Laguna Beach Girls Water Polo is number one: they win the SoCal Championship for the fourth time

Laguna Girls’ water polo team has won every tournament this year by wide margins. They recently played number two team, Mater Dei in the SoCal Championship and beat them by seven points. That’s a huge margin for a finals game in a major tournament.

Laguna has now won that tournament four years in a row. The girls played so well and each one contributed massively to every game.  

This is the last of three major tournaments that Laguna has won before CIF. And Laguna’s JV managed to get into this Varsity tournament because Newport backed out at the last minute, and they played 16th place.

Then the girls all had to run home and get ready for Winter Formal… They were lucky to get their hair dry in time for a different kind of winning look.
