As first-year varsity players, Corona del Mar High boys' tennis coach Jamie Gresh knows that sophomores Ari Coskinas and Oliver Kim feel that extra little bit of pressure.

"Just getting on the board first with a win kind of set the tone for their day," Gresh said. "They're settling down, not getting so nervous in these matches.

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.

Gresh said that Downing is not playing high school tennis this season, choosing to focus on junior tournaments.

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.

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.
