While there has been a brief hiatus from this page, we are determined to update this page and keep it consistently updated! Since our last post here over a year ago:

  • At Splash 2019, we had 10+ new members sign up for Women’s Water Polo! Some girls had prior experience playing while others just had swimming experience. We spent the Fall bonding as we had quickly grown to a team of just about 30 young women! Also new to the team is Assistant Coach, and BU Men’s Water Polo Alumni, Ron Glandian.
  • During Fall 2019, some of our new members took a day trip to Ipswich, MA for apple picking! We also volunteered for Hub on Wheels. Additionally, we participated in Halloween Kickball with the Men’s Water Polo team, and Gaby Grund hosted the whole team for a Thanksgiving dinner.
  • Due to COVID-19, our Spring 2020 semester was cut short. In the two months that we did have together, our new members tackled the challenge of being part of the team during our competitive season. The team also was present at BU’s Club Sports Night at Case Gym on January 22nd!
    • Our hard work and improvements made during the fall were on display at our lone tournament, hosted by Dartmouth College. The team finished the weekend with an impressive 3 wins against UMass, Dartmouth, and Williams, with 1 loss to crosstown rival Boston College. With the season ending prematurely, we were forced to say goodbye to our seniors: President Madie Janik, Sports Information Director/Social Chair and Co-Captain Macella Molenari, Vice President Gaby Grund, Co-Captain Mary Cerkvenik, and Andi Kokkinos (who faked us out by returning to BU for grad school!!).
  • Summer 2020 was spent by many of our members working while following CDC guidelines of social distancing.
  • Fall 2020 presents a unique challenge for the team as our practice schedule has been diminished due to the ongoing pandemic. We will continue preparing (safely) for our tentatively scheduled Spring 2021 season.
    • With all of the uncertainty in the world right now, one sure thing is that our team is strong and resilient and will make it through this pandemic in unity.
