The old saying goes that April showers bring May flowers.
The Newport Harbor High aquatics community would love to see it play out that way.
This month the Sailors expect to name their new boys' water polo and swimming coach, following the firing of Jason Lynch on April 8. Girls' golf coach Scott Tarnow, who is on the hiring board, said no interviews have been conducted as of Thursday, but the position is expected to be filled in the next two to three weeks. That's consistent with an email Principal Michael Vossen sent out to Newport aquatics families April 21, saying the goal was to name a new coach by mid-May.
While the new coach's identity is still up in the air, the new aquatic boosters president next year is expected to be Doug Stevens, the father of sophomore center Dan Stevens.
Doug Stevens, currently the aquatics boosters parliamentarian, said he was the only one who volunteered to fill the president position. He hopes he doesn't have his work cut out for him.
