The Knights dominated their first opponent in the tournament, cruising to a 21-5 rout against Santana.

“I thought we played very good team water polo,” head coach Doug Peabody said. “We were communicating well, finding the open player and were able to show our depth with the amount of girls who were able to contribute.”

Among the leaders offensively were sophomore Jessica Webster, who led the way with four goals. Seniors Claryann Olofsson-Loo and Kristen Casey each added three goals while freshman Natalie Chun also added three goals.

Seven other Knights also scored in the lopsided game.

However, the goal all season was to avenge last year’s disappointing loss in the CIF finals against Coronado. In fact, no players on the current roster have won a CIF title.

That could all change this season as the Knights (23-4, 6-0 Western League) won two team tournaments as well as winning every game in Western League play — winning the team’s 10th league title in 14 years.

One thing is for certain, the Knights won’t be playing Coronado in the finals — they actually play the Islanders in the semifinals (which took place Wednesday night). Coronado topped Mission Bay, a team that had 23 wins and won the Central League title to advance to the semifinal game.

A win against Coronado will put the Knights back in the CIF championship game, a spot they are familiar with. In 14 seasons of water polo at The Bishop’s School, the Knights have reached the CIF title game every year.

On the other end of the bracket, La Jolla and Cathedral Catholic will battle for the other spot in the finals.

The Vikings routed University City 18-4 while Cathedral Catholic topped valley center 14-2 in other quarterfinal action.
