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.

NEWPORT BEACH - Saturday afternoon marked Jon Walters' first time facing his former team in a high school game. Walters, now a junior at Mater Dei, transferred from Newport Harbor after his freshman year. He still has friends at Harbor. He and his sophomore brother, James, were on a 14-and-under club team with Sailors juniors Dan Stevens and Curtis Fink that won the Speedo Cup. In the water, it's a different matter for the Newport Beach resident.

NEWPORT BEACH — One of the first positives for the Santa Margarita High boys' water polo team Tuesday came at the start of the second half. Eagles senior Chad Naughton won the sprint to start the third quarter. Not usually a big deal, but when your team has been shut out in the first half, the fans in the blue and gold applauded the small victories. The press defense of host Newport Harbor was, well, impressive, as the Sailors breezed to a 19-4 victory in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs.
