Newport Harbor boys' water polo coach Robert Lynn is not one to talk about a potential opponent in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs and look past the first round. But Lynn was willing to talk about No. 2-seeded Harvard-Westlake because he had coached there prior to Newport Harbor and helped with the building of a strong program for the Wolverines. Newport Harbor, one of three Newport-Mesa area teams in the playoffs, is the No. 3 seed and if the brackets hold up, the Sailors will meet Harvard-Westlake in the semifinals Nov. 20 at William Woollett Aquatic Center in Irvine.

A couple of weeks ago, Brian Theriot paid Bob Hailey a visit to give his former Newport Harbor High track and field coach a special gift. Hailey, a recent inductee into the CIF Southern Section Hall of Fame, received a gold lifetime membership pass to any sporting event in the section. Hailey was unable to make the Hall of Fame ceremony in Long Beach because he couldn't get around as good as he used to because of a bad right leg injury he suffered 34 years ago when a drunk driver hit him. Theriot, who spoke on Hailey's behalf, along with other Newport Harbor representatives, made sure to drive to Hailey's Costa Mesa home the next day. When Theriot arrived, no one was home.

At 78, Bob Hailey, a former Newport Harbor High track and field coach, says he cannot get around as good as he used to because of a bad right leg. He lost mobility in that leg 34 years ago, when a drunk driver hit him. Then 17 years ago, he lost that leg because of another car accident. While Hailey has endured a lot, one of his former athletes, Brian Theriot, says it's no accident Hailey will be inducted into the CIF Southern Section Hall of Fame on Thursday. "He had an immense impact on all of us as a coach and teacher," Theriot says.

CORONA DEL MAR The Battle of the Bay trophy is finally back at Corona del Mar High. The Sea Kings ended the Sailors' six-year reign in the football rivalry, pounding them, 34-14, in front of a sold-out crowd of 7,600 at Orange Coast College. Only one team had beat CdM during the past two years in which the Sea Kings won consecutive CIF Southern Section Southern Division titles. The Sailors fell way short of knocking off CdM again as the Sea Kings shut them down in the second half.

The sounds coming from an office inside Corona del Mar High's field house are hard for Coach Scott Meyer to ignore. "I heard a lot of giggling," said Meyer, who eventually learns what all the fuss is about in the room. Four of his players are having a good time talking about the upcoming season. If there's pressure to repeat the success of the past two seasons, the Sea Kings aren't showing it at all. The bar has been set high at CdM since Meyer arrived at the school two years ago from Long Beach.

Peri Howser ran into problems last weekend at the CIF Southern Section divisional track and field finals at Mt. San Antonio College. Her run was precisely the problem. Timing is everything in pole vaulting, and Howser's timing was off on her approach. When she got home that night and watched video with her father and coach, Fritz, she saw the issue. "I was running from two different spots," Peri Howser said. "I was kind of freaking out while I was jumping. I didn't know why I was out so far, but I figured it out that I was running from the wrong spot.

WALNUT - Marty Taylor's Saturday was over, in terms of throwing for Newport Harbor High at the CIF Southern Section Track and Field finals. He stuck around in the heat at Mt. San Antonio College, not to work on a tan. Taylor sat on the bleachers near the shotput ring to watch two throwers, his competition next week. Earlier in the day, Taylor won the discus throw with a mark of 181 feet, 5 inches, tops for all four divisions. The UCLA-bound senior's best shotput effort, a 60-4 throw, gave him the Division 2 title, but he knew it wasn't going to hold up as the meet's overall top mark.
