Varsity girls’ water polo looks to improve on last year’s record

The varsity girls’ water polo team looks to improve on last year’s losing record and secure a spot in Central Coast Section playoffs this season.

The team won its first game two games against Carlmont on Sept. 6 and Sequoia on Sept. 13 and is optimistic about the rest of the season.

The senior heavy team has already switched up its offensive and defensive strategies from last year, according to varsity coach Perry Wu, a former All-American high school player and Division I college player.

“We should be one of the more competitive teams in CCS,” Wu said. “But it is also a competitive year.”

With three returning 2016-17 Peninsula Athletic League All-League Teams players, including senior captains Allison Sullivan Wu and Rachel Maxwell and senior Clare Lei, the team looks to be in a good position to place well in the league.

“Right now we are really working on our communication and our offense,” Sullivan Wu said. “But, a lot of people have stepped up to the plate and we are looking pretty good.”

The team has a 2-0 record, not including tournament games.
