The road to a potential CIF State Division II title got a little bit shorter for the Corona del Mar High girls’ volleyball team. About an hour shorter, that is. After a two-hour drive to first-round opponent Ramona of San Diego County Tuesday, the Sea Kings (29-6) will venture about an hour via freeway to Elsinore High in Wildomar for tonight’s CIF Southern California Regional semifinal at 7. CdM Co-Coach Darryl Gan said the team bus will depart CdM around 2:30 p.m., allowing for plenty of time to eat dinner and, about 90 minutes prior to the first serve, conduct serving and passing drills to shake off any stiffness the long commute may create.

Corona del Mar High girls’ soccer coach Bryan Middleton remembers what happened the last time the Sea Kings faced Canyon of Canyon Country. In 2003, CdM lost, 3-2, in overtime in a CIF Southern Section Division II quarterfinal match that included a brawl with five minutes left in regulation. Middleton, of course, is looking for a different outcome this year, as the Sea Kings (11-4-7) will play host to the Cowboys (14-4-2) in a second-round match today at 3 p.m. The Sea Kings opened the playoffs with a 5-0 win over visiting Rowland Thursday and won the coin flip to have a home game today.
