Tony Altobelli CORONA DEL MAR - It's just one step in a journey toward the CIF Southern Section and State Championships, but for Corona del Mar High's boys volleyball team, a 15-8, 15-0, 15-10 win over visiting Huntington Beach was definitely a step in the right direction.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — When Chris Ramsey moved his family to Newport Coast from Greenwich, Conn. last year he definitely had the right idea. That’s because he knew USA Water Polo was moving, too, ready to make history. It took a year, but Wednesday, USA Water Polo formally announced that it will base operations in Huntington Beach, marking the first time in the history of the Olympic movement that a U.S. Olympic National Governing Body will locate its national headquarters in California.

COSTA MESA — For the first 24 minutes, the Costa Mesa High football team was engaged in a dogfight against Huntington Beach on Friday night at Orange Coast College. Even as the Oilers (3-0) piled on points in the second half, Costa Mesa Coach Jeremy Osso walked away encouraged, shrugging off the eventual 41-7 loss that dropped the Mustangs to 0-3. "I don't think the score indicates how good of a game we played tonight," Osso said. "One of their touchdowns came with a minute left, two were big runs and two were set up by us. I think this is a huge turning point for our team, that now our guys realize they can hang with the big boys."

While the Newport Harbor High girls’ volleyball team went through warm-up drills last week at Cypress College, several Los Alamitos fans heckled the players.

It was clear that Los Al’s following outmanned Newport Harbor’s early on at Cypress College. Coach Dan Glenn used the teasing as motivation for his players.

Cheryl Newton has visited people in the hospital for years, both as a volunteer at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian and through her church. A few months ago, she realized an occasional visit didn't cut it for some people. First, the Huntington Beach resident met a woman at a nursing home who suffered from dementia and who had fallen twice trying to get out of bed — breaking her arm the first time, her hip the second time, in part because the home lacked enough staff to look after her. Soon after, a 90-year-old member of Newton's family fell while trimming a tree in his front yard, and had to call for a neighbor to take him to the emergency room.

The defense did the rest as the Sailors repeated as winners of the Los Angeles Field Hockey Assn. Tournament of Champions, 1-0 over Huntington Beach at Edison High.
