The Sacred Heart Prep girls ended a three-year domination of the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) soccer title by toppling defending champ Menlo School, 4-1, on Tuesday on the Gators' field. Sacred Heart Prep (9-0, 15-2-1) needed only a tie to win its first division crown since 2011, which capped a three-run title run by the Gators.

SHP appropriately celebrated Senior Day as its four seniors had never won a division title. Senior Brigid White made it a double celebration by scoring the Gators' third goal. SHP took a 1-0 lead on an own goal after freshman Mia Shenk's goal was waived off by an offsides call. Sophomore Lindsay Johnson made it 2-0 with under 11 minutes remaining before halftime when Menlo keeper Schuyler Tilney-Volk came way out of the cage, allowing Johnson to side-step her and roll a shot some 35 yards into an open net.

Menlo senior Leah Swig kept the Knights (6-2-1, 9-4-4) in the match by scoring with under eight minutes left before intermission. That goal charged up Menlo, which came out in the second half with new aggression. White ruined the Knights' hopes when she fired a shot at Tilney-Volk, who made a diving stop but wound up having the ball just inside the goal line. Holding a 3-1 lead, SHP kept up its attack, with Shenk tallying a goal with under 11 minutes to play off Davidson's second assist.
