COSTA MESA - It may be a little too late in the season to save Coach Travis Turner's ravaged voice, but the Orange Coast College men's volleyball team required little instruction in a dominating Pacific Coast Conference sweep of visiting Palomar on Wednesday. The Pirates (8-4, 5-1 in conference) needed only 60 minutes to conquer the Comets, 25-12, 25-12, 25-21, behind a match-high 12 kills from freshman opposite Dillon Emery and 28 assists from sophomore setter Michael Ensign.

COSTA MESA — While the bitter pill of defeat continued to occupy the palette of his teammates, Orange Coast College quarterback Kyle Manning was more likely to have swallowed dozens of rubber pellets kicked up by his frequent contact with the FieldTurf surface Saturday against visiting Palomar. Battered and bruised by more than a dozen hits in the pocket, most of which he barely had time to brace against as he stood in and delivered the ball, Manning will have more than a tender psyche on which to receive treatment after a 41-9 National Division football bashing at the hands of the Comets.

The take-home tests are over. Now is the time for the real studying to begin for the Orange Coast College football team.

It will only be Mission Conference foes the rest of the way for Orange Coast, which plays host to Palomar today at 5 p.m. The 12 conference teams enter today with a combined record of 19-5.

Coming up clutch doesn't always mean driving in the winning run in the last of the ninth. Clutch situations often arise less obviously, in the first inning, and, say even in the fourth. Such was the case for the host Orange Coast College baseball team on Tuesday, as it produced a string of two-out hits in the early innings to defeat Palomar, 6-2, in the season opener for both teams. OCC, ranked No. 2 in Southern California in the preseason, in fact, scored its first four runs with a string of two-out hits to give starting pitcher David Hill and four relievers enough to handle the No. 4-ranked Comets.

It's difficult to call it a silver lining, but in the aftermath of one of his Orange Coast College women's basketball team's worst performances in his 25 seasons, Coach Mike Thornton's first postgame task was delivering praise. "He told me how well-coached we are and how much energy we have and how he loves how hard our kids play," said Palomar coach and former OCC player and assistant coach Leigh Marshall, whose Comets dropped an 85-47 drubbing on the Pirates in the consolation semifinals of the Erin Tomlinson Coast Christmas Classic on Thursday at OCC. "I'm proud of what Leigh has done with that program and with that team," said Thornton, whose squad was outdone in every category, including those not on the stat sheet.

ESCONDIDO - It was happy returns that proved most crucial in the Southern Conference opener between Orange Coast College and Palomar on Saturday at Escondido High. But the Pirates' 72-mile bus ride home did not turn out to be one of them. Instead, host Palomar used a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and two long punt returns that also led to touchdowns to account for the bulk of its 38-16 triumph. Though the Pirates fell to 1-3 and are now 5-24 in the last five-plus seasons in conference play, their visit to San Diego County was not altogether dour.

COSTA MESA - With eight wins in the previous nine meetings, in which it built combined 283-111 scoring margin, it could be argued that Palomar Community College had taken ownership of the Orange Coast football program's dignity. So it was sweet indeed for the Pirates when they emerged with not only a 35-28 upset victory to open Southern Conference play Saturday, but also paraded off the field with a sizable portion of Palomar's collective will. "It feels good," OCC sophomore guard Kyle Finney said after the Pirates (3-1, 1-0 in conference)
