Re: Cal State Fullerton

Did Fullerton have polo in the past and drop it, or is this a totally new program?

Re: Men's Senior National Team Summer Training Camp Invites

100 percent speculation, would Flacks bring Shipman to Stanford? Not sure about this. But what I am curious about is whether there will be a shift in where HW guys go to college to play water polo with Flacks now at Stanford. Just based off of memory, so I might be wrong, only 2 HW guys have gone t...

Re: Class of 2022 commits

Seems like a great year for some quality players to trickle down to the non-big 4 schools right?……..Right?!?!?

Tanner Pulice didn’t play for UCLA at Fisher Cup. Wonder if he was nursing an injury or something and wanted to be healthy for the NT training?


Pulice and Shipman have both announced they are leaving UCLA.


Where to?

Re: Men's Senior National Team Summer Training Camp Invites

Some thoughts of mine after seeing the roster: I get Cupido and Hooper wanting to have a career outside of water polo and a coach wanting to keep them around because they’re talented. But there’s something somewhat deflating about guys missing training and World Championships to do their own thing ...

Re: 16U boys JO's predictions

Nobody really cares who "wins JO"S 16 's Jo's except for Vanguard Aquatics and Socal. 16's is everything for these two clubs... which I find laughable for obvious reasons that I've said for many years. I guess it's good for business for both clubs..,though. Unfortunately, Sasa and HB are ...

Re: Coaching Carousel

What advantage does ASU have over say a UCI? Klatt is an excellent coach, an Olympian, and Nat'l team assistant and he hasn't been able to accomplish this; in part because the top kids domestically thumb their nose at anything not big-3. Also Arizona doesn't have HS polo and their path to NCAA's th...

Re: 2021-22 Cutino Award Finalists

Nikolaos Papanikolaou, Nik Porter, and Nicolas Saveljic are the three Cutino Award finalists for 2021-22. I'm surprised Saveljic made the list. He had a better year in 2020 than he did in 2021. In 2021, he wasn't named a 1st team All-American by the MPSF or the ACWPC. I would have selected Jack Dee...

Re: Predictions for 2022

I noticed looking at the Fisher Cup rosters that there is a Roberto Valera playing for LAACWP this weekend. Isn’t he one of the Spaniards from this past seasons Cal team? Does it mean anything eligibility wise that he’s playing for LAACWP? In spite of their newly created million dollar coach slush ...

I think he will be a good hire for HW. He certainly has the work ethic having assisted Wright for a couple years. Hopefully this is something he wants to do long term and ends up being a HR.

Re: Harvard Westlake

Did Corso not coach at Harvard Westlake ? Have they never been contenders until Flacks ? Of course, but I am sure that you already knew the answer. In particular, Corso was Peter Hudnut's coach at Harvard-Westlake when Peter's father was the headmaster there. Also the late great Jim Toring and of c...

Re: Cutino Award for 2022

For those picking Maddie, how connected do you think that is to her performance at NCAAs or do you think it’s a guarantee even with an underwhelming performance by UCLA? For example, what do you think would happen if UCLA loses to UC Irvine or wins that game and loses in the match for 3rd place? I ...

Re: Cutino Award for 2022

Anyone have thoughts on who the Cutino Award will go to and what implications the NCAA tournament could have on candidates? I would also be interested if anyone knows how the selection process for the Cutino works. I was surprised at the number of times that the MPSF player of the year and the Cuti...

I would rank them in that order. As I said after Flacks resigned, they should grab Grover
