MONTEBELLO – With a 6-4 victory over Riverside Poly on Feb. 25, the Schurr girls water polo team was crowned CIF-Southern Section Division 2 champions, the first such triumph in the school’s history.
And for Jassmine Kezman, a senior on the team who lives in Monterey Park, winning the title meant the Spartans could successfully overcome all of their challenges.
“It was unbelievable,” said Kezman, who is planning on attending the University of La Verne in the fall and studying kinesiology. “For me personally, my heart was racing. It was a hectic day. There was a lot of negativity, people saying that we can’t do it. But we believed in our team and we were able to step up.”
