Menlo School boys' water polo coach Jack Bowen will win his 300th game next season after improving his 12-year record with the Knights to 297-76. Menlo could have added as many as two more victories to Bowen's total this season, but those hopes ended in an 11-8 loss to No. 3 seed Los Altos in the Central Coast Section Division II loss on Tuesday night at Serra High.

The defending champion Knights, who beat Los Altos in last season's semifinals (18-6), couldn't do it again as Menlo gave up more than 10 goals for only the third time this season. Despite holding a 7-4 halftime lead, the Knights' inexperience -- Menlo lost five of seven starters off its 2010 championship team -- showed in the second half as the Eagles outscored the Knights in the final period, 4-0.

Los Altos grabbed the lead at 9-8 with barely three minutes to play before extending its lead. Menlo seniors Nick Hale and Jack Lucas each tallied three goals and senior goalie Connor Dillon came up with nine saves.
