Menlo boys top M-A, grab control of PAL water polo race

 

The Menlo School boys took a big step toward taking back the PAL Bay Division water polo title they lost to rival Menlo-Atherton last season by defeating the Bears, 11-8, on Wednesday in the Knights' pool.

Both teams came into the showdown undefeated in league, but the Knights left 3-0 (7-6 overall) and the Bears 2-1 (9-5). The winner of this matchup usually claims the league crown. Regular-season outcomes will decide the PAL champ.

"It's a bit odd to have such an important, impactful game at this point in the season," said Menlo head coach Jack Bowen. "We've essentially been preparing for this game for the past two weeks."
