Jordyn Vanhook’s three home runs power El Camino Real softball to 16th City title

CARSON >> El Camino Real outfielder Jordyn Vanhook got comfortable in the batter’s box, and for the first time in the postseason, got the opportunity to show what makes her one of the most feared hitters in the country. After getting walked seven times in the first two games of the playoffs, Vanhook showed Saturday afternoon what happens when teams dare pitch to her. El Camino Real’s Jordan Vanhook celebrates as she heads to homeplate after hitting another homerun in the CIF Championship gam...

What to know about UCLA gymnastics in the NCAA championships

LOS ANGELES — The UCLA gymnastics team is two meets away from a second straight national championship. The Bruins barely mentioned that fact this week heading into the NCAA championships in Fort Worth, Texas. “The personality of our team is more about focusing on the little things and focusing on taking one event as a time or taking one skill at a time, even,” junior Gracie Kramer said. “Because we have that mentality, it’s more fun and it’s surprising when the numbers fall into place.” The Brui...

Hotline newsletter: USC’s Lynn Swann, UCLA’s coaching search create (more) bad optics for the Pac-12

With Cori Close in charge, UCLA women’s basketball is just getting started

ALBANY, N.Y. — Senior Kennedy Burke crumpled to the floor, grasping her left knee after securing an offensive rebound just after halftime. She immediately called for a trainer and a worried Coach Cori Close joined the duo on the court. At this point, the traveling violation called on Burke was perhaps the last thing on Close’s mind, as one of UCLA women’s basketball’s most important players was down. Burke was subbed out, and UConn’s lead grew from 5 to 9 in two minutes. The Bruins’ offense was ...

UCLA looks to upend UConn’s streak of dominance in women’s basketball

ALBANY, N.Y. — In late 1996, the UConn women’s basketball team visited UC Santa Barbara for a nonconference showdown. Geno Auriemma’s mighty Huskies dispatched the Gauchos 87-76 to hold on to their No. 1 ranking. On the sideline that day for UC Santa Barbara was a young assistant coach named Cori Close. Twenty-two years later, Close has taken UCLA women’s basketball to four consecutive Sweet 16s. However, she has never gotten the better of Auriemma, as the Huskies hold a 9-0 record against teams...

Why does Oregon State Senator Lew Frederick support a freeway expansion in his district?

(Image of Lew Frederick by K. Kendall used under CC by 2.0) The I-5 Rose Quarter project being planned by the Oregon Department of Transportation lies squarely in the district of Oregon State Senator Lew Frederick. With an official biography that says his legislative focus is on, “justice in public safety, education, and ‘quality of life’ issues,” some readers were surprised to find out he supports a project that will significantly widen Interstate 5 to accommodate more auto traffic in Portland...

Bill Walton takes bathroom break before Arizona State-Oregon OT

Arizona State and Oregon went into overtime in Friday night's Pac-12 men's basketball tournament semifinal game, but ESPN college basketball analyst Bill Walton couldn't wait that long to take a bathroom break.Since the break between the end of regulation and the start of overtime is not that long, ESPN play-by-play man Dave Pasch was left by himself for a few seconds at the overtime tip-off. Pasch is all too familar with Walton's quirky behavior, so he couldn't help making light of the ill-tim...

ODOT’s marketing of I-5 Rose Quarter project sows distrust

ODOT says this should not be considered a large-scale expansion of the freeway. (Graphic: ODOT I-5 Rose Quarter Environmental Assessment) As you can see in the cross-sections above, the Oregon Department of Transportation’s I-5 Rose Quarter project would significantly widen Interstate 5 through Portland’s central city. And, if the project achieves ODOT’s goals for fewer crashes and faster speeds, it would also increase the number of people who drive through the corridor. These seem like obviou...

How UCLA men’s basketball can earn a Pac-12 tournament bye

It’s been a month since the 22-point lead that got away and Kris Wilkes hasn’t forgotten. “We should have won,” sophomore Kris Wilkes said Tuesday of UCLA’s epic collapse against Utah on Feb. 9. “But it’ll be a good challenge and I think we’ll be up to it.” The home loss proves especially costly now as the Utes (16-13, 10-7 Pac-12) are one game ahead of the Bruins (16-14, 9-8 Pac-12) in the crowded Pac-12 standings. As the teams meet again in the regular-season finale Saturday in Salt Lake City,...
