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.

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.

When Evan Chalmers became aware about the opening for a baseball head coach at Newport Harbor High he said he applied right away. He wanted another chance to lead the Sailors, as he did four years ago before he was abruptly let go without given a reason. A little more than two months ago, Chalmers, who remained a teacher at Harbor and worked as an assistant for rival Corona del Mar's baseball team, was put in charge of the Sailors' baseball team once again. Since then he grew more excited to lead a team that features two Division I-bound pitchers.

UC Irvine men's soccer coach George Kuntz called it a leak in the dam. Anteaters senior forward Christopher Santana thanked God for the opportunity. And UCI senior defender Tarek Norad said though definitely not a miracle, that Santana's dramatic game-winning goal in the NCAA second-round playoff game against visiting North Carolina on Sunday created an amazing feeling that he and his teammates had simply earned. By whatever description, the difference in the 1-0 triumph, the second NCAA Tournament win in four postseason trips for the Anteaters, was as dramatic as they come.
