JERRY PERSON "I think my name is there," Huntington Beach resident Herb Day said as we talked about the upcoming rededication of the World War II memorial plaque at the entrance of the auditorium to Huntington Beach High School. The ceremony will take place at 4 p.m. on Saturday. My friend, the late Rusty Shepard, had told me about this piece of Huntington High history, and he was very proud that his name was on there and that it was still around to honor his school buddies who served in World War II. I have heard about this historic plaque from several people over the years, and at first, I got this World War II plaque mixed up with the wooden plaque erected in a vacant lot on the corner of Main Street and Olive Avenue that honored all H.B. residents who served in that war. I am indebted to Rosemary McCormick Robinson for supplying me with the information on this rededication ceremony.

Vickie Covert and Terry Ortiz began in October to prepare for the revival of the once-successful Huntington Beach High School Educational Foundation’s golf tournament. Now, all they need is the community behind them. The lack of golfers has the two organizers, both parents at the school, worried that the fundraiser Monday may not be enough to fill the school’s most recent budget gap. The organizers’ goal is 100 participants, but turnout so far has been much smaller than that.

George Pascoe is no stranger to coaching football at Marina High, or to coaching high school football in Huntington Beach. And while he knows his next task might be challenging, he is excited for the opportunity. Pascoe, 55, has been named the head coach at Marina. The former coach at Huntington Beach High (1983-’95) has also been assistant coach at Marina for the past six years. Following the stint with the Oilers, he was an assistant coach at Golden West College for six years before landing with the Vikings.

It's finals week at Huntington Beach High, but things are far from finalized for the Oilers' girls' basketball team. At the halfway point of the Sea View League girls' basketball race, Huntington sits alone at the top of the heap. The Oilers won their first five league outings and embark on the second round of league play beginning tonight with a 7 p.m. home date with Trabuco Hills. If the first meeting between the two schools is any indication of what might come tonight — Huntington clobbered the Mustangs, 71-24, on the opening night of league play on Jan. 4 — then consider the Oilers to be a heavy favorite, despite hitting the books hard this week.

It was three years ago this coming summer, that Huntington Beach took center stage nationally and internationally, on the youth sports scene. In late-August of 2011, the Ocean View Little League All-Star team (11-12 year-olds) made it all the way to Williamsport, Pa., for the Little League Baseball World Series. Ocean View not only qualified for the tournament, but also won the coveted title. Since that time, the 13 members of that memorable squad have all moved on. Each, now, is in high school, several at the same school, Huntington Beach High, and although not all are walking the halls on the same campus, they all have one thing in common: all 13, are still playing baseball.

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.
