La Verne Damien's turnaround season continued Friday night when the Spartans survived a nonleague shootout with Hacienda Heights Los Altos and prevailed, 42-35, at Damien. Damien improved to 3-0, with previous victories over Covina Charter Oak and Claremont. The Spartans lost to all three teams to begin last season, when they started 0-5. "Our team has been playing with confidence all season," Coach Scott Morrison said. "But you can't help but gain more with each victory."

Despite the migration of film production from Southern California, the Los Angeles region saw double-digit percentage gains in feature-film production in the first three months of this year. Feature films generated 1,588 production days in the first quarter, a 24% increase over the same period last year, according to figures released Tuesday by FilmL.A. Inc., the nonprofit group that handles film permits for the city and county. The category outperformed its five-year quarterly average by nearly 40%, although the figures were still well below peak levels in the late 1990s.  Additionally, the films were mostly lower-budget projects, those with  budgets of under $75 million.

Tom Grieco proved Friday night that Capistrano Valley High School is more than a passing fancy as he rushed for 112 yards and 2 touchdowns to lead the Cougars to a 30-24 win over Los Altos in a first-round Southern Conference playoff game at Cougar Stadium. "They couldn't stop him," said Capistrano Valley Coach Dick Enright. "With Grieco, we have power. We're not just a passing team. He and Erik Hannah came through for us."

When Hacienda Heights Los Altos baseball Coach Keith Prager arrived at practice Monday morning and saw the dugouts had been painted royal blue, he immediately knew who the culprit was. Mario Romero, a junior catcher, has spent nearly every weekend since last summer working on the Conquerors' field along with his father, Mario Sr., and often his mother, Carmen. The Romeros' handiwork will be on display again today during a Southern Section Division IV semifinal against visiting El Segundo (24-9).

It may have been the quietest 209-yard rushing performance in Southern Section championship history. So fierce was the defense of Hacienda Heights Los Altos that Mike Liti's big night was nothing more than a footnote. Instead, Los Altos won its third championship in four years, defeating Liti and Santa Ana Foothill, 27-10, for the Division VI title before 8,020 at Edison Field.

If there was any question how quickly Bishop Amat High's football team would adjust to new Coach Don Markham's offensive system, it was eliminated quickly in an easy 31-0 victory over highly regarded Rubidoux last week. Things figure to get much tougher for the Lancers when they play host to Los Altos at 7:30 p.m. Friday in La Puente. The two San Gabriel Valley powers met for the first time in recent years in 1984 and Bishop Amat won, 14-0, in a defensive struggle. The rematch could be similar.

Teammates and coaches have inundated the junior transfer from Pasadena Muir with stories about the teams' swapping Miramonte League and Southern Section championships over the last four years. Friday night at Charter Oak, Fuller proved he got the point.
