Two former community college standouts are helping Cal State Bakersfield to another successful men's basketball season. Todd Jones, a junior swingman who played at Fullerton and Golden West colleges, has started every game for the Roadrunners (19-6) and has raised his scoring average to 9.6 points a game. He is considered to be one of the best defenders in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn., according to Bakersfield Coach Henry Clark. Jones is a 1998 graduate of Upland High.

Looking out at a sea of sixth-graders at Cesar Chavez Elementary School, Oxnard Mayor Manuel Lopez envisioned a roomful of future Cal State University graduates. He could see budding lawyers, doctors and teachers. Maybe even an aspiring city leader or two. Problem is, when Lopez showed up last week to lay out the steps necessary for the students to get into Ventura County's fledgling four-year college, most of the students had no idea the campus existed, much less what it would take to attend.

The Cal State Bakersfield softball program is a story of success. It is a perennial NCAA Division II force, winning three national titles from 1988 to '90. Coach Kathy Welter has won eight California Collegiate Athletic Assn. titles and has averaged 41 wins in her 15 seasons. It is no surprise that the Roadrunners are 32-8 overall and in first place in the CCAA at 20-4. This past week provided the test of the season for Bakersfield, ranked seventh nationally.

There are three freshmen redshirting this season at UC Irvine. Nothing better shows the direction Anteater Coach Pat Douglass thinks his basketball program is headed. A redshirt freshman is rare for the Anteaters, like a full house in Irvine's Bren Center for a basketball game. Near as Irvine officials can figure, there have been four or five redshirts in the last 20 years. So holding out center Adam Parada, forward Matt Okoro and guard Aras Baskauskas is quite a statement by Douglass.

John Goldhammer, track and field coach at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, says Elisha Peterson is like most others on his team. Only 18, Peterson is still improving as a distance runner. He's not a leader, not a captain. And physically, nothing stands out about him. "You couldn't tell him from any other college student," Goldhammer said. But Peterson is far from the average college student. Peterson enrolled at Harvey Mudd College when he was only 15.
