Social media can be a funny thing.
The players on the Newport Harbor High girls' water polo team definitely get a kick out of it.
Some of the Sailors are on Twitter. This year, they have created a funny account, "Things Schil Says" (@thingsschilsays).
The tweets sent out are quotes from Newport Harbor junior center Elissia Schilling. A warning: many of them are, shall we say, of the "colorful" variety, though certain words are creatively spelled.
I won't repeat any of the tweets here, but it's clear the Sailors get a kick out of it. It's a sort of spinoff of the account "[Stuff] My Dad Says," which has nearly three million followers.
"Things Schil Says" currently has just 22 followers, many of them members of the team.
"Maddy [McLaren] has it on her phone, but it's a team effort," junior Avery Peterson said, laughing, regarding who runs the account. "[Schilling] is very quotable."
