Roger Carlson We have Sea Kings, as in Corona del Mar; Eagles, as in Estancia; Mustangs, as in Costa Mesa, and Pirates, or Bucs (Buccaneers), for Orange Coast College. But for Newport Harbor High's Sailors ... well, the Long Gray Line is also filled with Tars, and for some reason, not just a few, but many, even who hail from Newport Harbor in these days approaching the third millennium, just don't get it. "What's a Tar?" once again graced my answering system today.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — This time the Newport Harbor High field hockey team did not leave much drama in winning its third straight Los Angeles Field Hockey Assn. Tournament of Champions title. The Sailors handled rival Huntington Beach, 2-0, beating the Oilers for the third straight time in the championship match. Newport won after a penalty-stroke shootout in 2008 and last year the Tars scored a 1-0 victory in the final. Thursday night was a different story, as senior Taylor Cordeiro scored in the first half off an assist from sophomore Jane Layton.

COSTA MESA - Long, lean and sometimes lenient when it comes to surrendering position inside, Estancia High senior Rashad Davis proved Saturday night that he might bend, but not break. The 6-foot-6 post player had eight of his 12 points in the fourth quarter to help the Eagles complete a comeback and defeat visiting Newport Harbor, 44-36, in a nonleague boys' basketball contest. Davis, who came in averaging 19.1 points and 15.3 rebounds per game, had four points and 11 rebounds through three quarters, after which his Eagles trailed, 31-26.

NEWPORT BEACH - Rudy Reyes began the celebration at home a tad early, yelling, "Yeaaaahhhh!" from just outside of his goal. The goalkeeper believed Newport Harbor High's match against Estancia was over when the referee blew his whistle. It wasn't, as the ref called a foul, but Reyes was really the one who ended the Eagles' undefeated start to the season. The senior stopped everything the Eagles kicked or headed his way, helping the Sailors shut out Estancia, 2-0, in a nonleague match on Wednesday.

NEWPORT BEACH - The Newport Harbor softball team, with thoughts on former Harbor Coach Frank Talley, defeated University, 6-3, in nonleague action Thursday. Talley, who died early Thursday morning, made a strong impact on the Sailors. Said current Harbor Coach Jess Martinson, "The team was very quiet and sad, but went out and played to win -- the way he would have wanted." Tars pitcher Stephanie Ciralli earned her third win of the season as she struck out two batters and walked two in seven innings.
