Bill Sumner has seen fire, and he's seen rain. But the Corona del Mar High track and field coach could only think of three girls whose drive and passion matched Sarah Cummings, and Sumner estimated 10,000 student athletes have run under his vigilance and guidance since he began coaching. "Sarah takes it to another level. She's a special kid," Sumner said of the school's Female Athlete of the Year. "There are very few kids that come through our program that you have to get to cut back a little bit. You see them once about every 10 years.

They were hoping to break the record of 19:56, but there was no one on the track to push them. Buckley finished the race nearly 150 meters ahead of the next girl, said CdM track coach Bill Sumner.

Corona del Mar High senior Sarah Cummings and junior Shelby Buckley have seemingly done it all this year. The Sea Kings duo helped Corona del Mar High win its third consecutive CIF Southern Section Division III title, before defending their CIF State title in Fresno on Nov. 25. Today, at Balboa Park in San Diego, they're going national. By finishing in the top 10 individually at the Nike Team Nationals last weekend in Portland, Ore., Buckley and Cummings qualified for today's 28th annual Foot Locker Cross Country National Championships.

On the girls' cross country team at Corona del Mar High, there is never much time to savor the previous season's success. The focus is always on what is ahead and how to improve on the past. Corona del Mar won its fourth state championship last season and finished sixth at the national championships. The Sea Kings lost one of its best runners ever in Annie St. Geme, but Coach Bill Sumner wants to improve. "It's important that we do or we'll go backward," said Sumner, who is entering his 23rd year.

CORONA DEL MAR — Starting today, Corona del Mar High girls' track team members Sarah Cummings, Hilary May, Shelby Buckley and Allison Damon will compete at the CIF State Track and Field Championships in Sacramento. "There's more where that came from" seemed to be the theme of Thursday's Coastal Athletic League junior high track finals at CdM, at least on the girls' side. CdM won the overall girls' title, with the Sea Kings' total of 265 points easily topping defending champion Dwyer's tally of 158. The CdM girls also won the eighth-grade and C (athletes under 5-foot-4)

If you're watching her run at a track meet, there are two ways to pick out Sarah Cummings: No. 1: If she's not first, she'll be at the front of the pack. No. 2: It's impossible to miss the mop of curly bright red hair pulled into a ponytail, especially when she's surrounded by her three blonde teammates. Cummings, a Princeton-bound senior at Corona del Mar High, will be running the 3,200 meters event at the CIF Southern Section Masters Meet this Friday at Cerritos College.

There have been several stories written about Bill Sumner in The Daily Pilot , but there's one that he would probably rather not have published. It's not his style to talk about himself. Talk about his teams and his athletes? Yeah, he'll do that. But to talk about that one early morning back in mid-December, he would rather leave that story untold. But there's too much drama there, too much symbolism of a man who has been a special coach at Corona del Mar High. On that early morning, Sumner lay alone, flat on his face, helpless in despair because of a kidney stone that enveloped the 59-year-old man in extreme pain.

NORWALK— Shelby Buckley is not slow. Certainly not on a track, and not in the academic sense either. Buckley, who qualified for the CIF Southern Section Masters meet and helped Corona del Mar win its third straight CIF title, is a bit of an anomaly these days. Newspapers such as the New York Times have documented the increased pressure that has been put on the shoulders of modern high school girls to do it all: earn a four-point-something grade point average, be the best in a sport or activity, even have a perfect relationship, if they can find the time to have one at all. And when that's all over, there's still the matter of getting into a top-tier institution as the Ivy Leagues are mailing more and more rejection letters.
