U.S. Olympic Water Polo Team to Play Exhibition at Harvard

The U.S. Olympic water polo team will play an intrasquad exhibition Nov. 3 at Harvard-Westlake High, Coach Rich Corso announced Wednesday.

Corso, who is coach of both the Olympic and Harvard teams, said the exhibition is the first of a planned series of training matches for the team.

The match, to be played before the Wolverines' 3:15 p.m. regular-season finale against Loyola, marks one of the biggest water polo events in area history, Corso said.

"It's gonna be huge," he said. "This will be the first time ever that these kind of players can be seen together in the Valley."


Weber State quarterback Bryan Martin, who leads the NCAA Division I-AA in total offense with a 366.7-yard average, will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn right rotator cuff in a 40-14 loss last week to Boise State.

Martin, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound senior from Granada Hills High, has completed 164 of 261 passes for 2,377 yards and 18 touchdowns. He was selected the national player of the week last month after a 614-yard performance (522 passing) against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.


The Hoover and Nordhoff high boys' teams, and the Thousand Oaks and Louisville girls' squads, are ranked first in their respective divisions in the second state poll of the season.

Hoover (Division I), Thousand Oaks (Division I) and Nordhoff (Division III) maintained their top spots from the first poll. Louisville replaced Morro Bay as the No. 1 girls' team in Division IV.

The Thousand Oaks girls have moved up from ninth to sixth in Harrier magazine's national poll. The Nordhoff boys moved up one notch to 16th.
