When the U.S. Olympic men's water polo team beat Hungary last month in an exhibition at Newport Harbor High, it was the first time the Americans had beaten the perennial power in 10 years. The American women, by contrast, are looking for their fourth victory over Hungary this week when they come to Newport Beach on Sunday. The U.S. Olympic women's water polo team plays Hungary at 3 p.m. Sunday at Corona del Mar High, the last of four exhibition games this week in the lead up to London.

Newport Beach resident Kelly Rulon helped the U.S. women's national water polo team place fifth at the FINA World Championships in Spain by producing a goal in regulation and converting a goal in a shootout against Greece. The U.S. outlasted Greece in a shootout after the match was tied, 11-11, at the end of overtime. In the shootout, Rulon was one of four Americans that converted their penalty goal shots. Greece failed on its first two attempts, ruling out the need for the U.S. to send out a fifth shooter.

LOS ANGELES - As the U.S. Olympic women's water polo team was named Thursday, Coach Adam Krikorian read off the names in alphabetical order. The first name was the former Corona del Mar High and USC standout, Tumua Anae. This led to a funny moment at the announcement at the LA84 Foundation. "It was a little awkward," Anae said. "He kind of just looked at me. I wasn't sure of the formality of it, if we were supposed to hug or shake hands. But I'm all about the hugs. " It makes sense.

CORONA DEL MAR — As the United States women's senior national water polo team took on Canada on Friday evening, it was a homecoming of sorts for two players. Corona del Mar High alumna Tumua Anae and Newport Harbor High alumna Anne Belden said it was good to be back playing water polo in Newport Beach. But on this night Anae, a goalie, and Belden, an attacker, weren't actually in the pool for Team USA. They were on the roof of the aquatics building at CdM, taping the action on a video camera.

CORONA DEL MAR — Tumua Anae (Corona del Mar High, USC) and Anne Belden (Newport Harbor, UCLA) played water polo at rival schools in high school and college. But they're on the same team now and that's a good thing for the U.S. women's national team. Anae's 12 saves as goalie and a Belden assist and goal helped spark the Americans, who rebounded from a sluggish start to overwhelm Canada, 11-5. Team USA swept the FINA World League Prelims Saturday at Corona del Mar High. "It's nice to be home," Anae said.

CORONA DEL MAR - Tumua Anae is often seen as reserved, a calming influence on the United States women's water polo Olympic team. Still, do not think for a second that she isn't extremely thrilled to be representing her country in her first Olympic Games. To some extent, she also represented her high school during Sunday afternoon's exhibition game against Hungary. She received a nice ovation from the crowd at her alma mater, Corona del Mar High, when she came into the game in goal midway through the fourth quarter.
