This week I am joined by head coach of the Exeter Union High School Monarchs girls water polo team Patrick Hendricks and his star player Ashely Howell.
We discuss what last year was like when the Monarchs won their first league championship in the sport since 1995.
We’ll also talk about how the team is taking the pressure of entering this season as defending champions and going 3-1 against a string of potential D-II playoff contenders. As well as what it was like for Ashley Howell to compete with her club team at the Junior Olympics this last summer and how coach Hendricks uses his coaching style to help his players.
All that and much more on this weeks edition of the Sportspeak Podcast.
