It was the final home match for the 2021 Islanders Boys Water Polo team, as they took on a non-league opponent in Foothills High School. 

But perhaps more importantly it was Senior Night and thus members of the team were honored before the game for their accomplishments and achievements that they earned while members of the storied Islanders Water Polo team.  

The four seniors honored were Jack Hilinski, who has been one of the top goal scorers for the Islanders this season and will be exteending his water polo career next year as a member of the UCLA water polo team; Max Ramey, who much like Hillinski, has provided their Islanders with consistent offense this season; Anthony Aiello, who has maintained stern defense and a strong offensive option for the Islanders all season; and Blake Bergener who has played physical and dominant all season for the Islanders. 

Unfortunately, however, the Islanders would drop their final game of the 2021 regular season by the score 19-4, closing the book on the Islanders regular season and giving them a record of 10-17. 

But while the regular season has a bow tied around it, the Islanders still have postseason play to look forward to. Coronado was awarded the No. 7 overall seed in the CIF Open Division playoffs, the highest division a team can play in here in San Diego county.

The Islanders will be taking on the No. 2 seeded Dons of Cathedral Catholic, a team that the Islanders have already played twice in league play this season.

For those interested in attending and supporting the Islanders the game will be played on Wednesday, Nov. 3 at Cathedral Catholic High School at 7:45 p.m.
