Girls’ Water Polo Can’t Play

Swimming, passing a ball, and being defended by other players is the game-play in one distressing game: water polo.  This heat wave might be the best time to play in the cool blue pool water, but unfortunately this year’s girls’ water polo team was not as good as some motivated individuals wanted to start off their school year.
All fall sports teams are required to turn in a yellow athletic card, which registers you and your team to play by August 11. But the girl’s team, which consisted of only nine people, wasn’t able to turn in their athletic clearance forms in time. Most athletes are intimidated by the alarming stories they hear from other water polo players, which is why this team is extremely hard to recruit people for. The team needed seven players to play, but even more importantly, the “athletic club” won’t recognize your team unless there are ten ladies signed up. Trying to recruit as many players as possible during the first week of school, the girl’s water polo team only consisted of four players. Thanks to Facebook, the team managed to pull a nine-squad team together. Finally, they approached one more girl to sign up who agreed. However, six of the girls still needed to renew their physicals and get their yellow cards the next day.
Sadly, this is the second year in a row that there hasn’t been a girls’ water polo team. This means get out next year ready to play for a competitive but fun team!
Georgia Brown, a senior who was a former water polo player stated, “It’s sad because everyone that signed up to play was really excited, I know we would have had a fabulous time.” Brown also said in a more positive tone, “We tried our hardest to pull everyone together to try and get physicals that night, but it was just impossible.”
Although there isn’t a girl’s team this year, the guys have a full team registered and are ready to play their 2010 season. Come out to the pool and show them your support as they pull off a win playing in the sun!
