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.

It's two weeks before the high school baseball season begins, and let me offer one certain conclusion: Don't worry about the top teams not having a No. 2 pitcher. In fact, most will have three and four top pitchers. I can't remember a preseason when I have seen more teams with outstanding depth at the pitcher position. Forget about the days teams worried about having to play three games in a week because of rainouts. No big deal this season. Let's start with the two teams that have the best group of pitchers.

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.
