After Estancia High senior Celia Duran earned Newport-Mesa Girls' Basketball Player of the Year honors last year, she received congratulations from Corona del Mar sophomore Natalia Bruening. The two players ran into each other at club basketball tryouts last spring. Soon, they were talking about being co-Players of the Year this year. "We called it," Duran said with a smile. Duran is a 5-foot-7 guard, while Bruening is a 6-foot-3 forward. While they played much different roles, both Duran and Bruening helped ensure big years for their respective squads.

Kacie Kline seems to perfectly fit into her different roles on the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team. The senior is an aggressive player, which makes her perfect for the position known simply as "attack. " Kline, who wears No. 3, is exceeding that number in terms of goals per game. She leads the Sea Kings with 42 goals this season. But Kline's leadership is just as valuable off the field. She takes her role as a captain very seriously, especially on a young CdM team that features five freshmen, many of whom play important roles.

Winning a Pacific Coast League game is a definite goal of the Corona del Mar softball team this year. It might not sound like much, but it would mean a ton to the program. The Sea Kings, who have had a strong preseason, haven't won a league game since 2008. They will not win any by playing "scared," as their coach said they did during Tuesday's league opener against Irvine at home. CdM fell behind early and suffered an 11-1, six-inning, "mercy rule" loss to the Vaqueros. It is the program's 51st straight league loss.
