The Men’s Water Polo team continued a recent trend of successful weekends with victory in another scrimmage and volunteering experience alongside the BU Women’s Water Polo team.
On Friday, October 3rd, BU hosted Northeastern University for a friendly scrimmage at BU’s FitRec Center. Highlights include: 5 goals for graduate student Curtis Hon, 4 goals netted by freshman Blake Hallisey, and a hat trick (3 goals) from senior George Skoufalos. A standout 2nd quarter featuring 4 blocks and an assist from senior goalie Ron Glandian helped the Terriers forge a lead, and a combined team effort from everyone on the squad saw the Terriers through to victory. Final score: Boston University 18 – Northeastern University 13.
On Saturday, October 4th, members of the club teamed up with counterparts from the women’s team to cheer on and volunteer at the 3rd Annual Run Like an Antelope 5K, benefitting Metastatic Breast Cancer Research conducted at UMASS Medical School. The early drive out to Worcester, MA was worth it, as everyone involved had a good time supporting a great cause.
