Dan Monson, the basketball coach at Long Beach State, will feel like a proud father this weekend in Sacramento as he watches not one, not two, not three, but four high school players he signed to letters of intent last November play for state championships. "I can cheer for every one of them because they're in four different games," he said. Shooting guard Deontae North of Corona Centennial, forward Jack Williams of West Hills Chaminade, point guard Justin Bibbins of Torrance Bishop Montgomery and power forward Temidayo Yussuf of Alameda St. Joseph Notre Dame form a recruiting class like few others in 49ers history.

On Morley Field's cross-country course, site of Saturday's Kinney National high school championships, there is one obstacle that runners find particularly bearish--the Pershing Avenue hill. It's otherwise known as The Hill. The Hill is a steep incline up a dirt portion of the course that continues for a full city block. It usually weeds out the also-rans. No one ever kicks on the hill; it usually works the other way around, and the hill kicks them.

Saturday's high school football championship games: Santa Ana Mater Dei (11-2) vs. Bellflower St. John Bosco (13-0) at Angel Stadium, 8 p.m. Prime Ticket, 830 AM: It could be a rainy, muddy night for the Pac-5 Division championship game, and that could create some intriguing moments when each team's big offensive line tries to grind out drives. Mater Dei lost the first meeting, 24-2, in the Trinity League. Coach Bruce Rollinson will have his players fired up, but unless the Monarchs' defense puts pressure on quarterback Josh Rosen, the Braves will be tough to topple.

Did new rims at the Arrowhead Pond enable Stanford guard Casey Jacobsen to end his personal shooting slump at the Anaheim facility? Jacobsen scored a career-high 27 points on eight-of-13 shooting in the Cardinal's 78-65 victory over Cincinnati in a West Regional semifinal Thursday. It was his best shooting performance in more than half a dozen games he has played at the Pond in either high school at Glendora High or college. Stanford made 27 of 43 shots (62.8%).

Trying to get one last "live" look at some of the athletes they'll be recruiting in the next few months, San Diego State Coach Al Luginbill and a several assistants were spotted at the high school championships Saturday at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium. Perhaps they shouldn't bother with El Camino linebacker Abdul McCullough, a two-time Avocado League defensive player of the year.

Sherri Howard's excursion into the double-distance world of the 400 and 800 meters has been placed on hold for another season by her nemesis--injury. Howard, a three-time Olympian and 1980 graduate of Kennedy High, had planned to add the 800 to her racing repertoire this season, but tendinitis in both Achilles' tendons delayed those plans. "Things were going right on schedule until April," Howard said. "But then I started to get those old familiar pains."

No victory will ever be sweeter or more meaningful for Coach Troy Starr of Woodland Hills Taft High than the Toreadors' 41-29 upset of 10-time champion Banning Friday night in the City championship game at the Coliseum. With the offense executing to perfection under the guidance of junior quarterback Brandon Hance, the Toreadors (12-2) exorcised their nightmarish memories of consecutive defeats the last two seasons to San Pedro in the City final.

Friday's games, at Sacramento Power Balance Pavilion Boys Division V: Playa del Rey St. Bernard (26-8) vs. Alameda St. Joseph Notre Dame (26-8), 1:45 p.m. ? St. Bernard has gone from 4-23 last season to playing for a state title under first-year Coach Reggie Morris Jr. Sophomore Brandon Randolph is averaging 18.8 points. Senior Thurman Thomas is averaging 15.8 points. It remains to be seen if the Vikings have enough experience and size to knock off St. Joseph, which is led by 6-foot-10 center Brendan Keane, a Northern Colorado signee.

There was no downplaying the historic moment that Gardena Serra achieved Saturday with its 63-59 overtime victory over Oakland Bishop O'Dowd in the state Division III boys' basketball  championship game. The Cavaliers became the first school in California to win football and basketball state titles in the same school year. Not Santa Ana Mater Dei, not Concord De La Salle, not Los Angeles Crenshaw — no athletic powerhouse, private or public, had done it until Saturday.
