It was an exercise in futility. At least that's how it seemed for Calvary Chapel's chief rival Saturday at the Southern Section Division I wrestling duals at Temecula Valley High. Temecula Valley posted impressive wins in the first three rounds of the meet, but the second-seeded Golden Bears couldn't beat Calvary Chapel, as the top-ranked team in the state won, 40-31, to defend its Division I dual meet title. "Hey, I expected to win," Temecula Valley Coach Arnold Alpert said.

For Esperanza Coach Steve Marshall, the Southern Section Division II Dual Meet Championship final was bittersweet. Just to be in the finals against defending champion Temecula Valley was pleasing to Esperanza. That and the fact that the Aztecs defeated Irvine to reach finals. So what was more painful? The Aztecs' 35-21 loss to host Temecula Valley or a controversial call in the 171-pound match? The Aztecs were ahead, 21-20, going into the 171-pound match.

The Five Counties Wrestling Invitational can be a humbling experience. Then again, it can be as sweet as Grandma's fudge. It can squash an ego like a bug. Or, as in Tim Dye's case, pump you so full of adrenaline that Godzilla seems beatable. Dye, a 175-pound senior from Anaheim High, got his fix Saturday after battling his way through two days of wrestling into the championship final of the 64-school meet at Fountain Valley High School.

A giant rock quarry proposed in the hills above Temecula had politicians from one of the most conservative corners of the Inland Empire railing Monday against corporate arrogance and environmental devastation, while union workers pushed the project as a job creator. The political twists are intensifying as the five-year-long controversy over the Liberty Quarry barrels toward a vote before the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, which on Monday held the first of two days of public hearings in a packed convention center ballroom.

In five days, Dominic Smith leaves for New York to experience the excitement of baseball's amateur draft, in which he is likely to be a first-round choice. But on Friday afternoon, he and his Gardena Serra teammates flashed big smiles and screamed like children at an amusement park after an 8-1 victory over Manhattan Beach Mira Costa in the Southern Section Division 3 championship game at Dodger Stadium. "It's sweet," said Smith, a left-hander who struck out nine in 61/3 innings, walked three times (two were intentional)
