The Ocean View High boys’ basketball team went 1-3 during summer play at the prestigious Crespi tournament over the weekend. And that’s OK with Coach Jim Harris. “No one ever asks you what your summer record is,” Harris said. But the Seahawks, who advanced to the CIF state championship game for the first time in March, did get valuable experience in the games. The CIF Southern Section Division IV-A champions defeated host Crespi of Encino but fell to Santa Margarita, Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley.

Mike Sciacca, Independent Darryl Poston's initial choice, although challenged last month by a few coaching changes, was confirmed Wednesday as he committed to play football at University of Southern California. The Edison High senior running back, the Independent's Player of the Year for the 2000 season, had tabbed USC as his first choice late last year, then reconsidered when the Trojans fired head coach Paul Hackett. While USC continued its lengthy search for a new head coach, Poston took recruiting trips to two other Pacific 10 Conference schools, reigning champion Washington and Arizona State.

Asher Saunders doesn’t quite know how he ended up where he did, but he doesn’t hesitate to give all the glory to God. The family motto tattooed to Asher’s back is a constant reminder to him of his goals. The biblical passage 2 Corinthians 4:9 reminds him that no matter what happens to him, he is not forsaken or destroyed — an important reminder to a 17-year-old wrestler who has battled academic, physical and family difficulties, yet will go to Vienna this summer to compete in the decades-old Youth Friendship Games.

It was the bottom of the sixth inning Friday, a scoreless, first-round CIF Division IV softball game between two teams, Ocean View and Bishop Montgomery, locked in a tight battle, both fighting to keep their respective seasons, as well as their title hopes, alive.
