Corona del Mar High's Chase Wheatley saw his prep golf career come to an end Thursday in Pasadena, but he took pride in a strong finish to his senior season. Wheatley shot one-over-par 73 and did not finish in the top six to advance from the CIF/SCGA Regional Qualifier at Brookside Golf Club. He finished with two birdies and three bogeys. "I felt like overall I'm very pleased with the season," said Wheatley, bound for Rutgers.

COSTA MESA - Like an aerodynamically challenged float serve, early season rankings can dip and dive, tailing with each new on-court tale. On Wednesday, it was the Orange Coast College players' ability to make the ball move that figures to create upward mobility for the Pirates in the California community college women's volleyball rankings. Coach Chuck Cutenese's Pirates, ranked No. 7 in the state, throttled No. 3-ranked Pasadena, 25-13, 25-23, 25-19, in a nonconference match at OCC. Sophomore outside hitter Karlee Riggs blasted 25 kills and contributed eight digs to pace the winners (4-0)

Now that the Orange Coast College football team has established itself as one of the top teams in Southern California with a victory over Palomar Saturday, the Pirates face a new type of competition. As the No. 6-ranked team in Southern California, opponents now draw motivation from the chance to knock the Pirates (3-0 for the first time since 1991) from their short-lived pedestal. No. 20-ranked Pasadena (2-1) is the first in line to do just that. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. today at OCC. Pirates' Coach Mike Taylor knows the motivation for his team will not come as easily as it did against Palomar, which held a five-game winning streak over Orange Coast prior to Saturday.

The letters across the Pasadena Poly boys' soccer team's warmup tops spelled out Polytechnic Soccer. Pyrotechnic Soccer might have been more fitting on Tuesday, when the visiting Panthers exploded for two goals in the first eight minutes and went on to record a 4-0 victory over Sage Hill in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 6 playoffs. The four goals were double the previous best output by a Sage Hill opponent this season and represented more than 50% of the total tallies (seven)

COSTA MESA - A week after losing three leads and falling in triple overtime in its season opener at Moorpark, the Orange Coast College football team tried coming from behind in its first home contest on Saturday against Pasadena City College. The result, while equally dramatic, was much more successful this time for OCC, which rallied behind sophomore backup quarterback Jon Newsom to claim a 27-23 victory over the Lancers. Newsom threw three touchdown passes to help the Pirates overcome a 17-0 deficit and take a 21-17 lead early in the fourth quarter.

Chase Wheatley, a Corona del Mar High senior, did his best to play smart at the CIF Southern Section Individual Final Championship at La Purisima Golf Course in Lompoc Monday. The wind only created a more challenging round on the tricky course. But Wheatley continually tried to stick to a conservative game plan in his attempt to advance. Wheatley, just as he did last week, didn't have a great start. But he finished strong. He shot four-over-par 76 and was among the top 28 to advance to the CIF/SCGA Regional Qualifier at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena May 30. He is one step away from the state tournament.

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.
