COSTA MESA - After sweeping the competition statewide, Costa Mesa High School's Business Academy will compete in New York City in March for a national title. Mesa's two Virtual Enterprise companies, the Great Park Wildlife Center and Abeille, finished first and second, respectively, at the California State Business and Trade Fair earlier this month in Bakersfield - the first school to ever take both awards in the same year. "It was a very emotional moment. It was probably the first time I cried of happiness," said Cesar Chavez, 17, who served as the Great Park Wildlife Center chief executive in the competition.

Two words, two little words. Mention those words to a high school wrestler and watch his eyes light up. State meet. It's the ultimate goal — other than winning it, of course — of every high school wrestler. But the road to the CIF State Championship Meet is long and bumpy, treacherous and winding. And for most, that road ends with a dead end before reaching that final destination. Irvine High's 103-pounder Nam Tran got there, wrestling Friday in Bakersfield at Rabobank Arena.

By Friday, Newport Harbor High's Dominic Bulone will have coached two Beaudette brothers at the CIF State wrestling finals. Four years after Brian Beaudette reached state, his younger brother, Bradley, is in Bakersfield. Bulone is hoping to stay in town for more than one day. Bradley is in the 189-pound division and Bulone believes the senior can place in the top eight at state. Bulone said both brothers hate to lose. There is one big difference between the two. "Bradley reacts differently to a loss compared to his brother," Bulone said after Bradley won the Sunset League title last month.

TEMECULA — Newport Harbor High senior wrestler Bradley Beaudette is a win away from a spot in the CIF State Championship Meet, after the first day of action at the CIF Masters Meet at Temecula Valley High. Beaudette, wrestling in the 189-pound class, went 1-1 on Friday. Newport Harbor Coach Dominic Bulone said Beaudette can clinch a top-nine finish by defeating Temecula Valley senior Francisco Bernal in his first match today. If Beaudette loses to Bernal, he would have to come back to win two straight matches to make state, March 4-5 at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.

BAKERSFIELD — A block away from the hotel Josh George tried to sleep in before his big wrestling debut, trains roared and horns blared. The noise woke up George five times in the middle of the night. “Who asked for multiple wake-up calls?” a confused George said to himself. Not his roommate, Cameron Rausch. He wasn’t wrestling. Not George. Not before the Newport Harbor High 140-pound senior competed in the CIF State wrestling championships in Bakersfield.
