20 girls try out for water polo on first day

The first day of Fallbrook High School water polo tryouts saw 20 girls in the water.

“We certainly look to add anyone interested,” said Fallbrook varsity coach Bob Lamont. “We’d like to teach water polo to anybody who would like to show up.”

The turnout included five freshman.

“I can say I’m disappointed with the turnout,” Lamont said.

Unless Lamont adds participants, the Warriors will not be able to field varsity, junior varsity, and novice teams. The junior varsity and novice squads will likely be combined, with Sean Redmond and Ken Brower splitting the coaching duties. If Fallbrook is able to field three teams, Redmond will coach the novice group and Brower will coach the junior varsity.

“I’ve got a good squad. I hope to keep them focused,” Lamont said.

The players in the pool included five returning varsity players, three of whom were starters during the 2008-09 season. Other players were on lower-level teams last year.

“I’m very pleased with the quality of those that are moving up, and I think we’ll be fine. Time will tell,” Lamont said. “If they live up to their potential, they’re going to surprise a lot of people.”
