Where’s the love for boys water polo?          

The season has started for our Grizzly water polo boys to show what they have in the pool. Their season started well, as head coach Jessica Morris pointed out. “They having been doing very well in their pass games” Morris included that they aren’t going to stop getting better. “They want to improve in every game,” said Morris.

Our water polo boys have shown determination and dedication to play the sport.

The players have to leave Godinez at 4:00 p.m. and walk  to Valley High School everyday. It’s a 20 minute walk to get there and then they have to wait for Valley’s water polo team to finish. Sometimes the locker rooms are closed, so they have to change outside in front of whoever happens to walk by.

Due to them having to practice from 5:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m at Valley High School, they find a way to get to practice and keep up with their school work. Even if that means they have to stay up late finishing homework.

Varsity player Julian Reyes said, “There’s no support for water polo boys. We are left out.”

Reyes and all his teammates feel the same way due to the fact the there are not many students going to their games, and their sport is not as promoted as other sports like football and soccer.

Reyes has played football, and he knows the difference in support.

The team want others to know that the sport they play helps them to: stay in shape, improve their confidence and learn to manage their time. The team stated that “Boys should join water polo, it’s fun and you guys become a family.”

They hope to see more people come support them like the water polo team shows up everyday to practice.
