LOCAL SCENE . . . Sophomore Danielle McCarthy scored a goal and recorded a pair of assists as the Menlo College women's soccer team kicked off the season with a 3-1 victory over visiting Warner Pacific on Wednesday. Junior Jocelyn Aguilar and freshman Maddie Napier also scored for the Lady Oaks, who look to build on last year's 11-5-1 record. McCarthy, who led the team with eight goals last year, has already matched her assist total from last year . . . Stanford grad Christen Press scored in the 77th minute to help the United States women's senior national soccer team wallop visiting Switzerland, 4-1, on Wednesday in Cary, North Carolina. Press scored her fifth goal of the season and the 13th of her 25-game national team career. She controlled a ball just outside the penalty box and lofted a shot over the Swiss goalkeeper's head. The ball glanced off the bottom of the crossbar and deflected into the net . . . Stanford junior Bret Bonanni scored five times and the United States men's senior national water polo team were within striking distance of 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Serbia in the fourth quarter before falling to the Serbians, 11-9, Thursday on the final day of pool play at the FINA World Cup in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The United States will meet Australia in Friday's quarterfinals . . . Recent Gunn grads Jack Jaffe and Anna Zhou, both of whom represent The First Tee of Silicon Valley, were invited to play in the 2014 Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach in September.
