MANHATTAN BEACH ? Prior to the start of the season, Hoover High girls' basketball Coach Jack Van Patten believed this year's team had the chance to do something unprecedented, considering it returned six seniors and all five starters from a playoff-tested team the season before. The coach also was well aware that a lack of height and post presence could quickly negate that leadership and limit the Tornadoes against certain opponents. The latter proved to be the case on Saturday night, as the Tornadoes ran up against a taller, more physical Mira Costa squad.

Driver Doug McNeese and setter Jordan Thompson each scored three goals for the Spartans (13-5)

What was supposed to be a hard count, turned out to be an awfully hard way to lose for the Newport Harbor High football team Friday night. But the Sailors didn't go down without first finding a miraculous way to push visiting Mira Costa into overtime as the Mustangs came away with a 23-20 nonleague triumph. Newport Harbor went 84 yards on 12 plays after falling behind, 20-12, with 3:05 left to tie the game in dramatic fashion. Tom Jackson's pass went into and out of the hands of Mira Costa defender Kevin Romero at the Mustangs' 5-yard line, and Jarrett Daniel hauled it in and ran into the end zone.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Playing tournament host as well as in its home opener, the Glendale Community College women's basketball team relied on solid defense to get in the win column for the first time of the young season. But as coach Carrie Miller showed, her players didn't really have a choice. After a sluggish start against Mira Costa in both teams' first game of the Vaquero Shootout, Miller pulled all five of her starters with just over four minutes elapsed in the first half.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - The Glendale Community College women's basketball team has lost games this season because it has either turned the ball over too many times, hasn't played well for 40 minutes or has had woes on defense. It lost Thursday partly because “it hit a wall.” The Vaqueros went five minutes without a basket in the first half of their game against visiting Mira Costa in the inaugural Christmas Crossover four-team round-robin tournament, and watched as the Spartans scored 11 unanswered points and took a nine-point lead.

It’s not clear who will succeed Van Patten, who graduated from Hoover in 1980 after playing for several seasons on the school’s boys’ basketball team.
