Huntington Beach High withstood a late charge by San Clemente in a heated prep surf competition last weekend at the Huntington Beach Pier, and the Oilers were able to hold on for a 71-70 victory over the Tritons in the National Surf League's Red Bull High School Cup. Huntington took a four-point lead into the fourth quarter where San Clemente scored some top waves to get back into contention. Trevor Sanders landed a huge front side alley-oop air followed by two huge snaps, moves that earned him the game's Most Radical Maneuver award.

WET AND WILD WITH ROCKIN' FIG The National Scholastic Surfing Assn's Interscholastic State Championships went off in some nice weather and surf down at Church's in San Clemente Saturday. A solid combination of a southern- hemi swell filling in and west wind swell gave the surfers some 3- to 5-foot clean conditions to work with, nothing like the stormy conditions that were dealt the first time around forcing a postponement about a month ago. The San Clemente High School Tritons took advantage in their home turf sending five surfers to the six-man final.
