Division, 8-1 PLAYERS TO WATCH: Sophomore tailback Bobby Webster (5-foot-8, 185 pounds) rushed for 1,360 yards and 21 touchdowns last season and was a unanimous WSC Northern Division pick.

Sophomore fullback Rafik Thorossian (6-0, 232), Cicuto said, "has a chance to be as good if not better than Wes Bender," who is now at USC.

Running back Tony Williams scored on a one-yard run with 30 seconds remaining to give the formerly winless Ventura Pirates a come-from-behind upset, 46-45, over Santa Barbara City College on Saturday night. Host Santa Barbara (3-4, 2-4 in Western State Conference play) held a 45-31 lead with 4:45 remaining in the game when a snap sailed over the head of Vaquero punter George Rios and rolled 60 yards to the Santa Barbara one-yard line where it was recovered by Ventura's Mike Flores.

A. Southwest. Glendale tailback Bobby Webster rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns in 30 carries, and backs Wes Bender and Rafik Thorossian added 104 and 74 yards, respectively, in the Vaqueros' 21-12 victory.

It was Oxnard's first division victory since the 1996-97 season. "This was a big game for us in a lot of ways," Coach Ron McClurkin said.

Eight days before the Western State Conference track and field championships, Chrystall DeNaeyer of Moorpark College threw out her back teaching a child to roller skate. Rather than running away from the pain, the 25-year-old sophomore ran wild on Saturday, winning two individual events and anchoring both winning relay teams. Her performance helped the Raiders run away with the conference title at La Playa Stadium at Santa Barbara City College.

A Ventura College basketball player filed suit against the community college district Wednesday, claiming that he had no opportunity to defend himself when he was declared ineligible to play last season. Guard Sean Van Gundy and two other players who filed similar Ventura County Superior Court lawsuits claim that their reputations were ruined after the Western State Conference would not allow them to play during the 1997-98 season because they allegedly received meal subsidies the prior season.

The Ventura College men's basketball program remains alive--for now, at least--and its players are kicking. After an impassioned closed-door meeting Thursday in which more than a dozen players argued vehemently among themselves whether to play or sit out the season, administrators delayed a decision whether to suspend the program for one year.

Members of the embattled Ventura College men's basketball team, after making an emotional appeal Wednesday to Western State Conference officials, hinted they might leave the program rather than accept a two-year probation imposed earlier this month by the conference. "If we're on probation, I won't play," sophomore forward Adrian Coffey said. "It's as simple as that."
