MV goalie Wall lives up to name in win over LA

Although the Mountain View High girls water polo team scored double-digit goals against rival Los Altos, Spartans coach Drew Enlow seemed most pleased with the play of his goalie in last week’s 10-7 road win.

“Mountain View goalie Theiry Wall was awesome in the goal,” the coach said after the Sept. 13 Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division game. “She got 12 saves, protected the ball and made smart passes.”
