   Get soaked, get stoked! Lots of anticipation has been going around for the various types of sports going into their 2018 seasons, especially for the Rodriguez girls varsity water polo team. Since the middle of summer, these ladies have been working to build their team. High standards have been set for the season, but with hard work and determination, the mustangs will have a season full of fun and excitement.

   On Thursday August 23, 2018 the lady mustangs varsity water polo team kicked off the new school year with their first preseason game against Vintage High School (away). The lady mustangs played hard and didn’t go down without a fight. The game ended with an unfortunate losing score of 2-13. Even though they didn’t take the win, a few highlights of the game were the two points scored by Trinity Straddeck (junior), along with the multiple steals by Logan Cherry (sophomore) and Ellena Simmental (junior).

   Reflecting on the first loss and game of the water polo season, Rodriguez junior Ellena Simmental shares what she believes her team could work on as a whole to improve, “We need to work on positioning”. Continuing on a positive note, she also shares one strength that she believes her team posses this year that will work to their advantage, “Our understanding of the game is strong”. Moreover, one thing she says she looks forward to in the upcoming season is the opportunity to “bond with the team”.

   Although, the first game resulted in a loss, it is still only preseason. Everyone has faith that our lady mustangs will bounce back and bring home many wins in the upcoming year. Good luck to our Rodriguez varsity girls water polo team and keep up the great work!
