ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- With the spring exhibition season coming up on the collegiate water polo calendar, the Navy water polo team announced that rising senior Matt Skowronski (McLean, Va.) has been selected to serve as the club's captain. A prominent three-year member of Navy's core lineup, Skowronski is entrusted with leading 21 returning players from the 2016 Midshipmen roster.
"It's a real privilege being able to represent my teammates and everyone else involved in the program," remarked Skowronski about his appointment.
During his first three years as a utility player for Navy, Skowronski has participated in 82 of the Mids' 85 games and recorded 80 points on 48 goals and 32 assists. A skilled competitor on both ends of the pool, the Virginia native has been amongst the team's annual leaders in steals for Navy. Over his first three seasons, Skowronski has been credited with 38 steals.
"I am very excited for the upcoming season," said Skowronski. "We have a lot of returning talent as well as some new players that will really help us do some damage next fall."
