Local report: 'Gades rally for 7-5 baseball win over AV

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

Junior Felix hit a two-run single in the sixth inning and Erik Williams hit a two-run double in the seventh inning Thursday to lead the Bakersfield College baseball team to a 7-5 Western State Confeernce-South victory over host Antelope Valley.

An RBI single by BC's Cole Hallum tied the game 3-3 in the sixth before Felix ripped his two-run single, scoring Hallum and Eddie Torres.

The next inning, Torres and Rolando Martinez scored on Williams' double.

Martinez led BC with three hits and three runs scored. Torres and Williams added two apiece for the Renegades (7-10, 3-2 WSC), who played error-free ball.

Winning pitcher Jared Solf (1-3) allowed three earned runs in eight innings. He struck out three, allowed eight hits and did not walk a batter.

Konner Arnold led AV (4-10, 0-5) with four hits.

Liberty grad Lafranchise in diving regionals

For the second straight season, UC Davis sophomore and Liberty High graduate Lucy Lafranchise will represent the Aggies in all three events at the 2014 NCAA Zone E Diving Regionals hosted by the Air Force Academy from March 14-16 at the Cadet Natatorium in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The top eight divers from the regional qualify for the NCAA Championships.

Lafranchise holds the highest score by an Aggie on the 1-meter board this year (271.27), which stands as the second-highest score in the event in school history.

She holds four of the top 10 scores on the low board by a UC Davis diver this season, including a ninth-place finish at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships with a score of 250.90 to win the consolation finals.

Her season high on the 3-meter was a 258.60. She finished 10th in the event at the MPSF championships (244.55).

She scored a season-best 176.55 on the platform at the conference championships.

Lafranchise is looking to become the third member of the swimming and diving team to qualify for the NCAA Championships, joining teammates Liliana Alvarez (100 breaststroke) and Hilvy Cheung (100 and 200 fly). The NCAA event will be March 20-22 at the University of Minnesota Aquatics Center.

College basketball

Former Liberty High standout Sam Marcus had three points, four assists, two rebounds and a steal to help Cal State Stanislaus to an upset victory over second-seeded Seattle Pacific, 80-72 in overtime, in the first round of the NCAA Division II men's basketball tournament at Coussoulis Arena in San Bernardino.

Marcus was named MVP of the CCAA tournament last week for the 7th-seeded Warriors (22-8), who advance to play No. 3 seed Cal Poly Pomona tonight at 5.
