Varsity water polo loses 16-0 to the Hudsonville Eagles


With spring sports picking up speed, the varsity water polo team splashed into action as it went up against the Hudsonville Eagles in the second match of the season. Although the girls battled hard, they lost 16-0. 

Hudsonville is the reigning state champion, but that didn’t stop the Rangers from giving it their all in the pool. The team fought up until the last second to try to pull off the win, yet despite everything, could not achieve their end goal. Spirits may be low, but their drive to practice hasn’t been stopped yet.

“It was a tough game because they’re a very good team and they won the state championship last year,” senior Caroline Bell said.

Even though the team came up short, this loss early in the season is a boost of motivation and will push them even harder to do their best.

“I think the loss is motivation to do better in the next game,” sophomore Ashley Schenck said. “It also lets us know what we need to work to improve.”

The team faces off next on Thursday, March 24, against Jenison at the Aquatic Center at 7:00 PM. Make sure to make it out and support the team.
