Twice in two years, the Corona del Mar High girls’ water polo team played again, less than a week after losing the big game. A reporter in February asked Coach Aaron Chaney for his thoughts on the next event. Chaney stayed in the moment, his Sea Kings having just finished runner-up in the CIF Southern Section Division I championship. The upcoming event, the Masters tournament, didn’t really matter to him. Chaney won’t have to deal with such a silly question any time soon.

Newport Harbor High girls’ water polo coach Bill Barnett called the annual Holiday Cup “a testing ground to see where we’re at.” Corona del Mar Coach Aaron Chaney, with his young team this season, wouldn’t argue that. “I guess you could say these girls haven’t been battle-tested,” Chaney said. “They’re getting it right now.” Both teams definitely hope to be ready to go when the 16-team tournament, split into two groups of eight, begins today at Newport Harbor and CdM. The Sailors (5-0)

Newport Harbor High boys’ water polo coach Jason Lynch said Thursday that he will be talking about smoke inhalation issues today in his health class at Newport Harbor. A timely topic, to be sure, in the midst of the Southern California fires. One thing Lynch won’t be doing, though, is coaching the Sailors. Neither Newport Harbor nor Corona del Mar will be playing in the TruWest Memorial Cup Invitational tournament which begins today in San Jose. Both of the Back Bay teams were scheduled to play in the tournament, and flew up to Northern California on Thursday in preparation.

Robert Lynn went by two titles when he was introduced Sunday at Newport Harbor High. The announcer, Matt McLaren, referred to Lynn as U.S. men's water polo assistant coach and mastermind of the three-day pre-Olympic water polo showcase that ends Monday. The Americans' 12-9 win over Hungary featured just about everything Lynn had envisioned. The pool deck was rocking with chants of U-S-A, fans waved white towels for Team USA and the place sold out. An estimated 1,700 fans watched the game at Newport Harbor.

All she does is win, win, win, no matter what. Newport Harbor High senior Marissa Robertson can relate to that DJ Khaled song. This year in the pool, she has been unbeatable for the Sailors girls' swim team. Robertson has won all of her individual races all year long. The 50-yard freestyle, 100 free, 100 breaststroke, 100 butterfly? No problem. On Tuesday in a Sunset League meet against Marina, Robertson even threw in the 200-yard individual medley for good measure. "I don't usually swim 200s," Robertson said the next day, able to laugh because she again touched first, before any of her competition.

Corona del Mar High sophomore Maddie Musselman can't help but notice all of the Olympians helping out with the CdM water polo program. Olympians Kelly Rulon and CdM alumna Tumua Anae are coaching on the CdM Grey girls' club team for CdM Aquatics. Four-time Olympian Ryan Bailey has been helping out with the CdM boys' program for the last several years. "I just think that's so cool," Musselman said. Some people say that Musselman is a future Olympian too. It's not a stretch at all, considering that she made her debut with the U.S. senior national team last December at the Canada Cup and has been participating in national team scrimmages with Coach Adam Krikorian since the high school water polo season ended.
