The USCA Polo team beat Virginia Tech this weekend, with a final score of 20-1.
The Pacers came out charging as soon as the first ball was put into play at the only home game of the season.
“It’s the first season,” commented Coach Tiger Kneece. “We’re fortunate to get it up and going so quick.”
The Polo team consists of three freshmen players, who have worked together since high school.
“It’s a ton of fun,” said Jim Deal, a member of the team.
After practicing twice more on their home field, the Pacers will make their way to compete at the University of Virginia in the United States Polo Association (USPA) tournament.
“Hopefully, in the future, more players join and expand the team,” said Harry Caldwell, a player who has a handicap of three in the arena.
“It’s been a bumpy season to start with,” admitted his brother, Charlie Caldwell, who is also a member of the team, adding that he remains “pretty confident.”
“This is the highest score this season for us,” said Kneece. “Team’s getting together and it’s starting to feel good.”
The team’s next game will fall in mid-February at the USPA tournament at the University of Virginia. For more information, contact Marissa Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
