Women's Water Polo Needs to Bring Out Their Potential After Another Loss

In week three of September play, the women's water polo team has continued to be victory-less after two losses from this week's games.

On Wednesday Sept. 24, the Lady Corsairs faced a tough Citrus College losing the game 16-7.

"It was a tough game but we had to continue onto the next one," said Coach Steve Contarsy, the team's head coach.

With their hopes still alive for a game win at the San Diego Mesa Tournament it only proved to be an even tougher match-up for the Lady Corsairs.

Playing in a tightly contested game against Cypress College, the Lady Corsairs fought off a near defeat, only to fail down the stretch and ultimately losing the game 7-6.

Said Coach Contarsy: "We're in the middle of our season, and even though we haven't won any games so far, we still have lots of potential.

"We just keep improving our players potential and the season itself."

The bright side to the future of the team and its star quality players rests in the palms of two players from either side of the pool.

On the offensive side, Chelsea Kemp is the Lady Corsair's leading scorer with a total of 26 goals this season, racking up her total after throwing in four more of the team's six overall goals from the tournament.

Vanessa Schumacher, the team's official goalie and prominent defensive presence on the team, has "shown excellent play," according to Coach Contarsy, with a total of 53 saves for the season. With more games to be played in the season, Coach Contarsy still holds faith in his team stressing the fact that they are still in the middle of their season and have quite a few more games to play to turn around their team from star potential to star production.
