On the 20-yard line, before the opening kickoff at Newport Harbor High, someone dressed as a Highlander played the bagpipes. The Sailors almost ended up burying the rest of the Highlanders from La Habra early on Friday night. Fifteen minutes into the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs, Newport Harbor jumped out to a 21-point lead. Every play the Sailors drew up through the air worked against the top seed. The only other time La Habra trailed by 21 points was two months ago, when it lost to Mission Viejo, which is ranked No. 5 in the state by CalHiSports.com.

When Olga Cammer started her teaching career a decade ago, she wasn't thinking much about accolades. The Costa Mesa resident had wanted to teach since she was in the sixth grade, and when she scored a position at Sierra Vista School in La Habra, she considered it a dream fulfilled. "This is natural to me," said Cammer, who lives on the Westside. "I'm not trying to be the superstar." A week ago, that changed, as Cammer was named one of Orange County's five teachers of the year.
