CIF D1 Regional and National Championship
It was the hottest ticket in town on Saturday night when CdM swept No. 2 Newport Harbor in the CIF Southern California Regional D1 final 25-16, 25-21, 25-19 in Corona del Mar’s home gym. A senior-heavy starting line-up made good on its last ride together. Brandon Browning had 13 kills. Kevin Kobrine added 12 kills, and Patrick Paragas handed out 45 assists with two solo blocks and four block assists. Brandon Hicks had seven kills and 3 blocks. Tyler Flood had six kills on .600 hitting, and Diego Perez had 17 digs. There was no doubt after this dominant performance over Newport Harbor that CdM volleyball was to be named National High School D1 Champions a week later.
