GIG HARBOR —The Spartan boys water polo team is off to an impressive season start. Currently standing at 4-1 for the season and 3-0 in league play, the boys are making a name for themselves.

Favoring the use of a relentless offense and explosive early game play, the Spartans are getting better every match.

In their most recent match they continued to ride the wave of success on the road and into their next league game on Monday, Sept. 23 at Peninsula High School. The final score was 13-8 Bainbridge.

“In both games [Sept. 21 and Sept. 23] senior Rory Gallivan along with sophomore Conner Vacca anchored our defense with a combined 15 steals,” said Spartan Head Coach Jacob Millican.

“Rory also played excellent offense on the other side of the ball in his role as a utility player. Sophomore Alejandro Santiago has found his offensive groove, showing himself to be our most explosive and active driver. Between them, the pair scored nine goals and made seven assists over the two games,” he said.
