PSJA Water Polo Highlighted by Local TV News

PSJA’s first girls water polo team was recently featured by KRGV news. The Javelinas of Southwest HS and their consolidated high school teams recently competed in our West Region Championships and are poised for yet more growth with the addition of Los Fresnos in 2018 and likely more this coming Spring.

USA Water Polo shared the story on Twitter.

WATCH: Boerne Sea Bears Headed to JOs

West Region Consolidated Champs Beorne Water Polo has caught the attention of the San Antonio broadcast media.

The Sea Bears, as the team is called, are featured in this KENS5 story on Boerne’s qualification for this summer’s USA Water Polo Junior Olympics tournament in California. Boerne defeated Longhorn Aquatics for the TISCA West Region Consolidated title in April. The team boasts athletes from a variety of San Antonio Northiside ISD high schools including O’Connor and Clark.

Formed in 2013 the Boerne club has quickly established itself as an outlet for the competitive demands of San Antonio’s youth athletes, especially at the high school level. The 18u boys team placed fifth at the Southwest Zone Championships held at Strake Jesuit in Houston on June 11-12.

Three clubs located in the West Region – Boerne, Longhorn, and Zilla – have qualified for the biggest youth tournament in the world to be held in San Jose, CA at the end of July. It is the greatest number of clubs from the region ever to participate in Junior Olympics.

Updated, 10 July:

KSAT is now in on the story and visited the Sea Bears at one of their practices prior to the Junior Olympics tournament.
