Friday, July 22, 2005 The CATALINA ISLANDER Page 7 Women's Softball For game 8 of the season, SCI would be playing the double header, and they welcomed a new sign up by Lauren Calise. SCI started things off with Tracy Larsen's single, followed by Jessica Garcia's double. Then, Patti Engel got on base, bringing in Tracy and Jessica, scoring the first 2 runs. For SAM, the first 5 top batters, Margery Williams, Cindy Morris, Mary Amoroso, Vicki Rogers and Veronica Reyes all hit singles bringing in Margery and Cindy, the first inning tied at 2-2. In the second inning SAM's outfield was looking sharp by sit- tin' down SCI with the o1' 1,2,3 in a row. SAM went on to pound out 4 more runs, with Jessie Smith on base and Margery, Mary, Vicki and Veronica hitting singles, along with Cindy's dou- ble allowing Jessie, Margery, Cindy and Mary to score, ending the inning at 6-2, SAM. Hot competition The next two innings found both teams at their competitive best, with SCI scoring 1, holding SAM scoreless; then in turn, SCI was held scoreless, while SAM put on 2 runs, the score now at 8- 3, SAM. During the fourth inning, Tracy Larsen (playing short stop) was at her extraordinary best, making things look like child's play. Tracy snapped up a low hefly hit by Vicki making the first out, lhen tagged out Cindy at second (who was already jam- ming her way to third), then threw out Mary (who was beating her way back to first), and skillfully pulled off an awesome triple play. In the fifth, SCI was really fired up and on top of their game, cranking out 8 runs, with every- one in the line up hitting singles and Kai Aquinde hitting a double. Then, SCI quickly stifled SAM from scoring, leaving the final score 11-8, SCI. The next game, SCI playing the double header, found the first inning with Del Torto eager to put some runs on board. Colleen Hernandez, Diana Leonhardi, Erica Cushing and Jenny Agresta all hit singles, along with Tiffany Brannock and Jill Ross collecting doubles, bringing in the first 4 runs. After Ofie Jimenez and Jessica Garcia (two gun~d 2-runs for SCI, Jill Ross decided to close up left field, ending the first inning 4-2, Del Torto. In the second inning Del Torto continued on their uphill swing, with Tiffany and Jill collecting singles, and a double by Diana, followed up with a triple by Colleen, scoring 3 more runs. Then, with their defense still alive, they went on to hold SCI scoreless, 7-2 Del Torto. Fighting back In the third inning, SCI came back fighting, and it was Del Torto's turn to be held scoreless. Kai Aquinde cranked a solid hit out to right center bringing in Tracy; and then, with a race for home against the throw, Kai ended up crossing the plate to score another run for SCI, the score now at 7-4,Del Torto. After a time out for Jenny Agresta to recover from the calamity of a collision at home plate, Jenny was back out in the field ready to play. The fourth inning found com- petitive juices steaming, each team only allowing another run each, 8-5 Del Torto. By the fifth inning, Del Torto was determined to climb the insurance ladder by putting on 6 more runs. Then, Del Torto only allowed SCI 2 more runs, ending the game 14-7, with Del Torto claiming their first win of the season. Top batters for SAM were Margery, Cindy, Mary and Veron- ica each going 3 for 3 and Vicki went 2 for 3.

LEAGUE STANDINGS SCI 8-3, S&M 7-4, Del Torto 1-9. 6 The Santa Monica Civic Light Opera (SMCLO) is taking its charming, yet grand staging of Lerner and Loewe's classic American musical My Fair Lady, on the road to the Avalon Theater one night only July 27. My Fair Lady, which opened on Broadway in 1956 went on to garner every top theatre award in the world. The show's story was adapted from George Bernard Shaw's play and Gabrial Pascal's motion pic- ture 'Pygmalion' and most com- monly remembered for Rex Har- rison and Audrey Hepburn's por- trayal of Henry and Eliza in the 1964 movie. My Fair Lady concludes SMCLO's 04/05 theatre season, but Producer Brett Fisher has decided to give the residents and visitors of Avalon a taste of what Santa Monica enjoys year-round. The musical is about Henry Higgins, Professor of Phonetics and a conf'mned bachelor. Higgins makes an ambitious wager with a visiting colleague, Colonel Hugh Pickering, that he can transform grimy, unrefined, Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady. He will accomplish it by merely changing her way of speaking. Higgins wins his wager but doesn't bargain for the profound effect he has on Eliza. My Fair Lady will play -- for one night only -- at 8 p.m. on July 27, at 8pm. The regularly scheduled movie will be cancelled to accommodate this special event. Joining the cast of 20, will be a live orchestra, giving the show that extravagant musical experi- ence, for which all SMCLO musi- cals have been known for. Because of their short engage- ment, the musical will be per- formed in a "deluxe concert style" with costumes, choreogra- phy, and staging, however, with- out sets. "In a year of great plays and great productions, we have the special privilege of presenting the finest of them all -- My Fair Lady -- the grandest of the grand, the jewel of an altogether unforgettable year!" said Dr. Frank X. Ford, SMCLO's Artistic Director and director of the show. "With a brilliant cast, a sensation- al orchestra, and our eyes on a tri- umphant finish to our season, this is the one to see! Don't miss it!" The musical is packed with memorable songs, including "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly," "With a Little Bit of Luck," "The Rain in Spain," "On The Street Where You Live," "Get Me to the Church On Time," and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face." General admission tickets are $20 ($15 for seniors and $10 for 18 and under). Tickets may be purchased at any Discovery Tours ticket outlets in Avalon, any boat terminal, or in Dana Point. Tick- ets are also available anytime at the Avalon Theater box office, or by calling 800-322-3434.
