DIVISION PLACEMENT FOR LCHS GIRLS
For the 2016-17 school year the LCHS girls water polo team will compete in Div. 2. We previously were in Div. 5, but there is a new system this year for the playoff divisions. Instead of assigning divisions by league (e.g., all Rio Hondo League teams were in Div. 5), starting this year the divisions are assigned according to each team's power ranking, which is based on its record the past two years. Temple City has also been assigned to Div. 2, while Monrovia and South Pasadena are in Div. 4, and San Marino is in Div. 6. (Crescenta Valley is in Div. 2, Flintridge Sacred Heart is in Div. 5, and Flintridge Prep is in Div. 6.) Div. 2 has 19 schools, 16 of which will go to the playoffs. Of those 19 schools, the highest power rankings are those of Palm Desert and ML King, while CV is 8th highest, LCHS is 14th highest and TC is 15th highest.
LCHS SEASONS WILL START EARLIER NEXT YEAR
Next school year the water polo seasons will start a week earlier due to the addition of Southern California playoffs following CIF playoffs. In 2017-18 the first game can be as early as Aug. 21. As a consequence, fall practice may start on Mon. July 31, two weeks before the first day of school, so please plan your summer vacations with that in mind (summer school ends July 12).
For Club games, players wear 1) a Club swimsuit imprinted with "LCWP," and 2) a white team polo shirt personalized with the player's last name.
For LCHS games, players wear 1) a LCHS swimsuit imprinted with "LC," 2) a team polo shirt, and 3) team shorts. Note that CIF rules prohibit wearing a club suit in a high school game.
