My Town Rockford: State lawmakers welcome Rockford water polo team to Capitol

ROCKFORD, Mich.—The Rockford boys’ water polo team got a warm welcome while visiting the Capitol recently.

State Reps. Peter MacGregor and Rob VerHeulen honored the team for back-to-back state championship victories.

“Few high school teams come together with as much success as the Rockford Rams have experienced over the past two years, and I am excited to celebrate this second state championship with them,” said MacGregor, R-Cannon Township. “I wish them even more success in the future, both in the pool and in the classroom.”

The Rams had a perfect 100-0 over the past two seasons, defeating Ann Arbor Pioneer 6-4 in November to earn their 10th title in school history.

“I am glad we could meet with Coach Dave McWatters and these exceptional young men today and congratulate them on their accomplishments,” said VerHeulen, R-Walker. “They are all fine representatives of the entire Rockford community.”
