It's going to be a long time before someone comes along to equal the success story of David Berg, the former Bishop Amat pitcher and A student who walked on at UCLA and became one of the college baseball's best relief pitchers with his sidearm delivery. Berg, now a junior, has picked up where he left off last season after helping the Bruins win a national championship. In three games, he hasn't allowed any runs while allowing one hit in 6 1/3 innings. Every save he gets he increases his own school record.

Don't be surprised if the Southern Section Division 1 champion in baseball comes from the Sunset League this spring. As good as the Trinity and Mission leagues will be, the Sunset is loaded at the top. Huntington Beach returns all of its top players from a team that knocked off No. 1-seeded Mater Dei last season in the playoffs. Fountain Valley has picked up an outstanding transfer infielder in Willie Aguilar, a junior from L.A. Cathedral. He's expected to play second base, because the shortstop is Oregon-bound Daniel Patzlaff.
