The Santa Monica High School Waterpolo team nabbed six all-league honors with Vikings Matthew Cianfrone named as the Ocean League's most valuable player.

Santa Monica High School Waterpolo Head Coach Matthew Flanders was proud of the accomplishments of the Vikings and congratulated all the Vikings who received all-league honors.

"It's been a great season for the guys and we went 8-0 in league," said Flanders. "We had over 20 wins this season and we look to come back stronger next year."

The Ocean League first team selections from the Vikings include goalie Jack Schwartzman, shooters Jackson Hauty and Robbie Staenberg, and defender Dilla Kairo.

Defender Zeinali Kiarash was named to the second team.
