COLLEGE BASEBALL ROUNDUP Cal State rallies for DH split The Sun Morningside beat Chino in the other semifinal Saturday night, 75-48, preventing the first all-county girls basketball CIF championship game. "We hud a great season to go this far," said Fontana first-year coach Floyd Youmans, whose team finished 22-7. "Our goal was to make it to the playoffs. Everything after that is icing on the cake. To get back (to the semifinals) after losing three starters is a tremendous accomplishment." Senior forward Linda Watson scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as Lynwood (25-1), the second-seeded team in the playoffs, beat Fontana for the second time this season. The Knights beat Fontana, 55-51, in the finals of the Fisen- The Master's College and Cal State San Hernardino baseball teams split a doubleheader Saturday at UC Riverside. The Master's won the opener 4-2, but Cal Slate came back in the nightcap, scoring three runs in the first inning en route to a 4-2 victory.

In the opener, Love went 2-lbr-3 with an RBI, but Cal State could only manage three hits against two of The Master's pitchers. Junior right fielder Jeff Bren-nan had the other bit, an RBI single in the fourth. That made it 2-1, Coyotes, before The Master's scored three times in the filth to win it. Cal State is now 3-3 and plays host to Cal Baptist on Tuesday at 3 p.m. UC RIVERSIDE 9, CHAPMAN COLLEGE 3: Designated hitter Scott I lay ward hit a three-run homer and Ruben Ayala and Scott Kinhorn added solo shots as UC Riverside battered Chapman College in a California Collegiate Athletic Association baseball game in Orange.

The Tigers will play 2 p.m. Tuesday at Rancho Santiago. hower Tournament in December to end the Steelers' five-year reign as tournament champions. The difference this time was Fohi struggled early and could never recover. Lynwood jumped to 12-6 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. In December, Fontana led by six alter the first quarter, let the lead slip away in the second, but hung tough before losing the game late in the fourth quarter. "We had some easy baskets we should have converted early," Youmans said. "It may have made the difference. If you get them down, you have a chance. We've improved a lot and they've improved tremendously since December." The loss ended the Steelers 11-game winning streak and was only Fohi's second loss in its last 16 games. Lynwood scored the game's first eight points before senior center Keisha Wiley got Fontana on the scoreboard with a short jumper 5:43 into the first quarter. In the second quarter, McCul-lough scored a layup after grabbing an offensive rebound to make it 14-12, Lynwood, with 6:39 lea in the first half. The Steelers stayed close for another three minutes when senior forward Ruby Jones hit the first of two free throws to make it 18-15 with 3:57 left. Then, the Knights took control, using a full-court press to force Fontana into several turnovers and blitzing the Steelers 13-0 the rest of the half to take a comfortable 31-15 lead into the locker room. "I thought we would handle the pressure better," Youmans said. "The turnovers in the first half broke our back. You can't make that many mistakes against a quality team like Lynwood." Watson had 17 points in the first half, including nine in the big 13-0 run. She also had six rebounds in the first 16 minutes and 13 for the game. "She's a tremendous athlete, she's a tremendous shooter, handles the ball well and she can jump," Youmans said of Watson. Lynwood and top-seeded Morningside will play for the CIF title on Friday at 8:15 p.m. at the UC Irvine Bren Events Center. i,:-' i w -v Rim and WHS send 3 wrestlers to State tourney By STEVE DILBECK Sun Sports Writer TRACY LEE SILVERIAThe Sun Starting pitcher Gabriel Pineda delivers to a Mt. San Jacinto batter during San Bernardino Valley College's 12-9 victory Saturday. SBVC tops Mt San Jacinto, reaches final of own tourney The Sun SAN BERNARDINO Sophomore first baseman Ruben Montano and shortstop Andy Small each drove in three runs for the San Bernardino Valley College baseball team Saturday as it advanced to the championship game of its own tournament with a 12-9 triumph over Mt. San Jacinto at Fiscalini Field. Sophomore center fielder Ray Aldama like Montano, a Colton High School graduate slugged a solo home run and scored four times for the Indians (8-3), who will face L.A. Harbor in the championship round today at Fiscalini Field, starting at 10 a.m. As the unbeaten finalist from the winner's bracket, SBVC will have two chances (if necessary) to win the double-elimina tion tournament. Loser's bracket champ L.A. Harbor has one loss in the tourney and must defeat the Indians twice today, while SBVC need only win once. L.A. Harbor reached the championship round with an 8-1 victory over Pasadena and a 14-5 conquest of Mt. San Jacinto on Saturday. Sophomore right-hander Gabriel Pineda (2-0) allowed five runs and six hits over 5' innings to get the win for the Indians, striking out five and walking four. Sophomore Greg Gehrett went the other 3 innings to pick up his second save, allowing four runs and three hits while fanning six and walking two. Sophomore second baseman Lenny Duran, an Eisenhower HS product, and freshman designated hitter Paul Rivera, a Colton HS grad, each scored twice for SBVC. Canadian swims to world best Associated Press LEICESTER, England Marcel Gery of Canada set his second world best time within 24 hours Saturday, then missed a third by a fraction of a second as he domi nated the second day of the final short-course World Cup meet of the season. Gery, who clocked 24.07 seconds in the heats to set a new short-course 50-meter butterfly world mark, won the event later in the day when he was 0.04 seconds outside that time. FOUNTAIN VALLEY Sometimes it's the smallest who stand tallest. Rim of the World High School, the wrestling champion from the CIF's 1A division, came down from its mountain home and put on a display for the Southern Section's big boys on Saturday. The Scots won two individual championships and captured one second place, for the best overall showing by any school at the CIF's Masters Tournament before 2,500 at Fountain Valley High School. Victor Valley, which had one individual champion, also advanced three wrestlers to the State championships next Friday and Saturday at the University of Pacific. Rim and Victor Valley will lead a contingent of 14 county wrestlers in the State tourney. Last year the county advanced only five wrestlers. Rim received individual titles from unbeaten Alex Heitz at 112 pounds and heavyweight Jeff Maier. VVHS's Blair Green captured the county's only other individual title, avenging last week's upset loss to Long Beach Poly's LeMans Wells in the 154-pound final. The CIF treats the Masters largely as a qualifying tournament for the State meet and team points are not kept. If they had been, it's likely Rim would have been the surprise winner. Arroyo and Canyon high schools also had two individual champions, but Rim also placed a third wrestler in the finals, Jason Roberts taking second at 145. No other school advanced three wrestlers into the finals. The three qualifiers give Rim an outside shot at winning the State team title. "It's hard with just three kids," said Rim coach John Beresford. "But if" they perform as well up there as they did here, we'll have a chance." Also advancing to the State tournament were Victor Valley's James Leonard (third at 138) and Rod Ludington (sixth, 145); San Gorgonio's Ron Rivers (fourth, 175) and Tommy Gallegos (fourth, 119); Yucaipa's John Drosos (fourth, 165); San Bernardino's Manuel Gaiton (fourth, 132); Eisenhower's Colby Gilbreath (fourth, 154); Fontana heavyweight Albert Mendez (sixth); Alta Loma's Rommie Fakhoury (third, 165) and Chino's Joe Huerta (sixth, 1 12). Rim was led Saturday, as it has been all year, by Heitz. The junior raised his record to 41-0 when he decisioned Gladstone's Keith Bowman 2-0 in the final. It was a rematch of last week's 1A final, a 3-0 win for Heitz. Saturday's rematch was scoreless heading into the final period before Heitz escaped to take the lead. He was later awarded a second point when Bowman was called for stalling. "It started slowly," Heitz said. "He kept going for the takedown and was waiting for me to be sloppy on my counters. "It comes down to if you want to win it or not. If you put your heart into it, you can beat anybody." Green (50-1) had beaten everybody all season until falling 8-4 to Wells last week. This time the senior was the aggressor throughout, never trailing en route to a 9-2 victory. "It's not so much revenge," Green said. "I was in a bad mental state last week. I hope to perform even better next week at State." Green, who's being looked at by some of the best college wrestling programs in the country, took third at State last year, the county's only finisher. The 6-foot-8, 245-pound Maier had an easy time advancing to the heavyweight final, pinning his first three opponents. He couldn't turn West Torrance's Josh Gormley in the final, but took a 3-1 decision. Maier (40-1-1), who has already accepted a football scholarship to Arizona State, where he also may wrestle, didn't compete at the Masters last year. "He got himself together this year," Beresford said. "We had some long talks and he really got zeroed in. "He went from nothing to something in wrestling. Last year he had the potential. This year he got it done." Now the Scots have an chance to win their first State title."A lot of us have been talking about it," Maier said. "We want to win a State championship for coach Beresford." Cal State women split DH The Sun THOUSAND OAKS Junior right-hander Marnie LaFleur fired a complete-game for the Cal State San Bernardino Softball team and hit a tic-breaking two-run double in the seventh in a 6-2 victory in the first game or a doubleheader with Cal Lutheran on Saturday. The Coyotes were shut out, 2-0, in the nightcap. LaFleur allowed two runs and seven hits with three strikeouts and no walks in the opener for Cal State (3-1). Coyotes senior second baseman Tammy Shearer went 3-for-4 and scored twice. Senior center fielder Anne Cordaro and sophomore left fielder Tanna Cash;, a Colton High School graduate, both doubled and scored for COLLEGE SOFTBALL ROUNDUP Cal State. Cash allowed two first inning runs and six hits while fanning two and walking none to take a complete-game loss for the Coyotes in the second game. UCR 4-4, CAL BAPTIST 3-0: RIV-ERSI DE The UC Riverside (4-2) swept Cal Baptist behind senior Laura Fay's four-hitter in the nightcap. Fay struck out four and walked four. Sophomore center fielder Missy Laramie went 3-for-3 with two doubles and one RBI and junior fielder Laura Dresmann went 2 l'or-4.
