The Water Polo Team Hopes to Rally Their Way to State

in Sports by

The water polo team, consisting of various grades in the high school, has made a run for their money. According to Georgia High School Association, the Wesleyan water polo team holds a losing record this season, but junior Harrison Dearth said, “We are undefeated because every match we have lost counts as a scrimmage in hopes to improve the next time around.

Knowing the history of water polo motivates the players to take this sport seriously and view the importance of it. The first ever game took place in Scotland and from then on it was often played in Great Britain and soon expanded further. The difference between Americanized water polo and the more dated version is that the Americanized water polo allows for rougher play. The rules are more flexible with physical contact more so than the older version. It is important for the players to know the past of the sport they play so they know how to progress and work hard.

The Alabama Crimson Tide was victorious and defeated the Georgia Bulldogs in overtime, with a pass into the endzone leaving Georgia fans in tears and Alabama fans in triumph, yet again. UGA fanatic and junior Josh Morris said, “by far the Most upsetting event last season was watching Georgia lose to Alabama in the National Championship.” After feeling like their football team was going to do it after 37 years, Georgia fans were in dismay, but the team and fans are hoping to have bounced back ready to attack the day this season.
