  For the girls and boys water polo team, practice is not just in the fall. Moose club began on March 29 and will continue until May 26 for the spring season. The summer season begins on May 30  and goes until July 23.

  Junior Sydney Bahr said, “From playing for Moose, I hope to gain a strong foundation of basic skills. I also hope to gain knowledge on the rules of the game so that I can be as prepared as I can for the school season.”

  However, the team will no longer be held at Sycamore’s home pool. Due to Princeton’s remodeling and updating of their natatorium, practices have been moved to Princeton for the first year.

  Bahr said, “I am glad we are doing Moose at Princeton because it is a new facility and is an all deep pool. It is also very cold, so I will be able to get used to the cold temperatures.”

  The boys team will have practice on Mondays and Wednesdays each week, and the girls will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All practices will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

  The teams will have competitions in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Michigan, and California. The two tournaments’ help in Cincinnati are the River City Invitational and the Cincinnati Shoot-out For Jose Cerda Aquatic Foundation.

  Bahr said, “I am excited to participate in tournaments since I have heard they are super fun and worth it to develop experience.”
