HUNTINGTON BEACH — Coming off an ugly performance, the Ocean View High basketball team needed a bounce-back. Three nights after what Coach Jim Harris called his team’s worst showing in two years, they got some of that mojo back. Behind 30 points from senior Avery Johnson, Ocean View defeated La Jolla, 62-47, in the first round of the CIF Southern California Division III regional. That came after a painful 64-58 loss to Foothill on Saturday night at the Honda Center in the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA championship game.

Opposing teams focus on senior running back Kyle Middlebrooks when trying to stop Fountain Valley, and deservedly so. But Thursday night, senior quarterback Dominic Ragland showed he can pass the test as well. Big-time. Ragland threw for 234 yards and four touchdowns as the Barons ran away from Foothill, 44-21, in both teams’ season opener at Huntington Beach High. [Ragland] has to make some plays with his arm, and he did," Fountain Valley Coach John Shipp said.

Coach John Shipp called it a "humbling experience" for his Fountain Valley High football team. The Barons opened their season Friday against Foothill, played from behind all night and in the end, were doomed by costly mistakes that ultimately led to a 28-14 defeat at Huntington Beach High. Fountain Valley's offense moved the ball all game but Foothill held the edge in execution, and in turnovers gained. The Knights came up with a fumble recovery in the first half to thwart a scoring drive by the Barons, and came up with a pair of interceptions in the final three minutes to secure the win. Foothill didn't commit a turnover.

Ciarelli, a Huntington native, is retiring at season’s end after coaching at his alma mater for 24 years, 14 of which he simultaneously coached both the boys’ and girls’ teams.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — It was just a matter of getting back to the basics Friday night for the Huntington Beach High boys’ basketball team. Huntington, which had been a solid defensive team the first 15 games of its season, pressured matters early in its Sea View League opener against visiting Foothill. A quick start allowed the Oilers an early lead, but then they got out of sync, fell behind, but regrouped to come up with a big run in the third quarter that allowed them to come away with a 66-56 victory in front of a large home crowd at Elmer Combs Gymnasium.

The final night of the Sunset League girls' basketball season went down to the final second on Feb. 8, with a championship resting on the outcome. The last shot in a back-and-forth game between Esperanza and host Edison went to the visitors. When it went through the net, the Aztecs had an outright championship. Needing a victory in order to earn a share of the Sunset crown, Edison appeared poised to send the game into overtime when sophomore Kelly Peterson followed her own miss to score the tying basket.

ANAHEIM — Dunks are usually at the ready for the Ocean View High boys’ basketball team. It’s not a tough equation. Steals lead to fast-breaks, which lead to dunks and more often than not, Ocean View wins. Second-seeded Foothill did something about that Saturday night at the Honda Center, out-muscling the top-seeded Seahawks and hanging on for the upset win, 64-58, in the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA championship game. Foothill won its first-ever CIF title in boys’ basketball, in its first finals appearance.

Coach Dave White said it wasn't his team's best effort. For the Edison football team, Friday's performance was just enough to get the Chargers where they had wanted all along for the season to take them: to Angel Stadium.

A strong pitching and hitting performance by senior Travis Sparks-Jackson and a clutch home run by senior Timmy Robinson on Monday sparked the Ocean View baseball team to victory at the Foothill Tournament.

SANTA ANA — Anthony Brown and Avery Johnson are the players who receive the most publicity for the Ocean View High boys’ basketball team, and deservedly so. But if senior center Ryan Okwudibonye keeps playing this way, the Seahawks are going to be awfully tough to beat. Okwudibonye picked a perfect time to have one of his best games of the year, Friday night in a CIF Southern Section Division III-AA semifinal game. He had 15 points and a career-high 18 rebounds as Ocean View topped Palm Springs, 70-51, at Mater Dei High.
