State Water Polo
History was made at Fenwick High School at both the boys and girls water polo state tournaments on Saturday. On the boys’ side, Neuqua Valley placed at state for the first time in program history by defeating Lincoln-Way East in the third place match. After falling to eventual state champion, Stevenson, in the semifinals, the Wildcats took home the third place trophy after a thrilling 14-13 victory.
Later that night, the Naperville North girls completed an amazing season, dominating Stevenson by the score of 15-6 to win the state championship. It’s the first water polo state title for the Huskies, who finished the year with a flawless 29-0 record. Congratulations to both teams on your historic achievements!
