I started playing water polo in the 6th grade. One of my best friends, who had been playing for a while, told me to come and try it out. “I know you’ll love it, and it won’t hurt to try,” she said. And she was completely correct. As soon as I started playing, me and the sport of water polo just clicked. The intensity, aggressiveness, and the feeling of reward in a game of water polo just draws me in. I’m confident that even if I don’t end up playing in college, I know that I’ll always love playing water polo and it will be in my life forever.
It would be amazing if I could get the chance to play water polo in college. I honestly couldn’t see myself not continuing to play past high school. I would be grateful for any and every chance to play in college.
