"But we all know CdM Coach John Emme keeps a short porch out there at CdM," he said, before Lemmerman mentioned that seven of his 10 homers were hit on the road.

Matt was fine with trying out water polo. He got his feet wet, so to speak, in the seventh grade with longtime Coach Ted Bandaruk. Matt grew to love water polo.

In a Pacific Coast League game featuring first-place Beckman against fourth-place Corona del Mar it appeared it would be a tight one … through the first three innings. But then came chaos in the fourth inning. Well, it was chaos for CdM. Yet it was a bonafide, two-out rally for the Patriots, who scored seven runs and went on to beat the Sea Kings, 11-2, Friday at CdM. It left the Sea Kings (6-16, 4-7 in league) needing to win their final four regular-season games for a playoff berth and it left the Patriots (20-2, 10-1)

Miranda Stiver was more than a little bit intimidated when she entered the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer program as a sophomore. Stiver moved from Arcadia to Newport Beach in the fall of 2011 with her mother, step-dad and younger brother. The family wanted to be closer to the headquarters of PIMCO, the Newport Beach-based investment management firm for which Miranda's mother, Christina, works. The commute for Christina was indeed severely reduced. Miranda did not have so much trouble fitting in at CdM in the classroom, but on the soccer field she had doubts.

Just the other day in practice, a teammate hit Kevin Fults in the nose, cutting him. The wound didn't heal up in time for the Corona del Mar High boys' basketball game on Tuesday. Fults, with a scab near the bridge of his nose, split open the original cut with 6 minutes left against Woodbridge. The referees didn't see the blood dripping down the right side of Fults' nose, so CdM Coach Ryan Schachter yelled at them, catching their attention. The referees stopped the Pacific Coast League game and Fults went to the bench.
