Water polo to play first district game against Flower Mound Sept. 1

Sophomore Bogdan Slavu blocks the ball against Dallas Jesuit on Aug. 26 at the Dallas Jesuit Aquatic Center. The team participated in the Scot/Rangers Tournament and played Foster, then played Jesuit once more.

The water polo team will play its first district game against Flower Mound at the LISD Eastside Aquatic Center on Sept. 1 at 5:30 p.m.

“It’s going to be a very tough game, but I think we will come out on top,” sophomore Kane Macklin said. “We’ve played them before districts and it was a blowout game.”

In the team’s first game against Flower Mound this year, Hebron lost 4-14. In the second game, the Hawks won 10-8. In the last game, the Hawks won 20-5.

“I feel like a lot of our players maybe didn’t push themselves to their full potential [against Flower Mound,] but now we’re doing better,” senior Burk Wald said.

To prepare for upcoming games, the team has been practicing and playing against Dallas Jesuit and Foster. They recently participated in the Scots/Rangers Tournament and beat Flower Mound 20-5.

“We have a better team dynamic [this year] and we also have more room to grow because we are a really young team,” Wald said.

Macklin said that Flower Mound has been Hebron’s biggest rival for a while now.

“We have been working on our teamwork, communication and just overall gameplay,” Macklin said. “I really think we can beat Flower Mound and any other team we go against.”

Following the Sept. 1 game, water polo has its next match on Sept. 5 against South Grand Prairie. With more underclassmen this year, Wald hopes to get into state this year.

“Flower Mound is our biggest competitor and we keep swapping wins,” said senior Brock Alvey. “But I think this might be the year we fully beat them”
