Water polo may be a niche sport in New York City, but don't tell that to players like Ethan Moy, who have spent many years honing their skills in this most demanding of aquatic sports. 

Coached by Zoli Danko, as part of Mako Polo of Imagine Swimming, Moy walked on at Washington & Jefferson last fall for W&J Head Coach Nikola Malezanov. A graduate of the High School for Math, Science, Engineering at City College, Moy didn’t plan to play polo his freshman year, but the native New Yorker provide much needed depth to a thin Presidents roster.

Swimming World spoke with Moy last month about the challenges of playing polo in NYC and his new athletic career in Erie, PA, home of Washington & Jefferson.
