The new class includes a mid-semester transfer from West Valley Community College and another three high school standouts signing National Letters of Intent to join in the fall of 2014.
West Valley transfer Daniel Camburn joined the program this January and is working out with the team this spring, while high school standouts Dominick Beaudine (Agoura HS), Tim Shaw (Northwood HS) and Davis Waugh (Loyola HS) all signed NLIs.
"We are very excited for this young class," said Head Coach John Loughran. "They all come from backgrounds of successful water polo and fit the needs we have to put us back at the top of the Western Water Polo Association."
