Senior throws shutout in 4-0 win over Cleveland

Bryan Golnick of El Camino Real was in such a hurry pitching on Wednesday at USC’s Dedeaux Field that he looked as if he needed to make a graduation ceremony. Coach Josh Lienhard finally had to come to the mound in the bottom of the seventh inning of the City Section Open Division semifinal with an 0-and-2 count to calm him down.

Golnick got a game-ending strikeout to culminate a 4-0 victory over Cleveland that sends the Conquistadores into Saturday’s 1 p.m. championship game at Dodger Stadium against Birmingham, a 3-2 winner over Chatsworth.

Unfortunately, Golnick, a senior, won’t be able to pitch. He threw 105 pitches, leaving him ineligible to be on the mound at Dodger Stadium. He didn’t seem too upset.

Rick Weber announced on Tuesday he is stepping down after seven years as baseball coach at Sierra Canyon.

Weber, in a text message, said it’s time “for me to make a change” and pursue other opportunities.

Sierra Canyon had a 21-game win streak this season and competed in Division 2, its highest level yet after being a small schools team for many years. He had an overall record of 165-43 and went from Division 6 to Division 2 during his stint.

Shane Cox says 2018 will be his final season as football coach at Fairfax.

He has been at the school for 20 years. His son will be graduating in 2019. He also recently took over as athletic director. He says he plans to look for another coaching job in the future.

His final team should be a good one, with 13 returning starters, including quarterback Scott Harris.
