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.
