Water Polo Varsity
The Water Polo program at Wilbraham & Monson Academy was established in the fall of 1985 and elevated to Varsity status the next year.
The Varsity Water Polo team offers a rewarding athletic experience to all levels of ability, from first-year beginners to the more experienced players. We are also a truly global team, with domestic players competing alongside teammates from China, Thailand, Japan, Venezuela, Germany, Croatia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea and Saudi Arabia.
Many team members have gone on to play in college at institutions that include Trinity College, Cornell University, Slippery Rock University and the University of Southern California. WMA plays a diverse schedule of games that affords all team members the opportunity to compete and develop their individual skills. The schedule is comprised of both home and away contests, including a multi-school tournament near the end of the season.
The philosophy for the Water Polo team endeavors to provide experiences that will allow all students to achieve their maximum personal potential through the incorporation of the ideals of cooperation, sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork.

The Titans were overwhelmed by a much stronger team with great shooters. With six people sidelined, WMA was forced to sub often and change positions to try to gain an advantage. Strong performances by Mike Li '19 and Jason Mihalopoulos '22 with John Adams '20 in shallow end goal gave us a lift but not enough to come back.
The Titans scored using a wider variety of shots that ever before. Ka Chun "Mike" Li '19 stood out on defense. Scoring was shared around but hard to get past the Canterbury defense.
The Titans were tied or in the lead through the third period. Six goals from Jason Mihalopoulos '22 were a season high and Jon Adams '20 played well in shallow end goal. Ka Chun "Mike" Li '19 had a great second period with great saves so it was a big surprise when their two top scorers opened up in the fourth and outscored us 6-1.
