Water Polo spring season in full swing
The club water polo team is back in action for the Spring 2012 semester. After a short break during the swim season, water polo kicked it off with their first game against the University of Chicago on Sunday, April 1 with a victory of 15 to 8. Overall the match went very well with a lot of good plays, but the team is still a bit rusty. Top scorers in the game were Matt O’Rourke, Igor Gryniv, Billy Bafia and Tomasz Chojnacki with 5, 4, 2 and 2 goals respectively.
The game went very well with new comers Brian Shaw, Roman Gallais, Nate Hurst and Johnny Broek really making an effort in the water. Johnny continues his water polo playing with us after graduating and playing at the University of Iowa. He has brought a tremendous amount of knowledge and skill to the rest of the team. Brian and Nate now continue to enjoy the sport on the club team after many years of playing in high school. Roman, on the other hand, has never played the game before and has caught on quickly these past few weeks proving himself as a dedicated member.
The water polo team’s next game is on Sunday, April 15 at 3:00 p.m. against the Southwest Master’s Team and Sunday, April 22 at 3:00 p.m. also against the Southwest Master’s Team. The team meets for practices Tuesday and Thursday nights from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. Anyone is welcome to come and try it out.
