REDONDO BEACH - On the way to its match Tuesday, the bus the Corona del Mar High girls' volleyball team rode in broke down. The Sea Kings had not yet left Orange County and they already had to deal with an issue. Once the Sea Kings made it to Redondo Union on the bus, their season stalled. They didn't stay long as Redondo Union swept, 25-21, 25-17, 25-21, in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 1-AA playoffs. The Sea Kings went home early, much earlier than in three of their previous four section playoff runs.

Joseph Boo REDONDO BEACH - The first game of a scheduled doubleheader between Corona del Mar High and host Redondo Union's baseball team almost went in the record book as a fluke loss instead of a suspended game for CdM. On the last play of the game, Redondo Union hit a supposed game-winning "triple" in a thick fog with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a 7-6 lead. Redondo Union's (3-2) Ryan Sharman hit a towering fly ball to center field that under normal circumstances would have been a routine out. Instead, the ball was completely engulfed by the fog and landed 30 feet away from CdM's center fielder, scoring a runner from third and confusing everyone, including the umpires.

All Dan Glenn needed Sunday was a pair of sunglasses and a guitar. After the Newport Harbor High girls’ volleyball coach learned of his team’s fate in the CIF Southern Section Division I-AA playoffs, he felt like singing the blues. The Sailors (23-3) ended the season ranked No. 3 in the final CIF Division I-AA coaches’ poll, but they are the No. 4 seed in the playoffs, on the same side of the bracket as top-seeded Mira Costa (29-0). Newport Harbor will play host to Palos Verdes Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the first round.

MANHATTAN BEACH — Going off in the second game was a buzzer, an unusual sound during a volleyball match. It caused Newport Harbor High’s players to stop for a moment and look around. They couldn’t believe what just happened — play continued. There was disbelief, also among Mira Costa’s fans with what was transpiring at home. Mira Costa needed a wake-up call, fast, with the Sailors in control. The nation’s top-ranked program was about to suffer its first defeat and at the wrong time.

No one really knows whether the season is still alive for the Newport Harbor High girls’ volleyball team. Still, Alex Penewell showed up for practice Thursday as did the rest of her teammates. The start of this one was unusual. Almost as odd as working out without any guarantees that there is a match to play next week. Nothing the senior middle blocker can do about that. But just wait until Sunday when the CIF Southern Section releases its four entries into the Division II state tournament.

Barry Faulkner Native American lineage has nothing to do with Billy Eagle's colorful last name. If that were the case, perhaps he'd be known as Billy Death to Doubles, or Billy Robs With Leather, even Billy Pitcher's Best Friend. By any name, Corona del Mar High baseball coach John Emme has never seen center-field defense this sweet. "We root for the ball to be hit to center field, even in practice," said Emme, who in his third season of watching Eagle roam the varsity outfield for the Sea Kings, continues to marvel at his defensive skills.

Kelsey Humphreys just got back from a special trip in Louisville, Ky. One day she watched the women's volleyball Final Four inside the KFC Yum! Center. The next day she competed in the same arena, on the same court. As one of 24 senior girls, Humphreys played in the Under Armour High School All-America Volleyball Match on Dec. 14. Talk about an experience for the Corona del Mar High setter. "It was a real cool atmosphere," Humphreys said. "[Fans] didn't fill the arena as much as they did for the NCAA semifinal matches [between Oregon and Penn State, and Texas and Michigan]

NEWPORT BEACH — The shortest player on the Newport Harbor girls' volleyball team sprawled on the court late in the first set. Momentum was swinging minute to minute against visiting Long Beach Wilson, but at that second there was just one thing on the mind of 5-foot-6 sophomore libero Hunter Jennings. Jennings just wanted to get her hand under the ball before it hit the court. At 25-25, the Sailors needed it Thursday night. Her big dig led to a tip kill from senior Sarah Buckingham, setting up a set point the Tars converted on a Wilson hitting error.
