NEWPORT COAST - It began to rain hard as the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse team waited for the fourth quarter to begin. While fans took cover, the Sea Kings looked giddy to play in the slick conditions. The players wanted a challenge. They couldn't find one on Friday. Someone said only lightning could've stopped the Sea Kings, and not the Lightning from Sage Hill. The host Lightning struggled to keep up with CdM throughout the cold night. For Sage Hill's sake, with the clock running, the final 12 minutes went by fast.

As coach of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse program, G.W. Mix doesn't get to see his two sons play in college often. He's too busy coaching, while Ryan Mix and Casey Mix are away competing. Ryan plays for the University of Notre Dame and Casey for UC Santa Barbara. Mix's boys are coming home this week and he will get to see them play in person. Dad came up with a great idea: create a college lacrosse exhibition in Orange County and invite the teams his sons play on. The event, which looks to promote lacrosse in California, took several years to pull off. The schedules worked out for all parties involved.
When the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team steps on the field today at powerhouse Poway, Coach Kathy Chaix will have plenty of new, young faces. The junior varsity team is moving on up. Chaix has been forced to make the move because the Sea Kings have been rocked with five injuries and three ineligible varsity players. Two key players Chaix said are out with injuries are junior attacker Addison Hoover (sprained ankle) and sophomore defender Amy Youngman (torn anterior cruciate ligament)

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO - Jack Ortlieb noticed a difference in the way the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse team came off the bus Saturday. He said the Sea Kings lacked the energy they usually have right before a game. They have been riding the bus quite a bit during their spring break. The Sea Kings played at Thousand Oaks on April 13, then traveled the next day to the San Francisco Bay Area to play Danville San Ramon Valley on Monday and Pleasanton Amador Valley on Tuesday. Wednesday marked the Sea Kings' return home.

CORONA DEL MAR - The Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team may not always outrun you this year. Instead, the Sea Kings will outthink you. After losing a large senior class, Coach Aly Vislocky said CdM is trying to play a more tactical game in 2013. The Sea Kings have implemented more plays, with the help of new assistant coach Jessica Murray. The result of the team's hard work certainly looked impressive Thursday afternoon at home. CdM upset rival Foothill, 9-7, in a nonleague game.

CORONA DEL MAR - Two losses this week did not provide the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team with a lot of momentum going into the U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section South Division playoffs. But, as the Sea Kings showed last year, anything can happen once the playoffs begin. The postseason was the talking point Wednesday, after CdM dropped its Pacific Coast League finale to league champion Beckman, 9-6, at home. Corona del Mar (13-7, 7-3 in league) finished tied for second in league.

IRVINE — Controlling the draw is a big part of lacrosse. Controlling emotions may prove even more valuable for the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team as the season continues. The Sea Kings lost a chance to take control of the Pacific Coast League on Monday afternoon at Beckman High. Their comeback fell short and they lost to the Patriots, 12-11, in a battle of league unbeatens. CdM (10-3, 5-1 in league) can still most likely earn a share of the league title for the second straight year by beating Beckman (10-3, 5-0)
