CORONA DEL MAR — Senior day for the Corona del Mar High girls' water polo team was special.
The Sea Kings started six seniors in the field Friday in their 11-7 nonleague victory over Long Beach Wilson. Tori Gabert, Devon Greenlee, Lauren Marks, Yoko Morita, Maddie Schwartz and Alanna Woods were in the water as the game began. Alyssa Hornby and goalie Anna Venturini are also seniors on the team.
Marks sang the national anthem before the game. Some of the seniors, like her, Greenlee and Schwartz, have logged plenty of minutes this regular season for CdM.
Woods was just happy to make her first varsity start. She is a hard worker, not only for the Sea Kings but in the countless hours of her time she dedicates to volunteer work.
"She never uses anything as a crutch," CdM Coach Sam Bailey said.
Woods also works hard in the classroom, but there she doesn't really have a choice.
