Hello New Players!

We were all very excited to see the new players at our first meeting of the season. We know the information may be slightly overwhelming but don’t worry. We’ll be there to help you!

Here’s a quick recap of what we discussed:

  • Practices: It would be best if you would show up to as many practices as you can. If you want to practice swimming or do swim sets, you can join the returning players on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
  • Fun-raising: In order for us to travel and compete in tournaments, especially the one in Florida on December 1-2, we’re going to work as a team to raise money. Plus, fundraisers are great team-bonding events. 🙂
  • Agganis Clean-Up: Mark your calendar for the Agganis clean up on December 8 at 9pm. We raise a lot of money and we need as many people to help out.
  • Dues: For this season, dues are $60. You can pay in cash or make the cheque out to BU Women’s Water Polo. Our treasurer, Shireen, will be collecting them from Sept. 27-30.

If you’re still unsure about joining, come to our practices and see if you like water polo. We’ll teach you how to egg beat or throw a ball in the water. You’ll be a water polo player in no time. See you guys on Friday!

Kick-Starting the 2012 Season With Some Wins!

The Lady Terriers started their season off right last weekend with three wins and one very close loss.

First, the Terriers went up against Dartmouth, who has had a very strong team for the past two years. In 2010 and 2011, Dartmouth and Boston College have contended for the title of League Champions. This weekend, the Terriers came out on top defeating Dartmouth with a final score of 9-5.

The Terrier’s second game, Yale, was the toughest one of the weekend. The Terriers endured a tough loss to the Bulldogs with a final score of 9-8 but plan on making a comeback at the next tournament in April.

In the third game of the day, the Terriers took on Williams and came out with a win and a final score of 13-5. This was an especially satisfying win for the Terriers who were unexpectedly defeated by Williams at last year’s Championship tournament.

The last game of the weekend against the newest addition to the New England Division, Middlebury, turned out to be a success for the Terriers who took the game with a final score of 11-5.

With such a strong start to the season, the Terriers are hoping to go all the way this year!
