The word "rebuilding" commonly has a negative connotation attached to it, but first-year Costa Mesa High boys cross country coach Daniel Gonzalez doesn't see it that way. He sees both what the future holds for his team and the present. And a successful future means a successful present. "We have a very young but talented team," said Gonzalez, who was named both the girls and boys coach at Costa Mesa in May. "We need to have big success this year for bigger goals for the following year."

Out of the 25 girls in the Costa Mesa High girls golf program, 18 have never touched a golf club before. So first-year coach Tom Baldwin, who is serving as the head girls golf coach for the first time after being the school's football coach last year, has his work cut out for him. Baldwin enlisted former coach and old friend John Clurry as his assistant. "I don't expect to win it all, but I don't expect to come in last," said Clury. Clury met Baldwin when he was 10 years old and played football for him at Santa Ana Valley High.

Later in the first period, Thorsness added two additional goals. Santa Ana, down 4-0, scored its first goal at 1:45.

In the freshman Battle for the Bell, one side rang proudly and loudly; the other side, more of an awkward clang. Costa Mesa High's tandem of Tony Johnson and Dakota Lambert accounted for six Mustang scores and dominated the field in Thursday's 48-6 Golden West League opener over Estancia. Johnson, the Mustang quarterback, scored on runs of 42 and 19 yards and completed his only pass 62 yards for a score in the third quarter. Lambert scored on two runs of 2 yards each, and returned a punt 75 yards to tally 18 of Mesa's points.

The early season struggles of football teams from Costa Mesa High and Estancia have mirrored one another. So, as the two crosstown and Golden West League rivals prepare to collide Friday at 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College, the only mirror either is interested in is the one that reflects a rear view. "Somebody has got to win," Estancia Coach Brian Barnes said of the 39th edition of the Battle for the Bell. Costa Mesa, which has seen its top two quarterbacks and a returning all-league tailback go down with injuries, enters the league opener 0-4. The Mustangs have lost six straight, including an 18-13 setback to Estancia in the regular-season finale last fall.
