and Eric Umlauf (in the back). Bill Bartle had an
exraordinary impact on the team's performance.
In his first year with North Penn, the team finished 17th
at states. The following year NP came in second, and
the next two years, first. In the meantime he coached the
water polo team to a state championship and a second
and a third place finish as well.
