The girls varsity water polo team goes 2-3 on the weekend in Grand Haven


Spring sports are in full swing and the girls varsity water polo team has its hands full practicing and competing. Over the weekend, the team faced off against EGR, Grand Haven, Grandville, and Hudsonville in an exciting tournament of play. 

The girls traveled to Grand Haven this weekend in an attempt at a clean-sweep weekend, and although they didn’t achieve that, they still came out of it with a few solid wins and some games that came with learning experiences. On Friday, the girls lost to EGR in a tough battle but were successful Saturday with wins against Grand Haven and Grandville. To follow the two wins on Saturday, the team lost to Hudsonville and EGR. This left the girls at 2-3 for the weekend and a 4-6 record early in the season. The water polo team might not have come away with some of the wins it wanted, but the girls are feeling good about where they are early-on and hope it will lead to a successful future. 

“I feel like the team did really well. Although we lost to Hudsonville and EGR, we improved and lost by fewer points than last week and yesterday,” sophomore Ashley Schenck said.

With the roller-coaster of a week of uncertainty and emotions that the team is facing due to a switch in the coaching staff, seniors like Caroline Bell are just proud that the team was able to go out and do what they did. 

“We had a long week, but we came together and had a successful weekend,” Caroline said.

The girls will travel to Grandville to compete on Tuesday, March 29, for their last time before spring break at 7:00 PM. Grab a friend and make it out to support the team against one of its toughest rivals.

“We are really starting to learn each other’s strengths and weaknesses so we can work together better as a team,” Ashley said.
