Win 18-1

Water Polo

A Team vs Wildcat B

Senior Night

The Knights bounced back from their first defeat of the season with a great win on senior night! Prior to the opening whistle, we celebrated the career of Andrew Jenkins who has played for four years. He has made the All-Star team the last three years and been selected to All-State. Last year, he was named the league MVP. He has also earned a Scholastic Athlete Award from the American Water Polo Association. Andrew now has 335 goals and 47 assists! Congratulations to Andrew!

The game opened with the Wildcats swimming fast and passing the ball quickly trying to get us off balance. It created some marking problems early, but the Knights settled down and got things under control. The first quarter was back and forth with the Knights holding a 2-1 lead after one. The next three quarters, Harris and the defense of John, Alan, Harrison, Barrett, and Carter, shut them out while we went on a scoring frenzy scoring 11 times! Goals came from the following players:

Andrew-7 goals

Jackson-3 goals, 1 assist

John-2 goals

Dillon-3 goals

Alan-1 goal, 1 assist

Carter-1 goal, 1 assist

Barrett-1 assist

Harris-7 assists

The final score was 18-1 and a great way to close the regular season. The Knights stand at 11-1 for the regular season and go into the State Tournament next weekend as the number 2 seed! Thanks for such great fan support yesterday!

Go Knights!
