In the desert, in triple-digit heat, and on asphalt, Nic Sargeant has the urge to play basketball. He misses the sport that much. Sargeant is spending spring break in La Quinta, where he and a half dozen of his closest friends rented out a house with a pool. A volleyball net is set up in the back, but if it were up to Sargeant, there would also be a portable basketball goal. Sargeant last suited up for the Newport Harbor High boys' basketball team on Feb. 21. Almost two months have passed since the Sailors' season ended in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 2AA playoffs.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Newport Harbor High is on spring break, yet it sure doesn't feel like it for the baseball team. For the second time in three days, the Sailors played Huntington Beach, the top-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 poll. And for the second time, the Oilers shut Newport Harbor out. The host Oilers won, 4-0, and improved to 7-0 in Sunset League play. They got a head start to their spring break, which is next week. The spring break for the Sailors ends this week.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Welcome to the Newport Harbor High boys' tennis season, where one of the top doubles players in Southern California can team with a football player. It happened Thursday at Marina High. Newport junior Reese Stalder, ranked No. 4 in Southern California in boys' 18 doubles and No. 7 in singles, teamed up with tennis novice Garrett Hall, a senior running back and safety in football. Stalder and Hall did well, sweeping for the Sailors at No. 3 doubles. Hall's mom, Cheryl, told her son that he should get something signed by Stalder that will be valuable when he's famous one day. "I'll probably get my shoe signed by the end of the season," Garrett Hall said.

There was a buzz at Newport Harbor High on Tuesday. The bees swarming the visiting dugout in the top of the fifth inning didn't create all of it. All the rage was the triple play Huntington Beach turned in the bottom of the fourth, helping the Oilers dodge yet another offensive threat. In the next inning, bees forced all the Oilers to drop to the ground in the dugout, and the batter on deck and the one in the batter's box. The bees appeared to have posed more of a hindrance to the Oilers than the Sailors did. No one on the Oilers' side got stung, just the Sailors when it came to their inability to produce with runners in scoring position.

Even with a very young squad this year and rough preseason results, the Newport Harbor High softball team may still be the class of the Newport-Mesa district. The Sailors continued building their case for that Thursday. Freshman pitcher Sammy Del Toro recorded both her first win and first save of the season and the Sailors hung on to edge Estancia, 10-9, in a nonleague game at Newport Harbor High. "Any win is good," said Newport Harbor Coach Russell Hartman after his team improved to 2-11-1.

Part of the deal for Bryan Cottriel to take over the Newport Harbor High boys' volleyball program involved one man. Cottriel wasn't going to take the Sailors' head coaching job without Dan Glenn assisting him. Glenn sits right next to Cottriel during matches. There used to be a time when Cottriel helped Glenn. Glenn stepped down as coach of the boys' program three seasons ago, right after the Sailors claimed their third undefeated Sunset League crown in four years. Glenn, who began coaching the boys in 1986, walked away from a successful run. The next coach lasted two seasons, each time Newport Harbor placed second in league.

The biggest crowd in years showed up to Tuesday's Newport Harbor High girls' lacrosse game at Davidson Field. The league game against Yorba Linda was billed as Newport Harbor's "Game of the Month. " The Sailors took care of business, 9-5, and a dance followed at the field. It didn't last long, though, until the police came. "It was an outside dance, so we had the DJ and speakers and stuff," Newport Harbor senior captain Alex Palmer said. "It was only about 8:15 or 8:20 [p.m.]
