The Santa Clara men's water polo team capped another successful season in 2010 with a 19-15 record and a historic win to tie for a program-best finish of third place in the 2010 Men's Water Polo Association Championships, held at the first time at the Broncos' own Sullivan Aquatic Center.

The season, which was the 6th winning season in the history of Santa Clara men's water polo, was highlighted by two distinct victories. In October, the Broncos registered a 12 10 win over then- No. 9 Pepperdine, only the second-ever SCU victory over a Mountain Pacfic Sports Federation side. In the third place game at the WWPA tournament the Broncos posted their first ever defeat of No. 11 UC San Diego.
