LAGUNA BEACH — It was an impressive first drive for the Corona del Mar High football team Friday night against Troy. The Sea Kings marched 79 yards, only to come up empty on a missed field goal. Troy, by comparison, didn’t waste a lot of time with formalities. Josh Swaney caught a 75-yard touchdown pass from his cousin, Tyler Swaney, on the Warriors’ first play from scrimmage. Two more times, the Warriors scored a touchdown on the first play of a possession in Troy’s 27-7 nonleague win at Laguna Beach High.

CORONA DEL MAR — It is, of course, too soon for those in and around the Corona del Mar High girls’ volleyball program to savor the confluence of events that seem to be working in the Sea Kings’ favor. But after the No. 2-seeded Sea Kings dispatched South Torrance, 25-16, 25-23, 25-21, Tuesday in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division II-AA playoffs, it’s becoming more difficult to ignore the fact that fortune and fate may be two prongs in this team’s symbolic trident.

CORONA DEL MAR — Senior Lauren Smits delivered the clincher, helping the Corona del Mar High girls’ soccer team overcome a first-half deficit Friday. The Sea Kings beat Montclair, 4-2, in penalty kicks, as Smits’ PK won the game for the Sea Kings in a CIF Southern Section Division II first-round game. CdM (13-6-5) rallied from an early one-goal deficit and tied the game to send it into overtime. In the PK shootout, the Cavaliers shot first. Junior forward Erica Rivas had her back turned to the goalie and she prayed to score, but was unable to convert as her shot went over the crossbar.

At the U.S. Olympic gymnastics trials, Sam Mikulak, a Corona del Mar High alum, gained more notoriety, especially scoring the highest in the all-around Thursday. Cheers for Mikulak could be heard throughout the HP Pavilion in San Jose, especially from Team Sam, a group of fans supporting Mikulak. Team Sam did not have many opportunities to cheer during the men's finals Saturday. Mikulak, who had been third in the overall standings, competed only in the pommel horse because of a sprained left ankle from his performance on Thursday.

Alyaa Abdulghany has heard plenty of compliments about her game and her great potential in golf. She'll smile and say, "thank you," but in no way does that indicate she is content with the praise. "People will say that I'm good when I'm out there, but I'm not sure about that," said Abdulghany, Corona del Mar High's freshman phenom. "I know I just want to do better than what I did that day or the day before. " It's this type of drive that keeps those compliments coming and several accolades too. Her motivation keeps her on track to achieve her goals: for this year to reach the CIF state championship; after high school to play in college and put herself in position to turn pro. Remember that name, it's pronounced Ah-lee-yuh Ahb-dool-gon-ee.

Standing on the sidewalk in Corona del Mar, 25-year-old Ashley Sourapas consulted her map. "We skipped one, but I don't know where it is," she said, looking up again to scan the storefronts across the street. Sourapas was searching for the missing stop on the Corona del Mar Bridal Walk, a Sunday afternoon affair that sent brides-to-be on a tour of the varied wedding offerings local businesses had to offer. Looking at everything from wedding venues to bridal dress boutiques, about 26 brides wandered the short stretch of Pacific Coast Highway during the six-hour event, which ended with a complimentary cocktail reception at Five Crowns.

West Newport could become home to the Newport Beach Police Department's new headquarters, Mayor Rush Hill told the Corona del Mar Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday. But no specific sites are under consideration, he explained, as the city begins to examine alternatives to the current location on the outskirts of Newport Center. West Newport requires a stronger police presence and lacks community centers, such as those found in other parts of the city, Hill explained following his remarks to a group of about 50 gathered for the chamber's networking lunch at Five Crowns restaurant.

Brandon Fischer may not be the king of the world, but considering his dancing experience, he was happy to settle last year for king of Corona del Mar High School's male faculty. The math teacher was crowned co-champion of the school's first Dancing with the Teachers contest, in which faculty members paired with students to hoof it onstage. Fischer's group got the assignment of lyrical dance, and someone - he's not quite sure whom - decided on the "Titanic" anthem "My Heart Will Go On" for the music.
