The girls’ water polo team ended their season in their second game of CIF with a 25-2 record overall and a 10-0 record in league with head coach Robert Lynn. Last season the team had an undefeated record of 10-0 in league and a 17-6 record overall under former head coach Larry Felix.

“We have had a great season. Robert Lynn is a great coach and we have bonded as a team,” Camille Hooks ’11 said.

This season, the team played their first game against Long Beach Millikan and won 18-4. They then continued to participate in the Mistletoe tournament, where they won all five of their games. They played Santa Ynez, Hipomo, Cabrillo, Westlake and Rio Mesa and ended up winning the tournament.

The team lost their first game at the Irvine tournament. In their game against Murrieta Valley the team lost for the first time this year 10-11 in the third round of over time. They continued to win the next four games after playing Esperanza twice.

The team made it to CIF with high expectations. It won its first round game against Whittier at home 17-5. The team then played its second round game against St. Lucy’s High School and lost 9-11.
