Joseph Boo LONG BEACH - Well, at least the Jackrabbits still have their dates. Meanwhile, Newport Harbor High has another match in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs on Tuesday. The visiting Sailors jumped on host Long Beach Poly early and held on for a 15-7, 15-7, 8-15, 15-9 victory Thursday in a CIF first-round match that was moved up a day because of Long Beach Poly's prom. While the Jackrabbits are dancing, Newport will find out who it will face next when favored San Clemente and Corona meet in a first-round match tonight.

LONG BEACH — Long Beach Poly High Coach Raul Lara referred to Newport Harbor’s high-scoring machine as that No. 6 kid. JB Green scored four times in four ways last week. The Jackrabbits made sure No. 6 never scored six, or for that matter the Sailors. For the third time in a little more than a 12-month span, Newport Harbor simply was no challenge for Long Beach Poly’s defense, losing 26-2 Friday night. Three weeks is how much time the Jackrabbits, ranked No. 2 in the state by CalHiSports.

CORONA DEL MAR — Coach Aaron Chaney could have been in a grumpy mood, but the smile on his face gave him away. Each year, when his Corona del Mar High girls' water polo team makes the CIF playoffs, it's been tradition for the Sea Kings — and their coaches — to wear team shirts with nicknames on the back. Chaney coached all of Thursday's CIF Southern Section Division I first-round game against Long Beach Poly, which second-seeded CdM won 13-1, with his shirt on. The shirt is white, with pink lettering that reads "Chane-saw" on the back.

Right after Newport Harbor High’s season opener last week, Brandon Kula focused on the next football game. “We start practicing for Long Beach [Poly] now,” the senior linebacker said. The Jackrabbits have been preparing the Sailors for almost three weeks. It can be a good or bad thing for the Sailors when they take the field tonight at Veterans Stadium at 7. With a lot of time off, rust can set in. But when you’re playing Long Beach Poly, ranked No. 2 in the state by CalHiSports.

One of the best parts of this job is talking to Scott Meyer, Corona del Mar High's football coach. From the first time we spoke, he was honest and he didn't have to be honest. He didn't expect my call on March 31, 2011. He had no idea who I was, but I found out CdM hired Meyer as its next football coach. I introduced myself and then asked him if he indeed was taking over at CdM. Without hesitating, Meyer said, "Yes. " He easily could've hung up, or said, "No comment," but he didn't.

Quinton Bell used to rely on a dirt bike to generate speed. In two years, he's learned how to use his own set of wheels to break away in a different sport. Bell is the fastest football player at Costa Mesa High. When he arrived last year as a junior, Bell says he felt awkward when he moved. No longer could he just straddle a bike and apply the throttle as he did when he competed in motocross. Bell strapped on a different helmet, one with bars. He began his second year of playing tackle football.

LONG BEACH - It may have looked like it, but the Long Beach Poly High football team was not simply toying with Newport Harbor in Friday night's CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division first-round playoff game. The Jackrabbits rotated their quarterbacks, seniors Nick Pope and Chaiyse Hales, alternating them in and out each quarter. This has just been part of the game plan most weeks for Coach Raul Lara's Jackrabbits. Talk about a two-headed attack. Pope and Hales finished with nearly identical stats.

Newport Harbor High girls' volleyball coach Dan Glenn says his team is still trying to find its identity. That's a scary thought, considering the Sailors are off to a 7-1 start and will play for the Dave Mohs Tournament championship Monday at 7 p.m. at Edison High. Newport Harbor has won seven straight since dropping its season opener. On Saturday, the Sailors beat four teams to advance to Monday's final, in which they'll play against Sunset League foe Los Alamitos. The Tars opened the day with a 25-20, 25-22 victory over Mission Viejo to win their pool at Newport Harbor.

Back Bay high school rivals Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar enter the CIF Southern Section Division I girls’ water polo playoffs as the No. 2 and No. 3 seed, respectively. Newport Harbor Coach Bill Barnett expected the second seed Sunday, when the section released its playoff pairings. The Sea Kings received a higher seed than they anticipated because of the Sailors’ seed. “They couldn’t put us in the same side of the bracket as Los Alamitos,” said Barnett, whose Sailors play in the Sunset League with the Griffins.

LONG BEACH — The girls’ volleyball assembly line overseen by Coach Dan Glenn at Newport Harbor High operates best at a brisk pace. Bump, set, spike, serve ... Repeat. Opposing coaches, realizing this, have been known to try to throw a wrench in the gears by limiting the availability of balls, sometimes resulting in a delay between serves that can help stifle the Sailors’ urgency and momentum. But such tactics are moot in the CIF Southern Section playoffs, in which a requirement that three balls be available facilitates no waiting at the service line.

As a neighborhood food drive coordinator and a member of the National Charity League, Kirby Burnham knows all about sharing the wealth. The Newport Harbor High senior outside hitter is making that a bit of a personal mission on the volleyball court as well this season, playing in the back row for the first time in her varsity career. “Her greatest attribute is her all-around skills,” Sailors Coach Dan Glenn said of the 6-foot-2 standout, who committed as a junior to play collegiately at USC. “She can play the right side, in the middle, and on the left side.
