Sports results, schedule and standings for the week of April 22, 2011.
A student-led campaign to save Ben Hines Field began this week and has already met strong opposition from administration.
The men’s and women’s track teams took part in the 25th annual Pomona-Pitzer Invitational on Saturday where the men’s 4×400 team took first place, women’s 4×100 finished in fifth, and men’s 4×100 took third.
The Leopards split a doubleheader with Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Saturday to ensure the top spot in the conference for at least one more week.
La Verne struggled to find its momentum with many lost opportunities from shots on goal to counter attacks on both ends as it fell short to Cal Lutheran Wednesday at Las Flores Park, 11-5.
They are ranked in the top 15 nationally in two polls and are trying to win their fifth Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title in a row, yet they do not get recognized half as much as the other less successful teams on campus do.
La Verne suffered a pair of losses over the weekend against Redlands and Whittier. The Bulldogs dominated the Leopards at the Claremont Club on Friday, 9-0, and the Poets continued dominance on Saturday, winning 7-2.
It was a short day on Friday, as the Leopards took on the 0-18 Caltech Beavers at Ben Hines Field, dominating 14-1 in a seven inning game.
A misdirected field block into the goal with 43 seconds remaining sunk the hearts of La Verne faithful as the women’s water polo team fell to Pomona-Pitzer, 13-12, Wednesday at Las Flores Park.
