A $1.3 million project is underway at Orange Coast College, where new artificial turf is being installed on the school's soccer field. For the past three weeks, workers have been installing FieldTurf on the north end of the campus, off Adams Avenue. The field is actually much larger than a regulation soccer field. OCC's new artificial-turf field measures 120 by 500 feet. OCC's soccer field project is being funded through the passage of Measure C on the November 2002 ballot.

Nixing plans to add fake grass to Corona del Mar's tree wells, the Business Improvement District's board members now are planning a spring event that could fill 150 neglected tree wells with expert landscaping, according to memos and interviews with BID members. Most of Corona del Mar's tree wells are "unsightly" and filled with dirt and rocks — but artificial turf is not the answer, according to a draft of a proposal that the Business Improvement District will submit to the City Council.

The Battle of the Bay high school football rivalry is special. The players know each other. Many grew up together and played on youth teams together. As I found out last year, one player at Corona del Mar can even be best friends with someone at Newport Harbor. Four years ago, one cousin, Dillon Norton, played for the Sea Kings and another, Parker Norton, for the Sailors. The experience is one families like the Nortons share. The two programs even share the football field on Newport Harbor's campus.

Super Bowl Sunday will sure to be extra special for Ray Rando, a Newport Beach resident who grew up in New Orleans. There’s no doubt he loves the Saints. He’s been a die-hard fan ever since he was a child. When he was 8, he met Archie Manning, one of the all-time greatest Saints, during a training camp practice and went home with an autographed football. Rando later became a friend of Manning’s son, Cooper, and he watched Peyton grow up when they all would sometimes work out together at the Archie Manning Gold’s Gym. So Rando’s been rooting for the Saints back when they were the “Aints,” and a paper bag to cover the face was the proper attire for home games.

WICHITA, Kan. — It was fitting, perhaps, that the play that produced the only run of UC Irvine's Super Regional pitcher's duel with host Wichita State Saturday was directed toward the mound. Shockers' reliever Noah Krol, who had just entered the game, failed to stab UCI designated hitter Sean Madigan's eighth-inning comebacker with the bases loaded. The ball caromed off the mound, Krol's glove and arm, back toward the third-base line, allowing Cody Cipriano to score for the No. 4-ranked Anteaters (44-15-1)

On Aug. 6, Coach J.R. Tolver and his Sage Hill School team stepped on the football field for the first time this season. The season opener isn't until Aug. 24, but the walk-through was like no other. Gone was the grass. In was a new artificial turf. The timing was perfect to Tolver. The $1 million renovation to Ramer Field looked complete, just in time for the Lightning to begin the first week of two-a-day practices. "You can tell there's definitely a sense of pride associated with a great facility," said Tolver, whose team plays host to Notre Dame of Riverside in a scrimmage on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. "One of the things that [my players have]
