“One of the best things I will take away from this job is the relationships that I have developed with my former players. You are part of the family to myself, Adelle, Eric, Casey and Delayne’ added Lynton. “Thank you for keeping in touch and thank you most of all for being good human beings… for believing in the program and always giving me your best. I will always cherish you women and thank you for being part of the family”.

The Nighthawk Boys, who have not played at home since the season opener ,will travel to face Santa Margarita in a non-conference game next Tuesday. It’s great to still have Coach Lynton sitting in his chair at the edge of the pool in the Nighthawk Water Polo program.
