This past weekend the varsity men’s water polo team placed 7th out of 16 teams at the S&R SoCal invitational in Irvine. On Friday the Mats kicked off the weekend right defeating Harvard-Westlake 11-8  in the first round. In their second game of the day the Mats suffered a tough loss to Newport 13-7.

The next morning the boys failed to pull it together, losing the third game to Corona Del Mar 4-1. Despite their losses, the Mats came back to win their final game against Coronado 12-6 to clench 7th place.

Once again, Captains Jack Fellner ‘13 and Charlie Wiser ‘13 led the team in goals.

“Although we didn’t place as high as we wanted to we played some tough physical teams and I think we improved as a team,” Tyler Kirchberg ‘14 said.

Come out tomorrow to watch the Mats take on the Las Lomas Knights at 6 p.m. at home.
