As the winter season of 2019 approaches, the Wesleyan fall sports are coming to an end. Each team has trained hard over the summer into the fall to complete a successful season that has made Wesleyan proud. Each team has shown dedication to their sport and the school by training rigorously to gain both victories and humbling experiences this fall. The outcome of each of these five sports has made this season one of Wesleyan’s best.
The water polo team has just ended their best season since 2015, with an impressive eight wins, eight losses and one tie out of their seventeen games. Coach Kevin Kadzis said success was achieved this season from commitment by the team to playing their unique style of water polo. Kadzis said their best game took place in September, when the team beat Collins Hill High School even though they were down one player, and it was “awesome to see our team work together and overcome the odds to beat a good team when we were at a disadvantage.” The season started right after school began in August and ended on Sept. 29, and Kadzis said seniors Connor Beaty, Will Miller, Jack Godfrey and Isaiah Erb were the team’s leaders. Kadzis said, “We couldn’t have had a non-losing season without these guys,” showing the enthusiasm and diligence of this season’s water polo team. Keep Reading
Amid the other fall sports, water polo has returned for their 2017 season. Winning one of their matches already, the team promises an exciting season. With a great track record for success, senior Grant Beaty predicted that they are “headed to the state championship.” The team has earned high praise in their past for their notable track record.
Starting off their season with one win out of their first six matches is highly impressive for a team that, due to time and venue restrictions, is only capable of limited practice. Senior Grant Beaty said they have games two to three times a week and practice “two to three times a year.” Coach Kevin Kadzis mentioned what the course of the season will entail and talked about what makes water polo the increasingly popular sport it is. There is a lot of buzz surrounding the distinguished team this season. “We have a pretty challenging schedule given the nature of club sport,” said Kadzis, “But I’m most interested in how we improve as individuals and how we improve to play together as a team.”
