Newport Harbor boys volleyball beats Mira Costa to capture first SoCal Regional title

NEWPORT BEACH – It takes a special team to ascend to new heights when it is already one of the premier volleyball programs in the nation, and the Newport Harbor boys volleyball team proved to be the epitome of special.

The Sailors gave their longtime coach Rocky Ciarelli the proper sendoff by winning the school’s first CIF Southern California Regional Division I championship with a victory over Mira Costa 18-25, 25-17, 25-12, 25-19 on Saturday night at Newport Harbor High.

Ciarelli, who announced his retirement at the beginning of the season, didn’t want the focus to be on him after the victory.

“First of all, I’d like to thank the crowd, and then these kids, they’re something special.” Ciarelli said. “You saw tonight how much they hustled, the desire they had, they just kept working, especially after losing that first game.”

Dayne Chalmers finished with 19 kills and Jack Higgs had 11 kills to pace the Sailors (39-1), who finished the season 11-0 at home.

The Mustangs (25-7), who lost to Newport Harbor in the CIF SS Division 1 final last week, fared much better in Saturday’s opening set.

“I thought Mira Costa played really well (in the first set),” Ciarelli said. “They didn’t miss many serves, they passed well, but as the game went on our game picked up and their game broke down a little bit too.”

Mira Costa coach Avery Drost knew his team would have to play a near-perfect game to beat the Sailors, but the Mustangs were unable to sustain that level of play for the duration of the match.

“They are excellent and they’re gonna make you pay for every mistake” Drost said of Newport Harbor. “I think our team is capable of putting together stretches that can hang with them, but to do that over the course of five sets, if that’s what it takes to beat these guys, is a really tall task.”

Set 2.

Ben Coordt had a team-high 10 kills for Mira Costa, which also got contributions from Thomas Kretschmer and Sam Collins in the opening set.

It was all Newport Harbor after that.

The Sailors regained their rhythm in the second set and were especially tough up the middle as Caden Garrido and Alec Patterson controlled the net by constantly blocking the Mustangs swings.

Newport Harbor continued its march towards school history in the third and fourth sets by sticking to the fundamentals, clean passing by Joe Karlous and Ryan Schroeder and swift attacks from the outside courtesy Blake Ludes, Higgs and Chalmers.

“It takes a toll on a team,” Ciarelli said about the Sailors’ game plan. “We’re going to play at a certain level, and maybe you can play at that level for a while, but let’s see if you can play at that level for four or five games.”

Garcia plays starring role as Sonora baseball rolls over Irvine in CIF-SS quarterfinals

LA HABRA – Sonora pitcher Hector Garcia gave up a hit to Irvine lead-off hitter Marc Filia to start the game.

Garcia was in total control on the mound and with the bat the rest of the game.

Postgame interview with Hector Garcia of Sonora. 13 strikeouts while having a 3-hit game, including a solo home run to lead Sonora to the @CIFSS Division 3 semifinals!@ocvarsity @SonoraHS @TheJungleSOHS pic.twitter.com/MNwmbDuj3D

— Manny Alvarez (@MAlvarez02) May 11, 2019

The senior had a three-hit game at the plate, including a home run in the sixth inning, and he struck out 13 batters in 6 2/3 innings on the mound to lead the Raiders to a 9-0 victory over Irvine in the CIF-SS Division 3 quarterfinals Friday afternoon at Sonora High.

“Hector has been an ultimate team player,” Sonora coach Richard Lodding said of Garcia. “He had his best combo today with his pitching and the way he swung the bat. It was a great time to have it, a very great time to have it.”

Sonora (23-8) is in the CIF-SS semifinals for the first time since 1995, when it won the title. The Raiders will play the winner of the Alhambra-Canyon Springs of Moreno Valley game, which has been postponed until Monday, May 13.

After giving up the hit to Filia, Garcia retired the next 13 batters, including striking out six of seven during that run.

Sonora scored three runs in the first inning, including a two-run double from catcher Isaac Ramirez.

That was all the support Garcia needed, but the Raiders were just getting started, as they finished the game with 18 hits.

“It took teamwork,” Garcia said. “It took all of us to get this W. This is what we have been doing all year, honestly. I just had a really good day today. It was working out for me today.”

Garcia added to Sonora’s lead in the fifth inning. He connected for a solo home run to left field to make it 6-0.

Garcia gave up two hits and a walk in his 6 2/3 innings. Lodding took Garcia out of the game because of the pitch count. Justin Estrada recorded the final out.

Filia and Isaac Hong each had a hit for Irvine (19-9) while Elliot Jun got the Vaqueros’ only extra-base hit, a double.

Ryan Barlow pitched 3 1/3 innings, struck out three and gave up five runs for Irvine, which reached the quarterfinals after 10 straight losing seasons.

“It was a turnaround season,” Irvine coach Gabriel Cota said. “Credit to all the guys on the team. I brought in a different mentality with the belief that they could win, but it all goes to the way they grind, the work that they put in and the belief that they knew they could win. I’m so proud of them.”

Garcia, Joey Flores and Austin Haller each had three-hit games for Sonora, which will be at home against Canyon Springs or at Alhambra for the semifinals.

“We have to approach it the way we approach today,” Ramirez said of the semifinals round. “We have to have the same intensity and come out strong from the beginning. We have to work on coming out stronger in the first inning. We have to be louder with more intensity. If we stick to the plan, we shouldn’t have a problem.”

Santiago softball rolls into Division 6 semifinals by knocking off Garey

GARDEN GROVE – The Santiago softball team kept its cool and didn’t panic when Garey of Pomona overcame an early three-run deficit by scoring six consecutive runs,

Instead, the Cavaliers responded by scoring the next eight runs, including a six-run sixth inning, to defeat Garey 11-6 in the CIF-SS Division 6 quarterfinals Thursday afternoon at Santiago High.

The victory sends Santiago (26-1) to the semifinals. The Cavaliers, the No. 1 seed in the bracket, will host Woodcrest Christian of Riverside on Tuesday. Woodcrest Christian defeated San Marino 4-2 on Thursday.

Postgame interview with Aolani Sua of Santiago. 4 hit game, including 2 in the 7th as the Cavaliers head to the semifinals!@ocvarsity @santiagocavali4 @SHSASB_ @ocvarsityguy pic.twitter.com/8orqSj2EWr

— Manny Alvarez (@MAlvarez02) May 10, 2019

The Cavaliers grabbed the lead against Garey (20-1) with a three-run first inning. But a two-run home run by Garey pitcher Melissa Diaz in the second inning was followed by a four-run third inning that put the Vikings ahead 6-3.

Despite that gut punch, the Cavaliers regrouped.

“They knew they could come back,” Santiago coach Melissa Adams said. “They knew they could hit the pitcher really hard. There was no panic. It was early in the game and we had plenty of innings to go.

“As long as we nickeled and dimed each run, we knew we still had a shot. We had a cycle going one thru nine. They never say die. It was fantastic.”

Santiago began to chip away in the third inning as Samantha Castro slugged a solo home run. Castro scored on a throwing error in the fifth inning to make it 6-5.

The Cavaliers retook the lead in the sixth inning, which started with a single from Aolani Sua. She stole second and made an attempt to steal third. A bad throw to third base sent Sua home to tie the score.

Santiago was just getting started.

“That took a lot of work,” Sua said. “This is a team sport and we all came together and got the win together.”

Two infield errors ensued after Santiago pitcher Rena Rocha was hit by the pitch. With the bases loaded, Rocha scored on a wild pitch to give the Cavaliers a 7-6 lead.

Santiago scored four more runs, including Sua’s second hit of the inning, a two-run single.

Rocha pitched a complete game, struck out six and ended the Vikings’ perfect season.

Sua went 4 for 5 with two RBIs and Castro drove in three runs.

The Cavaliers are now a win away from playing in the CIF-SS finals.

“We have to stay calm,” Rocha said. “We have to have faith in your team because anything can happen. We just have to keep going.”

Century baseball scores in bunches against St. Margaret’s, moves on to quarterfinals

SANTA ANA – Century’s baseball team stayed hot at the plate, scoring double-digits runs for the fourth consecutive game as the Centurions rolled to an 11-3 victory over St. Margaret’s in the second round of the CIF-SS Division 5 playoffs.

The 11 runs matched what Century scored against Arrowhead Christian in the first round of the playoffs.

The Centurions (23-6) also got a great performance from their ace Adam Santana, who pitched all seven innings and struck out nine batters.

“That kid can pitch,” Century coach Theo Cortes exclaimed about Santana. “He mixes pitches really well and he can control three different pitches. He’s a competitor on the mound.”

Century will play at Xavier Prep in the Division 5 quarterfinals on Friday, May 10.

After allowing a lead-off double to Alex Smith in the first inning, Santana struck out the side on stop the scoring threat by the Tartans (14-6).

St. Margaret’s starter Rob Gonzalez also struck out the side in the first inning, but things fell apart for him in the second as the Centurions took a 4-0 lead with timely hits by Anthony Olivares and Eddie Esquivel and alert baserunning.

St. Margaret’s coach Scott Wallis said Century is the best team his players faced all year.

“With all due respect to Capo Valley Christian, (Century) really took it to us. We haven’t lost a game in almost two months, but they were just better today.” Wallis said of the Centurions.

After falling behind 6-0, the Tartans were able to cut their deficit to 6-3 in the sixth inning.

Will Riddle and Trey Pate each collected infield singles to start the inning, and Collin Miehe and Gonzalez each had an RBI in the inning.

Century responded with five runs in the bottom half of the sixth inning to put the game away for good.

Henry Rojas and Damien Chavez each had two-RBI singles in the sixth.

“We took a lot of really good at-bats,” Cortes said. “When you do that, eventually you’re gonna put a lot of runners (on) and eventually one ball is gonna drop and you’re gonna get some runs on those hits.”
