GIRLS WATER POLO TEAM PLACES 3RD in D1 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!

The Rams entered the 2019 Girls High School Water Polo State Championship  as underdogs and emerged 3rd in State!  They started with a play-in win against Rogers to secure a spot in the championship bracket.  They went on to lose to the current state champions, Curtis High School, before beating Bainbridge Island Friday night.  The final day of competition started with a nail-biter win against Mercer Island (quadruple overtime!)  which was followed by an exciting win over Bellevue.

The Ingraham water polo program is only in its second year of existence.  This 3rd place title represents not only the dedication and hard work of the athletes and coach but also the rousing support of the IHS fans and athletic department!  The team thanks the entire Ram community for a fantastic season!

Second Team: Eliza Wilkins, Katherine Rea

Honorable Mention: Isla Boyle

Defensive MVP: Dara Schoolcraft

Coach of the Tournament: Coach Laura Rudolph

IHS players: Erin Anderson, Clara Blanchard, Isla Boyle, Ariana Cory, Ruby Dirks, Sophie Kosev, Elli Latorelle, Katherine Rea, Karlee Taylor, Zoe Wheeler, Eliza Wilkins

Water polo is a competitive team sport with two teams, each consisting of 7 players in the water.  Like in basketball, players play both offense and defense with the objective being to score the most goals.  The game consists of 4 seven minute quarters.  We aim to have a ton of fun while learning to play better as a team and do a little winning on the side. Our team's focus is to develop new players and teach the principles of the game.

Cost
Water polo is a club sport at Ingraham meaning you have to pay to play.  The cost is $500 per player.  But, if you cannot afford that, please come anyway—we want everyone to have the chance to play this very fun sport. Water polo requires little personal equipment: only a swimsuit, swim cap, and towel, plus goggles for swim sets during practice. 
 
Come give it a try! You should know how to swim, but we will teach you the rest. Polo is a super fun sport.  Most of us are pretty new, and we can learn together.  Come to a practice or two. If you don’t like it, nothing lost!

Ingraham Rams first ever Girls water polo game
