The Patriots huddle up before the game.

The girls varsity water polo team ended its strong season after a close defeat at playoffs.

“I think we did really well,” senior Kyrah Hunter said. “We were against tough teams and we came out on top.”

Last Thursday, the Birmingham Charter Community High School (BCCHS) water polo team faced off against Eagle Rock High School during the playoffs. Birmingham scored an impressive first shot in the game. Despite the team’s consistent determination throughout the game, the Patriots lost by a score of 5-3.  Although the girls were unable to advance to championships, they played with strength and unity.

“We aren’t just a team,” Hunter said. “We are friends in and out of the water. We lift each other up.”

Spirits remained high through the large audience that gathered to watch the playoffs. The crowd cheered with every score and chanted “Let’s go Patriots, lets go” throughout the duration of the game.

The team started their season off strong with a victory against Culver City. They continued their winning streak against Whittier High School, winning first place in the tournament. They kept their momentum going all season. Even after a loss, the team quickly rebounded. With an overall score of 22 wins and 6 losses, the BCCHS girls water polo team excelled this season.

“The greatest thing about water polo is that when you’re in the water, everything else goes away,” Hunter said.
