Giving Estancia/Costa Mesa High School Stadium a name will likely have to wait after community leaders debated their options Tuesday night. The school board makes the final decision, but first an ad hoc committee of community leaders has been set up to discuss names. They will forward a recommendation to the school board. The first proposal asked to name the stadium Jim Scott Sr. stadium and the team room after former Estancia football player Brian “Bubba” Kapko.

Community members will have until Thursday to name the new stadium for Estancia and Costa Mesa high schools. Name suggestions or feedback can be sent to Tom Antal, proposal review committee chairman, at tantal@nmusd.us . The committee will reconvene at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Newport-Mesa Unified School District Education Center boardroom to discuss the proposals. The review process was pushed back after a change in policy to allow buildings to be named after both living and deceased individuals.

The story about a new football stadium at Corona del Mar High is not a new one. But the plans were officially revealed at the Newport-Mesa Unified School Board meeting Tuesday night. They were presented with flair, aggressiveness and organization. What else would you expect from the school's legendary cross-country coach, Bill Sumner? He waited patiently during other items on the agenda. Then came his time during the community input portion of the meeting. Sumner had but three minutes to present his plan.

The school board this week took the first official step toward building a new stadium at Corona del Mar High School, but proponents hope it won't cost the Newport-Mesa Unified School District a dime. A month earlier, on Nov. 13, CdM track coach Bill Sumner made his case before the board. He proposed a new privately funded stadium complete with a nine-lane track, synthetic field turf and seats for 1,500. He didn't want money from the school board, just their approval, so he handed over a $15,000 check with a string attached.

Residents living near Corona del Mar High School are becoming increasingly concerned about the effects a newly funded school stadium could have on their quality of life. Increased traffic, parking issues, trash, lighting and vandalism were a few issues discussed last month during a meeting of about 60 residents from the Eastbluff, the Bluffs and the Plaza communities that border the high school, said resident Diana Blaisure. "Because there's such a close proximity of the residences to the school site, there's a definite concern that the stadium is going to have a very negative impact on the community," she said.

Online registration has opened for a community run in April that will serve as the inaugural event at Estancia High School’s new stadium, the first project to be finished under the Measure F school bond. The stadium, which broke ground early last year, is set to be dedicated April 25. The following morning, the Newport-Mesa Unified School District plans to hold a community run that begins and ends in the stadium and passes through neighboring Fairview Park. In addition to a pancake breakfast and a health fair, the program includes three different runs: a five-kilometer dash, a two-kilometer run and another five-kilometer run for teams of three or more.

Mark January as a very important month in the history of the Newport-Mesa community. In just a few weeks, Estancia High School is set to break ground on a long-planned and even longer hoped-for multi-sports stadium. The stadium will be the first project built as part of last year's $282-million Measure F bond. Also in the first round of building as part of an initial $75 million in bond money are a gymnasium at TeWinkle Middle School and a new Robins Hall at Newport Harbor High. But the stadium at Estancia is the big news this week.

COSTA MESA — Hundreds gathered Thursday morning to cheer on the groundbreaking of a stadium at Estancia High School. At a ceremony held on Estancia's football practice field, Costa Mesa Mayor Allan Mansoor, Newport-Mesa Unified School District Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard, school board members and others wore hardhats and dug gold-painted shovels into a sandbox on the 50-yard line. The groundbreaking represented the first project of Measure F, the $282-million bond that voters approved in 2005.

The Irvine Unified School District and a local community group have settled a lawsuit over the district's plans to build a second stadium, paving the way for construction of the long-anticipated facility at University High School, according to a news release issued by the district Friday. Under the terms of the agreement reached Thursday between the school district and the group known as Responsible Land Use First, a stadium advisory committee will be established to generate input from community members and other district stakeholders.

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District wants to build a sports stadium with 1,000 seats, a synthetic turf field and a new track at Corona del Mar High School. An augmentation includes 1,500 stadium-style seats, field lights, a press box, snack bars and team rooms. This stadium would be in the middle of a calm residential community of more than 1,500 homes and would cause huge problems for the residents. I'm thinking of added traffic, parking and safety issues, excessive noise and blinding lights.

As coach of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse program, G.W. Mix doesn't get to see his two sons play in college often. He's too busy coaching, while Ryan Mix and Casey Mix are away competing. Ryan plays for the University of Notre Dame and Casey for UC Santa Barbara. Mix's boys are coming home this week and he will get to see them play in person. Dad came up with a great idea: create a college lacrosse exhibition in Orange County and invite the teams his sons play on. The event, which looks to promote lacrosse in California, took several years to pull off. The schedules worked out for all parties involved.

Is it Anaheim or Tustin for the Angels? The mayor of Tustin does not believe that. It has been only a week since Angels owner Arte  Moreno met with Tustin  officials about the possibility of moving his team there, and yet Tustin Mayor Al Murray said late Tuesday he had heard that Moreno had talked with the city of Irvine as well. There have been no discussions between the Angels and Irvine, representatives for both sides said Wednesday. "The Angels have not met with the city of Irvine at this time," Angels spokeswoman Marie Garvey said.

Brandi White seems to keep spraining her ankle on the soccer field. She has tweaked it three times this season. The last time was two days before Estancia High returned from the holiday break. She went down during an alumni match on Jan. 4. Coach Jessica Perry tried to keep her talented sophomore off her feet during the last 10 days. Perry let White return to action on Tuesday. White ended up helping the Eagles get off on the right foot in Orange Coast League play. She used the foot that's right to produce two goals, lifting the Eagles to a 2-0 victory against rival Costa Mesa at Jim Scott Stadium.

The home team in Friday's Battle for the Bell rivalry football game is Costa Mesa High. Playing on their rival's campus hasn't really felt like home to the Mustangs since the erection of Jim Scott Stadium five years ago. The Mustangs are the hosts in the Orange Coast League opener, yet they are the ones who will board a bus and make the 3.1-mile trip to Estancia. The route is one Costa Mesa makes for every home game. When the team arrives for the 47th edition of the Battle for the Bell, any semblance of Costa Mesa is on the field.

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District board room erupted in applause and cheering after trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to fund the stadium projects at Costa Mesa and Corona del Mar high schools. Mesa and CdM will each receive $7.4 million for their athletics facilities. Estancia High School will receive $1 million toward the planning of a competitive aquatics center. Estancia is the only high school in Newport-Mesa without a competition pool. "I have chills, I am so thrilled about this," board member Katrina Foley said.

After more than an hour of heated debate Tuesday night, Newport-Mesa school officials failed to decide how to allocate $15.8 million of one-time facilities money among the district's high schools. The Newport-Mesa Unified School District board of trustees voted 4 to 3 to postpone discussion about the funds until Nov. 1 and create an equity committee to assist the board with divvying up the the amount remaining from the original $25 million in facilities money. The trustees previously approved $9.2 million to go to Newport Harbor High School for its sports stadium.

COSTA MESA - One of Corona del Mar High's goalkeepers played for another team on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, Kat Hess was 29 miles away from the site where her high school girls' soccer team was going to play. Hess represented the U.S. under-17 women's national team in a match against Germany at the Home Depot Center. Hess' high school team could've used her in a key Pacific Coast League match against Northwood at Jim Scott Stadium. Without the standout freshman in goal, the Sea Kings gave up two goals, the most they have allowed all season in a match.
