est-polo-no-pool-briefThe Estancia High boys' water polo team is starting to feel like a bunch of vagabonds. Extracted from their own faulty pool this season, the Eagles had been playing their home games at Costa Mesa High. Wednesday, they found out they would have to find another site after a pump at Costa Mesa's pool broke down. The team's next stop will be Santa Ana College for today's Golden West League showdown against Costa Mesa. Estancia Coach John Carpenter said he expects the game to begin around 2:45 p.m. The pools at Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar were unavailable because the schools are hosting a freshman-sophomore tournament.

Speakers rail against CenterLine project Opponents of the CenterLine light rail system rallied against the project in Irvine Wednesday night.

SANTA ANA - The Irvine Valley College men's basketball team opened up Orange Empire Conference play Friday night against Santa Ana College, and it was a good thing the game wasn't scored on style points. Santa Ana likes to drag its opponents into the dirt and make it a scrap, and Friday's matchup certainly was grimy. Irvine Valley (14-3, 1-0 in conference) made just 16 of 56 field goal attempts (28.6%) including a dismal one for 20 from beyond the three-point line, but still managed to emerge on top with a 46-40 victory.

SANTA ANA — The Orange Coast College baseball team failed to deliver a knockout blow early and the Pirates paid for it as Santa Ana rallied from a six-run deficit to win, 8-7, on Saturday at Santa Ana College. Costly baserunning mistakes early and erratic defense late proved to be too much to overcome for the Pirates (14-13, 6-7 in the Orange Empire Conference). Santa Ana (21-7, 11-2) responded to its 6-0 deficit with three runs in the fifth, three runs in the seventh and two in the bottom of the ninth.

Talk to Richard Gomez about the sport of handball, and the information comes back at you about as fast as he hits the rubber ball off the walls on some of the handball courts at Cost Mesa High School. If anybody should know, it would be Gomez, about as fit a 50-year-old you’re ever going to find — a guy who played for Santa Ana College in the late 1970s. In charge of the high school’s campus security, Gomez, who was born and raised in Santa Ana, played the sport passionately for years before he got a job at Costa Mesa High School in the late ’90s and started organizing full-fledged student tournaments.

The last thing Kasey Peters thought he’d be coveting on fall days in Billings, Mont. is ice. But when his week-day practice regimen calls for a couple hundred spirals a day, the junior trigger man for the Rocky Mountain College football team’s spread offense said his arm can sure use any restorative measures available. “On game days, my arm is never tired, because of the adrenaline,” said Peters, a former Newport Harbor High quarterback who led the NAIA in passing entering Saturday’s home loss to defending national champion and No. 1-ranked Carroll College.

COSTA MESA — Even falling for one of the oldest tricks in the book wasn’t going to stop the Santa Ana College baseball team Thursday. Orange Coast freshman shortstop Ryan Dunn took the throw back into the infield after an eighth-inning Dons double. The umpire turned around to dust off home plate, but Dunn kept the ball, went over and tagged an unsuspecting Kyle Hardman and the hidden-ball trick was successful. “When the home-plate umpire cleans off the plate, it’s usually timeout,” Santa Ana Coach Don Sneddon said.
