His nickname could be "Aqua Lung." His slogan could be: Banker by day, world-class swimmer by night. He is Richard Saeger, a 1984 Olympic gold medalist who has recently delved, or dived, back into the pool, breaking records all over again. Saeger, 41, who regularly trains at Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar High school pools, is fresh off a world-record performance in the 100-meter freestyle in the 40-44 age division at the Mission Viejo Masters Meet July 3. An Irvine resident since 1999, Saeger got back into competitive swimming in 2000 after taking a 14-year hiatus to focus on his career -- banking, basically.

The only thing the Edison High girls' soccer team lacked Tuesday in its CIF Southern Section Division 1 second-round match against Mission Viejo was a finishing touch. It certainly wasn't for a lack of effort, desire or drive by the eighth-ranked Chargers that cost them against the visiting Diablos, a 1-0 defeat that did put the finishing touch on what had been an outstanding season. "We just didn't finish," Edison Coach Kerry Crooks said after her team — which she said overachieved in 2010-11 — had its season end. "We had our opportunities but couldn't complete them, and that's the game of soccer.
