This fall season, the Davis High women’s varsity water polo team have a total of 22 wins and only six losses, due to their amazing teamwork in the pool.
The team is already undefeated in league play, and eager to take on all challengers.
“We are undefeated in the league and section,” explained senior Aly Lodigiani when asked how the team was doing.
Fresh off a 23-4 pounding of Del Oro, the Blue Devils are getting ready to seek revenge on the Campolindo team after a bitter 11-10 loss earlier this fall. who they are playing Monday, October 23.
The water polo team is now hoping to repeat their 2016 season, where they earned the title of Delta League Championship and the Sac Joaquin Section Championship, according to CBS Interactive.
Water polo is a viciously competitive sport, but the players of the women’s varsity team can’t get enough of it. “I like that it [water polo] is more intense than just swimming. I also like the team connection and how everyone is very supportive of each other,” said Lodigiani.
The success of their teamwork is apparent this season in their incredible defense, surrendering an average of four goals per game this entire season. After their most recent, and dramatic, win over St. Francis of Sacramento of 19-4, the girls look forward to a bye week for the first round of the Section Playoffs.
With the end of this year’s water polo season quickly approaching, the Blue Devil varsity women’s water polo team is dedicated to win the CIF playoffs and bring home the state trophy. “We are hoping to make it to the finals of Sections this year. It would be great if we could win,” said junior Izabella Terry. With the team’s phenomenal efforts in the pool, there is no doubt they will make it far.
