SANTA ANA — Early in the season, the results of the matches are fairly insignificant to the Newport Harbor High girls' tennis team. True, the Sailors (2-0) eased to a 16-2 win at former Sea View League foe Foothill (1-2) on Wednesday. But Sailors Coach Fletcher Olson has high hopes for Newport Harbor, which won its third consecutive league title last year but lost in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs. Even in a lopsided victory over a Foothill team that started just one senior, there were things to work on as the Sailors — now in the Sunset League — search for their team identity.

The Newport Harbor High football team's road to the Sunset League begins with some return trips through its familiar Sea View League neighborhoods. The Sailors, coming off an 11-3 season that ended with a CIF Southern Section Division VI title, open their 2006 campaign by visiting former Sea View rival Aliso Niguel tonight at 7. The Wolverines, who opened last week with a 22-15 win over Westminster, defeated the Sailors last year, 24-21, and have won twice in a row at home against the Tars.

The Newport Harbor High girls' volleyball team has never missed the playoffs in Dan Glenn's 20 years as coach. This year, Glenn said it'll be tough — but it has little to do with how talented the Sailors actually are. Newport Harbor is now in the Sunset League, a league that includes powerhouses like Los Alamitos and Esperanza, along with Edison, Fountain Valley and Marina. Los Alamitos and Esperanza are the defending CIF Southern Section Division I-A and Division I-AA champions, respectively.

The rushing of senior Ryan Rippon and the passing of senior Tom Jackson produced 3,218 of the Newport Harbor High football team's 4,535 yards from scrimmage last season. Replacing that production is one of the challenges the Sailors face this season as they go from the Sea View League to the Sunset League, and from CIF Southern Section Division VI to the Pac-5 Division, formerly Division I. The Sailors, who went 11-3 last season, were CIF Division VI champions, after earning one-third of the Sea View League crown.

For the second consecutive year, the Newport Harbor High girls' golf team will be very young. Still, seventh-year coach Scott Tarnow said he expects improvement from last year, when the Sailors were winless against Sea View League foes. "We should be better than last year," Tarnow said. "It's good to get some girls who want to go out there and play. We just have a really, really young team. We don't have much senior leadership." In fact, the team has only one senior — Taylor Funk.

It must be a little unnerving to wake up one day as kings of both the Sea View League and CIF Southern Section Division VI, and the next day as just another squad trying to keep up with the perennial powers in the Sunset League and Division I, which is now called the Pac-5 Division. But when the CIF Southern Section approved the final Orange County releaguing proposal in October, 2005, it meant different futures for different schools. Now, football teams get to experience firsthand, for better or worse, what the changes mean to them.

With 11 strong runners contending for the seven varsity spots available on the Newport Harbor High boys' cross country team. Coach Nowell Kay said this might be the most competitive unit in his five seasons as coach. With all the runners at the same level, it makes for a competitive process. "It works itself out," said Kay, who is glad he can just look down at his stopwatch to determine who the top seven runners are. "It depends on who puts the races together." Nobody is safe, not even the team's two seniors, captains Sean Anderson and Chris Lewis.

Few teams can lose their best athlete to graduation and come back the next season beaming with confidence. The Newport Harbor High girls cross country team did just that. Whitney Blue is now running at Arizona State and with her she took second- and sixth-place finishes in the CIF Southern Section Division II meet and state championships, respectively. She also leaves holding the school record with a time of 16 minutes, 33 seconds, posted at the Sea View League finals. With the remaining six runners from the section title team returning, Coach Eric Tweit, who is entering his 18th season at the Sailors' helm, said his team is improved.

The Newport Harbor High football team said adios to CIF Southern Section Division VI in grand fashion last fall, capturing the school's third CIF title. The Sailors, who move to CIF Division I this season, were the only Newport Harbor boys' team to capture a CIF championship during the 2005-06 school year. But it was not the only team to reach a high level of success. The water polo and basketball squads also captured the imagination of their fans with their inspired play, and senior Bo Taylor of the track and field team was among the athletes who accomplished some amazing individual feats.

When it comes to Newport Harbor High's year in girls' sports, you don't even have to get out of the pool and dry yourself off to find out who made the biggest splash. The Newport Harbor girls' water polo team, far and away, made the biggest waves, garnered the most titles and awards and further established itself as a perennial power in CIF Southern Section's Division I. The Sailors were led by Leah Robertson, who was named Co-MVP of the Sea View League. Robertson also was named the CIF Southern Section Division I Player of the Year.
