Getting five goals from junior Sophia Caryotakis, the Menlo-Atherton girls' water polo team jumped out to an early lead and then held on for an 8-7 victory over host Castilleja on Tuesday. The win wrapped up a sixth straight PAL Bay Division title for the Bears (5-0, 14-10), who are 39-0 in league play since losing to Menlo School on Oct. 25, 2006. Castilleja (3-2, 11-13) needed a victory to force a co-title and senior Sydney Molano nearly pulled it off with three goals in the fourth period.
