Girls' Wopo Splashes Mt. Tamalpais Out of the Water

 The water polo team has been toiling away in Herbst Natatorium since long before school began. All the hard work paid off in the first game of the season. The SI girls' water polo teams faced off against Mt. Tamalpais High School of Marin. Though Tam scored the first goal of the game, SI was quick to come back with many goals of their own. The game was very fast-paced, but Tam could not respond quickly enough to the shots the wildcats were taking.

SI finished the game with a total of 18 goals, including one scored by the goalie, while Tam fell short with only 7.  Wildcat Catherine Summa '14 scored all four of her penalty shots, and two-meter player Raquel Gueits '15 drew multiple ejections and penalties to give SI opportunities to score. "We played great in our season opener. This team has much potential for this season and we're psyched to start with such a great win," noted Fiona Shorrock '14. This game was a very strong showing on the part of the Cats, who demolished one of the strongest MCAL teams by a considerable margin. "It was a tough game at first, but in the end we were able to work together and come out with a win," said Brittney Murray '14. The rest of the official league games in the WCAL will be a challenge for SI, who lost many experienced seniors in last year's graduating class. However, the upperclassmen, plus freshman Allison Schaum '16, the newest addition to the team, are ready to step up their game.
