NEWPORT BEACH - Righty against lefty, junior against freshman. The Battle of the Bay softball game turned into a pitcher's duel Tuesday at Bonita Creek Park. Newport Harbor junior Hattie Marshall and Corona del Mar freshman Sydney McKeown matched each other nearly pitch for pitch. Newport-Mesa Girls' Softball hosted the game. Plenty of young girls in Newport-Mesa uniforms watched the teams fail in their quests to put up crooked numbers on the nonexistent scoreboard. This was not the blowout of years past.

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 — The scoreboard went out before the start of the second half of Newport Harbor High's season opener. For the Sailors' sake, they did not really have to put up numbers on their scoreboard again. The defense and special teams bailed Newport Harbor out of trouble on numerous occasions on the football field Thursday night. Special teams recorded a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Sailors enough points to beat Trabuco Hills. Newport Harbor added a touchdown late as it won, 17-6, making it eight straight years the Sailors have kicked off the season with a victory.

Brinkley explained his team's 35-7 setback on Friday night. "They were more motivated," Brinkley said of the Oilers. "They were more motivated than we were.

NEWPORT BEACH - In less than a 24-hour period, the Newport Harbor High boys' volleyball team played its toughest two matches of the season. The Sailors faced rival Corona del Mar, the No. 2-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Division 2 poll, on Monday. They had Manhattan Beach Mira Costa, the No. 3-ranked team in Division 1, on Tuesday. That is a tough back-to-back draw, but Newport Harbor Coach Steve Astor said he loves to play the best teams. The Sailors swept their first test on Monday by claiming the Orange County Championships Division 1 title on a neutral site.

NEWPORT BEACH — The Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team was on fire for the first few minutes of Thursday's Aliso Cup game. The Sailors were taking it to visiting Palos Verdes, creating several scoring opportunities. Coach Larry Draluck called it "amazing" soccer. Senior midfielder Natalie Swift said the team "killed it" at the beginning of the game. But the Sea Kings didn't panic. Newport Harbor somehow lost its edge and lost, 3-1, in the pool-play game at Newport Harbor High.

NEWPORT BEACH - Larry Draluck is in his fifth year as the head coach of the Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team. The Sailors are aiming for their second straight CIF Southern Section Division I playoff appearance. They're also making something more intangible, but every bit as valuable - a winning culture. "If we can make the playoffs two years in a row, we've established some continuity here and an expectation of excellence," Draluck said. "In my first few years, that didn't exist.

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.
