Varsity Girls Water Polo
Gunn 9, Palo Alto 6
Date of competition: Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Getting five goals from senior Elizabeth Anderson, the Gunn girls' water polo team ruined Senior Day for host Palo Alto with a 9-6 victory in SCVAL De Anza Division action on Tuesday. The Titans remained in second place at 9-1 (17-6) heading into Thursday's showdown against first-place Los Altos in the Titans' pool at 3:30 p.m. Paly fell to 5-5 in league (11-9 overall despite four goals from senior standout Skylar Dorosin.
Sophomore Caroline Anderson added two goals for Gunn, which will celebrate its Senior Day prior to the Los Altos match.
"This was a good game for our team, and a great win for our program," said Gunn coach Mark Hernandez. "Due to the vagaries of our schedule, we hadn't been challenged in a while, and Palo Alto was more than ready to challenge us. They played with a lot of energy, and were obviously inspired by their characteristically enthusiastic crowd. So, in that light, our team proved a lot. We beat an improved team on their senior night in as tough as an environment as we're likely to see."
