Austin College wins CWPA Division III Championship
Coaches Shannon and Kendall both scored in Austin College’s demolition of Wittenberg College in the final match of the Collegiate Water Polo Association Division III Championships on Saturday. The final tally was 20-6 with AC leading the entire way after Coach Shannon scored the first goal of the match, played at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI.
The Kangaroos end the season with a record of 6-2 and their first ever conference title after placing second in 2019. Austin College is only the fourth women’s team ever to win the title since the tournament was established in 2010. Their two losses came versus University of the Pacific, a Division I team currently ranked 12th in the CWPA polls. Austin College made history by earning its first ever top-25 ranking after beating Division II Gannon and Mercyhurst in March.
Congratulations to Kendall and Shannon. It’s a great moment for them, their team, AND the AquaTex family. #proudcoach #back2back2022
All you need to know about this weekend’s TAGS tournament in Pearland is here. The schedule is out (8am Saturday game?!) and we’re stoked to be playing with our friends from Longhorn. We have some big rosters, which is exciting, and newcomers to the sport playing for the first time. I will be coaching the 8th grade u team with Coach Tom’s help, and he’ll lead the 6th grade u team.
Athletes need to be together at the facility with a coach 45 minutes before game time. Don’t forget!
We announced our newest program for our youngest athletes today. It’s kind of a big deal so read more about it here.
Jordan and William are our newest members and will be playing for AquaTex 6th grade u at TAGS! That’s the way to start. Welcome to them and their families.
Masters will take place this Sunday from noon to 1:30 PM, after our youth practice. Fees are $10.00/session cash or venmo. Pay cash to Coach Matt or Alon.
