The unforced mistakes that have plagued the Corona del Mar High girls' volleyball team were its downfall again Tuesday night in a 15-8, 15-9, 15-10 loss to host University of San Diego High in the first round of the Division III state championships. "It has definitely been an up-and-down type of season," Sea King Coach Steve Conti said. "They took advantage of our mistakes and made the most of them."

Not only did Newport Beach Corona del Mar extend its school-record winning streak Saturday afternoon, it made a bit of history with a convincing 27-15 triumph over Atherton Sacred Heart Prep in the CIF Division III state championship bowl game at StubHub Center in Carson. The Sea Kings became the first California team to win 16 games in a season and they did it by turning to the potent rushing attack that has been a trademark of the program during its run to three consecutive section titles.

Newport Harbor, ranked second in Orange County, cruised past fourth-ranked Corona del Mar, 15-4, 15-5, 15-10, in a Sea View League boys' volleyball match Tuesday at Newport Harbor. Alan Limon had 16 kills, and setter Ty Tramblie had 46 assists, 15 digs and four blocks for Newport Harbor. "That was the best we've played all year," Newport Harbor Coach Dan Glenn said. Although Newport Harbor (5-0) was sharp, Corona del Mar looked sluggish.

Griffith Amies of Newport Beach Corona del Mar High came within one field goal of setting a state season record, but he couldn't be too disappointed after the Sea Kings' 35-10 victory over Garden Grove in the Southern Section Southern Division final Saturday afternoon in front of 6,870 at Angel Stadium. The Sea Kings forced two safeties and limited Garden Grove to 82 yards rushing. Junior linebacker Alexander Moore set the tone on the first play from scrimmage by returning an interception 30 yards for a touchdown.

Valencia's defense, the second-stingiest in Orange County, shut down Corona del Mar and the Tigers won, 23-15, in a Southern Section Division IX first-round game Friday at Huntington Beach High. Valencia, which gave up 11.2 points a game in the regular season, kept the Sea Kings' offense at bay, holding it to 135 yards. "Our defense was on the field way too long," Corona del Mar Coach Dick Freeman said. Even though it was overworked, Corona del Mar's defense kept the game close.

Everyone knows the adage that says defense wins championships, but in the case of Corona del Mar High and the Pacific Coast League boys' basketball title, it should be amended. Defense wins at least a share of the championship. Unveiling a newly developed matchup zone defense Tuesday night at Corona del Mar, the Sea Kings stifled University's long-range attack and defeated the Trojans, 69-52.

Sometimes playing in a tournament is not about winning trophies, it's about revitalizing a struggling team. Both Corona del Mar and Estancia fit that description. Although each team was coming off a victory Monday in the Pride of the Coast baseball tournament, both have managed only sub-.500 records. But with Tuesday's 16-0 pounding of Estancia at Corona del Mar, the Sea Kings (4-6-1) are showing signs that they may yet be a factor when Sea View League play resumes next week.

One day, Corona del Mar Coach Paul Orris and his Sea Kings will be able to look back with pride on the night they slashed a 23-point second-half deficit to one and had several chances to win or tie near the end. Not now, though. Not after the sting of defeat remains fresh following No. 8 Marina's 56-53 victory over Corona del Mar in a pool-play game Wednesday at the Estancia tournament. Sea King guard Alec Hanson could only hang his head in disappointment after the game.

Last night, Corona del Mar senior Parker Collins considered letting his teammates try to win the Southern Section boys' tennis title without him. Collins' back was so sore he could barely lift his right arm over his head. But the more Collins thought about it, he knew he had to be on the Palisades Tennis Club courts Wednesday against Sea View League rival Woodbridge. "If we won, I didn't want to be sitting out and not be a part of it," he said. "If we had lost, I'd have thought it was my fault."

Senior Matt Lopes ran for 215 yards and four touchdowns Friday to carry Palos Verdes into the Northern Division final with a 50-33 win over Valencia at Valencia High. The Sea Kings, winners of 10 in a row, will meet Bay League rival West Torrance in the title game Dec. 1.

"We've been taking little steps every year," said Palos Verdes Coach Guy Gardner, who has led the school to 28 wins in the last three years.

Camille Hewko, Tamua Anae and the rest of the Corona del Mar girls' water polo team proved to be a handful as the Sea Kings won their fifth consecutive Southern Section championship with an 11-4 victory over Villa Park in the Division II final Monday night at Belmont Plaza. Hewko scored a game-high three goals to lead Corona del Mar's offense and Anae was outstanding in making nine saves in goal to head the Sea Kings' stifling defense.

It wasn't Davis Cup play; it just seemed like it. All the requisite team effort and spirit were in evidence. Even a banner commemorating the 1997 Davis Cup competition that took place at Palisades Tennis Club in Newport Beach hung across the back wall at center court. And on the court, locked in a battle of skill, wit and will, was Corona del Mar High senior Cameron Ball, the son of a former Australian Davis Cup team member.

Fourth-seeded Corona del Mar, plagued by unforced errors and a shaky passing game, fell to second-seeded Santa Ynez, 15-9, 15-5, 15-8, in the Southern Section Division IV boys' volleyball final Saturday at Cypress College. "It's a simple equation," Sea King Coach Steve Conti said. "The team that makes the most mistakes is going to be on the losing side, and that was us." The teams battled back and forth in the first game, with Brian Gallagher's kill tying the score at 7-7 for the Sea Kings.

The S&R Sport Water Polo Cup last weekend was a big test for Corona del Mar, and it passed with flying colors. When Corona del Mar coach John Vargas returned from guiding the U.S. men's water polo team in the Olympics, he found the Sea Kings adrift and looking for direction. They had only competed in five games, all in the South Coast Tournament, where they lost to Foothill and Long Beach Wilson. And while they were ranked No. 1 in the Southern Section Division II poll and No.

Corona del Mar junior Julie Allen won two events and finished second in another Saturday, helping the Sea Kings defend their Southern Section Division III team title at Cerritos College. Corona del Mar exchanged leads throughout the day with Pasadena Muir, moving ahead for good, 52-51, when Allison Brawner finished fourth in the high jump and Muir's Glenda Anderson finished fifth. Both cleared 5 feet 4, but Brawner had the advantage because Anderson needed a third attempt to clear 5-0.
