IRVINE - A festive atmosphere prevailed at the start of Tuesday's Pacific Coast League softball game at University High. The game against visiting Corona del Mar was the school's "game of the week," and a large student population checked out the action. University wore pink uniforms, in honor of breast cancer awareness. The Trojans had to be just tickled pink with the game's result, too. Senior Joselynn Solis threw a two-hitter and struck out 10 as University blanked Corona del Mar, 7-0. University (6-11, 1-2)

At the end of a historic season in late December, reporters asked Coach Scott Meyer about next year. Can his football team repeat a perfect season? The Sea Kings had just beaten Atherton Sacred Heart Prep, 27-15, in the CIF State Division III Bowl Game to become the first team in the state to produce a 16-0 season. Meyer, standing inside the tunnel at the StubHub Center in Carson, tried not to look ahead. "We're not going to think about that for a little while," Meyer said back then, before going into the number of starters expected to return, 10 on defense and five on offense, and the challenging nonleague schedule next season.

The Battle of the Bay game is special in each sport, but in girls' lacrosse it's maybe just a bit more friendly. The Newport Wedge girls' lacrosse program was started eight years ago by Lauren Mulvaney and the Davin family. Players from both Corona del Mar and Newport Harbor high schools have started playing there in middle school, before moving on to high school. CdM Coach Aly Simons has coached both future Sea Kings and Sailors in the Wedge program. She and Newport Harbor Coach Matt Armstrong have a good working relationship.

Corona del Mar High girls' swimming coach Doug Volding is always a bit apprehensive before the Battle of the Bay swim meet. He had reason to be nervous Wednesday. Volding found out shortly before the meet began that one of his top club swimmers, freshman Nicole Lin, would be out of action. Volding wasn't positive why, though he heard she may have hurt her shoulder. For the Sea Kings, who were already missing one of their best sprinters in Sami Pratt (dislocated collarbone), this was obviously cause for concern.

It was a tough assignment for a Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team coming off spring break. The Sea Kings had to play host to Foothill in a nonleague game. Foothill is ranked No. 1 in the state of California by laxpower.com, as well as No. 3 in the western United States behind two teams from Colorado. Yes, this was a powerhouse, undefeated Foothill team coming off an 18-3 thrashing of CdM's Pacific Coast League rival Beckman on Friday. It would have been easy to lose by a comfortable margin, then talk about improving in the coming weeks for the U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section South Division playoffs.

Sophomore went up against sophomore with one out, the bases loaded and the score tied, 4-4. This wasn't necessarily a play that defined young players pitcher Connor Brown of Estancia High and Evan Larsen of Corona del Mar. It actually turned out being a bit anticlimactic as a pass ball became the final play when Nick Premer scored to give CdM a 5-4 victory in a Beach Pit Classic game at CdM Monday. But both players, Larsen's a pitcher too, made plays throughout the game that caused their coaches to continue to be excited about their respective futures.
