Katie Wells is a rarity in high school girls' volleyball. The senior is one of the top players on a Newport Harbor High team that finished the season as co-champions of the Sunset League and ranked No. 6 in the CIF Southern Section Division I-AA. But unlike the other elite players on the Sailors roster, Wells didn't start her varsity career as a freshman or sophomore. Wells did not even play on the varsity team as a junior. But in her first varsity season, as a 6-foot middle blocker Wells made an impact and became a captain on a team full of players with more experience.

Braden Ross only needed one varsity letter for his letterman's jacket. But, just to be safe, he stacked up 10 of them during his four years at Sage Hill School. "That's pretty rare in high school," said Lightning boys' athletic director Nate Miller. "Even at a small school." Ross, who was named the Lightning Male Athlete of the Year for 2007, certainly earned all of them. He was a four-year varsity athlete in football and soccer, and also played baseball during his freshman and sophomore years.

COSTA MESA - Newport Harbor High sophomore Carlee Kapana could be a varsity starter on the majority of girls' water polo teams in Orange County. The Sailors have another great goalie playing on varsity, junior Cleo Harrington. Kapana plays on the junior varsity, and she said she's cool with it. It makes sense. The Sailors also have a JV team that could beat the majority of girls' water polo teams in Orange County. They beat two of them Saturday at Costa Mesa High. Kapana helped lead the way as Newport Harbor's JV squad beat Beckman, 14-6, to win the Costa Mesa Classic Lil' Pickle Showdown for the second straight year.

The Corona del Mar High girls' water polo team always has team shirts for the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs. Most of the time the shirts have funny or silly words on the back, nicknames to describe the players. But for sophomore Ashley Quinn, the word on the back says so much about her. "Fighter. " Quinn is a key part of the Sea Kings' future. She was a junior varsity center this year for CdM, and a varsity call-up for the playoffs. But she also is an inspiration for this year's varsity squad as well.

Pacific Coast League administrators have voted to deny Northwood High the option of playing a free-lance varsity football schedule next fall, Rick Curtis, Northwood's athletic director and football coach, said Monday. Curtis said he could decide as soon as Friday whether to play a varsity or junior varsity schedule next fall in the PCL. "I'm disappointed about not being able to play free-lance, but these are the rules and we'll abide by them," said Curtis, who invoked ire from some PCL coaches last month by announcing plans to play as a free-lance team.

Bryce Alderton Jim Huffman likes to include everyone when he can. This season the first-year girls volleyball coach at Estancia High wants to establish consistency by meeting with leaders of the frosh-soph and junior varsity squads to ensure players at each level are learning similar techniques. "We go over what drills to do and how to emphasize coaching techniques so players can make the transition from frosh-soph to varsity fairly easily," said Huffman, who guided the women's team at Cal State Fullerton from 1989-92 and led the Estancia junior varsity team a year ago. Huffman wants to establish consistency to a varsity program that has had four different coaches the last five years.

Deirdre Newman NEWPORT BEACH -- Newport Harbor High School has finally filled the two cheer coaching vacancies left by the departure of Lisa Callahan earlier this year. Hiring the coaches brings some closure to the controversy that consumed the school late last year, when Callahan accused judges of inconsistencies during the cheer tryouts. Callahan, who had been at the school for 13 years, was essentially fired in January by notice of a memo that prohibited her from interacting with students on campus because improper procedures were used to hire her. The new coaches hired this week will bring needed stability to the cheerleading program, said Kathy Slawson, assistant principal.

Kacie Kline seems to perfectly fit into her different roles on the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team. The senior is an aggressive player, which makes her perfect for the position known simply as "attack. " Kline, who wears No. 3, is exceeding that number in terms of goals per game. She leads the Sea Kings with 42 goals this season. But Kline's leadership is just as valuable off the field. She takes her role as a captain very seriously, especially on a young CdM team that features five freshmen, many of whom play important roles.

When Jack Harryman was about 9 years old, he had a little talk with one of the best boys' water polo players that Corona del Mar High has seen. The conversation wasn't by accident. Harryman lived across the street from Jacob Murphy, the 2005 Pacific Coast League Most Valuable Player who went on to star at center for UCLA. Growing up, Harryman was pretty good friends with Murphy's youngest sister, Diana, who graduated from CdM this year. Jacob Murphy told Harryman that he should try water polo.

Norris' first start on varsity came in the biggest football game in town, the Battle of the Bay against Corona del Mar. He stepped in for Zach Wade, the injured starting quarterback. Coaches always told Norris he was one play away from proving he can play on this level.
