Girls’ water polo suits up for playoffs

The varsity girls’ water polo team finishes out a strong league season and looks forward to a likely promising Central Coast Section playoff run.

The senior heavy team ended the year with a 5-2 league record, only losing their last two games of the season.

“We’ve been focusing on getting more people involved in the offense and getting more people to score,” senior co-captain Rachel Maxwell said. “We’ve been working a lot on our counter defense, too.”

Despite the recent losses, which were impacted by practices being cancelled due to the poor air quality caused by the California wildfires, the team’s playoff prospects look positive.

“I think we have a really good chance of going to CCS and doing really well in league champs,” Maxwell said.

The team has its first Pacific Athletic League tournament game this week. If they win the first game, the team will qualify for CCS playoffs.
