The American River College men’s water polo team lost its match to Ohlone College on Sept. 30 in a blowout by a score of 17-4 at home.

The team falls to 0-14-1 on the season.

The men’s water polo team will have two more matches before the season is complete, as they seek to win their first match.

The men’s water polo team still has a lot to play for despite not participating in the Big 8 Conference Championships. The players and coaches are focused on preparing for next season. 

“We want to create a hard-working culture which is something we are prepping for this season for next season and making sure people are held accountable and learning all of those life skills not just applicable to sport but life in general,” said Caleb Robertson, assistant coach.

The team is focusing on getting back to the fundamentals as they finish the season. 

“This season has been getting back to the basics,” Robertson said. “Understanding the key core concepts that are gonna allow you to be a good water polo team.” 

The men’s water polo team’s next match will be against Sierra College as they look to end their losing streak. The team will close out its season against San Joaquin Delta. Both matches will be at ARC.

Two bright spots in the match were freshmen Logan Reilly and Adam Evrett.

Reilly and Evrett attribute teamwork to being their biggest priority as they finish the season.

“It comes down to playing with each other,” Evrett said.

Reilly finished the match with three goals and Evrett finished with one goal.
