Canyon Crest Academy’s Boys’ Water Polo team, reigning Valley League champions, will begin the 2012 season as part of the Palomar League. Originally from Orange County, new Head Coach Zach Wordes, who played water polo for UC Davis during his college career and also coaches for the Del Mar Water Polo club program, looks forward to competing with the best this year. “I’m excited to get things started,” he said at a team meet-and-greet.

Assisted by coaches Alden Hozouri (UCSD), Jessica Tran (UCSD), and Jenny Waters (SDSU), Wordes stressed to the team that “Academics always come first,” noting, “It’s a privilege to be a student-athlete.” On a personal level, Coach Wordes prides himself on responding to player and parent communication within 24 hours and encourages the boys to share his passion for reliability and consistency. “Water polo teaches discipline and responsibility,” he says. “If you want to win, it comes down to the fundamentals.”

In anticipation of upcoming league games, as well as the Sept. 6-8 Poway Invite, Wordes says, “I want CCA to be known as the team that keeps our mouths shut, plays hard, and wins.”
