Curtis sneaks to win in boys water polo

The visitors from Curtis High, widely considered front runners for the top spot at State, edged out the Bainbridge High School varsity water polo team Tuesday, Sept. 17 with a 12-9 win at the Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center.

It was the island squad’s third outing of the year, their third straight home match, and the loss left them with a 1-2 season record overall.

Three goals were scored by junior Gabe Nathan, the most of any single Spartan.

Nate Lapin, Harrison Villella, David Burton, Jacques Defawe, Thomas Defawe and Oskar Bannister each put up one apiece.

The Spartans will return home from battling Mercer Island on the road Thursday, Sept. 19 to host Auburn Riverside in a non-league match at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20.
