As the season is nearing the end, the girls are gearing up for Conference and Sectional playoffs with a great attitude and hard work ethic.

Week of March 19th & April 2nd Girls Water Polo has been struggling with a tough schedule with losses to St. Charles East, St. Charles North, Riverside Brookfield, Oak Park River Forest and Resurrection High Schools. Despite a flue virus going through most of the athletes, the girls have been playing hard. The team worked hard during Spring Break with lots of intense cardio training which paid off with both Varsity and Junior Varsity wins over Vernon Hills on Thursday evening. Both levels are healthy and with hard work and building higher levels of experience, we are looking forward to a strong finish and lots of individual athletic improvement throughout the team.
