It’s not surprising that two of the schools competing for CIF-SS Division water polo titles on Saturday are from Huntington Beach, considering their proximity to the Pacific Ocean.
Ocean View (10-13) will play Crean Lutheran (21-6) in the D-6 game at 9:30 a.m. Huntington Beach (24-2) will meet Newport Harbor (25-5) in the Open Division final at 1:30 p.m.
The championships are held at William Woolett Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine.
Ticket prices are $12 general admission and $5 for high school students (with ID) and children 13 and under.
