With its thick grass that slows runners during the first 150 meters, one hill made of dirt and the other made of asphalt, the three-mile course at Irvine Regional Park in Orange will prepare local cross country runners for the CIF Southern Section meet. Leading up to the divisional preliminaries Nov. 12 at Mt. San Antonio College - where huge hills with its own names are the norm - Saturday's Orange County Cross Country Championships could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship between runner and tougher course.

In a couple of weeks, Corona del Mar High junior Ashlee Powers will celebrate her 17th birthday. Her cross country coach, Bill Sumner, will turn 63 on the same day, Dec. 22. Powers can call her fellow Capricorn to wish him a happy birthday, but the call itself will be nothing new. Powers has had Sumner on speed-dial ever since she started running for the Sea Kings. "I'll call him several times [during] the week," Powers said. "We don't go a day without talking. I always want to know what I can do, because I really want to meet my full potential.

Maddie O'Connor and Annie Alvarado have known each other since they were 5 years old. They played AYSO together, then on rival club teams, before they reunited at Corona del Mar High. As the two prepare for the stretch run of their final season with the CdM girls' soccer team, they each made a big decision regarding their future after high school on Wednesday.

Alvarado and O'Connor still shared a special moment as they signed national letters of intent with the UCLA and UC Santa Barbara women's soccer programs, respectively.

Paige Tennison still has those conversations with her mother, the ones she has been having since her sophomore year at Newport Harbor High. Tennison sees a cross country time and is amazed by it, perhaps temporarily forgetting the times that she is now capable of producing as a senior. "I'm just going out and working as hard as I can," Tennison said. "I'll tell my mom, 'Oh my gosh, she's amazing!' And my mom will be like, 'Paige, you've ran faster than that.' And it's like, 'Oh, right.' It hasn't clicked still, I guess.
