Long Beach Shows Plenty Title IX Growth BY MIKE GUARDABASCIO SPORTS EDITOR

they played the top Moore League opponents Wilson, Lakewood or Millikan, they didn’t have to do so twice in one week. That meant they got to send junior pitcher Chris Castellanos (#16) to the mound for all six games, and the lefty did his job. After losing to Lakewood in late March, Castellanos beat Millikan twice and then Wilson and Lakewood once each by a combined score of 9-3. He carries a 1.19 ERA this season with just 36 hits in 53 innings of work. The performance against Wilson on April 17 was historic in its own right as Castellanos threw a perfect game. “Last year, the stats were not much dif-

The world of sports is filled with incredible physical skill sets: hulking strength, lightning speed, even dizzying intelligence. But a look back over the sports landscape in America in the last 40 years shows that none of these things have had the impact of 37 words in 1972’s Education Amendment. Title IX reads, simply: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Despite making no mention of sports or athletics, Title IX had a profound and permanent impact on America’s sporting world. Now, 40 years after its passage, many of its positives are obvious. According to Sports Illustrated’s 40-year retrospective issue, the number of high school girls participating in sports in 1972 was 294,015; in the school year 2011-2012, that number is 3,173,549. Those girls have higher grades, and fewer self-esteem issues than girls who don’t play sports —they are more likely to graduate high school, and much less likely to commit suicide. In Long Beach, of course, high school

League Titles All Come Down To Today BY JJ FIDDLER

SPORTS EDITOR

After 78 baseball and softball games in the Moore League this season, it’s still going to take the last day of league play to figure out who are the champions on the big and small diamonds. And in a season that has seen a lot of fantastic pitching and a few historic performances, it makes sense that the oldest and most historic rivalry in Long Beach would decide it all. Poly baseball (23-6, 10-1) last won the Moore League in 1985. Last week they clinched at least a share of the crown, but a win tonight over a streaking Wilson squad will earn them sole possession of the league, and the No. 1 seed headed into the

CIF Division 1 playoffs. If Wilson wins, it’s a three-way tie with Lakewood joining the two loss teams. Wilson softball (20-7, 10-1) hasn’t won any part of the Moore League in 20 years. On Tuesday they clinched a share of the crown, but a win tonight against an overachieving and dangerous Poly team will keep them away from a tie with Lakewood atop the league. As is always the case with long, arduous baseball or softball seasons, the story is more than the box score of season record. Baseball: Poly vs. Wilson, 6:30 p.m. @ Blair Field The Poly Jackrabbits had the fortune of good scheduling this season. Each time

Chavez Follows Family Golf Tradition STAFF WRITER

INDEX

About eight years ago, when Jordan High senior Enrique Chavez would head to the driving range for golf practice, his little brothers and sister would tag along. Pretty soon, mom and dad were ferrying the entire Chavez clan to Skylinks or the Lakewood Country Club on the regular. It turned into a family pastime, a bonding ritual for an already close-knit family. That tradition was punctuated by little Ricardo, the youngest of four Chavez golfers, 10 years old when he first picked up a club. Enrique may have started the family obsession, but Ricardo is no second fiddle.

“He likes to say that he’s better,” Ricardo laughs, adamant that Enrique, now 25, can’t hang with him on the links. “We’re pretty competitive.” They may do battle on the scorecard, but the Chavez family is extremely supportive of one another. They passed down tips and tricks, Enrique reading strategy in golf magazines and feeding advice to his siblings. Jonathan and Ana went on to play for Jordan, too. When it was time for Ricardo to tee off for Jordan, coaches knew what to expect. “The Chavez family has been like a dynasty,” says Jackie Minnis, Jordan golf head coach for 15 years, who is now retired and helps a few times a week. “That’s the reason we have a guy in Ri-

cardo that may make it to CIF.” An invitation to the CIF Individual Tournament was just out of reach last week, as Chavez missed it by two spots; the top seven Moore League Individual Tournament finishers make CIF, and Chavez finished ninth. All of Long Beach’s CIF spots went to Wilson golfers, but Chavez did his school proud by finishing second among non-Bruins. With elastic limbs and a creative mind, Chavez is perhaps most dangerous when he’s in trouble — missing a green or a fairway. Years of experience and a fearless attitude have dug him out of many a sand trap to save par. He’s working furiously on his short game, which Minnis (Continued on Page 3B)

ferent, and the records were identical,” said Poly head coach Toby Hess. “But last year we were 1-3 against Lakewood and Wilson, and this year we can go 3-1… The one run games make all of the difference, and the mental toughness of this team is off the charts.” The Wilson Bruins have a pretty good pitcher as well. Senior Chase DeJong (#34), a guaranteed MLB draft pick this June, carries a 0.94 ERA and has struck out 91 batters over 66.2 innings pitched. He was on the losing end of the Castellanos perfect game, and close losses were something of a habit this year for the Bruins. They were 6-6 in one-run games in 2012, and for one stretch in late March and early April, Wilson played 12 straight games in which one team scored less than two runs. They were that team nine times but only lost five times, so the high-wire act will be put to the test tonight. Softball: Wilson vs. Poly. 7:30 p.m. @ Joe Rodgers Stadium The Wilson Bruins have been slowly building to this moment, and it’s no secret that this is their time to make it happen. When Chris Leveque took over as head coach three seasons ago, he saw a bunch of freshman talent and two sophomore pitchers he could build around. So far, so good, as the Bruins have gone a combined 28-6 in the Moore League behind pitchers Loren Stavrou (#38) and Hannah Duarte (#8) who have

“This group ... they know that with these pitchers, this is our chance.” —Chris Leveque paced a team that just finds a way to win. They won two playoff games last season by the score of 3-2 with late offensive heroics in both games. “This group has seen three different coaches and they know that with these pitchers, this is our chance,” Leveque said. “All they do is rise to the occasion, so that’s what I expect (tonight).” The one team with nothing to gain, and therefore nothing to lose, is the young Poly Jackrabbits. Freshman pitcher Anessa Cepeda (#37) and sophomore catcher Merina Ili (#30) are the battery and heart of a squad that’s found their rhythm late. Just this month, Poly has taken Lakewood and Millikan to the final at bats, but both times they lost by just one run. “They always play us tough,” Leveque said of Poly. “I’d say they’re more dangerous now than ever. We need early runs.” It has been the year of the pitcher in Moore League baseball and softball, so the smart money is on the best pitching performances winning the night.

Title IX (Continued from Page 1B)

girls’ sports were already a thriving community, and had been for decades. Poly’s girls’ basketball team has a history dating back to 1904, and the school formed one of the state’s first girls’ athletic leagues. In 1907, 1908 and 1909, the Poly girls’ would win three state championships, steamrolling their competition. Along the way, they defeated USC’s freshman basketball team, and Poly’s boys’ team. That tradition remains today. At almost every school in Long Beach, the lion’s share of the championships belong to girls’ or women’s teams. At Poly, the most successful teams of the last decade have been the girls’ basketball and girls’ track teams, which both set state records for consecutive titles in the last few years. At Long Beach State, 49er teams have won 12 national championships—eight of them won by the women’s badminton, women’s field hockey and women’s volleyball teams. It’s been said that Long Beach’s long-lost status as a beach resort town gave young women more freedom and agency than less free-thinking communities at the turn of the century, and that Long Beach’s women’s critical role in WWII weapons manufacturing only solidified that. One thing is clear: Long Beach’s girls’ and women’s teams were already championship caliber before the passage of Title IX. But anyone doubting its ne-

cessity need only consider two examples: Billie Jean King and Susie Atwood. King, a trailblazer to the core, was Sports Illustrated’s first-ever female Sportsman of the Year (an honor she received in 1972), and is a member of every tennis Hall of Fame you can Google. One of the greatest tennis players ever, King won 12 Grand Slam titles in addition to winning the highly-publicized Battle of the Sexes against Bobby Riggs. King attended Poly in the late 1950s and early ’60s, and her sense of pride in her school was — and remains — resolute. In a 2005 Sports Illustrated article celebrating Poly as America’s best high school, King said of the “Home of Scholars & Champions” sign on the school’s façade, “Oh God, I loved that sign. I loved its message. Every morning, I would pause in front of it and just breathe it in to remind me of my purpose. Whenever I’m back home in Long Beach, I drive by the school just to get a glimpse of it for inspiration.” Yet as inspired as King was by that credo, and despite her

indisputable standing as one of Poly’s and Long Beach’s greatest champions, she never got to play a single point wearing green and gold. The sport she would go on to achieve such great things in wasn’t offered for girls then. The same is true for Atwood, the Hall of Fame swimmer who was at Millikan just a few years too early. She actually didn’t wait until she’d graduated to achieve success, traveling to compete at her first Olympics in 1968 at the age of 15, going on to win two medals in 1972, and being honored as the World Swimmer of the year six times, including once while still at Millikan. But she, too, didn’t get a chance to win a CIF or Moore League medal for the Rams, because they didn’t have competitive swimming for girls. As with any sweeping piece of legislation, there’s no doubt that Title IX has created many difficulties. Long Beach State fans who feel that Title IX killed their football team apparently forget that a lack of attendance and money actually helped, but they’re not wrong that Title IX is

a big hurdle for why it couldn’t be brought back (an equal number of scholarships would need to be added for women’s sports, effectively doubling the cost). But for every hurdle Title IX creates, it also affords an opportunity, and a promise: that if the next Billie Jean King or Susie Atwood comes along, they’ll be given a chance to compete and etch their name at the bottom of Long Beach’s long list of high school and college trailblazers.

says is already lethal. “He has this kind of boldness,” she says. “You’ve got a 30-foot putt and you’re going for it? And you expect to get it? He doesn’t overanalyze. He has the fundamentals at an early age, so now he can execute.” Chavez came to Jordan as perhaps the most advanced fresh(Continued on Page 4B)

man the program had ever seen. As a sophomore, he finished 38th out of 140 in the 2010 Knabe Cup, the best showing for a Jordan player ever. If he can reach his goal of making the CIF Individual Tournament, Chavez will break new ground for the Jordan program. “We start from scratch,” says Jordan golf head coach Brian Hibma. In a program where most kids are picking up a club for the first time as freshmen, Chavez is as close as Jordan gets to a prodigy, and has been a picture perfect mentor to his young teammates,

especially when it comes to the etiquette of the game. “They’re basically coming to school in September and get a club in their hand in November and I tell them, ‘Oh by the way, you’re on varsity’,” Minnis says. “A lot of kids around, the dad plays golf and the kids play golf. Well, at Jordan, you just don’t have that.” The team is 4-10 overall this season as of press time, and even for a dedicated player like Chavez, there are no easy roads. He lives near Jordan, which isn’t exactly flush with green space. Skylinks and Lakewood CC are close enough, but he doesn’t have the experience at places like Big Rec and El Dorado like the

Moore League competition he faces. Minnis and Hibma have gone above and beyond to help their learning players — she traded in her Mustang for a Dodge Caravan, he bought a Ford Excursion. Without the budget for buses, these are the official team vehicles. “Even just to expose them to this different world, that they don’t know anything about, is huge,” says Hibma. “Their only exposure to the game is Tiger. It’s a learning experience and something they can take with them the rest of their lives.” In the short term, Chavez is focused on his postseason aspirations. But he’s also prepared himself nicely for what comes

next. Chavez earned a 4.0 GPA in the fall and hopes to attend either Cal State Dominguez Hills or Long Beach. He also wouldn’t mind following Jonathan and Ana to Long Beach City College, although budget cuts forced the school to scrap their golf program while the siblings Chavez were both on the roster. “I’m kind of the underdog,” Chavez says. “When people hear Jordan, they don’t really think about golf. But I think I could have a shot at it.” Hibma says he thinks the Panther program is on the rise, thanks in large part to the Chavez family and other assistants like pro player Jim Carson, who instructs at the Long Beach Golf Center and

has spent countless hours with Ricardo. Chavez has had a team of support. Still, when it comes down to it, he’s become a quality player thanks to his own dedication. Minnis says she hopes that improvements to the Jordan High campus might lead to a small practice facility, and prays that Chavez achieves his dreams both on and off the course. Whatever happens in the future, people like Carson will be willing to help and Brian Hibma will be guzzling gas to give his players new experiences. And Ricardo Chavez will be somewhere, anywhere, smacking dimpled balls into the Long Beach sky.

LONG BEACH STATE: NOTEBOOK BY TYLER HENDRICKSON STAFF WRITER

Beating rivals Cal State Fullerton in any sport is always enjoyable for Long Beach State’s teams and their fans. Winning two games on national television in a weekend sweep to take sole possession of first place in the Big West, though, is on a whole different level. Thanks to 21 combined runs from their offense and some lock-down pitching, Long Beach State softball was able to enjoy that experience. With just two series remaining in the regular season, the games against the Titans were an opportunity to get some breathing room. The 49ers outscored Fullerton 21-3 on the weekend to extend their winning streak to seven games, and open up a two-game lead over Pacific, with three games remaining. Strong pitching was no surprise, as senior Taylor Petty and sophomore Erin Jones-Wesley were a dominant pitching duo. The offense was the biggest factor, coming through with clutch two-out hits and peppering the ball all over the field. The ‘Niners had 35 hits in the three contests, including 10 for extra bases. Sophomore catcher Karli Sandoval was the leading force on offense, going 7-for-11 with three RBI and three runs scored while providing a solid backstop behind the plate. Nalani St. Germain had three RBIs in game two to give her the team lead in that category with 28, while Ashlynn Booker overtook the team home run lead with a two-run shot during Sunday’s 11-0 victory. Petty was nearly unhittable in the circle, going 10 shutout innings in her two starts, allowing just eight total baserunners and striking out 14 while earning wins seven and eight on the season. She has now won seven consecutive starts after her return on the last day of March, which was also the start of the Big West schedule. The 49ers have gone 14-4 during that time and have now won five straight series. Thanks to their charge through conference play, the 49ers have improved their record to 26-22 overall, and look like favorites to win the Big West. With three teams tied in second place, Long Beach will face the leader of that chase pack this weekend when they host defending conference champion Pacific (33-18, 12-6) for a three-game set. The action starts with a Friday afternoon doubleheader with games at 1 and 3 p.m., then the regular season finale at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Track & Field Looking to defend their 2011 Big West Championship, the 49ers got off to a great start during opening weekend. Following the heptathlon and decathlon competitions, the women sit in first place with 19 points and the men are in second with 11 points. The women had three top-five finishers in the heptathlon, led by Sara Macey in second. She was joined by Kristen Kiefer in fourth, who won the 800m with a personal-best time of 2:19.21, and by Phylicia Johnson in fifth. On the men’s side, sophomore Dillon Fox was consistent across all decathlon events and got a third place finish. Senior Marc Horist earned fourth place victories in the discus and pole vault. Long Beach State returns to Anteater Stadium in Irvine to conclude the championships this Friday and Saturday. Women’s Tennis With the NCAA Tournament starting this weekend, one 49er knows that she’ll be competing even after the team is through. Senior Anais Dallara, named Big West Player of the Year, has been selected for the NCAA singles championships on May 23-28. Dallara is the new career wins leader at Long Beach State. She was one of 14 automatic selections to the 64-player field, and joins Jing Chen (1998) and Hannah Grady (2006, ’08) as the only 49ers selected for the honor. She will lead her team into the NCAA Tournament as the 43rdranked 49ers play an opening round match against the 33rdranked Arkansas Razorbacks, at 10 a.m. Friday at UCLA. Men’s Golf Following a seventh place finish in last year’s Big West Conference Championship, the 49ers looked primed for a better performance this season, and they got one. As the 39th-ranked team in the nation, they had reasonable hopes of winning the tournament, but came up just short. Long Beach shot their lowest round on the final day of the championship, but came up just one shot shy of UC Davis, losing out 858-859. Trailing the Aggies by seven shots, Long Beach posted a six-under 282 on the final day to get heartbreakingly close to the top of the leaderboard. Senior Kevin Lim shot a teambest 68 in the final round to lead the team’s surge, finishing tied for ninth overall on the tournament. The top performers for Long Beach were senior Kevin Roy and junior Philip Chian, (Continued on Page 6B)

City College Roundup BY TYLER HENDRICKSON STAFF WRITER

Although the Vikings fell short of the postseason, they still had many memorable moments from the 2012 baseball season. Most notably was the 10-inning no-hitter by sophomore starter Steven Gallardo, who was one of eight Vikings to earn All-South Coast conference recognition in 2012. Gallardo was the SCC Pitcher of the Year in 2011, and made a strong case for the award this season. He came up short of that distinction, finishing behind league MVP Taylor Jimenez and his 7-0 conference record. Gallardo post-

ed a 4-3 mark in the SCC, a 1.58 ERA, and a conference-leading 69 strikeouts to finish on the AllSCC first team. He was joined on the first team by sophomore Edwin Santiago, who had five saves in his 14 appearances out of the Vikings bullpen during league play. The lone Viking position player to earn first-team honors was sophomore third baseman Justin Moore, who posted a .319 batting average and stole a conference-best 12 bases on the year. On the second team were freshman starter Jake Angus (3-2, 2.16 ERA) and freshman catcher Jai-

me Valle. Freshman pitcher David Aispuro, freshman infielder Nate Alcafaras, and sophomore pitcher Danny Ittner earned honorable mention selections. The Vikings lost four of their final six games of the season to finish the year under .500 at 1718, and most struggles were at the plate. They finished the year with just a .230 team batting average and a paltry .270 slugging percentage. Of their 262 hits, only 38 went for extra bases, just 14.5%. Things may be in flux in the bullpen as just three players who threw a pitch in 2012 will be back next year. Softball The 2012 season could be a rebuilding year, as the Vikings

finished 20-20 and missed the playoffs for just the third time in the last 22 years. Five Vikings received all-conference recognition this week, and the three freshmen honored will have the responsibility of bringing the program back to the postseason next year. Leading the freshman class was Shanise Compton, who led the team with a .442 batting average in league play to go along with two home runs and 14 RBI. She was the only LBCC player selected to the first team. On the second team was freshman starting pitcher Frances Campoy, who led the conference with a 1.86 ERA while throwing a no-hitter and two one-hitters on the season. Rounding out the freshmen was Liz Melendrez, who had a teamhigh 23 RBI in SCC games and earned an honorable mention. A pair of sophomores made the second team, leadoff hitter/centerfielder Danielle Hannan and

who were tied for sixth place with scores of 214. The second place finish was the highest for the 49ers since 2004. On Monday, the NCAA announced the 49ers made it into this year’s tournament as an atlarge bid. They’ll start postseason play May 17 in Georgia.

first baseman Cassie Garcia. Hannan was the table setter at the top of the lineup, leading the Vikings in walks, stolen bases and runs scored. Garcia provided a big bat in the middle of the lineup, contributing 21 RBI and 17 runs. With Campoy back in the circle and some key offensive weapons returning in Compton and Melendrez, the Vikings have visions on returning to the playoffs in 2013. Football The Vikings were champions of the Central West Conference in 2011, but won’t be able to defend that title next season as they move to the SCFA National Central Conference. Next season’s schedule was released this week, and it includes difficult conference games against defending Southern California champion Mt. SAC and last season’s undefeated Riverside City College. The season begins Aug. 31 at Fullerton College. Women’s Water Polo The 49ers had three players earn all-conference accolades for the 2012 season. Junior Melissa Matheson, who had a team-high 43 goals, and sophomore Coriann Snyder were named second team all-conference, while sophomore Chelsea Parks was selected to the honorable mention team. Snyder and Parks were tied for second on the team with 39 goals each.

Regatta Fetes Armed Forces Day There are several older holidays in our country that have fallen into unobserved or underobserved status. One of those is Veterans Day, which used to be called Armistice Day. I am just old enough to remember when folks wore paper poppies on their lapels on Nov. 11 — the day that World War I ended — to honor those men who fell “in Flanders fields where poppies grow” (folks in Canada and other Commonwealth countries still wear them). Armed Forces Day is a bit of a reversal: it is a relatively new holiday that never really caught on. A 1947 law created a “National Military Establishment” that combined the leadership of all the armed forces of the United States. In 1949, that combined leadership was named the Department of Defense. The same year a single, unified day of observation was created by President Truman to replace Army Day, Navy Day and so on. It was called Armed Forces Day. There is still an Armed Forces Day (it happens to fall on Saturday, May 19, this year), but I doubt it will make much of a ripple on the news. There’ll be a few parades. But it is in observation of the day that Navy Yacht Club Long Beach — a yacht club created for the local military community and veterans — will run the annual Armed Forces Day Regatta this Saturday, May 12. The event is part of the Long Beach Harbor Invitational Series,

a set of eight races in two groupings that started in March and run through October for members of Little Ships Fleet Yacht Club, NYCLB and District 13 of the United States Power Squadron. It will be a bit different. There’ll be two races, the first a “sprint race” of two or three miles in overall length and the second a longer race that will start in the Long Beach Outer Harbor off the Peninsula and finish in Alamitos Bay. The race is sailed among boats that compete under the Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF) handicap system. For details, go to www.nyclb.org. Belmont Plaza Pool For those of you accustomed to reading about events at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool and have not seen anything, there is a good reason — there haven’t been any. Last week the Plaza Pool hosted the Moore League swimming championships, but that event got laid on pretty fast and never hit the Internet. There are no more special events scheduled until the fall. So that means, for the rest of the spring and all summer, the Plaza Pool is pretty much open for public use. Make a point to go visit, if for no other reason than to see this city landmark.

Go Beach! I might be thought less than objective when I write about the success of the Cal State Long Beach sailing team, what with my being an alumnus and all. When folks learn of the team’s exploits, however, they will understand. In the team’s first full season after a hiatus of a quarter of a century, the 49ers qualified to go to the semi-final level of the InterCollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) National Intercollegiate Coed Dinghy Championships. The team is off to Annapolis. The semis are this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 12 and 13, and will be sailed at the United States Naval Academy. If they do well, the next step is the ICSA/ Gill National Collegiate Championship Regatta the week after Memorial Day in Austin, Texas. The CSULB sailing team is a club team rather than a varsity team and therefore is not sponsored by the school, so all travel expenses are borne by the team members, their families and sponsors. Together they got organized to send skippers Dustin Durant and Shane Young, crews Kristen Barca and Lauren Hobson, alternates Foya Lazare, Nicholas Santos and Chase Young and coach Henry Sprague to the regatta.

Three Up, Three Down BY JJ FIDDLER

SPORTS EDITOR

While toiling in non-conference play this weekend with the Loyola Marymount Lions, the Dirtbags (24-21, 11-4) fell a game behind Cal State Fullerton in the race for first in the Big West. But all Long Beach State can do is win the games in front of them, and this weekend they did that. Three Up Sweep! — The Dirtbags swept their second weekend series of the year, and won their seventh straight three-game set by taking down the Lions on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. In the series opener, Long Beach State was down two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning but came back to tie it before Lakewood’s Jeff Yamaguchi took a bases loaded walk in the 10th inning to cap

a 2-for-3 day. On Sunday, Juan Avila blasted a high changeup over the “blue monster” at Page Stadium, a three-run home run that sparked the Dirtbags to a big lead on the way to a 5-4 victory. Finally on Monday night at Blair Field, Long Beach State scored four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to rally in a backand-forth affair to sweep, 7-5. Bullpen CG — In the three games against the Lions, the Dirtbag bullpen combined to throw nine innings while only giving up two hits and two earned runs. Eddie Magallon who picked up the win on Monday, found the game while stalwarts like Josh Frye continued to get out of jams. 5-4 Fighting — In a strange scoring coincidence, the Dirtbags have played eight games this season that ended 5-4. They’ve won

five of them, and they are 2-1 in 5-4 games against LMU. Three Down Worst Case Scenario — Senior starting pitcher Shawn Stuart came into Monday night with a record of 5-0 and a 2.64 ERA. However, LMU got to him in

the sixth inning and he couldn’t get out of it, even though head coach Troy Buckley gave him a chance after a long meeting on the mound. Stuart went 5.2 innings and allowed nine hits and five runs while striking out four and walking two. Catch As Catch Can — Behind the plate, Kellen Hoime and Royce Murai combined to go

1-for-7 over the weekend with one run scored and one RBI. Back On Track — Since the LMU series was a Saturday/Sunday/Monday set, that throws off the season-long rhythm the pitchers have with rest days and bullpen sessions. Is it easily adjusted to? Yes. Is it hard to find three negatives after a team sweeps? Yes.

U.S. Men’s Volleyball To Hit Long Beach Nets BY MIKE GUARDABASCIO SPORTS EDITOR

The USA Olympic Men’s Volleyball team hasn’t punched their ticket for London yet. The defending gold medalists want to be one of the 12 teams competing at this year’s Olympics, and a big performance this week in Long Beach State’s Walter Pyramid would take care of it. The NORCECA Men’s Continental Olympic Qualification

Tournament is taking place this week. It began Monday and runs until Saturday, May 12. The United States will compete against teams including Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico and Cuba, with the tournament’s championship team qualifying for London to represent the NORCECA (North America, Central America and the Caribbean) Confederation. This is America’s first time hosting the tournament, and obviously Long Beach’s too. The U.S. Men’s National Volleyball team features a number of local greats, including head coach Alan Knipe, currently on leave from Long Beach State and a Hall of Fame athlete and coach at that university. In addition to Knipe, five former 49ers are currently on the roster: David Lee, Paul Lotman, Scott Touzinsky, Robert Tarr and

David McKenzie. In an interview conducted shortly after the site was announced, Knipe said, “We’re hoping a lot of local fans come out.” How the Americans qualify through pool play Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week will determine where they start in the quarterfinals, which will take place tonight, May 10. The semifinals will be May 11 and the championship match is at 8 p.m. on Saturday. How the Americans qualify through pool play will determine what time they’re playing on Thursday, but you can check GazettesSports.com each night to track their progress and see when the next day’s schedule. Tickets are $10 to $20 per day, and can be purchased at the Long Beach State Athletics website, or at the Walter Pyramid box office.

MOORE LEAGUE: NOTEBOOK BY MIKE GUARDABASCIO SPORTS EDITOR

It was a week that saw a host of Moore League champions crowned. Next week we’ll run down CIF playoff previews, but for now, here’s a look at many of your regular season Long Beach champions. Track It was a good day to be a Moore League track fan last Friday, and perhaps an even better day to be a Poly Jackrabbit. As has been the story for the last several years, the Poly boys’ and girls’ teams swept the league titles, as the girls won their 18th team title in the last 21 years, and the Poly boys won their 18th straight. Other than Poly tradition running on, the story of the day was the ascendance of Millikan. The Rams have often played third fiddle to Poly and Wilson, but were the big winners after the Jackrabbits at the varsity level. Of the 32 events contested, Poly won 21 of them, Millikan won seven, Wilson won two, and Jordan and Cabrillo each won one event. The Jackrabbits got four of their 21 golds courtesy of Richie Smith, who was also a star wide receiver on the football team (he’s headed to Arizona State on a football scholarship). Smith ran anchor on the champion 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams, and also won individual titles in the 100 and 200-meter races. Jordan’s lone win came from LaTroya Franklin, who beat out

Poly sophomore Ariana Washington (in her first action since being named Athlete of the Week at the Penn Relays) in the 100, 12.00 to 12.24. The sprints between those athletes were the most-anticipated races of the day, with Franklin taking round one, but Washington getting back at her in the 200, winning 24.13 to 24.37 in an event that Washington performs in among the nation’s elite. Provided everything goes smoothly at CIF prelims next week at Trabuco Hills. Of Millikan’s seven wins, only two came on the girls’ side (with junior Destiny Talalemotu in the shot put and Brianna Valitz in the discus showing the program’s skill in the throws). Their other winners on the boys’ side were Shakir Smith (who won the 400), Alex Castro in the 300 hurdles, and Pablo Cardenas. In the 1,600, Cardenas ran down Poly’s Jazeel Garcia to claim a close victory, in perhaps the day’s most exciting finish. CIF prelims are this Saturday

at Trabuco Hills High School. Boys’ Tennis Jenteel Alcafaras started his Moore League boys’ tennis career off with a bang last year, winning the singles title as a freshman. This year, call it more of an exclamation point — he won the title as a sophomore as well, staking his claim to Moore League supremacy with a win over Poly’s Alex Nagourney 6-2, 6-3. David Gaster of Poly will be the league’s third representative in the CIF-SS Individual Tournament. In doubles, Ricky Rideout and Sidney Tan of Lakewood claimed the Moore League title, defeating Poly’s Nagourney and Braxton Greco 6-1, 6-3. Wilson’s Ryan Murchison and Cameron Smith will be the third representative from the league in the CIF tourney. Boys’ Golf Wilson senior Andrew Morgan shot the low round of the day to secure his second consecutive Moore League Individual Championship. His four-under par

round of 68 included six birdies. Five of Morgan’s six birdies came over the opening seven holes, including four in a row on holes four through seven. Morgan finished the tournament with a 12-under par total of 276. This is the second-lowest 72-hole total in the history of the Moore League. James Oh (Lakewood High School) in 1999 holds the tournament record of 14-under par 274. This is the 21st time

that a Wilson Bruin has won the Moore League Individual Championship. Wilson finished with the top seven spots to claim all of the Moore League’s spots in the CIF-SS Southern Individual Regional, which takes place starting at 7 a.m. this Monday, May 14 at Skylinks Golf Course.

THURSDAY Final Day Of Moore League Baseball Just short of three months after we started the 2012 Moore League baseball season, it’s time to finish it and crown a champion. While Millikan hosts Compton (3:15 p.m.) it will be Jordan and Cabrillo in the first game (3:30 p.m.) of a Blair Field doubleheader. The second game (6:30 p.m.) between Wilson and Poly is

Moore League (Continued from Page 9B)

were crowned champions of the league. On the girls’ side, Poly and Wilson were crowned cochampions, as Wilson won the finals meet despite not winning a single event, putting them into a tie for the title with the Jackrabbits, who had their first undefeated Moore League dual meet season in more than 10 years. On the boys’ side, Wilson kept what may be the Moore League’s most impressive streak going, winning the title, something they’ve done every year since the 1972 season. The Bruins were able to fight off Lakewood and all-star Daniel MacArthur to win, 534-401. Neither Wilson team actually won an individual event, but the Bruin depth was able to carry them. Baseball Poly ended one of the school’s longest Moore League title droughts last week, beating Jor-

the biggest game of the day, and maybe the year, as the Jackrabbits can win the Moore League crown outright, or the Bruins can create a three-way tie atop the league ladder with Lakewood. Final Day Of Moore League Softball After Jordan visits Cabrillo and Millikan hosts Compton at 3:15 p.m., Wilson will host Poly at Joe Rodgers Stadium (7:30 p.m.) for Senior Night. If the Bruins win, they will be the outright Moore League champions. If the Jack-

rabbits can pull of the upset, Wilson and Lakewood would share the crown. FRIDAY LBSU Softball vs. Pacific, 49er Softball Complex, 1 & 3 p.m. The Big West-leading 49ers (26-22, 14-4) have won seven straight games after an impressive sweep at Cal State Fullerton last weekend, and this weekend they host second place Pacific (33-18, 12-6) in the final weekend series of the season. The Tigers helped the 49er cause by dropping two of three to UC Davis last weekend, getting shut out,

dan 20-1 to clinch at least a share of their first Moore League title since 1985. The Jackrabbits hit four homers (one from Jeff Turley, two from Kevin Maxey, and another from Peter Fierros) to keep sole possession of first place. The story from last week, though, was Wilson beating Lakewood 3-0 in a nine-inning thriller to re-enter themselves into the title hunt, which was unimaginable after back-to-back 1-0 losses in league had them in third

place all alone. Ace pitcher Chase DeJong outdueled Lakewood ace Shane Watson to get the win, as neither pitcher took real damage until the ninth, when Wilson got a clutch RBI hit from pinch-hitter Jake Reinhardt, off the bench in his first at-bat of the game. DeJong threw 139 pitches in the marathon, 39 more than what Wilson coach Andy Hall said was the normal “drop dead” number to pull the highly-scouted prospect. He yielded just three hits and struck out 10.

3-0, in the series finale. A big hitting team, Pacific has racked up 80 doubles and hit 34 home runs to bolster a staggering .450 slugging percentage. Junior pitcher and utility player Nikki Armagost (#5) leads the way for the Tigers, in the circle and at the plate. The Andover, Kansas, native is hitting .433 with a .495 on base percentage and a .634 slugging percentage. She leads the team with 18 doubles to go with 38 RBI and five home runs. Armogost has started a team-high 20 games with a team-low 2.29 ERA. She is 11-7 with 76 strikeouts in 119 innings pitched. LBSU Women’s Tennis vs. No. 33 Arkansas, NCAA Tournament @ UCLA, 10 a.m. Long Beach State will start the NCAA Tournament in Southern California for the fourth time in its nine NCAA appearances, traveling to UCLA to face No. 33 Arkansas in the first round of the postseason. The Razorbacks (12-13, 3-8) were selected as an at-large team, while Long Beach State (18-5, 8-0 Big West) arrives at the Big West champion. With a win over the Razorbacks,

the 49ers would face the winner of No. 1 UCLA and Eastern Kentucky at 3 p.m. Saturday. The Colonels earned an automatic bid after winning the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament. LBSU Track & Field, Big West Championships @ UC Irvine Long Beach State continues the Big West Championships this weekend (Friday-Saturday) with the main events at Anteater Stadium. After the heptathlon and decathlon, the women are currently in first place with 19 points and the men are second with 11 points. Dirtbags vs. UC Davis @ 1 p.m. While the Dirtbags (23-21, 114) were taking on non-conference opponent Loyola Marymount last weekend, Cal State Fullerton (3014, 12-3) jumped them in the Big West standings. But, the Dirtbags will visit seventh-place UC Davis. The Aggies (18-25, 6-9) took two of three from Cal Poly last weekend. Junior third baseman Paul Politi (#24, 6’0” 195 lbs.) leads the team with 24 RBI to go with a .324 batting average and .400 slugging percentage with 11 doubles.

Chase DeJong, Wilson Baseball

Rick Smith, Poly Track

Anais Dallara, LBSU Tennis

Karli Sandoval, LBSU Softball

DeJong was a warrior last Wednesday night against Lakewood, throwing 139 pitches in 8.2 innings, allowing just three hits in a shutout Wilson victory, 3-0 in nine innings. He struck out 10 batters in the win, which puts Wilson back in title contention. Then on Saturday against Santa Monica, the senior went 3-3 at the plate, with 3 RBI, in an 8-4 victory for Wilson, their eighth in a row.

Smith is going to Arizona State as a wide receiver, but the speedy senior could have gone D1 in track, as well. Last week at the Moore League finals, he shone brightest in a field full of stars, winning gold medals in the 100, the 200 and as the anchor on Poly’s 4x100 and 4x400 teams. In both of his individual races, the exhausted Jackrabbit turned on the jets to come from behind and win in the final 30 meters.

Dallara didn’t play last week, but could have been honored any week of the season, which saw her go undefeated in singles against Big West opponents. Last week, the conference office announced that Dallara was the Big West Player of the Year, capping a season which saw her go 10-0 in the conference, and break the school’s career singles win record, and single-season wins record. She was also named first-team All-Big West in doubles with partner Laura Bernard.

What a weekend for the sophomore Sandoval. 49er fans had been craving some offense to support their stellar pitching, and their catcher provided it, as Long Beach swept Fullerton to open up a two-game lead at the top of the standings. Sandoval was a big reason why, going 7-11 with 3 RBI and 3 runs scores in the three games. The 49ers scored 21 runs against their rivals, the highest output in a weekend so far in the Big West.

Welcome back to By the Books, where we break down how all the Long Beach teams are doing in the local and national polls. Baseball Poly lost a close game to Crespi over the weekend, which we expected to negatively impact their No. 5 ranking in Division 1’s CIF poll. But the Jackrabbits actually moved up to No. 4, and are currently in one of the four seeded positions, with just one week of play remaining. Lakewood and Wilson also both are ranked, with the Lancers moving down to No. 9 and Wilson moving up to No. 8. In the LA Times SoCal poll, Poly paid for that Crespi loss by falling from No. 7 to No. 8. Wilson re-enters the rankings at No. 15 after having been unranked the previous week. The Lancers are still on top in the Times poll, at No. 10. Softball At one point or another, Lakewood, Millikan and Wilson have all been ranked in the top five spots in the CIF Division 2 softball poll, and both the Lancers and Rams had held the No. 2 spot at one point. The problem for voters has been that those three teams continue to beat each other, forcing nearly weekly rearrangements of the Moore League teams. Last week, Lakewood was No. 2 in the poll, and Millikan No. 6 — but as has been the story all year, the team left out made a mockery of the rankings, as Wilson beat both teams last week. For the first time all year, there were no changes in the location of the Moore League teams’ rankings, as Wilson surprisingly remains unranked, Lakewood holds onto No. 2, and Millikan stays at No. 6. With just one more week of play before brackets come out, it will be interesting to see if Wil-

son moves into the rankings, and if Lakewood can remain in one of the seeded top four spots. Boys’ Tennis The Moore League continued a slow slide down the CIF Division 3 rankings this week, as Poly falls from No. 7 to No. 8, while Wilson is ranked at No. 9. CIF competition begins this week, so this is the final poll. Boys’ Volleyball The final CIF rankings of the year were released last weekend, along with the CIF brackets, and once again, no Long Beach or Moore League team was to be found. While the city’s high schools continue to perform well on the field and in the rankings for more mainstream sports like baseball and basketball, it seems like boys’ volleyball may be retreating further and further away from the public school arena, and into private schools where more players are active in the club scene. Seven of the 10 Division 1-ranked teams were private schools in the year’s final poll. We’ll see in coming years if dropping divisions helps the Long Beach high schools get back to a competitive place. LBSU Men’s Volleyball Over the weekend, UC Irvine (last week’s No. 2 team in the nation) swept No. 1 USC for the NCAA national championship, which means we’ve got our final NCAA coaches’ rankings. The 49ers’ season ended a few weeks ago, but thanks to some surprising lower-ranked teams in their postseason tournaments, they still dropped a couple of spots. Ranked No. 6 last week, Long Beach State ends the season ranked No. 8 in the country. High School Track This week, the girls’ team is up to No. 7 in America on ESPN’s rankings, and they’re still No. 1 in the nation on the Nike Track Nationals rankings, used to determine who competes in Nike’s national championship meet in Oregon after the high school season has wrapped up. Both polls have Poly at No. 1 in California, making them favorites to repeat at state champions.

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holder’s rights against the real property only. THIS NOTICE IS SENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF COLLECTING A DEBT. THIS FIRM IS ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT ON BEHALF OF THE HOLDER AND OWNER OF THE NOTE. ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED BY OR PROVIDED TO THIS FIRM OR THE CREDITOR WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property.
