COSTA MESA ? The anxiety was understandable. Both teams figured to have it in Thursday?s Orange Coast League baseball game between Laguna Beach High and Costa Mesa. After all, the winner would be in sole possession of first place in league with the first round down. But, to Laguna Beach Coach Jeff Sears, it appeared that the host Mustangs did a better job of handing that anxiety. It showed in the Mustangs? better at-bats, which they used to earn a 6-1 win that bounced the Breakers to second place.

LAGUNA BEACH ? Forty-six years turned into 47 on Tuesday for the Laguna Beach High baseball team. The Orange Coast League title was so close, yet so far away after Costa Mesa topped the Breakers, 9-2, to clinch the league title outright. Laguna Beach hasn?t won a baseball league title since 1963, and that remains true, regardless of the result of Thursday?s game at Costa Mesa. The Mustangs hadn?t won a league title since 1978 themselves, and what Laguna Beach Coach Jeff Sears saw was a hungrier group from Costa Mesa.

LAGUNA BEACH — At 10 years old, Laguna Beach native Brandon Sears first competed in the Victoria Skimboards World Championship of Skimboarding with a Victoria “foamie” board. He’s been a mainstay at “The Vic,” making it to the final heat of the professional division several times but never coming out with a win. That changed Sunday, as Brandon C. Sears – also known simply as “BCS” – got his win, taking the professional division final at the 33rd annual event held over the weekend at Aliso Beach.

In a four-year span, Jeff Sears took the Laguna Beach High baseball program to places it had never been before. In the recently completed 2011 season, the Breakers won a league championship for the first time in 48 years, won a record number of games (27) for a single season and reached the quarterfinal round of the CIF Division 4 playoffs for the first time. But starting in 2012, the baseball program will be under new direction. On Tuesday, Sears became the new head baseball coach at Servite.

Don Leach's remembrance of the Laguna fire brought me back to a night that is etched in the collective memory of the Newport-Mesa community ("Photographer worked as hometown burned," Coastline Pilot, Oct. 25). Standing with my family above Back Bay and watching the glow of the fire advance up the back side of Newport Coast and wondering if it would crest the hill and burn down into Buck Gully and Corona del Mar. Hoping that the firefighters assembled on Newport Coast Road would not be forced to battle the flames that had mocked all efforts to check them.

Victoria Skimboards' Brandon Sears came out on top of a competitive field of more than 100 contestants to win the third annual Laguna Surf and Sport Pro/Am Skim contest held at Thalia Street beach. The event drew several local amateurs but it was the pros who showed off their aggressive, technical riding. Victoria Skimboards athletes Jaime Kaya Lovett and Brandon Rothe took second- and third-place, respectively. Sears, 19, and Lovett, 16, both wowed the crowd with a 360 shuv-it on his way out to the wave, followed by a wrap barrel.

This may be the year that the Laguna Beach High baseball team can accomplish big things. ?This process started three years ago,? Coach Jeff Sears said. ?Now it?s time to reap the benefits. We believe we?re a pretty good ballclub.? Laguna finished 14-14 last year, second in the Orange Coast League to Costa Mesa and lost in the CIF Southern Section Division IV first round to eventual-champion San Dimas. The Breakers have not won a league title in 47 years. ?We?re a baseball school, and our kids are starting to buy into that,?

The advantages of riding Aliso waves year-round was evident when the final round of the Professionals division in the 32nd annual Victoria Skimboards World Championships of Skimboarding came down to four Laguna Beach natives Sunday. The two-day event took place at Aliso Beach, which served up a mixture of sun and clouds and produced some gnarly three- to five-foot swells for competitors from all over the world to show off their skills. Brandon Rothe took the 2008 title, followed by last year’s winner Bill Bryan in second, Brandon Sears in third place, and Brendan “Noogie” Stevens in fourth.
