On Friday, Feb. 2o, the Cavalier girls and boys water polo team faced MAST. Although not playing home was a disadvantage, the teams worked very hard to play a smart and defensive game.

The girls game started off with MAST dominating the whole first half. Although it was frustrating to watch, the girls soon began to organize themselves better, resulting in a much more satisfying second half. Despite their hard work, the girls were defeated 7-12.

The game allowed us to open our eyes and see that we shouldn’t hold back, because we know we have skill and we know how to play.

The boys water polo team also faced MAST. Gables played well offensively but could not defend their whole set well enough. The season started out pretty rough, considering the fact that players have been getting continuously sick. The team also has a new coach, which calls for some adaptation to a new regime. The game was close throughout both halves, but the win was ultimately taken by MAST.

“It’s been kind of rough early this season, but we’re planning on getting a win soon,” player Manny Diaz said.

This tough loss has not discouraged the Cavaliers. They plan on working harder to beat the next team they encounter, Miami Springs, on Feb. 24.
