GLENDALE — Steve Rousey sensed uncertainty when he went in for his end-of-the-season evaluation. Having coached the Cal State University Northridge baseball team to its first winning season since he took over the program in 2002, Rousey's uncertainty was warranted, as the university elected to end the La Crescenta resident's tenure as Matadors coach, choosing not to renew his contract after its expiration this season. "I sensed something was up when I walked into the meeting Wednesday," Rousey said Thursday.

NORTHRIDGE ? Scoring touchdowns and making a game-saving tackle will have to come some other time for Corbet Pollack. The 13-year-old Corbett could have gone on to play football with many of his former teammates who left the California Tribe, a Burbank-based travel baseball team, to play football in June. Pollack chose to be in the minority and spend the remainder of the summer learning how to hit, throw and catch a baseball. Pollack took his decision a step further, choosing to attend the Northridge Baseball Camp at Cal State Northridge.

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.

Charles Rich He's left USC with no regrets and quietly departed for Cal State Northridge. Don't suggest to Mark McCauley that it's a step down the ladder. He'll take the opposite approach and climb with little fanfare. McCauley, a former star infielder for the Crescenta Valley High baseball team that captured the CIF Southern Section Division I championship in 1998, transferred to CSUN in June with a pledge to possibly obtain a full-time position on the school's squad.
