Boys water polo defeats Cathedral High School

Paul Kurgan

The boys water polo team defeated Cathedral High School 14-7 in its fifth match of the season. The Wolverines won all four quarters, winning 3-2 in the first, 4-3 in the second, 4-2 in the third and 3-0 in the fourth. The squad moves to an undefeated 5-0 record overall in the season. 

Cathedral Highschool stayed competitive in the first two quarters, staying within 2 points of the Wolverines.  Goalie James Peace ’24 said he’s proud of his team’s performance. 

“We were off to a rocky start,” Peace said.  “We were able [however] to pick ourselves up and play significantly better both defensively and offensively [for the rest of the game].”

Attacker Daniel Mnatsakanian ’23 said he was proud of the way his team fought throughout the match.  Although the score was close in the first half, the squad was able to outscore Cathedral high in the second half by a margin of 5 points, winning the half 7-2. 

Mnatsakanian said the squad still has work to do. They look to capitalize off of their early-season success in their next match against Laguna Beach Highschool Sept. 9. 

Moving into to the rest of season, the most exciting part is really just knowing that there is still so much we need to learn and improve on.”
