Lions News · Senior Shout Out! Tom Dempsey – Water Polo and Swim


Tom became an instant game changer when we became a member of the Arlington boys water polo team. He has played water polo for the past 9 years, 3 of them at Arlington and for his club team CHAWP.  He received First Team All-League honors in 2019 along with a Scholar Athlete Award. He contributed to the teams effort as they made a three year consecutive run in the CIF playoffs in 2017, 2018 and 2019. He not only racked up the awards in water polo but won many individual events participating in swim. As a team, Arlington won the 200 freestyle relay and 200 medley relay to clinch the League Championship in 2018-2019. Tom has plans to continue playing water polo/swim at the next level when he attends RCC in the fall. He would like to thank Coach Ward and Coach Adam for making him the player he is today and give a special shout out to his parents “Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made for me”. We wish him the best of luck next year at RCC. Once a lion always a lion. LION PRIDE!
