Sacred Heart Prep 11, St. Ignatius 5
Date of competition: Wednesday, October 29, 2008
The Sacred Heart Prep girls' water polo team successfully defended its West Catholic Athletic League regular-season title with an 11-5 swamping of host St. Ignatius on Wednesday in a match rescheduled from earlier in the season. SHP senior Yvonne Dunlevie poured in five goals and junior Heather Smith added four while senior goalie Stephanie Clements came up with 14 saves for the Gators (6-0, 18-5).
As the league champ, Sacred Heart Prep should advance directly to the WCAL playoff semifinals on Nov. 7 at Valley Christian. The league finales will be held at Bellarmine on Nov. 8, with the girls' final starting at 5 p.m.
Before that, SHP will make a final tuneup on Saturday, facing host Menlo-Atherton (7 p.m.) in a battle of last season's CCS Division I and II champions.
