Menlo boys nab first league soccer title in 15 years

The wait is over for the Menlo School's boys' soccer team. Menlo has officially been knighted as West Bay Athletic League champions and no help was needed. The Knights beat rival Sacred Heart Prep, 3-1, Tuesday to complete their mission.

The knight of Knights Alistair Shaw led the charge, assisting on the first two goals and then doing the honors himself on the third joust, er, goal.

The WBAL crown was a first for Menlo coach Marc Kerrest and his court. It was also the first soccer league title of any kind since the Knights won the Private Schools Athletic League title in 2002.
