With a nickname like the Roadrunners, one would think the College of the Desert basketball team would be somewhat quicker than it was Saturday night. Actually, Desert did a lot of running, mostly in an attempt to keep up with Ventura's speedy and relentless offense. It didn't work, though. In fact, it could not have been more ineffective. The Pirates out-hustled Desert en route to a 109-74 victory in the first round of the Southern California regional playoffs.

It was fitting that Pauline Schuette made the winning kill to give Northern Michigan its second consecutive NCAA Division II volleyball title. Not the best-known threat on the team, she was the one who made the difference in the title match as Northern Michigan defeated Cal State Bakersfield, 8-15, 15-13, 15-8, 15-13, for the championship at Bakersfield on Monday night. Schuette had nine kills in the first three games of the match, but she had 13 in the fourth game.

Don't be embarrassed if you can't tell the Lete brothers apart. Hardly anybody can. * Jim Knapp, Saddleback High School's track and field coach, thought he was speaking with Matt after the Sea View League championships last week, but later discovered he had been talking with his twin brother Mel. "You would think that after four years of having them around, I would be able to tell the difference between the two," said Knapp, who has headed the Roadrunners' program for 24 years.

Saddleback entered Thursday's game against Tustin with a four-game losing streak. It was a team that had nothing to lose. Tustin came in hoping to take the next step on its way to a playoff berth. The Tillers couldn't afford a loss, because its next four opponents have a combined 16-4 record. But the team that had everything to lose lost its poise and Saddleback shocked the Tillers, 21-20, at Santa Ana Stadium in front of a homecoming crowd of 1,500. It was not a pretty sight.

Beverly Hills' Jeremy Booth does not fit the image of a short, squatty catcher. In fact, during the 1993 season, Booth grew an inch and lost 15 pounds. He also grew as a baseball player. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound junior was the Westside's best hitter in 1993, leading his team in five offensive categories, including batting average. For his efforts, Booth has been named The Times' Westside Player of the Year. Richard Condon of Crossroads was selected the pitcher of the year, and Hollywood's Raul Grijalva, who turned around a struggling program, was selected coach of the year.
