Men’s water polo takes 5th at States

By Ben Fields '15

Hamilton hosted the CWPA New York State Water Polo Tournament over the weekend. In their three games, the team faced West Point, Columbia and Syracuse. The Conts fell to West Point 4-11, while Army went on to finish third in the tournament. In their next game, the team lost to Columbia, a perenial contender for the championship. On Sunday, Hamilton had a rematch with Syracuse after losing a close game to them earlier in the season. This time though, the Conts outplayed Syracuse in a close game, winning 11-10.

Although it was a dissapointing finish for a team that had gone to Nationals for the last three years, they are looking forward to next year. Hamilton finished with a 4-7 record, but was second among the division three teams in the league.

Highlights for the team this season included a close game against West Point during the season in which Hamilton was leading until the final quarter, and a close victory against rival team NYU at West Point during their final tournament.
