The Tribune is counting down our top five male and female athletes, as well as teams for the 2017-18 athletic season. Our No. 2 male athlete of the year is Grand Haven’s Mason Fritz. Fritz established himself as one of the state’s premier water polo players before adding two new varsity sports to his resume in his senior year.
Mason Fritz began his senior water polo season this past fall as a one-sport athlete. After a summer playing for a San Diego water polo club, living in the city with his mother, it was all-or-nothing in the pool for 2017.
