Lakeridge senior Terran Walker named TRL boys polo MVP
To the victors go the spoils.
And in Three Rivers League boys water polo, the victors were the boys teams from Lakeridge and Newberg.
The Pacers and Tigers split their two regular-season matches, Lakeridge won the two teams' state seeding contest, then saw Newberg come back to win the 2017 Oregon High School Water Polo state championship in a 9-7 decision over the Pacers.
In response, Lakeridge had six players honored on Three Rivers League all-star teams while Newberg had five players honored.
Lakeridge senior Terran Walker was named Most Valuable Player for 2017, while four other Pacers were named to the all-TRL second team and another two to the third team.
For Lake Oswego, which finished third in the regular season, four Lakers were honored, that group led by junior first-teamer Myles Williams.
