Water Polo / J.V. Boys’
Suffield's junior varsity athletics teams welcome students of all ability levels to experience the excitement and challenge of interscholastic engagement. The goals at this level of sport are focused on amplifying transferable skills, such as teamwork and communication, exposing students to new and different extracurricular opportunities, and enhancing both personal and social growth through participation in team-based competition.
It was a beautiful sunny day in Deerfield, Massachusetts and our JV polo boys were ready to spend it inside. After learning some good game time lessons and how to work together in their first match-up against Eaglebrook last week, our athletes felt a newfound sense of poise and confidence heading into this game against the competitive Big Green.
Juniors Alex Cha and Shalin Patel continue to impress in their rookie season, playing strong defense and moving the ball up the pool with speed and determination. Cha had a spectacular second half and was able to net three goals.
Sophomores Aidan Ryder and Herman Troshin held strong in the set position throughout the game. With the help and hard work of their teammates, Troshin was able to put up four goals while in the set position and Ryder earned and impressive six. JV leaders Haruka Kajiwara and Max Giugliano were each able to score goals of their own, bringing the final score to 15-7.
