NEWPORT BEACH - The Battle of the Bay was just that, a battle. The finish between Newport Harbor High and Corona del Mar was one for the ages. Even Coach Jeff Brinkley had to think whether he had seen a football game end the way it did on Friday night. "Probably not," said a grinning Brinkley, who has been at Newport Harbor for 27 seasons. He could smile, because his backup quarterback, with 24 seconds left and his team trailing, threw a go-ahead 22-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal.

For the past two weeks, the Newport Harbor High field hockey team has been preparing for the season with two-a-days. The Newport girls went through rigorous conditioning in the morning and worked on technique and team aspects in the afternoon. It's a traditional process for them at this time of the year, but there seems to be much more at stake this season. When it comes to field hockey, Newport Harbor is a dynasty. Last year, the program won its fourth straight Los Angeles Field Hockey Assn.

A heat wave hit during the start of training camp at Newport Harbor High. It isn't often that it feels like it's in the high-90s in Newport Beach. Players brought up the heat and humidity. Coach Jeff Brinkley shook his head, knowing players not by the beach have it a lot worse than the Sailors do. The temperature will cool down by the time the season starts on Aug. 30. While the heat will go away, the Sailors aren't going anywhere. Their first four games of the season are at home.

NORWALK - Ethan Cochran called Friday the worst competitive day of a stellar three-year run he's had while throwing for Newport Harbor High. He was in a funk competing in the discus at the CIF Southern Section Masters Meet at Cerritos College. Cochran never appeared nervous with two throws remaining and without a qualifying mark for the State Meet. The Newport senior qualified on his fifth throw and unleashed a mark of 197 feet, 10 inches on his final throw to become the Masters champion.

NEWPORT BEACH - In the sweat box that housed the annual boys' volleyball Battle of the Bay, it figured that one team's ability to turn down the heat proved to be a crucial element in the victory. Corona del Mar High Coach Steve Conti instructed his players to shelve their jump serves in favor of float serves, in order to better locate after dropping the first game to host Newport Harbor. The resulting accuracy helped the Sea Kings rally for a 22-25, 25-21, 25-21, 25-20 nonleague triumph to cap the regular season Friday.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - The Battle of the Bay came seven weeks before the regularly scheduled high school boys' volleyball match. Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar met on a neutral site Monday. They played for a title, not for Back Bay supremacy, but for first place of Orange County. The first matchup between the rivals ended rather quickly, stunning CdM Coach Steve Conti. The other coach, Steve Astor, wasn't surprised his second-seeded Sailors upset the top-seeded Sea Kings, 25-20, 27-25, in the Orange County Championships Division 1 finale at Edison High.
