Andy Connolly scored 15 points and teammates John Carolan and Steve Hurdle each added 10 as Chaminade cruised to a 71-52 victory over Salesian in a Santa Fe League game at Chaminade on Thursday night. The victory gave the Eagles a 7-2 record in league play and set up a showdown with first-place Cathedral (8-1) at Chaminade on Saturday night. Chaminade (12-6) took a 20-3 lead in the first quarter by forcing six Salesian turnovers with a stifling full-court zone press.

Representatives from the Catholic Athletic Assn. approved new leagues on Thursday, and for football only, L.A. Salesian was put in a league with Loyola, Bishop Amat and Gardena Serra. Salesian will appeal the decision to the Southern Section. Salesian won the Northeast Division last season. That's considered Division XIII in strength. Salesian has been adding transfer students in recent years, alienating some of its member schools, and that probably helped influence other schools to vote in favor of adding Salesian to the more powerful league.

Without playing even one league match, the Salesian High volleyball squad is already preparing to make a better showing in this season's playoffs. Last week, the Mustangs traveled to Las Vegas where they finished 2-5 in two days of competition. But the preseason record isn't what counts. "Our main concern is going higher (in the post season)," said Mustang Coach George Rodriguez, who started the volleyball program six years ago.

The football teams from Cathedral and Salesian high schools met last Thursday night in a regular-season finale. Since a berth in the playoffs was on the line, a big crowd would normally have been expected. But when the teams lined up for the national anthem, the bleachers were empty. There were plenty of fans who wanted to be there but, for this game, fans were not allowed. The gates were locked and several police officers were on hand to make sure there would be no problems.

The expulsion of a radical slum priest from his ecclesiastic order has silenced Haiti's most influential voice for the rights of the nation's poor. In expelling Father Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the conservative Salesian Order accused the populist Roman Catholic cleric of fomenting class warfare, calling him a "protagonist of destabilization." His ouster was announced Dec. 15 in a statement from Rome.

From age 12 to 15, Davon Moreland was a boxer. Then he tried football last season at Los Angeles Salesian High, and he discovered he had a knack for sacking quarterbacks. "I refuse to get blocked," he said. After recording 21 sacks as a junior playing end, Moreland can't wait to try to double his totals this season. "There isn't anybody who's going to put their hand in my chest," he said. At 6 feet 3 and 225 pounds, Moreland relies on his ability to never stop pursuing the player holding the football.

Jose Espinoza of Los Angeles Salesian lives for the moment one of his shots makes it into the net and starts all kinds of commotion. Two years ago as a freshman, his goal in sudden-death overtime gave Salesian a Southern Section Division V soccer championship. "I just started screaming," he said. "It's the most incredible feeling I've had in my life.

Having lived most of his life in a housing project in Watts, 16-year-old Marquis Ware of L.A. Salesian has encountered experiences he wishes never happened. The sounds of gunshots at night. The sight of black water flowing into a tub. The stress of deciding which is the safest path to walk. It's a peek into what motivates Ware each time he steps onto the football field or opens a book in a classroom. He's a 6-foot-2, 215-pound junior defensive end who had 14 sacks and 79 tackles as a sophomore.
