Bob and Mike Bryan, the identical twins from Camarillo, won their 11th major tennis title Saturday, defeating eighth-seeded Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (2), in the Wimbledon men's doubles final. It was the second Wimbledon championship for the twins, who tied Australians Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde with 11 titles at Grand Slam-level events. "This is as special as it gets," Mike Bryan said. "To equal the Woodies, a team that we idolized, the greatest team in our mind, is unbelievable.

Woodbridge (0-4-1) was shut out for the fourth time this season.

After a two-year stretch near the bottom of the Sea View League boys' basketball standings, once-mighty Woodbridge made a bold statement Friday night with an impressive 65-51 victory over visiting Newport Harbor. "I think we're back," Warrior Coach John Halagan said. "I think it's official."
Both were looking for the same pitch and when they got it, Lisa Weaver and Jessica Montgomery didn't waste the opportunity. Weaver, a freshman designated hitter, and Montgomery, a junior first baseman, knocked in the tying and winning runs for Woodbridge to give the Warriors a 2-1 victory in eight innings over Saugus in the Southern Section 3-A softball championship game Saturday at Mayfair Park.

At the time, the trade hardly seemed fair. Irvine Woodbridge High School's Adam Keefe, an All-Southern Section center, for Richard Reyna, a Banning reserve forward. Both were ejected from the 2-A championship game Saturday at the Sports Arena, won by Woodbridge, 68-60, in overtime. Reyna was ousted for clothes-lining and slamming Keefe to the floor as he tried a dunk midway through the fourth quarter. It touched off a brawl that was broken up by coaches, security personnel and police.

Mark Woodforde isn't stalking Bob and Mike Bryan. It just seems that way. Woodforde is modest and his face reddens a little as he speaks of his record-setting doubles play, of the 61 titles he and his fellow Australian Todd Woodbridge won during 10 years of playing together until they retired in 2000. Woodforde is in L.A. to do some work for the Tennis Channel but mostly to be around if the Bryan twins from Camarillo win the doubles title Sunday at the Farmers Classic tournament at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.

Bob and Mike Bryan, the music-making, arm-punching, chest-bumping doubles team from Camarillo, won their 61st career doubles title Sunday in Madrid, beating Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic, 6-3, 6-4. With the victory, the 31-year-old Bryans are tied with Australians Paul Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde for the most career doubles titles. "It's something we've been kind of focusing on for the last couple of years," Mike Bryan said from Spain on Sunday night. "As we were getting close to the record, it was kind of a nervous feeling.

There's a sense of wonder when Alex Parsons thinks about it. And then he laughs. Imagine, an under-the-radar linebacker from an unheralded high school team who has been offered a scholarship to play on the defensive line for the No. 1 college football program in the country. Blessed with the things that can't be coached -- size, speed, strength -- Parsons was selected most valuable player at the USC lineman camp.

The mist at Irvine High School was so thick Friday night that if you were in the Woodbridge stands you could hear, but barely see, the Chaminade fans across the field. And if you were Woodbridge quarterback Fred Schweer, back to pass from the 32-yard line, the end zone was merely a distant blur. But with 50 seconds left in the game, with Woodbridge down by four points, Schweer threw the ball toward the general direction of the one-yard line.

In an event steeped in tradition and history, Michael McClune of Irvine Woodbridge has just started his legacy.

Alma Escobar still feels the stares when she strides away from the starting line, almost as though she's the lone participant in a race. But eyes no longer train on Escobar solely for her diminutive frame. Escobar, a junior cross-country runner at Corona, is gaining more attention for the way she dwarfs the competition. "She has a Cadillac engine in a Volkswagen body," said Don Chadez, the athletic director at Corona and a former track and cross-country coach for 26 years.
