BASEBALL Doubleheader Host Vanguard University swept Biola in Golden State Athletic Conference play on Monday, behind the strong hitting of Thomas Mobley and a pair of quality performances from starting pitchers. Mobley went two for four with a run batted in in the 3-1 opening win and was two for three with an RBI to help the Lions post a 4-3 win in Game 2. Scott Torrey allowed just one earned run and seven hits in nine innings in Game 1 to improve to 4-1. In the second game, Richard Perry allowed one earned run and four hits in five innings, but wasn't around for the decision.

Board trustees have discussed increasing full-time faculty since September, when they tasked Chancellor Andrew Jones with developing a hiring plan. The district organized a "consultation council" consisting of faculty members, union and student representatives, and classified staff to assist with the development of the plan. District officials and board trustees met Wednesday night for a study session to discuss the council's findings.

SANTA ANA - One point is all that separated Estancia High from first-place Godinez in the Orange Coast League. The two boys' soccer teams met on Tuesday and the one-point deficit in the standings turned into four. The host Grizzlies distanced themselves from Estancia on Tuesday and they moved closer to repeating as league champions after a resounding 4-0 win at Centennial Regional Park. The Eagles' league title hopes are dashed. They had to become the first team this season to defeat Godinez to have a chance at the league crown, their first in four seasons.

LAGUNA BEACH - The last time the Costa Mesa High boys' basketball team beat Laguna Beach, Mike Molina played in the game. Seven seasons later, he is back with the Mustangs and facing the Breakers. He no longer takes shots for the team. He now calls the shots as Costa Mesa's coach. As a 23-year-old, Molina has made a lot of strides for a first-year coach. His alma mater just cannot seem to defeat the Breakers, even with him in charge of Costa Mesa. The Mustangs traveled to Laguna Beach and suffered their worst setback of the season, losing the Orange Coast League game, 81-53, on Wednesday.

Deborah Wilder Moseley is not the most talented actor in her family - or so she believes. Born to Lynna Joy Armour, who won an Atlas Award in 1956 for her performance in "The Moon is Blue," and William Moseley, who worked for NBC and produced the Sunday afternoon soap opera "Matinee Theater," Moseley grew up in a highly creative environment. It is no wonder, then, that by age 6 she had taken a page from her parents' book. Now 56, the Santa Ana resident has racked up three decades of experience making commercials and working on television and in film.

LAGUNA BEACH - In stoppage time, Coach Robert Castellano wanted to know how much time remained in the Estancia High boys' soccer match. He asked the referee, who in turn raised one finger, signaling one minute. Sixty seconds proved to be more than enough time for the Eagles to break a scoreless tie on Friday night. In such a short period, they put together two scoring chances. The second shot on goal, the one furthest out, found the back of the net at Laguna Beach. Abarham Cortez blasted a shot from outside the box, putting it where the goalkeeper stood no chance of stopping the ball.
