This year the Fillmore High School Cross Country Mammoth Lakes Summer Camp participation was at a great success with a fresh bunch of runners having their first experience in Mammoth to train. For more than six weeks during the hot summer days over forty runners kicked off their season of running to prepare for the upcoming season. As a result and the combined efforts of coaches, parents and supporters, we were able to invite twenty four high school runners to the 7th annual Mammoth Lakes Summer Camp for an intense running week. These athletes were put to the test of high altitude training over a course of eight days. Every morning the team rose bright and early to run anywhere between four and ten miles on various types of terrain in the Inyo National Forest. The Fillmore High School athletes had many opportunities to test their running ability up hills, across mountains and through large meadows. In addition, the athletes had many bonding moments of which friendships, team bonding and the sense of team were heightened. In the mix we were able to take up eighteen new Mammoth camp runners and six veteran runners. The mixture of new with the old allowed for the veteran runners to share their expertise while the new runners were able to learn from those with experience. As a result, this year’s camp stood out over all the rest, for one the numbers greatly increased but more importantly it stood out because this large group came together as a team and learned how to work together to accomplish their goals.

Prior to the Mammoth Summer Camp, the athletes had a foundation of six weeks of training. The runners started fundraising for the trip back in June where they held two car washes, thanks to William L. Morris for always making your facility and equipment available to us. In addition friends, family and various businesses came through and sponsored the athletes. We would like to thank the following businesses for their support, Ernie’s Auto Care & Smog, Bob’s Radiator, Central Market, Aguirre Financial, Diamond Realty, FZ Tax Services, Ay Chihuahua Mexican food, Bennet’s Honey Farm, La Mitchocan, Estrella Market, Vons, La Unica, Fillmore Dentistry, Patterson Hardware, Fillmore Rentals, Maher Insurance (Farmer’s Insurance) and all the parents, families and friends for making possible this great opportunity for these runners. I would like to extend a special thanks to our parents who volunteered to chaperone the trip, Anthony and Brandy Tafoya. Thank you for the great meals and the security of knowing you are there to support the runners and coaches in the program. In addition the assistant coaches, Epi Torres, Victor Rodriguez and Anthony Rodriguez who work around the clock donating time to both the regular season and off season has made our program what it is today. We appreciate all the support and dedication you constantly give to the team. Our mission this year for the cross country program is to prepare for the expected difficult year ahead of us. Our program has been success for many years. The athletes are very dedicated, consistent and mindful of their training. The runners have set goals for this season, and are working hard every day to prepare for the upcoming season. We are really excited this year and believe this summer program and camp has helped our team grow both individually and as a team.

Kiana Hope and Jesus Mendoza medal at CIF Finals; Carlos Briceno and Kayla Grove perform strong as all Fillmore Flashes complete a successful post season campaign.

Kiana Hope and Jesus Mendoza place 3rd and 4th over all at the division 4 CIF Championships in the Girls 3200 meters and Boys 1600 meters respectively. Carlos Briceno, Boys 110 meter high hurdles and Kayla Grove, girls shot put wrap up a successful Track and Field 2014 Campaign.

Hope saved the best for last, producing life time best after life time best, from the county championships to CIF prelims than CIF finals. Her 3200 meter clocking of 11:14.96 was 5 seconds faster than her previous best posted at prelims the week before and solid enough to earn her the 3rd over all place medal. "Coaching Kiana has been an amazing experience this season, having her in a race is like having a coach in a race, except much faster. You can always depend on her to deliver and come through at precisely the time and effort that she needs to come in at. She understands the race dynamics to a whole new level, she's able to see the natural breaks, and she can always anticipate any substantial and race changing move, enabling her to react to them as they happen and thus becoming a strong presence in every race". After graduation this June, the recently crowned Miss Fillmore 2014 will head off to the University of Tennessee at Martin where she will lend her running talent and knowledge to the team!

Mendoza, came in to his senior season with no prior experience of running whatsoever but he transformed into a sponge and absorbed every single training session and race tip, learning and understanding race strategy quickly enough to scorch and set the track on fire day in day out and grab attention from his opponents over night. Climbing on to the podium became a necessity as he managed to do it every single meet, no mater the caliber or the competition. Just like Hope, Mendoza ran his best times when it mattered most, earning two medals at the county meet, wining the Tri Valley league championships 1600 meter race and using one final kick to grab the 4th place medal for that event in the finals with a personal best 4:22.04 just missing the all time high school record by a slim 2 seconds. Mendoza will be taking advantage of the local surroundings and familiar faces as he will attend Ventura College next season where he will also compete in Cross Country and Track.

Briceno used a season best in the 110 meter hurdles to finish 7th in the event with a time of 16.13, two spots higher that he was seeded entering the meet. "When the season first started and we began conditioning, Carlos expressed his desire to qualify and compete in the CIF divisional finals. Even though it was very early in the season, when I saw the look of determination in his face and heard the strength and belief in his voice, I knew that very moment I would be coaching a season that would extend all the way into the finals" Briceno is currently a Junior, he will have the opportunity to compete one more year as a Flash, with all the hard work and the foundation that has been built, next season should be one to look out for.

Grove, riding the confidence and momentum of her individual Tri Valley league title, used a strong performance in the prelims with her Life time best of 35'6" in the Girls shot put to advance in to the finals where she posted a solid throw of 34'9.75" and earned the 7th place in the Division Finals. Grove was as reliable as an athlete can be throughout the season, the team knew they could always depend on her to deliver and score the consistent points. Kayla is a Senior and will be attending Humboldt State university where she will continue her successful throwing career.

Peaking at the right time and posting life time best performances when it matters most can be the challenge and it becomes both and art and a science, this group of athletes figured out a way to make that their masterpiece. Once you get into the county meet and CIF meets, you find out that the competition is tough and you've gotta be tougher to survive. At that point the level of competition is always relatively the same, it is than the ability to reach and sustain that level of competition that becomes the difference maker, these athletes all mastered it well and used it to their advantage. GO FLASHES!!!

Hope Remains at an all time strong.

FHS Track and Field athletes showcase strong performances at CIF Division 4 prelims.

Four Athletes advance to CIF Finals: Two other events narrowly miss it.

CIF Divisional Preliminaries took place at Carpinteria High School this past Saturday May 17th with great performances throughout the day highlighting the efforts, hard work and determination of the athletes. The Fillmore Flashes Track and Field took full advantage of the championship atmosphere and quickly made the center stage their comfort zone. Kiana Hope lead the way with her runner up effort in her heat and third fastest time over all in the division in the girls 3200 meters with a life time best of 11:19.70. Coming off strong performances in the Ventura County Championships and Tri Valley League Championships , Hope remains strong as she has been riding momentum and running with confidence and determination all year long. Kayla Grove continued her dominant form in the Girls shot put and also used a life time best of 35'6' to post the 6th best throw of the day and advance to the finals as well. Grove has improved steadily and has been a consistent force in the girls throws all year long. Jesus Mendoza also earned the 6th fastest time in the boys 1600 meters matching his personal best with a 4:24.21. Mendoza, a first year runner, has ran fast and climbed onto the podium in each and every single meet of the season. For some one who comes in with no running experience prior to his senior year, to place at the invitational portion or the County Championships, win a Tri valley League title and now advance into the CIF finals is beyond impressive; it speaks volumes about his discipline, guts and work ethic. Carlos Briceno, 3rd in his heat and 9th place over all round out the four athletes who will compete at the CIF Finals at Cerritos College this Saturday May 24 with Field events scheduled to begin at 11 am and running events at 1 pm. Briceno expressed his desire and determination to earn the right to compete in the finals this year, earlier in the season and he has achieved it via hard work, consistency and effort. Justin Coert placed 10th in the boys shot put with a solid mark of 44'10.75" and the Boys 4x400 of Demitriouz Lozano, Carlos Briceno, and twin brothers Damien and Dominick Gonzalez also placed 10th over all and second in their heat giving up the win only to the defending state champions Serra High School. Top 9 advance. Damien also competed in the boys high jump, tying for 18th place with a mark of 5'6". Coert and every member of the boys 4x400 are Juniors. They all will come back with the experience, a great foundation and hungrier than ever. Peaking at the right time can be the difference maker and all these athletes have found a way to nail it. CIF Finals here we come... GO FLASHES!

Youth Track & Field Varsity Finals were held this past weekend at Moorpark High School. Heritage Valley Blazers had an outstanding 19 qualify for Southern California Co-Conference Championships to be held Saturday May 17th at Santa Barbara City College. One of our very own youth runners, Nevaeh Walla, 12 years of age, broke a 25 year old Youth Girls Ventura County record belonging to her former Coach and former Fillmore runner Maribela "Marty" Aparicio Hernandez. Marty now living in Oregon said: "Congrats to Nevaeh for an amazing 3200m record breaking run! My 13-14 year old youth girls record stood for 25 years. I am happy to see her dedication and hard work pay off and know she will continue to succeed." Marty's record was set back in 1989 with the time of 11:36.9, new record time is now 11:30.6. Good luck to all those runners representing Heritage Valley Blazers at Championships!

Torrance, CA - American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is dismayed by the recent allegations that resulted in the arrest of Jose Diaz for alleged sex crimes against a child. Although we have not received any information indicating that the charges involved any AYSO players, we are nonetheless working closely with law enforcement to address this situation. AYSO can confirm that Mr. Diaz has served as an AYSO volunteer since 2005.

It is AYSO’s policy to immediately suspend a volunteer charged with such actions from all AYSO activities pending the outcome of the case. In this situation, we took this step and suspended all AYSO privileges immediately upon being notified of the allegations.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are also reaching out to our players’ families and encouraging them to contact the Santa Barbara County Sheriffs, 1-805-737-4171, directly if they believe that they have any relevant information that may assist in the investigation.

We are saddened any time we learn of a situation like this in any youth sports organization. It is for this reason that AYSO was among the first youth sports organizations to implement a program to raise awareness of creating and maintaining a safe environment for youth players. Key components of this program include educating all volunteers through our nationally recognized Safe Haven training program and a robust background check process.

ABOUT AYSO
AYSO has over 500,000 players and more than 100,000 volunteers across the nation. Our priority continues to be to offer world class soccer programs that enrich children’s lives in a safe, fun, family environment.
