The U-12 Slammers Maroon team finished runner-up in the prestigious Slammers Summer Classic tournament last weekend. The entire team is comprised of former Corona del Mar AYSO All-Stars that have just recently moved over to the Slammers Club soccer team. This was their second club soccer tournament. The boys played outstanding defense over the four games played. They allowed only five shots on goal and only two goals scored. In the championship game they were forced to play with no substitutes and narrowly lost 1-0 to a team from Anaheim.

Often, but even more so since my Daily Pilot commentaries began appearing, a friend will open a conversation with, "You're a runner ... " I tell myself, "OK, for the sake of this chat, I'll pretend I'm a runner. " The friend probably visualizes me running like the L.A. Marathon winner, with long graceful strides as she breaks the ribbon at the end of 26.2, doing five-minute miles. However, running down Bayside, I look more like a short-stepping elf, tripping along the bike lane.

There have been some great female runners at Newport Harbor High, such as Amber Steen, Whitney Blue, Maggie Hanson and Buffy Rabbit. The next in line appears to be Paige Tennison. She's a different type of runner for sure, one who excels in long distances. In track and field, she has become a star runner in the 3,200 meters. Tennison is a junior, so she hesitates to put herself among the school's greatest of all time. She knows she has work to do before that happens. "It would be an honor to be even considered as they are," Tennison said.

It's a moment Connor Rose attempts to put behind him each time he laces up his shoes and begins to run. The Sage Hill School junior was competing in last season's Academy League cross country finals. At the first-mile marker, the Lightning's top runner was right where he wanted to be in second place, awaiting the perfect time to pass. Then a pain started slowly in his stomach before bursting down into his legs. "Then the first guy passed me," Rose said. "Then two of my teammates passed me."

COSTA MESA - Ninety feet is how far the Estancia High baseball team was from tying the game in the bottom of the seventh inning. The go-ahead run was leaning off first base. The players knew what was at stake at home against Segerstrom on Friday, the Costa Mesa Division title of the Newport Elks Tournament. If those two runners score, the Eagles win their first Newport Elks Tournament crown in the program's history. The players had no idea they could make history, because Estancia Coach Nate Goellrich said he doesn't bring up that sort of stuff.

Melissa Mead says she likes to run. She especially enjoys longer distances. She thrives on long courses. It's as if she finds extra energy when the ground converts from pavement to grass, to dirt, to hills toward the finish line. She's also no stranger to change and transformation away from running. There were dreams of being a star runner at Iona College in New York, where she received education for her initial desired interest to become a doctor. But just as the road turns during those long distances, so did her life.

CYPRESS ? Faced with the opportunity to knock off a talented team with a postseason pedigree Saturday at Oak Knoll Park, the Newport Harbor Baseball Assn. Corona del Mar 14-year-old Pony All-Stars found themselves in a pickle. Make that two pickles. The pickles in question were initiated by two attempts to execute the same delayed double steal with runners on first and third. The first ? with Cypress All-Stars on the base paths ? resulted in a crucial run that wound up being the difference in a 3-2 Cypress victory in the championship semifinals of the District Tournament.

Cross country running is not easy. In fact, it is one of the most physically and mentally demanding sports one can find. The cross country athletes, teams and coaching staffs are usually lost amongst all the hype of the football and basketball seasons, but Woodbridge High's cross country teams have made noise, and a lot of people are taking notice. The Woodbridge girls' team, led by Nicole (Coco) Evans, qualified for the CIF state meet after finishing second in CIF Southern Section Division III Saturday at Mt. San Antonio College.

Tony Altobelli HUNTINGTON BEACH - The Costa Mesa American Little League Yankees and the Huntington Valley Angels combined for 18 strikeouts Monday in the District 62 Area 1 Tournament of Champions.

Rick Devereux The Newport Beach American Little League All-Star team had opportunities, but failed to generate results from those chances in its 4-3 loss to South Irvine in the District 55 11-year old All-Star tournament Tuesday at Bonita Canyon Sports Park. Trailing, 1-0, with runners on first and third with no outs, Brett Thompson hit a fly ball to center field. The runner on third did not tag up and attempt to score on the catch, even though the South Irvine center fielder had to dive to make the catch.

Mohamed Fadil didn't have an arrogant tone when he expressed his reaction to winning the 10th annual U.S. Bank OC Marathon in course-record breaking fashion Sunday at the finish line in Costa Mesa. He was just being honest when he said he used the race as a workout to prepare for his upcoming events. "This was a nice way to test my fitness," Fadil said. Some test. The 32-year-old, who lives in Albuquerque, NM and is originally from Morocco, finished the 26.2 miles in an unofficial 2 hours, 21 minutes, 41 seconds, coming in under the previous record of 2:22:45, set in 2011 by Peter Omae Ayieni of Kenya.

Spencer Keith used to be a serious rock climber. With no rock climbing team at Corona del Mar High, Keith ran. Three years ago, Keith joined the boys' cross-country and track and field teams at school. During the first two seasons, he still found time for his first passion. Coach Bill Sumner caught wind of the rock climbing. In the past, Sumner, in his 31st year at CdM, has had runners rock climb recreationally. Sumner, who is 66, has seen a lot during his life. Not much fazes him. When Sumner saw pictures of Keith, his jaw dropped.

A popular cycling route alongside the Upper Bay that helps connect Newport Beach to Irvine has come under scrutiny. In response to concerns from a community group about safety on Back Bay Drive, the city's Bicycle Master Plan Oversight Committee is reviewing policies regarding the road, which is used by drivers, runners and bikers. The varied types of recreation on a single-track road make for a dangerous mix, according to a letter from the Newport Bay Conservancy written to the Oversight Committee, a group charged by the City Council last year to provide a public forum on the development of suggestions for bike-related improvements in Newport.

There was a buzz at Newport Harbor High on Tuesday. The bees swarming the visiting dugout in the top of the fifth inning didn't create all of it. All the rage was the triple play Huntington Beach turned in the bottom of the fourth, helping the Oilers dodge yet another offensive threat. In the next inning, bees forced all the Oilers to drop to the ground in the dugout, and the batter on deck and the one in the batter's box. The bees appeared to have posed more of a hindrance to the Oilers than the Sailors did. No one on the Oilers' side got stung, just the Sailors when it came to their inability to produce with runners in scoring position.

Joey Martino spent his first year with the Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball team sidelined with a back brace. He wore two, a plastic one during the day and a rubber one while he slept. The devices to support his back for six months felt a little uncomfortable. Martino suffered a stress fracture in his back as an eighth-grader, a year after picking up the sport. Martino no longer has the braces, which he also credits to improving his posture. As a senior, he stands tall at 6-foot-2.

Sweaty and visibly exhausted from their mile-long run, a group of boys from Harbor View Elementary School stood in a circle showing off their newly earned participation medals. A parent walked over and high-fived each boy. Ben Schaefer, a fifth-grader at Harbor View, shared his secret for a successful run with his friends. "They tell you to jog so you won't get tired, but I always sprint," the 11-year-old said. He admits, though, that he did get the dreaded side stitch that plagues even the most experienced runner.

Remember thinking your teacher lived at school? You couldn't imagine that he or she ate, shopped or washed clothes. Sometimes I think people see runners as one-dimensional people. That's all we do, run. Friends I haven't seen in a while ask, "How's your running?" "Running?" I think, mystified. "Oh, that. " Perhaps I've been lost in thought regarding family, a book I'm reading, dinner. Running is rarely on my mind, even though I'm putting in four-hour mornings on the road.

There was a point earlier this season when Spencer Keith said he was completing nine workouts each week. There were times when the Corona del Mar High senior cross-country runner trained at 5:40 in the morning and then go at it again in the afternoon. Some people asked him if he was crazy. He said he just wanted to get stronger and make the most of his final season with the Sea Kings. "I got really tired at some points, but I had to hope it would pay off in the end," Keith said during a telephone interview Saturday.
