The Brother Rice Crusaders faced off against Prospects on Saturday, April 9 at Glenbrook North High School with a huge 12-7 victory. The Crusaders played an outstanding game on offense and defense, and the most valuable player of the game was Hunter Tempel.

Jack Byrne said “This was a great offensive game for us, we finished and took the win home.” Byrne is the only senior on the water polo team and leads by example for all the younger teammates.

Sean Mulcrone said, “We could have played better on defense, but we still executed.”

Another Crusader Zach Figus said, “This was a great win for the team as we have more upcoming games next week.”

The Crusaders’ record is 3-12 so far this season. The team has games later this week during spring break if you want to come out and watch them compete. The team travels down to Fremd, Illinois to compete in a tournament.
