On September 27, our boys’ water polo team played a season game against one of their rivals, James Logan High School. Both the JV and Varsity water polo teams won their games, 17-7 and 18-6 respectively. The game started out very close, but soon our water polo team lead at the half. As the game wore on, it was evident that Logan was tiring out. Senior Brady Knight said “the starting of the half was a pivotal moment, which was when our team started doing very well.” They started to play a zone defense, but this proved deadly as they couldn’t hold Washington’s sprint offense. Senior Noah McFerran described the second half of the game as exciting play.  All in all, both the JV and Varsity teams proved that they will have promising seasons and look forward to their first regular season game, which is on Oct. 1 against San Ramon High School.

Huskies dominate over American

Coming off a disappointing loss to the Tracy Bulldogs, the Huskies bounced back to defeat the American Eagles 54-3 on Oct. 9.
Due to an injury on the elbow of his throwing arm, senior and captain David Ross was not able to play as quarterback. Junior Deandre Carter stepped up in his place. He threw for 116 yards and two passing touchdowns. Carter also had an impressive interception in which he took back 72 yards for a touchdown.

Wide receiver and senior Nathaniel Solverson thought that Carter did a good job starting in place of Ross.
“I think Deandre did good especially because it was his first time playing QB in a game situation,” Solverson said.
Ross, playing wide receiver, had four receptions for 59 yards. One of the catches was for a touchdown. Senior Rico Jones had a 44-yard touchdown reception and a 22-yard run for a touchdown. Senior Tanner King also had two rushing touchdowns.
“Scoring those two touchdowns felt amazing, but I owe it all to my offensive line for their spectacular blocks,” King said. “We had a great game against American both offensively and defensively.”

Both the offense and defense combined to play phenomenally and it showed in the final score of the game. The Eagles were held scoreless for almost the whole game. A field goal late in the fourth quarter put the Eagles on the board.

“We all just got to take practice day by day, buckle down and get business done,” Solverson said.
Washington is currently tied for first place in the Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) with Logan.
“In order to stay at this level for the duration of the season, we need to continue playing as a whole and get amped for every opponent we face,” King said.
