The cupboard never seems to be bare over at Edison High. Last year, the Chargers were stocked with more than their share of talent at the skill positions. That 2005 team set high standards for itself, won the Sunset League title and was ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division I for a majority of the regular season. After the season, however, the Chargers were forced to forfeit eight wins due to the use of an ineligible player. A lot of that talent was lost to graduation last June, leaving Coach Dave White with the off-season task of finding able replacements.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — The Edison High baseball team had never won back-to-back Sunset League titles. That changed Friday, with a little help from Los¬†Alamitos.

The Chargers (17-7, 11-2) now have a two-game lead over second-place¬†Esperanza with two to play. Esperanza was upset by Los Alamitos, 10-8, on Friday.

The Sunset League title isn?t won overnight, and Edison High baseball coach Steve Lambright knows it. But the Chargers also know that they wouldn?t trade their current position: first place.

Bruce Beutler got his first glimpse of what the future potentially could hold for the 2008 edition of his Marina High boys’ tennis team during a simple camp last summer. It was during that camp where visions of the coming season began to come into focus for Beutler and the Vikings, who returned several solid players from a team that finished in third place in the Sunset League last year. But not even that summer camp could come close to what the future actually did hold.

Three local teams open Sunset League play Friday in the league that?s recognized by many as the toughest in Southern California. Two teams will do so against each other. The Marina High Vikings (1-4) and Fountain Valley Barons (5-0) play at 7 p.m. at Huntington Beach High, and this one looks to be a mismatch on paper. Fountain Valley, coming off a bye, is ranked No. 7 in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division poll heading into Friday night, which is the Barons? homecoming game.

Huntington Beach High enters its second century of existence in the 2006-07 school year. Coincidentally, the Oilers do so with a new league affiliation. Gone are the days of competing in the star-studded Sunset League, a time-honored alliance that has traditionally been home to Edison, Fountain Valley and Marina, and in recent years, Los Alamitos and Esperanza. In its place this year — and for the next four — is life in the Sea View League where the Oilers will co-exist with league holdovers Foothill and Woodbridge, and fellow newcomers El Toro, Northwood and Trabuco Hills.
