Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - Like a good fly fisherman, Tony Melum baits his opponent, then catches them in the wry. Melum, a Newport Harbor High senior in the fall, scored from all angles as the 6-foot-6 forward led the hosts to an easy 87-55 victory Friday over Morro Bay in the opening round of the George Yardley Summer Cage Classic. "My philosophy is, if I can make a few shots and get people to come out on me, I can then go around them and make a few dunks," said Melum, a second-team All-CIF Southern Section Division I performer last winter.

Lightning girls' tennis team defeats Morro Bay, 14-4, Thursday to earn a chance to play for the CIF Southern Section Division V title.NEWPORT BEACH -- Making comparisons between tennis and football would seem like a tough task. But Sage Hill School girls' tennis coach A.G. Longoria found a way to slip it in following his team's 14-4 CIF Southern Section Division V semifinal victory over Morro Bay on Thursday at the Balboa Bay Club Racquet Club. "We're like USC; we feel like the championship is ours to lose," Longoria said, comparing his tennis squad with the Trojans football team, ranked No. 1 in the nation.

Bradley Fisher knew all along that the No. 1 singles spot on the Estancia High boys' tennis team would be his this season, after spending last year at No. 2 singles.

He lost just one set in the Orange Coast League and led the Eagles to the league championship, their second straight after going undefeated in the Golden West League last year. He also won the league singles title, beating teammate Danny O'Neil, 6-7 (4-7), 7-5, 6-0, on May 2 at Laguna Beach High.

ARROYO GRANDE -- Costa Mesa High's softball team split two games in the consolation bracket to wrap up play in the Arroyo Grande Tournament Saturday. The Mustangs came back from a 3-0 first-inning deficit and held off Morro Bay to win, 5-4, in the morning. Mesa sophomore Paulina Rodriguez knocked home Uyen Mai for the go-ahead run in the fifth inning. Mai had singled to lead off the inning. Rodriguez then threw out a runner attempting to stretch a single into a double in the top of the sixth and starter Jane-E Yamamoto got the final out for her second victory.

COSTA MESA — If the Estancia High boys tennis team could be compared to the characters of the HBO television series "Entourage," singles standouts Bradley Fisher, Danny O'Neil and Ely Zaidler might all be considered the Vinces of the ensemble. The Eagles' doubles teams, whose star power dims considerably, may be relegated to the roles of Eric, Turtle and Drama in the lineup. But, when it comes to the Eagles' run through the CIF Southern Section Division IV playoffs, Coach Rachel de los Santos believes her doubles players are anything but hangers on. "We can always count on our singles," said de los Santos, after the Eagles swept nine singles sets in a 13-5 first-round win over visiting Morro Bay on Thursday.

Ahoy. I promised to follow up on my voyage to Alameda in San Francisco Bay with you this week. We arrived there on Wednesday -- Sept. 11. Well, Chad Bolken, 1st officer, and I departed Newport at 2:30 p.m., finding good cruising conditions northbound in the San Pedro Channel. We had a beautiful crescent moon that night before the fog bank at 1 a.m. at Point Conception, where, as I predicted, the seas became a mixed set from the south and northwest, making it feel like being in a washing machine.

The fall months were unseasonably warm on the Estancia High campus, due in large part to how the Eagles' girls' athletic teams fared. All four teams advanced to the postseason, with the golf, tennis, cross country and volleyball squads outdoing their predecessors. It took an at-large berth but the cross country team made it to the CIF Southern Section finals on Nov. 19 at Mt. San Antonio College for the first time since 2000. The Eagles were carried by junior Sydney Barloon's third-place finish in a time of 19 minutes, 23 seconds.

Ahoy. Watch out this Sunday, as there will be lasers in the harbor everywhere -- Laser sailboats, I mean. The Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce's Commodores Club, of which I am a member, will host the 68th annual Flight of the Lasers, a race inside Newport Harbor. Once again, Commodore Seymour Beek is the chairman. You may recognize the name as that of the owner of the Balboa Island Ferry Service. The regatta is open to anyone sailing a Laser, and there will be awards for the best costume, best decorated boat, first parent-and-child team and first married couple.
