Los Altos’ Diaper Dandy, Stephanie Contreas, a goal away from setting the CIF-Southern Section single-season scoring record

Wednesday’s Girls Water Polo semifinals
Division 6
Los Altos vs. Chadwick at Mira Costa HS, 3:15 p.m.
Walnut vs. Malibu at Pepperdine, 3:15 p.m.
Division 3
St. Lucy’s vs. Riverside Poly at William Woollett Center, Irvine, 2 p.m.

Are you following the best story of the playoff season, freshman Stephanie Contreas not only led the Los Altos girls water polo team into Wednesday’s semifinals with a Division 6 victory over Elsinore, 12-1, but her five goals give her 183 for the season, tying the single-season record set by La Salle’s Kara-Leigh Huse in 2008. Contreras can break the record on Wednesday against top-ranked Chadwick, though they’re on the road at Mira Costa HS at 3:15 p.m. BTW, did we say she’s just a freshman? Walnut is in the bottom half of the semifinals at Malibu. How cool would a collision course in the finals between Los Altos and Walnut be?

    Fred,

    Great job covering this amazing pursuit of this record! Wish she could break it in front of a home crowd at Los Altos…alas, the LAHS pool is garbage and doesn’t meet the CIF standards. The new pool that was supposed to be done 4 months ago is still not finished. =(

    On a similar note:

    Los Altos’ 4-yr starting Goalkeeper and last year’s First Team All-SGV Tribune GK is only one save away from becoming second on the All-Time CIF saves list!

    GOALIE SAVES
    CAREER
    No. Player/School Years
    749 Kari Bates, Gahr 1992-96
    509 Kim McCaskey, San Marcos 1993-96
    471 Valerie Vanderwest, Buena Park 1994-96

    Padilla Currently has 508 saves in her career! No hope of her catching Bates, but she will most certainly get ONE more save, even if the Conqs should lose tomorrow at Cal Hi.

    Congratulations Justine!!!
