Tournament individual winner Sebastian Jacobs with Stefano Ragosa, Newport Beach’s U14 water polo coach.

Sebastian Jacobs, 13, a Thurston Middle School eighth-grader, won top honors at the Newport Beach All-Star Invitational 5-Lives competition, which was hosted by Newport Beach Water Polo for the under 14 boys age group division April 4-6.

The tournament was created to draw U14 level competitors and attracted 10 teams. Teams chose their top players to compete in a separate competition on Saturday called the 5-Lives competition. Each player had to shoot from the 5-meter line and each missed shot took a life and determined a new goalie.

Sebastian won the overall competition and took away the plaque for the 5-Lives winner.
