HUNTINGTON BEACH - Rhetoric was in no short supply on the night of the first presidential debate. The front runner in the Sunset League boys' water polo race? That was to be decided in the pool, where Newport Harbor High faced Los Alamitos. A day after a tough loss, the Sailors sure showed they could bounce back. Newport Harbor hung on for an 8-7 victory over Los Al in the league opener Wednesday night at Ocean View High. The Sailors (9-2) jumped ahead in their quest for their third straight league title.

NEWPORT BEACH - The south side of the Newport Harbor High pool deck - the shady side - was the place to be late on a hot Saturday afternoon. Few people tried to sit on the other side. The Newport Harbor and Coronado boys' water polo teams didn't have a choice, as that's where their benches were located. But there were even few people on that Newport Harbor bench as the game went on. Minus an absent starter and with two other players fouled out, Coach Robert Lynn was left with just one substitute in the fourth quarter of a tie game.

Corona del Mar and Newport Harbor are the top two teams in the CIF Southern Section Division I girls' water polo coaches' poll. Each has a top goalie to anchor their defense. The Sea Kings have senior Alex Musselman, a three-year starter. The Sailors have sophomore Cleo Harrington, who continues to impress more and more with each passing game. At the next level, the Back Bay is also represented extremely well. Three of the top four NCAA Division I women's water polo programs have young women from Newport Beach in the mix at goalie.

NEWPORT BEACH - Farrel South said it has been a little tough playing without Newport Harbor High's new water polo coach this summer. Robert Lynn, hired in May to the lead the Sailors, is in China as an assistant coach with the U.S. men's national team. While Lynn is helping the U.S. at the FINA World Championships, the Sailors began another tournament without Lynn on Friday. The boys did not need Lynn in the first two matches at the California State High School Championships.

NEWPORT BEACH - On one of the hottest days of the year, at least there was a nice breeze on the Newport Harbor High pool deck. The action in the Battle of the Bay boys' water polo scrimmage still sizzled early on. Seven exclusions were called in the first quarter, six of those on Corona del Mar. The physical nature helped the host Sailors, who scored three early goals on their power play. Newport Harbor never trailed and outscored the Sea Kings in the scrimmage, 11-7.

NEWPORT BEACH - The high-tech scoreboard is not currently working at the Newport Harbor High pool. The score was kept at the table during Tuesday afternoon's nonleague game against Long Beach Wilson. Each time one of the teams found the back of the net, someone at the scorer's desk flipped over a red or blue number to show the updated tally. Every so often someone would walk over from the bleachers to glance at the score. In the first half, it wasn't really necessary.

NEWPORT BEACH - Nobody said the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs were going to be easy. Even when you're the No. 2 seed. The Newport Harbor High boys' water polo team got a good game from San Clemente on Wednesday evening in the first round of the playoffs. And, though the Sailors felt like they could have played better, the goal is to move on. The Sailors did, pulling away in the second quarter to earn a 14-8 victory over the Tritons at Newport Harbor High.

IRVINE - El Toro High senior goalie Garrett Danner called it a risk. Newport Harbor Coach Robert Lynn called it a gamble. When Danner came out of the cage in the closing seconds of Wednesday night's CIF Southern Section Division I semifinal match, there were two possible outcomes. The first was that the Sailors' Dan Stevens would beat Danner in the closing seconds for the second time this year, possibly forcing overtime. The second was that Danner would steal the ball, helping ensure a Chargers victory.

NEWPORT BEACH - Newport Harbor High boys' water polo Coach Robert Lynn said he loved the back-and-forth nature of Tuesday's game against Long Beach Wilson. The teams traded goals, field blocks and big saves for the duration. "I liked that game," Lynn said. "Even if we would have lost, I'd tell you the same thing. I wish we had that game every week for 10 months in a row. It's only going to help us get better. " Of course, Lynn also liked that the Sailors were able to come out with the victory.
