Scots defeat Santa Clara


Varsity girls water polo defeated Santa Clara High School with a final score of 15-9 on Sept. 21, 2012.

“We played really well. Our team plays up next week in the Bay division,” stated Lauren Denney, a senior on the team. 

The girls started strong, not allowing Santa Clara score many goals in the first quarter. They ended the first half triumphantly, leading Santa Clara 10-4.

By the third quarter, things were looking great for the Scots. Carlmont’s score doubled Santa Clara’s, at 12-6.

“The team is better this year than last year,” added Denney.

Head coach Cole Bielskis said that his goals for the season were “to win a lot of games, improve every week , and improve a little each game.”

The players finished strong last season, ranking third overall behind Hillsdale and Mercy, respectively.

Although the team started the season off strong, they have some improvements to make.

“We need to work on our six on fives and our defense and offense,” commented Denney. A six on five is when a team plays with one player down after an ejection.

But with such a strong kick off to the season, the Carlmont Scots are in great shape and ready to take on their future opponents.
