Louisville High School’s girls’ water polo season started and ended last Saturday, March 20. That’s right: one match, season over.
But it was still one more than the “Royals of Woodland Hills” thought they were going to play not so long ago, when the COVID-19-related shutdown of high school sports was in full effect. And all things considered, one match meant victory, regardless of what the scoreboard may have said (they defeated Marymount 13-3).
“Our students are just happy to be back playing,” said Marilyn Hyman, athletic director at Louisville, where 65% of the student body population of 360 compete in athletics. “Given all the constraints they’ve dealt with, it’s great for them to have some sense of normalcy again.”
