Girls’ varsity water polo finished the season 7-10, placing fifth in league. For co-captains Christina Daley, Kaylee Harlan, and Kathryn Haldin this was their last year playing as a wildcat.

The team celebrated their seniors with a night dedicated solely to them.

“Many of us cried because it was one of our last times playing with those girls in that pool. We each gave a speech about a senior so that added to the personal feel,” Mellany Wynne said.

One final home game the next evening would complete the season.

Harlan’s value for an education will ultimately determine whether or not she continues to play in college next year.

“I considered playing water polo in college, but the school I want to go to doesn’t have a team so I had to pick between my education and the sport,” Harlan said.

Other seniors such as Haldin and Daley don’t plan on playing water polo in college, but haven’t completely given up their life in the water. Both girls hope to continue their aquatics career with swim.

Harlan said, “I am planning on coming back to visit the team and swim with them so I’m not totally getting rid of the sport yet.”
