Girls’ Water Polo

After an arduous battle, the girls’ water polo team claimed the district title.

Like the boys, the girls also faced their rivals from Mourning in the championship game. The girls, who had a strong team all season, were evenly matched in the game.

Regulation ended with the two teams tied, so the game went to overtime. It took two overtime periods to crown the Lightning champions in the 11-10 victory.

Senior Victoria Reyes lead the way with five of team’s 11 goals, while junior Vania Mishkin and senior Amber Lubie split the remaining six.

Boys’ Water Polo

After a slow start to the season, the boys’ water polo team made quick turnaround, but despite the improvements, the team could not get past their rival Mourning Sharks in the district title game.

The first quarter ended with both teams failing to score. In the second quarter, the Lightning were the first to strike and built up a 2-0 lead. After junior David Alter was charged with two ejections, coach Turnipseed was forced made adjustments.

The formation change left the Lightning vulnerable, so the Sharks attacked and took the lead. With time winding down, junior Eli Salk tied the game before Mourning regained it with less than a minute left.

“We really hate losing,” Salk said. “I’m going to be depressed for a little while, but we’ll be back next year.”
