The road to the City Section 4-A Division title doesn't always lead through the South Bay, but that doesn't mean teams from the San Fernando Valley have had any more success in becoming champion. The field of contenders has slowly expanded since Carson High or Banning won 11 consecutive titles from 1976-86. But only two Valley teams--Sylmar and Granada Hills--have been able to wrest the title from the Southern Pacific Conference. Nobody knows this better than Taft Coach Troy Starr.

All 12 City Section baseball games involving 4-A Division teams were canceled Tuesday because of a coaches' boycott being conducted as part of the teachers' strike against the Los Angeles Unified School District. Each cancellation was decided independently, according to Commissioner Hal Harkness of the City Section. He said that his office had issued no directive about the games. Tuesday's cancellations marked the end of the regular season. The 18 4-A Division coaches whose teams have qualified for the playoffs have pledged to boycott postseason play as well.

Senior Chris Bruckner, soon to be spiking the ball for UCLA, had a match-high 26 kills Wednesday night as Chaminade High swept Montebello, 15-2, 15-10, 15-11, in a Southern Section 3-A Division wild-card playoff at Chaminade. Bruckner (6-foot-5, 190 pounds), a three-year starter who is averaging 26.5 kills and seven blocks this season, committed to UCLA earlier this year and said he will sign a letter of intent today. "You can't beat UCLA volleyball," Bruckner said of the Bruins, who have won 13 national championships since 1970.

The City Section office has postponed a decision on the fate of the 4-A Division playoffs until today, Commissioner Hal Harkness said Monday. He added that the 3-A Division playoffs will begin Wednesday as scheduled. The 4-A playoffs involving 16 teams also are scheduled to begin Wednesday, but that tournament has been jeopardized by a coaches' boycott as part of the teachers' strike against the Los Angeles Unified School District. Harkness met with district officials Monday after polling administrators at schools whose baseball teams have qualified for the playoffs.

As far as defending a title goes, it was a good way to start. Reseda High, the defending City Section 3-A Division boys' volleyball champion, bombed Sherman Oaks CES, 15-0, in the first game and surrendered only 10 points overall en route to a three-game sweep in a first-round match at Reseda. Reseda (13-2) posted a 15-0, 15-2, 15-8 victory behind a match-high 10 kills by senior Coley Kyman, who will attend Cal State Northridge in the fall. The Regents will play host to Venice in a second-round match Thursday.

Mission Viejo High School's softball team must feel as if it has a fairy godmother, because just when everything was going wrong, the team was granted its most desperate wish--a berth in the Southern Section 3-A playoffs. Mission Viejo (17-8) has made the most of its at-large berth, upsetting top-seeded La Mirada on the way to today's semifinal against Ramona (22-7) at 3:15 p.m. at Alicia Park in Mission Viejo. But things looked bleak three weeks ago. The Diablos struggled through the last half of South Coast League play and finished fourth at 14-8.

Few if any City Section baseball finals could boast the star power of the 1979 4-A Division championship game: Granada Hills High and John Elway against Crenshaw and its multitalented prodigy, Darryl Strawberry. Years later, Granada Hills Coach Darryl Stroh recalled that one of the game's most vivid images was of an embarrassed Strawberry, who was pitching, slipping while fielding a squeeze bunt in the Highlanders' 10-4 victory.

Was there really any other way for the season to end for the Chatsworth High boys' volleyball team? The Chancellors, who have experienced more ups and down than the Dow Jones industrial average the past month, hit a dead end in a match against University that had plenty of peaks and valleys. University outlasted Chatsworth, 15-13, 15-17, 15-13, 16-14, in the City Section 4-A Division quarterfinals in West Los Angeles.

Durell Price's headache didn't go away, but then neither did he. Price, a junior running back, carried 19 times for 166 yards and three touchdowns to lead Sylmar High to a 38-6 victory over Crenshaw in the City Section 4-A football championship game before an estimated 2,000 at El Camino College. During the week, and even before the game, Price suffered from migraine headaches, but he said that there was no way he would sit out this game.

When Durell Price steps onto the field today for the City Section Division 4-A championship game, he will be armored with more than just the required protective gear and a Sylmar High football uniform. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound junior running back will be equipped with two sources of inspiration, one on each of the powerful legs that have rushed for 1,770 yards and guided Sylmar's 13-0 season.

When other high school football coaches scoff at the records of his Southern Pacific Conference colleagues, Dorsey Coach Paul Knox finds it difficult to just sit back and listen. "I don't think it will ever stop," Knox said of the seedings for the City Section 4-A playoffs. "Every time there is a team with an undefeated record in league, they think they are better than a team from our conference with three or four losses." Most of the time, those skeptics have been proven wrong.

Playoff semifinal. Bases loaded, nobody out. Who you gonna call? Who do you think? To no one's surprise, El Camino Real High pitcher Randy Wolf, the prince of the postseason, trotted in from right field toward a fifth-inning brush fire to protect a two-run lead Friday at Birmingham High. A trip to the City Section 4-A final for defending champion El Camino Real hung in the balance, and the scales were tipping toward its opponent.
