Talk about a shocker. Lee Masters, MTV's most popular and highest-profile exec, resigned Monday, citing his discontent with the 24-hour video network's corporate reorganization this spring, which had Masters working under new MTV president John Reardon. "I gave it a try for several months," said Masters, who was the network's programming chief. "But the new structure didn't give me much room for growth or authority."

Rio Mesa COACH: John Reardon, 22nd year LAST SEASON: 4-6; 5th place in league, 3-4 PLAYERS TO WATCH: Rio Mesa has not had a winning record since 1985, when it last advanced to the playoffs, and the once-mighty Spartans have won just seven league games since. Reardon sees only one solution: "We need a game-breaker, a kid who can rush for a hundred yards-plus a game or someone like that. I think you need one to be a championship team. And I don't know if we have one."

Camarillo 9, Rio Mesa 7--Ernest Rittenhouse booted field goals of 27, 42 and 20 yards, the latter the game-winner with 4:45 remaining, to lead the Scorpions at Rio Mesa. Rio Mesa had a chance to win the game with 49 seconds remaining, but Matt Zarit's 39-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide to the left. Rio Mesa played without starting fullback Geoff Freedman, who tore a muscle in his calf during practice earlier in the week and may be lost for the season, Coach John Reardon said.
