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.

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.

Charles Rich He's not bothered by the interim tag. Nor is he on pins and needles. With time spent recruiting and tending to scheduling and equipment budgeting issues, Steve Rousey doesn't plan to be concerned while operating within a specified timetable. Why should the La Crescenta resident worry about whether he might become the next head baseball coach at Cal State Northridge? He recently threw his name into the hat and now he must wait.

TOLUCA LAKE ? No matter the circumstances, he wasn?t going to squander a golden opportunity. About two weeks ago, Nick Delio was at his Valencia home when the phone rang. It was the Southern California Golf Assn., which invited Delio to participate in the 97th annual California Amateur Championship at Oakmont Country Club and Lakeside Golf Club. At first stunned by the query, the 18-year-old Delio eventually accepted the invitation. Then he made the most of his chance. The sixth-seeded Delio reached the apex of his career Saturday when he knocked off 20th-seeded Austin Roberts, 7 and 5, at Lakeside to win the championship.
