"My parents came to their first water polo game and said, 'I'm not sure I like you playing this sport.' But I said, 'Well, it's too late now."' said Kruse, who would become a key member of the U.S. national team, following an NCAA All-American career at UC Irvine.

Kenneth D. Yglesias As chancellor at a community college district that receives less per student in state funding than most colleges in the state, I was thrilled that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger included $40 million for equalization in his May revise budget. That $40 million is an important second step in a multi-year plan to equalize funding per student at every community college in the state, including several community colleges in Orange County that are "underfunded" compared with colleges in other parts of the state.

Apparently, one way to slow down the state's most productive hitting team is to, well, throw slower pitches. Fullerton College sophomore left-hander Nick Morton used that approach to help the visiting Hornets edge Orange Coast, 3-1, in an Orange Empire Conference baseball battle on Tuesday. OCC, ranked No. 1 in Southern California, entered the game leading the state in hits (219), doubles (40) home runs (nine), batting average (.317) and slugging percentage (.443). But Morton, with his repertoire of slow, slower and slowest, kept the Pirates off balance to earn his fourth win in five decisions and his third complete game.

COSTA MESA — The old adage of "Hit'em where they ain't" was not followed by the Orange Coast College softball team during Thursday's 4-1 Orange Empire Conference loss to visiting Fullerton College. Despite just one run on three hits, several pitches were hit hard by the Pirate batters, but were caught by various members of the Hornets' defense. In the fourth, Kayla Blanco hit a line shot up the middle, but second baseman Steph Martinez made the backhand catch. One inning later, with a runner on first and just one out, Ashley Arrington hit a shot deep in the hole, but shortstop Tiffany Kaiser made a diving stop and retired the baserunner at second for a key out.
