Check out this great article about Stanford Club alum Pippa Temple. She’s a key player for Princeton – come out and see her play this weekend!
2015 is the 20th year of the Stanford Girls Water Polo Club and we’re going to celebrate next month! Our reunion weekend will take place on Friday June 26 and Saturday June 27, and all the current club members will be involved.
Our summer tradition of club players doing reports on the USA National Team or players from international teams is taking a twist – we are going to do reports on our club alums!
Many of the alums have been in touch about the reunion and they are so excited to see their teammates and coaches – and play some polo as well. They can’t wait to hear from you and share their water polo stories and talk about their lives beyond the sport. These women are great role models and will inspire you as you think about your future in athletics, academics, and career.
Contact Coach Kyle (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be assigned an alum to contact, interview, and report on. Be sure to include your age. Kyle will give you the guidelines for the interview and contact info. All 2015 Cal Cup team members are required to participate in this activity.
If your alum is attending the reunion, there will be a brunch on Saturday June 27 for you to meet up with them before the alumni games!
