The Calderon family of Chicago has enjoyed great success in water polo at Fenwick during the last decade.

The last of three Calderon siblings begins his final season for the Friars this week. Omar Calderon’s swan song began Monday when he scored three goals to help Fenwick beat visiting Loyola 13-9. He is the only starting senior returning from a Fenwick team that beat Stevenson 10-4 last season to win the school’s 10th state boys water polo championship.

The Friars regained the title after their eight-year streak of championships ended in sectionals against  Lyons, who went on to win state in 2012. Calderon scored 25 goals last season, including one during the state semifinals against Naperville North.

Fenwick won two state championships in his first three years. He enters his fourth varsity season in a new role as a team leader.
