Youth basketball: Bulls take fourth grade title

May 17, 2000

COSTA MESA - The fourth grade Costa Mesa Bulls from the Harbor Area

Boys and Girls Club of Costa Mesa charged through the opposition en route

to the league championship.

Not bad for a team that had a regular season record of 2-8.

After upsets over the No. 4 and No. 2 seeded teams in the first two

rounds of the playoffs, the Bulls stunned the No. 1 ranked and undefeated

team in the third round and gained a bye in the fourth round.


In the championship game, the Bulls trailed early, 19-2, before

outscoring their foes, 32-12, the rest of the way.

Bucko Theriot led the Bulls with 23 points in the title game, while

strong play was turned in by Scott Vackar and Justin Bailey.
