Despite losing to Acalanes in DFAL play and handing the Dons the DFAL title, Miramonte’s boys water polo team went into Saturday’s NCS final confident they could pull out the win. It was also the first time since 2004 that the Matadors weren’t the number one seed in the playoffs. The Matadors squeezed by the Dons, 6-5, to earn their fifth consecutive NCS title in water polo. It is the eleventh time the Miramonte boys have won the NCS water polo crown since 1994.
The Campolindo girls found themselves in the final against a favored Monte Vista team. Monte Vista jumped out to a 4-0 halftime lead that the Cougars couldn’t return from. The Cougars fell to Monte Vista by a final score of 8-5.
