Costa Mesa resident Gabriella Hahn said her heart broke when she drove past the corner of Adams Avenue and Mesa Verde Drive last weekend where 21-year-old former Huntington Beach Oilers pitcher Sara Noel Harris crashed the black Audi she was driving into a traffic signal. Hahn, a 32-year-old mother of two, plans to line Adams Avenue with ribbons the morning of Harris’ funeral Saturday. She hopes a family member or friend of Harris will contact her with Sara’s favorite color, so she can use that color of ribbon.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - The Estancia High boys basketball team suffered more than a nonleague loss Saturday night as senior captain and scoring leader Eliasar Maldonado was ejected at Huntington Beach High. The ejection will render him ineligible for Wednesday's Pacific Coast League opener against crosstown rival Estancia. Maldonado was thrown out immediately by one official, with whom the guard made contact as the player's momentum carried him past the completion of a play near the official in the closing minutes of a 59-48 loss, according to Estancia Coach Chris Sorce.

Chris Yemma Local surfers Ford Archbold and Allan Kincade ran into stiff competition at the Surfing America USA championships Wednesday near the Huntington Beach Pier. The competition, however, wasn't solely opposing surfers. Mother Nature failed to provide Costa Mesa's Kincade, 16, the right waves at the right time during his third round in the boys under-18 division, and he was bumped to a consolation round later in the day. He placed fourth in his consolation heat to conclude his competition in the event.

When most people see TJ Defalco play volleyball they get caught up in the way the Huntington Beach High outside hitter can jump high and hit so hard. They are amazed to find out he's only a junior and begin to think how great he and the Oilers will be next year. Never mind 2015. The scary thought is that unbeaten Huntington Beach is only going to get better this season. Playing with their No. 3 setter, Davis Gillett, who is a backup libero, the Oilers swept Corona del Mar, 25-23, 25-17, 26-24, to capture the OC Championships Division 1 title Monday at Edison High.

NEWPORT BEACH — The student cheering section at Newport Harbor High taunted Haleigh Hampton every time she stepped to the service line Saturday night. Hampton did her best to ignore the chants, which included “Shaq.” It’s expected when you’re 6-foot-6. But Newport Harbor Coach Dan Glenn devised a much more effective plan to take away the Huntington Beach High middle blocker in the CIF State Division I Southern California Regional semifinal, which ended with the Sailors sweeping, 25-16, 25-19, 25-15.

If the Orange Coast College baseball team is to take another step forward this season, it will do so on the strength of some pitchers who are bounce-backs from four-year programs. Coach John Altobelli enters his 17th season at the Pirates’ helm on the heels of back-to-back appearances in the Southern California Super Regionals, including a 32-15-1 season in 2008 in which OCC finished second in the rugged Orange Empire Conference. The Pirates were picked to finish third, behind Santa Ana and Cypress, respectively, in this year’s preseason coaches’ poll.

NEWPORT BEACH — Two days after allowing one top-notch player to score six goals, Huntington Beach High couldn't afford to do so again in the postseason. Newport Harbor's Sarah Roberts showed why Thursday. Roberts recorded a season-high six goals, as the senior led the fourth-seeded Sailors past the Oilers, 10-2, in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs. Huntington Beach Coach Stalin Reyes expected Roberts to be a factor. And the two-meter player bound for Michigan burned the Oilers.

HUNTINGTON BEACH ? All week long tailback Michael Helfrich was hearing one thing from those who would block for him on Friday night. "Just run hard, don't stop moving your feet." The sophomore, who started the season as the fourth-string running back on the Newport Harbor High team, listened to those with more experience than himself. And in what could be the team's final game of the season Helfrich ran for 281 yards and three touchdowns as the Sailors won their season finale over Sunset League foe Fountain Valley, 35-14, Friday at Huntington Beach High.
