Ally Krikorian knows her family's history in the Costa Mesa High track and field program. Her older siblings — Danny, Stacy and Tony — all ran track for Mesa.

But the youngest Krikorian, a sophomore, is up to the challenge as she nears the end of a hectic spring athletic season. First, there is the Mesa track program, where the Mustangs are preparing for the Orange Coast League finals today at Orange Coast College.

Costa Mesa High football coach Jay Johnson is still waiting for his beginner's luck to kick in. Unfortunately for the first-year coach and the rest of the Mustangs' squad, there has been no such luck to speak of through more than a quarter of this season. Just when things were looking positive for backup quarterback Tony Krikorian, a second-quarter injury sidelined the junior the rest of the game and the Mustangs fell to host Laguna Beach, 31-9, Friday in a nonleague contest.

Rock songwriters have long had love-hate relationships with their cities of origin. A browse through the lyrics of Paul Simon ("Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town"), Bruce Springsteen ("Now Main Street's whitewashed windows and vacant stores / Seems like there ain't nobody wants to come down here no more") and others amounts to less than a nostalgic jaunt. However, when Dan Krikorian got tapped to write a song commemorating the 60th anniversary of Costa Mesa, his hometown, he didn't have any grim tales to pack into the lyrics.

COSTA MESA - For three quarters of the Battle for the Bell boys' basketball rivalry game at Estancia High, it wasn't much of a battle. These games between the Eagles and Costa Mesa tend to favor the Eagles whenever they are at home. The home team this time around was outhustled, outplayed, outrebounded and outscored. Not much was going right for the Eagles before the start of the fourth quarter on Wednesday. That five-game winning streak at home against the Mustangs seemed over, until they made one last run. A 17-point deficit at the start of the final quarter was trimmed to four with 72 seconds left.

When I found out Dan Krikorian was named boys' basketball coach at Costa Mesa High Tuesday morning a smile came to my face. What a great hire. Aside from getting a coach who knows the game real well, the Mustangs have a great leader. Krikorian will lead by example. This can be much more important than wins. He will prepare the players for life outside of basketball. Krikorian, or Danny as I know him, was a standout at Costa Mesa. As a student and basketball player for the Mustangs he was the type of person that was simply described as a "good kid. " He was a delight to report on when he played for Costa Mesa.
