Since joining Andover Girls Water Polo last year as a new Lower, Sveva Rosati ’19 has brought experience and a motivating passion for the game to the team dynamic. Rosati started playing water polo in sixth grade, and has since developed into a dedicated player with extensive knowledge of the game.
Rosati’s teammates credit her tenacity, endurance, and inclusivity for her success.
“The team is super fun. It’s a group of very tight-knit girls,” said Rosati. “Everyone really brings their A-game and has really good attitudes, and they all work super hard in practice. They’re people you can turn to after a bad day, and they’re people who all try their best.”
Co-Captain Emma Chatson ’18 wrote in an email to The Phillipian, “With Sveva’s previous water polo experience, her presence on the team was strong… Her knowledge of the sport, along with her spirited athleticism, propelled the team into a great season. Sveva is a fierce player and a fierce friend. She offers everyone encouragement during practices and games. I was impressed by Sveva’s composure during games last year. She was always calm and collected, whether we were winning or losing.”
With the team’s newly added talent and depth, Rosati is hopeful for the team’s success this season.
Rosati said, “I’m excited to just see how all of our different skills come together. I hope we can make it to New Englands and, hopefully, crush Greenwich Academy. I just think we’re going to be a really strong force this season. Our captains, Emma and Eastlyn [Frankel ’18], are great leaders, and they’re going to take us far. There is a lot of passion and energy on the team.”
