No. 1 vs. No. 1. On the final day of the regular season today, two longtime rivals who head the top two divisions in CIF girls? water polo go head-to-head when Laguna Beach (24-3) takes on Corona del Mar (24-1). Opening sprint is 3:15 p.m. at the CdM pool. ?We schedule this game every year to keep the rivalry going,? Laguna Coach Ethan Damato said. ?Our group of girls has been playing their senior group of girls for several years now, so they know one another and are good friends.

LAGUNA BEACH — Where was No. 1 in the maroon jersey Friday night at Laguna Beach High? For much of the third quarter, Laguna Beach junior receiver Chris Paul was on the sidelines with what appeared to be leg cramps. For most of the rest of the game, Paul was in the end zone, perhaps serving notice to Corona del Mar that this game wouldn’t be a blowout like past years. But in the end the Sea Kings were too deep and too balanced as they took control in the second half for a 65-34 nonleague victory.

CORONA DEL MAR — Beating a senior-laden team like Laguna Beach High twice in a five-day span is tough. Corona del Mar senior girls' water polo player Lauren Marks just wants to make her shot tough to ignore. Marks did so in the fourth quarter Wednesday, scoring the game-winning goal crosscage with just over five minutes left as CdM took the nonleague game over the Breakers, 5-4, at CdM. "I knew I had to step it up," said Marks, who scored twice after netting just one goal in CdM's first eight games.

CORONA DEL MAR ? The Laguna Beach High boys? volleyball team could have all the talent in the world. But for interim coach Steve Astor, it?s all about showing the fight. The Breakers didn?t show it a lot Tuesday in a nonleague match at Corona del Mar as the host Sea Kings swept, 25-22, 25-16, 25-16. ?We just didn?t execute the easy plays,? Astor said. ?That was the difference in the first game and part of the second game. It was a lack of executing and a lack of fight.

LAGUNA BEACH — Jason Hitchens is not a football coach who overlooks an opponent, especially when he has starters out with injuries. Two days prior to Corona del Mar High’s latest challenge in the playoffs at Laguna Beach, Hitchens hinted at the future. “It looks like the matchup,” said Hitchens, cracking a smile when asked of the likelihood of CdM facing Mayfair of Lakewood after Laguna Beach. “We’ll see.” Hitchens was correct, but he also lost another starter.

LAGUNA BEACH - Corona del Mar High football coach Scott Meyer said the Sea Kings' 41-14 victory over host Laguna Beach that ended a four-game losing streak in CIF semifinals dating back to 1992, meant they finally got over the hump. But it's certainly easier to surmount any bump in the postseason landscape when your primary offensive strategy involves running downhill. That's just the way it appeared for CdM (11-2) in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division semifinal, the Sea Kings' third semifinal appearance in four years.

CYPRESS — Out of all nine CIF Southern Section boys' volleyball title appearances with Corona del Mar High, the latest one stressed out Coach Steve Conti. At first, he did not know why. When a reporter joked if he felt stressed Saturday because it was supposed to be the end of the world, Conti just grinned. No, it had nothing to with such shenanigans. All of Conti's stress was because the Sea Kings were supposed to win Division II. Not just win, but sweep Laguna Beach. Who cared if the Breakers were the defending champions?

LAGUNA BEACH ? Lance Stewart paced the sideline Tuesday night, like a basketball coach. He could have been another linesman, but thankfully that wasn?t needed in the nonleague girls? volleyball match between his Laguna Beach High squad and his former team, Corona del Mar. ?It?s a new rule this year,? Stewart said. ?Like just about every other sport in the world, the coaches are finally allowed to stand up. For me, who tends to get excited sometimes, it actually helps calm me.?

This one was sweet for the Laguna Beach High boys' volleyball team. In a week that had them going up against top-notch competition, which included playing six matches in eight days, the Breakers took on longtime rival Corona del Mar in nonleague play Wednesday at Dugger Gym. In what Coach Scott Panaro said was a inspired team effort, the Breakers took a sweep from the Sea Kings. Laguna's 25-20, 25-15, 25-19 victory gave the Breakers their first win against Corona del Mar since 2008.

An early-season showdown Tuesday against rival Corona del Mar marked the start of the 2011 campaign for Laguna Beach. In a close match between two highly-regarded teams, it was the visiting Sea Kings who emerged with a 25-20, 22-25, 25-21, 25-14 victory. Corona del Mar entered the contest ranked second and Laguna was third in CIF Division 1-A. "We watched game film and I thought we played pretty good," Laguna Coach Lance Stewart said. "For our first home game, and first time some of the girls were playing in certain spots, I thought we did well against a very good CdM team.

For the second time in a six-day period, the Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar girls' water polo teams met, and in each instance played exciting, tough matches that went to the wire. The second of the two games was played Wednesday at the CdM pool, and despite holding a two-goal lead in the second quarter, Laguna eventually fell, 5-4, to the Sea Kings. Last Friday, in the semifinals of the Holiday Cup hosted by Newport Harbor and CdM, the Breakers lost in overtime to the Sea Kings.

CORONA DEL MAR — The referee on the floor said he knew who was going to win the Corona del Mar-Laguna Beach high school rivalry match. Before the girls' volleyball match went to a decisive fifth set, the referee said the side that received at the start went on to win the first four sets. He did not understand why CdM chose to serve in the final set. He forgot about the Sea Kings' home-court edge Tuesday night. After losing the previous set pretty badly, the Sea Kings forgot all about it and regrouped.
