IRVINE — Do not underestimate the girls' water polo contingent on the Corona del Mar High girls' swim team.
Two weeks ago it was junior Grace Morgan stepping in on the "A" relays, helping CdM win the Battle of the Bay for another year.
On Tuesday afternoon at University High, sophomore Bridgett Storm took center stage.
Storm sure picked a great time to win her first 200-yard freestyle race of the season. She gave her team some early-meet momentum, helping CdM accomplish something it hadn't done in eight years.
The Sea Kings raced past the rival Trojans by a 94-76 score, earning their first Pacific Coast League victory over University since 2006.
CdM's boys suffered their first league loss of the season, 119-50.
CdM's girls (4-0 in league) also have not won a league title since 2006, when CdM captured the CIF Southern Section Division 2 crown in current assistant coach Stephanie Gabert's junior season. But now CdM takes momentum into the league finals next week.
