His nickname could be "Aqua Lung." His slogan could be: Banker by day, world-class swimmer by night. He is Richard Saeger, a 1984 Olympic gold medalist who has recently delved, or dived, back into the pool, breaking records all over again. Saeger, 41, who regularly trains at Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar High school pools, is fresh off a world-record performance in the 100-meter freestyle in the 40-44 age division at the Mission Viejo Masters Meet July 3. An Irvine resident since 1999, Saeger got back into competitive swimming in 2000 after taking a 14-year hiatus to focus on his career -- banking, basically.

All 6,000 pounds of the green and bronze Centennial Time Clock hovered over the asphalt as workers readied the 24-foot clock tower to be lowered into its home at the future site of Centennial Plaza. A small audience drawn largely from the Corona del Mar Centennial Foundation's ranks looked on from a parking lot near the corner of East Coast Highway and Marguerite Avenue as a work crew under the supervision of contractor Paul Keohane strapped the clock tower to a crane, lifted it from a flatbed truck and turned the tower upright.

The Corona del Mar High girls tennis team looked dominant coming into the season, and it still could be. But the Sea Kings, who captured their eighth consecutive Pacific Coast League title and reached the CIF Southern Section Division I semifinals last year, will try to win without No. 1 singles player Jill Damion -- at least for a while. The junior phenom tried to play through a sore shoulder this summer, but an MRI about a month ago detected a slight tear in the rotator cuff of her right shoulder.

The Corona del Mar High girls cross country team, with all five runners finishing in the top 20, took first place at the Clovis invitational at Woodward Park in Fresno Saturday. In the process, the Sea Kings set a course record, clocking in with a time of 91 minutes, 21 seconds, smashing Sultana's 2002 mark of 91:53. "I was shocked when I found out we broke the course record, because I know the history of this course -- we've been here for the state championships 18 years in a row," Corona del Mar Coach Bill Sumner said.

Before his team's game against Long Beach Wilson High Tuesday night, Corona del Mar Coach Barry O'Dea joked about how Wilson was probably mad after losing to Newport Harbor. Indeed, the surprise trouncing the Newport Harbor boys water polo team administered last week got Long Beach Wilson attention. It's no wonder the defending CIF champion Bruins turned things up a notch in ensuing practices and came out Tuesday night on fire. Wilson took out its frustrations on Corona del Mar High, swimming to a 16-9 nonleague victory at the Belmont Plaza Pool in Long Beach.

Huntington Beach Coach Eric Lo said during the preseason that the first three games of the season would tell him a lot about his 2011 football team. Games against El Toro, Corona del Mar and Foothill, two of whom were rivals when the Oilers belonged to the Sea View League, figured to test Huntington right out of the gate. Lo did learn something last Friday at Cap Sheue Field: his team can win the close one. Huntington never trailed against El Toro, but the Oilers had to withstand a barrage of passes - 55 of them from Chargers quarterback Conner Manning - and a late comeback attempt to post a 23-21 season-opening victory.

CORONA DEL MAR — It's hard out here for a pelican. After a June 22 collision with a car windshield in Laguna Beach, a now-recovered California brown pelican nicknamed "Crash" recently was released at the water's edge in Corona del Mar State Beach. Workers from Huntington Beach's Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center, which nursed the young female bird back to health, also released 10 other pelicans that had been victims of fishing lines and hooks or starvation. Crash may have hit the car because she'd been poisoned by domoic acid, a substance produced by red tide algae that is eaten by fish, which are then eaten by birds.
