Sports Club MVP gets wet
Kyle Harvey of the Sonoma State Water Polo Club has earned a place as this month's Sports Club MVP. The senior from Monterey has been an exceptional student and athlete on campus, and is finally getting that recognition by being named the MVP. Though Harvey is currently unemployed, the young man carries a very respectable 3.0 GPA and spends most of his time playing polo.
"I started playing in high school pretty much because my friends played, and they happened to talk me into it," said Harvey. "I was pretty surprised to receive the award, because I didn't think our club was big enough to get recognized."
This is the sixth year that the senior has played water polo and he has no plans of stopping anytime soon.
"Water polo is an intense sport, but that's what makes it fun," said Harvey. "I've met a lot of good friends through playing water polo."
The Water Polo Club scrimmages a little bit everyday and practices twice a week. The club has been in motion for two years, but has yet to play their first official game.
"No one wanted to travel, but lately our school, along with others, have gotten more serious about water polo, so games will be played on a regular occurrence," said the MVP.
Harvey's passion for the sport comes from multiple benefits it brings to his personal life, such as by boosting his confidence, releasing stress and staying in shape.
"Being in a sports club has allowed me continue to play a game that I love, and also getting in the pool and throwing the ball around is a good way to relieve stress," said Harvey
Like most college students, Harvey enjoys eating, sleeping and hanging out with his homies in his free time.
"If I could be any kitchen utensil, I would be a pasta scoop because I can't get enough pasta," joked Harvey.
Harvey's favorite show growing up was "Rocko's Modern Life," showing a funny side to the man behind the Speedos. So ladies, if you're craving some Harvey, boil up some pasta, put on a little "Rocko's Modern Life" and let the good times roll.
The water polo team has basically been training for two years for their upcoming game. All of their hard work can pay off as they get ready to face San Francisco State University, also a new club team, in a battle for supremacy. The game is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 28, and will be the first club water polo game hosted at home.
