By Bill Paterson

El Camino's Bill Baxter, the section's career victory leader, goes after win No. 600 tonight at 7 o'clock when the third-seeded Eagles (27-1) play host to No. 6 Rocklin (18-10) in the second round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II girls basketball playoffs.

Baxter, who has won five section and three CIF Northern California championships, earned win No. 599 on Tuesday when the Eagles walloped Rio Linda 84-41.

Rocklin, a resurgent program under first-year coach Rob Ferraro, defeated Vacaville 67-61.

In other girls contests of note tonight:

• No. 11 Pleasant Grove (18-10) plays at No. 3 Oak Ridge (19-9) in a D-I quarterfinal and will try to beat the Trojans for the first time this season after losing to the defending CIF D-I state champions in the Oak Ridge Shootout Dec. 11 and twice in the Delta River League.

• No. 7 Inderkum puts its impressive 26-2 record on the line at No. 2 Del Oro (23-3), The Bee's top-ranked team, in a D-II game.

• Two of the section's most athletic teams clash as No. 6 Valley (20-8) plays at No. 3 Vanden (24-4) in a D-III quarterfinal.
