ANAHEIM — Jake Fleming couldn't believe it. The Newport Harbor High senior was trying to hold off Esperanza senior Quoc Doan on Thursday in the teams' Sunset League match. Fleming watched his 5-2 games advantage trimmed to 5-4. Then, the intensity of the moment shined through after a point on Fleming's serve. He went toward the net, and Doan hit a ball back over the net. The ball wasn't hit hard but appeared to accidentally strike Fleming, who was turned around, straight in the back.

NEWPORT BEACH — In blustering cold winds, gloves were the fashion accessory of choice during Wednesday night’s Sunset League showdown between the Newport Harbor and Los Alamitos girls’ water polo teams. No gloves allowed in the pool, but the Sailors didn’t need them the way they were picking off Griffins passes. Newport Harbor had 15 steals, building an early lead and hanging on for a 6-4 victory at Newport Harbor High in a battle of the last two Sunset League unbeaten squads.

NEWPORT BEACH — Coach Jason Lynch warned Newport Harbor High before Thursday’s crucial boys’ water polo match. This Sunset League opener against Los Alamitos pretty much was for the league championship. “Being composed and not being too high and jacked up,” Lynch told his players. The Sailors forgot what Lynch said. They fell behind early and never managed to come back, losing to Los Alamitos, 7-5, at a packed Newport Harbor pool. At the end, the Griffins’ fans yelled the loudest.

NEWPORT BEACH — On the same night as the Iowa caucuses, Newport Harbor High girls’ basketball coach Randy Larson polled his players following Thursday’s 70-21 loss to Esperanza. The first-year coach said he asked his players if they thought they gave 110% in their Sunset League opener. The average vote, Larson said, was “about 55%.” “That doesn’t work against too many teams, especially against Esperanza,” Larson said. The Aztecs had their press working.

Right now Newport Harbor High's searching for an identity. Losing a dozen players to graduation can leave a boys' basketball team in a crisis. "It's going to take awhile for us to figure out who we are and who does what on this team," Newport Harbor Coach Larry Hirst said. "We just have to get used to playing with each other." The Sailors will also need to adjust to their new league, the more competitive Sunset. Two players return off last year's team that went 21-7 overall and placed second in the Sea View League.
