IRVINE — The Orange Coast College women’s volleyball team served notice it might not be too willing to pass the torch of Orange Empire Conference supremacy to host Irvine Valley Friday night. But, after the Pirates’ first-game victory, the Lasers proceeded to snatch it from the visitors and seemed to begin swinging it at their collective head. The result was a 25-30, 30-18, 30-17, 30-25 triumph that made IVC (14-0, 7-0 in conference) the likely heir to the conference throne.

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.

Regeneration is a key part of nature, so perhaps it's fitting that the art display at Irvine Valley College's new Life Sciences building arose out of discarded materials. When school officials, Irvine Chamber of Commerce members and others gather on campus Wednesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, one wall of the building's interior will sport a mural and a series of jars holding cycad trees. The surfaces of the mural and jars feature mosaic designs made from broken plates, stained glass, tile, ceramics and more.

Some 23 games in, the Orange Coast College women's basketball team is pretty much on Coach Mike Thornton's last nerve. But after coming from behind to secure a 57-49 Orange Empire Conference triumph over visiting Irvine Valley on Wednesday, the Pirates are also perhaps just two crucial road victories from at least a share of the conference championship. OCC, which missed 14 of its first 15 field-goal attempts had just three points for the first 9 minutes, 15 seconds of the game, and trailed, 22-10, with 5:37 left in the first half, improved to 14-9, 5-2 in conference.
