Jody played for the USA Mens National team from 1978 to 1988, winning Silver medals at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in `84 and Seoul in `88. The TYR Champions Cup boys sportsmanship award is given in honor of Jody's commitment to our sport and his dominant play helping put USA men's program on the international map during his career.
Maureen O'Toole Purcell is an accomplished water polo player and coach. In over 30 years in the sport, she has set multiple firsts for women in water polo, and during her playing time was recognized as one of the best water polo players in the world.
