For the second year in a row Claremont-Mudd-Scripps squared off with the No. 2 team in the first round of the NCAA Division 3 Men’s Basketball Tournament only to face the No. 1 team in the second round.
In the first round last Friday in Walla Walla Washington, the Stags and Whitworth Pirates traded the lead 16 times in the contest with neither team holding more than a seven-point advantage. But when the dust settled after 40 minutes it was the Stags who earned the hard-fought 83-82 victory, according to a news release from CMS athletics.

It’s not over until it’s over—unfortunately, now it’s over. The Claremont girls basketball team’s unlikely and unprecedented run through the CIF Division 3 Southern Section Championship tournament ended Wednesday night with a disappointing 57-35 loss to Saugus at home.
But what a run it was, and in the process the Wolfpack left two highly-ranked teams wondering what happened.

Claremont High School girls basketball has pulled off two big upsets to advance to the quarterfinal round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 Championships. The Pack will now face Saugus on Wednesday at a yet to be determined location. Girls Water polo has won two games as well and now is in the semifinals against Wilson on Wednesday.
Call it an air of inevitability, or maybe just pure inertia, but Claremont High School boys basketball was not going to be denied a victory last Thursday when they hosted first-place Diamond Bar for the final game of the regular season.
Claremont never trailed on their way to a lopsided 78-60 victory in front of a jubilant hometown crowd.
The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men’s track and field team has been barred from competing in three meets after an alleged naked hazing incident two weeks ago.
In a release circulated on Monday, CMS Director of Athletics Terry Tumey also noted that some members of the women’s team would be barred from competing in one meet this year.
Mountain biking started about 40 years ago when a ragtag group in Marin County started bombing down Mount Tamalpais’ dirt roads on converted beach cruisers they called klunkers.
Since then it has become a multi-million-dollar sport with sophisticated full-suspension bicycles, an international race scene and, since 1996, been included in the summer Olympics.
As a result, it is little surprise that middle and high school athletes across Southern California wanted to get in on the action, forming a league that has grown to 64 teams and a five-race series. COURIER photo/Steven Felechundneff

Claremont High School boys basketball is having one of the best seasons in recent history and, if they keep winning, will add a Palomares League title banner to the CHS gym.
Claremont and Diamond Bar currently have the same league record, 5-2. However, the Brahmas narrowly won the first time the teams met, so the Pack is relegated to second place.
The stars aligned perfectly for Claremont High School girls soccer Thursday night in two unexpected results. First and most important, the Wolfpack stunned top ranked, and undefeated, South Hills with a 4-0 drubbing at home.
