Kelly Tam fell in love with basketball at a young age, but you can't play basketball without a hoop. Tam said she begged her parents, Leo and Marge, for one. The response wasn't quite what Kelly wanted to hear. "They were like, 'Oh, where are we going to put it? We don't have any room,'" Kelly Tam recalled. So Kelly took matters into her own hands. She made good use of the basketball court in the One Ford Road community of Newport Beach, working long hours to improve her game.

Around the start of Thursday's nonleague match, Palos Verdes High boys' tennis coach Danny Moscovici had a question for Corona del Mar Coach Jamie Gresh. Moscovici inquired about the whereabouts of CdM junior Chaz Downing, an integral part of the teams that reached the CIF Southern Section Division 1 title match each of the last two years. Gresh said that Downing is not playing high school tennis this season, choosing to focus on junior tournaments. Palos Verdes took advantage at the CdM courts, winning seven singles sets to post a 10-8 victory in the battle of schools with Sea Kings as mascots.

LAKE ELSINORE - What the Lakeside High girls' basketball team lacks in height, it makes up for in toughness. The experienced Lancers, who came within one win of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA title game last year, met up Saturday with a Corona del Mar team that hadn't been on that stage before. Five-foot-seven junior forward Victoria Sosa got nine rebounds in the first quarter alone, setting the tone against a CdM team that features 6-3 sophomore Natalia Bruening and 6-2 sophomore Krista Anderson.

TUSTIN - They came back to the place where it all started, the crazy four straight wins that propelled the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer team to its fourth straight Pacific Coast League title and the CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinals. Tustin High felt different than it did 17 days earlier, when CdM beat Beckman to start the run. On Friday night an umbrella was needed. The rain was on again, off again, and heavy at times. The result also was different. It didn't go the Sea Kings' way. Foothill sophomore forward Sarah Moss scored in the 66th minute and the No. 3-seeded Knights hung on for a 1-0 quarterfinal victory, ending CdM's season.

In the spring, Corona del Mar High's Kelly Tam played on the same girls' club basketball team with the starters on the San Juan Hills basketball team. "I know how they play," Tam said. Tam reminded her club teammates how dangerous she can be with the ball in her hands. In the final minute of the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA playoffs, the host Sea Kings went to Tam with the game on the line on Wednesday. She hadn't made a basket all night. She wasn't even CdM's first option.

ANAHEIM - When the Corona del Mar High boys' soccer team showed up at Anaheim, the uneven field, with patches of grass, looked like the one the Sea Kings play on at home. Anaheim Coach Joe Chavez learned his team wasn't the only one in Orange County that plays on a poor field. "We're used to this," CdM Coach George Larsen told Chavez, who said he began to think, "Oh gosh! It might play in their favor. " While the Sea Kings played on the road in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 playoffs on Tuesday, they were 3 minutes away from getting the type of result they do at home.

Miranda Stiver was more than a little bit intimidated when she entered the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer program as a sophomore. Stiver moved from Arcadia to Newport Beach in the fall of 2011 with her mother, step-dad and younger brother. The family wanted to be closer to the headquarters of PIMCO, the Newport Beach-based investment management firm for which Miranda's mother, Christina, works. The commute for Christina was indeed severely reduced. Miranda did not have so much trouble fitting in at CdM in the classroom, but on the soccer field she had doubts.
