The #1 seeded MATS Men's Varsity Water Polo has dominated the NCS over the past decade, having won 7 of the past 8 (and 8 of 10) NCS titles. However, this year a new yet familiar face stands in the way of a 3rd straight title: Campolindo. The Cougars have not been a contender in recent years, but as the #2 seed in the division, they are a definite threat to Miramonte's "threepeat" aspirations. The MATS beat Campo in a tense early season battle by a score of 11-9 in their home pool. Both teams have improved since that game, and it should prove to be another tense and emotional battle between these two long time rivals. These teams know each other very well, and many of the players are good friends...in the off season. But in the pool, it will a physical battle featuring two strong defensive minded teams.
The game, which will be live streamed by the NCS (details TDB), is at 4:30 PM on Saturday at Acalanes High School. The MATS "8th Man" will be needed to bouy the team - please encourage as many MATS supporters to come and cheer our team to victory!
