2003 Men's Water Polo Outlook
Aug. 22, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The Colonials enter the 2003 season with high expectations after returning all of their starters from a squad that finished their 2002 campaign with three victories in a row. Head Coach Scott Reed will rely on the overall experience of his team to raise the Colonials to the next level, a Southern Championship, and a trip to the Eastern Championship to compete for the title.
The key to their success this season may lie in a balanced attack led by three-time team MVP Pat Dodge, who netted 66 goals last season, and Nicholas Koenemann who added an impressive 48 more scores. This tandem will be bolstered by sophomore Anthony Guadagni, whose outside shooting will create more scoring opportunities for his teammates.
On defense, goalie Chris Blick and Tom Mills will present Reed with two strong options between the pipes. Seniors Jason Grimes and Gur Doitel will will patrol the field, with Srdan Radnic manning the 2M defensive position.
Reed will have the luxury of depth with juniors Taylor Woodbury and Greg Abate, and sophomores Jonathan Lo, and Daniel Schneidermann. These players' roles will increase with another season under their belts, and Reed is confident they will rise to the challenge.
An infusion of youth in freshmen Julian Price and John Hornberger should make an immediate impact, bolstering the team's counterattack play.
The 2003 Colonials look forward to a season of success, as the veteran squad is determined to continue their improvement and capture the Southern Division crown.
