Varsity Boys Water Polo
Menlo School 20, Sequoia 6
Date of competition: Wednesday, September 17, 2014
The Menlo School boys opened defense of their PAL Bay Division water polo title with a 20-6 victory over visiting Sequoia on Wednesday. The Knights (1-0, 2-0), who have won 20 of the past 21 titles dating to 1993 -- the only non-title came in 2012 -- rolled to a 12-2 halftime lead and cruised from there as 11 different players scored and 10 had assists. Andreas Katsis had five assists to go with two goals while Nikhil Bhatia led the offense with three goals. Spencer Witte and Will Crouch split time in the cage with Crouch getting seven of the combined 12 saves.
Menlo next will host the 16th annual Scott Roche Invitational, which runs Friday and Saturday, and looks to improve upon last year's loss in the championship game to San Ramon Valley.
