Compiled by Nick Leyva Role-playing SBVC is rolling along in Foothill Conference San Bernardino Valley College's baseball team is off to a good start in the Foothill Conference. The Indians are in second place (3-1-1) behind Chaffey (4-1). "We're getting steady play out of our shortstop Eric Campa," said SBVC coach Stan Sanchez, whose team has a home game today against Victor Valley at 2:30 p.m. "He's our leadoff hitter and a good base-stealer. He really ignites us at times." Freshman Don Johnson and outfielder Rafael Rodriguez have been getting key hits, while Darren Espinoza, a 5-6, 150-pounder, has been an "overachieving" surprise, Sanchez said. "Mark Loeb hasn't had the offensive year we'd like, but he's starting to swing well," said Sanchez. The coach described his pitching as "Jekyll and Hyde." Sanchez said he is getting quality work from starters Jeff Rowe (4-2) and Panch McMichael Local colleges Cindy Robinson (3-1), w hile relievers Jeff Slider (2-1), Ruben Montano (5-1, four saves) and Gabriel Pineda are improving. Greg Gehrett has been effective as a spot starter and reliever. Sanchez seid that "most of our pitching is done in roles. We're trying to create a team concept. "I told the team we're not blessed with great athletes. We have guys who can run well and guys who run poorly, power hitters and scrappy hitters, and the pitching is the same way. "We try to get the advantage and use whoever the situation dictates. We're not a really domi nant team. We don't play just nine players in any game." Sanchez, whose team is 18-8-1 overall, feels the Indians can get to the 30-win plateau. "But we have to get hot," he said. "We have to start playing really good baseball. If this club gets hot, they could possibly start dominating people, but I haven't seen it yet. Anyone can beat anyone in our league." Cal State San Bernardino's softball team had a long weekend in San Diego. Playing in the Triton Tri tournament, the Coyotes went 0-4 against their main rivals for the top ranking in the NCAA Division III West region, losing to UC San Diego (6-5 and 1-0 in eight innings) and Cal State Stanislaus (4-1 and 3-2). The Coyotes got back on the w inning track by beating Augsburg (Iowa) twice on Saturday. Cal State, now 17-5, will host Cal Luthern, an NAI A team, at 2 p.m. today and Cal State Hayward on Wednesday, also at 2. National and regional rankings are due Wednesday, and Cal State figures to be No.3 in the West, behind San Diego and Stanislaus. The Coyotes could have an opportunity to avenge their losses to the Tritons and Warriors when the teams play in Hayward's Pioneer Classic tourney March 31-April2. Holly Haggerty knows things have to get better they certainly can't get any worse. Haggerty, women's tennis coach at Cal State San Bernardino, has been able to field a full six-player team in only half of the Coyotes' eight matches, all of which they have lost. Haggerty has a good attitude about it, though, and she's thankful her team does, too. "I had no chance to recruit," said the first-year coach. "You just take what you have and work w ith that. That's about all you can do. I never had to face this before. We're just a very young team. I think we're going to win a couple in April." Senior Debbie Wallace is the only returnee. Two freshmen, a sophomore and two junior college transfers round out the squad. Coyotes players have won only two individual matches against Biola and Cal State Stanislaus. The team has lost every other match 9-0. Ken Miller, baseball coach at the University of Redlands, hopes his team will have more success once Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play begins April 7. The Bulldogs have struggled to a 8-12 record in the preconfer-ence season. The last few losses have been heartbreakers, caused by untimely errors. "Our defense is OK, but we break down at critical times a Gaytan: San Gorgonio has new football coach Continued fromCI the value of the passing game and I think we'll have a balanced attack." Gaytan compiled a record of 46-37 in eight years as a head coach. After he left Colton in 1978 (he served as an assistant at Bloomington High School in 1976), Gaytan coached the offensive line at Brawley High School for one season. He then took the Needles job and turned a 5-5-1 team into a 6-4 squad in 1980. The Mustangs qualified for the CIF playoffs the next three years and reached the Inland Conference semifinals in 1981. Gaytan moved to Ocean View in 1984, inheriting a football program that was virtually ignored by administrators and the district. Gaytan found the going rough, finishing last in the Sunset League and compiling a 2-8 overall mark each of his two years. "Ocean View was the stepchild school of that (Huntington Beach Unified) district," Gaytan said. "But San Gorgonio has so much support. There are many people waiting in the wings ready to help." In 1986, Gaytan moved to Edison, where discipline was his No.l priority. He posted consecutive 6-4 seasons in the rugged 10-team North Yosemite League, which includes powerhouses such as Madera, Bullard, Clovis and Clo-vis West. "I had to wear a lot of hats at Fresno. But I have a pretty clear-cut system when it comes to discipline," Gaytan said. "I'm all business when it comes to my team; there's no gray area with me." Gaytan sat out last season after he went through a divorce and his father passed away, all within a month. "I figured those weren't good enough reasons to drag the team down," he said. "I figured if I was a good enough coach, the opportunity to coach again would come up." Gaytan said he will ask members of Duncanson's staff to return in the fall and that he also would add assistants of his own choosing. Gaytan, who will teach physical education and English at San G., added that he will be available for spring drills, scheduled to begin in May on a Monday-through-Thursday schedule. "I'm one of the guys who paid his dues," Gaytan said. "I want to show people who come from a lower-middle class Hispanic family like I did that you can make it" Gayton's record Lifetime coaching record for Karl Gaytan, who was named as San Gorgonio High School's football coach Monday.

"Our level of play has really improved over the first part of the season. We felt we'd be a little inconsistent in the early season. We should be in a pretty good position in conference." Miller praised Sean Dunne's pitching performance March 1 1 against Biola. The sophomore threw a two-hit shutout, walking one and striking out eight in the seven-inning game. Redlands already has met SCIAC rival Pomona-Pitzer, sweeping a three-game series. "Our offense has been struggling the last few games," Miller said. "I've talked to our coaches and they said it's young players trying to get college hits and they're pressing a little bit, and then our older guys start to press a little bit to pick up the slack." The Bulldogs will play a dou-bleheader at home against Wisconsin-Whitewater on Thursday at 1 p.m. Three county players on A1I-CIF Div. V team The Sun San Bernardino County's leading scorer with a 28.4 average, Tom Moore of Abundant Life Christian Academy, was named to the Division V All-CIF team by members of the First Interstate-Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles. Joining Moore, a 6-foot senior guard, on the first team was Hesperia Christian's Mark Smith, a 6-3 junior who averaged 17.4 points a game and guided the Patriots to another Christian League title. Moore led the Eagles to the Metro League title and an 18-5 overall record. Junior guard Reggie Sparrow of Ambassador Baptist, whose team defeated Abundant Life in the first round of the Small Schools playoffs, was named to the second team. Sparrow averaged 24.4 points a game for the Bulldogs, who finishee third in the Victory League.
