The athletic success over the years at Corona del Mar High has been nothing short of dynastic. The gym walls are strewn with CIF Southern Section championship banners in all but a handful of sports.
The remaining checklist of sports without a CIF title was reduced in 2010, when the Sea Kings' boys soccer team claimed the program's first section crown. The team didn't stop there, either, adding a Southern California Regional title and finishing No. 2 in one national poll.
Sea Kings' success in football and boys water polo also helped the school dominate the top 10 Newport-Mesa sports stories of the year.
UC Irvine checked in with three items in the top 10, joining annual staples such as the Toshiba Senior Classic and the Daily Pilot Cup.
A closer look at the top 10:
