Lake Oswego girls polo aiming for state berth in '17
The Lakers are ready, willing and able.
The Lake Oswego girls water polo team is ready to compete, willing to work and able — the Lakers hope — to reach the state tournament in 2017.
"We've got a weird mix of underclassmen and seniors, but we're looking to get to state even though we don't expect to win everything," said Lake Oswego coach Justine Kilsby.
This year's version of the Lakers will be led by senior captains Jacqueline Carman (a first-team all-Three Rivers League selection a year ago) and senior goalie Marla Mirho (a second-team pick in '16).
"They are the main coordinators in the pool, with Jackie calling the shots and running the show in the pool," Kilsby said. "They're our top two contenders for all-league honors this year."
The Lakers will also call on seniors Annaliese LaCount and Anna Rodgers to run the team's double-center offense. The rest of the team's varsity roster will include junior Kamilla Chmarny, freshman Madi Calhoun, junior Anna Bouchard, sophomore Jackie Loverin, sophomore Makayla Burwell, junior Skye McCullough and sophomore Katie Freeman.
Kilsby added that she expects Newberg to again be the top contender for the 2017 TRL title.
