Not every season leads down glory road and not every championship game has a happy ending, but for the girls of Grossmont’s Lady Foothillers, Friday’s match against second-seed Steele Canyon was exactly that, the golden climax of their Cinderella story, taking the game, 45-35.

“This is has been an exceptional season,” said Foothillers head coach Grace Campbell. “When I took over the program they were 2-22. This is my third year coaching as head coach and we’re 21-5.”

Making a splash in this season’s league competition was definitely part of the plan. What has surprised the West Hills’ girls’ water polo team is just how big that splash has been. 

Taking on Monte Vista in one of the last games of the season, the Wolfpack showed just how well canines can swim, easily beating the Monarchs, 17-5, on Wednesday, February 10. West Hills is leading the pack in the Grossmont Valley league standings and looks to have a good chance in post-season play.
