Stanford WPC girls come up empty handed at JOs


The girls from the Stanford Water Polo Club came away from the 2014 National Junior Olympics with nary a medal following a final day that saw eight teams combine for a 3-6 record.

The 10U co-ed team (5-2) had the best showing, a fifth place in the upper Platinum Division, following a 4-0 victory over SoCal at Carlmont High on Sunday.

The 14A team (3-6) finished 12th in the Platinum Division following an 8-6 loss to Del Mar WP at Harker School in San Jose.

The Stanford 18A squad (5-3) was next, taking 14th in the Platinum Division despite a 12-11 loss to Huntington Beach Blue at Gunn High.

The 16A team (5-3) was 17th in the Platinum Division after edging Los Angeles WPC, 2-1, at Menlo-Atherton High.

The 18B team (3-5) was 20th in the Platinum Division following a 9-2 loss to SET Pink at Bellarmine Prep while the Stanford 12A team (3-5) was 20th in Platinum Division after dropping a 14-9 decision to Rose Bowl at De Anza College.

The Stanford 14B team (3-4) was 17th in the Gold Division after beating NIPC, 7-5, at West Valley College.

And, while the 16B team (4-3) was fourth in the Classic Division after dropping a 10-7 decision to NorCal Aquatics, that bracket is lower than the top 48 of the championship level.
