Water Polo Claims CCS Title in Decisive Win Over M-A

Posted: November 14, 2016

The Bellarmine varsity water polo team claimed the Central Coast Section (CCS) Division 1 championship for the second time in as many years, with a decisive 12-2 win over Menlo-Atherton on Saturday, November 12.

The Bells shut out the Bears in the first and fourth quarters, with senior goalkeeper Anthony Rethans turning in 14 saves. Senior captain Phillip Wang lead the Bells in scoring with five goals during the match-up. Sophomores Dominick Kirk and Nicky Fontes and junior Thomas Rogers each contributed one goal, and seniors Kyle McKim and Aaron White stepped in with two goals apiece.

Head coach Colin Mello commented "(The team) is stoked. We graduated 12 seniors (last year) and four or five of them went on to play in college, so there were a lot of unknown guys who were waiting their turn."

It's safe to say Saturday was their turn. Go Bells!
