SAN DIEGO - Strong shooting from the free-throw line from Orange Coast College men's basketball and poor three-point shooting by Grossmont resulted in a 85-79 nonconference win for the visiting Pirates, their second in a row in San Diego. "It's never easy playing in San Diego. It's a long trip down there," Pirates coach Mark Hill said. "But to go down there and win two straight makes the trip a lot easier. For the Pirates (6-3), Saturday's win followed Wednesday's 108-101 overtime win over Cuyamaca College.

COSTA MESA - The Orange Coast College football team could justifiably blame the officials for coming up just short on its final possession of the first half of Saturday's nonconference game against visiting Grossmont. But when it comes to blame for a scoreless second half that turned a three-point lead into a 38-17 loss, the reasons get far less convenient. The Pirates (1-3) could point to a suddenly listless offense that earned just 136 yards after intermission. They might also cite a porous run defense that made it appear that the Griffins, not the Pirates, were the top rushing team in Southern California.

El CAJON - Any thoughts that the Orange Coast College football team was building on a potentially special season were likely washed away by a deluge of 35 straight points by host Grossmont Saturday. Grossmont rallied from a 10-0 deficit to earn a 49-31 conquest in a game between highly regarded teams that both came in 1-0 in the Southern Conference. The Griffins (4-1, 2-0 in conference), ranked No. 5 in Southern California and No. 13 in the state, extended their winning streak over OCC to five.

The Orange Coast College sports information department handed out the annual football yearbook before Saturday's Southern Conference game against visiting Grossmont. It turned out that the historical document came in handy, as research was required to confirm the worst day, numerically at least, in the 66-season history of the program. The Pirates (1-4, 0-2 in conference) surrendered their largest single-game scoring output ever in a 77-19 loss to the Griffins (4-1, 2-0). The 58-point margin was also the most lopsided defeat in 650 games since the program debuted in 1948.

LONG BEACH - Coaches are known for their idiosyncrasies, but Orange Coast College men's volleyball head man Travis Turner sounded a bit confused when asked about his team's strong start against Grossmont in the semifinals of the California Community College Athletic Assn. state championship on Thursday. "When we were up, 17-6, I was worried," said Turner, whose youthful team has been known to squander early success. "Because I thought that [the Pirates] aren't very mature, so a lead is sometimes tough for them to play with.

As the Orange Coast College men's volleyball team takes sole occupancy of the Pacific Coast Conference penthouse, it can be said that Grossmont has served as its front-desk clerk. The Griffins have continued to be the source of wake-up calls for the Pirates, the latest coming Friday in OCC's 23-25, 25-7, 25-15, 25-22 victory over the visitors from El Cajon in a battle for first place. It was Grossmont (11-5, 8-2 in conference) that handed the Coach Travis Turner's squad its only defeat, a five-game road setback on March 12. And it was the Griffins who appeared bent on repeating that outcome by taking the opening set in Costa Mesa.

When is too much of a good thing just that? Orange Coast College men's volleyball coach Travis Turner was not afraid to admit that after losing just four sets during a 10-0 start, it was time for a little adversity. So, when sophomore starting outside hitter Ty Hutchins forgot his jersey on a Pacific Coast Conference road trip to Grossmont last week, Turner elected to let one of his top offensive weapons sit out, rather than hand over the extra jersey he always brings along for just such instances.
