This is the year the Huntington Beach High football program will ride off into the Sunset. During an upcoming school year in which the school is recognizing a Centennial Celebration of athletics, it is all but certain that this year will be the last time that the Oilers will call the Sunset League home. That's because, beginning with the 2006-07 school year, Huntington Beach is set to become a member of the Sea View League. The Oilers would join Foothill, Northwood, Trabuco Hills, El Toro and Woodbridge in the Sea View League.

It's Sasha Grumman's job to play stellar defense, control the midfield and set up goals for the Newport Harbor High field hockey team. But don't blame her if she chooses to do a bunch of scoring as well. Grumman opened up Sunset League action with a bang last week, scoring two goals in the team's 7-0 win over Fountain Valley last Tuesday. She came back last Friday and scored a key goal in the team's 2-0 league win over Huntington Beach. Grumman tallied three goals and three assists in the first two league games for Newport Harbor, which has captured the Sunset League title four out of the past five years.

When Amanda Carver scored for the Newport Harbor High field hockey team toward the end of the first half, little did the Sailors know it would be their only goal of the game. Newport Harbor was held scoreless the last 35 minutes, 55 seconds of the game, as Marina High held on for a 2-1 Sunset League victory Tuesday afternoon at Harper School. Carver won a loose ball in front of the Marina net and clubbed it past goalkeeper Caitlyn Kagawa with 5:55 remaining in the first half to give the Sailors a 1-0 lead.

GLENDALE ? It saw its share of excellent teams throughout the regular season, but likely saw the best squad at the wrong time. The Glendale High girls' tennis team had its season end with a 15-3 loss to powerful Los Alamitos in a CIF Southern Section Division II first-round road match at the Seal Beach Tennis Center. Sixth-seeded Los Alamitos, which won the Sunset League, will next face Redlands or Murrieta in a second-round match at 2 p.m. Saturday. Glendale (11-5) got two wins in singles competition, including a 7-5 victory for Meldia Hacobian and a 6-0 win for Ynna Aghabegian.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- This is how the Hoover High boys' tennis team's prospective CIF title run will begin: with Tuesday's home match -- likely at Fremont Tennis Center -- against an undoubtedly overmatched Paramount (11-6, 6-6 in San Gabriel Valley League) team. The toughest opponent in the Tornadoes' (19-1 and seeded No. 2 among Southern Section Division I teams) half of the bracket is Capistrano Valley, the South Coast League's second-place representative, which enters the tournament with a 15-2 record.

SANTA MONICA — Sona Karakashian and Joyce Librando came up big when their team needed them most. After losing its first two doubles sets, the Glendale High girls' tennis team's No. 1 duo found itself in position to win the match. Karakashian and Librando regrouped to win the final set of the day to propel the Nitros to a 10-8 road victory against Santa Monica on Thursday in a CIF Southern Section Division II wild-card match. Glendale (11-4) will next face host Los Alamitos in a first-round match at 2 p.m. Thursday.

Erik Boal All the groundwork for a successful playoff run was laid during the regular season. And for their efforts during the past two months, the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls' tennis team were awarded the most promising postseason draw in program history when the pairings were announced Monday at the CIF Southern Section office in Los Alamitos. The five-time defending Pacific League champion (17-1, 10-0 in league) -- which earned the No. 3 seed, and is riding a 15-match winning streak -- hosts Atascadero (10-5, 7-5 in PAC-5 League)

When it comes to playing some of the best prep football programs in Orange County, the Marina High Vikings certainly are one team that doesn't shy away. That will be the case again in 2005, when Marina plays a killer nonleague schedule before heading into one of the premiere football leagues in the CIF Southern Section -- the Sunset League. "Again, we will be tested early with a very difficult preseason schedule," said Coach Mike Dodd, who begins his sixth year at the helm.

Satiated, briefly, by its season-opening victory over Fountain Valley High, the Newport Harbor football team will now hope to devour what Coach Jeff Brinkley called the flavor of the month. Brinkley was referring to the spread offense that, thanks to Coach Urban Meyer's breakout success with the University of Utah, has become wildly popular with both college and high school programs nationwide. Marina (0-2), which visits for a nonleague clash Friday at 7 p.m., will employ the no-huddle spread that typically features four receivers, a single back and the quarterback lined up in the shotgun.

Entering the 20th season of a highly successful reign at the helm of the Newport Harbor High football program, Coach Jeff Brinkley said he plans to continue to lead the Sailors for many years to come. But with a move to the Sunset League and CIF Southern Section Division I set for the fall of 2006, the 2005 campaign clearly represents somewhat of a farewell tour. Newport Harbor, which reached the CIF Division VI championship game last fall -- its sixth trip to a final in the last 13 seasons in Divisions IV, V or VI -- will attempt to make one more run at a Division VI crown.
