Highland Park has started a new sport: Water Polo. Water polo is a collegiate and Olympic sport. It is expected that water polo will be the next UIL sport in Texas. Youth ages 7-13 can register for “Intro to Water Polo” classes for $50 for the whole summer, or week specific camps at pegasuswaterpolo.org. No experience necessary – competitive swim background not required.
Coach Spencer Dornin will be the head coach for Highland Park. He is also the coach for Pegasus Water Polo Academy, a club whose 14U coed team won the state championship two years in a row. Coach Dornin won the USA Water Polo Distinguished Coaching Award in 2018. He was on the USA National Team 2000-2007, was All-American and team captain at UC Berkeley and played for professional teams in Hungary, Italy, Australia.
