Girls’ Water Polo
Girls had a successful week in varsity water polo, winning 3-2 against St. Charles North and placing second at a tournament at William Fremd High School. Girls JV water polo also had a good week, winning a home tournament. Although they lost to Lincoln Way Central, a school ranked in the top 15, Girls Water Polo is optimistic about the future. “We’re really just trying to get ourselves a good sectional seeding,” senior Emily Garza said. “We play Naperville North this week, and beating them would really improve our ranking going into sectionals.”
