2013 Boys Outlook:
It was complete domination last season as Serrano took the first 5 places.  They may not duplicate that feat this year, but they will have no problem defending their team title.  They project to be easy winners with 18 points, but after that, it will be a real dog fight.  Apple Valley loses 3 of their top 4 to graduation, which brings them back to the pack.  Potentially, 11 points separate 2nd from 5th, but much depends on Hesperia's ability to back up their solid top 2.  If they can, they could finish 2nd, with Apple Valley and Sultana too close to call for the 3rd spot.  Individually, Serrano's Hunter Cornell should come out on top again!


2013 Girls Outlook:
Traditionally, the Mojave River League has been very solid on the girls side, but Serrano has distanced themselves from the rest.  As solid a team as any in San Bernardino County, the Diamondbacks bring back 6 of their 7 that ran out of their minds at the State Meet in Fresno a year ago.  They will have no problem repeating, as the league meet represents something closer to a mid-season meet.  Sultana, behind the strength of Moriah Munyan and Kaylee Upham, should take second by a comfortable margin, while Apple Valley and Oak Hills battle for the final spot.  The league features outstanding individual talent with the Sultans mentioned, as well as CIF Finalist Stefani Gaskell (Hesperia).  However, to win the title, they would need to defeat one of the state's finest in Serrano's Melissa Fairchild
