Girls' water polo gears up for an exciting season

The girls’ water polo team is looking forward to a great season. Despite losing several key seniors who graduated last year, a third year varsity player, junior Rachel Maxwell, is optimistic about the upcoming season.

“This year we have been working a lot harder with the new coach and the upperclassmen have really been encouraging and nurturing the newer players to water polo,” Maxwell said.

“We are working a lot more on the togetherness and cohesiveness of the team.”

New varsity coach Perry Wu, former all-American high school player and Division I college player, is excited to bring new ideas to the team.

“We are returning our top scorer from last year [...] but we are relatively inexperienced as a team as a whole compared to all the other teams,” Wu said.

“I’m excited to see the girls improve.  It’s the one thing as a coach and as players, you do have control over.  For me, success is seeing my team and players demonstrate significant growth.”  

Support the team at their next home game on September 28th at 5:00 pm.
