On Friday, August 14, the Rockford Men’s Varsity Water Polo team traveled to eastern Michigan to play in the Ann Arbor Pioneer Tournament. The Rams won all four games and the championship, beating Dexter 8-0, St. Charles (OH) 13-11, Ann Arbor Skyline 11-9, and Upper Arlington 8-6. Leaders in team stats for the weekend were seniors Sam Sikkema with 13 goals, Jake Vickery with 10 assists and 14 steals, and goalie Christian Williams with 23 saves.
Senior Captain Chad Greenberg shared his thoughts, “I’m proud of the guys going 4-0 this past weekend. Everybody had a role to play and got the job done. I am excited to see what the rest of the season brings.”
The next opportunities to see Rams Water Polo action will be the Rockford Varsity Invitational August 21 and 22 at Rockford High School. The Junior Varsity team will play their first games at a Jenison tournament this weekend, as well.
