EL DORADO HILLS — Oak Ridge High’s boys and girls water polo programs hosted games against Jesuit and and St. Francis Tuesday at the CSD pool, losing both Delta Valley Conference matchups.

Following an exciting JV upset where the Trojans edged Jesuit 7-6 in overtime, Oak Ridge’s varsity boys struggled to find momentum, falling 14-6 to a stingy Jesuit defense and smart Marauder passing.

Seniors Aaron Taylor and Trevor Dong each had two points in the loss, while teammates Austin Sanders and Christopher Nguyen contributed a point to round out Troy’s offensive efforts.

Oak Ridge was held scoreless through the first quarter as Jesuit jumped out to a big 6-0 lead. Dong and Nguyen found ways to score in the second, aided by smart set-up work by senior co-captain Austin Turville. Turville shares captain duties with Dong and goal keeper Kasian Strawick.

“My go-to guys this year are Austin Turville and Trevor Dong,” head coach Don McCormick said. “They work incredibly hard from both sides of the pool — especially Austin, he guards their whole set then goes down and sets for us, that’s an incredibly tough job to do. I also want to give credit to out goalie Kasian (Strawick) — he’s been doing a great job, he’s just a tough guy out there.”

Oak Ridge’s defensive efforts in the second quarter limited Jesuit’s shooting and Strawick made a number of saves on well-placed attempts at both upper V’s and one long range shot three minutes into the second that he closed down with the tips of his fingers.

“I don’t like losing, but at the same time they (Jesuit) are a very tough, experienced team and we’re probably going to see them make it to the section finals,” McCormick said.

The Lady Trojans fell 12-3 against a formidable St. Francis squad that dominated control and possession throughout all four quarters. Morgan Jones, Oak Ridge’s biggest threat offensively, was doubled the entire game, making entry passes from teammates Emily Uthoff and Mikayla Mefford a frustrating affair.

Oak Ridge trailed 4-1 after the first quarter and 8-2 at half. Uthoff was the only Trojan to score in both halves, picking up a point in the second on a quick fire to the right of St. Francis’ keeper, and one final goal in the fourth while Oak Ridge pressed to build some momentum.

“We kept trying different things offensively to see if we could break through … but no luck,” Troy coach Tim McCormick said. “I’m proud of my girls as a team, as a whole they never gave up and played well. The girls kept trying and pushed hard against one of the best teams around.”
