There was plenty of volleyball drama at Loyola High on Wednesday night, where No. 3 Corona del Mar took No. 2 Loyola to five sets.

The Cubs finally prevailed, 25-15, 23-25, 25-23, 22-25, 15-10.

It was a rematch of last year's Division 1 championship match.

Chatsworth has opened a three-game lead in the West Valley League, but the most competitive baseball race is for second place, where El Camino Real, Birmingham and Cleveland are all tied with 4-3 records.

El Camino Real picked up a critical 3-2 victory over Cleveland on Wednesday. The Conquistadores broke a 2-2 deadlock in the top of the seventh when Joseph Avrahamy put down a successful squeeze bunt.

Sophomore Gabe Achucarro struck out eight in Chatsworth's 3-2 win over Granada Hills. Gabriel Gonzalez had a home run.

As if the Narbonne-Carson football rivalry needed any more attention, someone has put up a giant billboard on Carson Street several miles from Carson High touting the Gauchos.

It reads, "Narbonne High School. 2014-2015-2016 City Champs. 2015 California State Champs." And there's a photo of Coach Manuel Douglas.

When reached Wednesday about the billboard, Douglas expressed surprise and said he had "no idea" about it.

Hunter Greene won't be pitching the rest of the regular season, Sherman Oaks Notre Dame Coach Tom Dill said Wednesday.

Dill said a decision will be made later whether Greene throws in the playoffs but he remains undecided. Dill said he told the team it won't be relying on Greene to pitch.

Greene told Baseball America on Tuesday that he was done pitching for the rest of the season.

Defending Southern Section Division I and state champion St. John Bosco began spring football practice on Tuesday. Returning quarterback Re-Al Mitchell looked as quick as ever. But he also has an improved throwing motion that should help his passing accuracy.

"High release," offensive coordinator Chad Johnson kept saying to Mitchell.

Mitchell worked on his release with private coach Steve Calhoun, and it appears to have produced results. He was throwing strong, accurate spirals.

St. John Bosco hasn't played in a baseball playoff game since the 2011 season. The drought is about to end. The Braves are in first place in the Trinity League with an 18-4 overall record and 6-1 league mark.

Their latest triumph came on Tuesday, when they hit three home runs in a 16-0 win over Santa Margarita. Charlie Nasuti, who just committed to Purdue, hit a grand slam and had six RBI. Sebastian Orduno and Jack Collette each had three hits. John Beller threw five shutout innings.

It's taken three years for Don Barbara to turn around the Braves, and they are ranked No. 1 in Southern Section Division 2.
