Fullerton softball Coach Scott Weber repeatedly has said the secret to his team's success this season has been hard work and team effort. But a large dose of sophomore Angie Fancuberta has been a big key for the Indians, especially in their run through the Southern Section Division II playoffs.

There's nothing Koa Farmer cannot do on the football field -- and that includes playing quarterback. The senior all-purpose back from Sherman Oaks Notre Dame took over for injured starter Grant Kraemer in the third quarter and engineered three scoring drives that helped the Knights beat La Puente Bishop Amat, 31-21, in a Serra League opener Friday night at Notre Dame. Farmer was honored before the game for his selection to the Blue-Grey High School All-American Bowl, to be played Jan. 11 in Tampa, Fla. The defensive backs coach for the South team is former Alabama and NFL star Mark McMillian, who was on the sidelines Friday.

LA PUENTE BISHOP AMAT (5-0) vs. SANTA MARGARITA (3-2), Friday, Saddleback College, 7:30 p.m.--Florida State-bound quarterback Chris Rix led Bishop Amat to the Division I semifinals last season. Now he's taking snaps for Santa Margarita. Rix would like nothing better than to beat the top-ranked Lancers. It won't be easy against an experienced Bishop Amat defense out to show him it's better to be a friend than foe.

With the CIF championship riding on every dribble, Ashleigh Sparks knew precisely what to do in the closing moments of Friday night's Southern Section Division 1A final. The 5-5 senior guard caught the inbounds pass, broke to the sideline, drove the length of the court and made a layup as time expired to lift Moreno Valley Canyon Springs to a 48-46 victory over La Puente Bishop Amat at the Anaheim Convention Center. Cheyenne Greenhouse had 24 points and eight rebounds and sank a free throw to give the second-seeded Cougars (20-9)

Heading into the Southern Section playoffs, Long Beach Poly Coach Raul Lara was unsure if his team was a legitimate title contender. The Jackrabbits emphatically answered that question with a 40-25 victory over La Puente Bishop Amat on Friday night in a first-round Pac-5 Division playoff game at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Long Beach. "We haven't redeemed ourselves just yet, but we played good enough to move on," said Lara, whose team has reeled off seven consecutive wins since losing its last three nonleague games.

La Puente Bishop Amat (5-0-1, 0-0) at Mission Hills Alemany (6-1, 1-0), 7 p.m. - Alemany hasn't lost a Serra League game since it joined the league in 2010, going 9-0. This should be one of the Warriors' toughest tests. Bishop Amat has balance on offense with quarterback Koa Haynes and running back Dionza Blue. Darren Andrews is a terrific receiver-defensive back. Alemany gave up 42 points last week in a win over Sherman Oaks Notre Dame. The offense scored 49 points and might need to equal that, putting the pressure on quarterback Devon Dunn and receivers Steven Mitchell and Devin Ross.

Now that the Rio Ruiz drama is over (he's not leaving to play for the 18U national baseball team), La Puente Bishop Amat Coach Steve Hagerty wants everyone to focus on his team's game against No. 1-ranked Anaheim Servite on Friday night at Cerritos College. "We're facing one of the best defenses around," Hagerty said. Last week, Bishop Amat defeated Los Angeles Garfield, 14-0, with quarterback Ruiz and receiver Adam Alcantara both not starting because they missed practice to play baseball.

It's astounding that people have paid me for some 35 years to watch and report on high school sports. It's more privilege than job because there's nothing like chronicling the stories and accomplishments of teenage athletes in Southern California, where future college and professional icons are raised and tutored. I witnessed another moment of wonder Friday night at Dodger Stadium. There was Rio Ruiz, an extraordinary baseball-football standout at La Puente Bishop Amat, hitting a two-run home run into the seats down the right-field line in the third inning, then touching home plate and pointing his fingers toward the sky as a salute to Austin Lacy, his former football teammate who died earlier in the day at the age of 18 of an undisclosed illness.

With 20 consecutive victories, La Puente Bishop Amat has thrust itself into consideration as the No. 1 baseball team in Southern California. Even more impressive, the Lancers have pulled off their feat without a true ace. Eight pitchers have earned victories this season, with 11 players getting the chance to pitch. Their pitching-by-committee strategy was on display this week at the Hard 9 National Classic. On Thursday night, the Lancers (20-2) defeated Anaheim Esperanza, 12-1, in the championship game at Cal State Fullerton.

The ball kept going and going until it hit the middle of the black screen high above the fence in center field at Cal State Fullerton, 410 feet from the plate. It was a prodigious two-run home run by catcher Bernardo Zavala of La Puente Bishop Amat in the fourth inning and helped lift the Lancers to a 2-1 victory over Lakeside El Capitan on Wednesday in a semifinal game of the Hard 9 National Classic. "It was a two-strike at-bat, and I threw my hands out there and got it good," Zavala said.
