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?

John O'Hara has encountered many things in his 34 years with Laguna Beach's Public Works department, some more grotesque than others. About 10 years ago, O'Hara found the body of a dead woman with a plastic bag tied around her neck in the bushes of Laguna Canyon. "I never had the [police] respond so quickly. They were there in three minutes," said O'Hara, who will retire as maintenance lead worker after his shift Sunday. Most days he canvasses beaches, streets and parks, emptying trash cans and collecting loose debris from the sand.

Before the start of the prep football season, Mike Churchill felt his first team at Laguna Beach could do something special. "I told everybody that we'd be good, but I don't think anybody listened to me," he said. "The guys went out and showed what they could do, and they had a real nice season. " The Breakers did. They won early and often, scoring a lot of points along the way, and played a 13th game for the first time since the program's inaugural varsity season in 1935.

The Laguna Beach girls' volleyball team played with passion Tuesday in the CIF Southern Section Division 1-A semifinals, giving rival Corona del Mar all it could handle. "I thought we played hard and with a lot of heart," Laguna Beach Coach Lance Stewart said. "We just didn't make enough good plays to finish things. They (CdM) made more big plays than we did, and that was the difference. " Second-ranked Corona del Mar had many of those big plays in the second game on its way to eliminating the Breakers, 25-20, 25-23, 17-25, 25-16 at Dugger Gym. CdM, the Pacific Coast League champion, trailed, 10-1, at one point in the second set before mounting a furious rally.

What a way to start a revival. Returning to play a full season of varsity softball for the first time in three years, Laguna Beach was hungry for action. The Breakers launched their 2011 campaign March 2 and scored a 13-7 nonleague victory over Connelly. On Tuesday, they scored an even bigger win. The Breakers went to Corona del Mar to take on their rival down the road, a game that originally was scheduled for the new playing field at Thurston Middle School but forced by remnants of recent rains to be moved to CdM. The site switch mattered little to Laguna, which came away with a 7-5 win. Laguna, a Division 5 school, knocked off the Division 2 Sea Kings.
