Fordham Water Polo Announces JSerra’s Clinkinbeard Will Join In 2010

From Fordham University’s website.

Ben Clinkinbeard, a JSerra 2010 graduate, will attend Fordham University in the fall where he will play water polo.

Fordham head coach Bill Harris announced the team’s incoming athletes in a press release on the team’s website. “The new recruits are all talented athletes coming from strong high school and club programs,” said Harris. “These incoming athletes will give us more depth in the field and especially in the goal where we had only one true goalie last season. They will be the foundation for our future success and will make our team stronger for the 2010 season. I look forward to working with them in the fall.”

The article spoke to the talent of each incoming athlete: “Clinkinbeard, a 5-8 attacker, was a two-time All-League selection at JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, California. A two-year captain, he earned First Team All-League honors as a junior and led JSerra Catholic to its first CIF Championship final.”

Clinkinbeard was a 2006 Junior Olympics gold medalist and was named a First Team SPARE All-American in 2008. While at JSerra, Clinkinbeard was named to the honor roll all four years.
