The latest CIF Southern Section poll is out with little change in the rankings.
Sant Monica schools continue to make their mark in the boys’ volleyball Division 3 poll with Crossroads holding the five spot and Santa Monica at number seven. Brentwood sits just outside the Division 3 rankings and St. Bernard missed being in the Division 5 poll.
In baseball, Malibu remains in the number two position in Division 6 after sweeping Santa Clara and Windward breaks into the rankings at tenth.
Beverly Hills is the only westside team to be ranked in boys’ tennis at number three in the Division 2 poll.
Culver City won in thrilling fashion Thursday afternoon after rallying back in extra innings to defeat Beverly Hills 7-4, sweeping their opening series of Ocean League play.
A walk sent Timothy Stewart to first base, where he visited briefly, after a Max Akita bunt advanced him to second. Stewart stole third, then eventually made his way home after a bad throw by the Normans catcher that sailed over the head of their third baseman that made the game 5-4.
Akita advanced to second base on the error, then scored when Juan Alcala singled to right field. Alcala came home after a double by Michael Netzel making the score 7-4 and capping their rally in the 10th inning.
The Centaurs started the game with a run by Jay Sterner produced from a Stewart double to left field. Daniel Hennessy joined the action in the fifth inning with a double to center field bring home Darion Sylvester and Netzel.
This was not the performance Beverly Hills wanted coming off a 68-40 victory against Santa Maria in the first round of the CIF playoffs.
The Normans were outplayed in every aspect by El Dorado in rout to a 68-25 hammering on Saturday night.
“I’m not happy the way we played today,” head coach John Braddell said.
His unhappiness showed when Beverly Hills turned the ball over on back to back possessions to walk into halftime with a 44-19 deficit.
“We had too many turnovers in the first half,” Braddell said “That killed us.”
It didn’t get better for the Normans, who only mustered four points for the entire third quarter, which came off of free throws.
The struggles continued after a sequence of turnover, missed lay-up, turnover, and missed lay-up ensued after the Normans scored the first basket of the fourth quarter.
Chants of HAWKS echoed through swim gym despite this being a home game for the Normans, it felt as if El Dorado was right at home.
Jazz Anderson had 10 points for the Normans, but played limited minutes in the second half. Brooke Salas had 24 points and 6 steals for El Dorado.
It was no surprise that Windward had little trouble in their opening round game against Costa Mesa, but the Wildcats crossed the triple-digit mark in a 100-21 to begin the Division 4AA playoffs.
Jordin Canada nearly had a triple-double with 26 points, nine steals and eight assists. Courtney Jaco also scored 26 along with eight rebounds and Kristen Simon had 17 points and 11 rebounds as top seeded Windward was never challenged in the game.
St. Monica’s second-half defense gets them past St. Matthias
