"I am so grateful to Texas for allowing us to compete this weekend. It was amazing to see such high level competition and have top colleges coaches watching live. Most importantly, it made almost 70 kids feel normal again. Life without your favorite thing in the world is tough for a teenager and we were able to give them 4 days of what they have been yearning to do for 10 months. Thank you Texas...6-8 will be back." - Tony Azevedo, 5X Olympian and Silver Medalist and Founder of 6-8...

From USA Water Polo Southwest Zone October 19, 2020 The UIL Legislative Council earlier today decided to postpone the start date for UIL Water Polo to Fall 2022 due to COVID-19 related issues.

On October 21, 2019, water polo became an official UIL Varsity Sport in Texas beginning in fall 2021. UIL is the University Interscholastic League and it oversees the vast majority of athletic, musical, and academic contests for public primary and secondary schools in our state. No other sport has been added since wrestling some 20 years ago. This is a big win for Texas and for water polo, and Pegasus has been and will continue to be a catalyst for growth of water polo in Dallas. Pegasus will seed players...

The Pegasus Blue team came in 4th in the Platinum (highest tier) division, well above their 16th seed. As far as we can tell, this is the best ever result for a Southwest Zone team in this tournament. The team had a number of upsets against much...
