Splashing Into a New Season

Our Bearcats are preparing for another water polo season, strapping on their caps and jumping into the deep end. The girls and boys water polo teams are back and are preparing for a season full of competition.

Our Lady Bearcats Varsity team has changed a lot since last year. Many of the experienced players graduated,  leaving the team with five returning players for this year’s season. Girls WoPo continues to only have a varsity team because of the lack of participants. This year’s squad is made up of 16 under and upperclassmen.

“We had a good first game, stayed strong, and that gives us hope for the rest of the season. Our goals are of course to win games, and lose the least amount as possible,” said Taylor Doi, senior. Some challenges that the Lady Bearcats are going to face this season are learning the game, and improving the basics skills of the more experienced players.

The boys this year have varsity and junior varsity wopo teams (JV). This year’s varsity team is made up of a few returning varsity players and many JV players upgrading from last year. All in all this team are filled with many experienced players.

“Water polo is like swimming and soccer mixed together, where you tread to keep yourself off the bottom of the pool and shoot and block your opponents. My favorite part is when a good block leads to an open pass and a goal,” said returning player, Tyler O’Reilly, junior.

You have a chance to see your fellow Bearcats play during their games on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. In order, the matches are JV Boys, Varsity Boys, and last but certainly not least Varsity Girls.
