Cardinal Adds West Temkin

STANFORD, Calif. - The Cardinal has added former Princeton goalkeeper West Temkin, The Dunlevie Family Director of Men's Water Polo Brian Flacks announced today. Temkin made 179 saves in 17 games, all starts, as a sophomore last season.

"West is one of the best young goalies in the United States, and we're thrilled to welcome him to The Farm," said Flacks. "I had the privilege of coaching West on the USA National Youth Team when he was 16 years old, and I can't wait to get the opportunity to coach him again. West is the ultimate competitor, and he's found a way to win at every single level he's competed at. With West and Griffen [Price] in the cage, I'm confident we'll have the best goalkeeping tandem in the United States."

As a freshman in 2022 Temkin racked up 154 saves in 17 starts, including a career high 18 vs. No. 20 St. Francis Brooklyn on October 29.

"I want to thank all of the Stanford coaching staff for this amazing opportunity and I cannot wait to get to work," said Temkin. "I am really grateful for my time at Princeton and I am super fortunate to have been able to grow under the support of both the Princeton players and coaches. I am extremely excited for this next chapter, the job has just begun!"

Temkin returns to Northern California after attending Campolino High School in Moraga. Temkin is the second incoming transfer of the year for the Card, after adding Dash McFarland in March.
