Last Friday, after the busiest ODP season yet, I announced West Region Championships rosters for USA Water Polo’s Southwest Zone Olympic Development Program. Three AquaTexans were selected to take part in the season-ending tournament: Luca de Araujo, Riley Dixon, and Aaron Gordon. It is the second year running that the three will compete at West Region Championships, this season to be held in San Antonio.
Congratulations to all three. It’s a great point of pride that they are both representing AquaTex and increasing the visibility of Central Texas athletes among Texas and national coaches. Those coaches will be in San Antonio to help choose athletes to try out for the USA’s national Youth, Cadet and Development teams, which will compete internationally this summer and beyond.
