The two goalies who led their teams to Central Coast Section water polo championships this season headline the 2010 All-CCS teams, as selected by a panel of coaches.
Senior Emily Dorst, who anchored Menlo-Atherton's defense in the Bears' 6-5 victory over St. Francis in the Division I finale, was named the Most Valuable Player in that division. She helped the top-seeded Bears finish the year 18-9 and with the second section title in school history.
Senior Catherine Donahoe played a similar role for Sacred Heart Prep as she anchored a stingy Gators' defense during a 12-4 triumph over Castilleja in the CCS Division II championship match. Not too surprising, Donahoe was named the MVP in her division.
