February 06, 1992

The Marshall High girls' basketball team may be young, but the Barristers are enjoying another successful season under fourth-year Coach Wendy Triplett.

The Barristers, who won City Section 3-A Division championships in 1988-89 and 1989-90, entered the week 10-4 overall and 4-0 in the Northern League.

Marshall is led by junior guard Maria Fulay, who is averaging 20 points a game. Fulay is one of only two players returning from last season's team, which was upset by Huntington Park in the 3-A quarterfinals.

Sophomore forward Leanne Quon and freshman guard Jamie Kogan are two of the young players who have stepped in to fill the void left by seven players who graduated.

"Compared to the last few years, this is not one of our stronger teams," Triplett said. "But we're improving. If we jell, we could do some things in the playoffs."

The La Canada girls' basketball team was sidetracked Friday when the Spartans lost a Rio Hondo League game to Blair, 44-40.

The defeat left La Canada (13-7) and Blair (12-6) tied atop the league standings with 5-1 records.

COMMUNITY COLLEGES

The Glendale College men's basketball team began the final portion of its regular-season schedule this week with an eye toward the playoffs.

Glendale was 12-11 overall and 2-2 in the Western State Conference Southern Division following Saturday's 70-57 loss to Valley.

The Vaqueros played College of the Canyons Wednesday night and will play host to West Los Angeles Saturday and Santa Monica next Wednesday. Those three opponents entered the week tied for first place in the Southern Division with 3-1 records.

Glendale Coach Brian Beauchemin said a decent record in the final six games should ensure his team of a spot in the 26-team Southern California playoffs.

"Our difficulty of schedule is very good," Beauchemin said. "My feeling is, if we finish at least 6-4 in conference, we'll get a bid."

The Glendale College baseball team suffered two big losses before its season even began when the Vaqueros lost All-Western State Conference players Mickey Moreno and Jose Robles for academic reasons.

Glendale then went out lost three consecutive games in the Foothill Citrus tournament.

Vaquero Coach Steve Coots has a team that includes 20 freshmen and six sophomores. Mike Regan, who batted .350 and was all-conference last season, is Glendale's top returning offensive player.

Sophomore right-hander Rock DeTolve is the team's top returning pitcher. DeTolve was 8-1 with a 2.28 earned-run average last season.

The Tigers lost to Pomona-Pitzer, 77-76, in overtime Saturday, dropping to 7-10 overall and 1-5 in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

The Tigers could have won the game in regulation, but sophomore forward Blair Slattery missed an uncontested breakaway layup in the final seconds.

Occidental, which plays six of its remaining eight games at home, begins the second round of SCIAC play Saturday at home against Whittier.

The Occidental College baseball team opened its season with a 7-2 victory over Pomona-Pitzer.
