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.

Alta Loma girls water polo wins San Gorgonio Tournament

Alta Loma Girls Water Polo wins San Gorgonio Water Polo Tournament on Dec. 27, 2014

Alta Loma Girls Water Polo wins San Gorgonio Water Polo Tournament on Dec. 27, 2014

Lexy Poveda and the Alta Loma Braves defeated the Murrieta Mesa Rams, 7-4, to win the San Gorgonio girls water polo tournament Dec. 27.

Poveda scored three goals for the Braves while Sydney Smith contributed with one goal and three saves in the victory over the Rams, who were looking to win their third consecutive San Gorgonio Tournament Championship.

Leading up to the game with the Braves, the Rams had won its first three games of the tournament by at least 15 goals apiece.

Braves head coach Kevin Nesbit was aware of the Rams accomplishments in the tournament, but felt the biggest challenge came from within.

“The mindset was really to go in and control our offense and keep the momentum in our favor,” Nesbit explained. “Our defense presented a strong case for our team in this tournament, it was our offense that was going to make or break us.”

Raeann Lopez, Leanne Butler and Kyleigh Marquez contributed to the Braves’ offense against the Rams, scoring one goal apiece.

Nesbit also believes that several lessons were learned during this tournament that can be applied going forward, including the importance of goal setting and teamwork.

“I make sure the girls are strong of mind, in and out of the water. I push them to achieve their goals, whether that be attending college, developing their skills to a certain elevated level, being a better well rounded person or student,” Nesbit explained. “We also learned the importance of teamwork (in the water). Coming together is the beginning; staying together is progress; putting forth effort together is success… I saw success.”

Lopez stated that the tournament showed the unity between the players on the team this season as they prepare for their goals heading into league play.

“We all have come together as a team and it showed this weekend,” Lopez said. “We are going to focus on trying to be 10-0 during (league play) and make our way to CIF.”

Teammate Monica Martinez believes that the tournament provided the team with opportunities to build off of.

“We have more opportunities to improve the way we handle ourselves and can learn how to surpass the difficult situations we face,” she said. “The tournament have given us many opportunities to play against teams that are a higher division, such as the team we played in the finals, which was a Division II team.”

The Braves (8-4) will play at 3:15 p.m. Jan. 8 against Montclair in the Mt. Baldy League opener.
