It was a battle of apex predators for the La Verne Leopards baseball team in their Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opener against the Chapman Panthers, who are ranked 20th nationally in Division III.
The La Verne baseball team won its 21st Southern California Intercollegite Athletic Conference title with a three-game sweep of Whittier last weekend.
The Leopards traveled to Whittier Friday to beat the Poets, 9-6. Then the two teams matched up for a doubleheader Saturday at Ben Hines Field, which La Verne swept, 10-4 and 7-6.
Sophomore pitcher Cody Norman and the Leopards’ offense carried La Verne to a 8-0 win against Pomona-Pitzer in game one of Saturday’s doubleheader at Ben Hines Field.
La Verne dominated Pomona-Pitzer over the weekend, sweeping the three-game series and taking sole possession of second place in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
Sophomore pitcher Cody Norman threw a complete game gem allowing three hits while striking out 14 in the Leopards’ win, 3-0, over Occidental in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday at Ben Hines Field.
After three years of fundraising, two years of house hunting and one false start, the University of La Verne Board of Trustees funded a $2.5 million Claremont home to be regarded as the new “University house.”
National CORE, a nonprofit affordable housing developer, is leading a permanent supportive housing project, 740 Foothill Community, in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County between the cities of San Dimas and La Verne. Both cities are opposed to the project.
