Grizzlies still own the pool at Woodcreek tourney
By: Kurt Johnson, The Press Tribune
Forty teams from all over Northern California gathered at four venues – the Roseville Aquatic Complex, American River College, Rocklin High and Whitney High – this weekend for the Woodcreek Varsity Boys Water Polo Invitational. The popular tourney features some great water polo and concludes today with matches at the RAC, ARC and Whitney. Led by a first-quarter scoring spree by James Vigeant, the Granite Bay High boys water polo team jumped all over Oak Ridge on day one at the Woodcreek tournament Friday at the Roseville Aquatic Complex. Vigeant scored five times in the opening period and a total of eight goals in the game in leading the Grizzlies to a 17-5 win over the Trojans. The win came in Granite Bay’s second match of the tourney’s bracket play round. The Grizzlies led 8-1 after one quarter, and after the squads played it even in the second stanza, Granite Bay pulled away to lead 16-5 after three. Andrew Murch and Brad Cooper each added two goals to the Granite Bay cause. The tournament continues with championship round play today at three different venues – the RAC, Whitney High School and American River College. Granite Bay plays at the RAC.
