In an effort to qualify for states or play-ins this year, the water polo teams are focusing on their teamwork and positive mindsets to help them advance during their seasons.
According to girls water polo captain Molly Kreag, water polo can be a brutal sport when you consider all of the physical work and training the team has to do.
For the teams to make it to states they have to win a majority of their games to qualify for it. If not, they get bumped down to play-ins, which would be the last chance to make states.
Kreag believes the teams do good with supporting one another.
“I think, as a team, we do best with positivity and lifting up one another after a bad loss or someone having a bad game,” Kreag said.
Sophomore boys water polo member Chase Welsh also believes that teamwork and positivity is good for the teams.
“The teams are really close. We all have a good dynamic and like to spend time together to build trust and bonds for the season,” Welsh said.
Welsh thinks that all of the team bonding helps with the “games and teamwork” and bonds in general.
“We all have a pretty good team bond. I feel like that helps the games and teamwork in the games,” Welsh said.
According to girls water polo coach Dan Fleck, team unity is a necessity to have a good team. “I think the team works well when they have a bond with each other and believe in themselves and each other,” Fleck said.
Though teamwork is an important part of water polo, Kreag also notes the importance of having a positive mindset.
“Overall, I think, as a team, we do best at positivity and lifting up one another after a bad loss or someone having a bad game,” Kreag said.
Many of the players think that they do better when their teammates are cheering for one another and no one is hanging their heads.
