Tony Altobelli COSTA MESA - Two quarters of delight outweighed two quarters of cruise control for the Estancia High boys basketball team in Thursday night's 67-52 pool-play win over La Quinta at the Coast Christmas Classic. "There are some games where even if you lose, you can walk away happy with the effort," Estancia Coach Chris Sorce said. "Tonight, we won, but I'm still looking for four quarters of nonstop effort. It was a tough game to coach because everyone was sort of looking ahead to Edison in the semifinals."

Steve Virgen Estancia Coach Tamette Rappa displayed a no-nonsense, down-to-business attitude before and after her debut, in which her Eagles' girls basketball team defeated visiting La Quinta, 71-16, Tuesday night. After the game, Rappa was allegedly assaulted by a fan and rather than ignore the incident she called the Costa Mesa Police Department, filled out a report and asked that she be arrested (See story page A1). During the game, Rappa continued to shout instructions even though her team was leading 54-16 with five minutes left.

Joseph Boo COSTA MESA - If there was a bright side for Costa Mesa High's baseball team after Saturday's nonleague doubleheader with visiting La Quinta, it was the difference in scores between the first and second game. After getting hammered, 16-0, by the Aztecs in the opener, the Mustangs played a more respectable second game in an 8-4 loss. "I'm glad we had a doubleheader," Costa Mesa Coach Kirk Bauermeister said, "because the kids didn't have to go home after the 16-0 loss."

The Estancia High football team is coming off a thrilling, come-from-behind 34-33 win over JSerra. It's momentum the Eagles hope to keep as they play La Quinta tonight at 7 at Bolsa Grande High. "A year ago, if we were down by a touchdown or two, our kids would lose faith and throw in the towel," Estancia Coach Brian Barnes said. "Beating JSerra was great for us. I think it's one of the best wins in school history. It was definitely something for us to build on for the year, and for my career at Estancia."

COSTA MESA — Even though Estancia High’s play has been hot and cold so far this season, who are the Eagles to get in the way of an 18-game losing streak? A hungry La Quinta football team that hasn’t won in two calendar years gave the host Eagles a bit of a scare Friday night, but to no avail, as Estancia notched a 28-13 nonleague victory at Orange Coast College. Eagles senior quarterback Mike Morley tossed two touchdowns on eight-of-15 passing and had a 61-yard touchdown run of his own called back because of a holding penalty.

CORONA DEL MAR — In Danny Moskovits’ new pitching role at Corona del Mar High, he doesn’t have much room for error. Starting a baseball game is a lot different than closing one. “As a starter, you kind of get to feel out the game, see what they’re going to swing at,” he said. “You give up a couple of runs and it’s like no big deal.” Moskovits on Tuesday learned allowing runs as a closer isn’t good. It makes people nervous.

At least the Estancia High football team is playing in Costa Mesa this time. Three weeks from competing on the road, Garden Grove, Buena Park and the latest Mission Viejo, the Eagles are in need of a home football game. “It seems like we’re always away,” said Coach Mike Bargas, referring to not having a field on site and having to play home games at Newport Harbor and Orange Coast College. OCC will be Estancia’s home tonight at 7 against La Quinta (0-3)

Estancia High senior Nikkie Blinn could feel Costa Mesa junior Lauren Smith breathing down her neck. Blinn and Smith were perhaps the two best girls' water polo players in the city of Costa Mesa last winter. But they were battling in the anchor leg of the 200-yard freestyle relay at Wednesday's Orange Coast League swim meet at Costa Mesa High, and Smith was closing fast in the final 25 yards. Blinn said after the meet that she found a second wind. She held off Smith, touching in 1 minute, 52.45 seconds, with the Mustangs close behind in 1:52.78.

Winning was something that the Corona del Mar High softball team got to experience just once in Carly Smith's first year at the helm. The Sea Kings came out on the wrong side of the score every time but once last year. They finished 1-21, only winning a nonleague game against Costa Mesa. CdM showed Tuesday that it could again beat the Mustangs, taking a 7-1 decision at Bonita Creek Park. But this time, it's more than just a footnote. It's a continuation of the momentum the Sea Kings have been building in the early part of the season.

CORONA DEL MAR - Members of the Corona del Mar High softball team were frustrated late Friday afternoon. The Sea Kings fell to University, 10-1, in the championship game of the La Quinta Aztec Challenge on their home field. And, while first-year Coach Kiki Muñoz would have rather had her team win the tournament, she said the frustration was actually an encouraging sign. It was the first tournament championship game appearance for senior mainstays of the program like Delaney Owen and Lindsey Susolik.
