Water Polo's Upcoming Season
This year, the boys water polo team made it into the first round of playoffs. They hope to make playoffs again, and take their season even further into the competition. The boys do workouts before the water polo season that consists of both cardio and skill fundamentals.
“It’s pretty aggressive… it’s fun because you kind of let out a lot of tension you feel throughout the day,” Parker Morris ‘17 said.
Late in the summer, the water polo girls have practice in late july to august until the season starts. In order to prep for the season, the girls do something called “dryland” which primarily consists of cardio workouts in the morning as well as daily doubles, where the morning the teams work on swim workouts and at night they work on water polo fundamentals.
“I thought we did really good… we won majority of the games,” Julia Prange ‘19 said.
This year, the Girls water polo made it into the second round of playoffs and are working towards competing for state next year. The girls are working towards refining more of the team dynamics and chemistry to run more smoothly.
“We have a really strong freshman and sophomore base and we have a really strong junior class,” Spencer Garfield ‘17 said, “so we’re going to be really strong next year,”
