GIRLS HOOPS: Newport Harbor High's girls basketball team knocked off title contender Aliso Niguel Friday night on the loser's floor, 45-32, serving notice the Sailors' 12-12, 2-5 record can be deceiving. Using a suffocating zone in the first half, Jen Thompson's Sailors frustrated Aliso's major threat and the die was cast for the Sea View League upset. Jillianne Whitfield was the ringleader with 14 points, 11 rebounds and five steals, and she had some big help from the likes of Victoria Swigart (10 points and seven rebounds)

Newport Harbor High pitcher Joey Cantarella allowed just three hits and shut host Aliso Niguel out the final five innings, but a three-run burst in the first inning proved decisive as Aliso posted a 3-2 Sea View League baseball victory Tuesday. Two walks and a one-out double play ball which was thrown away at first got Aliso Niguel all the offense it would need to improve to 4-2 in league. R.J. Muller got Newport off on the right foot in the first inning with a double and Karo Makserjian got him home with a base hit to left.

ALISO VIEJO - The Newport Harbor High boys volleyball team rebounded from a Game 1 loss to roll past host Aliso Niguel, 14-6, 15-0, 15-6, 15-1, Friday. The loss came with some bad news. Standout outside hitter Blake Tippett is out indefinitely battling a case of mononucleosis. His status for the upcoming CIF Southern Section playoffs is uncertain, as well as tonight's Battle of the Bay at Corona del Mar (6:30).It's a tough loss, but the rest of the team is going to have to pick up the slack," Coach Dan Glenn said.

ALISO VIEJO - Costa Mesa high girls' soccer team needed strong defense and flawless goaltending in Tuesday's nonleague matchup and judging by the 0-0 result, the Mustangs got what they needed. Margaret Landeros had 14 saves for the Mustangs (2-0-2), while the defensive play of Katie Roche, Sara Smallcomb and May Powers rose to the challenge of the ever-charging Aliso Niguel (3-0-1) offense. "That was one of the best goaltending games I've seen in quite a while," Coach Dan Johnston said.

Tony Altobelli ALISO VIEJO - Newport Harbor High boys soccer coach Matt West said it best when describing Friday crucial Sea View League match with Aliso Viejo, won by the visiting Sailors, 2-1. "We took everything they had to give us," he said. "We took their best shot." Whether he meant that literally is the big question. In a game that had the subtlety of a train wreck and had more yellow cards flashed than a busy psychic, Newport Harbor scored two goals in the first seven minutes of the game, then held on to the ropes to avoid the knockout.

After tonight, Newport Harbor High Coach Jeff Brinkley should be three wins away from No. 200. The Sailors kick off the season at lowly Aliso Niguel at 7 p.m. with a lot of hope and inexperience. The most experience comes from their coach, who’s entering his 24th season. “I think we’re ready to play a game,” said Brinkley, whose team scrimmaged Troy last week. “We got a lot of guys who need game experience. “We’re the type of team that can beat anybody, but we’re also the type of team that anybody can beat.

COSTA MESA — If Harvard-Westlake girls' water polo coach Robert Lynn had his way, his team would be playing in the prestigious Holiday Cup tournament that begins today in Newport Beach. Lynn believes his team has the credentials as the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division IV. He tends to know what he's talking about, as a 2000 Olympian in men's water polo and assistant coach on the 2008 United States men's team that took silver in Beijing. "We were trying to get into the Holiday Cup," Lynn said.

On paper, today’s CIF Southern California Division II Regional Championships semifinal at Aliso Niguel High appears to be the premiere matchup of Orange County teams. But the match might not have Corona del Mar (25-1-1) and JSerra (25-4-1) at full strength when the teams begin at 4:15 p.m. Sea Kings’ first-year coach George Larsen said CdM might be without freshman Jack McBean and the Lions may be missing two of their players because of commitments to their regional teams in the Olympic Development Program National Championships in Arizona, which start on Friday.

WESTMINSTER — Two transfers stood next to each other on the court for the first time in a Corona del Mar High boys’ basketball game. One guard came off the bench Monday and gave fans hope for the future, while the other started and reminded some of the successful past. The path to CdM for Ramon Mejia is different than the one Clayton Ragsdale took before the season. Coach Ryan Schachter is glad to have both juniors. Mejia and Ragsdale each finished with 12 points and six assists in the Sea Kings’ 72-53 victory against Aliso Niguel in the first pool-play game at the La Quinta Classic.

Kicking has been a lonely job for Dillan Freiberg the past two years. While the football team worked out on the practice field at Newport Harbor High, Freiberg called the stadium home. He wasn’t completely by himself. There was a football and tee. This year, the senior is all alone again, in the Orange County record book that is. This type of isolation feels good to Freiberg. Freiberg set the county record for consecutive successful extra-point kicks at 60 last week.

Scheduled to stop at Newport Harbor High tonight at 7 was a train. The Sailors don’t have to worry about a 6-foot-4, 230-pound running back from Loyola of Los Angeles in their home opener. Anthony Barr broke his ankle last week and won’t be available when the Sailors (1-0) play host to the Cubs (1-1), ranked No. 10 in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division poll. Not having to face one of the highly recruited seniors in the country on the football field is a plus for Newport Harbor.

ALISO VIEJO — Two coaches met on the football field Friday night and each left in opposite directions. One is three wins shy of No. 200. The other is in charge of a program which hasn’t won in its last 18 games. Coach Jeff Brinkley was the one walking away with a smile after Newport Harbor High’s season opener. Once again, Coach Jeff Veeder saw Aliso Niguel falter. The Sailors routed the Wolverines, 45-7, on a night in which their longtime coach inched closer to a milestone and their kicker surpassed one. Newport Harbor scored six touchdowns, giving senior kicker Dillan Freiberg the opportunity to claim an Orange County record.
