As usual, Cal State Northridge won the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. softball championship. And, as usual, the Lady Matadors dominated the conference's postseason awards presentations. Debbie Dickmann, Northridge's junior All-American, was selected the CCAA's top pitcher in a vote of coaches. Center fielder Lisa Erickson was selected most valuable player. Also gaining first-team all-conference honors were pitcher Heather Lindstrom, catcher Char Schmidt, first baseman Pam Smith, shortstop Anna Getherall and outfielders Lonnie Artis and Erin McGuire.

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.

Cal State Northridge cast aside its safety net Tuesday, serving notice at a meeting of the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. that it will secede from the NCAA Division II conference after almost three decades of affiliation. Northridge, which is scheduled to attain Division I status in all sports but football beginning in the fall of 1990, will remain a CCAA member for one more year. The move came as no surprise to other conference schools, whose athletic representatives had convened in San Luis Obispo for a regularly scheduled business session.

The Division II men's basketball selection committee apparently wasn't impressed by the California Collegiate Athletic Assn's. five-team expansion. The Division II tournament pairings were announced Sunday and, with expansion having brought the defending national champion to the CCAA and made it the best conference in the country, the CCAA has three teams in the tournament--the same number it had last year.

The Cal State Northridge men's basketball team will try to sew up the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. title tonight at 8:05 in its regular-season finale at Cal State Los Angeles. The Matadors, who are 10-3 in the CCAA and 18-9 overall, hold a one-game lead over Cal State Los Angeles and need to win to prevent a post-season playoff. Cal State Northridge, a winner in 13 of its last 16 games, fell to the Eagles, 62-59, in the teams' last meeting at CSUN on Feb. 1.

Small college or not, pressure to produce in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. has already claimed two basketball coaching jobs this month. Jim Parks announced his resignation at as the men's coach at Cal State Bakersfield at season's end, and George Fisher resigned as Cal Poly Pomona's men's coach a week later.

The California Collegiate Athletic Assn. is about to test its own treatment for a most dreaded malady: Anonymity. In an effort to gain more exposure, earn more money and get more teams into the NCAA Division II postseason tournament, league officials voted last year to adopt a postseason playoff.

The California Collegiate Athletic Assn. baseball race is off to its usual start, which is to say frantic and jumbled. The second-place team has fewer losses than the leader. The fourth-place team has fewer losses than No. 3. Mix in the last-place team beating the leaders and lots of extra innings and you get an idea of a typical CCAA baseball season. Coach John Scolinos of Cal Poly Pomona, the winningest active coach in the nation, has seen it all before. He likens the league to a candy store.

Lost time is hard to make up. But it has been a fact of life this season for Cal State Northridge baseball Coach Terry Craven and many of his Division II peers. First, the schools lost 20 to 30 games in the preseason when the NCAA limited the number of games in a calendar year to 60. (The limit has since been raised to a maximum of 20 games in the fall, 60 in the spring.) Then, heavy rains last month forced postponement or cancellation of many regular-season games.

As the first full week of California Collegiate Athletic Assn. baseball unfolds, coaches in what is thought to be the toughest Division II baseball conference in the country see Cal State Dominguez Hills in the driver's seat. If that is true, says Toros Coach Andy Lopez, then his team better have seat belts, crash helmets and lots of bandages and aspirin on hand.

The past is not easily left behind. Just glance around Bob Hiegert's new office in this suburb east of Oakland. He has come here to be the commissioner of the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. Hiegert speaks enthusiastically about the job of overseeing a conference of 12 Division II schools located in such far-flung locales as Stanislaus, Calif., and Phoenix. He is clearly excited about the future.

Dave Yanai, in his 16th season as the Cal State Dominguez Hills men's basketball coach, says the Toros can win the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. title. That may seem far-fetched when considering that Dominguez Hills lost its top two scorers from last season and Cal State Bakersfield, the defending league champion, has four returning starters from the NCAA Division II national championship team. The Toros (16-10) placed third in the eight-team league last season with a 7-7 record.

The Toros pounded out 22 hits--the most for the team this season and the second-highest total in school history--in the second game. It was the most runs Dominguez Hills has scored since an 18-6 win over Biola in the first game of the season. Dominguez Hills is 25-20 and 11-11 in the conference.

A deep, veteran UC Riverside team is favored to win the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. basketball title, and is seen as the top small-college team in the Southland going into the season. The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference hasn't had a repeat champ in seven years. Pomona-Pitzer won its first title in 63 years last season but this time around could be Poetry in motion at Whittier--or a Stag party for Claremont-Mudd.
