Granada Hills Kennedy beat Chatsworth, 1-0, to win the City Section softball championship Wednesday, but the victory came with some controversy. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the second inning, Kellie Mason hit a line drive to second base that was ruled a catch. Ashley Waters then threw home for the double play, but the catcher did not tag Danielle Estrada, who was the runner from third. Kennedy Coach Craig Becker had Estrada return to third and tag up as Chatsworth left the field, and because Chatsworth didn't throw to third to appeal, the run counted.

Texas A&M finally got a hit off Cal State Fullerton pitcher Connie Clark, but it wasn't enough to keep the Titans from winning the College World Series softball championships, 3-0, in Omaha, Neb. Clark (20-2), who pitched two no-hitters against the Aggies, gave up just one hit while striking out eight in leading Fullerton (57-9-1) to its first NCAA title in four trips to the World Series.

After a seven-year drought in which it lost twice in the Women's College World Series championship game, had its 1995 national championship taken away and was banned from postseason play in 1998, the UCLA softball team won its first national championship since 1992 Monday, and may have begun a new era of domination in the process.

It ended the way it began--with a loss. And in between they endured classes in portable trailers, a mini-media circus, 52 victories and a steady climb in the national rankings. The Cal State Northridge softball team carried on despite the 6.8 earthquake, which nearly claimed the lives of two of its starters. Most of the team members were forced to find other housing after the quake. And getting to class was no small task.

Jennifer Lee, 13, throws a softball fast and hard and with more than a little pride that she can do it better than boys years older than she is. When she and her teammates play pickup games at school, some of the boys "get mad and jealous that we play better than them. They're just amazed and say: 'You throw like a boy,' " she said. Boys will be boys.
