Varsity Boys’ Water Polo Concludes Almont League with a Record of 0-4
Assistant Sports Editor
The boys’ water polo team ended their Almont League season in fourth place with a record of 0-4. They played their final league game against the Schurr Spartans on Oct. 31, ending with a score of 1-17, and their last season game against Milken Community on Nov. 1, ending with a score of 5-18.
“We had a really good year with the new players and learned from our [past] mistakes,” junior driver Daniel Lindley said.
Even though the season did not end as expected, the boys have learned from their mistakes to improve their skills for next season.
“They started off really rusty […] Toward the end is when they endured more and were more confident […] They began to coach themselves and have come a long way from the start,” Assistant Coach Nathan Duran said.
Many varsity players had graduated last year, which meant that spots needed to be filled in the varsity team.
“We always tried to play our best but most of our varsity players had graduated last year. This led to most, if not all, of the JV players being moved up to fill the spots,” junior flat Wesley Han said.
The boys have overcome many challenges and will continue to enhance their skills for next season.
