Annika Jensen and Natalie Seidemann completed stellar Campolindo High water polo careers by combining for 13 goals in a 19-6 win over Miramonte in the North Coast Section Division II championship game Saturday at Acalanes.
Behind Jensen and Seidemann, both starters since their freshman seasons, the Cougars (24-3) earned their third section title in the last four years.
"I feel like this (title) is a little more special because I'm a senior and I'm leaving a legacy," said Jensen, who signed with USC earlier this week.
Miramonte (20-7) led 3-2 in the first quarter before Campolindo erupted for 11 consecutive goals. Seidemann, who's bound for UC Irvine, buried a pair of shots from two meters and hit another from outside to put the Cougars up 6-3 in the second quarter.
Then Jensen caught fire. She began her scoring surge with a counterattack goal before finding her groove on the perimeter. Four of her seven goals came in the second quarter, helping Campolindo take a 11-3 lead at half.
Kristen Hong finally ended Miramonte's long scoring drought in the third quarter, but the Cougars were well in control by that point.
Brooke Presten added three goals for the Cougars, and the Matadors' were led by Lauren Paxton's two scores.
Campo's only losses this season came against Division I champion San Ramon Valley. They beat Miramonte four times.
San Ramon Valley 9, Monte Vista 6: Kat Klass had two goals and an assist to lead the Wolves, who completed a perfect season and captured their third straight NCS Division I championship.
Klass scored the game's first goal less than two minutes in and San Ramon Valley (27-0) did not look back, as her sister, Sarah Klass, also scored twice.
In the second quarter, one of Sarah's scores came off an assist from Kat.
"As our team calls it, it's the sister connection, and we are lucky to have it," said San Ramon Valley coach Heather Johnston.
San Ramon Valley controlled possession for most of the game and never trailed, despite Monte Vista outscoring San Ramon Valley 2-1 in the third quarter to cut the Wolves' lead to 7-4 going into the fourth. However, the Wolves answered with two-straight goals to put the game away.
Courtney Fahey had four goals and an assist for the Mustangs (16-10).
