The South Coast boys' water polo tournament begins today at Newport Harbor, Corona del Mar, Tustin and Mission Viejo Capistrano Valley highs.

Most of the top teams in Southern Section Division I are entered, including Long Beach Wilson, Santa Ana Foothill and Lake Forest El Toro. The championship game is set for 4 p.m. Saturday at Newport Harbor. Unlike in previous years, predicting the finalists won't be easy.

"I don't think there's any super-dominant team this year," Newport Harbor Coach Jason Lynch said. Last year, Anaheim Servite upset then top-seeded Foothill, 16-9, in the title game.

Los Alamitos sophomore Tory Ishimatsu, the Southern Section Division I girls' champion, has been selected to the U.S. Junior National team that will participate in the FINA Junior World Championships on Oct. 25-31 at Belem, Brazil.

Ishimatsu was selected to the team after winning this year's Speedo Junior National Championships this summer in Moultrie, Ga. Competing in the girls' 14-15 age group, she won the three-meter springboard, was second in the one-meter springboard and third in the platform competitions.
