IRVINE - Both the men's and women's cross country teams competed for Orange Coast College at the Orange Empire Conference Preview meet Saturday and Pirate Coach John Goldman was pleased with the results. "We were just edged out by Santa Ana by nine points and it looks like by the time conference championships roll around, the title will be very close," Goldman said.

Tony Altobelli WALNUT - The Corona del Mar High girls cross country team took on not only a tough field at Saturday's CIF Southern Section Division IV preliminaries, but also an unforgiving three-mile course at Mt. San Antonio College and walked away all smiles. The gleeful pack of Sea Kings took care of business, compiling the lowest point total of all the three heats with 34. "This group has worked hard all year long and this is why," Sea Kings Coach Bill Sumner said.

Steve Virgen HUNTINGTON BEACH - Although Estancia High girls cross country runner Liz Huipe came on a trial run the day before the real competition, the senior was still a bit confused with the course at Saturday's Huntington Beach Invitational at Central Park. "At first, I didn't know where to go," she said. Huipe, however, found her place. And it was out in front as she outdistanced the six-team Division II (small schools) field in the last half-mile of the three-mile race.

It was a sunny day March 20, in so many ways besides just the weather. Former high school cross-country and track teammates from nearly 40 years ago meet again, and it was like they had never left. Laguna Beach High’s track was officially named after former UC Irvine athlete and Laguna legend Eric Hulst, maybe the best distance runner in Orange County prep history. And, oh yeah, the Laguna Beach Trophy Invitational returned after a more-than-25-year absence for its 42nd incarnation.

First-year coaches Sarah Nguyen and Mike Sciacca have no set goals for their Costa Mesa High girls cross country team. During a five-day trip near Arrowhead Lake to camp, train in the high altitude and bond, the two coaches let their runners convene by themselves. "We want them to come up with their own set of goals," Sciacca said. "Cross country is supposed to be fun and teach you hard work pays off." There are no stars on this team. Jasmin Day, who finished fifth at the Golden West League finals last season, graduated.

Amber Steen grew up a few doors down from UC Irvine women's cross country and track and field coach Vince O'Boyle. But, until this past school year, O'Boyle had to follow her collegiate career from afar. The Newport Harbor High product, however, transferred from the University of Arizona to UCI for the 2005-06 campaign, then created some lasting memories for her coach and her teammates. Steen won the Big West Conference individual cross country title in the fall, helping the Anteaters also capture the team crown to highlight a 2005-06 women's athletic year that included several other noteworthy accomplishments.

Newsflash - Woodbridge High has a good cross country program. OK, so maybe it's not news that Woodbridge's boys' and girls' teams once again are expected to be the teams to beat for the Pacific Coast League titles. But this year it's a little different at the top. Warriors coach George Varvas has stepped down to an assistant's role to create an opportunity for new head coach Bryan Pacheco. "It's exciting for me," said Pacheco, 37. "I enjoy cross country, I enjoy working with the kids and running with the kids.
