The girls water polo team is in he midst of their sophomore season, and with a new coach and many fresh faces, the energy is real.

In only their second season of existence, the Chiefs have comprised a team of hard-working and dedicated girls who look to be serious contenders in future years. They are a predominately underclass group of eleven girls, seven of whom are sophomores.

The girls water polo team has a lot of learning, and a lot of training to endure especially against the competition in the southeast Florida region. There has been tough competition with past and current players committing to go as far as Division One in the NCAA. So the journey to success will be long, but exciting for these girls.

Their first game of the season against an experienced Sebastian River team ended in a loss, yet they were able to establish a presence in the pool and their waves were felt. Scoring five goals through 7-minute quarters, they proved that regardless of experience, they can and will hold up fights this season.

Head Coach Alex Feld played Division One water polo at the University of Central Florida where he brought over the philosophy of working harder in practice to make the games easier. The girls would likely agree based on the intense physical and mental training that Feld puts them through including 7-minute wall-sits and planks, with of course a ton of laps tossed into the mix.

After going 1-3 in a preseason tournament with a victory over Palm Beach Central and a tough loss to the St. Andrews girls, the Chiefs seem to feel comfortable going into the regular season.

“We will be able to put up a fight against the other teams in the county,” said Tyler Lasky, a returning sophomore to the water polo program. “It will be tough to compete with the more experienced teams, but we have the talent to hold a fight.”

With a new, dedicated and all-knowing coach in Alex Feld, a never-give-up mentality, and the heart of champions, I’d keep your eyes on these Chiefs.
