Well, I survived another Coachella Music Festival. My son, Jeff, got me started at Coachella five years ago, and I have been hooked ever since. The average age of the kids at Coachella is probably in the mid-20s. At my present age of 62, I have gotten used to the idea of being the oldest guy at the festival, and I take pride in that distinction. The kids at Coachella already know most of the groups that are playing, and most of their music. They go to hear their favorites.

After a 13-7 loss to UC Santa Barbara on April 3, the UC Irvine women’s water polo team was 9-13 and 0-2 in the Big West Conference. Few knew, however, the Anteaters were right where they wanted to be. Coach Dan Klatt’s team proved just that, however, winning six of its final seven games, including three over the weekend to repeat as Big West tournament champions. UCI, the No. 4 seed, knocked off top-seeded Pacific, 10-7, in Saturday’s semifinals, then topped No. 2-seeded Cal State Northridge, 12-11, in Sunday’s title game.

Tony Altobelli Only a sophomore like two-meter player Artie Dorr could best describe the moments just prior to Corona del Mar's win over Newport Harbor, 12-11, in the finals of the S&R Sport Water Polo Cup championship final last Saturday at Heritage Park in Irvine. With only seconds remaining and Sailors' senior Caine Littrell was one-on-one with sophomore goalie Beau Stockstill. Stockstill slapped away Littrell's lob shot and the Sea Kings were victorious.

The UC Irvine men's soccer team felt a different sort of regret after losing, 2-1, to visiting San Diego Wednesday night. Sure, the Anteaters had several chances to upset the No. 14 Toreros (8-1-0), who scored the game-winner with 13 minutes left. But the 'Eaters (4-3-1) were also thinking what if because they had so many players out with injuries. What if, as in what if Brad Aspey, Jesse Peron and Sebastian Galmarini had played? What if Anthony Vizcarra played at full strength?

With a penchant for planning and redshirting talented, sometimes experienced players, UC Irvine men’s water polo coach Marc Hunt admittedly views the pool as a vast caldron of personnel stew. “You’ve got to have a five-year plan,” said Hunt, who picked up his philosophy from legendary predecessor Ted Newland. That long-range foresight crystallized more concisely after the 2007 team reached the final of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. And, decisions were made to endure a modest 2008 in hopes of building something special for this season.
