SANTA BARBARA - It is really an unexplainable statistic. The Newport Harbor High girls' water polo team has never won the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions title. Newport assistant coach Brian Melstrom questioned Santa Barbara Coach Mark Walsh about it, so the two men looked at the tournament program. And indeed, they discovered that the Sailors had finished in second place seven times since 2003. "I said, 'I think [Coach Bill] Barnett likes to lose the last game and maybe make the girls hungry for the rest of the way,' " Walsh said.

SANTA BARBARA - Want a sure-fire way to boost the confidence of a high school girls' water polo team? Send them on the road, way north on Highway 101, to begin the season. Take away three of their starters for the weekend, girls regarded as some of the best prep players in the nation. Oh, subtract another starter for a game, too. Then have that team beat one of the top teams in CIF Southern Section Division 1. It happened Saturday, and Corona del Mar was that team coming back down Highway 101 with so much confidence.

After a hot shooting start, Newport Harbor High junior Ellie Reid hit the wall about halfway through the girls' water polo season. The left-hander was battling fatigue, sickness and a nagging shoulder injury. She stopped scoring as many goals, not looking as confident with her shot. "I kind of lost my groove a little bit," Reid said. "I kind of cracked a little bit in midseason. " How did Ellie get her groove back? It took just one shot on Saturday. She scored the winning six-on-five goal with 2:24 left off a pass from Kate Pipkin, helping Newport Harbor upset Foothill, 5-4, in a CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal match Saturday at Newport Harbor High.

She scored five goals in the Irvine Southern California Championships quarterfinal game Feb. 7, matching Santa Barbara's total by herself. Santa Barbara Coach Mark Walsh dedicated more defensive attention to Musselman in the second meeting Saturday, in a CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal game at CdM.

CORONA DEL MAR - Two of Corona del Mar High's talented players showed up to campus to play more tennis on Saturday. Alec Adamson and Pedro Fernandez spent the morning in San Diego and Santa Monica competing in different United States Tennis Assn. junior tournaments. They made it back into town in time for an afternoon high school match between the Sea Kings, ranked No. 2 in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 poll, and No. 6 Santa Barbara. The Dons also had two standouts at separate tennis events, but they didn't expect them back.

Ally McCormick's status seemed in doubt prior to her senior year with the Corona del Mar High girls' water polo team. Consider that water polo is really a year-long sport at CdM, with night leagues in the spring and fall and various tournaments in the summer. Then consider that McCormick did not touch a water polo ball from late February until September. "I think there was some question among some of her teammates," CdM Coach Sam Bailey said. "They didn't really know where she stood with things, but I didn't really question it. She's a competitor.
