Water Polo (Boys): Varsity vs. Hopkins (10/9/21 3:30 PM)

Event Details

Despite a wide margin in the final score, Deerfield played well against Hopkins in several stretches. The defensive lapses that allowed the opponents too many power-play opportunities were the Big Green’s undoing.  As Deerfield’s young team continues to gain vital experience, newcomers are playing important roles. Totton Heffelfinger ’23, despite nagging injuries, has played well in recent games.  His endurance and speed allow him to defend well in the counterattack and to stretch the opposing team’s defense as he sprints from end to end. More notably, Totton led the team’s service project, an effort in which each player was encouraged to make a donation to match the number of sequences completed in the annual Dirty Dozen practice.  The team raised $350 for Thrive.com, a nonprofit agency that funds hunger relief programs in South Asian nations.
