Water polo: East Bay notes and rankings — 10/26

Many league champions have already been decided, but there are two huge games this week in the EBAL and DFAL that will decide who brings home the title.

The San Ramon Valley and De La Salle boys play Saturday. Both teams are currently undefeated in EBAL play, but SRV can’t look past their Thursday game against Monte Vista (last year the Mustangs pulled off the upset). On Wednesday, the Campolindo and Las Lomas girls will meet to decide the DFAL title. Campolindo won 6-5 when the two teams met at the Acalanes Invitational, but Las Lomas has been playing very well lately.

Acalanes dethrones Miramonte from the top of the boys rankings after a 9-7 win in DFAL play last week. The teams have split two matches this season and should be the top two seeds when NCS brackets are announced on Sunday barring any huge meltdowns this week.
