The Santa Maria Saints got off to a blazing start and never looked back in Wednesday afternoon’s 12-0 victory over the Pioneer Valley Panthers in a girls water polo match at Santa Maria High’s Karl Bell Aquatic Center.

Santa Maria's Vanessa Garcia Sanchez won the opening sprint to the ball, rifled a pass to Carina Nevarez, who lofted a floater past Pioneer Valley goal keeper Cassandra Victor from two meters out and the Saints were off to the races.
