After completing their inaugural seasons of Water Polo just one year ago predominantly at the Junior Varsity level, both the Boys and Girls Water Polo teams have started off the 2023-2024 season red hot as they embark on their first full season of Varsity competition.
The Dublin High Boys Water Polo Team defeated Moreau Catholic 12-9 in their opener at The Wave, followed by a 14-9 victory at San Leandro on Tuesday night to improve their record to 2-0. Anthony Rocha led the team with 7 goals, Shviansh Bansal followed with 4 and senior Michael Leung had 2. Kylo Fukazawa, spent last year in the goal and scored his first goal of his career from the field in yesterday’s matchup. Starting goalie Colin Novenario had 8 saves.
The Dublin High Girls Water Polo team is also 2-0 after a very successful opening week, as they went on the road to notch impressive victories over both San Leandro (17-6) and Antioch (24-3).
Dublin is also off to a great start in Varsity Girls Golf, as the Gaels won their opener 203-211 against Miramonte at their home course for the year (Dublin Ranch). Callie McLaughlin posted a low score of 25 to lead the Gaels.
On the gridiron, Dublin’s Freshmen Football team jumped out to a 20-0 lead and never looked back en route to a 52-24 road victory at perennial powerhouse Campolindo to cap a string of successes in the first full week of competitions.
Three sports which are yet to get underway include Cross Country, Girls Tennis, and Girls Flag Football, while the Varsity Girls Volleyball team is looking to avenge its season opening 3-2 loss at Castro Valley as they travel to face Pittsburg on August 25.
