Sunday, October 30, 2022---USC Men’s Water Polo Senior Day

My husband Jim and I arrived an hour early at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center for the USC Men's Water Polo Senior Day. I set my stuff on the bench, got my two cameras and walked downstairs to take pictures.

I took a picture of each USC Senior’s banner. Here they are in numerical order.

#8 Captain Jake Ehrhardt
#9 Captain Marcus Longton
#10 Payne Fama
#20 Chris Agliozzo
#22 Grayden Reynolds
#23 Ashworth Molthen
#26 Stefan Vavic
When I finished all eleven banners, Trojan Candy took a picture of our Spirit of Troy.
Then, I walked to the pool to take this picture of both teams warming up.

5600While Trojan Candy was taking pictures, she met a new friend, Stew McGuire, who was also taking pictures with his Canon EOS R camera. His son Tom is a Junior on the water polo team. Stew said that he knows all the team families. So when I post my blog, I will ask Stew to notify the entire team. Thank you, Stew!
