UC Irvine senior middle blocker Kyle Weichert has been chosen the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men's National Player of the Week. Weichert recorded 10 kills with zero errors on 14 attempts for a .714 hitting effort in a win over UC Santa Barbara, the 12th-best mark in Anteater history. He added four digs, three assists and one ace against the Gauchos. Weichert followed that outing with 11 kills and five blocks against Cal State Northridge. With four block assists against the Matadors, Weichert became the UCI career leader with 373. He has also set the single-season record for block assists this year with 152, before Saturday's Mountain Pacific Sports Federation quarterfinal loss at BYU. Weichert averaged 3.25 points, 2.62 kills and 0.88 blocks, while hitting at a .576 clip (21 kills with two errors in 33 attempts)

I was so glad to read that the Costa Mesa Animal Control Department is now logging reports of coyote. I also hope records of activities and attacks will be kept. I am a Mesa Verde resident whose cat has disappeared. When our pet of 14 years did not come home on June 6, I called Animal Control to get some information and some help locating him. After several conversations, I learned a lot about coyotes, limited budgets and public servants' priorities.

Tony Altobelli It's such a mean game Estancia High track and field standout Liz Huipe plays on the rest of the competitors during a track meet, especially the 3,200-meter run. Huipe likes to hang out in the middle of the pack, trying to pick just the right time to make her move and dash the hopes out of the rest of the runners. "Some people go out way fast and by the time a mile as passed, they are already slowing down," Huipe said. "I like to take it kind of easy to start and then pick it up in the later laps."

IRVINE — Even though Kyle Necke got the final two outs to record the save, UC Irvine starting pitcher Christian Bergman showed again Saturday why he is earning a reputation as a dependable finisher for the Anteaters’ baseball team. On the heels of a one-hit shutout in which he retired 26 consecutive hitters and faced the minimum 27 on April 22 at UC Davis, Bergman retired the final 15 Cal State Bakersfield hitters he faced to earn the victory in a 3-2 nonconference triumph at Anteater Ballpark.

IRVINE — With 12:49 left in the game, a brief physical skirmish broke out between players from both teams that resulted in a pair of technical fouls. But for the UC Irvine men’s basketball program, which had lost four straight and seven of its last eight, including a 13-point nonconference setback at Cal State Bakersfield Wednesday, push had come to shove well before tipoff of Saturday’s rematch with the Roadrunners at the Bren Events Center. The result was an inspired effort that produced a 76-63 triumph for the Anteaters.

Rick Devereux One aspect of coaching is evaluating what your team's weaknesses are in order to predict what your opponent will try to exploit. For Craig Fertig and the rest of his Estancia High coaching staff, the opponent's strategy has been clear: run the ball. When opponents rush for more than 200 yards, the Eagles lose. When opponents are held to fewer than 200 rushing yards, the Eagles win. Estancia (3-4, 1-2 in the Golden West League) faces Saddleback (4-3, 2-2)

A group of students with leather helmets, shoulder pads, cleats and a football took the field one Friday afternoon in October of 1931 behind the leadership of Coach Ralph Reed, and when the dust had cleared they had come up short, 7-0, to Orange High. The Newport Harbor Sailors would score two touchdowns that year en route to a 2-4 record with both victories over tiny Capistrano High. A year later they would score two more touchdowns, but end up winless in six starts. It would be 12 years before the legendary Hal Sheflin led the Sailors to their storied appearance in the CIF Playoffs against La Verne Bonita in 1942, led by future three-time All-American and Heisman Trophy winner Glenn Davis when at West Point.
