Inspired by big-wave women surfers securing the same prize money as men, California lawmakers have introduced a bill that would require equal purses for all athletes competing on state property used for recreation. The bill, co-authored by San Diego assemblywomen Tasha Boerner Horvath and Lorena Gonzalez, is a continuing effort to challenge the once-accepted practice in sports of paying women less than men. But in an interesting political twist, lawmakers are borrowing the surfers’ strategy for an issue that also has confronted Hollywood, Silicon Valley and other workplaces in the #MeToo era. “We would never say in any space public or private, it’s OK to pay women less than men,” Boerner Horvath said Thursday in a phone interview. “When we look at these athletes, this is their place of work. This is where they earn their money and where they perform.” The bill would codify a State Lands Commission ruling last year that included pay equity as a condition for granting a permit to the Mavericks big-wave contest near Half Moon Bay that will be held before March 31 if wave and weather conditions allow it. But the legislation also creates momentum for the women surfers to take their campaign into other arenas. “When we get it in writing it gives us a lot more strength,” said San Francisco’s Bianca Valenti, one of the world’s best surfers who has led the equal-pay campaign. “Once California does something the rest of the world follows.” Surfing, beach volleyball, marathons and triathlons — professional sports that need state permits to hold their events in some California locations — already offer equal prize money for women and men. The annual Amgen Tour of California, a 750-mile men’s cycling road race that stops in Morgan Hill on May 14, began giving women equal prize money last year for their abbreviated three-stage race. Although its immediate impact might be more symbolic than tangible, supporters hope the state bill will lead to gender-equity legislation across the country. Valenti, one of the 10 women invited to compete for the first time at the famed Mavericks contest, always viewed the equality fight as going beyond surfing. “When women get paid equally in every sport we are going to see the performance skyrocket,” she said Thursday. The campaign began three years ago when Valenti helped create the Committee for Equity in Women’s Surfing with Sabrina Brennan, the San Mateo County Harbor Commission president. The Bay Area women, along with Hawaiian big-wave stars Paige Alms and Keala Kennelly, lobbied state and local agencies to not issue permits to contest organizers without gender equity. It was considered a watershed moment when the World Surf League announced in September that it would pay women and men equally across all of its worldwide events after failing to get a State Lands Commission permit without the equality provision. San Mateo County Harbor Commission president Sabrina Brennan has helped lead the battle for pay equity. (LiPo Ching/Bay Area News Group) “It’s not over: There’s Hawaii and there are the Olympics,” Brennan said Thursday. “We want to see all public lands and facilities require equity.” Brennan already has talked to Honolulu politicians about getting their state to adopt similar oversights as California. She said Hawaii needs to change its shoreline rules that govern surf contests to include pay equity as a condition of use permits. Such a change would affect only those contests not run by the World Surf League, the sport’s biggest event organizer. Pay disparity issues have been an ongoing concern for women entering the professional sports job market even as participation has grown dramatically in the aftermath of the passage of Title IX, a 1972 federal law prohibiting gender discrimination in schools and universities that accept public money. Sports such as basketball, cycling, golf, hockey and soccer still have big wage gaps between men and women. Players on the highly successful U.S. soccer and ice hockey teams have sued and threatened boycotts over pay inequity. The disparity exists because men’s sports started first, said David Berri, a Southern Utah University economics professor who writes about gender and sports. “It’s not because men’s sports are more popular organically,” he added. Not all sports struggle with the issue. Women get paid equally in tennis’ four Grand Slam tournaments, and in sports that include beach volleyball, mountain biking, road running, skiing, snowboarding, track and field and triathlons.

Redlands Daily Facts
At first, 2019 was rather manic for Mount San Jacinto College’s men’s basketball team. The Eagles were 17-2, ranked No. 2 in the state and were basking in the glow of celebrating the life of one of their biggest benefactors and presences – Charlie Silvas. The Eagles held a brief ceremony for Silvas, a longtime athlete, coach, parent and benefactor to the MSJC athletic program, on Jan. 23, in between the women’s and men’s basketball games against Miramar. Silvas, who graduated from MSJC, coached the MSJC women’s team for two years and also coached boys and girls basketball at San Jacinto and West Valley highs, died last may at 69. With the honors for a fallen member of the MSJC Athletic Hall of Fame duly noted, the Eagles went out and blasted Miramar, 91-73, behind 25 points from Justin Holiday. Two nights later, they would hit that 17-2 mark with a 97-71 pasting of Palomar. After the events of the last week, MSJC is hoping that’s not its high-water mark, because that’s when the manic turned to depressive. The Eagles went to San Bernardino Valley College Jan. 30, committed 22 turnovers, hit only 41.2 percent of their shots and lost to their conference rivals, 91-87. Led by Roman Silva and Damani Washington, who scored 18 points apiece, five SBVC players scored in double figures as MSJC wasted 27 points off-the-bench from Holiday and 26 from David Thompson. That could be expected, considering SBVC was ranked ninth in the state. What happened two nights later on Feb. 1 is something MSJC coach Patrick Springer can use as one of those Season Defining Teaching Moments. The Eagles went to Palm Desert and were summarily waxed 104-86 by an 10-12 College of the Desert team coached by Springer’s former protege, Trent Skinner. Again, the Eagles were undone by poor shooting (38.2 percent) and turnovers (14), that COD turned into 27 points. Combined with the 28 points SBVC scored off turnovers and Springer’s clipboard is already full. Now [cq comment=”17-4″]18-4 and ranked No. 9 in the state, MSJC’s first chance to turn the depressive to manic is tonight, against Miramar. And just looking ahead a bit, SBVC comes to San Jacinto Feb. 19. Winning that game could set off another ceremony of sorts. A much happier one. Nobody Doubts this Thomas Britney Thomas earned her third Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week award of the season this week. And you can be assured she will remember this one and treat the hardware more fondly than the first two. That’s because Thomas took an eraser to the Cal Baptist record book last week, scoring 39 points on 17-for-23 shooting – and doing so in only 28 minutes – as the Lancers handled Seattle University, 100-83. Thomas’ 11 rebounds, giving the junior her 13th double-double of the season, were almost window dressing, because of the impact of her night offensively. Thomas’ 17 field goals set an NCAA-era record at CBU, while her 39 points were the second-most by a CBU player in the NCAA era. The 39 points tied for 14th for any Division I player this season, and they were the most scored by a WAC player since Louisiana Tech’s Keila Shelton went off for 45 six years ago today. Thomas, who scored 25 of her points in the second  half, was only four points shy of Kamille Diaz’s school record of 43 set two years ago against Point Loma. For the week, which included victories over Seattle and Utah Valley, Thomas averaged 26.5 points, 10 rebounds, a block and assist. SBVC soccer pipeline keeps flowing Four players from San Bernardino Valley College’s standout women’s soccer team committed to four-year schools this week, with Louisiana State University-Alexandria snagging midfielder Stephanie Doran (Grand Terrace) and forwards Karen Jacobs (Redlands East Valley) and Morgan Simmang (Tahquitz). Eastern Oregon, meanwhile, grabbed defender Kayla Storm (Roosevelt). LSU-Alexandria is quite familiar with the Wolverines and their recent successes. The Generals already have SBVC product and junior defender Jordan DeJongh on their roster. But now, in Jacobs, they have one of California’s standout community college forwards, an all-state player who scored 18 goals – including six game-winners – and added 13 assists in 2018. Doran, who played on Grand Terrace High’s CIF championship team in 2016, scored twice and assisted on five more goals. She scored seven goals as a freshman. Simmang scored five goals and three assists last season. Storm, meanwhile, helped anchor a defense that allowed only 12 goals in 25 games – a big reason SBVC went 19-2-4 and reached the state semifinals. Keep An Eye On — Cal State San Bernardino catcher Dominique Walker, who earned 2019’s first CCAA Player of the Week award in softball. Walker went 9-for-12 with four doubles at the Desert Stinger Tournament in Las Vegas, driving in eight runs and pacing the Coyotes to the tournament title. Walker was a big reason the Coyotes outscored their opponents, 34-5, in the three games. — University of Redlands second baseman Andrew Renteria and pitcher Chris Fousek Jr., who gave the Bulldogs an opening-week sweep of the SCIAC Baseball Athletes of the Week. In two games against Pacific University of Oregon, Renteria batted .500 (4-for-8) with his first collegiate homer and a key two-run single in the eighth inning of the second game to earn Hitter Of the Week honors. Fousek struck out eight in six innings of three-hit ball for Pitcher of the Week honors. — Redlands thrower Reyna Ta’amu, who didn’t miss a beat from her 2018 All-American season by winning the Division III shot put at the prestigious indoor Mountain T’s Invite. Her toss of 50-feet, 11-inches placed her second among all competitors – Division I through NAIA – at the meet. That throw not only puts the graduate student atop the Division III rankings, but is the seventh-longest throw in D3 history. — CMS divers Kendall Hollimon and Jacque Desmond, who were named SCIAC Divers of the Week. In a tri-meet against Cal Lutheran and La Verne, Holliman, a returning All-American, swept the one-meter and three-meter to remain perfect against Division III competition this season. It was his third weekly award. Desmond was named the SCIAC Women’s Diver of the Week for the fourth time this season, sweeping the one-meter and three-meter events for the second time this season. She is 5-for-6 in winning the one-meter in SCIAC competition and 3-for-6 in the three-meter.

The Eagles went to San Bernardino Valley College Jan. 30, committed 22 turnovers, hit only 41.2 percent of their shots and lost to their conference rivals, 91-87. Led by Roman Silva and Damani Washington, who scored 18 points apiece, five SBVC players scored in double figures as MSJC wasted 27 points off-the-bench from Holiday and 26 from David Thompson. That could be expected, considering SBVC was ranked ninth in the state. What happened two nights later on Feb. 1 is something MSJC coach Patrick Springer can use as one of those Season Defining Teaching Moments. The Eagles went to Palm Desert and were summarily waxed 104-86 by an 10-12 College of the Desert team coached by Springer’s former protege, Trent Skinner. Again, the Eagles were undone by poor shooting (38.2 percent) and turnovers (14), that COD turned into 27 points. Combined with the 28 points SBVC scored off turnovers and Springer’s clipboard is already full. Now [cq comment=”17-4″]18-4 and ranked No. 9 in the state, MSJC’s first chance to turn the depressive to manic is tonight, against Miramar. And just looking ahead a bit, SBVC comes to San Jacinto Feb. 19. Winning that game could set off another ceremony of sorts. A much happier one. Nobody Doubts this Thomas Britney Thomas earned her third Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week award of the season this week. And you can be assured she will remember this one and treat the hardware more fondly than the first two. That’s because Thomas took an eraser to the Cal Baptist record book last week, scoring 39 points on 17-for-23 shooting – and doing so in only 28 minutes – as the Lancers handled Seattle University, 100-83. Thomas’ 11 rebounds, giving the junior her 13th double-double of the season, were almost window dressing, because of the impact of her night offensively. Thomas’ 17 field goals set an NCAA-era record at CBU, while her 39 points were the second-most by a CBU player in the NCAA era. The 39 points tied for 14th for any Division I player this season, and they were the most scored by a WAC player since Louisiana Tech’s Keila Shelton went off for 45 six years ago today. Thomas, who scored 25 of her points in the second  half, was only four points shy of Kamille Diaz’s school record of 43 set two years ago against Point Loma. For the week, which included victories over Seattle and Utah Valley, Thomas averaged 26.5 points, 10 rebounds, a block and assist. SBVC soccer pipeline keeps flowing Four players from San Bernardino Valley College’s standout women’s soccer team committed to four-year schools this week, with Louisiana State University-Alexandria snagging midfielder Stephanie Doran (Grand Terrace) and forwards Karen Jacobs (Redlands East Valley) and Morgan Simmang (Tahquitz). Eastern Oregon, meanwhile, grabbed defender Kayla Storm (Roosevelt). LSU-Alexandria is quite familiar with the Wolverines and their recent successes. The Generals already have SBVC product and junior defender Jordan DeJongh on their roster. But now, in Jacobs, they have one of California’s standout community college forwards, an all-state player who scored 18 goals – including six game-winners – and added 13 assists in 2018. Doran, who played on Grand Terrace High’s CIF championship team in 2016, scored twice and assisted on five more goals. She scored seven goals as a freshman. Simmang scored five goals and three assists last season. Storm, meanwhile, helped anchor a defense that allowed only 12 goals in 25 games – a big reason SBVC went 19-2-4 and reached the state semifinals. Keep An Eye On — Cal State San Bernardino catcher Dominique Walker, who earned 2019’s first CCAA Player of the Week award in softball. Walker went 9-for-12 with four doubles at the Desert Stinger Tournament in Las Vegas, driving in eight runs and pacing the Coyotes to the tournament title. Walker was a big reason the Coyotes outscored their opponents, 34-5, in the three games. — University of Redlands second baseman Andrew Renteria and pitcher Chris Fousek Jr., who gave the Bulldogs an opening-week sweep of the SCIAC Baseball Athletes of the Week. In two games against Pacific University of Oregon, Renteria batted .500 (4-for-8) with his first collegiate homer and a key two-run single in the eighth inning of the second game to earn Hitter Of the Week honors. Fousek struck out eight in six innings of three-hit ball for Pitcher of the Week honors. — Redlands thrower Reyna Ta’amu, who didn’t miss a beat from her 2018 All-American season by winning the Division III shot put at the prestigious indoor Mountain T’s Invite. Her toss of 50-feet, 11-inches placed her second among all competitors – Division I through NAIA – at the meet. That throw not only puts the graduate student atop the Division III rankings, but is the seventh-longest throw in D3 history. — CMS divers Kendall Hollimon and Jacque Desmond, who were named SCIAC Divers of the Week. In a tri-meet against Cal Lutheran and La Verne, Holliman, a returning All-American, swept the one-meter and three-meter to remain perfect against Division III competition this season. It was his third weekly award. Desmond was named the SCIAC Women’s Diver of the Week for the fourth time this season, sweeping the one-meter and three-meter events for the second time this season. She is 5-for-6 in winning the one-meter in SCIAC competition and 3-for-6 in the three-meter.

At first, 2019 was rather manic for Mount San Jacinto College’s men’s basketball team. The Eagles were 17-2, ranked No. 2 in the state and were basking in the glow of celebrating the life of one of their biggest benefactors and presences – Charlie Silvas. The Eagles held a brief ceremony for Silvas, a longtime athlete, coach, parent and benefactor to the MSJC athletic program, on Jan. 23, in between the women’s and men’s basketball games against Miramar. Silvas, who graduated from MSJC, coached the MSJC women’s team for two years and also coached boys and girls basketball at San Jacinto and West Valley highs, died last may at 69. With the honors for a fallen member of the MSJC Athletic Hall of Fame duly noted, the Eagles went out and blasted Miramar, 91-73, behind 25 points from Justin Holiday. Two nights later, they would hit that 17-2 mark with a 97-71 pasting of Palomar.
