MANHATTAN BEACH — Early on in the football season, Newport Harbor High Coach Jeff Brinkley saw a different quarterback than the one he saw in the summer. The pop on Andrew McDonald’s ball was missing. McDonald wasn’t himself. “He was a little bit sick,” Brinkley said. “It seemed like arm strength and everything, [he] was struggling a little bit, even in practice I could see it.” McDonald finally played quarterback the way Brinkley expected him to in a game.

Richard Dunn MANHATTAN BEACH - As Newport Harbor High girls volleyball coach Dan Glenn is well aware, unless you win a state championship, your season ends at some point with a defeat.

As first-year varsity players, Corona del Mar High boys' tennis coach Jamie Gresh knows that sophomores Ari Coskinas and Oliver Kim feel that extra little bit of pressure. Gresh saw improvement in that area from his No. 3 doubles team during Thursday's nonleague match against Mira Costa. Coskinas and Kim won two sets and nearly swept. "Just getting on the board first with a win kind of set the tone for their day," Gresh said. "They're settling down, not getting so nervous in these matches.

In a span of nine offensive plays, everything fell apart for Newport Harbor High. Coach Jeff Brinkley saw two players jump early, then one slipped and fell on his butt during a pass, another dropped a pass that hit him in the numbers, and the last player fumbled the ball. All of the gaffes cost the Sailors any chance of coming back late on Friday night. The Sailors' bid to win consecutive games for the first time this season ended with a 33-21 setback to Manhattan Beach Mira Costa.

Lauren Thaxter knew that Wednesday's nonleague girls' tennis match against Manhattan Beach Mira Costa was important, so she definitely wanted to play all three sets. Sometimes that's easier said than done for Thaxter, a Corona del Mar High senior who has suffered from atypical migraine headaches for the past two-plus years. She only played one set in Tuesday's Pacific Coast League win over Woodbridge. But the Thaxters had a new weapon this time: oxygen. For the first time, Thaxter's mother, Jayne, brought a small black container which held an oxygen mask to the match.

MANHATTAN BEACH - With record-breaking heat in parts of Southern California on Monday, the place to be was by the beach. That's where the Corona del Mar High boys' tennis team found itself. In the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, the Sea Kings played at Manhattan Beach Mira Costa, a campus just blocks from the beach. CdM prevailed, 13-5. And, while cooling is expected throughout the week on the thermometer, the Sea Kings' semifinal matchup also promises to be hotly contested.

MANHATTAN BEACH - Leading up to Newport Harbor High's football game on Friday, Coach Jeff Brinkley said he talked to the opposing coach. Brinkley and Don Morrow, the coach at Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach, know each other well. Before their teams met for the ninth straight year, Morrow gave Brinkley some flattering words. Morrow watched the film of the Sailors' 28-7 upset win last week of San Clemente, a CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division finalist last year. "In terms of watching our film, he thought that was the game he said that really looked like our old Newport Harbor teams," Brinkley said.

NEWPORT BEACH - Coach Jeff Brinkley said his Newport Harbor High football team needed some momentum going into a difficult Sunset League schedule. The nonleague games haven't been pushovers either.
