The Corona del Mar High girls volleyball team was angry. It had reason to be. The defending CIF Southern Section Division III-A champion Sea Kings had stumbled to a 1-8 record through the early part of this season, and were in the fast lane to mediocrity. Until Thursday. "They were a little bit angry that they had lost all of these matches in the preseason," CdM Coach Bill Christiansen said. The anger fueled the fire, and the host Sea Kings responded with a 25-23, 17-25, 25-23, 25-15 Pacific Coast League victory over rival Laguna Beach, a victory that could trigger some momentum.

Newport Beach resident Kathy Fallon, a mother of three highly successful soccer athletes in the Corona del Mar system, has nothing short of a full plate. With a full-time job as a real estate agent and a full-time job as a mother, wife and soccer mom, friends and family look to her in amazement. Fallon's daughters -- Vanessa, 18, Taylor, 16, and Scarlett, 12 -- have climbed their way to the top of the soccer world at the right fullback position and they owe it in part to their mom. The woman, who was a stay-at-home mom for 15 years, was deeply involved in her children's education as a PTA Vice President at Lincoln Elementary and decided hands-on parenting was the key to overall success.

The Corona del Mar High girls cross country team was recently ranked No. 1 in the nation in the Nike/Footlocker Super 25 high school poll. The Sea Kings, ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division III, garnered much attention when they finished first at the Clovis invitational Oct. 8, setting a course record at Fresno's Woodward Park, the same site as the state championships. Senior Annie St. Geme, who finished second overall in Fresno, headlines the squad, which is also heavily benefiting from sophomore Shelby Buckley this season.

Two women wearing similar outfits locked arms near a clothing rack at the back of the American Cancer Society Discovery Shop here. Laguna Beach resident Sue Jacobs initiated the contact. She was touched by the story of her friend, Herta Fremont. "Her steadfastness and charisma is amazing," Jacobs said. "She's always been there and always does so much for people. She motivates everyone." Discovery Shops, which raise money for the American Cancer Society through retail sales, celebrated their 40th anniversary last month at 43 stores across California.

Anyone who's anyone in Newport Beach has heard of the old Rendezvous Ballroom -- the place to be in the early- and mid-20th century. Most everyone in the city over the age of 40 remembers the fire that destroyed the popular hangout in 1966. Milt Meehan had a close view of the disaster. He was born in Orange, but his heart was always in Newport Beach. Meehan and his friends made the coastal city their destination nearly every weekend. "We'd all chip in for gas, one of the seniors would drive his Ford, and we'd drive down to the beach and back," Meehan said.

Since the 2001 season, Northwood High has been the gold standard in Pacific Coast League football. Corona del Mar, which meets the Timberwolves tonight at 7 at Irvine High, may find out if its league title aspirations this season are merely fool's gold. The Sea Kings (3-2, 1-0 in league), ranked No. 5 in CIF Southern Section Division IX, have pinned their hopes on a sterling defense that last week recorded the program's first shoutout in 62 games, dating back to 1999.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Daily Pilot has agreed to republish The Verdict, the ever-popular column written for many years by retired Corona Del Mar jurist and historian Robert Gardner, in exchange for donations to the Surfrider Foundation. This column was originally published Feb. 26, 1994. As I have mentioned previously in these dispatches, one of my favorite characters in earlier Orange County times was C.C. Gavvy Cravath, city judge and justice of the peace of Laguna Beach.
