IRVINE - Students who attended the UC Irvine nonconference men's basketball home game Tuesday against NAIA representative San Diego Christian were presented with one complimentary Scantron answer sheet. The idea, presumably was that for the student rooters, just as for the Anteaters on the floor, a test would loom sometime in their future. UCI (4-5) played as if it were an open-book exercise in dominating the Hawks, 94-52, to snap a four-game losing streak and improve to 3-0 at home.

ORANGE — In a sport that can defy dominance, Santiago Canyon College consistently dribbles out of the fray of misfortune that can doom even the most superior of women's soccer squads. The Hawks have won the last nine Orange Empire Conference titles and, during that stretch, have added two state crowns and a pair of state runner-up finishes. All the while, they have compiled a 194-11-15 record for a pristine winning percentage of .916. Yet, as the scoreless moments stretched on in the second-round game of the California Community College Athletic Assn.

Rick Devereux The way that the Newport Harbor High football team is playing right now, the only team that could defeat them is themselves. The offense is balanced. The defense is aggressive. The special teams are stellar. It appears that the only way the Sailors will lose is if they look past an opponent or become overconfident and not prepare for a seemingly easy game. Such a trap could be set as Newport (7-0-1, 2-0-1 in the Sea View League)

Tony Altobelli LAGUNA HILLS - Costly turnovers and two hot shooting Hawks were too much to overcome for Newport Harbor High's girls basketball team in Tuesday's 51-22 Sea View League loss to host Laguna Hills. Megan Aaker led the Hawks with 20 points, while Ann Bubriski added 12 for the Hawks (9-9, 1-1 in league). Freshman Athena Vasquez led the Sailors (3-14, 0-2 in league) with seven points, while senior Nicole Ashton and junior Molly Weedn chipped in with four apiece.

Tony Altobelli LAGUNA HILLS - The fortunate bounces that have evaded Newport Harbor High's girls soccer team made their appearance in Tuesday's 2-0 Sea View League win over host Laguna Hills. "We've been in a bunch of our games, but just haven't gotten any good luck," Coach Jason Sorrell said. "Today, we played hard as a team and kept the pressure on the other team. It was a good win for us." First-half goals by Tory Manchester and Laura Kauth were the difference for the Sailors (2-6-2, 1-1 in league)

NEWPORT BEACH — Two weeks is how much time the Corona del Mar High football team had to prepare for a team that hasn’t lost in the Pacific Coast League since joining it four years ago. How Laguna Hills has dominated league play, opponents might need an entire season to get ready for the Hawks. The Sea Kings are the latest league team to lose to Laguna Hills, falling 27-0 at Newport Harbor High Thursday night. Since 2006, defending champion Laguna Hills is 11-0-1 in league.

LAGUNA HILLS — A virulent first-half turnover virus was more than partially responsible for a surprisingly lopsided Pacific Coast League-opening loss for the Corona del Mar High football team Friday night. But host Laguna Hills, unbeaten and ranked No. 1 in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division, also had plenty to do with flattening the Sea Kings, 34-7. CdM (5-2, 0-1), ranked No. 4 in the Southern Division, committed four turnovers on its first five possessions, each one giving the Hawks (6-0, 1-0)

Richard Dunn CORONA DEL MAR - In the home debut of first-year Corona del Mar High boys basketball coach Ryan Curry Wednesday night against nonleague foe Laguna Hills, a clinic broke out in the second half. But it wasn't Curry's. Veteran Laguna Hills Coach Dave Brown proved to be a savvy opponent as the Hawks (6-6) used a successful full-court press in the third quarter to turn a close game into a 64-54 victory. After Corona del Mar (3-8) led most of the first half, the Hawks rallied for a 30-28 halftime lead, capped by a four-point play by Marc Dimick with 0:54 left.

There have been times when the biggest challenge associated with dealing with the UC Irvine big men fell upon airline ticket agents trying to find them all comfortable seats. The burden, these days, rests more on opposing men's basketball players and coaches on game nights, as Coach Russell Turner's legion of length continues to be potent, productive and, just as impressively, protective, on the court. John Ryan (6-foot-10), Will Davis (6-8) and Mamadou Ndiaye (7-6) combined to produce eight of the Anteaters' 10 blocked shots in a 91-56 dispatching of NAIA representative San Diego Christian in the final nonconference game of the regular season on Saturday at the Bren Events Center.

ORANGE - Internet directions to the Santiago Canyon Community College campus end with a left turn on Trails End. Recent history would suggest that Orange Coast College women's soccer coach Kevin Smith considers the command more foreshadowing than coincidence. For the third straight season, OCC was eliminated from the Southern California Regional playoffs by the host Hawks, who have a history of mastery over the Pirates that spans well beyond the scope of Smith's memory. This time, No. 2-seeded Santiago Canyon (20-1-2)

NEWPORT BEACH - You have to go back 12 years to find the last time the Corona del Mar High football team began the season with a loss. You have to go back almost as far for the last time the Sea Kings beat the kind of team they played Friday night. When it comes to season openers, the Sea Kings tend to be successful. That isn't the case when they face a Sea View League opponent. Laguna Hills ruined the CIF Southern Section Southern Division champion Sea Kings' debut, beating the hosts, 21-12, at Newport Harbor High.

I found a sick red-tailed hawk March 16 below a tall eucalyptus in the Bonita Canyon reservoir area of the Irvine Ranch Water District land. The bird was alert but unable to move, and I was able to capture it with the guidance of the Newport Beach Animal Control unit. I placed the raptor in a box in my garage and kept it warm and quiet until they picked up the hawk Saturday morning. The raptor survived the night and was taken to the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach, which then stabilized the bird, treated it for poison and sent it to the South Bay Wildlife Rehab in Rancho Palos Verdes.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Football coaches have long harped on the importance of the holy trinity of offense, defense and special teams. Costa Mesa High Coach Wally Grant liked what he saw from two out of three Friday, which proved to be just enough for the Mustangs to claim a seesaw, 34-31, nonleague win at Ocean View. The Mustangs (3-1 for the first time since 2001) made four of their five conversion kicks, while Ocean View scored only once on the untimed down that followed its five touchdowns.

LAGUNA HILLS — Like the short-porch center-field fence perched atop a virtual cliff, the Corona del Mar High baseball team spent the majority of its Pacific Coast League game at Laguna Hills Tuesday on the precipice. But, time after time, the Sea Kings found footing on higher ground in an 8-1 victory that helps them maintain their spot at the top of the league standings. “Superior defense, clutch pitching and great hitting,” said CdM Coach John Emme, whose squad, after a 2-5 start, has opened league 2-0 and is tied for first with defending league champion Beckman.
