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)

Bryce Alderton Walnut High's girls soccer team met its match against Costa Mesa Saturday in the CIF Southern Section Division III final at Cal State Fullerton.

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

Chase Bray was stumped. On the verge of launching his own business, the Newport Beach resident had a business plan formulated, investors lined up and a location in mind. What was missing was a name. One day, while working as a valet at the Montage Laguna Beach, he spent his lunch break flipping through a Latin dictionary. And there he saw the words "porro" and "vita," which together mean "long life. " "I'm basically trying to extend people's lives, be it a cancer patient or someone who is just trying to provide his body with healthier options and more nutrients," Bray said of his year-old venture, PorroVita, which offers healthy juices, acai bowls and smoothies.
