In a thrilling game against PRHS’ rival team, the Atascadero Greyhounds, the Bearcats pulled through with a win in the last minutes of the game. Taking place at Municipal Pool on Tuesday the 18th the girls varsity water polo team looked to be a shoe-in for the win at halftime leading by four points with a score of 6-2. As the game progressed the Greyhounds started catching up leaving the crowd and the couches on the edge of their seats, Coach East receiving a yellow card for arguing with the referee.

After each huddle it was audible from miles away the team shouting, “Seven on seven!” and diving into the pool to secure the win. Evidently in the last minutes of the game after a back and forth between the Bearcats leading and the Greyhounds tying it up until time was finally out and celebration through the stands erupted as the scoreboard said 9-8.
