Facing the possibility of a second defeat against Etiwanda in less than two weeks, Long Beach Poly turned to its biggest player. And Ryan Anderson, a 6-foot-8 junior forward, came up huge. Anderson took a pass from guard Alexis Moore for the go-ahead layup with six seconds remaining during a 67-64 victory over the host Eagles on Thursday night in a Southern California Division I regional quarterfinal. "Revenge always feels good," said Anderson, whose basket gave the Jackrabbits a 65-64 lead.

On Saturday night at the Arcadia Invitational, Long Beach Poly's Ariana Washington showed why she has won back-to-back titles in both the 100 and 200 meters. The Oregon-bound senior won the Invitational girls 100-meter dash in a wind-aided 11.38 seconds, the second-fastest in the nation under any conditions this season. She also anchored the Jackrabbits' 4x100 relay, which finished third. Poly's 4x400 relay of Hollie Harris, Autumn Wright, Kaelin Roberts and Ebony Crear won in 3:47.23.  Defending state pole vault champion Kaitlyn Merritt of Santa Margarita cleared 13 feet, six inches to repeat and Dos Pueblos senior Stamatia Scarvelis broke the meet shot put record with a throw of 52 feet, 1.25 inches and won the discus with a throw of 172 feet, seven inches.
