Water Polo News!

This past weekend, eleven of the senior-level boys participated in
their first water polo tournament.  The tournament took place in Toledo with
eight teams from Ohio and Michigan.  The boys had one game on Friday night
and three on Saturday.  I was lucky enough to watch all four games and
enjoyed them tremendously.  While it was obvious that the boys had much to
learn, their improvement was evident with each game.  By the fourth game,
the boys were extremely competitive and lost only in the last minute by two
points.  It was very exciting!

The sport of water polo is fun, exciting, and involves a huge amount of
exercise and strategy.  We are fortunate that the Solon Stars Swim Club has
added this extra opportunity for our swimmers.  We want to thank the coaches
and those on the board for making this sport available to our children.
Most of all, we want to thank Coach Johnny for his efforts to bring water
polo to the Stars, and for his wonderful coaching.  Throughout each game, he
was teaching strategy and giving encouragement and reinforcement to the
players.  The boys also had a great time staying overnight in Toledo on
their "road trip." 

We encourage all of our swimmers to consider taking part in this new
and fun endeavor.  It would be wonderful to put forth a competitive team
when the season starts again in the spring.  We also encourage the parents
of our water polo players to attend the games and cheer them on.  Even if
you do not have a child on the team, come and see what the sport is all
about.
