HUNTINGTON BEACH — Every week, Corona del Mar High girls’ water polo Coach Aaron Chaney gives his team a quote of the week. This week, they’ve had several. One of the ones delivered Friday afternoon was “One finger cannot lift a pebble,” an old Hopi Indian saying. “They understood what it meant,” Chaney said after he got a total team effort, with goals from four different players in a 4-3 win over Edison in the CIF Southern Section Division I quarterfinals at Golden West College.

The name Dave Mohs is attached to a lot of volleyball events. There is the Dave Mohs Girls’ Volleyball Championships, the Dave Mohs Boys’ Championships and the Dave Mohs boys’ and girls’ high school All-Star match. Edison High even named its gym after Dave Mohs. Who was Dave Mohs? He must be someone special to have so many people respect him so much. Dave was a basketball and volleyball coach at Edison. While he won a lot of games as a coach, he is remembered by so many of us because of what he was as a leader, a professional and a class act. A former basketball player at Beverly Hills High and Redlands University in the early ’60’s, Dave started his coaching career as an assistant to the legendary Elmer Coombs at Huntington Beach High in 1965.

COSTA MESA — Even competing against one’s biggest rival, sometimes the most dangerous adversary isn’t on the other side of the net. Orange Coast College women’s volleyball coach Chuck Cutenese suggested this was the case for the Pirates, who came into Wednesday’s Orange Empire Conference match with rival Golden West with an unbeaten record and ranked No. 3 in the state. But having played no one in the top 25 its first seven matches, OCC was clearly not used to the pressurized atmosphere created by the importance of the match, as well as a raucous crowd consisting of dozens of Rustlers rooters.

COSTA MESA - Just last season, the rivalry football game between Orange Coast College and neighboring Golden West was renamed the West-Coast Showdown. And, for the second straight season, it proved to be a show-down to the wire. The host Pirates, ranked No. 19 in the state and No. 11 in Southern California, held on for a 24-21 victory Saturday, though their celebration of an unprecedented third straight win over the Rustlers could not begin without a final sigh of relief after time had expired.
