Besides the state of California, the town of Greenwich is known for producing some of the top water polo players in the country.
Greenwich and Brunswick School have experienced plenty of successful moments in the pool over the years and the NISCA has noticed.
The teams are well represented on the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association Boys Water Polo All-America Team.
Nico Apostolides, a 2019 Brunswick graduate, earned First Team All-America honors.
His Bruins teammate, Keegan Drew, who also graduated this past May, is a Fourth Team NISCA all-America selection. Apostolides and Drew each served as captains on Brunswick’s 2018-2019 squad, which finished the season with its fifth straight NEPSAC championship.
Kyle Laufenberg, who graduated from Greenwich last month, was named to the NISCA all-America Second Team. Laufenberg, one of the Cardinals’ captains, starred as the team’s goalie.
He recorded 30 saves and 10 steals during Greenwich’s appearance at the Mid-Atlantic Championships — a tournament it won. Charlie Clark, a Cardinals rising senior was a Fifth Team all-America selection.
Clark was named the tournament’s MVP at the Mid-Atlantic Championships. He registered 16 goals, five assists and 11 steals during the four-game tournament.
Timothy D’Agostino and Nicolas de la Sierra, both of whom were senior captains this past fall for the Cardinals, were each All-American Honorable Mention selections.
