Steve Virgen FULLERTON - An experimentation of sorts led to a Sunny Hills Invitational cross country championship for both the boys' and girls' teams of Corona del Mar on Saturday at Clark Regional Park in Fullerton. CdM Coach Bill Sumner said that he tried a new strategy for the competition that involved an aggressive kick from the start and maintaining a quicker-than-usual pace throughout the course. "We're kicking up the ante," said Sumner of his team's gamble to try something new. Sumner said that the team's different approach was a bit risky but resulted in a second straight Sunny Hills Invitational title for the girls, which included top overall finisher senior Diana Hossfeld.

FULLERTON — Dusk was rapidly encroaching on a wild-card game at Sunny Hills High Wednesday, but Alex Burtea effectively killed whatever threat it posed. Burtea, a junior forward for Sunny Hills, kicked the game-winning goal in sudden-death overtime, shutting out Corona del Mar after 64 minutes of play. The Lancers advanced to the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs, while the Sea Kings’ season ended at 5-9-3. As the game’s second overtime expired, parents on the sideline started to murmur about what would happen if no one scored and it was too dark to play, since the Lancers have no lights.

They've seen the photos and Olympic medals, but Kevin Robertson's two boys probably won't fully appreciate their father's efforts until they watch next year's Olympic Games on television. Alan, 7, and Chris, 5, are old enough now to play their own sports, and, to a degree, understand what winning and losing means. "It'll be fun," Robertson said, referring to those upcoming golden moments with his sons, when he can share his Olympic experiences between commercials during NBC's coverage of the 2000 Summer Games at Sydney, Australia.

ORANGE — The rain from the night before ruined the toughest part of the three-mile course at Irvine Regional Park. By the time the 41st annual Orange County Championships began early Saturday morning, the hill at the end of the first mile was determined too dangerous, too slick for runners to climb and go down. So no one ran the not-too-steep hill, but without it the course became shorter, faster. Some coaches argued to find a way to keep it at three miles, instead of the 2.7-or-so distance.
