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.

The Battle for the Bay tends to open the track and field season for the Corona del Mar and Newport Harbor high schools. They pushed the meet back a month this season because the teams in their respective leagues are on spring break this week. With no one else to face, the Sailors traveled to CdM on Thursday. One school ended a streak and another continued one in the Back Bay rivalry. The Newport Harbor boys pulled out a 65-62 win, beating CdM for the first time in five seasons.

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.

Junior midfielder Shelby Brown called the end of the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer season "crazy," and nobody who saw the games would argue. Two tight wins on the road at the end of league helped the Sea Kings win their fourth straight outright league title. In the first, CdM had to survive a last-minute, penalty-kick attempt against Beckman. In the second, the Sea Kings had to rally from a two-goal deficit at Northwood in the final 20 minutes. CdM then earned two shootout wins in its first two games of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, against Fountain Valley and Upland.

Winning a Pacific Coast League game is a definite goal of the Corona del Mar softball team this year. It might not sound like much, but it would mean a ton to the program. The Sea Kings, who have had a strong preseason, haven't won a league game since 2008. They will not win any by playing "scared," as their coach said they did during Tuesday's league opener against Irvine at home. CdM fell behind early and suffered an 11-1, six-inning, "mercy rule" loss to the Vaqueros. It is the program's 51st straight league loss.

TUSTIN - As Corona del Mar High began to mount a comeback on Friday, an assistant coach told the boys' lacrosse team of what he believed was the inevitable. "They're going to fall," said Jeremy Sieverts, referring to Beckman. In the past, that has always been the case. The Sea Kings always beat the Patriots, and they always beat them up badly. The teams met a dozen times in the previous six seasons, CdM winning by an average of 11 goals per game. Eleven goals are how much the Sea Kings needed to score in their latest matchup to knock off Beckman again.

Going into the week, the Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball team had three Pacific Coast League home matches before it skips town. Spring break is next week and the Sea Kings are bound for Hawaii. The Sea Kings played the second match on Thursday, and they dropped their first set in league this season. That's all they lost, before topping Northwood, 25-11, 25-16, 23-25, 25-15, to improve to 4-0 in league. Corona del Mar returns to its gym on Friday to face University at 5:15 p.m. The contest wraps up the first round of league for the defending league champion.

In terms of the rankings, the result of Wednesday's Pacific Coast League girls' lacrosse match had to be considered an upset. Beckman came into the match ranked No. 4 in Southern California by laxpower.com, and CdM was No. 10. The Patriots, who own impressive wins over Los Alamitos and Mater Dei, were also the top-ranked team in Orange County. CdM was again at the No. 10 spot. The team that always seems to have the "LAX power" in the league is Beckman. But CdM might just be ready to change that this year.
