Fall Sports Updates: Boys’ Water Polo

Written by Tim Sun

Coming off of an 11-1 league record and league championship, boys’ water polo started their season strong with a win over Wilcox on Tuesday. The Titans return with much of last year’s squad; seniors Patrick Zhao and Quinn Hamilton lead the way and senior goalie Jackson Waschura anchors a formidable defense that held opponents seven goals per game last year. Hamilton believes that the team carries a mental edge into games. “[Our] strongest aspect is definitely our ability to grind and put in work,” he said.

Senior Patrick Zhao winds up to take a shot.

As the season gets under way, there are some growing pains, but Zhao is looking forward to watching his team develop. “We are still in the process of finding our identity—like play style and chemistry—but we have very solid guys all around,” he said. “I am excited to see us grow and get stronger, faster and smarter.”

Next Tuesday, the boys will face off against Paly at 3:30 p.m. in the Gunn pool to avenge their only league defeat of last year.
