Barry Faulkner COSTA MESA - Joanna Danner, who threw four no-hitters, including a perfect game, en route to earning Newport-Mesa District Player of the Year laurels as a sophomore softball pitcher at Estancia High last year, has transferred to Pacifica. Cathy Danner, Joanna's mother, said logistics require Joanna to stay with her grandparents during the week. The grandparents reside within the Pacifica attendance boundaries, making a daily commute to Estancia problematic.

CORONA DEL MAR — Corona del Mar High Coach Steve Conti knows what he has in junior setters Connor Bannan and Michael Ensign. “There are some things that Connor gives us that maybe Michael doesn’t,” he said. “There are some things that [Michael] gives us that maybe Connor doesn’t.” In the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Division II boys’ volleyball playoffs, Conti didn’t have to worry about Ensign passing along a bug Friday.

Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - This time around, there won't be any reason for postgame penalty kicks. That's what Costa Mesa High Coach Eugene Day wants out of his boys soccer team, which fulfilled that goal for at least one game with a 3-0 CIF Southern Section Division IV first-round victory over visiting Pacifica Friday. The Mustangs (14-3-3), the two-time Pacific Coast League champions, did not have to sweat out a close game. Not with seniors Mike Gardiner and Eli Solis and freshman Alfonso Pineda scoring goals; and especially not when Mesa outshot Pacifica, 19-4, including 15-3 in the second half when the Mustangs scored two goals to put the game away.

GARDEN GROVE — It was a bit of senior silliness, really, an opportunity to jump one last time through a window of opportunity that closes on everyone playing in their last high school football game. But the leap Costa Mesa High senior outside linebacker Cody De La Mater made off the back of a Mustangs defensive lineman into the Pacifica backfield before the snap late in Pacifica’s 34-0 victory in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs, was, perhaps a fitting metaphor for the Mustangs’ improbable season.

NEWPORT BEACH - Cheerleaders brought a huge banner out at halftime of Corona del Mar High's season opener on Friday. They raised it near the 40-yard line for everyone to see at Davidson Field. In all caps, the sign read, "KICKING OFF THE SEASON. " That is all that needed to be written. The Sea Kings made a bold statement on the field, routing Pacifica, 35-0. They made it look easy and that has been a common occurrence during the Sea Kings' 11-game winning streak that dates back to last season.

GARDEN GROVE — One after the other, the Corona del Mar High girls' basketball team lost its two tallest and most productive players to fouls. Natalia Bruening and Krista Anderson didn't spend much time together on the court on Saturday. They both picked up their second fouls in the first quarter, then one each in the second and third quarters. One more foul by Bruening, a 6-foot-3 center, and Anderson, a 6-2 forward, and their evening was over, and most likely their team's season.
