Perhaps hobbling around has been good for Steve Conti. On the surface, it's been frustrating, rotten really, for the Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball coach to be reduced to hobbling around in an oversized boot because of a post-operative foot infection. But in another sense, he fits right in with his team. Outside hitter Adam Smith, who will be attending UCLA, tore a ligament in his left hand and missed the Sea Kings first 29 matches of the season. Blaine Nielsen, bound for UC Santa Barbara, was out for two weeks when he injured his right foot, and junior Jeff Carlson was unavailable for three days when he hurt his right shoulder.

Steve Virgen Corona del Mar High boys tennis coach Tim Mang has enjoyed a relatively stress-free season, thus far. However, his stress level might rise today, or it might not. Mang is not sure. And, for the Sea Kings, that just might be for the best. The Sea Kings (23-0) will face Santa Barbara, a team they have not faced this season and hardly know anything about, in the CIF Southern Section Division I title match today at 11 a.m. at the Claremont Club.

The last time the Costa Mesa High girls’ water polo team headed north up Highway 101, it was a very positive experience. In early January, the Mustangs went to the Arroyo Grande Tournament, and on the way up they played at Dos Pueblos of Goleta. Costa Mesa lost to the Chargers, now the top-seeded team in the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs, 14-2. At the Arroyo Grande Tournament, the Mustangs finished 11th, beating Morro Bay and Chadwick and losing three other games.

CORONA DEL MAR — A newly condensed CIF Southern Section playoff schedule is a pressing concern for any boys’ volleyball team battling health issues. But, having to play potentially four matches in eight days to earn a berth in the Division I final may generate more harmony than harm for Corona del Mar High. The No. 2-seeded Sea Kings showed Thursday night that fewer breaks between matches might enhance the crispness with which they have now dispatched their first two playoff opponents.

But Lynch wants more quality play from Newport Harbor in the quarterfinals Friday. So, what will it take for Newport Harbor (21-7) to make a run at defending its section championship?

Barry Faulkner If Newport Harbor High is to make good on any long-range plans for its postseason, the Sailors will need to be mindful of host Buena's perimeter shooters in a CIF Southern Section Division II-AA first-round boys basketball playoff game tonight at 7:30. Meanwhile, Estancia gets the task of upsetting top-seeded Bishop Montgomery, which begins its quest for a fourth straight section crown in a Division III-A second-round clash tonight at 7:30 on the Knights' floor.

Tim O'Brien says he took a five-year break from coaching basketball because he was "just tired, just worn out. " He coached for five seasons at Estancia High, seven at Orange Coast College, and then 13 years ago he went back to the high school ranks. O'Brien started at a new school, Northwood. He led the program to three league titles, and then after the 2006-07 season, O'Brien stepped down. "I thought I was done," said O'Brien, adding that he began coaching in 1978. "I got an itch.
