Ernie Johnson used many motivational speeches when he coached the Newport Harbor High football team in 1970. Motivation was sorely needed. There hadn't been anything to really cheer about for 28 years. One of the speeches that seemed to stick out for many during that season was when he reminded the Sailors how the opponent felt about Newport Harbor. To paraphrase, Johnson said the other players were thinking they weren't about to be beat by some "beach (expletive). " The nickname fired up the Sailors during their championship season.

Newport Harbor High incoming sophomore Samantha Stalder won't play for the girls' tennis team this season, her mother, Diane, said Friday. Stalder played at No. 1 singles last year as a freshman for the Sailors. She made it to the quarterfinals of the Sunset League individuals tournament and is ranked No. 91 in Southern California girls' 16s by the United States Tennis Assn. The issue, Diane Stalder said, stems from the fact that her daughter wouldn't be able to make all of the practices for the Sailors this year as she trains with her private coach.

NEWPORT BEACH — Coach Kristen Case creates a motto each season for her Newport Harbor High girls' tennis team. This year's motto, displayed on a blue rubber wrist bracelet, reads: "Dominate and Defend 2010" as well as "We are Beast. " The first part of the motto is a reference to the quest for a third straight Sunset League title. The second part is a phrase Case implements to inspire toughness in her players. But it's an atmosphere of positivity that Case, in her fourth season at the helm, has created that permeates even deeper with the players.

MISSION HILLS — Newport Harbor High won the coin flip at the start of the first round of the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division playoff game at Alemany. Against a high-powered offense, Coach Jeff Brinkley said he wanted to start Friday night with the ball. The Sailors elected to receive the kickoff. They did not get the ball. Alemany attempted an onside kick and recovered it near midfield. The Warriors set the tone, keeping the ball away from the Sailors and giving it to their quarterback.

ENSENADA, MEXICO - Before lunch began, Commodore Chuck Iverson sat in the back corner of a restaurant, reviewing the guest list. It seemed a generic Newport Beach scene: place settings arranged on white tablecloths. Ocean view. Members of the Newport Ocean Sailing Assn., or NOSA, bedecked in navy blazers and khaki pants, mingling with the mayor. Still, the group hadn't valet parked their cars outside. They'd arrived by van. And they were greeted with glasses of wine, not from California, but vineyards in Mexico.

Boaters in Newport Beach don't drag their vessels out of the water for the winter. After all, chunks of ice would be hard to find floating in the harbor. No matter. Like their counterparts in less-hospitable climates, where yacht clubs shut down as snowy days loom, Southern Californians want to celebrate the tradition of opening day too. One by one, local yacht clubs are kicking off the season with traditional pomp. "It becomes more or less their hour of shine to start the season," said Morrie Willkie, commodore of the Southern California Yachting Assn.

What a game! What a game! That might be a simple way to describe what took place Wednesday night at Davidson Field, where Newport Harbor High and Marina battled in a wild and crazy boys' lacrosse game. But Sailors Coach Mark Todd probably put it best when talking about the way his guys took a much-needed 13-11 victory over the Vikings, who featured former Tars assistant Ryan Abatte as their head coach. "A perfect storm for disaster," Todd said before addressing his victorious Sailors in a post-game meeting.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY - Having picked up a key Sunset League victory Friday over Edison High, the Newport Harbor baseball team ventured to Fountain Valley on a blustery Wednesday, hoping to keep its momentum going against the league-leading Barons. The Sailors played on even terms with the third-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division 1 on a wind-whipped afternoon, but Fountain Valley put up the go-ahead run in the bottom of the fifth inning and made it stand to come away with a 3-2 victory.

Early in the season, adversity struck the Newport Harbor High boys' lacrosse team. During the first five games, the Sailors lost a starter to injury each contest, Coach Mark Todd said. There were some broken collarbones to some players, Todd said, as well as a broken hand to talented freshman midfielder Chandler Pierce, who was lost for the season. It all became challenging for the Sailors, who stumbled early in the Sunset League season as well, as some players recovered from injury and others left for spring-break trips.

Swells, whipping wind and overnight rain met sailors competing in the 67th annual Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race that that is usually a calm jaunt down the coast to Mexico. "From 6 o'clock on, it was hold on and don't fall over," said Dennis Jensch, who sailed on his boat called Patience. Jensch said winds reached up to 38 knots and the rain was harder than he had ever seen before. At its peak, he couldn't see the end of his boat.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Eleven days had passed since Newport Harbor High last played a Sunset League baseball game. The Sailors resumed league play on Wednesday and they continued where they left off, in a rut. A lack of offense in league has plagued Newport Harbor, which lost at Edison, 5-1. In the last 21 innings in league, one run is all the Sailors have produced. They avoided a third straight shutout in league by scoring in the final inning. Edison starter Noah Kronfly went into the seventh having thrown only 60 pitches, one led to a Sailors hit. Newport Harbor recorded its second and third hits in the seventh, before Kronfly finished things off. He improved to 5-1 and moved the Chargers (15-5, 6-2 in league)

The Battle of the Bay game is special in each sport, but in girls' lacrosse it's maybe just a bit more friendly. The Newport Wedge girls' lacrosse program was started eight years ago by Lauren Mulvaney and the Davin family. Players from both Corona del Mar and Newport Harbor high schools have started playing there in middle school, before moving on to high school. CdM Coach Aly Simons has coached both future Sea Kings and Sailors in the Wedge program. She and Newport Harbor Coach Matt Armstrong have a good working relationship.
