JV Boys’ Water Polo

By Nicole Gould

After winning the AgouraHigh School Tournament, the JV water polo team played its first non-league game against La Cañada yesterday; results were not available as of press time.
“It’s essentially the same team from last year and almost all sophomores. It’s nice to play with the same guys year after year,” Alan Vucetic ’13 said.

The JV water polo team practices throughout the school week before and after school. In addition to pool practices, players lift weights twice a week.

Though JV Head Coach Pavle Filipovic has coached at Harvard-Westlake for only two years, he has already formed a great connection with the team, Vucetic said.

“Pavle is a great coach because he constantly pushes us to improve and takes our mistakes as chances to teach us, not to yell at us,” Vucetic said.

The team’s next game is a home game against Mater Dei High School on Sept. 28.
