Games Played: 6

Goals: 14

Ejections Drawn: 16

After extreme flooding forced the men’s water polo team to cancel its home invitational on Sept. 10 and 11, Jack Else ’14 led the Bison to an impressive 3-1 record this past weekend at the North vs. South Invitational in Annapolis, Md. Throughout the competition, Else was a dominant offensive force, tallying a total of 10 goals and two assists in the team’s three contests. Else’s greatest contribution came on the final day of play when he netted seven goals during two key victories against Iona and Fordham. Else contributed 13 drawn ejections allowing the Bison plenty of extra scoring chances.

As a second-year player, Else will have a much bigger role this season for the No. 16 Bison. In the 29 games the team played last year, Else amassed a total of 21 goals and is well on his way to surpassing that total this year after scoring 14 in just the team’s first two weekends of play. The Bison will certainly need him to continue his offensive dominance if they hope to compete for a championship this season. Despite boasting a 7-1 record to this point, the team will face its toughest opponents in the coming weeks and will need not only Else, but the entire Bison squad to be at its best.
