With only a few games into the season, the varsity and junior varsity (JV) girls water polo still have time to show what they’re made of, and so far so good.

“I think we’re just as good as the boys, some of us a little better and I think we can get just as far” water polo set defense player Rosemary Vazquez said.

Varsity’s first game against Burbank High School was a very close match but ended in a lose 4-3, even with double after time. They won their second game against Culver City High School 11-10.

The next game will be on Wednesday Dec. 16, against Bishop Alemany High School.

“Last season we did really good, varsity lost just one game,” Vazquez said. “We scored third place in the CIF(California Interscholastic Federation) championships.”

JV is doing just like varsity is, they have the same amount of wins and loses. The Although they did not make it to city championship last year, they plan on attending this season.

They look up to the varsity players because of how good they are.

“We’re not as good as varsity, we have to work harder and communicate more to get into champs this year,” junior varsity player Kyrah Hunter said.

In order for there to be success in any team sport, there has to be a connection between the players.

“We’re friends inside and outside the pool,” Vasquez said.
