The Battle of the Bay is pretty intense, even when nothing is at stake. And Saturday’s match between Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar is for the Southern Section Division 1 volleyball championship, so fans and players should have plenty of excitement.
The contest takes place at 6:30 p.m. at Cerritos College, and UCLA fans will be watching closely because both teams have future Bruins on their rosters.
Newport Harbor is led by UCLA-bound senior Cole Pender, while Corona del Mar is led by future Bruin Kevin Kobrine. Newport Harbor also has Ohio State signee Ethan Talley. Corona del Mar has USC-bound Brandon Browning and Brandon Hicks, who has committed to UC Santa Barbara.
