Voggenthaler has been on the boys varsity water polo team since he was a freshman, which means when Aaron was 14 he was playing with guys who were 18.

“Aaron has put in the work and now he is receiving the awards he deserves”, senior captain Henry Wagner said.

The senior captain has been playing water polo since he was in the third grade at eight years old.

Voggenthaler has also competed in junior olympics since he was in third grade. Every summer for five days straight Voggenthaler attended the biggest championship tournament in the country.

A lot of Voggenthaler’s success comes from his play calling, “My favorite play to run is ‘Sturges’ it opens up opportunities for the offense,” said Voggenthaler. Senior captain Zach Rath on the team has a big influence on the team’s performance.

Both Rath and Voggenthaler are currently the top two scorers on the team. “Our team has a lot of potential,” said Rath. Their team has a record of 6-2.
