Water Polo teams growing in Park Cities and North Dallas
It is hoped that water polo will be the next UIL-sponsored sport in Texas and it looks like the Park Cities will have a number of strong athletes to field the teams. Several of the youth who were on the state-winning team last Spring in Austin were also recently selected by USA Water Polo to represent the Southwest zone at the Olympic Development Program National Championships in March in Riverside, California.
