Fresh from their heroic and close defeat to the La Canada High School Spartans on Thursday, a match that stretched far into overtime, the boys’ water polo team looks set for yet another successful season. Now with two non-league matches under their belt, the Rebels are ready to take on Pasadena Polytechnic at home for their first league game of the season.

When asked about the team’s prospects for this year, Isaac LaMarr ’19 is confident despite the team losing seven of its seniors from last year. “Going into the summer, we were worried we would be short some players, but we ended up getting ten new players, so we are well-accounted for.”

With practices from 7-9 AM every weekday, the water polo summer training regime was rigorous. It was especially helpful for new players, however. “Most of the kids hadn’t played before, but we spent all summer teaching them the ropes and working in the weight room,” said LaMarr, “Now, pretty much everyone’s in shape and up to speed on how to play.”

In addition to maintaining the league title for the fourth time in a row, LaMarr expects his team to have another strong run in CIF.

Although the boys’ water polo team has lost both of their previous two matches, co-captain Ryan Huntley ‘19 seems unfazed. “We’ve had some tough losses, but both teams were really good, and I believe our team played well. Our team has a lot of talent and I think we have a lot to look forward to during the season,Huntley said. Despite playing South Pasadena High School and LCHS, two of the strongest water polo teams in the area, without a home field advantage, the Rebels put up a good fight. During Thursday’s game against LCHS, the Rebels forced the game into overtime before the Spartans outscored them 11-9.

Expect a strong turnout from the boys in blue on Friday as the Prep community looks forward to yet another impressive and successful season from the boys’ water polo team.
