CORONA DEL MAR — It was a sort of passing of the torch – make that a baton – from one generation to the next. The Corona del Mar High School's Sea Kings dominated the gymnasium floor on Thursday as dozens of varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders performed alongside elementary school children in what has become a popular fundraising event for the squads. Varsity and junior varsity coaches Lauren Anderson and Cami Marseilles had a full day organizing the event while throngs of proud parents looked on from the sidelines of the gym. It was quite the scene as tykes performed stunts in sync with the older, more experienced cheerleaders.

Costa Mesa High School cheerleaders have launched their annual toy drive this year, but unlike past ones, this time they’re aiming specifically to help local families. The girls will be collecting toys and gift cards and donating them to needy families within the high school’s zone set up by the district. That means families with children at College Park, Davis, Killybrooke, Paularino and Sonora elementary schools will get assistance this year. Normally, donations are sent to the Childrens Hospital of Orange County, or the Boys & Girls Club of America.

At Sutra Lounge in Costa Mesa tonight, Derick Alexander isn’t going to be working the door as a bouncer like he has many Fridays. Instead he’ll be directing cheerleaders, overseeing a fashion show and monitoring every piece of production while he’s filming the pilot for a reality TV show created by his sister Roxanne Alexander-Pringle. “Pro Cheer Danz” is a potential competition reality show that focuses on seven cheerleaders graded for 13 weeks by their acting, dancing, modeling and cheering ability as producers search for a breakout star.

Pat Douglass took a break from leading his UC Irvine men’s basketball team to lead the applause Wednesday, when former Anteaters star Jerry Green was recognized at midcourt late in the first half of a Big West Conference triumph over Cal State Northridge at the Bren Events Center. The brief homage, which included a condensed announcement of Green’s impressive credentials and a presentation of a decorative basketball by UCI Athletic Director Mike Izzi, occurred during the final media timeout of the half.

When the Costa Mesa High School cheer squad decided to run a toy drive for the first time this year, its members didn?t realize they would get help from an Angel. The guiding spirit in this case would be the Costa Mesa-based Angels Charity, whose founder, Doug Hansen, started it to aid children with special needs, like his 6-year-old daughter. The charity?s most visible accomplishment, Angels Playground, offers disabled kids the most accessibility of any playground in the area.
