HUNTINGTON BEACH - It was simple for Newport Harbor High going into its Sunset League football finale. Win and the Sailors claim a share of the league title. Lose and their shot at first was over. The latter happened on Friday night, as the Sailors lost at Huntington Beach, 40-14. Coach Jeff Brinkley couldn't believe it happened. How could a team that was playing for something as important as a league crown lose by 26 points to a fifth-place team? "Obviously, it didn't motivate them enough," Brinkley said of the Sailors trying to split their second league championship in five years.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - A popular term on the Newport Harbor High girls' tennis team is "right back. " Players often yell it to their teammates for support, indicating that they should come right back after a missed shot, refocus and get the next point. In their first time on the big stage at the Sunset League finals, Sailors sophomores Anna Burke and Kendall Cosenza did not win the tournament in doubles. But they left the courts with third-place medals, and their heads held high. Burke and Cosenza plan to be "right back" at this stage the next two years as well.

Playing with a bruised kidney and lung, Cole Norris looked beat, but not defeated. The junior went into halftime with his team, Newport Harbor High, down by 10 points. The game plan in the first half didn't work much against Fountain Valley on Friday. Coach Jeff Brinkley told his staff during the break that the Sailors needed to come out and throw the ball. Norris turned it on in the final two quarters. His right arm proved to be more than enough for the Sailors to get back into contention for a Sunset League title.

Carolyn Bockrath has come a long way during her career with the Newport Harbor High girls' volleyball team, but the distance that could best represent her progress might be a mile exactly. Players need to run a seven-minute mile as part of varsity tryouts. Bockrath was able to do so in the past, but only with the help of Newport girls' cross country and track coach Eric Tweit. "Last year, I got 6:54 with a lot of help," Bockrath said. "[Tweit] rode his bike next to me. There was no way I wasn't going to make my mile.

In 28 years as a coach, Dan Glenn can count on three fingers the number of times he has received a red card during a Newport Harbor High girls' volleyball match. Glenn earned the third one on Tuesday in a crucial Sunset League match against Huntington Beach. He let his emotions get the best of him shortly after the head referee gave him a yellow card in the third set. The yellow card warned Glenn to settle down after he argued that a ball went out. The red card gave the Oilers a point and forced an animated Glenn to coach from his chair.

It's no shock that Edison High has had Newport Harbor High's number in Sunset League play. You have to go back 34 years for the Sailors' last win against the Chargers. How Edison continued its dominance against Newport Harbor surprised the Sailors on Friday. They expected a different quarterback to run around and a different running back to carry the load. None of that happened as the Sailors fell yet again to Edison, losing at home, 28-16. The Chargers, ranked No. 2 in the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division poll, mixed up its ground game.
