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.

CORONA DEL MAR - For the first time in recent memory, the Corona del Mar High boys' water polo team held a 50-50 raffle at Tuesday's key nonleague game against Long Beach Wilson. CdM team parent Jeff Ong won the $225 prize. Ong's pockets might have been fatter, but he was still as nervous as anyone else throughout the game. At the start, CdM's chances of winning its home opener looked considerably less than 50-50. But the Sea Kings battled back to claim a wild 10-7 overtime victory over the Bruins in a matchup of the top two teams in the CIF Southern Section Division II coaches' poll.

IRVINE - You have to go all the way back 22 years for the last time Corona del Mar High stood at 6-1. That same year, in the following football game, the Sea Kings lost. The Sea Kings almost experienced the same fate Thursday night. They didn't let history repeat itself. Oh, did they come close to getting upset. The top-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division survived, coming from behind to beat Woodbridge, 31-30, and remain undefeated in Pacific Coast League play.

Morgan Boukather was so ready for the Battle of the Bay. Corona del Mar High hadn't beaten Newport Harbor in the annual rivalry match since 2004, when the current seniors were still just sixth graders. But the Sea Kings have a strong senior class this year. And Boukather wasn't going to let the pneumonia she'd been battling throughout the week get in the way of beating rival Newport Harbor. She had 11 kills as CdM stunned the Sailors in three sets, 25-21, 25-23, 26-24 on Nov. 5. Two days earlier, she hadn't practiced.

SANTA ANA — Earlier in the week, when Corona del Mar High dropped its first baseball game, Coach John Emme said the Sea Kings stood no chance at winning the Foothill Bracket in the Newport Elks Tournament. The Sea Kings wound up winning their pool and sneaked into the bracket's semifinals. Their reward was facing a team that Emme said CdM has never defeated in the past 13 seasons. That changed Thursday, as Emme said CdM is now one victory away from claiming the tournament for the first time.

NEWPORT BEACH - Nobody needs extra motivation before the Battle of the Bay girls' volleyball match. But when Newport Harbor High ran onto its home court Saturday night in blue T-shirts that said "We run this town" in white letters, rival Corona del Mar definitely noticed. "We don't look at their shirts like, 'Oh, they think they're going to beat us,'" CdM senior libero Mary McKennon said. "We look at their shirts like they want to fight us. It's going to be a big battle no matter what … [but]
