The Orange Coast College women's volleyball team is ranked No. 8 in the state for a reason. Coach Chuck Cutenese's Pirates entered the week 6-0, having won 18 of 21 games and boasting a strong outside hitter, superb defense anchored by one of the most prolific liberos in California, two quality middle blockers, and many other characteristics of a championship contender. But after back-to-back losses within a three-day span, including a 25-17, 20-25, 25-21, 25-22 Orange Empire Conference home setback to No. 3-ranked Golden West on Friday night, Cutenese's immediate challenge is cultivating confidence.

Chris Yemma With a victory against No. 1-ranked Golden West College already under its belt, the host Orange Coast women's volleyball team came out unintimidated. And after a first-game win Wednesday evening against the visiting Rustlers, Orange Coast was still confident. But it didn't last, as Golden West won the next three to take the match 23-30, 30-22, 30-16, 30-25, in both teams' last Orange Empire Conference and regular-season match. "We showed a lot of confidence in the first game, but it didn't last," Pirates' Coach Chuck Cutenese said.

Bryce Alderton The stakes were high coming into the Orange Empire Conference women's volleyball showdown Wednesday night between visiting Golden West College and Orange Coast: No. 1 versus No. 2 in the state, two undefeated teams, one on a 19-match winning streak. That streak extended to 20 for Golden West, which has claimed the last 10 state titles and swept Orange Coast, 30-25, 30-27, 30-25, but hardly the brand of volleyball that pleased Rustler Coach Albert Gasparian, in his 21st year at the helm.

The first play from scrimmage gave an indication of what type of Saturday night it would be for Orange Coast College, and for Golden West. The Rustlers began with a trick play - a double pass - as quarterback Chris d'Entremont threw a backward pass to receiver Luke Pastell, who threw to a wide-open Nik Little for a 74-yard touchdown. It spelled doom for OCC. The Rustlers dominated on offense and defense in their 52-7 Southern Conference victory that gave them the Bell for the fourth straight year at OCC. Golden West, the home team in the 46th edition of the Battle for the Bell, used the first play from scrimmage to gain control.

The concrete quadrangle of the cramped Orange Coast College pool might have, at times, been confused with an octagon Wednesday afternoon. Both the host Pirates and Golden West College were clearly in no mood to back down in the combative Orange Empire Conference first-place showdown in men's water polo. In the end, it was the Pirates who displayed more passivity, allowing the Rustlers to prevail, 13-10.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Bullying has become a cause celebre, with stereotypical notions of intimidating actions and strong-arm tactics catching fire from society at large. But the sanctity of using physical and mental toughness as a means of showing superiority is not only protected, but celebrated in athletic competition. So it is that the Orange Coast College men's volleyball team found itself in position to look up to rival Golden West, after experiencing the equivalent of being knocked to the pavement, posterior first.

COSTA MESA - Not long after his Orange Coast College baseball team dropped a 6-2 Orange Empire Conference game to visiting Golden West on Tuesday, Pirates Coach John Altobelli said the scoreboard may have been an understatement. "It felt more like 14-2," Altobelli said of his team's first loss to the Rustlers (11-11, 4-5 in conference) in three meetings this season. But the nature of the defeat is not the only element in which perception may vary from reality in the topsy-turvy OEC race that is just past the one-third mark.

COSTA MESA - The rowdy crowd inside the Peterson Gym wasn't enough to carry the Orange Coast College women's volleyball team over the hump on Wednesday night.

COSTA MESA - The Orange Coast College football team spotted rival Golden West a 13-0 lead over just more than the first 15 minutes and couldn't recover Saturday night. One might say that the Rustlers' 23-21 victory, its third straight in the series now billed as the West Coast Showdown, left the Pirates a Penny short. Sophomore tailback Robert Penny, who came in with 1,412 career rushing yards and five games with at least 100 rushing yards this season, was limited to four carries for 16 yards and one touchdown due to what Coach Mike Taylor said was a sinus infection.
