Charlie Clark, John Caruso, Spencer Plavoukos and Thomas Hoffmeister began their respective high school water polo careers as freshmen in 2016 and today, they have the distinction of being the first group of captains that will have spent four seasons on Greenwich’s varsity A team.
“This is the 45th season of the program, so to be the first set of captains to do that is very impressive,” Cardinals water polo coach Paul Ramaley said. “They are a strong, experienced group.”
The foursome contributed to Greenwich’s 26-4 2018 season that concluded with a first-place finish at the Mid-Atlantic Championships. They figure to once again, spark the Cardinals, who are determined to continue their successful tradition, which has spanned more than four decades.
The Greenwich High School boys water polo team won the Mid-Atlantic championship over the weekend. Greenwich capped its season with a record of 26-4 and a first-place finish at the Mid-Atlantic Championship.

Greenwich High School concluded its water polo season in championship style.
After losing in the championship games of the Beast of the East Tournament in September and its own Cardinal Tournament, Greenwich capped its season with a first-place finish at the Mid-Atlantic Championships this past weekend. The Cardinals posted a 10-5 win over Navy Aquatic Club in the championship match.
“The boys really wanted to end their season on a high note,” GHS second-year head coach Jimmy Ramaley said. “Despite not winning those tournaments, I am really pleased with the way the team performed all the way to the end. They definitely deserved this championship.”
The Greenwich High School Water Polo was founded by Hall of Fame Coach Terry Lowe in 1975. The 4-6 record that year is the team’s only losing season. Since then, the Big Red polo team has had four undefeated seasons, its most recent, 35-0 in 2003. The team has won the Eastern Interscholastic Championship eighteen times. Since the creation of the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches’ Association Water Polo recognition program in 1980, Greenwich has had at least one All-American player each year. Graduating GHS players have been successful on the top collegiate teams across the country. Many have served as captains of their college teams. Two have played on NCAA championship teams: Jeff Stiling (GHS1978) at Stanford and Joe Cosentino (GHS 2004) at USC.
