The Performance of the Week for the week of September 9 goes to senior Miki Yomigida’s last-minute goal to lead the girl’s water polo to victory against the Whitney Wildcats.

Whitney’s girl’s varsity water polo team has defeated the Tigers for five years in a row now.

This time the Tigers came out on top with a final score of 6-5.

Roseville and Whitney were head to head with a close score throughout the whole game, only pulling out a lead in quintuple overtime.

Girls water polo pushed their way through the game and eventually senior Miki Yomogida scored the winning goal.

According to Yomigida, she recalls being excited to help led her team to victory and was excited about their great performance during the game.

“It was probably the most excited I’ve ever been to actually score,” Yomogida said. “We’ve had a hard time beating Whitney in the past before and it was a huge accomplishment for us to win.”

Girls water polo will play their next game against Del Oro at Del Oro on September 25.
