The Skyline girls’ water polo team had an exciting week of competition as they kicked off their postseason run with 2 victories over Dexter (13-2) and Saline (10-3) and fell to Huron in the district championship game 2-9.
Over the three games, scoring was led by senior Lauren Sloan with 7 goals (4 Saline, 3 Dexter) and senior co-captain Ella Enrique-Shakespeare with 6 goals (4 Dexter, 1 Saline, 1 Huron). On the defensive end, goalie Alia Tracy had a remarkable weekend tallying 45 blocks across the 3 games giving her a save percentage of 76%. Senior co-captain Aly Guevara led in steals with 8 (4 Saline, 3 Dexter, 1 Huron).
“Overall it was a great week,” said Coach Rebecca Godek. “I was especially happy about how we played Saline. We were 1-1 with them and had previously beaten them by one goal, so to win by 7 was exciting and I can see the improvement week to week which is exactly what I’m looking for.
“We are 0-4 against Huron and will likely see them next weekend at Regionals so I’m hoping we can tighten the gap there and have some momentum moving forward.”
