The Panthers have had a strong start to the water polo season so far, with a 17-4 win over Carlmont on Sept. 6, a 10-5 win against Half Moon Bay on the 13th, and a 8-5 win vs Woodside on the 20th.
This season, the Panthers welcome the addition of a coach, Austin Carr, who despite being the new coach, was not new to the team. Many players on the team participated in summer training at the Burlingame Aquatics Center over the summer where Carr was the assistant coach.
“I’ve been working a lot with these guys for a while now,” Carr said. “I know a lot of their strengths, a lot of their habits and it’s been easy to transition in and work from our success in summer over at [Junior Olympics] and carry that momentum over into this season.”
“[Carr] really meshes with the team, and I think we work well together,” junior Jason Shevach said.
The Panther’s next game is an away game against Hillsdale on Oct. 27.
