JV Water Polo look forward to have a great season

As the water polo season started on the first day of school, the JV water polo team is now busy recruiting their squad. Unlike last year, Boys’ water polo now has an incredible coach, Blake Hardin. As a former olympians, coach Blake graduated from John Hopkins University with four-years top swimmer on his swim team, and he now works at BAC as master water polo coach. With such strong reinforcement, JV boys aimed their goal on winning championship this year.

“We definitely need to work on our endurance to swim consistently because that’s the easiest job you can achieve at the game. We are confident and realistic, and I will try my best to prepare my teams,” said Blake Hardin. Although the water polo teams have a few of new players, they still have a long way to go.

“Practice is pretty tough for new guys because we work on conditioning for an hour every day. We swim at least a mile at the beginning, and we start off the passing and skill training afterward. Even though the practice is kind of exhausting, I would still love this sport,” said Andrew Ken, a candidate to be the next Dylan Babbs of the team.

“I enjoy water polo because I get to meet new people and learn new skills every day. I enjoy it especially because it allows me to exercise each different aspect of the full capability of the human body in one complex yet fun sport. Due to the increase of freshman and the enhancements of sophomores’ overall improvements, the chance of our improved skill this season is much expected.” said Yash Plorer a Sophomore .

“Water polo takes time to understand and enjoy the game. If you are not a person that commits to something and gives up then water polo is not for you. I enjoy water polo because I like to meet and talk with my friends and meet with new friends. I think this year the JV water polo team will do much better with the increase in our skills.” Said Paolo Castillo a Sophomore.

Water polo is a sport that takes time and commitment. The JV water polo team is determined to do much better this year and try their hardest to win all their games. They practice Monday through Friday after school, and they even practice on their own time outside of school.
