On Sunday October 15th, the team participated in their first scrimmage of the off-season with local rival Boston College at our home pool. For many new members this was their first taste of a real water polo game. Special shout out to our new members Andi Kokkinos, Caitlin Yam, Carly Langan, Liz Harmison, Ezgi Nur Eyigor, Gaby Grund and Laura Tsang for participating in their first game as Terriers! Ultimately the team lost the scrimmage 15-19 after four quarters of regulation play. Great effort was demonstrated by all players during the scrimmage, especially returning goalie Varsha Srivastava, as she blocked several one on nobody shots with ease. The team was able to walk away with good spirits and specific things that coach Joanna Chan plans to focus on in the rest of the semester.
This weekend the girls plan to support the BU Men’s Water Polo team as they host championships @ BU. The men’s team enters the championship tournament as the #1 seed and a fantastic shot to win the New England Division. Good luck boys! We will be cheering you on the entire way.
