Waterpolo Vikings Win Ocean League Title After Sinking Beverly Hills And El Segundo: Update #1 Vikings Beat El Segundo 11-6

The Santa Monica High School Boys Water Polo Team (21-6) played for the division title Monday and won decisively 16-8 over the Beverly Hills Normans.

The Vikings continued their rout of the Ocean League by beating the El Segundo Eagles 11-6 Wednesday at the El Segundo Municipal Plunge, and with the win they are the undisputed Ocean League champions.

Santa Monica High School Waterpolo Head Coach Matt Flanders was proud of the way the Vikings have dominated the Ocean League this season.

“We are sole league champions,” said Flanders.

The Vikings have dominated every team they have played against in the Ocean League going 8-0 utilizing the outstanding play of shooters Jackson Hauty, Robbie Staenberg, and Matthew Ciatrone.

Flanders singled out shooter Sam Reemer who has stepped up his play as of late and has contributed to the Vikings success late in the season.

Santa Monica High School goalie Jack Schwartzman has also played a large factor in the Vikings success limiting goals scored against the Vikings during league play.

With the combination of this cluster of powerful shooters, the Vikings have a good chance at going far in the CIF playoffs this year.

“The win over Beverly Hills was a great way to end our home season,” said Flanders.

The Vikings will enter the playoffs as the top seed in the Ocean League.
