M-A, SHP alums battle for national men's water polo titles

Stanford freshman Larsen Weigle, who scored 14 goals this season, wasn't the only former Sacred Heart Prep standout playing for a NCAA men's water polo title and Nik Caryotakis wasn't the only former Menlo-Atherton standout on a team playing for a national title.

Caryotakis scored three goals on the season, including a pair in a September game against Johns Hopkins, a Division III semifinalist.

SHP grad Andrew Churukian scored six goals for Stanford, including twice against Pacific in October.

(Stanford's Walker Seymour, also a SHP alum, used his redshirt season this year).

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps sophomore goalie Noah Smith, a former M-A standout, put on a clinic in the inagural Division III national championship over the weekend, recording 15 saves in the Stags' victory over Johns Hopkins in the national semifinal and stopping 13 shots in Whittier's 5-3 victory over C-M-S in the title game.
