1. Mater Dei What's not to like about the Monarchs? They reached the Division I finals last year and lost only one player. They have three pitchers who are very good. With all that depth, they'll have a lot of opportunities to win. 2. Pacifica Of course, Mater Dei lost three times last year to Pacifica, which has two pitchers, sophomore Amanda Freed and junior Toni Mascarenas, who are excellent. And while Mater Dei lost only one key player, Pacifica lost only two. 3.

Cal State Fullerton softball Coach Michelle Gromacki grabbed catcher Jenny Topping by the shoulders about an hour before the Titans' game Saturday against Washington and told her, "Your mind needs to be for us, not against them."

She thought it would be cool to play at the University of Washington after a successful career at La Habra High. It was cool, all right. She found out, firsthand, about the rainy weather in the Pacific Northwest. "I didn't like going for a week without seeing the sun," Topping said.

La Habra catcher Jenny Topping was ejected Thursday from the Highlanders' 3-0 nonleague softball victory over El Toro for breaking up a double play that fell under the malicious contact part of the rule book. Umpire Mark Mazur called it "an over aggressive slide." It raises an interesting question: When breaking up a double play, and not going out of the baseline, what constitutes a rules infraction? "She slid too late, too aggressive," Mazur said after the game. "That's a judgment on my part.
