BAINBRIDGE – The Bainbridge High School varsity boys water polo team defeated the visitors from Bellevue 21-8 Tuesday, Sept. 5 in their first match of the season.
The contest was originally slated to be held at Bellevue, but the pool there is outdoors, BHS Head Coach Kristin Gellert said, and was relocated to Bainbridge’s indoor aquatic center because of poor air quality.
Spartan cocaptian Sam Kapel led the scoring efforts Tuesday, finishing the match with six.
Miles Hogger put up four throughout the match. Gabe Nathan had three, as did Max Eyrich.
Thomas Defware scored two goals, and Marshall Whittlesey, Sam Chapman and Clay Jablonski each scored one.
The Spartans are set to play on the road for their next six matches, finally coming home to play host to Gig Harbor at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26.
