Notebook: Huntington Beach looks to set national record


The Huntington Beach boys volleyball team has a chance tonight to set a national record for consecutive wins.

The top-ranked Oilers, who will be at Servite for a nonleague match, has won 112 matches in a row, which is tied for the record with Salem of New Hampshire.

Hungtington Beach’s last loss came against San Clemente in the Orange County Championships on March 18, 2013.

Tonight’s match starts at 5:45.

If the Oilers win tonight, their streak will be tested this weekend at the Best of the West Invitational in San Diego.



Abram Booty resigned as football coach at Sage Hill, the school announced Monday.

Booty coached Sage Hill for only the 2015 season. The Lightning finished 2-8 overall and 0-3 in the Academy League.

Sage Hill athletic director Megan Cid also said Sage Hill will pursue fielding an 8-man team for the 2016 season.

“We looked at the current roster of players and the number of potential incoming players next year,” she said. “We decided we won't have sufficient numbers to safely play 11-man football.”

Cid said Sage Hill might join an 8-man league or would play a freelance schedule in ‘16.

Sage Hill's departure leaves the Academy League with three members for 11-man football: Brethren Christian, Crean Lutheran and St. Margaret’s.



In an early-season match-up between the top two teams in the county, Foothill edged defending champions St. Margaret’s, 12-10, Saturday in the Orange County Invitational.

Foothill junior George Dalis scored a pair of goals and recovered five grounds balls.

Foothill goalie Ryan Blank made eight saves in the third quarter. He finished with 15.



Calvary Chapel’s fifth-place finish at the CIF State Wrestling Tournament was the best by a county school since 2009 (Calvary Chapel).

The 97.5 points scored by the team is the most by any county team since 2003.

This was the first time since 2004 that Calvary Chapel had four state medalists.

“The goal was to be top five in the state,” Calvary Chapel coach Sal Garcia said. “It is a good accomplishment for our team and something we want to build off of for the future.

“We had four state placers and it has been awhile since Calvary has had four state placers. This is something we’re just going to build on and have as a goal every year.”
