In a span of just hours Friday, four Corona del Mar High juniors got both bling and bragging rights. Hoyt and Hugh Crance, Brett Greenlee and Chad Redfearn, all starters on defense for the CdM football team that won CIF Southern Section Southern Division, CIF State Southern California Regional Division III and CIF State Division III championships last fall, got their championship rings in a ceremony on campus. Later Friday afternoon, they again started on defense, this time for the CdM boys' lacrosse team against rival Newport Harbor.

Winning was something that the Corona del Mar High softball team got to experience just once in Carly Smith's first year at the helm. The Sea Kings came out on the wrong side of the score every time but once last year. They finished 1-21, only winning a nonleague game against Costa Mesa. CdM showed Tuesday that it could again beat the Mustangs, taking a 7-1 decision at Bonita Creek Park. But this time, it's more than just a footnote. It's a continuation of the momentum the Sea Kings have been building in the early part of the season.

When most people see TJ Defalco play volleyball they get caught up in the way the Huntington Beach High outside hitter can jump high and hit so hard. They are amazed to find out he's only a junior and begin to think how great he and the Oilers will be next year. Never mind 2015. The scary thought is that unbeaten Huntington Beach is only going to get better this season. Playing with their No. 3 setter, Davis Gillett, who is a backup libero, the Oilers swept Corona del Mar, 25-23, 25-17, 26-24, to capture the OC Championships Division 1 title Monday at Edison High.

MISSION VIEJO - Corona del Mar High boys' swimming coach Barry O'Dea called it a busy time of the year. On Saturday, that seemed like a huge understatement. O'Dea coached his CdM Aquatics 18-and-under club water polo team in the morning before he and many of his players made it to Capistrano Valley High for a swim meet against Loyola of Los Angeles, Edison and host Capo Valley. As soon as the meet ended, O'Dea and the Sea Kings were on the run again, back to CdM for a 3 p.m. water polo game against SOCAL.

It seemed all too quiet in the Edison High gym Saturday afternoon. There was an Orange County Championships Division 1 semifinal being played, but the Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball team made winning look so easy that most conversations could be heard in the stands. Some people talked about the upsets in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Others made weekend plans. And a few urged Edison to side out. But the Sea Kings just hummed along, taking out the Chargers, 25-16, 25-12, 25-21.

MISSION VIEJO - Senior Stephanie Samudro is the only top individual contributor returning from last year's Corona del Mar High girls' swim team, which finished a strong second place at the CIF Southern Section Division 1 finals. Graduation hit the Sea Kings hard. Brynne Wong is now swimming at Texas, as is Ally McCormick at BYU. As for the Greek twins, Stephania and Ioanna Haralabidis, they are currently trying to help the USC women's water polo team win its second straight NCAA Division 1 title.

MISSION VIEJO - There are three Mulvaney sisters on the field this year for the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team. Senior Kendall Mulvaney, one of four team captains, is joined by her freshman twin sisters Kennedy and Katherine. All three played substantial minutes in Thursday evening's nonleague game at Capistrano Valley. There was only one Eggeman out there for the Cougars. It just felt like more. Senior Riley Eggeman scored eight goals as Capo Valley rolled over the Sea Kings, 16-6.

It is rare that the Corona del Mar High boys' tennis team faces doubles teams that are playing better and more aggressively than the Sea Kings. It is even more rare that the Sea Kings lose a Pacific Coast League match to Northwood. The first rarity nearly led to the second on Wednesday afternoon at CdM. But the Sea Kings came up big in the end. Senior captain Carson Williams and junior Jonny Rhone won the decisive doubles set as the Sea Kings edged the Timberwolves, 10-8, in the league opener for both schools.

In some ways, the second day of the 15th annual Corona del Mar All-American Invitational tournament Saturday was tough for the host school. Corona del Mar finished eighth after suffering a pair of losses at The Tennis Club Newport Beach. The Sea Kings fell to Bellarmine Prep of San Jose, 6-2, before losing to Los Alamitos, 5-3, in the seventh-place match. Despite the tough finish, there were individual highlights for CdM. One was provided by CdM sophomore Bjorn Hoffmann, who won his only singles set of the weekend in the final one he played.

Corona del Mar High seniors Josh Kliger and Carson Williams played high-quality doubles Friday afternoon at CdM. That's nothing new for the Sea Kings' team captains and No. 1 doubles team, but they definitely were playing well against David Ball and Vikram Chari of the Menlo School of Atherton. In the end, it wasn't quite enough. Ball and Chari rallied from a break of serve down to win the set 8-7 in a tiebreaker. The set seemed indicative of the match. CdM battled, but Menlo was just too good.
