John Muir High School’s new water polo team defeated Hemet High School to win the CIF division six championship 17 to 16.
By Scott Phelps
Pasadena’s John Muir High School’s boys’ water polo team won a thrilling CIF Division 6 championship water polo game on November 12 at the Woolley Aquatics Center in Irvine.
Muir prevailed 17-16 when they scored a goal literally as time expired. The outcome could not have been closer as the winning goal barely crossed the goal line.
Muir was cheered on by a strong supportive group of fans. The group included many old time Muir players and their old coach, Walt Culbertson, who built the program decades ago.
This was the first boy’s water polo team Muir has had in 16 years. Huge congratulations to Coach Micol Issa and assistants and the players! Muir principal Lawton Gray and Muir teacher Alfredo Resendiz joined Coach Issa in a celebratory jump in the pool!
