The Golden League softball title has returned to a familiar place, thanks to a key hit by an unfamiliar face. Nicole Means, a freshman right fielder known more for her strong arm than her bat, delivered a run-scoring single in the ninth inning Tuesday to give host Quartz Hill High a 2-1 victory over defending champion Highland and clinch a tie for the Rebels' ninth league championship since 1991.

Quartz Hill High Coach John Albee told his team to make each opponent work for every yard. That's just what the Rebels did, posting a convincing 21-3 victory over Paramount in a Southern Section Division II quarterfinal on Friday. In next Saturday's semifinals, Quartz Hill will play Hart at College of the Canyons. Tailback Jeremiah Harris rushed for 197 yards and two touchdowns in 15 carries, including a 20-yard scoring run that put Quartz Hill (7-3-2) ahead, 14-0, in the second quarter.

Senior quarterback Damein Kendrid ran for a touchdown and passed for another during a 2-minute 29-second stretch of the third quarter to lead Quartz Hill High to a 13-7 Golden League victory over Highland on Friday night. With Quartz Hill (4-1-2, 1-0-1 in league play) trailing, 7-0, midway through the quarter, Kendrid capped a four-play, 38-yard drive by running 13 yards for a touchdown. The drive was set up when linebacker Eric Gray recovered a fumble by Highland quarterback Jason Carr.

A defensive battle seems imminent when Burroughs and Quartz Hill square off in a nonleague high school football game tonight at 7:30 at Burroughs. Both defenses were stingy in victory last week. Burroughs yielded just 17 yards rushing and 101 yards total in a 23-8 win over St. Francis. Quartz Hill, a seemingly much-improved member of the Golden League, allowed just 65 yards rushing and 65 yards passing while posting a 17-0 shutout over South Bakersfield.

Danielle Day, who set a Quartz Hill High record of 10 minutes 45.20 seconds in the 3,200 meters in May, has returned to Lancaster with her family after relocating to Winter Park, Fla., this summer. Day, a junior-to-be at Quartz Hill, placed 10th in the 1995 Southern Section Division I cross-country championships.

That's the funny thing about magic. As suddenly as it appears--poof!--it's gone. Quartz Hill High came into Anaheim Stadium on Friday night with chests puffed out and chins held high. If this Southern Section Division I championship game against Loyola is close at halftime, then the rings will belong to the Rebels. After all, who had even challenged Quartz Hill in the second half this year? That list isn't long enough to fill a magician's tuxedo pocket.

Co-coach Don Crimin of Quartz Hill High told his track team earlier this week that he will retire at the end of the season, and he received a nice going-away present Thursday when the Rebels' boys and girls posted victories over Littlerock to clinch Golden League championships. Quartz Hill (5-1, 5-0 in league meets), led by double winners Troy Searcy and Jamaal Chase, won the boys' competition, 94-37.

On a brisk Friday night at Palmdale High, Quartz Hill smelled a Golden League title. And Palmdale was the worse for it. Quartz Hill scored 35 second-half points in annihilating Palmdale, 49-7. The win gave the Rebels a share of the league title and also status as the league's No. 1 representative for the playoffs. Palmdale, as it turned out, was just getting in the way.

Running back Demario Richard of Palmdale High might as well carry around his birth certificate, because it's the only way to convince people of his age. When he tells strangers how old he is, the reaction is always the same: "Wow!" He enrolled at Palmdale as a 13-year-old freshman. He'll be playing this fall as a 16-year-old senior. "I've been going through this since I was young," he said. "I remember one year we were playing against a team, 'We want to see his birth certificate.' I showed my birth certificate.

They had to hold the funeral at a big church in Palmdale. Matthew Ramsey , a native of nearby Quartz Hill , was just 20, but the young soldier's life had already touched many. Inside the crowded sanctuary were his buddies from childhood sports, former teachers and counselors, fellow sheriff's Explorers and other military veterans. His son, not yet 2 years old, was up front with Ramsey's young widow, pregnant again but barely showing. Images of Ramsey were projected on a screen: One showed him as a toddler, laughing atop his tricycle.

SOUTHERN SECTION Northwest Division: Westlake Village Oaks Christian (13-0) at Gardena Serra (13-0), 7:30 -- Serra has added to its already impressive stable of skill-position players since Oaks Christian routed the Cavaliers, 56-21, in last season's championship game. Quarterback Conner Preston, a transfer from Palisades, considers himself 2-0 against Oaks Christian -- in middle school flag football while playing for St. Matthews Parish School. Stopping UCLA-bound tailback Malcolm Jones, the Gatorade national player of the year, might be a stiffer challenge for Preston and the Cavaliers, but they won't be intimidated.

Senior fullback James Page scored the eventual game-winning touchdown on a three-yard run late in the third quarter.

Prosecutors have filed four capital murder charges against a man and his alleged accomplice who are accused of using a samurai sword and a baseball bat to chop and beat to death the man's ex-wife, her two children and a relative. Jae Hwan Shim, 39, the former husband of the dead woman, and Steve Kwon, 27, are accused of killing the victims June 23 and then setting fire to a house in the 43200 block of North 45th Street in Quartz Hill to cover up the bloody scene.

Freddie Edwards flied out to left field to begin Tuesday's Golden League baseball game between visiting Antelope Valley and Quartz Hill highs. Only 93 minutes later, Edwards, a senior center fielder for the Antelopes, flied out to center to end it. In between, Quartz Hill's Travis Bowser and Antelope Valley's John Narhuminti, two lanky, high-kicking left-handers, made short work of batters struggling to make contact.

Two Quartz Hill teenagers planned a Columbine-style attack on their old high school in February in meticulous detail, sheriff's deputies allege. Johnny Alvarez Casas, then 17, and his friend, then 15, stockpiled ammunition and bomb-making supplies in their homes, then practiced detonating improvised explosives in the Antelope Valley desert, deputies said. The younger suspect's name is being withheld because of his age.
