Orange Lutheran and Huntington Beach also are competing for the No. 2 spot behind undefeated Harvard-Westlake in Division 1. But when the CIF-SS coaches polls surfaced Monday, Division 1 featured the tag "did not report."
Here's what Harvard coach Brian Flacks said Saturday night about which team should be No. 2 in Division 1:
"I think OLu," Flacks said. "Obviously, beating Mater Dei at Mater Dei (is impressive). The tough thing with HB is that I haven't seen them and we haven't played them since the transfers have been back.
"Adding two guys (Ryan Hurst, Garrett Zaan) of that caliber, they are obviously a new team. I don't know, it's close. That will be an unbelievable game. ... Can it be tied?"
The good news for water polo fans: OLu and HB play on Oct. 29, but both squads will need to continue their winning ways to keep the showdown set. The Oilers play at Newport Harbor on Wednesday night in a key Sunset League match.
