Los Altos Conquerors Water polo Defeats West Covina

Adrian Banuelos

Varsity Water polo managed to pull off a victory against West Covina High School. It was a hard fought game, because the Conquerors stuck it out until the end versus the Bulldogs on Wednesday, August 26th.

In the first quarter Adrian Sanchez, Senior scored 4 goals and in the fourth quarter scored 2 goals. Alvin Chen, Senior scored 5 goals in the second quarter and 3 goals in the third quarter of the game. The Conquerors came out on top, versus the Bulldogs, with the final score being 14 to 10.

Sanchez said, “It was a well earned game, because we put 100 percent effort into the game, and we did not quit once or get tired.” He does not want to hear any excuses, because he just wants the team to improve and get better, as each and every day goes by.

Sanchez also said, “We as a team kept our heads up high, even though they scored on us, because we couldn’t let it get to our heads, and we just kept playing as best as we can.” He wants the team to know that it is a team effort, meaning everyone needs to contribute during the game.

Chen said “For next week we will have to work harder than today, because Walnut is a much more competitive than West Covina.” In order for them to be the bet, they need to play the best out of all the other schools in HLPUSD.

Chen also said “Before our next game, we need to practice more on the fundamentals of Water polo because we are making careless mistakes that could have been avoided during the game.” If Los Altos wants to keep advancing they are going to have to not let their guard down, and want to win.

On Wednesday, October 10 Los Altos will be facing Walnut. The Conquerors must be prepared to face the Mustangs, as they have been doing well which puts Los Altos in a must win position. The Conquerors need to win in order to keep their CIF hopes alive.
