Easton Babb, Foothill: Babb, who plays the forward, scored four goals in an 18-13 win over Sierra Canyon, five goals in a 12-9 win over Yorba Linda and two goals in a 9-7 win over Mater Dei. He has 46 goals in 14 games. Babb has a toe injury which affected his speed but not his scoring abilities. “It’s a grinder,” Foothill coach Jon Fox said. “He’s a hard worker and he wants to be there for his team.” Foothill is the No. 3 seed in the CIF South Section Division 1 playoffs.

Riley Feigenbaum, Royal: Feigenbaum threw a clean goal in the Highlanders’ 12-0 win at Oak Park. He pitched 92 and struck out 11 batters in the team’s 18th win of the season. Feigenbaum is 6-2 in 10 starts this season with a 1.98 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 53 innings.

Jeremiah Nyarko, Saint-Jean Bosco: The 6-foot-9 forward scored 21 points and had 13 rebounds to help the Braves rival Mater Dei in his first loss of the season, 69-56. Mater Dei was shorthanded, but had his best 6-10 player Harrison Hornery, who had 11 rebounds. Two days earlier, Nyarko had scored 15 points in a 69-67 victory over Orange Lutheran.

Anthony Garcia, Norte Vista: Garcia scored all four goals in leading the Braves to a 4-2 victory over West Torrance in the Division 3 semifinals of the CIF South Section. Norte Vista has qualified for the section finals for the first time in the history of the program and will host the Salesian in the championship match on Saturday evening. Garcia scored twice in the first 16 minutes of the game to put Norte Vista ahead and added two more goals in the second half to propel the Braves to victory.

Daniel De La Torre, Baldwin Park: The goalkeeper saved a penalty in the second sudden death overtime period to allow the Braves to finally defeat Rancho Mirage on penalties. He did not give up a goal on penalties. And in the semifinals, De La Torre shutout in a 2-0 win over Mountain View. He made a fingertip save on a penalty in the middle of the second half. Baldwin Park will play for the school’s third CIF-SS title on Saturday at home against Citrus Hill at 5 p.m.

CJ Hardy, El Segundo: Hardy helped the Eagles put the finishing touches on an undefeated Pioneer League title. The senior goalie had 19 points and four rebounds in a 43-35 win over West, 25 points and seven rebounds in a 57-43 win over South and 25 points in a 73-42 win over Lawndale.
