Navy Open Kicks Of 2012 Men's Water Polo Season

A long time tradition in men's water polo gets underway on Saturday as many college teams from the East Coast and many from the West Coast converge to Annapolis, Md. to take part in the Navy Open. All of the teams come from the CWPA and the teams from the West Coast are all junior college schools.

There are not as many great teams in this years version, but there will be some good games, and what is new this time around is that there are high school teams coming to the tournament from Illinois, Michigan and the Navy AC teams. So that wrinkle makes things interesting.

The tournament begins early on Saturday at 7:30 a.m. ET when Notre Dame College take on Cerritos College.

Full schedule is after the jump:
