Kingsburg: The Kingsburg girls

The Kingsburg girls water polo team would like to add a first-place trophy to its pose after the Nov. 9 game. 


The Kingsburg High girls water polo team routed Mission Oak 18-2 on Tuesday to advance to the title match two days later.

The Vikings were slated to host Sierra Pacific on Nov. 9 at 4:30 p.m. – touching off a big day of sports activity at the high school.

Not only is the water polo team meeting the Bears for the Central Section Division-III championship, but the Viking volleyball team takes the court at 6:30 p.m. in the D-IV semifinals against Immanuel and then the Kingsburg football team tackles visiting Chowchilla at 7:30 p.m. in a section opening round game.

It’s no wonder Kingsburg volleyball coach David Light has been talking about “getting there early” to find a parking spot.

The Viking polo team did its part on Tuesday with Brighton Kinney managing 13 blocks; Sofie Righetti three goals, two assists and seven steals; Jessica Burch-Konda one assist and one steal; Mary Rooney one goal, one assist, one steal and one earned ejection; Megan Buenda a goal and an earned ejection; Jillian Gipson a goal, five assists and one earned ejection; Mikayla Vierra an assist and a steal; Evan Yakligian two goals and three assists; Shay Hanson one goal and one earned ejection; Bridgette Garcia one goal, one assist, two steals and two earned ejections; and Tara Fry three goals and one steal.
