Coached by Nick Maxwell and Wil Jackson, the Shorewood Boys’ Water Polo team is making its very first appearance at the State Championships this weekend at Curtis High School. Just to qualify for the playoffs, the boys had to beat Newport High School in double overtime. Then to advance on to State, they won with a “golden goal” in the third overtime period against Kentridge High School and beat Auburn Mountainview this past weekend.

To add to the excitement, this is the first time in the history of the current playoff format that four teams from the same division (Bellevue, Mercer Island, Roosevelt, and Shorewood High Schools) have swept all four state tournament berths at one of the two Regional Tournaments.

Shorewood plays Thursday night at 5:00pm at Curtis High School in Tacoma; the Friday and Saturday schedule is determined by wins and losses. For an updated schedule and results, visit the Enumclaw Water Polo blog.

The team is led by six seniors, many of whom have played together for 10+ years with the Innis Arden Water Polo Club. Coach Nick Maxwell is both a founding member of the Innis Arden Water Polo Club and a former Shorewood Water Polo player.
