Updated: Out of town visitors joined for scrimmage on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at CV

Update:

Salem’s women water polo players came up Interstate 79 in a team van for a long-session of continual water polo play, scoreless, scrimmage-style. Salem had two on its bench. Renegades had three. Everyone got lots of action.

In the future weeks, Salem’s first games of the season include the opponents of Harvard and Bucknell.

Salem’s squad features three players from Australia (all from Brisbane area), and two from California, plus others from Italy, Greece, Romania, Ohio and The Netherlands. Nearly all of the Salem players are freshmen too.

Prior

The event is confirmed. Water polo practice on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, is going to include some out of town college players from Salem, WV. Get over to play, watch, help, cheer, or swim in the other pool from 7:30 to 9 pm.

If you are interested, give Coach Mark a call or text, 412-298-3432.

Joining with the NA Alumni Game Day

The North Allegheny Alumni, Masters & HS Players are able to engage in a fun game day the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 24, 2018, from noon to 4 pm.

For those that haven’t participated in the past all the players come and hang around and enjoy some laughs and fun time together. The teams play intermittently throughout the tournament time. The HS players may play against the Alumni for a couple of quarters and then the Masters might play the Alumni. The players all have a fun time and most players don’t want to miss it and work their holiday plans around the event.

This is also a great time that the Parents of previous players get to connect and enjoy each others company as well just in time for the holidays.

There is no RSVP just show up and enjoy the company of those that have played for most of their lives and those that are just starting their journey in the World of Water Polo.

I hope to see all of you there.

P.S. If you know someone who might not have received this notice, please forward it to them.
