Varsity Mens Water Polo
Stanford Red 18U 15, Regency 11
Date of competition: Tuesday, August 2, 2011
The Stanford Water Polo Club's Red 18U boys' team avenged its only loss of the tournament and earned a gold medal in the Platinum Division by upending Regency, 15-11, in a championship match of the 2011 SwimOutlet.com Junior Olympics in Orange County on Tuesday night. Stanford, coached by Brian Kreutzkamp from Sacred Heart Prep, finished 7-1 in the four-day event.
Stanford had dropped a 9-6 decision to Regency (primarily Mater Dei High) on Monday and the Orange County team was heavily favored once again. Stanford, with division MVP Colin Mulcahy tossing in key goals, overcame its host and won the Stanford Water Polo Club's first JO gold medal since the Red 16U squad took first in 2008. Not too surprisingly, a handful of this 2011 team played on the '08 squad, as well.
