The Costa Girls Water Polo program had a demanding schedule as the Division 1 Varsity team came into the Bay League Carousel tournament on Tuesday 2/1 undefeated 6-0. Bailey Tibbetts, the veteran Senior Goalie, had one of her best games fiercely preventing the opponents from scoring. The team played aggressive defense, beating Peninsula with the final score of 12-6, with 8 goals for Julia Almendariz.
The final game against Santa Monica on Thursday 2/3 was a nail biter right to the end. Tibbetts finished with 18 saves the entire game. It was a defensive battle between the two teams with Costa missing multiple goal attempts, including four penalty shots, trailing Santa Monica 5-3 after the third quarter. It was a barn burner and the Varsity ladies were on fire in the last quarter with Gwendolyn Pidd scoring off a rebound then a penalty shot, tying up the game at 6-6. With 22 seconds left, Pidd scored on an assist from Bella Fasano to tie up the game at 7-7. With the close score and the crowd on their feet, Santa Monica missed a goal, sending the game into over time. After a scoreless first three minutes in overtime, Costa broke through on Bella Blackman’s go-ahead goal from point-bank range at the 1:57 mark, making it her second goal of the game then she forced a turnover in OT. Gwendolyn Pidd scored another goal, securing the win 9-8. Costa Girls Water Polo remains undefeated as 2022 Bay League Champions!

The Mira Costa Boys Water Polo (MCBWP) is designed to give athletes the best possible atmosphere to improve, achieve goals, and become the best player they possibly can be. Along the way they will experience customs and traditions that will build friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
The MCBWP team is coached by Jon Reichardt and over the years his teams have consistently won Bay League and CIF titles. MCBWP competes in Division 1 level and is comprised of three teams; Varsity, JV and Frosh/Soph.
Mira Costa Boys Water Polo is a program at Mira Costa that allows students in every grade to compete and take their skills to the next level. Boys Water Polo is one of the most competitive sports programs at Mira Costa, competing at the CIF Division 1 level and finishing at or near the top of Bay League year after year. Supported by engaging coaches and hard-working parent volunteers, Boys Water Polo thrives because of donations from our families and the generosity of our community.
MBUSD pays for our Head Coach and our three assistant coaches. Your donation will fund the Coaches’ off and in season stipends, team tournament fees, special events, supplies, equipment, awards, and the other costs of running the program.
In order to meet the Boys Water Polo program costs, we are suggesting a donation of $400 per athlete/ participant.
We understand that not everyone is in a position to give this amount, and that others can give more. We also understand that if Boys Water Polo is your athlete’s second, or even third, sport, you have already been asked to donate to other booster clubs. Unfortunately, Boys Water Polo does not receive any of the money donated to those other programs. Your donation in no way affects your athlete’s ability to participate in Boys Water Polo. However, we would very much appreciate your donation of any amount to help us continue to run the program.
To donate on-line, go to www.mbxfoundation.org and select “Booster Clubs.” From the drop- down menu, select “Clubs” and then select Boys Water Polo, adding your son as the participant in the activity. Click the desired donation button from the right side of the page. MBX utilizes an online donation platform and this system recognizes your email address which will allow you to keep track of donations for tax purposes.
Your tax receipt will be provided directly from the Boys Water Polo program. MBX accepts company matching gifts. Please contact Kathy Duffy for additional information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
