Cal State Dominguez Hills' most successful basketball team ever didn't go out with a bang, but it went down fighting. The Toros, who won a school-record 22 games, bowed out of the NCAA Division II regionals in Billings, Mont., losing to Alaska-Anchorage and dropping the consolation game to Cal State Hayward. The Toros, who went into the tournament with four straight victories, seemed to run out of luck even before the regionals began.

Pitcher Jodie Cox gets most of the attention at Quartz Hill High, but it was her battery-mate who gave the Rebels a charge Monday night in the Division I championship game of the High Desert Classic. Olaya Salazar, a 5-foot-3 junior catcher, threw out two baserunners in crucial situations and was two for three with a run batted in to spark Quartz Hill to a 2-0 victory over Golden League rival Highland before more than 500 at Lancaster City Park.
