Men’s water polo competed in the North/South challenge Sept. 15 and 16 in Cambridge, Mass. During the challenge, the Lakers dropped the first two games to St. Francis and Harvard, but bounced back to defeat Iona.
These losses were the first two of the season, brining the lakers to 6-2. The Lakers standout performance was from junior Garret Schoeman, who had a combined seven goals and 10 assists in three games.
“As a whole, we want to get to Easterns and bond as a brotherhood,” Schoeman said.
The slow start to the North/South challenge didn’t get the Lakers’ spirit down, according to Schoeman.
“We had a slow start, but there are a lot of new players. As time goes on we will get better, we can always improve,” Schoeman said.
The Lakers will remain persistent as the season continues.
