The Los Altos High girls water polo team is all smiles after winning the CCS Division I final.

The Los Altos High girls water polo team went 0-3 against Mountain View in the regular season, but the Eagles beat the rival Spartans when it mattered most – in the Central Coast Section Division I final.

Second-seeded Los Altos held on for a 9-8 win over No. 1 Mountain View Saturday morning at Independence High, where both teams sought their first CCS title.

Eighth-grader Allie Montoya ranks among the best soccer players in her age group.

When Allie Montoya’s parents sat her down for a talk, the 13-year-old thought she was grounded.

They actually had good news to share – Allie had been selected for the Under-14 Girls U.S. Youth National Soccer Team training camp – but they didn’t start with that. Albertin and Erin Montoya had a little fun first.
