Congratulations! West Seattle teens in Water Polo Junior Olympics

Congratulations to six West Seattle teens who recently competed in the 2015 Water Polo Junior Olympics in Southern California. From Cori Roed:

Conner Roed​, Josh Tittel​, and Charles Bruchal ​all played in their first Junior Olympics on the Rain City Water Polo 14U team and learned how tough California Polo can be. They hung tough and didn’t give up and on the final day got a victory that left them anxious for another go next year.

Blake Catlow played in his 4th JO for the Rain City 18U. It was a hard-fought tournament for his team after taking 2nd at John Hale the week before.

Silia Bruchal and Nicole Roed played with Seattle Water Polo, each on their 5th Junior Olympics trip. They had a tough first day but clawed their way back with 7 straight wins, then losing by two points in the final to take 2nd in Gold.

This was Nicole’s last JO. She is off to Cal Lutheran University to play soccer and polo as a CLU Regal. Blake and Silia will have one more trip next year following their senior year.

Have a swimmer who might want to play? Rain City Polo has a youth practice group at Evergreen Community Aquatic Center starting in September. Information’s at
