Brenda Villa helped the U.S. women's Olympic team win a gold medal at the 2012 Summer Games in London. This Saturday, Villa hopes to guide her Castilleja water polo team to a championship in the Central Coast Section Division II playoffs. The No. 3-seeded Gators (14-7) reached the section finals for only the third time in program history with a 6-5 win over No. 7 Presentation on Tuesday night at Menlo-Atherton. SHP will face top-seeded and six-time defending champion Sacred Heart Prep (21-7), a 13-3 winner over Soquel, in the title match at the George F. Haines International Swim Center in Santa Clara. SHP and Castilleja have met in the finals twice before, with Sacred Heart winning in 2008 and 2010. SHP also won an early season match against Castilleja, 10-4.
