Water Polo Wades In Looking for Victory

The boys of San Mateo High are hitting the water once again. A special group comprised of the school’s most alluring, confident, and brave young men, the boy’s varsity water polo team is sure that it will do well this season. “We are confident, but realistic,” said J.J Halet, junior captain.

The team has played three games so far—one against Aragon, another versus Half Moon Bay, and the most recent one against Terra Nova—all of which it lost. “Those were tough teams and the scores were close, so we still hold our heads high,” said Dylan Babbs.

Even though Dylan claims that his team is perfect, J.J. Halet thinks that his men have more to improve on. “We need to get the fundamentals down, work together, and defend more ef­fectively,” he said.

Practicing for two and a half hours every day, they’re working extraordi­narily hard to smooth out the kinks and accomplish their goals.

The team has many goals for the sea­son. A major one is to beat Aragon’s team in the next match against them. In the last match against the Dons, the San Mateo team played a fierce game, only losing 8-9 by a last-minute shot. Frustrated, our boys are determined. “We’ll show Aragon who’s boss,” said Dylan.

As of now, the team remains self-as­sured and optimistic. The captains feel ready to play the upcoming games and lead their team to their first victory in over a year. But they need the love from their fellow Bearcats.

So be sure to come out and watch the San Mateo High School boys’ varsity water polo team on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. “The sup­port is much appreciated!” exclaimed senior superstar Marcello Palazzo.

(The Speedos are reason enough to come out and support the team.)
