Scheduled to stop at Newport Harbor High tonight at 7 was a train. The Sailors don’t have to worry about a 6-foot-4, 230-pound running back from Loyola of Los Angeles in their home opener. Anthony Barr broke his ankle last week and won’t be available when the Sailors (1-0) play host to the Cubs (1-1), ranked No. 10 in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division poll. Not having to face one of the highly recruited seniors in the country on the football field is a plus for Newport Harbor.

NEWPORT BEACH — Until this month, Cedric Whitaker said he hadn’t played a football game in four years. Two games into his first season at Newport Harbor High, Whitaker is making it look easy. If you haven’t heard of No. 28, the junior transfer from San Francisco made a name for himself Thursday night. In his home debut, Whitaker rushed for 140 yards and scored three touchdowns, including an electrifying 94-yard kickoff return that swung the momentum and allowed Newport Harbor to upset Loyola, 28-14, in a nonleague game.

NEWPORT BEACH - A party is set up for Jeff Brinkley Saturday to honor his past 25 years as the coach of the Newport Harbor High football team.

What transpired is a start to a season no one has ever seen under Brinkley's watch at Newport Harbor. The Sailors have begun the year 0-2 after losing 27-0 to Loyola of Los Angeles.

When you introduce yourself as "Buzzy," what do you expect? Buzzy Yokoyama looks for the grin and then the usual reaction to his unique first name. "Is that your real name?" Yokoyama said is the first thing most people say. "I like it, so whatever. " Yokoyama's mother, Colleen, felt the same way when she told her father that her second youngest child would bear the name "Buzzy. " Colleen and Jeff wanted to name their boy after Jeff's good friend, Buzzy Kerbox, the famous surfer Jeff once sponsored.

Corona del Mar High's girls water polo team breezed to its fourth straight Pacific Coast League victory Wednesday, shelling visiting Tesoro, 15-2, behind a balanced attack and suffocating defense.

Brittney Bowlus, Jordan Anae and Katya Eadington each had two goals for CdM, which used such first-liners as Christina Hewko, Danielle Carlson and Daniela DiGiacomo sparingly.

Corona del Mar High Coach Steve Conti says he was a little bit smarter with his scheduling. Rather than start the season with Los Angeles Loyola again, he decided to push it back toward the end of it. Almost half of his boys' volleyball team plays a sport in the winter, and against Loyola, Conti preferred CdM to be at full strength. After last season's opener at Loyola, where Conti said it looked like his young Sea Kings had never played volleyball before, losing in three sets, the move made sense.

Kekai Whitford, Sage Hill School's dynamic junior, has committed to play for the Loyola Marymount University women's volleyball team, said Billy Whitford, Kekai's father. Whitford led Sage Hill to its most successful season in the fall, when the program shared the Academy League title, claimed the CIF Southern Section Division 3A title, and advanced to the CIF State Southern California Regional Division III finals. Whitford, an outside hitter at Sage Hill, earned the CIF Southern Section Division 3A Player of the Year and Academy League MVP awards after she finished with 424 kills, 350 digs and 84 service aces.

As coach of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse program, G.W. Mix doesn't get to see his two sons play in college often. He's too busy coaching, while Ryan Mix and Casey Mix are away competing. Ryan plays for the University of Notre Dame and Casey for UC Santa Barbara. Mix's boys are coming home this week and he will get to see them play in person. Dad came up with a great idea: create a college lacrosse exhibition in Orange County and invite the teams his sons play on. The event, which looks to promote lacrosse in California, took several years to pull off. The schedules worked out for all parties involved.

LOS ANGELES - Loyola of Chicago was the first first-time participant in the four-team NCAA men's volleyball championship since UC Irvine had that distinction in 2006. A lot has obviously changed for the Anteaters since that time, as they moved within one victory of their fourth national championship with a 26-24, 25-18, 29-27 semifinal win over the upstart Ramblers on Thursday at Pauley Pavilion. No. 2-seeded UCI (24-7) looked every bit the perennial power on Thursday, hitting .500 as a team for only the second time this season and bearing down late in the first and third sets to complete their fifth sweep in their last seven matches and win their fourth straight NCAA semifinal.

LOS ANGELES - The six-on-five is supposed to be an advantageous situation in water polo. But it was a weakness Tuesday for the Newport Harbor High boys' water polo team. And the host Loyola Cubs turned their man-down situations into a strength. The result was the Sailors' first bad loss of the season, an 11-8 setback at John C. Argue Swim Stadium. Newport Harbor (8-2) certainly had its chances, but failed to convert most of them. The Sailors, ranked No. 2 in CIF Southern Section Division 1, went just four of 13 on the power play.

IRVINE — UC Irvine women's soccer coach Scott Juniper said after his team's 2-0 nonconference loss to visiting Loyola Marymount on Friday that the Anteaters' problem was quality, not quantity. But still winless in its first three matches, UCI is left yearning for the quantity it desires most: victories. Goals are also becoming scarce, though the two-time defending Big West Conference regular-season champions posted an oppressive 16-6 advantage in shots, including 12-1 after halftime.
