artmouth Water Polo aims to return to the National Collegiate Club Championship, where they finished 4th in 2013 and 6th in 2012. Helmed by three-time New England Conference Coach of the Year Randy Budner and assistant coach Forrest Pollard, the team will aim to fill the holes of three departing All-Americans, including First Team goalie Dan Harnish. The Big Green returns starters Keaton Renta, Peter Loomis, and Fanis Tigkas, a 2013 Honorable Mention All-American. In addition, bench players Adam Tong, Chris D’Angelo, and David Rozenfeld are returning for another go-around and look to step up into bigger roles after the loss of nine graduationg players. Dartmouth will need contributions from other returners, as well newcomers Colin Fristoe, Ben Wilson, and Eric Thorpe in the field, and Sandy Goss between the pipes in order to claim their third straight New England Conference Championship and a berth to the National Collegiate Club Championship.
Dartmouth Water Polo works extremely hard for its short season, with preseason training camp during the Summer-Fall interim and off-campus practices at White River Junction's Upper Valley Aquatic Center (UVAC), which generously allows the team to use its 25-meter all-deep pool.
Though water polo at Dartmouth is a club sport, the team trains rigorously and as hard as varsity programs. The team is open to all students of the College or any of its graduate programs.
