PALOS VERDES - For the first four-and-a-half minutes Saturday of a CIF Southern Section Division 1 girls water polo quarterfinal, Newport Harbor was struggling to solve the puzzle that was Palos Verdes junior goalie Carley Radov. The Sailors could not seem to find a seam against the long-armed, quick-reacting goalie. Lobs hit the crossbar, hard shots found her fingers, even pump-fake shot attempts didn't work. But with 3:29 left in the first quarter, Newport Harbor patiently found a way to crack the code that was Radov, who made 11 saves, thanks to a goal by Avery Peterson.

NEWPORT BEACH — Judging only by the standings, a sixth-place showing at the Corona del Mar All-American Tournament might look like a disappointment for the host Sea Kings. But considering the competition at a tournament with the best girls’ tennis teams in California, Corona del Mar High Coach Brian Ricker couldn’t be too disappointed. “The team is getting better,” Ricker said. “The girls are playing better; the doubles are getting more consistent.

PALOS VERDES ESTATES - As members of the Corona del Mar High boys' tennis team finished off their nonleague match at Palos Verdes on Wednesday, they naturally were hungry. Palos Verdes parents were grilling burgers near the tennis court. Some of the CdM players were a bit apprehensive at first, wondering if they should pay for their meal. The burgers turned out to be on the house for the players. They probably tasted a bit more delicious after a big win. Corona del Mar dominated the battle of the teams with Sea Kings as a mascot, cruising to a 14-4 victory.

NEWPORT BEACH - Late in the third quarter of Saturday's nonleague game against Palos Verdes, the Newport Harbor High girls' water polo had built a comfortable 10-goal lead. "Everyone out except for Carolyn," Sailors Coach Bill Barnett said, leaving in junior Carolyn Smith and inserting seniors Annie Kinney, Hailey Shaw, Kirsten Pearson, Brenna Barrios, Charlotte Martin and goalie Lindsey Richardson. "Team Beta" was in full effect for Newport Harbor. Kinney, who plans to walk on at Indiana University, said the Sailors' reserves came up with the name for themselves last summer.

NEWPORT BEACH - Jeff Brinkley has coached many high school football games during his 36 years. Twenty-eight of those have been spent at Newport Harbor, where he has guided several kids with the same last name, just in different years. It was fitting that on a Thursday night Brinkley won his 250th career game as a coach he did so because of two familiar family names. Quest Truxton and Brett Beaudette, whose brothers played for Brinkley in the past, came through down the stretch for the Sailors.

IRVINE ? The weight doesn't bother them. The members of Corona del Mar High's girls' water polo team have strong legs. They can propel themselves out of the water to block shots and score goals despite opponents clinging on. So the pressure that sits squarely on their shoulders to win a fifth straight CIF Southern Section title ? it would be four consecutive in Division II ? is not a burden. Continuing to display a powerful counterattack, Corona del Mar proved it was up to the task of defending its title, plowing into the championship game with a 17-3 rout of Palos Verdes on Friday at Heritage Park.

Around the start of Thursday's nonleague match, Palos Verdes High boys' tennis coach Danny Moscovici had a question for Corona del Mar Coach Jamie Gresh. Moscovici inquired about the whereabouts of CdM junior Chaz Downing, an integral part of the teams that reached the CIF Southern Section Division 1 title match each of the last two years. Gresh said that Downing is not playing high school tennis this season, choosing to focus on junior tournaments. Palos Verdes took advantage at the CdM courts, winning seven singles sets to post a 10-8 victory in the battle of schools with Sea Kings as mascots.

CORONA DEL MAR - The lineup has been pretty stable for the Corona del Mar High boys' tennis team early in the season. Coach Brian Ricker has had to make relatively few changes. On Wednesday, he did move junior Alec Adamson from singles to doubles due to a sore right shoulder. The move worked out fine. Nobody had to shoulder too much of the load as the Sea Kings earned a big nonleague victory. Everyone won two sets as CdM, ranked No. 3 in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 coaches' poll, earned a 12-6 home victory over No. 5 Palos Verdes.
