Chaparral High School Senior Sets New Southwestern League Boys’ Water Polo Record


TEMECULA, CA – Chaparral High School senior Jack Donnelly, a two-time U.S.A. Water Polo Academic All-American, scored 182 goals during the 2015 season, shattering the previous Southwestern League record of 177 goals, which was set in 2012 by former teammate Michael Gleason.

Donnelly scored his final five goals against Laguna Beach High School during Chaparral’s loss and final match in the first-round of CIF tournament play on November 11. A four-year varsity player and two-year captain, he also recorded 57 assists and 167 steals for the 2015 season. Donnelly was named Team Most Valuable Player for Chaparral in both 2014 and 2015, and he was a unanimous First Team Southwestern League-nominated player in 2014 and 2015.

According to Donnelly, CHS Coach Josh Stone and Elite Water Polo Club Coach Bryan Lynton, who is also the head coach for Murrieta Valley High School, were major influences in his progress this season and overall player development.
