A comforting fact for men's basketball teams in the American West Conference was supposed to be that they at least had Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to kick around. Not anymore. Cal Poly, 1-26 last season when it was considered the worst Division I team in the nation, has turned the AWC on its collective head with a 9-9 record. The Mustangs beat Cal State Sacramento, 102-86, in a conference opener last weekend.

The American Dream: No matter who you are, where you come from or how low you are on the economic totem pole, you can still work your way to the top. The American West Conference Dream: No matter how badly you play in your nonconference games, if you have three good days, you can still be a champion. What a country. The Cal State Northridge football team, which is in the middle of a nightmarish 1-5 season, still has as good a chance as any other team of winning the American West Conference.

For Carlene Jones, the last round is the best round. The Cal State Northridge freshman leaped a season-best 18 feet, 7 3/4 inches on her final attempt to win the long jump, leading the Matadors to a sweep in the event at the American West Conference track and field championships Friday at Cal State Sacramento's Hornet Field. "If I'd had a little more pop off the board, I would have had a 19 [foot jump]," said Jones, who jumped over 19 feet in high school.
