San Marcos Girls Finish as Runners-up at So Cal Championships

San Marcos finished as the silver medalists at the Southern California Women's Water Polo Championships, falling to Laguna Beach in the final, 11-3, on Saturday at the Woollett Aquatics Center in Irvine.

The Royals reached the gold-medal game by defeating Foothill, 7-5, in the semifinals. The victory avenged a loss to the Knights in the semifinals at the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions two weeks ago.

Paige Hauschild scored five of the team's goals and goalie Sophie Trumbull made seven blocks against Foothill. Hauschild was named the Outstanding Field Player of the tournament.

In the final, Laguna Beach beat San Marcos for the second time this season. It was only the third loss of the season for the Royals (25-3), and two of them have come against the Breakers.  They lost in the third-place game at the Tournament of Champions.

Kate Coski and Hailey Gellert of San Marcos were named to the all-tournament team.

San Marcos faces another tough game on Tuesday, hosting Dos Pueblos in a Channel League clash at 3:15 p.m. Dos Pueblos finished third at the So Cal Championships.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
