The West Sac Water Polo Clubhas qualified for the 2013 Junior Olympics.

It’s a first for Ryan “Coach Moe” Mosley and the West Sac Water Polo Club.  After a grueling two days of exceptional water polo last month, the winning 18-and-under boys’ team locked in their ticket to Orange County to compete against teams from all across the United States.

In another club “first,” its 16-and-under boys team this year will have a chance to experience the increased levels of competition found at the Central Valley Junior Olympics Qualifier.

The two teams played a total of 12 games, spread over two days at three separate Olympic-quality high school aquatic facilities in the city of Clovis. The games were intense and exhausting, including the nail-biting overtime shoot-outs.

The 18-and under squad included  RCHS students Austin “Junior” Stewart, Christopher Irish, Hunter Hartman, Jeret Tiller, Lucas Talbott, Adam Rodgers, and goalie Stetson Tate.

The younger squad featured RCHS students as well as members of the West Sacramento Dolphins swim team, including Bret Bachmeier, Johnathan Keilman, Julian Wright, Brennen Whipple, Quinn Riedel, Ryan Dela Rosa, Tyler “Eggnog” Packham, and goalie Cameron Guiliano-Puzi.
The team is raising money for the trip to Orange County for the 2013 Junior Olympics, July 26-30.

The team trains at the Rec Center pool in Southport.
