It's been said, those who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it. The Newport Harbor High boys' volleyball team will most likely ponder this when two losses come to mind as the Sailors prepare to open the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs against Santa Margarita (21-15) at home tonight at 7. One loss is as recent as last week, while the other comes from last year. Newport Harbor (19-15) lost in three games to Back Bay rival Corona del Mar on May 4. The Sailors had won six straight heading into their match against the Sea Kings.

Steve Virgen CORONA DEL MAR - Like the flu bug that has recently struck the Corona del Mar girls water polo team, Santa Margarita left the Sea Kings sickened with a 7-4 nonleague loss, Saturday at CdM's pool. Yet, health is just about the only concern for CdM (9-9) these days. The Sea Kings had opportunities to take advantage against the No. 4 team in Orange County. The Eagles (10-6) built a 5-1 lead in the first 11 minutes, which proved to be too much for CdM. But, the Sea Kings scored two goals in a 42-second span of the fourth period to pull their deficit to 6-4 with 1:42 remaining.

COTO DE CAZA ? The Corona del Mar High girls' golf team already had an undefeated Pacific Coast League season. Going for an unbeaten regular season proved a little more tricky proposition on Thursday at the Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club. "I feel like I'm dreaming," a frustrated Cierra Gaytan-Leach said to CdM teammate Jessica Milner as she finished up on hole No. 9. Her teammates could relate. Playing at its home course, Santa Margarita upended the Sea Kings, 216-227, ending dreams of an unbeaten regular season for Corona del Mar. The Sea Kings (12-1-1)

NEWPORT BEACH — Like father, like son. Almost for Bruce Caldwell and his son Kyle. Bruce literally sat on the edge of his seat watching Kyle star on the same volleyball court he did back for the Newport Harbor High boys’ team in 1980. A lot was on the line against Santa Margarita. Kyle finally let dad breathe easier. He lifted a fist at the end, signaling to Bruce that he’s about to catch him. The versatile senior led the Sailors to the CIF Southern Section Division I championship match after Newport Harbor swept Santa Margarita, 25-22, 25-20, 25-16, in the semifinals Wednesday night.

CORONA DEL MAR — Early on in the season it seems Stefan Kaluz is not only jostling for position down low, but for a shot without receiving a shot to the back, arm, chest, or face. Corona del Mar High boys’ basketball coach Ryan Schachter blames the overt physical play on his 6-foot-9 senior center’s size. “He’s an easy target because he’s so big,” Schachter said. “I think a lot of times they [referee] for size and they think that the big guy can take the punishment.

CORONA DEL MAR - Emily Loughlin surprised the Corona del Mar High girls' water polo team at the start of Friday's nonleague game. The 6-foot tall Santa Margarita junior center spun her defender and scored the game's first goal. Loughlin then drew a penalty shot, which she converted. Loughlin's goals were no laughing matter for CdM, which found itself down two goals less than two minutes into the game. But the Sea Kings adjusted. The Eagles were only able to double that output over the next 26-plus minutes.

CORONA DEL MAR — The Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball team ruined one opponent's prom last Saturday by claiming the CIF Southern Section Division II title. The Sea Kings wrecked another one. This time, they did so to get a chance to play for another postseason title. You cannot say host CdM did not accommodate Santa Margarita on Wednesday. The Sea Kings moved the CIF Southern California Regional Division II semifinal a day early because the Eagles had their prom on Thursday, the original date of the match.

The fourth goal was the program's first CIF title. Middleton said before the CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal match against Santa Margarita that his team, the top seed, had the ability and the talent.

Hoose, a senior captain for the CdM girls' water polo team, has dealt with her condition of having essential familiar tremors her whole life. "It always happens," she said. "I can't hold coffee, and it's hard for me to write sometimes ... I don't think about it in the game. " In the game, the tremors sometimes make it difficult for her to make fast movements.

Leave it to longtime Newport Harbor High water polo coach Bill Barnett to compare his team's six-on-five to the old comic strip character Fearless Fosdick. Fearless Fosdick, a detective who was a parody of Dick Tracy, ran in cartoonist Al Capp's comic strip "Li'l Abner. " The strip ended in 1977, roughly 20 years before the current Sailors players were born. But as Barnett watched six-on-five shot after six-on-five shot get field blocked by Santa Margarita on Saturday afternoon, the comparison certainly made sense.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Corona del Mar High sophomore Maddie Musselman managed to score a key goal, get a key steal and frustrate her head coach - all within the final minute of the game. The first two actions were key in helping the Sea Kings earn an 8-6 victory over host Santa Margarita in the Holiday Cup quarterfinals on Friday. Even the third ended up providing a unifying moment for the Sea Kings. Musselman dumped the ball with seven seconds left on the shot clock. CdM Coach Ross Sinclair, who ended up a bit aggravated by this, said after the game that she was looking at the scoreboard and saw a "one," which she thought indicated the shot clock but actually indicated that CdM had one timeout left.

There are some changes when it comes to this weekend's Holiday Cup girls' water polo tournament. The tournament is being played after New Year's Day, for one. And Corona del Mar High is not hosting, as new locker rooms are being installed at the Sea Kings' pool. Newport Harbor and Santa Margarita are the hosts for the two-day tournament, which begins Friday morning. What has not changed, however, is that the 16-team tournament is stacked and provides a good early-season measuring stick for the top programs in the CIF Southern Section.

One of the best parts of this job is talking to Scott Meyer, Corona del Mar High's football coach. From the first time we spoke, he was honest and he didn't have to be honest. He didn't expect my call on March 31, 2011. He had no idea who I was, but I found out CdM hired Meyer as its next football coach. I introduced myself and then asked him if he indeed was taking over at CdM. Without hesitating, Meyer said, "Yes. " He easily could've hung up, or said, "No comment," but he didn't.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - The final tiebreaker ended quickly, maybe a little bit too quickly for Corona del Mar High freshman Jasie Dunk on Wednesday at Santa Margarita High. Dunk and her sophomore partner, Siena Sharf, edged out a 7-6 (8-6) victory over Maddie Gehrich and Alexis Coglitore of Santa Margarita. The tiebreaker and set were over on a winning volley by Sharf, much to the surprise of Dunk. "Yeah, I thought we were going to 10 [points]," Dunk said with a laugh after the match.
