Valencia (24-1), the second seed, took seven of nine singles sets, which just more than made up for Sage Hill (23-2), the top seed, taking six of nine doubles sets.

Normally a running team, Newport Harbor takes to the air in the second half, leading to three scores and the Division VI title.COSTA MESA -- As transformations go, this one was something like going from Clark Kent to Superman. Essentially grounded in the first half, Newport Harbor's passing game took off after halftime. With it went the Sailors offense and their chances for a CIF Southern Section Division VI championship. And as important as the Tars' defense was, holding off Valencia, the offense -- and the passing game in particular -- made the victory possible.
