The Newport Beach Sluggers 9U travel team finished second in the USSSA Oktoberfest tournament in Fountain Valley. Carter Healy was the winning pitcher in the first game against the Pacific Palisades Crush going four innings in a 12-9 victory. The second game of the day was under the lights, against the Fullerton Titans. It was a nailbiter that ended with walk-off double by Calder Overfelt in the bottom of the sixth for an 18-17 win. The 2-0 Saturday record earned the Sluggers a No. 2 seed for Sunday's single-elimination game where they faced the Fullerton Titans again.

Tony Altobelli CORONA DEL MAR - For Corona del Mar High's track and field coach Bill Sumner, each meet this year is a new learning experience. "We're still tinkering with some things here and there," Sumner said following Wednesday's dual meet win for both the boys' and girls' squads over Fountain Valley. "We're not gonna have all these events figured out just yet. Each meet, we get closer and closer to that." Junior Travis Beardslee and Sean Fenton led the boys squad to a 79-57 win over the Barons, while Liz Morse helped the girls to an 88-58 win. "Last year we had a bunch of firsts," Sumner said.

The one Newport Harbor High football game Cecil Whiteside looked forward to rubbing more than elbows in this year might take place without him. Blame it on a swollen right elbow. Newport Harbor Coach Jeff Brinkley said the UC Berkeley-bound Whiteside suffered the elbow injury last week and he’s doubtful for tonight’s crucial Sunset League home game against Fountain Valley at 7. If the Sailors (4-3, 1-1 in league) upset and hand the Barons their first loss of the season, they most likely will have to do it without their senior leader.

NEWPORT BEACH — When you’re just trying to tread water, sometimes a dog paddle is more than sufficient. The Newport Harbor High boys’ basketball team rescued itself from further submersion below the .500 mark Friday with a 49-39 Sunset League win over visiting Fountain Valley. But the Sailors (11-11, 3-3 in league) still had to periodically plug their noses during stints of a game that featured 50 turnovers, shaky shooting and enough sloppiness to leave a stain.

With two balls, two strikes and two outs in a 2-2 game, the deuces truly were wild for Fountain Valley High baseball senior Daniel Patzlaff on Friday afternoon. Patzlaff, who wears jersey No. 2 for the Barons, saw a pitch he liked in the top of the fourth inning. It was down and in, but he managed to hit it out to right field. The two-run home run was — you guessed it — Patzlaff's second round-tripper of the season. And it helped the Sunset League-leading Barons earn their second win over Newport Harbor in three days, 4-2, at the Sailors' field.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY - Having picked up a key Sunset League victory Friday over Edison High, the Newport Harbor baseball team ventured to Fountain Valley on a blustery Wednesday, hoping to keep its momentum going against the league-leading Barons. The Sailors played on even terms with the third-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division 1 on a wind-whipped afternoon, but Fountain Valley put up the go-ahead run in the bottom of the fifth inning and made it stand to come away with a 3-2 victory.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Eleven days had passed since Newport Harbor High last played a Sunset League baseball game. The Sailors resumed league play on Wednesday and they continued where they left off, in a rut. A lack of offense in league has plagued Newport Harbor, which lost at Edison, 5-1. In the last 21 innings in league, one run is all the Sailors have produced. They avoided a third straight shutout in league by scoring in the final inning. Edison starter Noah Kronfly went into the seventh having thrown only 60 pitches, one led to a Sailors hit. Newport Harbor recorded its second and third hits in the seventh, before Kronfly finished things off. He improved to 5-1 and moved the Chargers (15-5, 6-2 in league)

Natalie Nielsen couldn't hold back as she walked to the plate at TeWinkle Park. One of her favorite songs played in the background and she started to move and groove. By the time she arrived to the batter's box, the 19-year-old was shaking her bottom and hips, sliding to the left and sliding to the right with her bat in her hands and her body moving to the song, "Cha Cha Slide. " There's a famous line from the entertaining movie, "A League of Their Own," - "There's no crying in baseball.

A decade ago, Salwa Rizkalla reached out to the management of a promising young dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, in hopes that she could snag her as a guest artist for her Fountain Valley-based troupe. The answer turned out to be a yes - which resulted in an ongoing relationship. Gillian Murphy, who will dance the title role in Festival Ballet Theatre's upcoming production of "Giselle" at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, has been a regular guest with the company since she first appeared in 2005 as Kitri in "Don Quixote.

Corona del Mar High senior girls' soccer goalie Kendall Mulvaney said she knew Fountain Valley was going to shoot to the right - her left - in the shootout. It worked the first time the teams played, in late December when the Barons won a consolation game at the North Orange County Classic via shootout. But Friday night at Jim Scott Stadium, Mulvaney, the four-year varsity player, was ready. And, while CdM surely has a long way to go on its quest for its first-ever CIF title, the Sea Kings just as surely have been giving their fans their money's worth in the last three games.

BOY'S BASKETBALL Newport Harbor 72, Fountain Valley 65 FOUNTAIN VALLEY — Senior guard Nic Sargeant had 27 points to match a season high, and added 10 rebounds Friday to help the visiting Sailors clinch one of the Sunset League's three automatic berths into the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Newport Harbor (14-11, 5-3 in league) is in third place, one game back of second-place Edison. Los Alamitos is in first at 8-0. With two games left next week, the Sailors have to win out and hope Edison loses once to share second place with the Chargers.

It has been an interesting season for the Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team, to say the least. Upsetting Corona del Mar, 3-2, in the Battle of the Bay game in December was certainly a highlight. It was Newport's first win in the rivalry series in four years. But days before that win, junior forward Gema Sanchez broke her fibula. And days after that win freshman sensation Sianna Siemonsma, up to that point the team's leading scorer, fractured her ankle. The loss of firepower before the Sunset League began has hurt the Sailors, who sit at 0-3-3 in league with four games remaining.
