WALNUT - Newport Harbor High's girls tennis team elected to compete without standouts Natalie Braverman and Megan Hawkins in Saturday's CIF Division II second-round match against host Walnut High, and it didn't make much difference. The second-seeded Sailors, now 13-3, shelled the Mustangs, 16-2, to move into Tuesday's quarterfinals, most likely against Sunny Hills at a site to be determined by coin flip. Senior Kelly Nelson and sophomores Diana Khoury and Vanessa Dunlap swept their singles foes to lead the way. CIF DIVISION II Second round Newport Harbor 16, Walnut 2 Singles - Nelson (NH)

Mesa (22-1-3) took home CIF patches and Walnut was awarded the plaque after a coin flip following the final whistle.
