Carter Kimberly was, as John Fogerty sang it, a-roundin’ third and headed for home.
Then he stumbled.
Kimberly righted himself to sprint the final 85 feet and score the winning run for Yorba Linda on Brent Schuber’s two-out hit in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Mustangs beat Valencia, 4-3,
It’s not that La Habra senior Taylor Pierce is unfamiliar with life in the circle. She just hasn’t consistently had the opportunity to showcase her abilities during her first three years with the Highlanders.
Pitching behind Vanessa Ciocatto and Kayla Klein, Pierce’s primary role has been in relief
DANA POINT - After the first two sets, it appeared that it was going to be a short and frustrating night for the third-ranked San Clemente boys volleyball team.
The Tritons dropped the first two sets to 10th-ranked Dana Hills and survived match point in the fourth set, but eventually escaped with a 20-25, 25-27, 25-17, 27-25, 15-12 victo
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO – Foothill’s boys lacrosse team has had to deal with the bitter taste of a postseason loss to St. Margaret’s for the past 11 months.
So Tuesday’s result had to be a little sweet for the top-ranked Knights.
Foothill utilized a clutch fourth quarter from Warren Case to rally to an
NEWPORT BEACH - Down a goal at halftime of Tuesday afternoon's game against JSerra, Corona del Mar boys lacrosse coach G.W. Mix told his team it needed to dig a little bit deeper.
Goalie Hoyt Crance and the rest of the team got the message.
Behind 12 saves from the junior goalie, the Sea Kings knocked off the Lions,

NEWPORT BEACH – Corona del Mar has had some talented boys golf teams over the years, but it was never able to find much success outside of a CIF-SS regional tournament.
That could be about to change.
This year’s lineup is extremely deep, and Tuesday all five of the Sea Kings that figured into the final score - a 183-1
MISSION VIEJO - The encouraging shouts from coaches pierced the pool deck with more energy. The cheering from swimmers and spectators featured added enthusiasm. And the Tesoro girls and Capistrano Valley boys went above-and-beyond Tuesday to impress in the South Coast League.
Tesoro’s No. 6 girls defeated the three-time defending l
A look at Orange County baseball:
• Dana Hills coach Tom Faris knew his team would be good, but he was unsure how good, before the season began. The Dolphins are in an excellent league, the five-team Sea View League that also has Aliso Niguel and San Clemente in it. The Dolphins are ranked third in Orange County and take a 14
Rosary won a total of three Trinity League games in 2013 and finished in the middle of the always-competitive five-team league race.
This season, the Royals look like they’re peaking at the right time to make a run at their first league championship since the 2008 season.
With wins over JSerra and Mater Dei last week, Rosar
Three pitchers combined for the first no-hitter in San Juan Hills history Monday night as the Stallions defeated Redondo, 1-0, in the Ryan Lemmon Invitational.
Michael Carr (1-0), in his second start back from an Achilles' injury, threw five strong innings for the Stallions (11-7). He struck out seven and walked five.
The big mover in this week’s CIF-SS boys volleyball rankings is Esperanza.
The Aztecs, the defending Division 2 champion, were ranked fifth last week. This week, they are up to No. 2. San Marcos is ranked No. 1.
With the return of Jake Arnitz last week, the Aztecs have become the strong

A late national signing day for softball arrives Wednesday, and according to coaches, it will be just that: late.
Most of the recruits, they say, have already signed letters of intent, but that’s not where the debate lies in softball recruiting.
In a trend that concerns some coaches, softball seems to be among the sports fe
Best morning ever.
That’s how Santa Margarita sophomore quarterback KJ Costello views what happened to him Tuesday.
At about 6:30 a.m., Costello received his first scholarship offer and it came from the reigning national champion: Florida State.
“No doubt it was the best morning of my life,” he sa
ARCADIA – Competition tends to bring out the best in people.
It sure brought the best out of Mater Dei’s Curtis Godin at the 47th Arcadia Invitational track meet Saturday night at Arcadia High.
Godin edged Paul Lucas from Mountain Pointe of Arizona and ran a 10.36 to win the boys invitational 100 meters.
SANTA ANA – The Laguna Hills boys volleyball team was one step away from the title of the Foothill Varsity Classic until a Storm arrived, derailing all plans.
Lakewood’s Storm Fa’agata was unstoppable in the finals match, recording 13 kills in the first set, leading the Lancers to a 25-18, 25-22 victory over the
ALISO VIEJO – Aliso Niguel took on quite a schedule this season.
The Wolverines played in the National High School Invitational in North Carolina. They were in the Boras Classic, which is as close as there is to a state championship tournament.
And Aliso plays in the Sea View League, which has three of its five teams in the
The instant the softball beamed off of Skylar Tonumaipea’s bat in the fifth inning, all eyes darted toward Ocean View pitcher Billi Derleth.
With literally no time to react, Derleth somehow managed to get part of her glove on the hard-hit liner, preventing the laser-like shot from reaching the outfield.
ANAHEIM – The Canyon offense set the tone early in Friday’s Century League game against El Dorado.
In the first inning, the first three batters reached base. John Zanze drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly and Greg Firman followed with a two-run single.
By the time the dust had settled, the Comanc
MISSION VIEJO – Dylan Sharon was inches from wriggling his way out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the second inning. The Tesoro right-hander thought he painted the corner with an inning-ending strikeout pitch, but it was called a ball.
Capistrano Valley’s Nick Batesole capitalized, clearing the bases wit
