The women’s water polo team just won their first tournament in Maine, hosted by Bates College! GO CHEETAHS!!! This tournament and the next tournament at the beginning of April will count towards the championship game. On Sat. March 2, the girls first went up against Bowdoin College, with 14-8, then went up against Yale University. Yale beat the girls last year in the New England Division and won first place, but the cheetahs fought strong and hard and won a score of 11-7. The last game of that day was against Bates College with 10-3. The next day, the girls went up against MIT and won with a score of 7-3.
The following weekend, the girls are going to travel to Hawaii for spring break! Big thanks in advance to the Cowan and Kheradpey family for their generosity in providing us with food, housing and transportation.
The girls have less than a month until their next tournament in Maine again, held at Bowdoin College. Even though most of the girls haven’t learned water polo until the beginning of the school year, they have shown definite improvement: they communicated in the water, had spectacular defense and shots, and thought as a team. The cheetahs are extremely proud of one another. Keep it up!
