Roger Holmes, who spent the last four years rebuilding the Fountain Valley High boys' basketball program, has stepped down as the Barons' head coach. Holmes announced he was stepping down from his post April 24. In his four years as head coach of his alma mater, his teams posted records of 16-10, 17-10, 21-7 and his final team, a young, inexperienced and hard-working squad that endured several injuries this year, went 9-18. His 2012-13 team captured the Sunset League championship, the first league title for the program since 1995.

Huntington Beach High girls' basketball Coach Russ McClurg figured his team would face a tall order in Ventura, the Oilers' CIF Southern Section semifinal opponent Tuesday. He was right. Visiting Ventura worked its inside game and went to its veterans throughout the Division 1A showdown, and the second-seeded Cougars pulled away to score a 60-41 victory over the third-seeded Oilers. Huntington led early but the Cougars, led in the middle by 6-foot-1 senior center Cassandra McCambridge, 5-11 senior forward Marki Meyer and 5-9 senior forward Kayalin Akens-Matthews-Irby, were able to build a double-digit midway through the second quarter.

Edison got what it had hoped for Friday: a shot at first place in the Sunset League boys' basketball race. The Chargers, in fact, had three shots at a share of the league lead in the final 9.3 seconds of their showdown with Los Alamitos, but when the final buzzer sounded it was the visiting Griffins who were able to somehow survive. Two of the three shot attempts Edison got off in a wild and frantic finish at Dave Mohs Gymnasium bounced off the rim - the other was blocked - and Los Alamitos was able to escape with a 52-51 victory that would give the Griffins at least a share of the 2014 league championship.
