Spartans bounce back at tourney

SOUTH SALEM, ORE. - The Bainbridge boys water polo team took fifth place in the annual South Salem Tournament.

The Spartans won two of the four games they played.

“The best part of the tournament was the chance to play in a 25-meter, all-deep facility against some more physical Oregon teams,” said Spartan Head Coach Jacob Millican. “After two losses, the boys coalesced and cranked out two well-deserved wins.”

Sophomore sprinter Douglas Ortyn was singled out as a player who won several sprints and led the team in scoring during the fifth-place game.

“Power play conversions increased dramatically at the tournament,” Millican said. “I couldn’t be happier with the team as they go into the final stretch before State. They all played well.”
