Upland Wins Upland Tournament
Over Rancho Cucamonga--(Dec 13, 1998)

Until we hear from our friends over at Upland High School, we'll have to settle for what the papers have to say about this one, and what we managed to find was only a report on the Championship game, which was won by Upland, and the Seventh Place game.   Everything in between is a blank as far as details go. This was the schedule for yesterday, so we know we're missing the Third and Fifth place game details:

Championship: Upland vs. Rancho Cucamonga, 8 p.m.
Third Place: Valley View vs. Palm Springs, 6:30 p.m.
Fifth Place: L.A. Locke vs. L.A. Dorsey, 5 p.m.
Seventh Place: Garey vs. Temple City, 3:30 p.m

This is what we have for now:
