Anteater takes first and third

The Newport Beach-based Anteater Water Polo Club's 10-and-under boys' group jumped up a division to 12U silver and grabbed the first-place blue-ribbon medals in the Turbo Orange County Cup. The Anteater 8- and 9-year-olds took third place in the 10U coed gold division.

The trip to winning the U12 silver boys' division included a 22-3 victory over tournament host Kahuna Blue of Irvine, a 20-2 win against Newport White, a 17-4 win over South Bay and a 9-5 championship victory over Laguna in the final.

What was initially planned as a tune-up training run for the upcoming Junior Olympics this summer, turned into a pleasant drive to the gold medals for this group playing up an age-group division.

Coached by Jesse Briggs and Marc Hunt, the roster included Triton Scott, Shane Papa, Warren Loth, Connor McManigal, Cole Fisher, Brannon Syler, Kaveh Moadelli, Michael Paduano, Makana Sanita, Wyatt Genc, Spencer Wardwell and Caden Strauss.
