The ankle injury suffered by David Harbour of Camarillo High early in last Wednesday’s 76-52 basketball playoff loss to Glendora was diagnosed as a broken bone in his right foot.
Earlier in the season, the sophomore guard tore ligaments in his left ankle and missed several games. Harbour, the Scorpions’ scoring leader, also plays baseball but will miss the first three to four weeks of the season.
The injury climaxed a rash of ankle and foot mishaps for Camarillo in the last week of the season. The Monday before the third-round playoff game against Glendora, forward Scott Foster sprained an ankle. On Tuesday, reserve Dominique Zuniga broke an ankle. Then, on Wednesday, Harbour went down.
“All stepped on someone else’s foot,” Camarillo Coach John Harbour said. “I think it was a weird, freaky thing.”
Harvard High’s water polo team, the defending Southern Section 2-A Division champion, has been invited to compete in a tournament in Bergmo, Italy, this summer.
Coincidentally, the Saracens will train in West Berlin in the same facilities where Harvard Coach Rich Corso may coach next season. Corso is considering leaving the Harvard program for a club team named Wasserfreunde Spandau 04.
The six-team tournament includes club teams from northern Italy and is tentatively scheduled to start the last week in June.
“It will be a good way to train,” Corso said. “But instead of watching it on video, we’ll experience it.”
