PREP EXTRA LOCAL; ATHLETES OF THE WEEK.



SARA Sara or Sarah, in the Bible, wife of Abraham and mother of Isaac. With Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah, she was one of the four Hebrew matriarchs. Her name was originally Sarai [Heb.,=princess].  LEIBOWITZ

Senior

Chaminade soccer

Leibowitz, a goalkeeper, concluded her high school career with a Southern Section championship Saturday, as the Eagles of West Hills defeated Bishop Montgomery of Torrance 2-1 in the Division IV title match.

The Eagles' defense featured three seniors this season and provided ample support for Leibowitz. Chaminade allowed just two goals in its five playoff matches, both on penalty kicks.

Even when opponents were able to penetrate the Eagles defense, Leibowitz displayed the mobility and strength to prevent goals. In the final seconds of Chaminade's semifinal victory over Corona del Mar Del Mar is the name of several places in the United States of America:
  • Del Mar, California
  • Del Mar, Texas
  • Del Mar High School, located in San Jose, California
  • Del Mar Racetrack, located in Del Mar, California
, Leibowitz prevented the game-tying goal by making a save while sitting on the grass.

``I've always told the girls that defense wins championships,'' coach Mike Evans said. ``With the type of offense we have, we are going to have a lot of chances to score goals, so it's really just a matter of playing strong defense.''

Chaminade won its fourth consecutive Southern Section title and finished 23-4-4.

Simi Valley Simi Valley (sē`mē, sĭm`ē), city (1990 pop. 100,217), Ventura co., SW Calif. in an oil, fruit, and farm region; laid out 1887, inc. 1969.  basketball

A 6-foot-9 center, Villepigue was a big factor in the Pioneers' run to the Southern Section Division I-A championship game.

He scored 23 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in last Tuesday's 77-58 semifinal win over Rancho Verde of Moreno Valley Moreno Valley (mərē`nō), city (1990 pop. 118,779), Riverside co., S Calif., inc. 1984. In 1990, Moreno Valley was California's fastest-growing city, with a population increase of more than 300% between 1980 and 1990, but major reductions . It was Villepigue's second consecutive double-double of the playoffs.

Villepigue, averaging 12 points and seven rebounds, led the Pioneers with 13 points in Saturday's 53-39 loss to Mater Dei at the Pond in Anaheim. With four starters graduating, Villepigue will be Simi Valley's marquee player next year.

``This year's been a good year for him. And I think it's going to be a springboard for him going into next year,'' Pioneers coach Christian Aurand said.

UP AND COMER

SAM HARRIS, Sylmar High

Harris, a 6-foot-1 sophomore, averaged 27 points a game, including three consecutive 30-point efforts. He also averaged five assists. His numbers were good enough for a promotion to varsity for the final three games of the regular season, plus the City playoffs.
