Lady Rangers' water polo team charges Spartans,
8-2, in NHS win
By Misty Volaski
Nordhoff's girls' varsity water polo team scored another win
last week against the Rio Mesa Spartans, 8-2.
The Lady Rangers were led in the pool by Alexa Bradley, who threw
in a total of four goals on the day. She was followed by Jill
Hasbruck, who netted two, and Kristin Swader and Kaley Dwire,
each of whom scored a goal apiece.
Suzanne Swader and Heather Reelings dominated at defense, blocking
a combined seven balls.
In contrast, the junior varsity Ranger team suffered a loss to
the Spartans, 9-8, as Nordhoff couldn't seem to find the back
of the net by the time the buzzer rang.
However, Nordhoff's Katie Stewart contributed five goals to
the NHS side of the scoreboard, and Amanda Lee halted nine goal
attempts by a more-seasoned Rio Mesa squad.
The girls are off for winter vacation until Jan. 9, when the
varsity squad will compete in the Buena Tournament and the junior
varsity will head off to do battle in the Santa Barbara Tournament.
Call Nordhoff at 640-4343 for times.
