The Kimball High girls water polo team matched its accomplishments in competition this year with the players’ hard work in the classroom.

On Wednesday, the Sac-Joaquin Section announced that the Jaguars had the highest academic achievement out of all water polo teams in the section, with the 11 girls on the team averaging a 3.72 GPA. That’s in addition to the team’s 16-5 record, fifth consecutive trip to the Sac-Joaquin Section Division 3 championship game and spot in the state tournament.

The section released its list of the top five academic teams in each fall sport.
