The Falcons (10-1) won three straight games over Livermore, California High and Granada to earn the tournament title and the respect of area teams.
Head coach Thad Apanasewicz credited all 10 players on the team for its current success.
"This is the best Freedom team ever for boys water polo," Apanasewicz said. "I can put in any combination and not lose capability. More importantly, each player is more interested in the team's success than what he does individually."
Senior Aaron Apanasewicz led Freedom on offense with 19 goals in three games. Against Cal High in the semifinals he played exceptional defense in the second half, helping the Falcons garner the 8-4 victory.
Freedom High coach Thad Apanasewicz, center, prides his varsity boys water polo team on its depth of talent.
Apanasewicz has been averaging 6.2 goals per game since last Tuesday's home contest against Concord.
"Those goals are a direct result of his teammates running the offense, recognizing the defense and playing unselfishly," Apanasewicz said.
Goalie Rory McMahon, who tallied 36 saves for the weekend, showed his ability to step up at the right moments.
"Rory has improved tremendously since last season and his play has been absolutely key to the team's victory count so far," coach Apanasewicz said.
Garrett Hamilton, Garren Blach, Josh Randles and Taylor Lowry seamlessly defend the hole set. Lowry controlled the center of the pool, averaging four steals a game. He also stepped in to score goals and make assists when needed.
"Taylor has been a stud on defense and his team play on offense is why the team has done so well," coach Apanasewicz said. "He's unselfish and unstoppable on the defensive end of the pool."
Also key to Freedom's success are Kevin Navarro, Robert Ericson, Justin Irwin and Kyle Kohut, who coach Apanasewicz said "round out a team that is interchangeable."
The win at Newark Memorial came just a week after Freedom went 4-1 at the Sierra Shootout to win the consolation championship. The team's first three matches against Irvington, Concord and Antioch also ended victoriously.
The team hosts the two-day Freedom Falcon Challenge in Oakley Oct. 6 and 7.
