Recap of Tuesday's Mar Vista High School's Girls Water Polo Game 
 vs. Clairemont by Shawna Chalmers.

In the Mar Vista Girl's Water Polo game Tuesday versus Clairemont the girls new they were in for a fight against a tough team from Clairemont. In the  First Quarter in a tightly played game  the quarter ended with no score, Great defense all around was played throughout the Second Quarter as well but Clairemont scored right at the conclusion of the half to take a 1 - 0 lead going into the 3rd Quarter.

In the Third quarter the game loosened up a bit as the teams traded some goals but in the Fourths Quarter Mar Vista and Cairemont played much of the fourth quarter with the game tied 3-3 each. 

With 43 seconds left in the game Clairemont had the ball and took a shot which Sara Carr, Mar Vista's goalie blocked and passed the ball straight to Isabelle Hastings who fought for inside position with the ball than dumped it in for the game winning goal. 

Shyla Toledo had a goal, Danielle Pena had two goals and Izzy scored the winning goal. It was a team effort. 

The CIF Title is at stake for the Girls Water Polo Team. The Girls Team has another game coming up on Saturday so please come out and support your Mariners on Saturday for the CIF title. Saturday at 2:30 is the title game. 


The Mar Vista Girls Water Polo team had its largest turnout the season. Having Varsity, Junior Varsity and a Novice team as well. Having this kind of turnout will allow therm to have strong teams for years to come.? This pic is our young ones that will be winning championships in the next few years.

In other news, the new hotel,

  owned by Imperial Beach resorts allowed the Girls Water Polo Team to use the lot for fundraising and their seasonal banquets totally free of charge and as good will to the community. They only asked that we "water polo" communicate their contributions.  They have been great all year helping both the Boys and girls Water Polo Teams.
