Thousand Oaks to Play Saturday

The Southern Section Division III football playoff game between Thousand Oaks High (7-2-1) and Lompoc (6-4) has been moved to Saturday night at 7:30 because of a scheduling conflict.

Lompoc shares its Huyck Stadium at Lompoc High with Cabrillo, which has a home playoff game against Culver City on Friday night. It was Cabrillo's turn to have priority.

USC-bound: Trevor Julian, a 6-foot-5 swing hitter for the Harvard-Westlake High volleyball team, has committed to USC.

Julian is a two-time All-Mission League selection.

Signed, sealed: Forward Sanethia Thomas of Quartz Hill High has signed a letter of intent with Texas El Paso.

She averaged 14 points and eight rebounds last season.

Letter-perfect: Myesha Saleem, a basketball player at Monrovia High, signed a letter of intent with Cal State Northridge.

Saleem is a 6-footer who can play guard or forward.

Follow the leader: Shortstop Brooke Rutschman of Camarillo High committed to Oregon State.

Rutschman, an All-Southern Section Division I selection, will follow former Camarillo coach Nichole Victoria, who took an assistant coaching position with the Beavers in August.

Rutschman, the Marmonte League's most valuable player last season, batted .500 in league.

Catching on: Jamie Moore, a softball catcher from Alemany High and Palm Beach Community College, has committed to Cal State Northridge.

Moore was a junior college All-American last year.

Moving on: Jason Hartman, formerly of Thousand Oaks High, has left the University of Washington basketball team and will transfer to another school at the end of the academic quarter.

In a statement released by the school, Hartman said his decision was based on personal reasons and basketball. He was expected to back up junior Mark Sanford.

"I was just frustrated how it was going for me," he said.

Suzanne Hartman said her son is considering Pepperdine, Kansas State, UC Santa Barbara and Santa Clara.

Hartman, a 6-6 junior, averaged 7.1 points for the Huskies (16-12) last season, and shot 41% from three-point range.

Signing on: Laurie Osuna, captain of the swim team at Canyon High in Anaheim, signed a letter with Northridge.

Osuna's best times are 24.90 seconds in the 50 freestyle and 54.90 in the 100 freestyle.

Coaches on the field: Michael Preis and Kris Swanson, forwards on the Northridge men's soccer team, have been hired as co-coaches of the Alemany High girls' team.

Preis, 18, and Swanson, 22, have coached in various youth soccer organizations. The Indians have had four coaching changes in seven months.

Gone for good: Kennedy High linebacker Byron Williams, suspended from school twice this season, will not return to the football team, Coach Bob Francola said.

Williams missed two games earlier this season and a third against San Fernando last week.
