PREP NOTES . . . Sacred Heart Prep senior Kyle Koenig has committed to play water polo for the U.S. Naval Academy next fall. Koenig was an All-Central Coast Section Division II selection this past fall and was an honorable mention choice in 2010. He also was a first-team selection for the West Catholic Athletic League as a junior and senior.

"I am both honored and excited to represent the Naval Academy and my country next fall," Koenig said. "I know that Coach Schofield will help me become the best athlete I can be and that the Naval Academy will provide me with one of the best academic environments in the country. It has always been my dream to play water polo in college in represent my country at the same time." . . .
