Five club water polo teams with local players made a sizable splash at the National Junior Olympics, finishing among the top five in their respective divisions. The Bay Area hosted last month’s tournament.

Stanford Water Polo Club’s 14-and-under boys team – featuring four Los Altos residents – bagged a bronze medal. Los Altos-based NorCal Aquatics’ under-16 girls squad finished third in its division, while the club’s 18 boys and girls placed fourth and fifth, respectively, and Stanford’s 16 boys took fifth.
