Monette was the runner-up in the 50 freestyle (25.78)

Todd Macklin singled and, one out later, Nick Palchikoff walked to set the table for a two-run double by Sea King Tyler Lents in the second.

LOS ALAMITOS - Estancia High girls basketball coach Paul Kirby had root canal surgery early Wednesday, but his team filled its prescription for relief with a 68-48 pool-play win over Magnolia at the Los Alamitos Tournament Wednesday night. Estancia sophomore Xochitl Byfield scored a season-high 21 points to help the Eagles (6-3) overcome a 13-11 first-quarter deficit.

What's hot for holiday decorating this year? Magnolia leaves, with their big glossy green leaves and copper undersides, are this season's big news. Magnolia wreaths and garlands are dramatic. Just their size alone makes them look important. Combined with other seasonal fruit and greens, these giants in stature and style make a beautiful addition to any door or mantle. I stumbled across a Web site a few weeks ago that features fresh magnolia wreaths and garlands: www.citywreaths.

Opponents who try to run the football on Estancia High may discover there is no end to such means. This is due, in large part, to the Eagles' mean pair of ends, seniors David Rodriguez and Cesar Romero. The duo, along with rotating senior noseguards Rick Valdez and Robert Aquilera, helped keep Magnolia in check in Thursday's 25-8 season-opening nonleague victory. "David and Cesar just played great," Estancia Coach Dave Perkins said. "On the first play of the game, they tried to run a counter and David took on the pulling guard and the pulling tackle and made the tackle.

As players warmed up in the Corona del Mar High gym, Magnolia Coach Matt Tweed talked to a couple of fans in the stands that made the road trip to support his boys' basketball team. The topic was running, not the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA basketball playoffs. He told the fans about CdM's well known distance coach, Bill Sumner. The school's basketball team ended up running circles around Magnolia on the court. Fourth-seeded CdM ran away from the Sentinels in the second half en route to a 58-27 win on Wednesday.

ANAHEIM —The Corona del Mar High football team blew off more than steam after suffering its first loss of the season last week. The Sea Kings returned to the field Saturday night and blew out Magnolia, 52-13, at Western High. It is hard to believe CdM actually trailed after the first play from scrimmage went for a touchdown in the nonleague game. CdM (4-1), ranked ninth in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division poll, responded with a much-needed victory after losing the Battle of the Bay last week at Newport Harbor.

NEWPORT BEACH — When one aspect of your game isn’t clicking, stick to what has proved to wear down the opposition. Corona del Mar High unleased a potent running game after attempting to go through the air in the early stages of Friday night’s nonleague game against Magnolia and by doing so, surged to a 27-0 victory over the Sentinels at Newport Harbor High. The Sea Kings did take this one on the ground, using long touchdown runs by J.D. Abbott, quarterback Michael Borchard and Alex Swigert, to complete nonleague play with a 4-1 record.

ANAHEIM — When it was over, the Estancia High football players huddled together for a celebratory snapshot. But the Eagles’ 21-0 nonleague win over Magnolia Thursday at Glover Stadium is clearly more than a flash point to a season in which bright things figure to lay ahead. The win, keyed by an amorphous defense and a methodical, sometimes explosive ground game led by senior tailback Alex Abalos, was the third straight for the Eagles, who improved to 3-1. The three-game win streak matches the program’s longest since the 1996 squad opened the season 5-0. It was the first shutout in 27 games, since Estancia stifled Costa Mesa, 17-0, late in 2006.

Estancia High football coach Mike Bargas was cautious about revealing too much of the defensive plan Eagles coordinator Dave Holland is preparing for tonight’s 7 o’clock nonleague game against Magnolia. But there is virtually zero mystery about the offensive plan utilized by the Sentinels (0-2), coached by former Estancia and Costa Mesa head man Dave Perkins. “They’re fairly one-dimensional,” Bargas said of the smashmouth double wing scheme Magnolia will deploy at La Palma Park’s Glover Stadium.
