Varsity girls water polo beat Milpitas High School 17-1 at the Singh Aquatic Center on the girls’ senior night. Seniors Nina Levy, Sarah de Vegvar, Sarah Gonzales and Melinda Wisdom were honored in a ceremony before the game.

Many friends and classmates of the seniors showed up to the game with posters to show their support. Before the game, coach Allie Lamb introduced each senior and recounted the senior’s tenure on the varsity girls water polo team. The members of the team also spoke for their seniors, reading poems and anecdotes about them.

The girls took an early lead over the Trojans and were able to maintain their dominance throughout the game, allowing only a single goal from Milpitas.

“[The game] went really well. We all played really well. We got [almost] everyone a goal, so we’re really happy,” co-captain Nina Levy said. “This is a nice way to end the season with a big win, [in terms of] the home games in the season.”

Co-captain Sarah de Vegvar appreciated the support that the players offered each other.

“I think it went very well, especially when it came to cheering and supporting each other,” she said. “This game, there were way more people focusing on [teammates] in the game and cheering super loudly whenever somebody shot or set up someone else to shoot.”

Lamb also recognized her team’s chemistry, especially among the seniors.

“Our seniors played really well together, so it was fun to watch them get to go out and win a game,” she said.

Despite the game being the girls’ senior night, senior Sarah Gonzales saw it as an opportunity for the younger players on the team to learn as well.

“The team had a lot of fun and everyone was able to get a goal, so it was a great learning experience for a lot of the younger members,” she said.

The girls play Homestead High School at an away game next Tuesday at 5:45 p.m.
