Former women’s water polo head coach, David Almquist decided to end his coaching career in the city his playing career began, here at RCC.
Almquist left behind a strong program that has built a winning tradition in his years here, but now it will be up to a new head coach.
Doug Frinfrock will be taking over the highly sought after job after learning the ways from Almquist.
Frinfrock, like Amquist, is a product of the RCC aquatics program. He has played under coach Almquist as well has coached under his tutelage.
Frinfrock’s experience and familiarity with the women on the team will be critical towards their success.
The Tigers will be losing at least 10 players, but still have plenty of fire power to hang with the top teams in the state.
Tara Scheibeler was looked to as the leader of the team last season, now players will look to the second year players like standout, Megan Geurts. Geurts was unstoppable last season as she led the league in scoring and led her team in almost every major offensive category.
Along with Guerts, was Dannielle Wenzel and Emmie Betz. Both were key contributors as the Tigers made a run for another state championship last season, coming up short in a game against Fullerton
College that ended their season earlier than expected.
The year was bitter sweet for the ladies, but many of them told me that they are ready to get back to form this year and this time take the state championship.
