That average broke th« existing school record of .434, set last year by Cusick himself when he was junior. He compiled an 8-4 record as a pitcher, and "was feared by everybody in the league," according to Ms coach, Wally Hammond. Cusick also established another school mark when he completed a brilliant prep career by playing in 68 of the Indians' games. He began his sophomore year on the junior varsity, but was soon promoted to the varsity, where he quickly established himself as a complete player. "Ho wasn't the team captain this year," said Hammond, "but definitely was one of the leaders. "He held the guys together, and when things were down, he was still putting out 100%, and that's the kind of kid he is," said Hammond. Cusick, voted the team'* most valuable player each of the last two seasons, is studying an offer from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Other schools that have expressed interest in the power-hitting Cusick are Cal Poly Pomona and California State University, C IF champion Santa Monica High School led all Southland schools with first team selections with two, junior pitcher Anthony Williams and second baseman Steve Vollmer.
