This week, Varsity Girls’ Water Polo team played two non-league matches. On Tuesday, our Varsity Girls’ played against Strathmore, and on Wednesday, the ladies were against El Diamante. In both matches, our ladies played hard and came through with very close scores. In Tuesday’s game, our team had 9 points while Strathmore had 8. For Wednesday’s game, our team came up with 8 points, and El Diamante had 6. Coach Evan Thomas explained, “Both games were a bit slow, but our fourth quarters were great. The girls exceeded my expectations because we have not had many close games, and we won both this week. This year has been all about learning because we lost all of last year. That being said, we started at a different place than the Varsity Team usually starts. The girls are less experienced this year, they are learning so quickly, and we are growing a lot more.”  The team will host Mt. Whitney on Tuesday, September 21 at 6:30 pm.
