Halfway through the Estancia High girls cross country team's season, junior Sydney Barloon has emerged as the team's leader. Barloon leads a flock of Eagles for the 2005 season. "She will get to the CIF [Southern Section Division III] finals again," Estancia Coach Charlie Appell said. "She should also get top four in league." Barloon, who finished sixth at the Golden West League finals a little more than a year ago, clocked the top time for first place at a double-dual league meet involving Orange and Santa Ana Sept.

The Estancia High girls volleyball team hadn't beaten Costa Mesa High since Jim Huffman took over as the Eagle head coach three years ago, going 0 for 4. The current group of Estancia players had never tasted victory against Mesa. The Eagles put an end to both streaks Wednesday night with a 25-21, 25-23, 25-20 victory at Estancia High in the Golden West League opener for both schools. "It feels awesome because they are our rival school and we've always wanted to beat Mesa," junior outside hitter Jaye Hellmich said.

First-year Estancia High coach Brian Barnes, and many of his players, learned much from their varsity football debut last week. But they will have to learn about tonight's opponent, Huntington Park from the CIF Los Angeles City Section, as the game unfolds. Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College. "I haven't heard anything about them," Barnes said of the Spartans, who are opening their season after a 9-2 campaign in 2004 that included an Eastern League championship.

Coach Brian Barnes said his Estancia High football players are tired of waiting for their first victory of the season. Apparently, Buena Park, which plays host to the nonleague clash with the Eagles Friday at 7, reached that point last week. The Coyotes ended their 15-game losing streak with a 7-6 double-overtime triumph over Century in their opener Friday night. Though the Estancia losing streak spans only the first two games of this season, Barnes believes it needs to be brought to a halt.

The Estancia High football team is averaging roughly the width of the football each time it runs this season. Indeed, 47 rushing yards on 113 carries, five inches per attempt, is hardly a foundation on which to construct a winning season. But the Eagles are coming off consecutive games with positive rushing yards and first-year Coach Brian Barnes said progress is better than the alternative when it comes to forging some semblance of a running game.

Estancia High senior Ryan Watson spent so much of himself during the Eagles' 20-14 football win over rival Costa Mesa in the annual Battle for the Bell Friday night, he almost had nothing left for the celebration. Watson, who starred on offense, defense and special teams, most notably at quarterback for the Eagles, bailed on the bus ride back to campus from Orange Coast College, following the hard-fought win. It seems that after throwing for two touchdowns, running for another, completing a two-point conversion pass, playing most of the game in the secondary and even recovering a Costa Mesa onside kick, what Watson needed most was a cold shower.

Orange High's Daniel Chairez found the end zone in the first quarter, the first quarter again, in the second quarter ... you get the picture. Estancia's football team fell to CIF Southern Section Division VII No. 4 Orange on Friday, 50-6, in a Golden West League game at El Modena. The loss was Estancia's fifth straight loss to the Pirates. Both teams struggled early in the game. The Eagles and the Pirates traded punts, before Orange's first substantial drive.

The Estancia High football team pulled out all the stops to lead for most of the first half of Thursday's nonleague clash with Garden Grove at Newport Harbor High. But the Eagles couldn't come up with any many defensive stops the final 26 minutes to drop a 40-19 decision to the visiting Argonauts. The Eagles scored on the first offensive play of the game and exploded for 240 yards of offense before the homecoming intermission. But an eight-play, 68-yard scoring drive to end the half salvaged the momentum for Garden Grove, which then expanded its 20-19 halftime advantage to improve to 5-1. The Argonauts are ranked No. 7 in CIF Southern Section Division IX. Estancia (1-5)

After nearly 10 years as a Boy Scout, Chad Dominguez stood in front of more than 200 people on Sunday to receive the highest rank in Scouting - Eagle Scout. Becoming an Eagle Scout is no easy task, but for Dominguez and his family, the recognition that came with this Eagle Court of Honor ceremony was extra special. Dominguez, who is 25, has Down syndrome. His Scoutmaster, Dennis Moder, said the tear-filled celebration held added importance because it is rare for a Scout with special needs to reach the rank of Eagle.

Typically when a Life Scout sets out to do an Eagle Scout project, it is generally some sort of construction-related endeavor. Mitchel Anderson installed creative bike racks near the Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguards headquarters, and Ken Gironda built a much-needed patio awning for the Brothers of St. Patrick in Midway City. But Life Scout Quinton Fults decided to take an unconventional route and organize a variety show. The 17-year-old senior at Brethren Christian High School, in Huntington Beach, who dabbles in bluegrass music and magic, wanted to do something more creative and more in his wheelhouse.

About a month ago, Life Scout Mitchel Anderson installed 10 new bike racks near the Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguard Headquarters. With help from his parents, friends, the junior guard coordinator and city employees, the 15-year-old from Huntington Beach High School was able to install five U-shaped racks near Kokomo's Surfside Grill and five surfboard-shaped racks near the junior guard building. He will be dedicating the racks July 12 to the city and those who helped him. "Everybody thought they were just an art piece.

“Eagle Eye” shamelessly borrows elements from many successful action movies. “Mission Impossible,” “The Bourne Identity” and “Indiana Jones” are just a few. But its driving character is a government super computer that develops a mind of its own and tries to take over Homeland Security operations. This computer gone bad plot is right out of Stanley Kubrick’s groundbreaking “2001.” The disturbed HAL 2000 computer of that movie has been replaced with a female-voiced machine in “Eagle Eye.” She can control all things electronic.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — It took five energy draining games and one classic match, but the greatest season in the history of La Cañada High boys' volleyball finally came to an end. With it came the end of, arguably, the greatest career in Spartan history, as senior Mike Gaudino left a lasting impression in the form of 39 kills. It came as La Cañada fell in dramatic fashion to visiting Brentwood, 26-24, 20-25, 25-23, 23-25, 15-10, at the Spartan gym in the CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinals.

UPLAND ? The teams traded errors, unearned runs and leads. In the end, the Flintridge Prep baseball squad saw its season end on a disappointing note. Flintridge Prep squandered three leads en route to an 11-10 loss to Upland Christian on Friday in a CIF Southern Section Division VI first-round loss at Upland Memorial Park. The Rebels (14-7) picked up their equipment prior to meeting with friends and family members before boarding the team bus back to La Ca"ada Flintridge wondering what might have been.
