Don’t you miss hanging out with your old water polo teammates in university or beating your rivals in a “friendly” scrimmage? Then grab your favorite swimsuits, call your teammates up and jump into Boston University’s pool on April 27-28. BU’s Men’s and Women’s Water Polo are hosting the Austin Brashears Invitational, an alumni tournament for teams in the Boston area. Each team will play three games. Please RSVP by April 10th and reserve your spot with a check made payable to Boston University for $300. Help spread the word to other schools! Hope to see you then!
Austin Brashears was a mechanical engineer student at BU but he lost his life on Saturday May 12, 2012. He was studying abroad in New Zealand when a tragic car accident took his and two other students’ lives. Not only was Austin the captain of the Men’s Water Polo team, he was actively involved as a leader in the College of Engineering community. The team missed him dearly and will never forgot their warm-hearted, fierce, hard-working captain.
The Lady Terriers started their season off right last weekend with three wins and one very close loss.
First, the Terriers went up against Dartmouth, who has had a very strong team for the past two years. In 2010 and 2011, Dartmouth and Boston College have contended for the title of League Champions. This weekend, the Terriers came out on top defeating Dartmouth with a final score of 9-5.
The Terrier’s second game, Yale, was the toughest one of the weekend. The Terriers endured a tough loss to the Bulldogs with a final score of 9-8 but plan on making a comeback at the next tournament in April.
In the third game of the day, the Terriers took on Williams and came out with a win and a final score of 13-5. This was an especially satisfying win for the Terriers who were unexpectedly defeated by Williams at last year’s Championship tournament.
The last game of the weekend against the newest addition to the New England Division, Middlebury, turned out to be a success for the Terriers who took the game with a final score of 11-5.
With such a strong start to the season, the Terriers are hoping to go all the way this year!
A special thanks to the Rubel family for hosting our team this weekend! Thank you so much opening your beautiful home to us!
