CYPRESS - Newport Harbor High and Los Alamitos met on the same volleyball court two years ago. What they played for back then, a CIF Southern Section Division I-AA girls' volleyball title, was also at stake Saturday. The rematch at Cypress College didn't last as long, though. The Griffins swept the Sailors, 25-17, 26-24, 25-23. The Sunset League rivals played on a neutral court again, but it sure seemed like Los Alamitos was at home. A huge student crowd came out to watch the Griffins (35-3)

NEWPORT BEACH - Coach Jeff Brinkley cannot really explain why his Newport Harbor High football team has played well against Los Alamitos in four of the last five years. The Sailors just have since rejoining the Sunset League five years ago. With the Sailors backs against the wall at home Friday night, Brinkley needed them to make it a game against the Griffins again. Not many picked the Sailors to beat the defending league champions. Eric Tweit, the school's former athletic director, came over and pointed that out to Brinkley, who was all smiles.

Shaun Vetrovec wasn't sure what to do at Newport Harbor High last week. Stay on first base or return to the batter's box? It was late, the bottom of the ninth inning against Los Alamitos. The game-winning run was on second with one out. After facing a couple of pitches, the home plate umpire told Vetrovec to take first base. Apparently, the Griffins put him on, not wanting to pitch to the clean-up hitter. He hurt them in the seventh, when he singled in the game-tying run to force extra innings.

Quest Truxton caught 12 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns last week. Afterward, Truxton said he looked inside the Newport Harbor High program to see where his performance stood in the school's record book. He found out that he couldn't compare his stats. "The only record [the program] keeps is for individual rushing yards for a game," Truxton said. "I talked to the coaches and they said the yards have to be one of the higher records for a receiver at the school. " The kind of night Truxton delivered is rare in the Sailors' run-first offense.

SANTA BARBARA - On Friday night at the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions, Corona del Mar High girls' water polo Coach Sam Bailey said his squad played like individuals instead of a team. On Saturday afternoon, Bailey saw the opposite. In fact, during a fifth-place semifinal against Los Alamitos, he saw what he said was a defining moment for his team. The player who provided the moment during a break in the action was senior Ioanna Haralabidis. "I felt that all of [my teammates]

CORONA DEL MAR - As she walked off the pool deck at Corona del Mar High on Saturday, freshman Maddie Musselman went past Los Alamitos Coach Dave Carlson. The Sea Kings had just beaten Carlson's Griffins, 7-5, in a CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal match. The longtime Los Al coach wanted to pay Musselman a compliment. "Are you the freshman?" Carlson asked Musselman, who replied, "Yeah," a bit sheepishly. "You play like a senior," Carlson said. Musselman stepped up with two goals for CdM. Senior Stephania Haralabidis also scored twice and had two nice assists in the fourth quarter, to senior Genevieve Weed and junior Marina Coskinas.
