CORONA DEL MAR — The Corona del Mar High girls' volleyball team has put itself in the best position it can to knock off Redlands East Valley.
Now, the Sea Kings just hope the fifth time is the charm.
Corona del Mar will face Redlands East Valley for the fifth time in the last three postseasons after sweeping off Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos, 25-11, 25-19, 25-23, in a CIF Southern Section Division I-A quarterfinal match Saturday night at CdM.
No. 2-seeded Redlands East Valley, which swept Murrieta Valley in another quarterfinal match, will play host to CdM in a semifinal match Tuesday. The Wildcats have defeated the No. 3-seeded Sea Kings in each of those previous four meetings. Led by University of Washington-commit Krista Vansant, Redlands East Valley beat CdM in the Division II-AA title match the last two years before knocking off the Sea Kings in the CIF State Division II regional final each year.
