The Palo Alto girls' water polo team remained in the hunt in the SCVAL De Anza Division race with a 9-4 win over host Los Altos on Thursday night. The Vikings (4-1, 8-6) were led by senior captain Martine LeClerc, who scored five goals -- four coming in the opening quarter. Goals were added by Hannah Bundy, Tara Lawrence, Tess van Hulsen and Emma Wolfe to push the Vikings to an 8-4 lead in the fourth quarter. To cap off the night, LeClerc added her final goal with 1:50 left in the game.

The Vikings played one of their all-around best games of the season against long-time nemesis Los Altos. This was the third meeting of four this season between the two teams. Paly has won the first three. Next up for the Vikings will be a home game Tuesday against first-place Gunn at 3:30 p.m.
