Kelly Patrick is taking her hockey stick to the beach. The Moorestown senior will attend the University of California at Berkeley and play field hockey for the Golden Bears this fall. Patrick chose California over Michigan State and Georgetown. Last fall, Patrick was a key component in the Quakers' offense as she delivered nine goals from the right wing. Moorestown went 19-1-1, and its only loss was a 1-0 decision to Shore Regional in the South Jersey Group 2 tournament.

Penn couldn't shake the rust from a monthlong layoff in its opening game of the NCAA baseball playoffs yesterday. The Quakers (27-10), who last played on April 27, were hammered by 18th- ranked California (37-23), 13-3, in the first round of the double- elimination NCAA Central regional. Tonight, Penn meets Southern, which lost last night to No. 4 Texas, 7-3. The loser is eliminated. Bart Frets hit a two-run homer and John Kuehl drove in three runs for California. The Golden Bears battered Penn starter Doug Smidt for seven hits and eight runs in 3 1/3 innings.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Hagen Danner homered and struck out 12, and Huntington Beach, Calif., spoiled the Pennsylvania party at the Little League World Series with a 2-0 victory over the hometown heroes from Clinton County on Thursday night. California will face Billings, Mont., in the U.S. final Saturday. Montana beat California, 1-0, in seven innings Wednesday night. Pennsylvania was eliminated. Danner was the biggest reason with a stellar night on the mound, leaving in the sixth because of Little League's pitch-count rules.

William W. Scranton 3d, the Republican who narrowly lost the election for governor last fall, has taken the advice of Horace Greeley and gone west. Scranton, 40, who served as lieutenant governor for eight years until January, started this week as chief operating officer of a California mail- order business that he said sells "high-quality garden tools and other related garden items. " "It was an offer I thought was terrific and so I took it," said Scranton. His wife, Coral, who is employed as an assistant manager at WITF, Harrisburg's public television station, and the couple's three children still live in Hummelstown, near Harrisburg.

Hillary Clinton may have won the Democratic presidential nomination even before the polls close Tuesday in California, three time zones to the west of New Jersey. So in terms of the decisive measurement - raw number of delegates won - California does not matter. Except that it does, because California is not just any state: It's the nation's most diverse and a mainstay of the Democratic Party. Losing there to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent leftist who only joined the party to seek its nomination, would damage Clinton at the end of a brutal primary season just as she needs to unify Democrats for the battle against Donald Trump.

Powerball's jackpot is on a faster trajectory, and California could be the cause. Two weeks ago, the most populous state in the union joined Powerball, and immediately set a record, selling $8,408,180 million worth of tickets in its first three days. That's "an all-time record for any new Powerball member," according to a California Lottery news release. More sales mean faster growing jackpots. A week ago, the grand prize was $80 million, and the last six times that happened, five times it rose by the minimal increment, first to $90 million, then to $100 million.

WASHINGTON - The third day of the Major League Baseball draft is a time to stockpile organizational depth, spliced with risks on some high-school players likely headed to college. The Phillies could have some cash to take those risks. They used their first three picks on the draft's final day to select three prep players from California - an area they mined in this June's draft. Josh Stephen, an outfielder from Mater Dei (Calif.) High, has a commitment to Southern Cal. He was the 11th-round pick.

The Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship finished exactly how many people expected as California came away with its fourth straight title Sunday at Talen Energy Stadium. Led by tournament MVP Jesse Milne, the Golden Bears beat UCLA, 31-7, in an all-California final. Milne scored five crucial tries in the tournament. Rugby sevens is an offshoot of the sport in which teams are made up of seven players, instead of the usual 15, with shorter matches. The Bears have won every single Collegiate Rugby Championship match since 2012, when they lost in the semifinals to eventual champion Dartmouth.

Don't you wish someone would do this for you?   California Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Los Angeles Democrat who is backed by labor unions, says he sympathizes with the little guy fighting unfair systems. "When a whistle-blower comes forward, they are usually doing a very good job for society," Gatto told me. But that's not how he felt last winter, when Gatto read an online commentary about how Vanguard Group, the Malvern-based private company that runs the nation's largest and fastest-growing mutual fund operation, might owe "billions" in unpaid income taxes.

If Berkeley, Calif., was to become the first city in the nation to pass a soda tax, Councilman Laurie Capitelli knew he would need a united front before the lobbyists showed up. So in 2014 he and the Berkeley Healthy Child Coalition brought together the NAACP, nearly every elected official in town, residents, and even unions to join the movement that they dubbed Berkeley vs. Big Soda. They argued that sugary drinks were a health hazard, the precursors to obesity and other troubles.

California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health was scheduled to vote on new regulations affecting the porn industry following a hearing last night in Oakland. The issue of course is safer sex, but porn industry officials say the proposed restrictions go too far and could result in actors having to wear not only condoms but also dental dams when engaging in oral sex and safety goggles when engaging in . . . ? Huh? When the sex is explosive it can cause retinal damage or when the sex is performed near a power saw?

LOS ANGELES - The Flyers went 0-for-California. Concluding a three-game West Coast trip Saturday, they dropped a 2-1 decision to the Los Angeles Kings before a sellout crowd at the Staples Center. It marked the first time since 2003-04 that the Flyers failed to win on a West Coast trip. The Flyers had been 5-0-1 in L.A. since a loss in 2003-04. "We can't expect to play 20 minutes and expect to win a hockey game," defenseman Michael Del Zotto said. The Flyers dominated the third period, outshooting the Kings by 16-8 and getting to within 2-1 on Brayden Schenn's power-play goal with 12 minutes, 10 seconds left.

LOS ANGELES - Flyers chairman Ed Snider welcomed a large group of visitors to his mansion in Montecito, Calif., on Thursday afternoon. Namely, his entire hockey team, coaches, and assorted club personnel. The entourage arrived by bus after practicing at a Santa Barbara rink that has a connection to Snider, who has been battling cancer for about two years. Snider, 82, shook hands, and hugged his visitors. "It was awesome," defenseman Luke Schenn said of the two-hour visit.

Things didn't go well last weekend for Southern California. The Trojans got off to a horrible start in Pac-12 play, losing, 41-31, at home to Stanford. Head coach Steve Sarkisian and defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox felt the wrath of the fans and their unmet expectations. But when Jake Olson came out Wednesday for his first practice with the team, life seemed a lot better. Olson, a freshman long snapper, is blind. A form of cancer cost him his sight at the age of 12. After snapping for his high school team in Orange County, he decided to enroll at USC, where he used to attend practices and games as the guest of former coach Pete Carroll.
