The Gunn girls finished off their first-ever 12-0 water polo season in the SCVAL De Anza Division with a 7-2 victory over host Palo Alto on Thursday. Seniors Bianca Batista and Nia Gardner led the Titans (17-3 overall) with three goals each.

"This was a historic game for us," said Gunn coach Mark Hernandez. "We had clinched the regular- season title on Tuesday but, especially with the NorCal tournament coming up (Friday and Saturday), we wanted to play well; and we wanted to win.

"It was especially rewarding to go 12-0 with this group, one which features five new starters this year. We've been through a lot together, and had to overcome a lot of obstacles. Nothing's been given to this group, and nothing's been easy. But, at every juncture they've risen to every the challenge. We know we still have work to do, but we're proud of the work we've done."
