 There was so much interest in Austin Hatch's news conference on Wednesday in a lecture hall at Los Angeles Loyola that a TV station from Indiana went live with some of his comments. Hatch, the 6-foot-6 senior who moved to Los Angeles from Fort Wayne, Ind., to help his recovery from a 2011 brain injury suffered in a plane crash that killed his father and stepmother, is still not fully recovered to suit up for the Cubs. "My time is coming soon," Hatch said. Hatch was able to handle a nearly 30-minute question and answer session with confidence and poise and displayed unreal determination for a 19-year-old who has been through so much.

When Friday night's prep football games had been completed, the biggest surprise was which team held first place in the Serra League. That would be Encino Crespi (3-4, 1-0) after a 32-14 victory over Los Angeles Loyola. The other four league teams all have one loss. Sophomore Jalen Starks rushed for 183 yards, junior Daniel Collins returned an interception for a touchdown and senior Dylan Klumph kicked a school-record 54-yard field goal. It was a major turnaround for a Crespi team that has struggled at times under first-year Coach Troy Thomas, who has been holding players accountable for off-the-field issues, leading to weekly suspensions.

 Senior infielder Stephen Dubb and senior pitcher Jack Poulsen, both of Los Angeles Loyola, have committed to USC as recruited walk-ons. Previously committed to the Trojans is Loyola shortstop Angelo Armenta.
