Pictured above, Sophomore Niklas Edstrom leaps out of the water mid-tread Practices often start with warmups that consist of swimming laps, the goalies on both the girls and boys team often use this time to practice their drill separately. “This season I personally look forward to my first season as goalkeeper” says Edstrom, “but for the team I am looking forward to the Seminole game.”

Water polo is a spring season sport, but during the fall and winter season both the boys and girls teams are in the pool practicing. Pre-season practices are held to see players strengths and weaknesses and improve before season starts. It is also a chance for potential new players to try their hand in the grueling sport. Both teams have many goals this year, including beating rival team Seminole, so these two hour practices are taken seriously. With swimming laps as a warm up, along with the occasional “dryland” exercise, like running and stretching, these practices are jam packed. Players pass to each other, stage defensive plays and scrimmage to polish their skills.
