Girls water polo
The Wolfpack has extended its winning streak to seven straight games defeating Santiago Corona, 14-7, on Wednesday at home.
A day earlier they got another win, 21-14, over La Serna, and last Thursday topped St Lucy’s 22-7.
The girls had an away game against Los Osos after press time on Thursday.
So far their record is pretty evenly split at 5-6, but even when the Pack loses the games have been close.
On Monday Claremont narrowly lost an away game against Walnut, 62-60. The Pack had a two-point lead at the half but went cold in the third quarter and trailed 50-38. The boys rallied in the final quarter but were not quite able to close the gap.
Head Coach Stan Tolliver has a pretty young team with just three seniors, six juniors, two sophomores and two freshmen.
Other recent results include a 55-49 win over Sunny Hills on Saturday, a 54-45 win over Irvine on Friday and a 66-57 loss to Schurr on Thursday.
Their next game will be an away Palomares League opening game against Alta Loma on December 18.
Claremont improved its record on Saturday, defeating Chaffey 2-0 at home. The boys are now 3-2 and will host Riverside’s Notre Dame on Friday.
Claremont lost two games in the San Dimas tournament last week. On Tuesday Roosevelt got a pretty easy, 51-22, win but on Wednesday the game was a much closer 53-41 loss to Don Lugo. The tournament continues this weekend but Claremont’s next opponent was unknown at press time.
The girls are currently 6-2 overall in pre-league play.
