 The state champion in the 100 meters, Khalfani Muhammad, has graduated from Sherman Oaks Notre Dame and moved on to California, but there's plenty of speed left in the Mission League this spring. It starts with T.J. Brock, who had the fastest 100 meters time by a freshman last season. He transferred from Crespi to Chaminade and will become eligible next month just in time to compete in the Arcadia Invitational. Alemany's Dominic Davis ran 10.83 last week . Loyola has the fastest 400-meter relay time in the state and is led by Mekai Sheffie and Nico Evans.

PHOENIX - The Dodgers' bullpen, expected to be a strength, has struggled in Cactus League play. Brian Wilson and Brandon League - former All-Star closers - gave up four runs and got just three outs Monday as the Dodgers surrendered a lead in the eighth inning or later for the third time in six games. For Wilson, the runs were the first he has given up this spring. But League has given up four hits, four walks and five runs in 22/3 innings and the club's top seven relievers have a combined earned-run average of 4.07.

I believe it was that great baseball sage, Daffy Duck, who said of the Dodgers' bullpen: “What a predicament!” The Dodgers are flush with relievers. Stocked with veteran arms. Have three former closers backing up Kenley Jansen. Returned veterans J.P. Howell and Jamey Wright. The Dodgers are so completely stacked in the bullpen right now that barring injury, 2013 standouts Paco Rodriguez and Chris Withrow; Rule 5 draft pick Seth Rosin; another ex-closer, Javy Guerra; and hard-throwing phenom Jose Dominguez all do not figure to make the team.

Pat Garofalo may want to check the numbers before the Minnesota state representative next weighs in on NBA players running afoul of the law. To recap: Over the weekend Garofalo tweeted that no one would noticed if 70% of NBA teams folded with the “possible exception of increase in street crime.” He doubled down on the claim in an email to a website covering the NBA when he noted the league's “high arrest rate.” Turns out that...

 All hail the Trinity League. A third team, Santa Margarita, won a Southern Section title on Saturday night, with the Eagles defeating Brea, 53-46, in the 3AA championship game. Mater Dei and JSerra earlier won titles. Devonte Klines scored 15 points for Santa Margarita (23-8), which saw Brea rally and tie the game at 46-46 in the fourth quarter. But a three-pointer from the top of the key with 2:02 left by Joe Furstinger broke the tie, and Santa Margarita went on to victory. Jonathan Wallace led Brea with 12 points.

 The boys' golf season has begun in the City Section, but in the 5A league, the best player might be a girl. Freshman Tyra Tonkham of Sherman Oaks CES shot a 39 for nine holes using the men's tees at Encino Golf Course earlier this week, the best individual score among the four teams that played. She was unable to compete in this season's City Section girls' championship because Sherman Oaks CES didn't have a girls' team, so she's competing this season with the boys' team. "She's unbelievably consistent," North Hollywood Coach Steve Miller said.

Ventura St. Bonaventure, Westlake Village Oaks Christian, La Verne Damien and Glendora St. Lucy's have won their arbitration cases against the CIF Southern Section and will remain in their current sports areas for the upcoming re-leaguing cycle from 2014-18, according to the decision announced Friday by a retired judge. It will force the schools in the Northern Area, Mt. SAC and parochial areas to meet again and restart their re-leaguing process. Those areas already had created new leagues without the four schools.

Most baseball fans would say that Mike Trout is the best player in baseball today. And if they don't list him at No. 1, they would certainly have him in the top five. The Angels outfielder has arguably had the best first two seasons in baseball history. But he's not Albert Pujols. So, please don't ask Pujols if he is motivated to put up the same numbers as Mike Trout, as he was in spring training. “Can you imagine someone saying that to me?” Pujols told USA Today Sports.
