Sports briefs: Tam water polo’s Moll, Hamner commit to D1 programs

On the heels of its historic 2019 season, the Tam High girls water polo program recently saw two more players verbally commit to NCAA Division I college programs.

Abigail Moll will continue her career in the pool at UC San Diego and goalie Sofia Hamner will be moving on to Villanova. The two earned All-MCAL honors last year as juniors with Moll being named to the first team while Hamner was the goalie selection to the second team.

“Really proud of them. It just speaks to how much work and commitment they have put into the program and how that’s paid off for them,” said Tam coach Paul Hettler. “I don’t want to speak for them but I don’t know if two years ago they imagined they could play Division I college water polo and now it’s happening. They set their goals, they set their intention and their dreams on this goal and they made it happen.”

The Red-tailed Hawks finished second in the MCAL last year with a record of 7-2 and went 21-8 overall. They won their second consecutive North Coast Section title en route to capturing their first NorCal title.

Moll finished the year with 95 points, second on the team to Stanford commit and MCAL Player of the Year Sam Sternfels’ 198 points. Moll scored 39 goals, swiped 63 steals and dished out a team-high 59 assists.

Hamner, meanwhile, tallied 39 assists, 37 steals and 235 saves while conceding 118 goals.

Before the coronavirus pandemic ended their seasons prematurely in March, UCSD was 13-7 and Villanova was 4-14.
