How water polo coaches at USC and UCLA are handling overlapping seasons

Adam Wright tells his teams “the only way is through.” The UCLA men’s and women’s water polo head coach usually means success comes only through work, effort or time. Last month, it meant going through a snow storm.

After the men’s team opened its season at a tournament in Berkeley on Jan. 23-24, the team bus bound for Los Angeles was rerouted when a storm closed Interstate 5 at the Grapevine. The Bruins, unable to fly because of COVID-19 protocols, left at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday and didn’t get back to campus until 5:30 a.
