Easterns

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Mon, Nov 6, 2017 at 7:15 AM

Congratulations to the varsity water polo team for their win against Saint Benedict’s Prep of Newark, New Jersey in the "Easterns" prep school tournament this past weekend. The Gaels were down 1 – 4 early in the second period, but then clamped down on defense and executed on offense during a 10 – 2 run deep into the fourth period, and ended up with the victory, 11 – 8. Lorenzo Gurri and Matt Emelio led teh scoring with three goals apiece, Ryan Morgan and Adam Stein each scored twice, and Jack Gregory added a goal.

The victory put MSJ into a re-match game against early-season opponent Landon. The Gaels found themselves down 3 – 6 at half in what was a spirited, high-energy contest, and MSJ surged in the third period, scoring the first four goals of the second half to take a 7 – 6 lead, but the team couldn’t hold off Landon’s answer back and found themselves down 7 – 11 midway through the fourth quarter. The final score was 9 – 13. Matt Emelio led the scoring with four goals, Adam Stein had two goals, and Ben Oursler, Lorenzo Gurri and Colin Scott each scored. John Nguyen and Jack Gregory led the team with two assists each.

Game 1 on Saturday vs. Hill was less competitive, and MSJ lost 4 – 12. Goals were scored by Matt Emelio (2), Ben Oursler (1) and Dane Milleker (1).

Congratulations to the entire team for their hard work all season. Special thanks to all the parents for their support. The coaches look forward to the banquet at the end of the month – information to follow soon.

Dear all,

Loyola games recap (one day late!):

Congratulations to the JV Water Polo team for their effort against Loyola Tuesday. Down by one after two periods with the score at 2 – 3, the Gaels succeeded in creating scoring opportunities (18 missed shots) but had trouble matching Loyola’s intensity and the game slipped away in the second half, and the Gaels fell, 4 – 11. Neil Gulmert (2), Patrick Bauer (1) and Hunter Smith (1) scored for MSJ, and Neil, John Tis and Patrick Scott recorded assists.

Congratulations to the Varsity Water Polo team for their game against Loyola on Senior Day this past Tuesday. The Gaels worked hard and had much success on offensive drives, getting position and drawing ejections (13 against Loyola vs. only 5 against MSJ), but ultimately MSJ could not overcome the Dons, losing 6 – 11. Adam Stein scored five times, and Jack Gregory had a goal. Colin Scott led the team with three assists; Ben Oursler also recorded one. Congratulations to Ben, Colin, Adam, Danny Miller, John Nguyen, Tyler Overmier and Dane Milleker for playing in their last home game of their careers.

See everyone at Gilman today!

calvert hall games

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Fri, Sep 22, 2017 at 7:25 AM

Congratulations to the JV water polo team for their victory over Calvert Hall yesterday. The Cardinals came out strong and St. Joe was down 2 – 5 at the end of the first quarter, but the Gaels came roaring back with thirteen unanswered goals and held Calvert Hall scoreless until the final two and a half minutes of the game, ultimately winning 16 – 7. Hunter Smith scored ten times in the game, Alexander Chairs scored four goals and led the team with five steals, and Neil Gulmert added a goal and led the team with four assists. John Tis also scored. Special kudos to Christian McCormick, who had nine saves to lead the defense that held Calvert Hall to a shutout for nearly three full quarters.

Congratulations to the Varsity water polo team for a great effort against Calvert Hall yesterday. The Gaels dominated early, earning a 4 – 1 lead at the end of the first period, and the score was only 4 – 2 at the half as both defenses buckled down. The Cardinals edged ahead 6 – 8 after three periods as the Gaels started to commit more major fouls than they drew, and eventually MSJ ran out of gas at the end, falling 7 – 13. Congratulations to the whole team for the strong effort against the MIAA’s perennial powerhouse. Matt Emelio, Adam Stein, Colin Scott and Ben Oursler all scored in the game, and Danny Miller was rock solid in goal, recording a season-best 17 saves.

Gilman & McDonogh games

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Fri, Sep 15, 2017 at 8:35 AM

Congratulations to the JV Water Polo team for a hard-fought effort in a closely-contested game versus Gilman on Tuesday. Five times the Gaels came from behind to tie the score, and never trailed by more than two goals, and although they had possession inside the last 30 seconds of the game, MSJ was unable to force an overtime and lost, 9 – 10. Neil Gulmert and Hunter Smith led the scoring with three goals apiece; Patrick Scott and Patrick Bauer also scored. Sean Miller led the team with three assists.

Congratulations to the JV Water Polo team for their victory over McDonogh yesterday, 8 – 6. Hunter Smith led the scoring with four goals. Neil Gulmert, Logan Anderson and Cole Hite also scored, and Patrick Bauer’s goal late in the fourth quarter sealed the victory. Neil Gulmert led the team with four assists, and Patrick Scott and Cole Hite helped anchor a strong team defense, each player recording two steals.

Congratulations to the Varsity Water Polo team for hard-fought efforts versus Gilman and McDonogh last Tuesday and yesterday. The team showed improvement in each game, not to mention lots of grit and determination all the way through the games. The guys played hard and never backed down. The Gilman game ended in a 5 – 14 loss. In the McDonogh game, MSJ hung with the talented Eagles and only trailed 3 – 5 at halftime, but eventually fell by a score of 5 – 10. Adam Stein, Jack Gregory, Ben Oursler and Lorenzo Gurri all scored in the games; Luke Peters and Danny Miller joined these players in recording assists. Danny played tough in goal in both games, recording nine and twelve saves, respectively, and occasionally absorbed some punishment against offenses armed with strong shooters.

Battle of the Beltways

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Sun, Sep 10, 2017 at 10:17 PM

Congratulations to the varsity water polo team for their efforts at the Battle of the Beltways tournament at Navy this past weekend. The team had some highs and some lows as they soldiered through four losses on the weekend, but the team played some of their best polo of the young season against some of the best competition faced so far, and thus have positive momentum that we hope carries into the league competition that begins this week. Adam Stein led the team in scoring with seven goals; Lorenzo Gurri, Ryan Morgan, Jack Gregory and Gage Bangert also scored. Ben Oursler, Ryan Morgan and Jack Gregory all tied for the team lead in assists with three apiece; Aidan Dunworth, Lorenzo Gurri, Colin Scott, Adam Stein, John Nguyen and Matt Emelio also added assists.

Scores:

3 – 13 vs. Landon

7 – 9 vs. Whitman

1 – 15 vs. St. Pius (Atlanta, GA)

Date: Fri, Sep 8, 2017 at 11:31 AM

Dear all,

The Zumo water polo suits orders went into production at two different times. Many players received suits and/or towels yesterday, but many did not; the second order will likely not arrive until the week of the 18th.

Team photo day is on Tuesday, September 12th, before our first home game next week. All players will be photographed for the yearbook. Purchasing team and/or individual photos is optional, and must be pre-paid on the deck directly to the Lifetouch photographer on Tuesday. Envelopes & forms for making a purchase from Lifetouch are available on the pool deck, in the Studies Office with Coach McDivitt, and in Room 117 with Coach Dougherty; you can also download a form here: http://www.msjnet.edu/uploaded/Athletics/life_touch_2017.pdf.

Philmore Cup – great start and thank you; BattleOTBeltways

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Mon, Sep 4, 2017 at 8:16 PM

Dear MSJ Water Polo,

A message forwarded on behalf of Coach Patrick:

The coaching staff wants to congratulate the MSJ water polo varsity squad on a very promising and hard-fought beginning to the season at the Philmore tournament – very exciting games this weekend! Even though two losses were of sizable margin, the guys played very well for only having nine practices together to date. The team shows great potential.

We also want to thank the awesome parent group we have for their vocal and positive support as well as the awesome spread of nourishment for the boys between games. It is truly a great time seeing this polo family in action.

Lastly, we want to thank our captains for their leadership and efforts in helping guide the team this weekend. Fantastic job!

We are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding season. Go Gaels!

RE: the Battle of the Beltways tournament at Navy this weekend (Varsity only)

The tournament schedule required revision and we still have not received an updated version. It is most likely that we will play at 1:00 and at 4:00 on Saturday, but it is not yet clear when we play on Sunday; though it seems likely we will play at 11:00, and then perhaps at 3:00. The updated schedule will be passed along as soon as we have it.

Players are encouraged to arrange their own transportation to Annapolis this weekend. If necessary, a shuttle bus will run from MSJ for any player who needs a ride.

Other recent alumni may assist, and coaches Patrick Underwood, Whitney Dougherty and I will attend sporadically as schedules allow.

Students who attend are asked to bring a $5.00 participation fee with them each day to help cover use of the facility. We are very thankful that Hunting Hills has provided our school with this opportunity. Players – please remember that we are guests at the facility.

Easterns

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Mon, Nov 7, 2016 at 12:05 PM

Congratulations to the water polo team for their play in the final tournament of the year this past weekend at the Eastern Prep High School Water Polo Championships, where MSJ was the 7th-seed (of eight) in the lower “B” bracket. Mount Saint Joe had a tough time early in their first game against Penn Charter (PA), over whom MSJ earned an early season victory this past August, falling to 0 – 5 to open the game and 2 – 10 at halftime. A redoubled second half effort helped the Gaels compete more evenly, but the slow start was too much to overcome, and the score ended 7 – 14.

In the second game vs. Pingry (NJ), the Gaels started out 2 – 0, but then let up eight unanswered goals, and the dominant play of one or two skilled opposition players proved too much to handle, and MSJ lost 12 – 22.

The Gaels’ most competitive game was on Sunday versus St. Benedict’s Prep (NJ), where the Gaels were able to muster the most offense of the weekend and actually out-shot the opposition, but 19 shots missed the mark, and the Gaels fell 9 – 14.

Adam Stein led St. Joe in scoring each game, amassing 13 goals in the tournament. Ben Oursler led the Gaels in assists with 6 on the weekend. Other teammates who scored goals and/or recorded assists included Luke Buczynski, Sam Monaco, Michael Bangert, Colin Scott, Tim Stevick, Ryan Morgan, Lorenzo Gurri, Jeremy Luers, Luke Peters and Jack Gregory.

A reminder that the water polo banquet is scheduled for November 29 at 7 pm in the MSJ cafeteria. Look another message soon with details.

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Tue, Oct 25, 2016 at 6:18 PM

Dear all,

The Eastern Prep Water Polo Tournament seedings, locations and schedules have been set. Apologies for not communicating the information below sooner, but it was not until this afternoon that confirmations regarding the tournament were sent out to the teams involved.

The team will travel via school minibus to the tournament. The team will stay at the Fairfield Inn Marriott Valley Forge, 258 Mall Boulevard, King of Prussia, PA 19406, 610-337-0700. This is on the loop road of the gargantuan King of Prussia Mall. There are several hotels in the area, but if any parent would like to stay at the Fairfield Inn, you are encouraged to call the number listed above (NOT the general reservations #) and ask for the sales manager, and then indicate you would like to book a room with the Mount Saint Joe group; the hotel has temporarily held some rooms for our families at a reduced price.

We will play our games at the Episcopal Academy, 1785 Bishop White Drive, Newtown Square, PA 19073. The game schedule is below.

Itinerary: we will leave from the MSJ turnaround at 12:30 pm on Saturday, November 5th and drive directly to the hotel to check-in, and then proceed immediately to EA get settled and prepared for warmups prior to our first game at 5:00 pm. Students should eat a good meal prior to boarding the bus, and bring food with them to eat as lunch and/or snacks in the afternoon and evening – as the schedule below indicates, we will play our second game at either 8:00 pm or 9:00 pm Saturday night, with only the opportunity for some refueling in between. Breakfast is served in the hotel, and lunch is available from several local locations, including the following recommendation: see www.ourdeli.net, located on East Lancaster Ave, a favorite of past MSJ water polo teams (not to mention coaches). Please note on the schedule below that our final game time on Sunday can vary considerably, depending on our win/loss progression through the first two games.

A permission slip will be emailed and posted at Team App soon. Please deliver it completed to coach McDivitt or Dougherty as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Greg McDivitt

Loyola games

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Wed, Oct 19, 2016 at 6:10 PM

Congratulations to the JV Water Polo team for battling hard against the undefeated Loyola JV squad on Tuesday. The Gaels put a scare into the top-ranked Dons, taking a 5 – 5 tie score into the 4th period, but MSJ was unable put Loyola away, and the Dons escaped defeat, final score of 6 – 7. Lorenzo Gurri led the team in scoring with four goals; Jeremy Luers and Luke Peters also scored.

Congratulations as well to the Varsity Water Polo team, who also battled hard against Loyola, ranked second in the league with a 12 – 3 overall record. Seemingly down and out by a score of 1 – 9 midway through the second period, the Gaels refused to quit and worked their way back into the game, finishing the game at a score of 9 – 14. Adam Stein led the scoring with five goals; Sam Monaco and Tim Stevick added two goals each. Danny Miller recorded eleven saves and two aggressive, well-timed steals.

water polo

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Fri, Oct 14, 2016 at 8:58 AM

Congratulations to the JV water polo team for their 10 – 9 victory in double overtime against Gilman yesterday. Knotted up at eight apiece at the end of regulation, Lorenzo Gurri scored in the first OT and Luke Peters in the second, but the victory was sealed by an excellent team effort in defense, highlighted by Aidan Dunworth’s swarming press, a critical steal late in the game by Matt Emelio (who led the team with three) and by Christian McCormick in goal, who recorded five of his fourteen saves in the overtime periods. Ryan Morgan also scored in the game, and Jeremy Luers again led the team in assists.

Congratulations as well to the Varsity water polo team who played with fire in their guts and spit in their eyes against Gilman on MSJ’s senior day. At the end of the first half, the Gaels were down 1 – 10, but they never wavered, and instead ratcheted up the defensive intensity, kept driving on offense (drawing 13 ejections to MSJ’s 7), and started shooting lights out, rattling the league’s best goalie, scoring a total of ten against him, and essentially winning the second half 9 – 6, finishing with a final score of 10 – 16. Special congratulations to seniors Michael Bangert (led the team with four goals, all in the fourth quarter), Tim Stevick (broke the seal and scored first for the team) and Sam Monaco (scored once, tied for the team lead with two steals and two assists, and insists that I must have missed a few because two assists seems low).

Congratulations again to both squads!

McDonogh games

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Wed, Oct 5, 2016 at 10:16 AM

Congratulations to the JV water polo team for their efforts in hotly contested, intense battle against McDonogh yesterday in a game that saw seven tie scores and went into double overtime. Although the Gaels dominated in stretches and out-shot the Eagles 34 – 20, the rewards for all the hard work in the pool remained largely elusive in the scoring department, and when McDonogh went ahead 8 – 9 in the final minute, the Gaels were unable to answer back. It was a disappointing loss for the squad, who put their all into the effort, and kudos go to the team for their grit and determination; it was a great game to be a part of, frustrations aside. Luke Peters, Jack Gregory, Matt Emelio, Lorenzo Gurri and Jeremy Luers all scored in the game. Ryan Morgan’s tenacious defense yielded a team-leading three steals, and Christian McCormick recorded five saves in the 4th quarter and overtime periods to keep the Gaels in the game right to the end.

The varsity Gaels also worked hard, but were outmatched by McDonogh, 3 – 18. Adam Stein and Tim Stevick scored.

announcement – water polo

From: Greg McDivitt

Congratulations to the water polo teams for battling illness, injury and the weather as they played well in six games in an outdoor pool at Landon this weekend. Highlights included JV victories over Whitman, 15 – 2, and Landon, 7 – 1. Luke Peters and Jack Gregory led the scoring with seven goals apiece, and Jeremy Luers led the team with eight assists. Adam Stein led the varsity with ten goals, and special recognition goes to captain Sam Monaco for playing well and earning 24 saves in his career debut in goal, stepping up to fill in the role as illness depleted the bench and left the Gaels with a short roster.

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Friday, September 23, 2016

Congratulations to the JV Water Polo team for their victory over Calvert Hall yesterday, 11 – 9. Luke Peters led the scoring with five goals; Lorenzo Gurri scored three times, Jack Gregory twice, and Gage Bangert added a goal. Jeremy Luers led the team with four assists. Ryan Morgan joined the aforementioned players to contribute to the Gaels’ swarming defense, which recorded a season-high thirteen steals in the game.

Congratulations as well to the Varsity Water Polo team for playing their best team game of the season, in addition to displaying their usual effort and grit. The team fell by a score of 7 – 14 in a game that was relatively evenly matched; the Gaels consistently won hard-earned chances but sometimes faltered in the final execution of plays, as they shot 28% on the day. Goals were scored by Adam Stein, Michael Bangert, Sam Monaco and Luke Buczynski. Danny Miller recorded thirteen saves.

Congratulations to the JV water polo team for fighting hard against Gilman yesterday in an exciting game that unfortunately ended similarly to last week’s game against McDonogh with a one goal loss to an MIAA opponent, 11 – 12. In a balanced offensive attack, Luke Peters, Jeremy Luers and Lorenzo Gurri each contributed three goals; Jack Gregory added two scores. Ryan Morgan and Matt Emelio played tough defense and had two steals apiece. The team looks forward to the opportunity to play Calvert Hall at home on Thursday.

The Varsity water polo team played with a lot of heart and a lot of effort and never backed down against the experienced, talented squad from Gilman. The Gaels fell by a score of 2 – 20 and look forward to the chance to play Gilman at home in a bigger pool later this season.

Lorenzo Gurri was the high scorer with four goals; Jack Gregory added three scores, and Luke Peters and Jeremy Luers had one goal apiece.

The Varsity water polo team worked hard but was unable to pose any significant threat against McDonogh and fell 3 – 12. Michael Bangert and Sam Monaco scored in the effort.

Dear all,

We have the schedule of games for the Big Bear tournament hosted by Landon on October 1st & 2nd. See below!

Note that the games are scheduled at the Landon School (6101 Wilson Lane, Bethesda), NOT at their sister school Holton Arms, as in past years and as originally announced. This means that the games will take place in Landon’s outdoor pool, so the event is weather-dependent. The decision regarding weather and cancellation will be made at approximately 2:00 pm on Friday, September 30.

Players should provide their own transportation to the games. If this presents any issues, please contact Coach McDivitt directly. Bus transportation can be arranged if necessary.

Players need to arrive at Landon one hour before the start of game time.

Games run from 8 am to 6 pm. MSJ Schedule:

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Mon, Sep 12, 2016 at 5:32 PM

Dear all,

As described at our pre-season meeting August 17th and the MIAA sportsmanship meeting on August 23rd, we plan to play both JV and Varsity games in a tournament in Bethesda, MD on October 1st & 2nd, but we will not travel to Newtown Square & Pottstown in Pennsylvania in October for what are using our perennial games versus Episcopal Academy and the Hill School.

Unfortunately, we still do not know any details regarding the schedule of games at Holton Arms (the tournament site) for 10/1 & 10/2, but conversations with the Landon coaching staff (the host school) this past weekend at Navy indicates that we may get four games for both JV and Varsity (eight games total).

As soon as the schedule is available, I will forward it. In the meantime, please keep the weekend of October 1 & 2 as free as possible, and thank you for your patience and flexibility. We hope to have details filled in soon.

Bus transportation to Navy this weekend

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Thu, Sep 8, 2016 at 6:25 PM

Dear all,

A minibus is available to take players to and from the Navy tournament this weekend both on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, the bus will leave from the MSJ circle at 10:30 am. Games are at 1:00 and 4:00. The bus will return to MSJ after the second game.

On Sunday, the bus will leave from the MSJ circle at 7:30 am. Games are at 10:00 and 1:00. The bus will return to MSJ after the second game.

Please email me (Coach McDivitt) directly ASAP if your son plans to ride the bus on one or both days. One-way or two-way shuttles are fine – I just need to know who should be on the bus.

For players and families that are driving directly to the USNA in Annapolis (this option is fine!): unless you already possess access to the Academy campus, you will need to park in town and enter the pedestrian gate. The water polo pool is located in Macdonough Hall.

Thank you,

Greg McDivitt
