Mike Sciacca The first home game of the 2003-04 season couldn't have been any bigger for the Laguna Beach High boys' basketball team. It came against rival Corona del Mar, and it marked the opening night of play in the Pacific Coast League. The Breakers didn't disappoint the fans who came out to see them play in newly renovated Duggers Gymnasium. "I think this is the first time this group of seniors has beaten Corona del Mar," Laguna Coach Mark Hill said after Laguna defeated the visiting Sea Kings, 50-49.

Mike Sciacca Things looked promising Tuesday for the Laguna Beach High baseball team after its first at-bat against Pacific Coast League rival Corona del Mar. Taking a 2-0 lead on the road in a key league clash was a big boost to the Breakers but not quite big enough as the Sea Kings came storming back and went on to record a 9-3 home field victory. Laguna, now 3-5 in league and 5-10 overall, got its two, first-inning runs on Conley Sampson's two-run home run. Corona del Mar scored once in the first inning on Nick Karpe's home run, then took the lead for good in the second by scoring twice more, one run coming on a Wes Presson homer.

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.

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.

LAGUNA BEACH - If Corona del Mar High girls' volleyball coach Marissa Booker needed any reminder of her team's character, she needn't look anywhere but the second set of Tuesday's CIF Southern Section Division I-A semifinal match against rival Laguna Beach. "To come back like that, in that second set, really showed me the heart of this team," said the first-year coach whose squad rallied to win Game 2 and used it as a springboard to an eventual, 25-20, 25-23, 17-25, 25-16 road victory that sends the second-seeded Sea Kings on to Saturday's divisional championship game.

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.

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.
