EDISON, NEWPORT ROLL TO SSL VICTORIES

After an off week to start the Sunset Surfing League, Edison High School opened its league schedule Tuesday with a 93-54 win over a shorthanded Fountain Valley squad.


The Chargers (1-0) had the winner in all seven heats en route to the win. Fountain Valley fell to 0-2 with the setback.


"We did pretty good, said Edison coach Zoran Forgiarini. "We have some new kids, we have some girls that we are breaking in that are new to us and the boys gave a great effort today, it was fun."


Micah Baltzer, Esai Gonzales, Mahteo Gonzales, Saxon Baltzer and Reese Powers all took heat wins for the Charger boys and Mara Morales took down two heats for the girls.

For Fountain Valley, the top boy surfer was Eddie Watkins who placed 2nd and 3rd in his heats. For the girls, Megan Mastin led the way with 2nd place in both long and short board and Meleana Walker, 3rd in the longboard heat.


"We just take it one comp at a time and see how it goes," said Forgiarini. "We have a goal at every comp to do the best you can and get it going. The girls are going to be key. We are lucky to have the ones we do."



Newport Harbor 101.5, Marina 45.5


Newport Harbor improved to 2-0 with the home water victory over the Vikings (0-2).


The Sailors got off to a quick start taking the top 3 spots in each of the first three heats.

Josh Kierstead, Ashley Hunt and Jonah Haack took the high heat scores.


Hunt came back to take heat 4 for the girls and Ronan Collins, Maverick Manne and national champion David O'Keefe rounded out the winners for Newport.

The highlight of the match went to Chad Wadsworth as he barreled his way to a perfect 10 score in heat 6. The wave earned him the "best wave of the day" and a pair of Futures Fins that goes to the highest wave score of every match of the SSL.


Highlights for Marina were 3rd place heat finishes for Lexi Shapard, (girls shortboard) and Keanu McGuire (boys shortboard.).


Next week Huntington Beach (1-0) travels to Fountain Valley on Tuesday and Marina will host Edison on Thursday,
