Girls basketball: Newport never quits in loss

NEWPORT BEACH - The Newport Harbor High girls basketball team

earned respect, but lost, 55-30, to Sea View League visitor Woodbridge

Thursday.

Sophomore Jillianne Whitfield led the Sailors with 12 points and

junior Lindsey Woller added seven.

"We actually played very good half-court defense," Newport Coach Jen

Thompson said. "Woodbridge is 18-2, 4-0 in league and I thought we played

their big girls real well. We never gave up. We played hard for the full

32 minutes. Just hearing some of their fans and coaches say, 'Your team

never gives up,' is very encouraging to hear."

Newport (2-16, 0-4 in league) will have a bye on Tuesday and will then

host Aliso Niguel Thursday at 7 p.m.
