CORONA DEL MAR - A blast off the bat of Corona del Mar High junior Billy Eagle was flagged down near the right-center field fence to kill what would have been a go-ahead, fifth-inning rally in the Sea Kings' 2-1 loss to visiting Capistrano Valley in the Foothill-Costa Mesa Tournament Thursday. "Capo is considered one of the best teams in Orange County, so this tells us where we stand," CdM Coach John Emme said. Senior Cavan Cuyler pitched a complete-game six-hitter to absorb the tough-luck loss.

Steve Virgen NEWPORT BEACH - The Newport Harbor High girls water polo team added another piece to the CIF Southern Section Division I playoff puzzle with a 7-4 nonleague victory over visiting Capistrano Valley Saturday morning. Though it seemed the Sailors (14-4) might have jammed the piece in, they took care of business, nonetheless. Junior Annie Wight led Newport with three goals and senior Katherine Belden scored two, while sophomore Jessica Ball and junior Jenna Murphy added a goal each.

MISSION VIEJO - On one swing of the Corona del Mar High kicker's leg before halftime, the momentum swung the other way. A 52-yard field-goal try by Grif Amies resulted in a 52-yard special teams return for a touchdown at the end of the first half. The finish to the first half at Capistrano Valley was bizarre. What looked like a potential go-ahead scoring drive by the Sea Kings to close the half wound up with the Cougars taking the lead instead. They never looked back after returning a blocked field-goal attempt for a touchdown.

Corona del Mar High senior center Giovanni Gentosi will be a preferred walk-on player with the UCLA football team and senior linebacker Alex Moore a preferred walk-on player at USC, Sea Kings Coach Scott Meyer said. Gentosi anchored CdM's perfect 16-0 season which included a Pacific Coast League title, a CIF Southern Section Southern Division title, and the school's first CIF State Division III Bowl Game title. Gentosi went 40-4 during his three years as a CdM starter. He won his final 26 games, helping the Sea Kings own the state's current longest winning streak.
