The Braswell boys and girls water polo team is confident about their first season and looking forward to their first match Saturday.

The match is set for Feb. 25 at the Denton Natatorium. The girls’ games are at 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and the boys’ games are set for 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

“I have high expectations for both teams to qualify for the regional championships in March,” coach Sabrina Carlile said. “The team still has a long way to go, but is improving every day.” 

The team believes their faith in each other, along with their hard work, will take them far this season.

“We have a good team. Our team has a lot of heart, so we will overcome [obstacles] with hard work,” sophomore Paul Santibanez said

The team has been preparing for the water polo season since the end of January.

“We practice at the Natatorium every day for two hours,” sophomore Gage Pickens said. 

Most water polo players, like Pickens, are also swimmers, which could be an advantage for the team.

“I am a swimmer, so water polo was an option,” sophomore Emily Mordecai said. “I thought [it would] be good for me, as a challenge and for fun”
