In the stands on the pool deck at Newport Harbor High there was a life-size poster of Kaleigh Gilchrist for the girls’ water polo home opener last week.

Gilchrist juggles her schedule with the ocean waves and the tussling in the waters of the pool. She’s about to improvise some more next month.

NEWPORT BEACH — The waves were smooth and the wind was brisk for the 43rd annual Governor’s Cup International Junior Match Racing Championship Friday, but unlike the run-of-the-mill weather conditions, it was arguably the most chaotic day of the tournament.
