Both Tracy High water polo teams took losses in Lodi on Thursday, Sept. 27, the first league match for the girls and second for the boys.

The loss to the Flames of Lodi High put the boys at 1-1 in the San Joaquin Athletic Association, including a win Tuesday, Sept. 25, at Franklin. The Tracy High girls are 0-1 in the SJAA — the Lodi game was the Bulldogs’ league opener, since Franklin does not have a girls team.

Lodi took an 8-0 lead in the first quarter.

Tracy (6-7 overall, 1-1 SJAA) was more effective on defense for the rest of the game but was unable to catch up.

Varsity girls: Lodi 14, Tracy 2

Lodi took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter and continued to outscore Tracy (4-6, 0-1 SJAA)
