The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level. John Salas (Crescenta Valley High, 2009) Cal State Northridge baseball junior: Salas enjoyed a breakout season for the Matadors, emerging from the bullpen to become a formidable starter in the second half of the season. Arguably his best start came on May 12 in a 7-1 win over UC Santa Barbara, as he went the full nine innings, allowing just five hits and one run, while striking out six and walking one. He struggled a bit in his final two starts of the season, going five innings and allowing four runs in a loss to Cal Poly on May 19, before getting a no-decision in a season-ending loss to Cal State Fullerton on May 25 in which he allowed three runs over 3 2/3 innings.
