Wow! So is she still trying to balance polo and swimming, or is it full-on polo all the time now?

So we'll be seeing underwater pics of her naughty bits, on the internet, while the opposition tries to wrench her suit off.

Kind of, but Polo has won.

Ok, I'm ignorant about such things. Will she be able to try out for the Olympics?? Didn't she go to the Nationals earlier?

I know you must be very proud of her.

GOAL! She didn't start and they lost their first game, but Polo Girl won her sprint and scored (one of four goals). Next game in an hour.

TWO GOALS. She's being considered for national training camp, but says when they put her in so the evaluator could watch her, she messed up She drove and scored, but she should've passed to set, apparently. ah well. we'll see. not ready to get her fixed yet anyway

Surprise Tournament GOAL! (The tournament was the surprise, not the goal) An an elbow to the oesophagus. Thankfully the headbutt we all thought we saw didn't happen. her game from last night will be on the local tv on Sunday at noon. They do televise a lot of HS sports, especially the cross-town rivalries (which this was), but usually on;y thr boyd.

Played the same cross town team tonight. Kick-out (ejection) in the 12th second.... A penalty (they failed to convert) and a goal. and a couple of assists. getting close to that "gordie Howe"... She rocks. BTW she's been on the starting line-up for varsity all season.

She is icing a cut and duck-egg on her forehead tonight. But she did that by opening the door into her face when we got home

Unfortunately, Gordie Howe = target, also. But she comes from tough stock.
