Ontario’s Yesenia Preciado sets CIF-SS water polo record

Ontario High School sophomore Yesenia Preciado earned a place in history this week when she broke the CIF-Southern Section record for goals in a season.

ONTathletePreciado had an impressive 12 goals in the Jaguars’ 15-3 win over Montclair High School on Tuesday in the regular season finale for both teams.

That showing gave her 196 which bettered the mark of 188 set by Stephanie Contreras of Los Altos in 2010.

She knew exactly how many she needed going into the match.

“It’s a nice honor and I’m happy I did it,” she said.

Preciado has only been competing in the sport about four years. She was in competitive swimming but got bored with the monotonous nature of that. She has two older sisters playing softball at four-year schools and one had a friend whose brother played water polo and encouraged her to try it.

“I really liked it right off because it was a challenge,” she said.

Led by Preciado the Ontario girls went 18-11 overall, with a 7-3 Mt. Baldy League record good enough for second place behind Alta Loma.

Alta Loma girls water polo team goes unbeaten in league play

The Alta Loma girls water polo team didn’t just want to win a Mt. Baldy League title.  They wanted to leave no doubt – They didn’t.

The Braves completed the Mt. Baldy League season 10-0 with a 13-5 win over Chaffey on Tuesday. They head into the postseason 17-8 overall and are ranked seventh in Division 7.

Junior goal keeper Mallory Johnson managed 15 saves, continuing her string of stellar performances.

Senior Ashley Hernadez and junior Vanessa Murray each had five goals while freshman Julia Bensing-Ruiz added two. Junior Allison Hensel rounded out the scoring.

“The fact it was a rebuilding year and we achieved what we did says a lot about the heart of my girls,” Braves coach Kevin Nesbit said. “Sometimes passion and determination outweigh logic. It didn’t come easy.”

Alta Loma advanced to the CIF semifinal a year ago but graduated eight players, including all of its starters.
