Del Oro’s girls water polo team defeated El Camino, 4-2, to take third place in last Saturday’s Sierra College Shootout tournament played in Rocklin. Earlier in the tournament, Del Oro dropped a tough 5-2 decision to eventual champion Miramonte, of Orinda. Kaitlynn Thompson and Joie-Lynn Howard scored Del Oro’s goals in the setback. Honored from Del Oro for their fine play by being named to the all-tourney team were Thompson, Howard, Jessica Lynch and Amanda Weddle. In Sierra Foothill League action last week, Del Oro followed a five-goal match from Morgan Callahan, four from Lynch and three more by Taylor Studebaker to fuel a 17-9 triumph over Roseville. Also scoring were Rachel Myata, who added a pair of goals; and Amanda Weddle, Joie-Lynn Howard and Katherine Sasko all contributed one goal each. Del Oro’s boys water polo team also defeated Roseville, 13-9. Thor Kampehfner and Jake Triplett both scored three goals apiece; while Kennan Finney, Alex Henrikson and Hayden Mack all added two scores each. Daniel Hawley’s single goal rounded out the scoring.
