Advice for future WPHS Athletes: Don’t take it for granite, enjoy every minute of it even the bad ones because you never know what might happen and you never know how short your season may be

 

I just want to say thank you to my parents for being so supportive of me and for always being there for me. I want to thank Alex for always giving us crazy and fun workouts and for making us stronger. I want to thank Steve for all the time he gives us and for being such a great coach and for making me go harder. I want to thank Cathy for being the first one to ever teacher water polo way back in middle school and for coming to practice straight from work every day this year. And I want to say thank you to Barry for all that he’s done, all the lessons he taught me not only in water polo but in life. Thank you for teaching me that not everything is paint by numbers and that no matter what happens I need to keep going. And thank you all so much for making these past four years so amazing, I wish you didn’t have to end!
