Toni Mascarenas pitched a two-hitter with five strikeouts as seventh-ranked Pacifica beat host Rancho Alamitos, 1-0, Thursday in a Garden Grove League softball game. It was the sixth shutout for Mascarenas. Autumn Gwinner singled, stole second and third, and scored on a throwing error for Pacifica (14-5-1, 8-1-1). Julie Littman had two singles for Rancho Alamitos (10-6, 5-5).
Rancho Alamitos needed only 18 seconds and two plays to score its first touchdown Friday night, but the rest of the game turned out to be a grind. The top-seeded Vaqueros were able to grind it out, however, beating defending champion Aliso Niguel, 21-7, in a Southern Section Division VIII first-round playoff game at Bolsa Grande. David Vickers, playing with a sore foot that has limited his practice time for the last four weeks, gained 234 yards in 27 carries and scored all three touchdowns.
Halfbacks Alex Blanco and David Vickers have split the ballcarrying duties this season for Rancho Alamitos, and both have gained more than 1,000 yards. But with Blanco out for the year with a knee injury, Vickers had to carry the full load Friday night against Los Amigos. Vickers was more than equal to the task.
In his first start as a varsity player, Moukda Choulamany rushed for 168 yards and a touchdown, leading Rancho Alamitos over Pacifica, 21-7, in a Garden Grove League game Friday at Rancho Alamitos. Choulamany played wide receiver and running back, and saw limited time in his last few games because of an ankle injury. Choulamany, a 5-foot-6 senior, accounted for eight of the Vaqueros' nine rushing first downs.
Rancho Alamitos is back knocking at the Southern Section football championship door. Rancho Alamitos overcame six Culver City sacks Friday night to roll to a 20-6 quarterfinal victory over the host Centaurs. Coach Mark Miller's Vaqueros will be making their second appearance in three years in the semifinals after a quarterfinal loss slowed them a year ago. Jeff Byrd paced Rancho Alamitos, scoring three touchdowns by rushing for 214 yards in 24 carries.

"Mother About to Wash Her Sleepy Child" by Mary Cassatt is a hallmark of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's collection. Warm and fuzzily familiar yet strikingly modern, the 1880 painting has been admired by critics and the public alike since its arrival in Los Angeles 50 years ago - when the museum was still part of a multi-purpose institution in Exposition Park. And where, you might wonder, did the artwork come from? Cassatt was an American Impressionist who spent much of her life in France, so it's not surprising to learn that the painting belonged to collectors in both countries before going on the market at a New York gallery in 1945.

It is August when spacious skies soar above amber waves of grain in fields stretching from sea to shining sea. It is the month of the fruited plains and purple mountain majesties that inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write her anthem, "America the Beautiful," and that lured the masses west for a better life. Jonathan Bixby from Maine was one of those folks, and he hit it big. In 1881 he picked up 26,000 acres in what is today Long Beach. The property was Rancho Los Alamitos, part of a Spanish land grant earned by an intrepid soldier who marched north from Mexico in the 1760s.

Thanh Phan's pin at 119 pounds was a key win that helped Rancho Alamitos to a 50-30 victory over visiting La Quinta in a Garden Grove League wrestling meet Thursday night.
