USC defeated California, 10-1, in baseball at Berkeley Sunday to clinch its first division title since 1978, when the Trojans won the Southern Division of the Pacific 8. It became the Pacific 10 the next year, when the Arizona schools joined the conference. USC went on in 1978 to win its 11th NCAA championship, which was the Trojans' sixth of the '70s.

Fried. Baked. Boiled. Bakersfield College isn't choosy. The Renegades will take their potatoes any way they can get them. Saturday at Valley College, the Renegades took their potatoes in a bowl--as in Potato Bowl. Bakersfield, playing near error-free football, defeated Valley, 36-10, to win the Western State Conference Southern Division championship.

Rancho Santiago College played a sluggish first half but improved in the second half and easily defeated Bakersfield, 102-78, Wednesday in a Southern Division men's community college state tournament basketball game at Rancho Santiago. The Dons (27-4) need a victory over Santa Barbara City to advance to the state tournament for the first time since the 1982-83 season.

Don't look now, but the hottest--and perhaps the best--team in the Pacific 10 Southern Division is UCLA. That's right, UCLA, which hasn't been much of a factor in the conference since it won the title in 1979 with a 21-9 record. The Bruins' composite league record the last six seasons is 66-114, and their highest finish was third in 1980. All UCLA has done lately is win 10 of its last 12 conference games, raising its record to 11-5.

Four days into workouts, Splash Coach George Fernandez's confidence was already obvious. "Our practices are so intense," he said then, "I would put our team on the field right now against anybody and we would literally kick the . . . out of them." Four weeks later, the question is whether Fernandez's team can do the same when it counts. The Splash opens its second Continental Indoor Soccer League season Saturday in San Diego against the Sockers, and opens at home at 7:05 p.m.

Ventura and Moorpark colleges have the top two teams in the Western State Conference Northern Division, and that is the long and the short of it, or perhaps the tall and the short of it. Ventura's strength is its front line, led by 6-foot-6 Lester Neal, and Moorpark's leader is 5-7 Sam Crawford, the point guard in perhaps the best backcourt tandem in the state.

From the first day Jack Flaherty walked on the Harvard-Westlake High campus as a freshman two years ago, he was projected to be a baseball standout. He had the size, the work ethic and the cool, calm demeanor that signified star quality in his future. It all came together during his junior season. As a hitter, he batted .360 with two home runs and 13 stolen bases in 15 attempts. As a pitcher, he had a 13-0 record with an 0.63 earned-run average. He walked only 10 batters in 89 innings and struck out 112. In the Southern Section Division 1 championship game at Dodger Stadium, Flaherty drove in the game's only run and threw a shutout against Huntington Beach Marina.

After the 2007 high school baseball season, Matt LaCour made a surprising job change. He gave up one of the best coaching positions in the City Section at Woodland Hills El Camino Real to become coach at Studio City Harvard-Westlake, which was known more for its success in basketball, soccer, golf, water polo and tennis. It took six years, but LaCour put the Wolverines' baseball program on the map this season. Harvard-Westlake won the Southern Section Division 1 championship and earned a national championship plaque from Baseball America.

As a freshman and sophomore, Jack Flaherty couldn't win a playoff game on the mound for Studio City Harvard-Westlake. Now he doesn't lose games period. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound right-hander has become a true ace in his junior year, and he was at his best Friday night in the Southern Section Division 1 championship game at Dodger Stadium. Flaherty (13-0, 0.63 earned-run average) struck out eight, walked one and finished with a six-hitter in Harvard-Westlake's 1-0 victory over Huntington Beach Marina.

In five days, Dominic Smith leaves for New York to experience the excitement of baseball's amateur draft, in which he is likely to be a first-round choice. But on Friday afternoon, he and his Gardena Serra teammates flashed big smiles and screamed like children at an amusement park after an 8-1 victory over Manhattan Beach Mira Costa in the Southern Section Division 3 championship game at Dodger Stadium. "It's sweet," said Smith, a left-hander who struck out nine in 61/3 innings, walked three times (two were intentional)

Max Willingham was delirious with joy. The 17-year-old Huntington Beach Marina second baseman delivered a two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning Tuesday to earn himself and his best friends on the Vikings' baseball team a trip to Dodger Stadium. It was a two-strike, two-out single against Loyola's Nathan Hadley to drive in the tying and winning runs in a 6-5 victory over the Cubs in a Southern Section Division 1 semifinal game at Blair Field in Long Beach. "It was kind of nerve racking, but I tried to stay calm and hit the ball up the middle, and I got it done," Willingham said.

Players in the Southern Section Division 1 baseball playoffs can dream about celebrating a championship at Dodger Stadium, but giving legitimacy to the dream only occurs after a team proves it can win with its No. 2 pitcher. That's why what transpired Tuesday afternoon in Placentia could be a defining moment for No. 3-seeded Studio City Harvard-Westlake. Coach Matt LaCour hadn't won a playoff game with his No. 2 pitcher since he took over the program six years ago. He decided it was time to put Conor Cuse in the spotlight.

Khalfani Muhammad of Sherman Oaks Notre Dame has never faced a camera he didn't like or taken on an opponent he didn't want to beat. That made Saturday's Southern Section track and field championships the ideal environment for Muhammad to put on a show. Facing competition from some rising young sprinters, Muhammad made it clear he's not ready to relinquish his title as fastest teenager in California. He ran a wind-aided personal best 10.33 seconds to capture the Division 3 100 meters.
