Harvard-Westlake in Semifinals

September 16, 2000

Jim Singleton and James Bloomingdale each scored three goals and Harvard-Westlake High cruised past Chadwick, 13-3, Friday in a quarterfinal game of the Jim Toring Memorial Invitational at Harvard-Westlake.

Although Harvard-Westlake has dominated in its first two tournament games, Coach Rich Corso said the pressure is on the Wolverines to win the title.

"There's a lot at stake for us because it's the Jim Toring tournament and we lost it last year," Corso said.

"It's our tournament [in memory of] the best player we've ever had in the history of the school and for one of the greatest young players of all time."

Jim Toring, a former Harvard-Westlake and UCLA All-American and national team member, died in April 1998, one week after being hit by a bus on a Paris street. He was 23.

The Wolverines (4-0), who last year lost in the tournament final to Los Alamitos, 7-5, will play Dos Pueblos in a semifinal at Belmont Plaza Pool at 10:30 a.m. today. The championship game is scheduled for 3:30.
