Barry Faulkner Corona del Mar High boys water polo coach John Vargas doesn't think in these terms, at least for public consumption, and he'd probably appreciate it if his players also abstained. But there are aspirations within the Sea Kings program for an unbeaten season this fall. Such an accomplishment, which would include the program's third straight CIF Southern Section championship, would be a first for the storied water polo program Vargas has helped maintain since he took over as a 21-year-old head coach in 1983.

At the end of a historic season in late December, reporters asked Coach Scott Meyer about next year. Can his football team repeat a perfect season? The Sea Kings had just beaten Atherton Sacred Heart Prep, 27-15, in the CIF State Division III Bowl Game to become the first team in the state to produce a 16-0 season. Meyer, standing inside the tunnel at the StubHub Center in Carson, tried not to look ahead. "We're not going to think about that for a little while," Meyer said back then, before going into the number of starters expected to return, 10 on defense and five on offense, and the challenging nonleague schedule next season.

School ends next week at Corona del Mar High. The school's football season isn't quite over just yet. The Sea Kings' historic season continues into the holiday break. And they are one win away from giving themselves another gift in the form of a championship. As if CdM hasn't won enough. The school extended its season one more week and the next game is the final one. The Sea Kings are in the CIF State Division III Bowl Game after they beat Ojai Nordhoff, 24-8, in the CIF State Southern California Regional Division III Bowl Game at Orange Coast College on Saturday night.

As a sophomore, Parker Chase stood out on the field so much that a starting job at defensive end seemed realistic. Seven sophomores wound up starting on defense for the Corona del Mar High football team last year. Chase wasn't one of the lucky seven to get so much playing time as a young player. At the start of last year's fall training camp, Chase broke his left hand. He says his hand struck the metal part of a sled and then a helmet. The next day, the top of his hand looked like a baseball.

Two days after the end of the Corona del Mar High football season on Dec. 21, Giovanni Gentosi skipped town. All beat up from playing a 16-game schedule he went on a much-needed vacation. Gentosi spent the holiday break with family in Mammoth Mountain, where he planned to rest his body for five days. On three of those days, his body endured a little more as he joined his family on hikes. Nature eased the pain from a grueling season. Those trails gave Gentosi time to reflect on his senior season and his team's climb to a place no other CdM team had reached.

Michael Keasey's final goal as a member of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse team meant a lot to him, his teammates and his coach. The goal proved to be the game-winner, allowing the Sea Kings to claim their first U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section title last week. Keasey and the Sea Kings played for more than their school during a 7-6 win against Palos Verdes that day. They played for Coach George Warren Mix's father, George Warren "Moose" Mix Sr., who passed away at 74 of heart failure on May 4, eight days before CdM completed its historic season.

NEWPORT COAST — The Sage Hill boys’ volleyball team hoped it could undermine the recent dominance of St. Margaret’s in a showdown for first place in the Academy League Thursday. Instead, the Tartans handily underscored their supremacy by thumping the Lightning, 25-20, 25-14, 25-12. It culminated a second straight unbeaten Academy campaign for the Tartans (26-4, 10-0 in league), who share the No. 1 ranking in CIF Southern Section Division V. What’s more, St. Margaret’s did not lose a game against league foes this season and has won 60 of 63 league games since finishing tied for third in 2008, when Sage Hill claimed the crown.
