Southern California Christian Must Forfeit Eight Victories

Southern California Christian's baseball team will forfeit eight victories because high school officials discovered it had been using an ineligible player, Coach Bert Esposito said Thursday.

The Flames, the third-ranked team in Division VI, had their record changed to 5-12-1 from 13-4-1. They beat La Verne Lutheran, 2-1, Thursday to improve to 6-12-1, 2-5 in the Arrowhead League.

"We hope the section will allow us to compete in the playoffs as a wild-card team now," Esposito said.


After three seasons, Tony McCabe has resigned as Fullerton boys' basketball coach, he said.

The Indians were 30-22 under McCabe, who plans to return to Cal State Fullerton to complete his master's degree in physical education.

"I'm taking a year off, just to step back," said McCabe, who also coached cross-country last season. "I've been coaching for 14 years, maybe I was a little burned out."
