Maddie Trabucco made 15 saves to help lead Santa Barbara's girls water polo team past Orange County No. 1 Foothill, 5-4, in the finals of the Irvine SoCal championships Saturday in Irvine.

The victory positions the Dons to earn the top seed for the upcoming CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs.

Coach Mark Walsh's team has now captured 15 consecutive games and adds the SoCal title to its crown at the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions last month.

Santa Barbara also is the only Division 1 contender to final in all three of the major regular-season tournaments. The Dons were the runner-ups at the Holiday Cup in December to Foothill, the last team to beat Santa Barbara.

More to come, including all-tournament honors.
