CSUN UPDATE: MATADOR APPEALS TO NCAA.

Byline: Chris Branam

Ivan Hernandez, a former All-L.A. City Section pitcher at Sylmar High and a freshman at Cal State Northridge, has filed an appeal with the NCAA, hoping it will grant him eligibility so he can play for the Matadors this season.

``We're waiting on the NCAA to give us a final determination,'' CSUN coach Mike Batesole said. ``If (the NCAA) makes a decision . . . he'll become eligible.''

Hernandez was 22-9 in three seasons at Sylmar and one of Northridge's top recruits.

Batesole said Hernandez is appealing one of the strangest academic situations the coach has encountered. Hernandez had an NCAA-qualifying high school GPA and his SAT score was above the minimum.

But the NCAA uses a sliding scale involving the GPA and SAT to determine academic eligibility, and Batesole said Hernandez is a few percentage points short in his GPA. Hernandez took 11 units this fall and retook the SAT.

``(Hernandez) did everything right,'' Batesole said.
