Bill Barnett will return to Newport Harbor High and lead the girls water polo team next season after USA Water Polo withdrew its contract offer for the national women's team head coaching job. The Women's International Olympic Committee approved Barnett to guide the U.S. women's team in March, though a contract was never signed. Rich Foster, president of USA Water Polo, said the organization pulled the contract Monday because it couldn't come to terms with Barnett, 62, a two-time Olympic men's coach.

IRVINE - The Newport Harbor High girls' water polo team played Laguna Beach four times this season, saving the best for last. The Sailors did not roll over in Saturday afternoon's CIF Southern Section Division 1 title match. They came out aggressive and pushed the Breakers like few teams have this season. Newport Harbor badly wanted its sixth Division 1 title. But Makenzie Fischer helped deliver Laguna Beach its first. The junior had five goals and five steals as the top-seeded Breakers won, 10-7, at Woollett Aquatics Center.

Newport Beach isn't exactly Graceland, but leave it to Newport Harbor High junior Kate Pipkin to find special meaning in each location. She can tell you how special it is to play for one of the top high school water polo programs in the country, but Pipkin would almost rather wax poetic on Elvis Presley. Pipkin said that she has a passion for music, which seems like an understatement when she almost casually adds that she can play six instruments. There's the bass, the ukulele, the mandolin, the drums and the piano.

There always seems to be a strange story, or stereotype as to why a player is stuck at goalie. The reasons appear to be the same whether it’s in soccer, hockey, or water polo. Too slow, too big, no scoring ability. In Morgan Vickers’ case, she chose the position at Newport Harbor High because of the size of the net behind her in water polo. “I played [goalie] in soccer, so I thought it would probably be a little bit easier coming from a huge net to a smaller net,” she said.
