Guardado came up big once again for the Nobles by tossing a gem in his team’s 4-1 win over La Serna in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 4 playoffs. The Arizona-bound pitcher struck out nine and gave up four hits. Over his final four innings, Guardado gave up just one hit and scored a run.

Acosta came through in the clutch for Mira Costa in a 7-3 win over San Dimas on Friday in a CIF Southern Section Division 2 first-round game. Acosta hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning to break a 2-2 tie and lead Mira Costa into the second round, where it will play at Ayala on Tuesday.

Johnson was a double-winner in the throws at Saturday’s CIF-Southern Section Track and Field Finals at Cerritos College. He took the individual championships in both the shot put (59 feet, 11.5 inches) and discus (181-11) and advanced to Friday’s CIF-SS Masters meet.

Playing No. 1 singles, Comadena went 5-1 last week in the CIF Southern Section Division 2 semifinals and final, including a sweep against Yorba Linda in the championship match as the Terriers won the CIF-SS title.

Los Osos

Kams helped the Grizzlies to their first CIF Southern Section title as Los Osos defeated Maranatha 11-7 for the Division 4 title on Friday at The Claremont Club.
