ROUNDUP : Another 10-Goal Day for Block

Westlake High senior David Block matched a school record he set last week, scoring 10 goals in a water polo game, to lead the Warriors to a 20-11 nonleague victory Wednesday over Calabasas.

Block, who played for the United States 17-and-under All-Star team this summer in Greece, scored 10 goals against Oxnard on Friday in the Buena tournament. He has 41 goals in seven games this season.

"This summer has really paid off for him," Coach Mike Power said. "He knows what he wants. He wants to play in the (2000) Olympic Games in Sydney and he knows what he has to do to get there."

Block scored three of the first four goals for Westlake (5-2).


Nordhoff, 17; Moorpark, 51; Santa Paula, 58; Calabasas, 104; Santa Clara, 133--Will Bernaldo, Omar Vega and Mason Moore placed 1-2-3 to pace Nordhoff to victory in the first of this season's three Frontier League meets.

Each meet will count toward one-third of the overall league title with the league finals counting as a tiebreaker if needed.

Bernaldo timed 16:28 over the three-mile course at Steckel Park with Vega and Moore clocking 16:29. The Rangers' other scoring runners were Victor Ochoa (fifth in 16:48) and Javier Ramirez (sixth in 16:49).

Ramirez, third in last year's State Division III championships, was conserving his energy for Saturday's Stanford Invitational.

Nordhoff, defending State Division III champion, is undefeated.


Nordhoff, 19; Moorpark, 39; Calabasas, 74; Santa Paula and Santa Clara, no score--Elaine Canchola, Terrah Chapin and Gina Tallakson took first, second and third as Nordhoff placed five runners among the first seven finishers in the first Frontier League meet of the season.

Canchola timed 19:56 over the three-mile course at Steckel Park, followed by Chapin (20:40) and Tallakson (20:58).


Montclair Prep d. Oakwood, 15-13, 15-4, 15-7--Karyn Dousette had 15 kills and nine aces and Vanessa Richlin had 38 assists to lead the Mounties (1-2) in a nonleague match at Oakwood.


Cal Lutheran 8, Caltech 0--Thomas Johnsen scored three goals and Jan Hammervold and Grady Brahy each scored two as the Kingsmen rolled over Caltech in an SCIAC match at Cal Lutheran.

Johnsen scored once in the first half to give the Kingsmen (2-7, 2-0) a 2-0 halftime lead. He added a pair of goals early in the second half, each on assists from Brian Collins.


CS Northridge d. CS Bakersfield, 15-13, 12-15, 15-12, 10-15, 15-13--Missy Clements had 27 kills and Aimee Stone added 25 kills to lead the Matadors (8-6) past the top-ranked Division II team in the country at Bakersfield.

It was the second consecutive five-game match for Northridge, which lost to the University of San Diego on Friday night.
