The Winter CIF Playoffs are swiftly moving along for our girls qualifiers as Girls Water Polo and Girls Basketball will be competing in CIF action on Saturday.
Girls Water Polo has had a busy week with CIF victories on Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday the girls edged out Xavier Prep 8-6 and on Thursday the girls notched an 8-4 win over Arcadia. This was the third encounter between the two teams this season, with Los Altos emerging victorious in all 3 games. Saturday the girls travel to Orange County to take on the #1 seed Costa Mesa. Costa Mesa is 22-6 overall and narrowly beat Norco, 11-9, in their second round matchup. Saturday’s game will take place at Costa Mesa High School at 3pm.
The Lady Conqueror Basketball Team is moving on to the second round after a win over Foothill on Thursday night. In that game, four different Conquerors scored double digits led by Madelyn Roel’s 20 points. Vhenus Gaoa was the second leading scorer with a gritty 18-point performance followed by Emma Magana’s 15. Jenica Hernandez played a great all-around game as she notched 10 points and was a force in the paint with 3 blocks. The girls take on a very good Flintridge Prep team on Saturday evening at 7pm in the Los Altos Gym. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
