n., March n. m INDEPENDENT (AM) PAESS : lELEGRAM^[PM)-C-3 'Pennant fever' common Tbr * eS * int * LBSU baseballers malady at Long Beach CC . By PAUL McLEOD Slaft Writer Pennant f e v e r is r u n n i n g rampant al Long Beach City College, . In the case of the Viking basketball team the reasons arc obvious--the Vikings-returned from Fresno a" week ago with an unprecedented fourth stale basketball championship and the tournament's most Valuable and most inspirational player in 6-0 play- making guard Dean Decker. B u t n o w t h a i t h e community college basket- b a l l season is o f f i c i a l l y over--save for one posts e a s o n JC A A U tourna- m e n t -- t h e m o m e n t u m hasn't let up with other LBCC teams. · The baseball squad wrapped up the f i r s t round Metropolitan Conference title last week. The Vikings wind up first round action Tuesday al Valley. · · The Vikings' recently- crowned national gymnastic champions, who hosl L.A. Trade Tech Friday, have not lost a dual meet since 19C9. LBCC is seeking its eighth successive stale gymnastic crown, · The Viking track team hasn't dragged its feet cither. Under Don Mulligan, LBCC is 3-0 and hosts (altering Pierce Friday in a lune-up for its conference showdown w i t h B a k e r s field Ihe following Wednesday. "THIS IS the best learn I've had," said Mulligan. "They just keep going and improving. The team com- peles well together." T h r e e school records h a v e a l r e a d y been i m proved: Dave Fuller's 163- f o o t discus loss; Craig Wilson's 16-foot pole vault; and Shaun Ward's 201-3 javelin throw have delighl- cd Mulligan. " W e ' l l h a v e m o r e records," M u l l i g a n pre- d i c t s . " W e ' l l be e v e n stronger now that sprinter Michael Gilliain (injured leg) a n d h i g h j u n i p e r David Oliver (basketball) are back." "PITCHING, d e f e n s e a n d team speed," have been the mainstay of the Viking baseball t e a m according to head coach Bob Myers. Pressure hasn't been a f a c t o r , despite t h e r u n a w a y Vikings' seasonal mark (19-1 in league, 16-2-1 on year). "The kids are loose and playing like they should be," said Myers. "I'm a poor rowser on the field. I think Ihe kids fee! very relaxed and easy going. They know they'll have lo go out in the second round and do it again." L a r r y Buckle, Kenny Price and G r e g Harris have shared mound duties, although Buckle missed a turn with lendonitis. Price has been the most surprising to Myers. "He's really helped us oul," he said. P E R H A P S a n a n t i climax following t h e national title achieved last w e e k e n d in Illinois, an e i g h t h successive s t a l e gymnastics t i t l e u n d e r John Draghi would boost t h e coach's consecutive winning string well over the 100 mark. The Vikings open defense of that tille in May. W h e n Draghi's l e a r n won the national title it ended the eight-year reign of Odessa, Texas. Seven Vikings gained All-America h o n o r s in individual competition: Steve Davis (free exercise and vaulting), Danny James (pommel horse). Jim York and Dan Egan (rings), Chad Nonnnan (horizontal bars) and F r a n k Martin (all- around). Davis' 18.C5 in vaulting and Nounnan's 18.70 on the b a r s w e r e n a t i o n a l records. T h i s w e e k ' s LBCC sports menu: Roles reversed: now \ Lancers chasingBruins H i g h school f a n s s u r - prised at Wilson High's fast start in the Moore League baseball race have s h o r t memories claims B r n i n coach S k i p R o w land. "We were unbeaten (3-01) going up against Lakewood for the first time last year, too," he says, not needing lo add what happened. The Bruins l o s t lhal first meeting to Lakcwood and five of Iheir nexl six, Nash chosen Moore MVP Johnny Nash has boon selected the Moore League basketball player of the year as voted upon by the six league coaches. N a s h , a 6-6 forward, won Ihe honor in close voting over teammate Michael Wiley and Gary' Mulder of Wilson. /The 1 1 - m a n ( c a m includes t h r e e p l a y e r s ( r o m P o l y , t w o f r o m C o m p t o n , J o r d a n a n d Mitlikan a n d o n e e a c h from Lakewood and W i l son. The team: Compton -- Marvin H e r n don, Pervis M i l l e r ; Jordan -R i l l Speck, frank Van Dyke; I-akewood -- Si«n Ziemcr; Miltikan -- R h e t t H c c k c l , John While: Poly -- Johnny N/ish, James Hughes, Michael Wiley; Wilson -- Gary Mu!d er. never really recovering in a season (hal saw them eventually finish in fourth place at 6-8-1. But a new year has new hopes and suddenly a new slant on the league standings. Wilson (4-01 goes to Mae Boyar Park Tuesday night to p l a y Lakewood ( 3 - 1 ) wilh the shoe on the other fool. The Lancers h a v e lo beat Wilson to regain a share of the league lead, a situation no Lancer team has faced in more than I wo years. Rowland thought M i l l i - kan's 3-2 win over Lakewood Friday, which ended t h e L a n c e r s ' 3 4 - g a m c l e a g u e winning streak, could do a lot for Ihe 1976 title chase. "Everyone would lose to Lakewood three times Ihe last couple of years and end up scrambling for second place," he says. "1 still think Lakewood has the team to boat, but at least it's going to be more interesting this spring." Wilson's fasl start can be attributed to s l o n g pitching from Terry Kassien and Bob Macias who are two of eight juniors t h a t h a v e seen considerable playing time. Kassien, who is 4 - 1 , showed signs of promise last year before injuring his arm; Macias (3-1) has b e a l e n Jordan 5-1 and C o m p t o n G-0 and is a transfer from Florida. Shorstop K i m W a r r , f i r s l b a s e m a n C h r i s S m i t h , outbidder R o n Thurston, Uiird baseman Collin Simons and catcher Terry Filer are other juniors who have been starters. Kifer, though, like counterpart Randy Whistler at Lakewood, is on Ihe sidelines. The Wilson catcher suffered a broken finger caused by a foul tip in the Jordan game and will -be out two weeks. Whisller is recovering from a broken wrist. In other g a m e s Tuesday, Millikan (3-1) plays Poly (0-1) at Blair Field and Jordan (1-3) is at Complon(l-3). Prep schedule 1 -- Jordan 31 Cumplui !
