Peirsol, the former Newport Harbor High star, was forced to settle for the silver medal, as he finished second in the 200-meter backstroke behind fellow American Ryan Lochte, who touched the wall in 1 minute, 53.94 seconds and lowered the world record he had shared with the runner-up. Peirsol finished in 1:54.

Jeff Powers offered it up as politely as his handshake Thursday afternoon at UC Irvine. Still shiny and new, the silver medal Powers and three former UCI products won in the Beijing Olympic Games as members of the United States men’s water polo team felt, when the latest of a string of interviewers held it, as substantial as the accomplishment itself. Powers, 28, a three-time first-team All-American at UCI from 2000 to 2002 and the Anteaters’ leading scorer in 1999 and 2000, was back at his alma mater to bask in his newfound and, some might say, surprising Olympic glory.

COSTA MESA - It was hard to find a weakness watching the College Park Elementary boys' third- and fourth-grade silver division team Saturday at the Daily Pilot Cup. College Park's opponent, Paularino, probably felt the same way. Eight different players scored for the Cougars, who earned a 9-1 triumph in the quarterfinal match at Jack Hammett Sports Complex. And that balance was exactly what College Park Coach Hernan Bottazzi liked to see. "We're not a one-star team," Bottazzi said.

Sage Hill School junior fullback Logan Cook pushed over the goal line on fourth down in the fourth overtime and the Lightning defense held visiting Silver Valley on the ensuing series to claim a dramatic 37-30 nonleague victory on Friday night. Silver Valley opened the first overtime with a touchdown, but Sage Hill answered. The two teams exchanged field goals in the second overtime, which like the NCAA format began on the opponents' 25-yard line. In the third overtime, Sage Hill forced a recovered a fumble at its own nine-yard line after a pass completion, but could not get close the ensuing series to force a fourth extra session.

COSTA MESA - The only bench the Newport Coast Elementary fifth- and sixth-grade girls' silver division soccer team had during this week's Daily Pilot Cup was the one Coach Ramzi Ammari carried to and from games over his shoulder. Ammari's two rows of five retractable plastic seats, that folded down to fit concisely in a convenient tote bag, allowed his players to rest during pregame talks, halftime adjustments and postgame breakdowns. During games, however, the seats sat empty, since all 11 players on the roster were on the field.

COSTA MESA - Newport Coast Elementary Coach Ramzi Ammari has the rarest of rosters for the fifth- and sixth-grade girls' silver division in the Daily Pilot Cup youth soccer tournament. In the Coyotes' tournament-opening 2-0 victory over Whittier on Thursday at Davis Elementary, they displayed depth, balance, passion, unselfishness and organization. But after completely dominating the pace of the game and amassing a 21-2 advantage in saves, there is at least one area of concern for Ammari as his team moves ahead: "The goalkeeper position is probably the most challenging to fill," said Ammari, who praised the heart and Johna Zahed, who made one save but faced her greatest challenge trying to stay entertained while the ball remained at the other end of the field virtually the entire game.
