The first-ever Pegasus Water Polo all-girls team competed at the high school level at the Thunder Spring Invite in Southlake in January 2020. Several of the girls played up into the age group. The girls won one game and lost another, and celebrated the ability of playing together as the inaugural girls' team in their age group as water polo expands quickly in Dallas!

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...
