Men's Water Polo Back in Pool

Aug. 17, 2017

WASHINGTON - George Washington men’s water polo returned to the Charles E. Smith Center Pool on Thursday morning for its first practice under head coach Barry King.

The Colonials are hoping to build off a 2016 season that closed with a runner-up finish at the MAWPC Championship and a No. 15 ranking in the Collegiate Water Polo Association national poll.

King and his new squad have a little more than three weeks to get ready for the Sept. 2 season opener at Navy. ( View the full schedule here.)

“We’re going to tend to fitness quite a bit to make sure we’re in a position where we can play 28 minutes,” said King, whose hire was announced July 31. “We’re going to fine-tune some things in terms of the counter-attack and the power play, but for the most part, it’s going to be about fitness as we get ready to start our season.”
