Chargers finish regular season a perfect 27-0

Dos Pueblos completed its second straight perfect regular season by beating San Marcos 15-4 in the Channel League girls water polo finale at the Elings Aquatic Center.

On Senior Day, senior Lauren Shackelford led the league-champion Chargers (27-0, 8-0) with four goals, and senior goalie Chandler Vilander had five saves.

Their winning streak is now 63 games. They’ll begin their run to a fourth straight CIF title next week.

Seven DP seniors, who have been part of the CIF championships and the winning streak, were playing their final regular season home match. They are Shackelford, Vilander, Tiera Schroeder, Kiley Neushul, Alayna St. Oegger, Nicole Morelos and Tahnia Mark.

For San Marcos, which qualified for the CIF playoffs as the third-place team, Brittny Hummel and Rose Koper each scored two goals.

“I was happy to see the two co-captains lead the team in our last Channel League outing,” San Marcos coach Chuckie Roth said.

Ashley Wagner had three steals.

The Royals didn’t have starting goalie Alex Brown, who is recovering from an injury. In her place, junior Alexa Hart played in the cage and made two saves and had five steals against the No. 1-ranked team

“I could not be more proud,” Roth said of his team, which finished 18-11 on the season (4-4 in league). “My kids work hard and have a lot to be proud of. I look forward to CIF next week, however I don’t want to say good bye to this group of seniors.”
