Although Ramona High School’s girls water polo team had a 1-9 Palomar League record and a 15-16 overall mark, Palomar League coaches recognized four Ramona players with all-league status.
Bri Hogervorst was selected to the league’s second team. The third team included Tiffany Larson, and Paulina Bernd and Rachel Hogervorst received honorable mention.
“It’s good for us,” Coach Donnie Williams said. “It’s a tough league.”
Hogervorst was considered for the first team and was the final elimination from the top level.
“We tried to get Bri on the first team. She was very close,” Williams said. “Not finishing high enough in league kind of hurts you.”
Hogervorst is a senior.
“She played well and strong all year,” Williams said. “Bri worked hard all year long to make herself as good as possible, and it showed.”
Larson, who is Ramona’s goalkeeper, is a junior.
“She had some good games this year,” Williams said. “I expect her to be right there for the top, for the goalie of the year, next year.”
Rachel Hogervorst is a junior, and Bernd is a sophomore.
“That’s good for them. They’ll continue to grow,” Williams said of their honorable mention status. “Both Rachel and Paulina worked hard this year with a good work ethic.”
