Larry Naeve wanted to spend more time with his son, Brendan, so he quit his job as La Canada High's water polo coach in 1980. Fifteen years later, he again wanted to spend more time with Brendan, so he became La Canada's water polo coach. "As a parent, you don't really get too many chances to be involved in your kid's life," Larry Naeve said. When Brendan was born, that meant giving up water polo.

Larry Naeve has been there before. His son, Brendan, has not. That's why La Canada High's 8-6 victory over Crescenta Valley in a Southern Section Division III water polo semifinal Saturday at Caltech was so special for the elder Naeve, La Canada's coach. The Spartans (25-5) advance to the championship game Tuesday night against Bell Gardens, a 13-5 winner over South Pasadena. The game is at 7 p.m. at the Belmont Plaza Pool in Long Beach.

Larry Naeve had been there before, but it didn't compare to this. The La Canada High water polo coach had just watched his team come from behind to defeat two-time defending division champion Bell Gardens, 7-6, Tuesday night in the Southern Section Division III final at the Belmont Plaza pool in Long Beach. Naeve coached La Canada's last division champion in 1979. After his son Brendan was born in 1980, Naeve resigned.

La Canada High, after playing Southern Section Division III rival Bell Gardens on Wednesday, hopped a plane for Annapolis, Md., to compete in the Annapolis High School water polo tournament. The Spartans, ranked No. 3 in Division III, arrived in Maryland this morning and open the 10-team tournament tonight against Annapolis. La Canada is the only California team in a field consisting mostly of East Coast schools. The Spartans return home Sunday night.

Amid the chaos of La Canada High's celebration sat goalie Russell Bernstein, quiet and alone. The Spartans had just won the Southern Section Division III water polo championship with a 7-6 victory over two-time defending champion Bell Gardens at the Belmont Plaza pool. The celebration, which included throwing coaches into the pool, was in full swing. But Bernstein sat with a tight grip on the game ball, staring at the patch just given to him by Southern Section assistant commissioner Bill Clark.

La Canada High water polo Coach Larry Naeve may still be standing next to the pool, shaking his head and wondering what happened in the third quarter of his team's 12-11 nonleague loss at Bell Gardens High on Tuesday. The Spartans, ranked No. 1 in Southern Section Division III, outscored No. 2 Bell Gardens in the first, second and fourth quarters. They built a 7-4 lead at halftime and seemingly had command and momentum in a game with the intensity of the playoffs.

Not exactly a happy birthday, but it could have been a lot worse for Rachelle Globig. Globig, a 5-foot-4 defensive specialist at Highland High, ran into a teammate while diving for a volleyball against Saugus last Thursday and was motionless for nearly 25 minutes. "I've been coaching volleyball now for 10 years and that's the first time we've had paramedics come," Highland Coach Mike Bird said. "It was pretty scary."

There were 33 penalties, 19 against Dorsey, in Taft's 18-6 victory last Friday night. But none was more obscure than the infraction against Dorsey at the start of the second half--when the Dons weren't even in the stadium. Dorsey was penalized 15 yards at the start of the second half because the team arrived from the locker room after the 12 minutes allotted for halftime. Maybe they were trying to figure out ways to cut down on the penalties.

Hell Week in the middle of the season? Leave it to a former Olympic coach to pull that one on his high school players. Coach Rich Corso of Harvard-Westlake High put the Wolverines through nine workouts in six days through Saturday. As if that wasn't enough, he had the players go through part of their drills dressed in T-shirts and baggy nylon basketball shorts to provide more resistance. "It's really like carrying about 20 to 25 pounds extra with you [in the water]," Corso said.

Larry Naeve doesn't own any property in Orange County, doesn't have any relatives in the area and isn't fond of the traffic. But he sure spends a lot of time there. Naeve is boys' water polo coach at La Canada High, which debuted today at No. 10 in The Times' coaches' poll. The Spartans (5-4) are a regular in the Southern Section Division III rankings but a stranger to most teams in their division, which includes primarily the San Gabriel Valley and South Bay areas.
