“I think Chaffey’s the favorite, and Diamond Ranch is a sleeper,” Montclair coach Steve Sullivant said. “I don’t know what’s happened to them (Diamond Ranch).” Sullivant figures his team will keep improving, so he makes this promise: “If we win (tonight against Colony), put us down for second.” Don Lugo has been the team that has created the logjam at the top the last two years, beating Diamond Ranch in Week 10 last year, and Ontario in the final week the year before for a three-way tie. Don Lugo had back-to-back tough games in Weeks 2 and 3, getting outscored 77-0 by Chino and Riverside La Sierra. But the Conquistadores are riding a two-game winning streak entering league. “We have very good coaching in our league,” Brown said. “Tim Nelson (at Colony) won two CIF championships. Greg Setlich (at Don Lugo) won league the last two years. Tom Leach (at Diamond Ranch) and Nick Baiz (at Ontario) were the Inland Valley Coach of the Year the last two years. And coach Sullivant has gone from a spread passing team to one that pounds the ball on every down. “There’s going to be a lot of close games.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

For now, it seems Chaffey is the favorite to take the top spot by itself. “I have respect for all the other football teams, but I think we have a real good team,” Chaffey coach Chris Brown said. “We have a different mindset that we don’t want to share the title.” Last year, it was Chaffey, Diamond Ranch and Don Lugo sharing the title. The year before, it was Chaffey and Don Lugo again, with Ontario. Brown looks at last year’s playoff success by the league (three victories) as an indication the league is improving. Some teams are difficult to figure out entering league play such as Diamond Ranch, which is 0-5 after being routed by Covina last week, 37-0. Last season, Diamond Ranch advanced to the CIF semifinals. Colony looks to be on the upswing and is considered to have the most speed in the league, but the Titans were humbled by Upland 66-7 a week ago. Montclair is excited about its prospects with sophomore quarterback Justin Orona. That should allow it to rely less on the pass than earlier in the year. You can’t get any more balanced than the Mt. Baldy League has been at the top in the last two seasons. It’s been a three-way tie for first the past two seasons, and it easily could occur again.
