The Academy officially dove in!  2017 marks the first season of OLP’s water polo team. This team, run by Coach Chuy (who played water polo in high school and for Mesa College), is made up of 17 dedicated players.

The idea of an OLP water polo team was sparked when a new student, Samantha Tyssee ‘19, became a Pilot. Samantha played water polo at Grossmont High School and was disappointed when she heard OLP did not have a team. She then spoke with Mr. Gonzalez, the Assistant Principal of Athletes, and brought him the idea of a team. The two then collaborated in order to turn this idea into reality.

 

There was an overwhelming amount of girls who were interested in this new sport and could not wait for the season to commence. The team had an amazing season, including two outstanding wins, and there are prospects for it to continue to grow and dive deeper into this competitive, fascinating, and high-spirited sport in the 2017-2018 school year.
