killed Cornerstone Christian Wildomar last week for 10th win according to Maxpreps. They will be tough in Div VAA playoffs. Lost tough game to St Anthony 58-55 on 1-7-05, proving that Div VAA teams can beat the Lions.
4 5 Pilibos 14-3 (2-1) Always a contender. They play a reasonably tough schedule with Hillcrest Christian, AGBU and San Gabriel Academy still to go. Both Chahanian and Nalbandian provide almost all of the scoring. 6' 7" center, Magop Manjikian has to get way tougher for the Eagles to have playoff success. Biggest win was last week against RHP. Only losses are to San Marino, Renaisance Academy and San Gabriel Academy (their only league loss).
5 6 Capistrano Valley Christian 14-5 (3-2) 1st Div VAA team to qualify for playoffs. Very solid team with Scott Ross and Scott Mac Rae leading the way. Not a deep team but Coach King gets the most of what he has. Only losses are to Chadwick, La Jolla Country Day, Arrowhead Christian,Brethren Christian And St Margaret's. Crystal Cathedral game is unreported. They still get to replay Brethren Christian and St Margaret's. 6 3 St. Anthony 9-10 (2-2) Senior star Karl Dehesa, Jed Hernandez and Aundre Cummings continue to provide the offensive power. Biggest win of season was against JSerra at home. Losses are to St Monica, Calvary Chapel Downey, LJCD, Cabrillo, San Gabriel Academy and San Pedro. Had great win over JSerra 58-55 on 1-7-05. But can they get 11 wins??? Got to beat Mary Star again and find a win against Cathedral or St Monica's to do it. 7 7 Community Harvest 8-4 (2-2) They play in the toughest Div V league in Socal. Sy Prescott gets them their points. Lost to AGBU twice, Price, RHP and Milken Community. Beat New Roads, Highland Hall, Ribet and Shalhevet.
8 9 Hesperia Christian 9-9 (4-0) They are lacking depth in the guards positions. Strong and tall backcourt. But team has not really played to their potential all season. Rebounding is poor and free throw shooting is very suspect. Loren Barton, 6'4" returns with a new knee and soph Sean Bayer at 6'5" returns with a new leg but neither is able to play to their capability yet. They also have Nate Glass at 6'6" who has improved to be their top scorer. Both frosh Preston Lamarca and Soph Jonny Barton have been pleasant surprises this season. HCS has played up all season. Did not have answer for Apple Valley Christian though in their Xmas Tourney but played best game of year against the Warriors in league last Friday. Will be tough for them to beat Apple one more time and Antelope Valley Christian twice this year.
9 8 Apple Valley Christian 11-3 (2-2) Have three top stars in Wes Watts, Justin Nunes and Peter Kudrle. Kudrle and Watts are not consistent in their scoring. No bench strength. Very weak schedule so far with only 29 Palms, Antelope Valley Christian (#5 in Div VA) and HCS twice as real opponents.
10 10 AGBU 8-5 (2-0) AGBU's top players are Arden Koskerian and Gaby Taslakian but to win both must be on which does not always happen. Triangle and two may be best defense against them. They play a very tough schedule (including Pilibos, Hillcrest Christian, and RHP) this year which will test them to the fullest. Their losses are to Blair, Cleveland, Kilpatrick, Delphi Academy and Pacific Hills. 11 11 La Verne Lutheran 12-0 (1-0) Only undefeated Div VAA team left but schedule is weak. They did beat Tarbut v Torah and play JSerra later this week. Andrew MacElroy, Matt Johnson and Rashid Witfield seem to routinely get double digit scores each game. 12 12 Tarbut v Torah 12-4 (2-1) They have again played no one except Sage Hills who has beaten them twice and Fairmont Prep and Lutheran (La Verne) who beat them. Only Saddleback Valley Christian and Fairmont Prep on TvT's schedule have chance of beating them in league. Jamie Stopnitzsky is their top scorer.
Whitewater, Lone Pine, Trona,Holy Martyrs, Upland Christian, Orangewood Academy, Pacific Hills and Boron
