The Board of Trustees recognized Leigh Girls Water Polo Team for winning the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) - Central Coast Section (CCS) Division I championship title.
The team had a remarkable season earning 2nd place in the Mt. Hamilton Blossom Valley Athletic League and securing their spot in the CCS Division I playoffs. In the championship tournament, they defeated Woodside High School, Palo Alto High School, and Henry M. Gunn High School to earn the championship title.
The Leigh Girls Water Polo team’s accomplishment is even more remarkable due to the fact that the Leigh team competed for the first time ever in 2020 and came in second behind the league champions that year. In 2022, their second year ever in league play, they won the CCS title and participated in the CIF State Championship where they advanced to semifinals.
