Titans too hot for CdM

May 22, 2003

* The day started off bad for Corona del Mar High's softball team, as

the temperature reached 98 degrees and the CIF Southern Section

Division IV wild-card game was delayed 20 minutes because the umpires

were late arriving to the field.

four runs in the first inning and went on to defeat the Sea Kings,

10-1, Wednesday at Notre Dame.


The Titans (18-8) led off the bottom of the first, scoring four

runs on three errors. Four of Notre Dame's runs were unearned.

Notre Dame led, 8-0, before Corona del Mar (10-11) picked up its only run in the top of the sixth when Heather Lohrman's groundout
