NEWPORT BEACH - Outside of the Newport Harbor High gym, a woman gave Huntington Beach Coach Craig Pazanti two gifts. She handed him special drinks. "I don't know what it is," Pazanti said of the yellow liquid in the plastic bottles. "I don't ask either. " Pazanti likes the drink so much he could've bathed in it Friday night. It was time for him and his boys' volleyball team to celebrate. The Oilers preferred a drink made of mangoes, peaches and oranges to Gatorade after they rallied to win the outright Sunset League title.

In 28 years as a coach, Dan Glenn can count on three fingers the number of times he has received a red card during a Newport Harbor High girls' volleyball match. Glenn earned the third one on Tuesday in a crucial Sunset League match against Huntington Beach. He let his emotions get the best of him shortly after the head referee gave him a yellow card in the third set. The yellow card warned Glenn to settle down after he argued that a ball went out. The red card gave the Oilers a point and forced an animated Glenn to coach from his chair.

COSTA MESA - Members of the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer team said Friday that there's pressure with being the top seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs. CdM has never won a section title in girls' soccer. At a school that only puts up banners in the gymnasium for CIF championships, the girls' soccer program is not included. The Sea Kings have to win four playoff games just to get in position to make that history. On Friday at Jim Scott Stadium, a physical Huntington Beach side tried to derail those plans from the start by pulling off a big upset.

Chuck Finley, a former Major League star pitcher best known for his time with the Angels, says he likes to keep himself busy these days. The 49-year-old Newport Beach resident enjoys playing in charity golf events. He's all for doing autograph signing events, like the one he did Saturday at the new Dick's Sporting Goods in Huntington Beach. Finley also spends time working with young pitchers and helps them develop to hopefully pursue an opportunity on the college level. Some of the young hurlers are friends' kids, he said.
