PREP NOTEBOOK Torrance to honor Blankinship

first_imgNorth Torrance’s Kyle Cryer already had established himself as a standout receiver, but he opened eyes with a prolific performance Thursday night at Redondo. Cryer rushed an eye-popping 44 times and gained 244 yards. He scored one touchdown and had three runs of 20 or more yards, including a long of 27 yards. “I knew he had numbers like that in him in an all-purpose role, but I would have been surprised if you told me he’d have that many rushing yards, considering he’s a receiver,” North coach Todd Croce said. Cryer had more than 200 receiving yards in Week 1. He moved to the backfield to help North try to snap a winless streak that has reached three games. Cryer didn’t care about his rushing totals. “We’re just trying to piece together a season,” he said. “We’ve got five guys up front and that’s all we’ve got.” Calling in reinforcements With a rising number of premier local cross country teams bolting from the South Bay Cup, Torrance coach Israel Pose knew he needed to make a drastic change. So he called in Saugus, the No. 2 girls team in CIF Division I, to add legitimacy to the meet. Look for an intense Saugus-Mira Costa showdown on the girls side. “Maybe getting Saugus will spark an interest,” Pose said. We’ve got a lot of good teams in the South Bay, but there’s coaches who don’t bring their teams to this meet, and it’s discouraging,” Pose said. The South Bay Cup is expected to have 15 teams, including Torrance, West Torrance, South Torrance, Mira Costa, North Torrance, Leuzinger and San Pedro. Saugus is coached by Rene Paragas, a former El Camino College runner who has known Pose for years. “Rene asks me every year if he could compete,” Pose said. “I always told him no before, but maybe we need to start bringing in some outsiders. Loyola and Lakewood have asked about this meet in the past.” The Hill has no love for this event. Peninsula, Palos Verdes and Chadwick opted not to run in this year’s version of the South Bay Cup. Redondo is expected to use its lower-level runners. Rain follies Friday’s rainy football games yielded an interesting statistic. There were seven safeties in the 10 games involving local teams. St. Bernard recorded a safety against Palos Verdes, Inglewood gave up one up in its game at San Clemente, Morningside got one against Animo, Westchester allowed two in its game with Washington and El Segundo and Mary Star each had one in its matchup at El Segundo. “I think any time you get the first rains of a season, the kids aren’t used to it, the fields aren’t ready for it and there’s a learning curve that goes with playing in wet weather,” El Segundo coach Steve Shevlin said. Shevlin said El Segundo’s field is in particularly poor shape and is not equipped to handle the wear and tear the teams put on it en route to a strange final score. El Segundo won the game, 11-2. “I’m sure it was a pretty interesting score to look at,” Mary Star coach Dino Andrie said. Close, but still, a cigar Palos Verdes girls volleyball coach Pinter Aguirre had a good reason for missing Tuesday’s match against Torrance. Aguirre informed Athletic Director Mike Boyd that he would not be attending the match so that he could be with his wife, Melissa, during the birth of their son, Connor James. The 6-pound, 12-ounce, 20-inch baby was born at 8:03 p.m. Tuesday. Palos Verdes captain Joanna Bahl called Aguirre to inform him of the team’s five-game loss to Torrance shortly after Connor was born, but her reason for calling wasn’t strictly volleyball-related. “She wanted to talk about the birth first and the match second,” Aguirre said. Quick ascension Redondo’s Hayward Gray was No. 3 on the Redondo depth chart as a junior, but this year he might be one of the quickest running backs in the South Bay. Gray rushed 26 times for 288 yards Thursday against North. He has the benefit of fullback Joe Rubio, who rushed 12 times for 55 yards. “We work well together,” Gray said. “He hits the hole and I come up behind him. I think it’s a good combination.” Linsky commits Peninsula baseball coach Dennis Gonsalves said that right-handed pitcher Lenny Linsky has made a verbal commitment to play at the University of Hawaii. – John Klima, David Saunders, Tony Ciniglio160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Torrance High will retire the uniform number of the late Kim Blankinship as the highlight of a girls volleyball tripleheader on Saturday at Torrance. Blankinship, the most decorated female athlete in Tartars history with 12 varsity letters, died unexpectedly at age 31 last October. She was a first-team All-CIF selection for two years in volleyball, soccer and track. The Tartars will retire the No. 14 jersey that she wore in both volleyball and soccer following the 5 p.m. Redondo-North Torrance match and prior to the 7:30 South Torrance-Torrance match at the Torrance Challenge. “She was everything right about Torrance,” Torrance girls volleyball coach Nathan Jones said. “We’ve had big athletes come through here. Louis Zamperini has the track stadium named after him. Fred and Jason Kendall have the baseball field named after them. We thought it was appropriate to honor Kim in this fashion.” Jones said Blankinship’s parents are expected to attend the uniform retirement ceremony along with several family members. The showcase kicks off with a West Torrance-El Segundo match at 3 p.m. The Redondo-North showdown follows and Torrance closes out with South Torrance in a Pioneer League match. Tickets for the full day cost a minimum $5 donation, and the proceeds will go to the Kim Blankinship Memorial Fund. “I’m pretty sure I’m going to be wiping away tears as we go down to play our match,” Jones said. “The Blankinships are such nice people.” Cryer in the rain last_img read more
