All season long, Karlee Riggs has been a reliable force for the Orange Coast College women's volleyball team. Pasadena City College Tammy Silva would say the Pirates relied on their standout outside hitter a little too much Saturday in the second round of the California Community College Athletic Assn. Southern Regional playoffs at Orange Coast. "Wherever she was, that's where they were going," Silva said. Orange Coast's one-dimensional offense allowed the Lancers to zero in on Riggs, as the rest of the Pirates couldn't keep the visitors honest.

BAKERSFIELD - Only seven times in 44 games this season did Orange Coast College baseball Coach John Altobelli have to address his players after a loss. But when it came time to speak from the heart after being eliminated from the California Community College Athletic Assn. State Championship on Saturday, the words he delivered to his team were as obvious as they were true. "I told them that we loved them," Altobelli said of the aftermath of a 5-4 defeat in 12 innings to Rio Hondo in the four-team, double-elimination tournament at Bakersfield Community College.

A reduction in size and changes in parking and traffic management have already began to yield positive results at the Orange Coast College swap meet. I think everybody will notice more changes in the next two months or so, but we will never be able to change some community members' minds about our swap meet. They are the hard-core ones who try to hide their hatred behind parking, traffic, trash and other superficial issues. These people are willing to put up with traffic and noise on Bear Street or Bristol Street or 17th Street, and motorcycle racing at the fair grounds, etc. They love to enjoy some of the OCC Performing Arts programs or community education that the swap meet revenue helps to support, but they don't like the way OCC gets revenue to support these programs.

SANTA ANA — Orange Coast College hitters banged the ball all around, even out of the yard at Santa Ana College on Tuesday. But the difference in the Pirates' crucial 5-4 Orange Empire Conference baseball triumph came down to a distance barely beyond a bunt. The Pirates took a 4-3 lead in the fifth inning when Tommy Bell scored from third on an overthrow back to the pitcher from Dons catcher Cory Bistline with the bases loaded and two outs. With OCC ahead, 5-4, in the bottom of the eighth inning, Pirates catcher Daniel Delaney chased down a pitch that popped out of his glove and made a 25-foot flip to pitcher Dominic Purpura at the plate.
