Colin Miles ‘21 plays boys’ varsity water polo and was one of the team’s leaders this year. Big Red finished 17-9, highlighted by an undefeated (5-0) run in the Lawrenceville Invitational Boys' Water Polo Tournament.
Dhillon Choudhri: How long have you been playing water polo?
Colin Miles: I have been playing since I was seven or eight.
DC: What position do you play? CM: It generally changes, but last year I played wing and this year I have played driver.
DC: Most people don’t know that much about water polo as a sport. Can you give a little insight into the kind of training and practice that goes into the game? CM: We train by working on our swimming, a lot of leg workouts and drills. Legs are probably the most important part of water polo because you need to be able to get up out of the water and move around quickly.
DC: What is the most memorable part of your Lawrenceville water polo career?
