GLENDALE — The following are updates on area athletes at the collegiate level.

Luke Collis (St. Francis High, 2007) Occidental College junior quarterback: It was another banner day for the former Golden Knights standout.

Collis led the Tigers to a 30-0 romp over host La Verne on Saturday in a Southern California Interscholastic Athletic Conference win.


For the second time this season, Collis surpassed the 300-yard mark, completing 24 of 32 passes for 340 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Collis connected with seven different receivers and threw scoring passes of 53, 23, 30 and 10 yards in three quarters of play.

With the win, Occidental improved to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the SCIAC, while sending La Verne to its 15th straight loss. Oxy is currently tied with Cal Lutheran for first place in conference.

Collis, a Nevada transfer who missed one game this year due to injury, has passed for 851 yards and 10 touchdowns, while throwing just two interceptions and completing 64 of 106 passes in three games this season.

Next up for Collis and the Tigers is a home game against Pomona-Pitzer on Saturday.

Sarah Salvo (Glendale resident) New Mexico women's golf junior: A former Mission League standout, Salvo turned in the finest performance of her NCAA career on Tuesday at the Windy City Collegiate in Illinois.

The New Mexico women's golf team finished in eighth place in the three-day tournament with a 23-over 307 in the final round to finish with a 921 three-day total bolstered by Salvo's 15th-place individual effort.

Salvo began the tournament with her best round — a two-over 73 — and concluded with a 74 for a three-day 225 to put her in a tie for 15th, the highest of her three-year Lobos career.

Earlier in the year at the Dick McGuire Invitational, Salvo shot a three-day, 10-over-par 229 to tie for 39th place. In New Mexico's first tournament of the season in September, Salvo tied for 34th with a three-day 224 at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic.

Next up for New Mexico is the Las Vegas Collegiate Classic from Oct. 25-27.

Ayana Sumiyasu (Flintridge Prep, 2007) Yale women's soccer senior: After a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to archrival Harvard on Oct. 2 in which Sumiyasu tallied six saves, the former Flintridge Prep standout and the Bulldogs have responded with two straight wins.
