NEWPORT BEACH — Coming into the year, Hamilton Day heard the doubters. “A lot of people didn’t think that we were going to live up to last year’s team,” Day said. “We just want to prove them wrong.” The Newport Harbor High boys’ volleyball team is one Sunset League win away from doing so. The Sailors are almost there to being perfect again in league. Newport Harbor clinched its second straight outright league championship and Day made sure of it Tuesday.

NEWPORT BEACH — Before Monday’s game against Los Alamitos High, a message snaked its way through the internal dialogue of the Newport Harbor football collective. “Back, meet wall.” There it was again, Monday night, as the Davidson Field scoreboard ticked down from 1 minute, 37 seconds. And that was enough. Down 27-24 with 1:37 left in regulation, the Tars drove 62 yards in 56 seconds for the game-winning touchdown, a five-yard run up the middle by junior wide receiver JB Green.

NEWPORT BEACH — Because of one loss, 20 minutes have suddenly become a lifeline for Newport Harbor High’s postseason hopes. The Sailors’ girls’ soccer team fell, 3-2, to Marina Thursday night, which now puts even more emphasis on a make-up overtime the Sailors will play Jan. 24 at Esperanza. Los Alamitos, ranked first in CIF Southern Section Division I, and No. 3 Esperanza are thought to be sure bets for the top two playoff spots in the Sunset League, leaving Marina, Newport Harbor, Edison, and Fountain Valley to battle it out for the third berth.

NEWPORT BEACH — Newport Harbor High junior Lauren Draganza set a school record and earned medalist honors by shooting a one-under-par 35 to lead the Sailors to a 223-241 win against Los Alamitos in a Sunset League opener at Big Canyon Country Club Tuesday. “The last record for a league event at Big Canyon was even par,” said Newport Harbor Coach Scott Tarnow, who’s in his ninth year. “If she had parred the last hole [and not bogeyed it], she would’ve tied the school record for both boys and girls in a league event at that course.

LOS ALAMITOS ? Newport Harbor High's girls volleyball match Tuesday ended in defeat. It was the Sailors' first loss in five Sunset League matches. But neither fact was the most troubling part of the result. The deeper horror: the Sailors' loss to Los Alamitos was a sweep, 25-18, 27-25, 25-19. In a league that features the defending Division I state champion in Los Alamitos, CIF Southern Section Division I-AA champion Esperanza and Division II-AA quarterfinalist Edison, a loss along the way is just short of expected.

When you swim competitively, time isn’t on your side. You can say time almost ran out on David Linden in the pool. No more rising early for those 6 a.m. practices at Newport Harbor High. No more 90-minute workouts. For Linden, it was time to sleep like most students before school. The only race Linden cared about finishing was high school. Linden was midway there in his senior year. So enough of returning to the same pool, where Linden trained for many hours, only to fall short of his ultimate goal in November in his favorite sport, water polo.

Newport Harbor High is, admittedly, a water polo school that also competes in swimming. But the water polo seniors this year are trading in two-meter set and shots, for split-times and strokes. They're sticking around for swim season. Four of Newport Harbor's five water polo seniors — Bryce McLain, Blake Hockenbury, Kyle McGhie and Nick Yeager — are also competing on the Sailors' boys swimming team. "When it comes down to it, we are a water polo team that swims," McGhie said.

LOS ALAMITOS — The last time Newport Harbor High played a baseball game in Los Alamitos, it rained throughout much of the game. The two teams played seven innings and then the umpires finally called last month's Sunset League game because it was too wet to continue. The game ended in a tie and that has been the closest Newport Harbor has come to winning a league game this season. The Sailors returned to Los Alamitos Thursday and lost, 8-0, keeping them winless in league.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — One coach said he had moved on since experiencing an overwhelming night last Saturday off the court. The other coach said his players were still thinking about an emotional match last Friday. Emotions tend to run high in boys' volleyball. Newport Harbor High Coach Dan Glenn saw his players use their emotions to power the Sailors to a 25-13, 25-23, 25-22 sweep at Edison Tuesday. Coach Brian Boone said he did not see much of a fight out of his Chargers, who had lost a five-set match to Huntington Beach on the same court five days ago. Glenn was his usual self, staying upbeat.
