The CIF Southern Section Division 7 playoffs weren’t without pleasant surprises for the Malibu High School girls water polo team. 

After a regular season in which the Sharks finished second in the Tri-Valley League, the team’s postseason run saw two one-point wins — one in overtime while missing five players — and an excitement over just how far Malibu can go. 

But when the semifinal round of the playoffs started on Wednesday, Feb. 24, the Sharks faced more shock than surprise in the Hillcrest Lady Trojans.
