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.

GARDEN GROVE — One after the other, the Corona del Mar High girls' basketball team lost its two tallest and most productive players to fouls. Natalia Bruening and Krista Anderson didn't spend much time together on the court on Saturday. They both picked up their second fouls in the first quarter, then one each in the second and third quarters. One more foul by Bruening, a 6-foot-3 center, and Anderson, a 6-2 forward, and their evening was over, and most likely their team's season.

The last time that the Corona del Mar High girls' water polo team played Santa Barbara, CdM sophomore Maddie Musselman burned the Dons. She scored five goals in the Irvine Southern California Championships quarterfinal game Feb. 7, matching Santa Barbara's total by herself. Santa Barbara Coach Mark Walsh dedicated more defensive attention to Musselman in the second meeting Saturday, in a CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal game at CdM. Musselman still almost killed the Dons.

When Andrew Francini and Nate Pozin aren't playing soccer for Corona del Mar High, you can find the two playing inside a garage on Point Loma Drive. They cannot blast the soccer ball inside, just music. Francini and Pozin are part of a three-member Indie Rock band. The band's name is "Point Loma" and it named itself after the street it jams on. The teenagers use Pozin's garage as their jam pad and it can get loud whenever Francini is on guitar, Pozin is on the drums, and Kyle Mohan is on the mic. Neighbors can hear the three CdM seniors rock out and they have complained.

Corona del Mar High senior girls' soccer goalie Kendall Mulvaney said she knew Fountain Valley was going to shoot to the right - her left - in the shootout. It worked the first time the teams played, in late December when the Barons won a consolation game at the North Orange County Classic via shootout. But Friday night at Jim Scott Stadium, Mulvaney, the four-year varsity player, was ready. And, while CdM surely has a long way to go on its quest for its first-ever CIF title, the Sea Kings just as surely have been giving their fans their money's worth in the last three games.

In the CIF Southern Section postseason, no measure of respect is awarded free. It's earned, one possession, one game, one victory at a time. Perhaps no team in the 3AA Division boys' basketball playoffs knows this better than Palm Desert High, a team that entered Friday's second-round game at Corona del Mar seeking respect as much as a win. The No. 13-seeded Aztecs, who went 12-0 to win the Desert Valley League, have made the playoffs six...

On the surface, Corona del Mar High's 3-0 win in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 boys' soccer playoffs looks like an easy win. It was far from that on Thursday. Glendale, traveling a long distance for the second time in three days during the postseason, made it hard on the Sea Kings through most of the match, until the hosts scored two late goals. A goal on a penalty kick and one on a 35-yard free kick doomed Glendale's chances of coming back again in the playoffs.

The first home game of the postseason felt more like an away game Thursday night for the Corona del Mar High girls' basketball team. The first week of the CIF Southern Section playoffs also is "ski week" in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, so student supporters were at a bare minimum. There were only about 30 CdM fans in the stands at opening tip-off. Visiting Orange High, by contrast, had a loud and spirited student section and brought cheerleaders. "At times it felt like [an away game]

As players warmed up in the Corona del Mar High gym, Magnolia Coach Matt Tweed talked to a couple of fans in the stands that made the road trip to support his boys' basketball team. The topic was running, not the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA basketball playoffs. He told the fans about CdM's well-known distance coach, Bill Sumner. The school's basketball team ended up running circles around Magnolia on the court. Fourth-seeded CdM ran away from the Sentinels in the second half en route to a 58-27 win on Wednesday.
