Fillmore Flashes at Villanova for a water polo match.
Fillmore Flashes at Villanova for a water polo match.

October 12th was our last day of our season. The Fillmore High School Inaugural Boys water polo team successfully completed 3 High School matches. The games were played against Carpentaria, Villanova and Nordoff. Our 18 young men represented Fillmore Athletics with heart, dedication and pride. I watched these young men progress as athletes and grow together as a team.

A memoir written by our team Captain Luke Myers "It was a very close game, but they got us. Even if this is our second and LAST game for the season, it's been the most fun I've had in a team sport. Fillmore's VERY FIRST boys water polo team. We made history... We never had a dull moment or negative vibes. Ms Burns has showed us the utmost love and support despite every single obstacle that has slowed us down. We've overcome and have paved the way for future seasons of improvement and excitement. Thank you to this amazing brotherhood of respectable and loving guys, and even for everyone that couldn't make it in their schedule as we progressed. Every single person who has contributed to this team in any way is amazing and FHS will never be the same now. Oh... And today's score is 1-30, but our point counts as a lot."

Our team will be playing in a Open Entry Southern California Boys Water Polo Tournament in Chino Valley on Friday October 14th and 15th 2016. GOOD LUCK FILLMORE HIGH SCHOOL BOYS WATER POLO TEAM.

Thank you for this opportunity, it has been an amazing experience.

St. Bonaventure high school varsity was the Fillmore Flashes opponent on the thirteenth of October, 2016. The Fillmore Flashes traveled to the tennis courts of Ventura College to play their second to last match of the season. Playing with a slight wind coming off the coast, our girls did their best and played hard. "Lizzie" Castaneda, Fillmore's number two singles player fought through endless rallies giving the St. Bonaventure girls a "run for their money." Castaneda, along with our number one player Michaela Boniti, both defeated St. Bonaventure's Mel Monlleo 6-2, and 6-4, Castaneda's win being the later score. The number one doubles team for Fillmore, Haley Martinez and Ivette Huerta, defeated St. Bonaventure's number three doubles team with a proud score of 6-1. Yes, Martinez and Huerta were smiling and happy to score a point for the team leaving the final score Fillmore 3, St. Bonaventure 15. I can't express enough times during this season how proud I am of the tennis team this year. Good job to team members Michaela, Elizabeth, Mariah, Haley, Ivette, Karime, Julissa, Adanari, and Breana! It is nice to announce the opposing teams consistently express well wishes to our team as we are "back in the swing of things" in Fillmore. Tennis pal, Sara Hansen reminded me many years ago about the importance of women being involved in sports, as women were not allowed to participate at one time. I agree! Thanks Sara. We have one final match against Laguna Blanca on October 25, at 3 p.m. at Laguna Blanca. Go Team!

On October 4, it was Fillmore vs. Santa Paula J.V. team at Santa Paula high school. Fillmore Flashes' number one and two players Michaela Boniti and Lizzie Castaneda won all six of their round robin matches scoring six of the seven points for the entire team. Both players are consistently steady and strong players playing singles for the Flashes. Doubles team Karime Renteria and Adanari Rosales also scored a point for the Fillmore Flashes wining one doubles match in a tiebreaker 7-6. Because the city of Fillmore only has two courts, the team plays all of the tennis matches away on the opponent's campus making it difficult for parents to watch their girls play. Despite this hurdle, the Flashes are having a good year as they continue to improve. As a final note, during the Santa Paula match, I especially noticed my doubles player Hayley Martinez executing numerous winning shots showing her knowledge for the game on the rise. Good job team! On October 10, we will be playing against Carpinteria and then against St. Bonaventure on October 13. The St. Bonaventure match will be played at the Ventura College courts.

Today, October 10, we played against Carpinteria for the second time this season losing with a score of 1-17. Lizzie Castaneda won one of her three tough matches today. Lizzie in consistent on the court and continues to score points for the team. As I always say, the girls are improving their tennis game every time they get out there during practice or during a match against an opposing team. It is wonderful to see the girls from Fillmore becoming successful at their first year playing this sport. Two matches are left in the season with St. Bonaventure and Laguna Blanca. As a new coach this year, I am hoping the city of Fillmore sponsors a tennis clinic to create new players for the future. I know there a kids and adults alike in Fillmore anxious to learn the sport.
