JV Roundup: Water Polo

After beating Alemany 14-1, the JV water polo team played Tuesday against Loyola. Scores were not available at press time. Coach Pavle Filipovic gives the team a busy practice schedule.

The team has practice every day. It spends the majority of the time with varsity, but does some specific tactics on its own at the end.

Although Filipovic puts an emphasis on the boys getting physically stronger, he also focuses on their knowledge of the game.

“Since last year, the team has gotten stronger and bigger and is working harder in the weight room,” Filipovic said. “I want these guys to put their minds completely into the game of water polo and start to understand more complex water polo strategies and plays.”

Warren Snyder ’14, a new addition to the team, proved himself to be a clutch playe. Filipovic said he “immediately made an impact to this team,” and called him “one of the key players.”
