Edison High senior attackers Cameron Davidson and Marko Ilincic earned first-team All-Wave League status in boys’ water polo.

Marina junior John Tanner Powell and Fountain Valley senior Kai Fujita also made the first team.

Davidson scored an Edison single-season record 122 goals this season, and he also led the Chargers (17-14, 4-2 in league) with 58 assists. His 35 steals were third on the team.

Ilincic was third on the team with 33 goals, and second in assists (45) and steals (42).


The duo helped Edison finish second behind Los Alamitos in the league and advance to the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 playoffs, before losing 15-4 to top-seeded eventual finalist Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos. It is believed to be the first time Edison has reached the quarterfinals in boys’ water polo.

Powell and Fujita both stood out at goalkeeper for third-place Marina (6-21, 2-4) and fourth-place Fountain Valley (5-22, 0-6), respectively.

Second-team selections included Edison juniors Ethan Galaz and Dane Howell, Marina sophomore Kolby Burke and freshman Vincent Labonte, as well as Fountain Valley senior Drew Nordfett.

Senior Jackson Lawrence of Los Alamitos earned league MVP honors.
