MISSION VIEJO - Corona del Mar High boys' swimming coach Barry O'Dea called it a busy time of the year. On Saturday, that seemed like a huge understatement. O'Dea coached his CdM Aquatics 18-and-under club water polo team in the morning before he and many of his players made it to Capistrano Valley High for a swim meet against Loyola of Los Angeles, Edison and host Capo Valley. As soon as the meet ended, O'Dea and the Sea Kings were on the run again, back to CdM for a 3 p.m. water polo game against SOCAL.

The Newport Hills Killer Whales swim team defeated the Green Valley Dolphins to win the South Coast Swim Conference regular-season championship on July 21. The trophy will continue to reside at the Newport Hills pool. The Killer Whales have now won six consecutive SCSC titles. This year became a bit more complicated, as Green Valley had defeated the Killer Whales in the first meet of the season at the Dolphins pool in Fountain Valley. As the season progressed, the Harbor View Dolphins defeated Green Valley, so the only way Newport Hills could repeat as champion was to defeat both Harbor View and Green Valley in the last two meets of the season.

CORONA DEL MAR — Coach Barry O’Dea said, for the most part, things went slightly better than form for the Corona del Mar High boys’ swim team Tuesday. But one Sea King’s willingness to tinker with his own form created the most eye-catching CdM performance in a 95-75 nonleague win over visiting Back Bay rival Newport Harbor. CdM senior Michael Liao altered his technique to dominate the field and post a season-best time of 58.06 seconds in the 100-yard breaststroke, more than five seconds faster than the runner-up.
