Dan Albano of OCVarsity offers his playoff predictions for the CIF-SS girls water polo playoffs Wednesday:

Division 3

Wild card

Rosary def. Bonita — The Royals (18-10) finished fifth in the final Division 3 poll and already own a 14-2 victory against Bonita. Rosary should hit the road again Thursday for Rio Mesa.

Dana Hills def. Palm Desert – Neither team figured in the final Division 3 rankings. The Dolphins are 12-16 but win a tight game at home. Palm Desert’s roster is young. Dana Hills junior Lauren Bellavia is a player to watch. She plays club for SET and helps lead the Dolphins with 60 goals, 40 assists, 60 steals and 72 drawn exclusions.
