In light of the trouble UCLA has experienced on its basketball trip to China, with three players being questioned and limited to their hotel because of shoplifting allegations, Chaminade is making special preparations for its own basketball trip to China next month for a tournament in Beijing.

Coach Bryan Cantwell happened to be having a meeting with his players about what they would be able to do and not do in China when news broke earlier this week about UCLA's problems.

Unlike the college players, Chaminade players must be with one of the six adults on the trip wherever they go.

Any fan who goes to watch E.J. Gable of Arleta play football will be inspired by what they see. He's a fearless 5-foot-5 senior running back who slips, slides and runs away from stunned defenders.

It happened again and again Thursday afternoon in a City Section Division I playoff opener against Jefferson at Arleta. It was No. 9 vs. No. 8, and the game was as close as expected.

Gable rushed for 228 yards and scored four touchdowns in Arleta's 35-27 victory. His four-yard touchdown run with 5:26 left, combined with his two-point conversion run, gave Arleta a 28-27 lead. Then he broke loose on a 20-yard touchdown run with 2:46 left.

Sophomore Angelina Kim of Fairfax became the first girls' golfer in City Section history to win the CIF/SCGA So Cal Regional Golf Championship on Thursday at Canyon Crest Country Club.

She shot a 4-under 69 to tie Isabel Sy of Troy, then won in a playoff.

It's a remarkable achievement, considering last season she couldn't play because Fairfax didn't have a girls' golf team.

Archer School in Brentwood could have a historic night Friday when it bids for its first Southern Section sports title, playing against Foothill Technology in the Division 7 girls' volleyball final at 4:30 p.m. at Cerritos College.

Archer has made it to the final despite having no gym and making constant trips via bus to Culver City to work out.

In the semifinals, Archer overcame a 2-1 deficit in sets to knock off Heritage Christian, winning the final two in 25-14 and 15-11.
