TUJUNGA — Village Christian High School believes it’s never out of a baseball game.
It showed why Tuesday.
Cameron Wetherby’s RBI single scored Josh Argarin and the host Crusaders rallied for three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to score a 4-3 victory over Whittier Christian in an Olympic League game at Tujunga Little League Fields.
Ryan Whisenant also had a two-run double for Village Christian, which improved to 6-5 overall and 2-0 in league play. Trevor McGee had two hits and a RBI for the Heralds, who slipped 7-4 and 1-1.
Village Christian’s Cameron Wetherby: “I just tried to stay within myself and square up and hit the ball hard. We’re trying to get a win out here. When I saw the hit I was happy. It says a lot about what we do. This isn’t the first time we’ve been behind. We always compete the whole game and never give up.”
Whittier Christian’s Trevor McGee: “We definitely can beat them. They found some holes. We just have to respond back somehow.”

LONG BEACH >> The question posed to La Mirada head coach Bryce Jones was in all likelihood a question he was happy to answer: is La Mirada a basketball school now?
“La Mirada is an athletic school,” said Jones with a smile.
It was an inevitable question to pose after Jones and La Mirada made program history Saturday afternoon at the Walter Pyramid. The Matadores claimed the CIF State Division II Regional championship with a stellar defensive performance in 49-40 win over No. 4 seed Lawndale, led by a double-double from Vittorio Reynoso-Avila with 14 points and 13 rebounds.
“This is a great feeling. A year of firsts for us. Winning 30 games, getting this far,” said Jones. “Just doing things that haven’t been done yet at this school is really exciting and it’s a credit to these guys next to me and the guys in the locker room.”
