Newport Harbor High sophomore Haley Martinez and freshman Sammy Del Toro have split the pitching innings pretty evenly this year for the Sailors softball team. Two-time Newport-Mesa Player of the Year Hattie Marshall, now at Concordia University, is no longer in the circle for the Sailors. Martinez and Del Toro have shouldered the load. Before the biggest game of the season so far, Martinez made a request to Coach Russell Hartman. "Haley is the upperclassman of the two," Hartman said.

Shaun Vetrovec took the mound for Newport Harbor High and he kept the baseball team in the game for six innings on Wednesday. That's what an ace like Vetrovec is supposed to do. The host Sailors trailed Edison by one run going into the top of the seventh inning. Vetrovec came back out and got the first batter to ground out. The next one singled to left field, and a fielding error allowed the Chargers to turn a one-run game into a three-run lead. Edison stringed together four singles off Vetrovec in the seventh, two for runs, ending the right-hander's day and the Sailors' chances of coming back.

Shaun Vetrovec's game ended on Friday, and he joined the rest of his Newport Harbor High teammates on the bus. They waited for their coach, Evan Chalmers, to wrap up interviews. Unlike most of the Sailors, Vetrovec had a long weekend ahead of him, filled with more baseball. Vetrovec planned to head out to Tempe, Ariz., with his father Bob later that night to catch a couple of spring training games. For the past seven years, Vetrovec and his dad have made the road trip to watch the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim before the season starts.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Evan Chalmers coached Newport Harbor High in a Sunset League baseball game for the first time in five seasons on Friday. He was happy to be back, not so much with his team's start to league. Early on, the Sailors missed chances to jump on host Huntington Beach. Chalmers saw a runner on second base get doubled up after he didn't try to get back to the bag on a line drive to third base. In the next inning, that same player struck out with the bases loaded. The Oilers took the lead in the bottom of the second inning and they went on to open league with a convincing 8-4 win. They are talented, with a half dozen players committed to NCAA Division I programs.

The reason why Newport Harbor High senior Eddie Nolan, a football player, decided to join the boys' tennis team was simple enough. "It's good to be kept busy," Nolan said Tuesday at The Tennis Club Newport Beach, where the Sailors were playing Sage Hill. "Coach K [Kristen Case] is a great coach, too. " What Case's Sailors have this year is three great additions to the squad. Nolan, a linebacker and defensive end, and senior running back/safety Garrett Hall decided to take up tennis.

When Evan Chalmers became aware about the opening for a baseball head coach at Newport Harbor High he said he applied right away. He wanted another chance to lead the Sailors, as he did four years ago before he was abruptly let go without given a reason. A little more than two months ago, Chalmers, who remained a teacher at Harbor and worked as an assistant for rival Corona del Mar's baseball team, was put in charge of the Sailors' baseball team once again. Since then he grew more excited to lead a team that features two Division I-bound pitchers.

Getting three sevens can be enough to win a sizable amount of money on a slot machine in Las Vegas. For the Newport Harbor High girls' water polo team, three upset wins as the No. 7 seed equals the jackpot. The Sailors indeed entered the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs as the No. 7 seed after late-season losses to Foothill, Corona del Mar and Los Alamitos. But after beating No. 2 Foothill, 5-4, in the quarterfinals and No. 6 Santa Barbara, 11-10, in the semifinals, the Sailors find themselves in the Division 1 title match for the third straight year.
