Girls’ Water Polo Preview: Jordan Panthers

Jordan coach Kesley Schafer has a few returning seniors and some juniors back this year trying to help solidify the Panthers’ program.

Samantha Alvarado and Wendy Garcia will be the senior leaders at Jordan.

“We want them to be leaders in the pool and leverage their experience to help guide our younger athletes,” said Schafer. Kimberley Lopez, Genesis Mata, Ayodele Onasegun, and Juliana Caldera will be the team’s other top players.

“They’ve been working hard and really stepped up to be playmakers on both offense and defense,” said Schafer.
