Girls’ Water Polo DVL Champs

The LQHS girls’ water polo put away their suits and wrapped up their season with their final game on Saturday, Feb. 17 against the number one team in their division, Long Beach Poly. The LQ girls fought hard in this quarter-finals game, but after two quick goals in the second half by the opposing team, they could not catch up. The final outcome of the game was a score of 9-6 and the team lost their chance to win the CIF championship.

Team Captain Hadar Gamliel ‘18 exclaimed, “I’m so incredibly proud of my team. This season we worked so hard and accomplished so much regardless of our ups and downs. It’s been an honor to play alongside each of them. Our team is a family more than anything else.”

Previously the team had won DVL, the first championship won for the girls in the past six years. The CIF loss was devastating, but the girls will return with renewed energy and perseverance to fight for the title again. Gamliel said, “We all worked super hard this year and accomplished so much. I know that next year they’ll accomplish even more.”
