Congrats to the entire team on what I would definitely call a successful tournament! I think that everybody would agree that we played some of our best tournament polo in the past few years especially on defense.
Big ups to Tim for organizing the tournament. A lot of behind the scenes work and planning went into this and Tim masterfully put it all together. The other teams were very complimentary of how smoothly things were run and the strong showing that we put on. Also thanks to Craig for his MC duties and a lucrative T Shirt sales campaign and to everybody else that contributed to running the show.
I would be remiss if I did not highlight the play of Nate who was named to the all Tournament Team. He won countless sprints and kept us in a lot of the games with his speed and scoring. Word on the street is that he also won some accolades for his performance at the social on Saturday night. Sorry Novak.
I always like to point out a few highlights from the weekend, which in this case was watching George force out Nova’s 240 lb lefty hole set from two meters. Of all the people that defended that guy this weekend George was the only person who literally forced him to give up & get out. The Sushkoff Express at its best. An honorable mention to Coach Heinrich for his half time speech against VMI. I felt like I had just watched the movie Rudy and I am sure you all noticed that our female star Ashley scored within the first 12 seconds of the 3rd Qtr following Kevin’s motivational words.
Again…great play from everybody this weekend and we’ve got a lot to look forward to with some of the upcoming tournaments. See ya’ll out at the pool.
