The Los Altos High boys water polo team celebrates its win over Gunn in Saturday’s SCVAL De Anza Division championship game.

A gaggle of golfers from local high schools performed well enough at last week’s league finals to qualify for this week’s Central Coast Section championships.

Los Altos High’s Maddie Jun and Caris Kim advanced to CCS after strong showings at the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League championships – as did Mountain View High’s Katelyn Lee and Reeya Vasishta – while St. Francis High qualified as a team by tying for first at the West Catholic Athletic League championships. In addition, Pinewood School’s Megan Chou made the tournament, held Tuesday (after the Town Crier’s press deadline) at Laguna Seca Golf Ranch in Monterey.
