Islander Boys Water Polo Teams Win U16 And U18 Divisions Of The Hawaiian Invitational

In a rare double, the Coronado Aquatics Club (CAC), the off-season home of the Islander Boys Water Polo Team, sent two squads to participate in the 50th Annual Hawaiian Invitational played July 31 to Aug. 5. Both the 16-and-Under and the 18-and Under Teams representing Coronado won their divisions. Islander Head Coach Sean Castillo recalled the team he played on at Coronado High School (CHS) might have accomplished the double victory during the summer of 2005, but at the very least, it’s been a while.

Starting with the 16’s, according to Castillo, that team was comprised of high school freshmen, sophomores and a few juniors. And there was quite a bit of overlap on the rosters for both teams. As an example, Islander rising sophomore Teddy Oliver was the primary goalie for both teams and in fact was

Ted Nulty (CHS ’83) Achieves Major Success As A Multi-Genre Author

Ted Nulty is a difficult man to interview, but not because he’s not engaging or willing to talk. Simply the number of successful things he has done in his life is daunting. As an interviewer, you start to get a handle on one profession and then you find out there’s more to uncover.

Nulty is the son of Thomas G. and Pamela Nulty. He arrived auspiciously, born on the driveway to the Queens North Hospital in New York City. Nulty explained, “My mother couldn’t quite get into the hospital.”

Nulty detailed his family’s military history, which now covers four generations. “My father was involved in Marine Corps amphibious reconnaissance. He wrote and designed the Small Boat Program for the Navy SEALs and Marines. Area 51 at Camp Pendleton, where the machine gun and mortar pits are, is named the Thomas G. Nulty Training Facility after my father. My mother Pam was the U.S. Marine Intramural Judo champion for eight consecutive years. She could Kung Fu King Kong. They were a corporal and a staff sergeant when they met. My great-grandfather earned the Navy Cross in World War I, by grandfather served in the Marines under Lt. Gen. Chesty Puller, and my father won the Silver Star in Vietnam.”
