The Dallas area Prestonwood team won the USPA Central Regional Interscholastic Tournament in Houston, Texas Sunday February 24 and advances to the national competition next week March 15-17 at Empire Polo Club in California. The public is invited to come out and see the Championship winners take their game onto the field when Prestonwood Polo Club hosts their first USPA National Youth Tournament Series April 27-28. Polo clubs all over the country are hosting qualifier tournaments with finals to be held in Virginia over Labor Day Weekend.
Can Prestonwood win in both arena and field categories? Anything is possible and the team is working very hard. 8th grade Vaughn Miller from Highland Park started his polo career playing on the field and says it’s his preferred game. He has played both with his father and against his father, Vaughn Miller, who is the team’s coach, during Prestonwood Polo Clubs polo season for the past two years. Younger brother Vance Miller, 6th grade, has experience on the field playing with the youth league. 9th grader from Little Elm, Ronnie Puentes, helps his grandfather train the polo ponies and spends a lot of time on horseback. Arena Polo seems to be Andrew Garcia’s, a senior from Southlake, strong area, but he’ll bring it on the field, too. Andrew has two brothers that are professional polo players. Polo is definitely a family affair, both on and off the field. Families and their leashed pets are invited to come and cheer them on. Please check website for schedule closer to event date for more details. Grandstand seating, Tailgating, BYOB/Picnic, Bounce house for kids, and fun raffles for team fundraiser will take place in the grand pavilion. Drinks and light snacks are available for purchase.
