Her players, fellow coaches and friends say she does this every year at this time. Granite Hills softball Coach Cookie Sullivan struck again Saturday, announcing her retirement after the Eagles' 2-1, 12-inning loss to Patrick Henry in the San Diego Section 3-A championship game. But if history is any indicator, she'll be back. Her doting players have never failed to woo her back for another year.

On the morning of the San Diego Section 3-A baseball championship game last spring, Commissioner Kendall Webb presented a preposterous "what-if" scenario to Wayne DeBate, secondary athletics manager for city schools and a member of the section Coordinating Council. What if there were a bench-clearing brawl during the game? "We joked about it," Webb said. Fewer than five hours later, nobody was laughing. Incited by a collision at home plate, Mt.

Lin Files led off the bottom of the eighth inning with a bunt single and finished the inning by scoring the winning run as El Capitan defeated visiting Orange Glen, 1-0, in an opening-round San Diego Section 3-A softball playoff game. Files went to second on an error by the Orange Glen shortstop on what could have been a double-play ball. She then reached third on a wild pitch and scored the winning run on a passed ball. Orange Glen, which made three errors, finished 12-11.

Madison High School softball pitcher Lisa Glassford threw a one-hit shutout to defeat Vista, 2-0, in the semifinal round of the San Diego Section 3-A playoff at Escondido's Kit Carson Park. "(Glassford) pitched a great game. We just didn't have our bats going," Vista Coach Mary Trotter said. Glassford also knocked in the winning run with an RBI double in the fourth inning off Vista pitcher Karrie Schott, who took the loss. Schott had a perfect game until the fourth. Vista's No.

Last season, a young Poway High School basketball team surprised a lot of people when it beat Sweetwater, Mira Mesa and Patrick Henry to win the San Diego Section 3-A championship. A year later, it would be a surprise if Poway did not repeat. The Titans (23-1) face Morse (15-6), the upset team of the 1985 playoffs, in tonight's 3-A title game at 8:30 in the San Diego Sports Arena. Poway defeated Morse, 89-51, in an early season game played at Poway.

A few weeks ago, Helix High School's Rob Ippolito and buddies Tom Hall, Joe Smithey, Haval Abbas and little brother Chris entered a lip-sync contest. Like a Mike Tyson opponent, they were not expected to win, just survive and not embarrass themselves too much. But with lead mime Ippolito, the group overwhelmed the audience and the judges with its rendition of the Village People's "YMCA." Ippolito and friends stunned the pantomime world and took home the first-place trophy and $150.

Monte Vista felt confident going into Saturday's San Diego Section 3-A softball championship game, and with good reason. The Monarchs had been defeated only once this season and are led by one of the top pitchers in the county. But in the fifth inning of a scoreless game, Coach Charlie Costello said he and his team began to feel the pressure. And it wasn't until the top of the 10th that Monte Vista scored to defeat Mt. Miguel, 1-0, for the title. Grossmont edged USDHS, 2-1, for the 2-A title, and Bishop's defeated Mountain Empire, 1-0, in 1-A. "They stuck with it," Costello said.

After sweeping through the Metro Conference and the quarterfinal round of the San Diego Section 3-A volleyball playoffs without a defeat, Bonita Vista High must have been wondering when it would face a worthy opponent. But after 25 minutes of action Tuesday night, Bonita Vista's opponent--Poway--was probably asking the same question. Poway (14-2), which finished second in the Palomar League, disposed of second-seeded Bonita Vista, 15-4, in Game 1, then won the next two, 15-12 and 15-11 in advancing to Friday's finals at Torrey Pines High (7 p.m.)

David Strojny is finally satisfied. For the past nine months, Strojny, Vista's fullback, has been struggling with the realization that North County rival Fallbrook beat 1985 3-A champion Vista in the 1986 San Diego Section 3-A championship last December 13. "They stripped us of our crown and all of our awards," Strojny said. Friday night, Vista paid Fallbrook back, in an overpowering display of offense, rolling to a 50-19 victory in the Palomar League opener for both teams.

Depending on which coach was analyzing Wednesday night's San Diego Section 3-A baseball final, the game was decided either by Mount Carmel High School's agressive baserunning or by Santana's inability to make routine plays. Either way, the result was the same: Mount Carmel 5, Santana 2. The victory was the first for No. 4 Mount Carmel (23-6) in three championship games against Santana (No. 6, 21-8). The Sultans defeated Mount Carmel for the section championships in 1984 and 1986.

Santana Coach Jim Saska stood in front of the dugout after his team had defeated Grossmont, 10-4, Saturday in a San Diego Section 3-A baseball semifinal and tried to explain why Santana always seems to play better during the playoffs. "I can't really put my finger on it," Saska said. "I guess my kids just get fired up." As hard a time as Saska had explaining Santana's easy victory at the University of San Diego, imagine how tough the defeat was for Grossmont Coach Bill Gray.
