COSTA MESA — First place in the Orange Coast League and the Costa Mesa High boys' basketball team mentioned in the same sentence might sound odd. But that is where the Mustangs stood Friday night. That is where Coach Bryan Rice expected the Mustangs to be after four league games, quite a turnaround for a team that won a total of three games last season. In the way, Laguna Beach, the only known winner since the Orange Coast League began in 2006-07. Costa Mesa, leading by four points, was 37 seconds away from beating the Breakers.

The outcome of the 2008 Orange Coast League girls? basketball championship laid in the balance Tuesday night at Dugger Gym. The Laguna Beach Breakers needed a win over visiting Costa Mesa to share the league crown with the Mustangs. But Costa Mesa, which was upset at home by the Breakers on Jan. 25, has the title all to itself. The Mustangs took an early 8-0 lead and Laguna was never able to fully recover and went on to suffer a 62-51 defeat. A victory would have given Laguna a share of the league lead with Costa Mesa with one game to play.

LAGUNA BEACH — The Costa Mesa High girls’ soccer team opened Orange Coast League play Thursday against the same team it closed it out with last season. The Mustangs let last season’s league finale against Laguna Beach get away, costing them an outright league title and forcing them to share the crown with rival Estancia. Costa Mesa allowed another win to slip away against Laguna Beach. The Mustangs’ run at an eighth straight league title started with a less-than-stellar result.
