But, as his high school swimming star rose, he became a prominent figure in the close-knit club and top-level prep swimming community.
So it was that Crescenta Valley's own resident swimming prodigy, sophomore Division I 200-individual medley champion Young Tae Seo, happened to get word that Wojciechowski was coming to town last spring. The news quickly spread around the aquatics program.
"We were really excited," Colvin says. "We were hoping he would he would come to CV and we were pretty psyched when we heard he would come."
Wojciechowski says adjusting to his new environment over the summer wasn't difficult and that he quickly felt at home on the water polo team.
"It was pretty easy," Wojciechowski says of assimilating into his new community and team. "I [played club water polo at] Rose Bowl [Aquatics] over the summer, so I met a bunch of people and made a bunch of friends fast.
"It's a lot different playing year-round. It's a lot better. It's gone pretty good and I'm enjoying it so far."
But Wojciechowski did have somewhat of a learning curve getting up to speed with varsity water polo, particularly given the Falcons' grueling nonleague schedule to open the season, which included stops in the Thousand Oaks and Oxnard tournaments and matchups with top teams like former Division VI nemesis Rio Mesa.
Despite those early challenges, and likely in many ways because of them, Wojciechowski quickly brought his abilities up to par with his athletic potential.
"It did take him a little while [to get up to speed with varsity]," Sakonju said. "He did play club [water polo], but one of my assistant coaches described him as a JV player in a varsity body, where he has an understanding for the game, but he just doesn't have that experience.
