LOMPOC - The shark that attacked a surfer at Surf Beach was a great white, estimated at 15 to 16 feet in length, according to the Santa Barbara County sheriff. Ralph S. Collier, a shark expert from the Shark Research Committee of Chatsworth, made the determination Wednesday after examining the body of Francisco Javier Solorio Jr. and the board he was using when the shark attacked, according to a statement from the sheriff's office. Collier said he estimated the size of the shark based on the distance between teeth marks on the board.

In the Coastal Conference, Simi Valley (9-2), which won its first playoff game ever last week, an overtime tie-breaker against Arcadia, brings a team very similar to the host Warriors--ground-control offense and stingy defense. The focus of the Simi lineup is running back M. J. Nelson, who rushed for more than 1,000 yards and had 11 touchdowns on a combination of runs, receptions and interceptions. In his career he has more than a dozen touchdown runs of 50 yards or longer.

"Even now, although we say it's out, the problem is, until this thing either doesn't surface or resurfaces for sure, nobody knows," said Darryl D.

For the second time in four games, Bob Dunivant, the Burroughs High football coach, has been accused of running up the score. And for the second straight time, Dunivant has given a simple reply--tough.
