Men's Water Polo

Author: Club Sports

This weekend, the Men's Water Polo team played three games and came out with three victories.

In their first game of the weekend, ND Men's Water Polo team faced off against former players from the Notre Dame squad.  With players representing classes ranging from the 1980s to 2013, the Alumni Team had a very diverse pool of talent.  Although the alumni team gave ND a slight scare in the beginning, Notre Dame pulled away and won easily in a 17-9 victory.

In a rematch of the conference championship game, Notre Dame turned the tide against the Ohio State University Buckeyes and pulled out a difficult 10-8 victory.  With captain Dolff Hanke and Geno Freeman leading the way, the Fighting Irish were able to withstand a comeback from OSU and pull away in the fourth quarter.

In its final game and the last game for Notre Dame's seniors, the Fighting Irish finished off the weekend with a 10-7 victory against the Scots of Monmouth.  Again, leading scorer Dolff Hanke pulled the Irish into a safe lead, and the defense of the team kept Monmouth at bay.
