Depth and talent are two keys to winning conference swimming championships.

Alex Mendoza helped give Claremont Mudd Scripps both as the Stags captured their seventh straight Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference crown.

The Rodriguez High graduate finished second in the 1,650-yard freestyle (15 minutes, 54.19 seconds) and 500 free (4:35.46) and fifth in the 400 individual medley (4:06.25) at the SCIAC Championships.

The team race was no contest as CMS amassed 1,229 points, nearly double the total of runner-up Pomona-Pitzer (706.5) and Redlands (622).

Women’s basketball

Renique Fitzpatrick (Armijo) helped Holy Names (10-14, 6-12 PacWest) snap an eight-game losing streak by pouring in 20 points, grabbing 16 rebounds and blocking two shots in a 69-63 win over Chaminade. Earlier, she had another double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out in a 70-61 loss to Hawaii-Hilo.

Amnesty Bradley (Fairfield) had six rebounds in the two games for the Hawks.

Khristina Hunter (Rodriguez) had a double-double for San Diego State (10-14, 7-7 MWC) in a losing cause, scoring 10 points and getting 13 boards to go with five assists in a  79-69 loss to Utah State. She then had four points, seven rebounds and two steals in a 53-48 downing of New Mexico.

In Dominican’s 86-65 defeat at the hands of Dixie State, Salonika Quewon-Owens (Armijo) netted 17 points and added five rebounds, three steals and a block for the Penguins (8-16, 8-10 PacWest).

Eastern Nazarene (9-16, 5-13 CCC) closed its season by topping Nichols 58-48 and Gordon 63-57. Ruby Leon (Fairfield, Solano) had nine points three assists and two steals in the former, 14 points, five rebounds and four assists in the latter.

Leon finished the season by leading the Lions in minutes (26.4 per game), points (11.9), steals (1.4)  and tying for the team lead in assists (2.4). Lucy Santos (Solano) averaged 8.3 minutes, 2.4 points and 3.0 rebounds per game.

Try as she might Jazmine Miller (Vanden) couldn’t keep Chico State (17-7, 13-7 CCAA) from dropping a 63-60 decision to Cal State East Bay. Miller had a team-high 15 points, five rebounds and two assists. She earlier had five points, five assists and three rebounds as the Wildcats bounced Cal State Monterey Bay 64-56.

Down 24-19 at halftime, UC Riverside (6-20, 2-11 Big West) outscored UC Santa Barbara 48-33 after the break to win 67-57. Tahvia Morrison (Vanden) had a rebound and a block for the Highlanders.

Waldorf (8-18, 6-8 MCAC) extended its winning streak to a season-best three games by slipping past Central Christian 83-72 and York 83-80. Destinee Sinegal-Smith (Fairfield, Solano) had 10 points, two rebounds and block in the first game, seven points and two assists in the second.

Our Lady of the Lake (23-3, 13-2 RRAC), coached by former Vacaville and Vacaville Christian coach Chris Minner, enjoyed three wins, cruising past Huston-Tillotson 87-61, Jarvis Christian 76-62 and Texas College 99-84.

Nebraska-Kearney (8-16, 4-13 MIAA), coached by former Solano assistant Kevin Chaney, fell twice, losing to Emporia State 82-68 and Fort Hays State 81-53.

Men’s basketball

Eastern Nazarene (19-5, 13-5 CCC) had its eight-game winning streak snapped with an 88-84 loss to Nichols despite 11 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and a block from Lequan Gomes (Fairfield, Solano). Gomes helped the Lions roar back by scoring a game-high 18 points and getting nine rebounds and a block in a 75-66 downing of Gordon.

Ronnie Baker (Rodriguez) poured in 20 points and had five rebounds and three assists, but it wasn’t enough to keep Alaska (16-9, 11-6 GNAC) from coughing up a five-point lead in the final 23 seconds in a 71-70 loss to Western Oregon. Baker helped the Nanooks bounce back with 10 points, five assists and three steals in a 66-46 mauling of Saint Martins. Rashaad Allen (Rodriguez) had five points, two rebounds and two assists in the two games.

Koree Cox (Rodriguez) played for Hawaii Pacific (13-11, 7-10 PacWest) in a 64-51 downing of Notre Dame de Namur.

In Maine-Fort Kent’s 81-71 loss to Fisher, James Givens (Fairfield, Solano) had a game-high 24 points and added three assists and two rebounds for the Bengals (7-21). He earlier had 12 points, six assists, three rebounds and two steals in a 97-65 thumping at the hands of Framingham State.

Juston Goodwin (Buckingham Charter, Solano) helped Dickinson State (8-19, 3-12 Frontier) close the season on a winning note by getting 15 points and six rebounds in an 86-81 win over Carroll. Earlier, he had six points, six rebounds and two assists in an 81-52 loss to Montana State-Northern.

Goodwin played in 26 games and finished the season averaging 4.4 points and 3.2 rebounds per game and contributed 11 steals and 10 assists. DeSean Atkins (Fairfield) saw action in 24 games with five starts and averaged 5 points and 1.3 rebounds and had 37 assists, 16 steals and four blocks.

Pacific Union (4-27, 3-9 Cal Pac) closed its campaign with a 70-56 loss to Cal Maritime with Anthony Gonzalez (Vacaville) contributing four points, two assists and two steals. Gonzalez played in all 31 games his freshman season with 14 starts, averaging 20.6 minutes, 3.7 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. He finished with 41 assists, 19 steals and six blocks.
