Lone Star League Champs! AQTX Waterpolo Quick Hits 1/30

1/30/18 Quick Hits

Lone Star Polar Bear Champs!

The 2017-18 Polar Bear League ended with some serious hardware for our youngsters. Our 8th graders brought home the gold, and 6th graders the silver to finish the season! Both of the groups combined with Longhorn to leave UT with some new medals for the showcase.

For the 8th graders (photo on the left), Nilmary scored her first goal of the year (it's addictive!) and Riley continues to impress with some serious defensive skills.

Our awesome 6th graders played better than ever. Our newest member, Austin, showed off his new skills in a big way. Joey keeps putting the pressure on his opponents both on offense and defense. Luca displayed a lethal lefty shooting arm, and Brandon continues to be a counter attack and scoring monster.

Best of all, our athletes are playing like a team more than ever. Congratulations to all of them and Coach Jill for getting them ready.

Our 12th Grade team was made up entirely of AquaTex athletes for the first time, a huge step in the right direction. In an exhibition win against the Polo Bears our newest athletes, Brandon and Ethan, made huge progress after just a couple weeks of experience. Plus Riley and Brandon (the other one) got some good experience against older athletes. Longhorn and Zilla were both strong opponents, but once again some very good experience for us, especially in an improved performance against the eventual champions from Longhorn.

Well done to Zairis, Chris B., Michael, Jake, Kendall, Delaney, Callie, Trevor, Brandon, Ethan and Brandon (the other one!).

See the final results here. Details of the Lone Star Spring League are coming very soon.
