Girls water polo builds chemistry and teamsmanship

The girls water polo team has built a strong team chemistry.


As they bond, the girls water polo team’s leaders are attempting to help each player to overcome the challenges of the season.
Now that the 2022 season is over, many senior players will be leaving the team. Although it was challenging, this was a positive thing, according to varsity water polo player Morgan James.
“As a senior I hope that [underclassmen] take everything that I’ve given them,” James said.
According to head coach Dan Fleck, with every coming year, the team attempts to gain more experience and lessons.
“I’ve seen a lot of growth within the team as far as team chemistry,” Fleck said. “They really are working together much better than they originally started.”
According to James, as the season comes to a close it is evident to the team that they have progressed as athletes. “There’s tons of girls on our team that are filling in great spots,” Fleck said.
In addition to the many departing seniors, there are some freshmen that stepped up to the challenge.
“Maddie Healy, she’s a freshman this year. She started really strong,” James said. “I’m a set player so I was able to work with her and she just takes everything I say and applies it.”
Fleck and James agree that the current and future season is in good hands with the rest of the team.
