It was another busy weekend for Newport Harbor Field Hockey! Thank you to the many many parents who helped out with the logistics of the tournaments for each team!

Newport Harbor Varsity played in the OC Varsity Invitational at Marina High School. The Sailors won their first game against Marina 3-0 with two goals by Jordan Blanchfield and one goal by Emily Conant. The semi-final game was a 1-0 victory over Bonita with the goal by Blanchfield and 4 saves by goalkeeper Cailynn Smethurst. The final game ended in a 0-0 tie after 8 saves by Smethurst and countless shots on goal, but then the Sailors lost in the first round of sudden victory strokes. Congratulations on a Second Place finish!

Newport Harbor JV and Frosh/Soph Field Hockey traveled to La Mesa to compete in the Helix High School Varsity Highlander Cup.

Newport Harbor JV placed first in their pool after three shutout wins.  In their Friday game against Eastlake, Newport won 3-0 with goals by Jessica Stone, Ali Bonds – assisted by Stone and Sammy Whitney, and Mckenzie Porteous – assisted by Rylie Siegfried. Goalkeeper Callie Kennedy recorded seven saves. In the second game against San Marcos, Newport won 2-0 with goals by Haley Martinez and Whitney, and two saves by Kennedy. In their third game, the Sailors defeated Morris 4-0 with goals by Porteous – assisted by Siegfried, Senny Fuller – assisted by Siegfried, and two goals by Siegfried.
