Multiple Teams · Girls Water Polo Scores Late Goal to Win Hacienda League Title


The Lady Conqueror Water Polo team had an amazing start to the season, winning 11 of its first 12 matches.  The season hit a bit of a rough patch as the team lost 4 in a row starting with a league loss to Webb.  The girls tried to right the ship in the Conqueror Classic Tournament before taking part in the Hacienda League Tournament.  The squad had a couple tough losses in the Conqueror Classic but felt tested and ready to compete for a league title.

After 1 round of league play the Lady Conquerors were in second place behind Webb.  This set up a matchup with Walnut in the first game of the Hacienda League Tournament.  The team battled a pesky Walnut squad and hung on for an 5-3 victory.  The win set up a showdown with Webb for the league title.  Winner would win league outright.  The Conquerors took a 3-1 lead into the 4th quarter but found themselves tied at 3 with 40 seconds left.  After a timeout, the Conquerors ran a play that got a Webb defender ejected after which Coach Coleman called another timeout.  With 20 seconds left, Genovieve Castillo scored what would be the game winning goal giving Los Altos the 4-3 victory and the league championship.

The JV Girls Water Polo Team had a strong season which was capped off with a league championship. Congrats Ladies!
