The YCF Water Polo Gladiators 14U team recently traveled to Dallas to compete in the national youth water polo championships, better known as the TYR Cup. The TYR Cup is USA Water Polo’s most prestigious annual competition.
“It was a great honor for our athletes to have had the opportunity to compete on the national stage against the very best team in the county,” coach Randy Walters said.
The Gladiators consist of local players, including Anthony Battestella, Collin Haugh, Dane Coniglio, Jacob Harkins, Matias Vallejo, Max Meisenheimer, Isaac Teran, Liam Creus, James Sweet, Daniel Magrino and Harrison Michas. The team is coached by Walters, Ann Plintneck and Jess Passwater.
The Gladiators practice at the YMCA Aquatic Center on International Drive.
