Congratulations to these 14 amazing young women and to Coach Jina Button and Asst. Coach Katie Bratt for this impressive performance!! Go Knights!!

“Our JV team consisted of fourteen amazing student athletes, who came together as a team at the start of the school year. The girls competed with a tenacious spirit in the pool week after week from the first preseason game back in August up until the final game this past week.  Never did their prowess waiver as they learned the game, executed strategy and bonded as a group of friends and teammates.  Their desire to learn the game lead them to have a fun, positive and winning season, congratulations ladies!” --- Coach Button

“Many of the girls on this team began their water polo careers this year.  They joined the program knowing nothing about water polo but had this incredibly desire to learn and it showed every single day. These girls worked hard and gave 100% effort and it showed in every game they played. They are kind, smart and the embodiment of a cohesive team that all coaches desire. I feel lucky to have seen them grow this year. Congratulations JV on your incredible season!” – Asst. Coach Bratt
