L.A. Harbor College football Coach Chris Ferragamo says a victory in Saturday's 7:30 p.m. game against visiting Taft College is not farfetched. Ferragamo is not concerned with the fact that his team is unranked and Taft is ranked first in the state. "We expected to win last week against El Camino," Ferragamo said. "I think we just made too many mental mistakes." The Seahawks will use the pass against Taft as they did against highly-ranked El Camino.

One coach was cautiously optimistic, the other seemed depressed, burdened by circumstances out of his control. That's the pervasive atmosphere of the men's track and field programs at UCLA and USC. Bob Larsen's Bruins are on the upbeat side. The UCLA coach has eight athletes returning who scored in last year's NCAA meet and most likely has the best dual meet team in the country. Moreover, the team is bolstered by some blue-chip athletes, who were redshirted last year.

College of the Canyons is starting to resemble the team that won the community college state championship last year. The pitching and the hitting seem to have come together and the Cougars have a two-game winning streak to show for it. Unfortunately, Canyons has a nine-day break until its next game, its Western State League opener. "I'm looking forward to our league opener," Canyons Coach Len Mohney said. "I'll just have to keep the guys bouncing around for nine days."
