THE TIMES 1998 WINTER ALL-COUNTY TEAMS

All-county Girls' Water Polo

March 27, 1998

JACKIE FRANK

Goalie

Los Alamitos, Sr.

Clearly the most dominant goalie in the county and the Southern Section this season. The Stanford-bound senior anchored a stingy defense for Los Alamitos, which finished second to Marina in the tough Sunset League.

ERIN HAYES

Two meters

University, Sr.

This two-time Pacific Coast League MVP led University to the Division III final, where it lost to Rosary. Hayes is one of the fastest swimmers in the county and used a powerful shot and deceptive moves to score 99 goals.

ALDEN MOORE

Two meters

Newport Harbor, Sr.

The Sea View League's MVP led Newport Harbor (20-7) to the league title and the Division I semifinals before it lost to top-seeded Long Beach Wilson. Moore scored 69 goals and also was the team's top defender.

KRISTYN PULVER

Two meters

Villa Park, So.

The Century League's player of the year led the Spartans (20-7) to another league title. Pulver was one of the county's dominant two-meter players, setting single-season school records for goals (87) and steals (117).

ASHLEY STACHOWSKI

Two meters

Capistrano Valley, Jr.

Stachowski has established herself on the club circuit, so it wasn't a huge surprise that she was the South Coast League MVP in her first high school girls' season. Regarded as one of the county's best defenders.

JULIA WALD

Two meters

Rosary, Sr.

A prolific scorer, the two-time Golden West League MVP led Rosary to the Division III championship. Wald scored 123 goals this season after getting 137 last season. USC and Loyola Marymount are recruiting her.

JENNY LAMB

Utility

Marina, Sr.

Her all-around play led Marina to a 24-5 season and the Division I championship. Lamb's two-meter defense (170 steals) anchored the Vikings on one end, but she also scored 73 goals. Will play at UCLA next season.

DAVE CARLSON

Coach of the Year

Marina

A meticulous tactician, Carlson preached team unity and helped to motivate Marina (24-5) on its magical championship drive. Marina beat top-seeded and previously unbeaten Long Beach Wilson in the Division I final, 7-3.
