Men’s water polo
With the season opener just a goal away, Riverside City College men’s water polo team looks toward a fresh start.
“We just finished hell week with all new leaders,” head coach Jason Northcott said. “Our main focus was building connections and conditioning.”
The RCC men finished overall last season 9-8 and 5-3 in conference.
“A successful season is not based on wins and losses,” Northcott said. “But operating as a team, setting goals and growing as a person.”
This season the Tigers’ goals are taking it one game at a time, their first set of games will be against Ventura and Citrus Colleges on Sept. 5 at the Golden West Invitational Tournament.
Women’s water polo
With a loss to end their 2013 season against the Golden West Rustlers, 12-11, in the 2013 CCCAA Water Polo State Championship game, Riverside City College looks to improve with a mix of new faces and several returning players.
All-Americans returning this season include: Nikki Bell, Alia McMorris and Melissa Woody.
