Members of the Costa Mesa High boys' basketball team tied a program record this year with 19 wins. They also won the Battle of the Bell series against cross-town rival Estancia for the third straight year. What they weren't able to do prior to Wednesday night's CIF Southern Section Division 4AA first-round playoff game, though, was grow several inches each. Visiting Harvard-Westlake had a size advantage, and the No. 8-seeded Wolverines exploited it on their way to a 64-48 victory that ended Costa Mesa's season.

Two months ago, Estancia High was one of the host sites of the North Orange County Classic. One of the schools in the boys' soccer tournament was Pomona Diamond Ranch. The two programs didn't play each other at Jim Scott Stadium because they played in different divisions. They finally squared off on Tuesday, at the start of another tournament. The winner kept playing and the loser went home for good in this tournament. The Eagles played host and they stayed alive by beating Diamond Ranch, 2-0, in the wild-card round of the CIF Southern Section Division 5 playoffs.

The Los Alamitos High girls' water polo team seemed to be full of surprises Wednesday night. Coach Dave Carlson surprised some at the game, publicly saying for the first time that he plans to step down as Griffins girls' coach after 15 years. In the water, the Griffins also surprised host Newport Harbor by staying in a hard press defense virtually the whole time. And Los Alamitos used it to produce another surprise, a 6-5 upset victory that gives the Griffins their first Sunset League title in three seasons.

At this point in the football season, 18 weeks in, Corona del Mar High has shortened its practices. The Sea Kings have entered unchartered territory this late in the year, yet there is no need for long, grueling practices. "If we can't tackle, throw or catch right now, we've got issues," CdM Coach Scott Meyer says. "I think having that bye week early in the season, before [opening Pacific Coast League play on Oct. 11], kind of gave us all a good break to catch our breath a little bit. " Since that week off two months ago, the Sea Kings continued their perfect season, never losing in the next nine games.
