Home goods retailer Linens ‘n Things, which went into bankruptcy protection in May, plans to shutter its Metro Pointe store in Costa Mesa as part of a new round of closures.

The company originally planned to shut down 87 stores in its second wave of closures. Three other Orange County locations began liquidation sales in May. The Fullerton, Tustin and Rancho Santa Margarita stores were some of the worst underperformers in the company, and were among 120 stores on the original chopping block.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - The final tiebreaker ended quickly, maybe a little bit too quickly for Corona del Mar High freshman Jasie Dunk on Wednesday at Santa Margarita High. Dunk and her sophomore partner, Siena Sharf, edged out a 7-6 (8-6) victory over Maddie Gehrich and Alexis Coglitore of Santa Margarita. The tiebreaker and set were over on a winning volley by Sharf, much to the surprise of Dunk. "Yeah, I thought we were going to 10 [points]," Dunk said with a laugh after the match.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - They came, they saw and they conquered. In the process, members of the CdM Aquatics 18-and-under girls' team won gold medals. Nobody could stop CdM in the classic division at the USA Water Polo Junior Olympics. CdM finished it off Sunday at Santa Margarita High, topping Elite of Murrieta, 10-6, in the gold-medal game. The program seems to have shrugged off a disappointing result at Junior Olympics qualifying, which left CdM in the classic division instead of the championship division.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - The Newport Harbor High girls' water polo team had to put up with the elements on a rainy and foggy Saturday afternoon at Santa Margarita High. Putting up with Santa Margarita senior center Emily Loughlin, who plays on the U.S. women's youth national team, is more difficult. Loughlin was constantly double-teamed by Newport senior Avery Peterson and sophomore Rachel Whitelegge. The Sailors also ran a drop defense on her. "[Loughlin] is so strong that you've got to drop from the outside and hope that their outside shooters don't have a good day," Coach Bill Barnett said.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - The Newport Harbor High girls' volleyball team played inside a gym Tuesday that felt more like a sauna.

Coach Dan Glenn applauded his team's effort, which resulted in a second straight set win against a top-10 opponent in six days.

While many films show what a dose of good luck can do for someone, "The High Cost of Living" reveals how a matter of seconds can change the course of someone's life indefinitely and not always for the better. Starring Zach Braff and Isabelle Blais, the Newport Beach Film Festival flick examines how two lives that would have never intersected in normal circumstances become inextricably intertwined after a car accident. It's the first film by director Deborah Chow, who received high marks at the Toronto International Film Festival, winning Best Canadian First Feature.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA — Maddie Schwartz made her return to game action Thursday for the Corona del Mar High girls' water polo team. It turned out to be great timing for the Sea Kings. They definitely needed their senior captain — and every single one of their other players, for that matter — to hold off Santa Margarita, 10-9, in a wild nonleague game at Santa Margarita. The San Diego State-bound Schwartz hadn't played in nearly a month, after suffering a broken right index finger in practice Jan. 4. She said she's built up her rehabilitation, from swimming with her left arm to swimming with both arms and, more recently, shooting again.
