Ready for some water polo?

What a weekend! First, the Sacramento Monarchs earn a trip to the WNBA finals. Then Fresno State puts the hurtin’ on Weber State (Oregon’s next!). As if things couldn’t get better, my trip to Candlestick, er, Monster Park, ends with a 49er win!

But I digress. Back to preps.

Right now, my mind is turning toward water polo, specifically East Bay Athletic League water polo. I’ll be heading out to Danville on Tuesday to see the Monte Vista girls play California in the league-opener. Several things come to mind when thinking about this matchup. Namely, what are the Mustangs going to look like? For years, we’ve grown accustomed to seeing standouts Stephanie Schnugg and Jessica Steffens do their thing in the pool. Translation? Totally dominate. In fact, the last time I saw Monte Vista in action, the squad was celebrating its dramatic victory over EBAL rival San Ramon Valley in the NCS final. (Mark your calendars. Those two teams meet next month)

But what about this season? Schnugg and Steffens are in college. Will the Mustangs be celebrating an NCS three-peat come November? Call me curious (it’s early, I know), but inquiring minds want to know.
