Enright named first team All-American in water polo

 

Sacred Heart Prep grad Harrison Enright, an incoming freshman at Stanford, leads the list of local athletes named to the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association All-American high school water polo team.

Enright, along with fellow Cardinal freshman Grant Sivesind of Campolindo High, was named to the first team.

Senior Nelson Perla-Ward, who earned honorable mention, also represented Sacred Heart Prep.

Menlo School senior Nick Bisconti, who spent his summer with the USA Youth National Team, was named to the third team.

Menlo School grad John Wilson, who will be a freshman at Johns Hopkins University, was chosen to the sixth team and Knights' junior Chris Xi earned honorable mention.

Three other incoming Stanford freshmen were picked for second- team honors: Oliver (Geoffrey) Lewis of Punahou High, Cody Smith of Cathedral Catholic and Grady Williams of Dana Hills.

Cross country

Stanford grad Shaluinn Fullove, a member of the Cardinal's 1996 NCAA championship team, will coach the cross country team at Castelleja it was announced Friday.

Fullove, who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2005, which she revealed to Stanford grad and former cross country coach Dena Evans in a 2010 interview, competes professionally for Oiselle.

She was a 2008 Marathon U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier, and is currently training to qualify for the 2016 Marathon U.S. Olympic Trials.

Fullove is one of a handful of runners who are a two-time winner of the challenging Los Gatos Dammit Race.

She helped Louisville High win the California Division IV state championship in 1995 and was the individual champion as well. She later finished third in the 1,600 meters at the state track meet.
