Newport Harbor frosh/soph win El Toro Tournament

The foundation for Newport Harbor High's success in girls water

polo continues to grow deeper following the Sailors' conquest of the Lady

Chargers Cup at El Toro, a 16-team invitational on the frosh/soph level.

Coach Les Cutler's Sailors won it for the third time in four years

with a flourish, besting Long Beach Wilson in the final, 8-4, after

shelling El Toro in the semifinal, 9-2, on Saturday.

Friday the Sailors punished Villa Park, 19-1, after a forfeit victory

over no-show Long Beach Poly.

The 12-0 Sailors' lineup in this tournament consisted of goalie Tarrin

Cottam, Carolyn Conway, Sarah Mutt, Kaycie Craib, Anne Belden, Sabrina

Cook and Ashling Taylor. Two freshmen caught Cutler's attention, Amanda

Barto and Jesse Womble.
