It used to be that the word “freedom” held exclusively positive connotations for me, but now it’s really become a mixed bag. It all started in 2001 when President George W. Bush asked the question he felt was on the minds of most Americans regarding ...

Los Altos holds on, beats Mills 28-26


Town Crier file photo
Sean Lanoza rushed for 187 yards in the Eagles’ 28-26 win over Mills Friday night.

The fourth quarter belonged to Mills, but the football game ultimately went to Los Altos High. The Eagles held on to beat the Vikings 28-26 Friday night, despite getting outscored 19-7 in the final quarter.

Linebacker Duke Myers, who registered 11 tackles and an interception, snuffed out Mills’ two-point conversion attempt with just more than a minute left in the nonleague game.

Halfback Sean Lanoza “put our offense on his back,” Eagles coach Trevor Pruitt said, rushing for 187 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Lambie Lanman tossed two touchdown passes, both to receiver Patrick McColl.

Los Altos improved to 4-0; Mills fell to 3-1.

Girls volleyball

With a sweep of St. Ignatius, Los Altos claimed the Cupertino Classic Saturday. The Eagles improved to 12-2 for the season.

St. Francis beat Amador Valley 25-20, 25-10, 25-15 Friday in nonleague play. Taylor Poncetta had 13 kills for the Lancers (10-4).

Mountain View sank to 0-2 in the SCVAL De Anza Division and 2-8 overall with Thursday’s straight-game loss to Los Gatos. Moira Huang posted six kills for the Spartans.

Two days prior, Gunn topped Mountain View in four games, despite nine kills each from Rosa Lutz and Maegan Nevalsky.

Gunn – featuring three Los Altos Hills residents – swept Monta Vista in its next league match to improve to 2-0 in the De Anza Division and 4-4 overall.

Pinewood eked out a five-game win at King’s Academy Thursday. Mehra den Braven racked up 39 kills and 12 aces for the Panthers (2-1 WBAL Skyline Division, 6-2 overall).

Girls water polo

St. Francis dominated last weekend’s Amanda MacDonald Invitational at Menlo School, outscoring its four opponents by a combined 52-6. The Lancers drubbed Sir Francis Drake 13-3 in the final.

In WCAL play earlier in the week, St. Francis stomped St. Ignatius 13-3 behind five goals from Courtney Batcheller.

Fremont rallied in the second half to beat host Mountain View 15-11 Thursday in SCVAL El Camino Division action. The Spartans were outscored 7-2 after intermission.

“Mountain View senior Sophie Brotzel had a strong game for the Spartans,” Mountain View coach Drew Enlow said, “but a six-goal third quarter by Fremont senior Rea Brakaj was too much for the Spartans to overcome.”

Brotzel was one of six Mountain View players to score. Samantha Hartman’s four goals led the Spartans (2-1 league, 6-3 overall).

Boys water polo

St. Francis lost 12-9 to De La Salle Saturday in the fifth-place game of the St. Francis Invitational.

Three days earlier, the Lancers dispatched St. Ignatius 10-9 in WCAL play. Sean Elmurib and Shawn Welch each scored three goals for St. Francis.

Mountain View finished 15th in the St. Francis Invitational, capping it off with a 14-11 win over Monte Vista of Danville Saturday. Coach Gabor Sarusi said he was “delighted to see his young Spartan team put together a full effort for four quarters.”

Rey Castillo scored five goals for Mountain View.

Girls tennis

Mountain View last week earned its first victory of the season. The host Spartans dispatched Pinewood 4-2 in nonleague action Sept. 23.

They followed that match with league losses to Gunn (6-1 result) and Lynbrook (7-0). The Spartans’ lone win came from No. 1 singles player Sheila Ahi.

Mountain View dropped to 0-4 in the De Anza Division and 1-5 overall.

Girls golf

St. Francis suffered its first loss of the year, 225-233 to St. Ignatius Sept. 25 at Lake Merced Country Club. The Lancers – who edged Valley Christian 217-219 the day before behind co-medalist Valerie Wang’s 39 at Silver Creek Country Club – went to 4-1 in the WCAL.

Field hockey

Monta Vista squeaked by Los Altos 1-0 Thursday. The Eagles fell to 0-2 in league, 0-5-1 overall.
