When Village Christian Schools Supt. Jeff Woodcock looks at the hills near his Sun Valley campus, he sees beyond the barren valleys and fuzzy peaks to an imaginary football stadium, an outdoor amphitheater, a parking lot and a new classroom building. They are dreams that Village Christian, by far the largest nondenominational Christian campus in the Valley, will be getting even bigger.

The Village Christian High girls' basketball team entered its Southern Section Division IV-A final Saturday against four-time defending champion Cerritos Valley Christian with visions of David defeating Goliath. But in this battle between teams called Crusaders, Goliath held ground as Valley Christian won its fifth consecutive title, 62-33, at the Pyramid. Village Christian (19-8) shot just 23% from the field and did not score a point until 7 minutes and 30 seconds into the game.

DIVISION III * NOTRE DAME (11-1) vs. MUIR (10-2) At Pasadena City College, 7:30 p.m. Notre Dame, which has won nine consecutive games, is trying to return to the Division III title game--which it won in 1994. Muir, playing in its first semifinal since 1992, hasn't reached the final since the Mustangs won back-to-back championships in 1985 and 1986. The Mustangs, champions of the Pacific League, have plenty of speed. Sultan McCullough has rushed for 1,854 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Any time Village Christian Coach Mike Plaisance sees kicker Matt Ryburn spraying field goal attempts all over the field during pregame warmups, he get a big smile. When he sees Ryburn miss a few attempts short, he feels relieved. Ryburn has won two games this season with last-second field goals, both on days when he had a horrible pregame warmup. "We can always tell when he's going to have a good game," Plaisance said.

Hoping to discourage illegal drag racing, Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton and Mayor James K. Hahn held a car-crushing demonstration Wednesday at a Sun Valley junkyard intended to send a strong message to violators: Race, and you risk arrest and the demolition of your vehicle.
