A pair of Marina water polo players born in Croatia have signed with four-year schools, Vikings boys coach Tony Karaman reports.

Utility Boris Posavec signed with St. Francis in New York while attacker Luigi Paparella inked with Wagner University, also in the Empire State.

Neither Posavec or Paparella were eligible at Marina this past season, leaving O.C. water polo fans to wonder what might have been had they played with Karaman's son, Luka Karaman, who committed to USC, and high-scoring junior Leo Yuno.

Posavec will join Mater Dei attacker Will Lapkin at St. Francis.
