Park City Water Polo Club celebrates its senior class
Park City Water Polo celebrated its seniors last Wednesday night before a game against Brighton. Kiyan Mohebbizadeh, Jessica Beyer, Brynn Petty and Waverly Golden were recognized and given their senior gifts. Park City Water Polo is proud to produce a program that allows players to continue their sport of choice at the next level. Kiyan Mohebbizadeh was recruited by University of California Irvine and will join their squad which is top five in the country. Jessica Beyer will be going to Scripps University in Pomona, California, where she will also be playing polo. Lastly, Waverly Golden is going Santa Barbara Community College where she has committed to join their water polo club.
Both the varsity girls and varsity boys teams earned victories against Victory at the last home game of the season. That game ended the regular season and both teams now set their eyes on the state championships next weekend, where the boys varsity team is seeded No. 1 and the girls varsity team is seeded No. 3.
It was a fantastic season for the boys varsity team so far with a record of 20-2. Their only losses were to Kearns, who beat Park City in the first two meetings. However, Park City went on to win the third and fourth matchups. Park City played Kearns in the finals of the summer games in Cedar City on April 27 to take the gold. The Miners boys team will get one more shot to take down Kearns when it travels to the Kearns Oquirrh Park Fitness Center for the state playoffs, where the two teams will most likely meet in the finals. To win the state championship Park City will need to run the table and win five straight games. The Miners’ first playoff game starts Thursday May 16 at 6:50 p.m.
The Park City High School girls golf team took second in the Class 4A state championship tournament on Thursday. It was the team’s fifth consecutive time as runner-up.
