It's more of the same, with a twist, for the Corona del Mar High football team. Last week, in a last-second loss to El Toro, the Chargers only threw six passes the entire game. For the most part it was run, run, run. This week, the Sea Kings (1-1) will face Troy (1-0), with a wing T offense that has shown the ability to produce with the run, while also mixing in an explosive passing game. The Sea Kings, ranked No. 5 in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division, meet the Warriors, ranked No. 2 in the CIF Southeast Division, tonight at 7 at Fullerton High.

CORONA DEL MAR — The wind can drive you crazy. Playing Corona del Mar High in girls’ water polo and having to go against the wind in the second half proved too maddening for Foothill to handle Saturday. The Sea Kings ran away with a 9-1 nonleague home victory to improve to 11-0 on the season. CdM, which is expected to be the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division I when the new poll is released, turned it on after leading 3-1 at halftime. Margot Money said it had been 10 days since CdM last played a match.

ALISO VIEJO — The Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball team was the odds-on favorite to advance in Saturday night's CIF Southern Section Division II quarterfinal match. Establishing an odds-on favorite to lead the team in kills would be a bit more problematic for the Sea Kings and their fans. Junior outside hitter Parker Brown did the honors in this one, pounding down 12 of them as CdM eased to a 25-14, 25-16, 25-15 victory at Aliso Niguel. Top-seeded Corona del Mar will play host to Trabuco Hills in a semifinal match at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The majority of high school football coaches want to teach their players to become men who will be productive in whatever career they choose. Winning? That's usually a bonus. Well, members of Corona del Mar High School's football team have earned plenty of the bonus this season. They are working hard and having fun. Winning is fun. Coach Scott Meyer's Sea Kings are 14-0, and last week they won their third straight CIF Southern Section Southern Division championship. No other football team in the school's history had won three straight CIF section titles.

Under Coach Ryan Schachter, the Corona del Mar High boys' basketball team has finished first in the Pacific Coast League in four of his first five seasons. In Schachter's sixth season at the school, the Sea Kings are back in contention for a league crown. But they're looking up, instead of down. The Sea Kings have reeled off three straight wins in league play, putting them in second place, two games behind first-place Woodbridge. The Sea Kings can get closer to the top spot on Tuesday, when they have a showdown at home against Woodbridge at 7 p.m. Three weeks ago, CdM (12-9, 4-2 in league)

DANA POINT — As Corona del Mar High sophomore tennis player Melissa Matsuoka walked by, teammate Azadeh Nazemi tried to cheer her up. “Melissa, good job,” Nazemi said after the 6-2 loss. “You got some games!” Matsuoka gave Nazemi a quizzical look, but Nazemi wasn’t fooling around. “No, I’m serious!” Nazemi said. Games were hard to get off the Dana Hills girls’ tennis team Wednesday, especially in singles.

He's in his fourth season in charge of Newport Harbor, CdM's Back Bay rival. The schools have played five times since Todd moved across the bay. The sixth meeting is Tuesday, when Todd guides the No. 15-seeded Sailors (8-8) to his former stomping ground to open the U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section South Division playoffs against No. 2 CdM (13-1)

In a Pacific Coast League game featuring first-place Beckman against fourth-place Corona del Mar it appeared it would be a tight one … through the first three innings. But then came chaos in the fourth inning. Well, it was chaos for CdM. Yet it was a bonafide, two-out rally for the Patriots, who scored seven runs and went on to beat the Sea Kings, 11-2, Friday at CdM. It left the Sea Kings (6-16, 4-7 in league) needing to win their final four regular-season games for a playoff berth and it left the Patriots (20-2, 10-1)

Williams said the man was in the men's open division of the 114th annual Ojai Tennis Tournament, and he needed a warmup partner. He hit with the man for about 90 minutes. "I couldn't find him on the draw," Williams said. "He said his first name is Dane, but that must have been short for something. He was really good. He needed a warmup [partner]

Corona del Mar High Coach Steve Conti says he was a little bit smarter with his scheduling. Rather than start the season with Los Angeles Loyola again, he decided to push it back toward the end of it. Almost half of his boys' volleyball team plays a sport in the winter, and against Loyola, Conti preferred CdM to be at full strength. After last season's opener at Loyola, where Conti said it looked like his young Sea Kings had never played volleyball before, losing in three sets, the move made sense.

IRVINE - Do not underestimate the girls' water polo contingent on the Corona del Mar High girls' swim team. Two weeks ago it was junior Grace Morgan stepping in on the "A" relays, helping CdM win the Battle of the Bay for another year. On Tuesday afternoon at University High, sophomore Bridgett Storm took center stage. Storm sure picked a great time to win her first 200-yard freestyle race of the season. She gave her team some early-meet momentum, helping CdM accomplish something it hadn't done in eight years.

IRVINE - The day after many of the players on the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team returned from the three-day Stagecoach Country Music Festival, they had a huge Pacific Coast League game against Beckman. The festival was much more fun for the Sea Kings than the game at the Patriots' field Monday. CdM stayed competitive for most of the contest, but at the end the goals dried up, just like the festival grounds in the desert in Indio. The resulting 13-9 Beckman victory means that CdM is most likely denied its first outright league title in program history.

Go to a Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse game, and you probably won't hear the name "Sabrina" uttered once by any of the Sea Kings. Senior Sabrina Smith? She goes by "Bean," a funny nickname for the tall and slender Smith, who stands 5-foot-10. When she was a baby Smith's parents, Todd and Sherry, called her "Sabrina Bo-Bina," which was soon shortened to "Bean. " Then, in first grade, there was another Sabrina in her class at Harbor View Elementary. The teacher asked if either of the girls had a nickname.

Since the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse team suffered its first setback three weeks ago, the Sea Kings have been rolling. They continued their strong play and exacted some revenge at home on Thursday. The Sea Kings walloped St. Margaret's, 12-3, collecting their sixth straight victory in front a big a crowd. The result turned out much differently than last season's two meetings between the Orange County powerhouse programs. Back then, the Tartans handed CdM its second and third losses, the third one ended the Sea Kings' season.
