After countless hours, the development of some pretty bizarre tan lines, dry skin, red eyes, and innumerable injuries, Marymount High School’s Varsity Water Polo team has emerged as the 2018 CIF-SS Champion. With the help of their stellar coaches Nick and Kate, these varsity players worked tirelessly—and often without recognition—in order to make it to finals and win their season, making them the first Marymount water polo team to win the CIF championship! Sophomore player Reagan Whitney said of her beloved coaches, “Without Nick and Kate, our phenomenal coaches who took the time and effort to teach everyone the fundamentals, we couldn’t have gotten to where we are today.”

Nothing kept these players from absolutely dominating week to week, despite practicing in a freezing cold pool full of brush fire ash in the rain and hail. Junior Miranda Moon offered the experience from her perspective.

“Leading up to the season, we had practice every day after school. Once the season started, we added Saturday practices at Notre Dame High School as well. We worked extremely hard this year, and it paid off.”

This win is historical for the water polo team and for Marymount as a whole, instilling a sense of pride and accomplishment in each girl; it will boost morale and confidence for next year’s returning Sailors, while seniors can leave high school knowing they have left their mark on Marymount. Throughout everything, these talented, determined athletes made it farther than anyone—maybe even themselves—thought possible.
