ODP’s done, Flower Mound is on top, ‘Roos play four in CA
There’s too much stuff to cover for a clever description here. How about some bullet points? ODP is over and James is proud of his Southwest Zone boys. Then he whines about two one-goal losses to California teams. Joe insults his ability to coach defense. Joe gets his coaching
Lions and Falcons on top, players of the week, and ODP (finally!)
We asked for your input and we really got it. The first week of prep (sorry. high school) water polo ended with St. Mark’s and Foster on top of the tables according to our very first coaches’ panel vote. Then with your nominations we give credit to those high
