CORONA DEL MAR - Max Stone is the kind of basketball player who can come off the bench and drain a three-pointer on his first shot. That is exactly what the junior did Tuesday, as he opened the second quarter for Corona del Mar High with a three. Coach Ryan Schachter calls Stone his best outside threat, so he expects Stone to shoot whenever he is open. Stone passed up quality looks in the second, third and fourth quarters, only to frustrate his coach. Schachter needed someone to stop Woodbridge's fourth-quarter run, which gave the visitors their first lead since the opening quarter.

Under Coach Ryan Schachter, the Corona del Mar High boys' basketball team has finished first in the Pacific Coast League in four of his first five seasons. In Schachter's sixth season at the school, the Sea Kings are back in contention for a league crown. But they're looking up, instead of down. The Sea Kings have reeled off three straight wins in league play, putting them in second place, two games behind first-place Woodbridge. The Sea Kings can get closer to the top spot on Tuesday, when they have a showdown at home against Woodbridge at 7 p.m. Three weeks ago, CdM (12-9, 4-2 in league)

Kyle Kelley admitted that being named to the prestigious Parade All-America Football Team - as one of the top 50 high school players in the nation - was a surprise. But that honor, which was released by the magazine earlier this month, certainly could not have surprised college recruiters from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, Washington State, Oklahoma, Florida, North Carolina State, Vanderbilt, UCLA, Utah and Colorado. Those were the schools that offered Kelley a football scholarship, at least, "those are the only ones I can think of right now," he said.

CORONA DEL MAR - For the first 10 minutes of Corona del Mar High's Pacific Coast League opener Friday, Coach Ryan Schachter said it looked like his boys' basketball team was stuck in the mud. The goal before the home contest against Irvine was for the Sea Kings to reach 70 points. At the pace they were going, half of that point total seemed more likely. Then in a 47-second span, CdM no longer was in a mucky situation. The Sea Kings can thank Blake Grable for turning a one-point game into a rout.

NEWPORT BEACH - The Newport Harbor High boys' basketball team spent the past week out of town together. The Sailors traveled to Chicago. They played in a tournament 90 minutes outside of the Windy City. They even practiced on the Notre Dame campus. Before the New Year, they returned to Newport Beach. Their resolution had to have been to get back on the winning side. On their first chance this year, the Sailors failed. The losing continued as Newport Harbor lost at home to Woodbridge, 54-41, in a nonleague contest on Tuesday.

Woodbridge High has developed a reputation of success in cross country, but this season both the boys' and girl's teams are exceeding the expectations of many, including those of their coach. Warriors Coach George Varvas believes in his team and knows each of his runner's capabilities. But even he had to pinch himself after the Pacific Coast League finals at Irvine Regional Park Nov. 4. Woodbridge not only swept both the boys' and girls' team titles, but they set school records with their times - the boys running the three-mile course in a combined 76 minutes, 3 seconds and the girls in 86:28.

CORONA DEL MAR - A largely inexperienced Corona del Mar High girls' tennis team has gained that experience throughout the season. The Sea Kings, who returned just two starters from a year ago, have shown improvement throughout the second half of their Pacific Coast League schedule. It probably still won't be enough to make the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs. CdM lost a key league match at home to Woodbridge on Tuesday, falling on games, 76-72. The result, along with Northwood's win over Irvine on games, all but eliminated CdM from playoff contention for the first time in recent memory.
