Grandville Boys Program to rejoin MWPA
Grandville, Mich. - After a two-year hiatus, the Grandville Boys Water Polo program has been reformed and will again compete within the Michigan Water Polo Association (MWPA), under the direction of head coach Mitch Fountain.
"We are thrilled to be able to reestablish our Boys Program once again at Grandville," Fountain said. "This took a group effort of planning between the athletic department and my entire coaching staff to offer more programming to the student-athletes. We are looking forward to bringing Grandville back to State-level prominence in short order. Go Bulldogs!"
The boys program has competed as a cooperative program hosted by Jenison over the last two seasons, and will play at the junior varsity level only in 2022.
A statement from the MWPA: The Michigan Water Polo Association and the Grandville program's goal is for the boys to fully rejoin and compete at the varsity level as a solo program in its second season of return from hiatus. We believe with their growing middle school program and already growing interest within the current high school group that this is a realistic goal as we continue our charted path to growing the game.
We would like to thank the OK Conference members and coaching staffs for planning Grandville into their schedules to allow them valuable playing experience this coming season.
Grandville will re-enter competition in boys district one and will open their season on March 18 vs. Rockford at 4:50 pm at the Bulldog Brawl, hosted by Grandville.
