Rich Corso, who coached the Harvard High water polo team to its first Southern Section 2-A Division championship last season, has rejected an offer to coach a club team in West Germany and will remain at Harvard, he said Wednesday. "We came to the decision that it's best for the Corso family and American water polo if I stay. And for Harvard water polo," he said. "Everything I do now with my high school and my club team is going to put myself into a position to develop players for the international level."

It's not unusual for a high school team to be honored by the local city council or school board for winning a championship, and that's what happened last week for the Santa Ana Valley girls' water polo team. They showed up at the board of education meeting to be recognized for winning a second consecutive Southern Section Division 7 championship last month. What surprised many in the audience was the revelation they heard after a question was asked by a board member: "What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome?"

Rich Corso used to work 18-hour days toward his goal of someday becoming head coach of the U.S. men's water polo team. Then, in 1993, he got the job and started working 18-hour days, again at the expense of his personal and family life, toward his goal of guiding that team to a gold medal in the Olympics. Friday, perhaps, was Corso's last 18-hour day. The United States lost, 5-4, to Spain in the quarterfinal round of Olympic competition at the Georgia Tech Aquatics Center. The U.S.

Rich Corso, goalkeeper coach for the 1984 Olympic water polo team, took over the Harvard High program last spring after 10 years as an assistant coach at UCLA. His first task: Get Harvard, and Valley water polo in general, up from the bottom of the tank. This week's Southern Section water polo poll is filled with Orange County schools; not one Valley team is ranked in the top 10. "I'm going to Orange County to play because that's where the better talent is," Corso said.

Rich Corso swings open the bottom drawer of his desk and tosses the live phone receiver in among notebooks and old newspaper clippings.
