The mix-and-match format combined players from the '70s through 2002 into 10 three- or four-man teams that played five half-court games.

The 20th Toshiba Classic will be mostly remembered for Fred Couples' second time winning the event, as he surprised many with his victory by one stroke. But the Toshiba Classic will be a great memory for much different reasons for Thomas Terry, a Newport Harbor High senior. The 17-year-old, who plays on the Sailors boys' golf team, worked as the caddy for P.H. Horgan III, who qualified for the tournament March 10. Horgan tied for third at the qualifier after he shot four-under-par 67 at Goose Creek Golf Course in Mira Loma.

This past weekend, with warm weather and gale force Santa Ana winds forecast for the morning and diminishing by the afternoon, racers cautiously prepared for Saturday's 14 Mile Bank Race. Fortunately, the devil winds were subsiding as race time approached, with 25 boats showing up for the start. Even with the lingering threat of gale force winds, the thought of a 20- to 25-knot run out the 14 Mile Bank was exhilarating. How we would have worked our way back upwind to the finish line would have proved challenging.

It would be more dramatic to think of a tennis racquet gathering dust in Natalie Raney's home. But in reality there are no tennis racquets. There isn't even tennis apparel or tennis merchandise there. To put it simply, when it comes to tennis for Raney: love really does mean nothing. Raney, formerly Natalie Braverman, has a much different life now. For 17 years, basically all of her youth, tennis consumed her life. But now she's all about real estate and her marriage. The former Newport Harbor High tennis standout who excelled at Pepperdine did gain lasting qualities from the sport and she applies those characteristics today.

The volleyball season never seems to end for a 7-footer from Newport Beach. For Kevin Rakestraw, it finally wrapped up last week. He boarded a plane to complete a long, taxing year. There isn't enough legroom for someone his size to relax on a flight before his final tournament. He would need two rows of seats taken out to stretch out those long limbs of his. For Rakestraw's sake, the flight wasn't too long. He traveled with his Balboa Bay Volleyball Club Hurley under-18 team to Reno, Nev., to compete at the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships.
