Alta Loma water polo wins program’s first league title


The Alta Loma Braves girls water polo team won its first league championship in the program’s history following a 10-2 victory over Don Lugo in Mt. Baldy League play.

Prior to the season, the Braves had set several goals in mind which included going undefeated in league and winning the Mt. Baldy League title.

While the Braves fell one game short of going undefeated following the loss to Colony, 5-4, on the road, the league title was still in reach.

“As soon as the buzzer rang it felt so good to know we made history. It felt like we were on top of the world and no one could take that from us,” senior Lexy Poveda said. “It was satisfying to know that all our hard work paid off.”

For many of the seniors members, they are able to recall the the growth they have seen from within the program over the last few seasons.

“We were all so happy and excited with how far we have come. From Last season, we have all grown together and become the players that we are,” said senior Raeann Lopez. “I love all the girls to death and a big thank you to coach Kevin (Nesbit) for pushing us to our limits even when we didn’t like it.”

While the only goal for the Braves to accomplish this season is a CIF Title according Nesbit and he believes the only one standing in their way is themselves.

“Our biggest challenge is ourselves and realizing goals can be met with team work,” he said. “This group is the foundation for where we want to go.”

The Braves will wait for the CIF pairings to be announced to determine their first game in the playoffs.

The Braves end the regular season, in which they didn’t have a pool of their own, with an 19-8 overall record and a 9-1 league record.
