Las Positas sports roundup: Hawks off to encouraging starts

The Las Positas College women's water polo team, which earned its historic first Coast Conference-North Division title last season, picked up right where it left off with a 20-2 rout of City College of San Francisco on Sept. 6 in the Las Positas Mini Tournament.

The Hawks boast returning all-conference first-team picks Negar Tehranian-Torghabeh and Mikayla Theide, among five sophomores.


The Hawks opened the season with a 10-8 win over Cabrillo in the Jose Martinez Memorial Tournament at Ohlone College on Sept. 6.

The Hawks, who entered the week with a 1-2 record, also fell to San Joaquin Delta and Ventura in the Ohlone event.


The Hawks, battling through a tough nonconference schedule early in the season, notched a 0-0 draw against visiting Feather River on Sept. 5, after battling state power San Joaquin Delta in a 2-0 loss the day before.

Las Positas continues to play stingy defense. Against Feather River, LPC goalkeepers Marisol Camargo and Maleni Morales both made three saves and worked half the game.

The Hawks (1-2) fell 4-0 to visiting Feather River on Sept. 5, playing the final 32 minutes a man down after a red card ejection. Hawks keepers Jose Castillo and Dylan Madrid each worked a half and combined for 13 saves.

LPC has a tough week ahead with games at Santa Rosa (2-1) on Tuesday, Sept. 10 and at home against Folsom Lake (3-0) at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13.
