Janet Sherman wore the blissed-out expression of a lottery winner. Grinning from ear to ear, the Cal State Northridge softball coach stood beside the model of a softball stadium that would rival any in the nation: seating for 2,700, lights, a concourse with concession stands and a clubhouse. The works. "This takes any other stadium I've ever seen to another level," Sherman said.

With one slice of sun still peeking over the Santa Susana Mountains on Tuesday, the host Cal State Northridge softball team was trying mightily to complete a doubleheader sweep of 11th-ranked Minnesota. As a Minnesota runner bolted for home with the potential winning run in the seventh inning, the Matadors' Tamara Ivie came through. Ivie's clean handling of a bunt by Mischel Doerr and a quick throw to first base to beat a diving Doerr forced the game into extra innings.

Cal State Northridge softball Coach Janet Sherman told her team Saturday that she didn't care how the Matadors beat Loyola Marymount in a season-opening doubleheader--just as long as they won. The Matadors carried out Sherman's wish, using a triple play, a two-out game-winning hit and a bulls-eye throw from center fielder Jamie Herrington to nail the tying run at the plate in the second game to complete the sweep of unranked Loyola Marymount, 3-1 and 1-0, at Valley College.

The walls of the office still are cluttered with many of the same photographs, posters and plaques. A hand-made sign, "There's No Crying in Softball," retains a prominent position. Nowhere in the Cal State Northridge softball office does it say, Under New Management. Former assistant Janet Sherman has been coach of the Matadors for almost two weeks and seemingly little has changed.

That brassy, hard-hitting bunch who made Cal State Northridge an NCAA Division I softball powerhouse is gone. And with them went Gary Torgeson, the former football-turned-softball coach who retired in July after guiding the Matadors to four NCAA Division II titles and eight national championship appearances in 13 years. It's the dawn of a new era at Northridge. For the most part, the Matadors are starting over. New coach, new team--and indubitably a new image.

The "Saturday Night Live" season premiere skit on Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedys was disgusting and in bad taste. With all that is happening in the world today, you would think the writers could find something else to ridicule. Didn't they realize they were desecrating the memories of all those people?

The week of practice was not in vain for the Cal State Northridge softball team. The Matadors, who played their Big West Conference finale on May 6, learned Sunday they had earned a 10th consecutive NCAA Division I playoff berth. "I'm feeling very fortunate that we got in [the playoffs]," Coach Janet Sherman said. Sherman believed the Matadors were on the bubble after a third-place conference finish and a so-so showing against ranked opponents.
