Titans water polo ends season in sectionals

The GBS men’s water polo team ended their season with an 11-13 loss to Evanston in sectionals following a second place finish at conference, giving them an overall record of 16 wins and 11 losses on the season.

But according to head coach David Lieberman, the team had hoped they would have made it further in sectionals. This was especially the case, as he felt the team was right where they needed be to before sectionals.

“We’re pretty competitive against our main competition—the teams in our conference and in our sectional,” Lieberman said.

Captain Danny Correa also believed the season was going well moving into sectionals.

“[We’re doing] pretty good, we’ve had a pretty solid season, we have a lot of fast guys,” Correa said.

Their forward momentum aside, GBS still lost to a conference opponent that they had previously defeated, a letdown in the coach’s eyes.

“We had beaten [Evanston] twice already,” Lieberman said. “We should have beaten them again, we just didn’t have our best game.”

Correa attributes the loss to Evanston to the team’s mindset before the game.

“We knew how good Evanston could be, […] so a lot of [the team] was not confident going into the game,” he said.

Although not happy about the loss, Correa feels the team tried their hardest and improved in their playing since conference.

“We fought a lot harder in our first game of sectionals than we did in our […] conference tournament,” Corea said. “We improved the energy and enthusiasm once we got in the game.”

The Titans finished that conference tournament with a loss to the New Trier in the championship May 4. Junior Seamus Heneghan feels the team did well in the game, he and attributes their performance to their teamwork.
