COSTA MESA - The Arizona Wildcats, little baseball players ranging from ages 6-8, didn't appear to be nervous during their meaningful game Thursday at TeWinkle Intermediate. The Wildcats were one of a handful of Costa Mesa National Little League teams playing with a lot on the line at the school. The Wildcats needed to win in the CMNLL Farm Division double-elimination tournament to force a final. And win they did. They played one of their better games of the season to upend the USC Trojans, 22-4.

Last week felt vaguely like a scene from a Tale of Two Cities. In one city, men and women leapt up and down, cries of elation rang through office hallways and cellphones chimed repeatedly with the first notes of the USC Trojans fight song. The Trojans had won football's national championship, and in Newport-Mesa -- a.k.a. SC South -- there was joy and there was more joy. Heck, there was even more joy than that. After all, you can't turn your head in most parts of the community without seeing a USC flag waving cardinal and gold above a front door.

- In the heat of Gordon Adams' first game as starting quarterback for Coach John Robinson's USC Trojans, there were 95,049 screaming Tennessee fans rooting against him. And, with only 10 seconds left and the Trojans at midfield in a tie game, they called timeout and Adams approached the sidelines. Expecting a play call from Robinson in a tense moment to open the 1980 college football season, Adams instead remembers Robinson saying: "Isn't this great?

Don Cantrell Almost five decades have passed since the days of Eugene (Gino) Boero and the Newport Harbor High Sailors and yet he remains one of the all-time favorites from the ranks of the Bluejackets. Some have reflected back and consider Boero as the original "refrigerator," long before the grid world ever heard of William Perry. Boero first came to Harbor High football in 1949 as a 15-year-old sophomore guard weighing 240 pounds. He was born in Italy and found his dad, "Papa Gino," prompting him to start baking exquisite bread when he was 9 years old. Even as a sophomore, Boero was solid as a rock and rivals were often stressed out trying to move him off the forward wall.

The UC Irvine men's volleyball team will enjoy an exciting week in its schedule as the Anteaters play host to Pepperdine on Wednesday and the highly regarded USC Trojans on Friday night. Both matches are at 7 p.m. at the Bren Events Center. This is an opportunity to watch the talented UCI men's team (5-2, 1-2 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation), ranked No. 2 in the nation, and two high-ranked teams. Pepperdine, ranked No. 6, and fifth-ranked USC always are the biggest draws when they play at UCI. Pepperdine is 5-1 and 4-0 in MPSF play.

Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - Like Horatio Alger stories, the classics of rags to riches, the Orange Coast College football team has risen from the depths of mediocrity ... at least that is how it appears on paper. In his third year as head coach of the Pirates, Mike Taylor and his staff have completed the best recruiting class in his tenure, and one of the best of his 16 years on staff. The most notable recruit came after the first day of classes began at OCC. Marvin Simmons, a 2000 Parade All-American linebacker out of Long Beach Poly High, bounced back to the Bucs after the NCAA ended an investagation into his SAT scores and ruled that Simmons could not play for the USC Trojans.

The UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans are gearing up for a huge battle Saturday. And as many in Orange County are aware, the county is SC fan territory. But the Bruins refuse to sit on the sidelines in this crosstown rivalry. So in the name of healthy competition, Costa Mesa Councilwoman Katrina Foley, a UCLA alumna and a devout Bruins fan, helped her two young boys and their friends get back at their music teacher. Nick St. Royal, Sonora Elementary School’s music teacher and band director, is a die-hard Trojan fan. Foley said that on the first day of class, St. Royal told his students: “I graduated from the greatest university on the planet, do you know which one that is?

Barry Faulkner Parker Collins has neither sought nor discovered the key to the conscious mind some use to lock out distractions during competition. As such, the former Corona del Mar High tennis standout, now a senior on the No. 3-ranked USC Trojans, absorbs, perhaps even attracts, every element of oppressive atmosphere that can envelope a match. In a sport where ego can fend off opponents as effectively as polished ground strokes, Collins often spends changeovers volleying with self-doubt.

Bruins fans didn't have much to cheer about, but NewportMesa saw plenty of friendly rivalry.A sold out crowd filled the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday as the No. 1 USC Trojans battled for Rose Bowl rights and a win against No. 12 UCLA. But 40 miles south, in bars across Newport Beach and Costa Mesa, the fighting spirit was just as strong. For the Rather family of Costa Mesa, Saturday's big game was an in-house rivalry. Tamara Rather, 21, is a senior at UCLA and her brother, Tyler Rather, 24, is in graduate school at USC. For the first time, the entire family watched the game together at Skosh Monahan's in Costa Mesa.

When Kaleigh Gilchrist went to Salt Creek on Monday she aimed for a rare feat: to become a national champion in two sports in the same year. As the waves crashed, and she mastered each set to reach the National Scholastic Surfing Assn. finals she grew excited to reach her goal. She scored a 7.5 in her first set in the finals. She said she wanted a good score as a back-up. She went out with a bang. She scored a 9.4 to "seal the deal," she said Tuesday. Gilchrist, a former Newport Harbor High standout who won an NCAA title with the USC women's water polo team last month, captured the NSSA college women's championship.

Death was but a few moments from Pete Statti as he lay face down in the water in Huntington Beach three months ago when he experienced a life-altering surfing accident. Angels must've been watching over him, he now thinks, as a fellow surfer turned him over which helped him to regain air. Approaching so close to non-existence, but surviving, has been a cause for such a positive attitude now amid pain from rehabilitation to overcome back injuries. In addition, the USC Trojans, of the Costa Mesa National Little League Farm Division, have been a source of strength.

Chili Billies, sunflower seeds and after-the-game pizza parties … what do these all have to do with golf? Nothing. But consider John Gilchrist and the connection is visible between Little League and that game of 18 holes, varied clubs and a small white ball. Baseball — or rather Gilchrist's son, Jack, and his team — is somehow a reason why Gilchrist will be playing the game of golf — specifically the Jones Cup — on Sept. 6 at Big Canyon Country Club.

ROGER CARLSON At what instant is it that one becomes a lifelong fan of the Dodgers or Angels, or in this case, the USC Trojans' football team? For myself it came at the age of 9 when my brother let me know the Trojans would be on the radio in the Rose Bowl against Alabama on New Year's Day in 1946. Our eyes were glued to the dial and you could hear a pin drop as we listened, alas to no avail, as the Tide rolled, 34-14, snapping USC's undefeated streak in the Rose Bowl for a span of eight games.
