    Baseball: Empire League settled

    May 15th, 2015, 8:04 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    Valencia beat Pacifica, 8-1, Friday to capture the Empire League's third and final playoff berth.

    Valencia and Pacifica finished the regular-season with 5-5 league records.

    The first tiebreaker criteria in the Empire League is head-to-head results; Valencia and Pacifica split their two league matchups.

    The next tiebreaker is how teams did against the league champion. Pacifica lost its two games against league champ Cypress. Valencia went 1-1 against Cypress, handing Cypress its only league loss.

    Valencia is the league's No. 3 representative in the CIF-Southern Section Division 1 playoffs. Cypress is No. 1. Tustin is No. 2 (Tillers coach Charles Chatman will be considered for O.C. baseball coach of the year).

    Baseball: Some games with big implications

    May 14th, 2015, 12:32 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    There are a few playoff berths to be settled. A look at a couple of leagues ...

    Empire -- Cypress is the league champion and will go to the Division 1 playoffs as the league's No. 1 playoff representative. If today Pacifica (6-3 in league) beats Valencia (5-4), Pacifica is the league's No. 3 team -- the league's final playoff berth. If Valencia beats Pacifica, they both finish 6-4 in league. The first tiebreaker is how those teams did vs. the league champion. Valencia was 1-1 vs. Cypress, Pacifica was 0-2. So, a Valencia win today gives the Tigers the No. 3 spot. Tustin is going to the playoffs, but whether as a No. 2 or No. 3 is to be determined.

    Note: Valencia-Pacifica rained out; awaiting rescheduling information.

    Trinity League -- JSerra and Orange Lutheran are 1-2, respectively. Up for grabs between Mater Dei (7-7 in league) and Santa Margarita (6-8) is the No. 3 berth, the final playoff berth in the Trinity League. If Mater Dei beats Servite today, then Mater Dei is the league's No. 3 team. If Santa Margarita beats JSerra and Mater Dei loses, then Santa Margarita and Mater Dei finish at 7-8 each. As Santa Margarita won two of three against Mater Dei, Santa Margarita would go as the No. 3 team.

    Note: Servite at Mater Dei has been rescheduled for Friday, 6 p.m., at Mater Dei. JSerra at Santa Margarita was moved to a Saturday, 9 a.m. start.

    Esperanza investigating possible racial slurs

    February 2nd, 2015, 12:25 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    Esperanza High is investigating allegations that racial slurs were directed by Esperanza students toward Foothill boys basketball player Reed Nakakihara during a game Friday night at Esperanza.

    Chants of "Jackie Chan" and "chicken fried rice" were said to have been come from the Esperanza student section and directed at Nakakihara, who is of Asian background.

    Esperanza principal Dr. Ken Fox said the school was looking into matter Monday and would announce its conclusion Tuesday.

    "This is unacceptable and we're embarassed," Fox said Monday.

    Earlier in January, Foothill issued an apology to Tustin High students and parents for the action of one or two students who held up a sign with a deragatory Spanish slur on it during a Tustin-Foothill boys basketball game.

    February 2nd, 2015, 10:38 am by By STEVE FRYER

    How I voted on the Orange County boys basketball top 10 today (I am one of five voters on The Registe Media Poll panel) ...

    1. Mater Dei (19-3 overall record); 2. Orange Lutheran (19-3);3. Sonora (19-3); 4. Santa Margarita (14-5); 5. Tustin (20-2); 6. Foothill (19-3); 7. Edison (18-5); 8. Los Alamitos (19-2); 9. Canyon (15-7); 10. Esperanza (18-5).

    Santa Margarita lost twice last week, but both losses were to good Trinity League teams -- Mater Dei and St. John Bosco.

    Tustin beat Foothill, so the Tillers get No. 5. Maybe Esperanza is better than Canyon; we will find out Tuesday when Esperanza plays at Canyon.

    Basketball: Fryer's top 10 vote

    January 19th, 2015, 12:35 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    How I voted in the Orange County Register media poll for the county boys basketball top 10:

    1. Mater Dei; 2. Santa Margarita; 3. Orange Lutheran; 4. Sonora; 5. Tustin; 6. Foothill; 7. Los Alamitos; 8. Canyon; 9. Edison; 10. Esperanza.

    Santa Margarita played Mater Dei closer than Orange Lutheran did. ... Canyon beat Los Alamitos in December, but Los Al might be playing better right now ... Really, though, teams 4-8 are very close, and Edison and Esperanza are so close to being in that group, too.
