The phrase, ‘To the Victors go the spoils,’ was never more accurate than in the case of the Islander Boys Water Polo Team, which won the San Diego CIF Open Division Championship in 2017. In the past week, several Islander Team members earned individual recognition. Islander junior and Co-Captain Andy Rodgers was named CIF Player of the Year. He was joined on the All-CIF First Team by senior Mason Farley.

Earning All-CIF Second Team honors was Coronado’s freshman goalie Teddy Oliver. Ten players county-wide were named to the First Team and 10 more athletes made it on the Second Team. Only two sophomores earned All-CIF recognition and Oliver was the only freshman. The feeling of some water polo experts was that Oliver should have been named to the All-CIF First Team. Also included in the barrage of Islander awards, Head Coach Sean Castillo was named CIF Water Polo Coach of the Year.

Rodgers was one of six prep athletes named Stars of the Month for November 2017 by the San Diego Hall of Champions. Rodgers and the other winners will be recognized at 72nd Annual Salute to the Champions on February 1, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla.

At the Boys Water Polo Banquet held Friday at YMCA Camp Surf in Imperial Beach, Castillo announced the following awards for the three teams the program fields. Varsity Awards – Team Captains-Nate Smith and Andy Rodgers; Most Valuable Player-Rodgers; Most Valuable Defense- Oliver; Most Improved-George Farley; Coaches‘ Award-Mitchell Martin; Islander Sports Foundation Award-Calvin Peckham; Steve Schofer Memorial „For the Love of the Game“-Carlos Morales; and the Golden Tassel Award for best Grade Point Average-Kyle Cook, with a 4.18 GPA. The Islander Team had the highest unweighted GPA in the CIF San Diego Section, South Region, with a 3.58, with Cook being named as the team’s Cymer Athlete, the player on the winning team with the highest weighted GPA.

The Junior Varsity Awards were presented to: Team Captain-Hill Bosworth; Most Valuable-Connor Bernard; Most Improved-Patricio Galindo; and the Coaches’ Award-Mathew Wastila. The Novice Awards were presented to: Team Captain-Harrison Bartell; Most Valuable-Peter Olsen; Most Improved-Josef Schuller; and the Coaches‘ Award-Trevor Wilson.

Coach Castillo said of his Coach OTY Award, which was determined by a vote of the coaches at the end-of-year CIF meeting, “Some of the coaches in the room have been coaching for a very long time and I played against some of them. They are well-respected in the industry. It was nice to hear that I won the award, but other than that, it doesn’t mean too much. The team success this year is what we were going after.”

As for Oliver’s accolades, “During the meeting, I brought up how we were Western League champions and CIF champions. The only way you have that type of success is if you have a strong goalie. He had one-on-nobody blocked shots in each of the last two CIF Playoff games and double-digit saves in every big game we played. Our defense stepped up a lot and Teddy was a large part of that. Toward the end of the meeting, everyone agreed that he deserved to be on the All-CIF Team.”

A final Boys Water Polo note, four Islander seniors were selected to play in the CIF Senior All-Star Game over the weekend, including Smith, Mason Farley, Martin and Cook. Castillo coached the Small Schools to a 10-7 victory over the Large Schools in the annual contest. Smith and Farley scored goals in the game.
