Varsity water polo drops district opener to East Kentwood and ends its season in disappointing fashion


The first round of districts for the Forest Hills varsity water polo team saw the girls face a familiar opponent, the East Kentwood Falcons. This contest was a low-scoring affair, just like the last game between the two, and it also ended in favor of the Falcons. They went on to win the contest 8-2.

Junior Jessica Plantamura was not the problem; she had quite the day, going for 14 saves on 22 shots for a .64 save percentage. Junior Avery Verlinde scored one goal while also assisting senior Rachel Schenck on the last goal of her brilliant career.

Forest Hills ends its season 6-11 after an early playoff exit. Although they struggled for a majority of the season to play consistent water polo, they also had many high points throughout the season to be proud of.
